I hope you enjoyed the press man coverage that Dick LeBeau used almost exclusively this past Sunday against the New England Patriots because I know I certainly did. LeBeau has been visibly laying that ground work of this switch ever since James Harrison has been sidelined as the Steelers have been forced to play more dime and big nickel with 6 defensive backs over the last 4 weeks and perhaps even longer. The real early sign that LeBeau had this up his sleeve was against the Cardinals two weeks ago when rookie Cortez Allen saw the field for 10 snaps in the dime. Up until that point, Allen only Read more [...]Dick LeBeau Was Not Insane, He Just Needed Time & Personnel is a post from: Steelers Depot

Ed Bouchette reported this morning that inside linebacker James Farrior could be out until December with a torn calf. Farrior was inactive yesterday against the Patriots, so Larry Foote started in his place and Stevenson Sylvester started along side him in the Steelers base defense. Farrior injured his calf against the Cardinals. In addition to Farrior, outside linebacker LaMarr...
Hines Ward has been out with an ankle injury, and says he did not play last weekend because he knew his team was good enough to beat the Patriots and their weak secondary.
I definitely was not surprised that Clark was fined for a hit he placed on Patriots TE Ron Gronkowski. Gronkowski was already out of bounds when Clark laid one of his patent hits on Gronkowski. The hit drew a personal foul on the play. According to my calculation the Steelers are now up to $142,500 in fines for the 2011 season.
So, here is my tally for Steelers fines thus...
You may remember Pittsburgh Steelers second year receiver Antonio Brown from the pre-season, when he unveiled a hilarious touchdown dance after a spectacular catch (see here). After Brown scored his first career receiving touchdown in yesterday’s game against the Patriots he broke out the dance for an encore performance: Brown is currently enjoying a nice [...]
Steelers Linebacker LaMarr Woodley was name AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October. This is no surprise Woodley was completely dominant. Woodley had 7.5 sacks in the month of October, the second highest in one month in franchise history. His sack yards were 56.5 yards which is the highest in one month in franchise history.
This is great thing for Woodley, and to find...
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley’s hamstring injury is not looking good according to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Woodley could potentially miss an extended amount of time, which wouldn’t be good with all of the injuries the Steelers already have at the linebacker position. Right now it looks like rookie Chris Carter will replace [...]
Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro outside linebacker James Harrison said he won't play Sunday night against the Baltimore Ravens after suffering an orbital fracture earlier this season against the Houston Texans.
"Saw the doctor today," Harrison wrote. "Looks like I won't be playing this weekend but at least I'm cleared for practice."
Troy Polamalu violated an NFL rule when he slapped the ball into the back of the end zone for a safety in the Pittsburgh Steelers' victory over the New England Patriots.
The Steelers broke out a new game plan to stop Tom Brady and the Patriots' offense, and they executed it as well as any defense has against New England in quite some time. It was so effective that the Patriots are going to have to prove they can defeat similar schemes in the coming weeks because Pittsburgh's defensive looks will surely be replicated by the Patriots' future...
Coach insists Ravens just as inspired to win Sunday night as Steelers areIn the aftermath of the Ravens’ 35-7 demolition of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 11, several Steelers players said they would remember what they deemed questionable behavior by the Ravens.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who passed for a season-high 365 yards and two touchdowns in a 25-17 victory against the New England Patriots, was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week -- the second time he won the award in the month of October.
Mike Prisuta feels that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin went too far with his respect for the Baltimore Ravens the other day. And the video bares out they are not the '67 Packers.
