Found September 24, 2012 on Steelers Depot:
Rookie Kelvin Beachum starts the second half with a false start. Ben Roethlisberger was off the mark trying to drop a deep ball into Mike Wallace and the Steelers are facing second and long. On third down Roethlisberger misses Antonio Brown on the right sideline that would have likely moved the chains. The Steelers quarterback was able to make a clutch throw to Wallace on third down to move the chains. After two nice strikes to Brown the offense has great rhythm and the pass protection is good to boot. The touchdown pass to Wallace was just Ben being Ben and keeping the play alive long enough for Read more [...]

Roethlisberger Claims He Called Plays Not In The Playbook

Despite the 34-31 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a solid performance, and evidently that performance included him calling some plays that weren't even in the Todd Haley Rosetta Stone playbook. Ken Laird of Trib Live Radio reported via Twitter after the game that Roethlisberger, who was 36-of-49 passing in the game...

Roethlisberger a master on 3rd downs, but how long can it last?

If there’s one thing that an offense hates, other than turnovers, it’s 3rd and long. You make yourself much more predictable to the defense and let’s face it, most teams don’t have many 3rd and 20 plays in their offensive game plan. The Steelers have been making a living out of converting large down and distance situations through the first 2 weeks of the season, but how...

Report: Roethlisberger & Haley Had First “Incident” In Season Opener

We apparently have already had our first in-game "incident" between Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and new offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Sunday morning that Roethlisberger and Haley had a disagreement during the Steelers opening Sunday night loss to the Denver Broncos, but that the quarterback says...

Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger Held Scoreless In The 4th Quarter To Lose To The Raiders

If someone would have told you before the game started that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger would be held scoreless by the Oakland Raiders for the entire fourth quarter would you have believed them? It isn’t often when you see anytime deny Roethlisberger access to putting some kind of points on the board at the end of a game. That is exactly what took place today...

Big Ben: No issues with Todd Haley

After originally saying that he and Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley had "one little incident," Ben Roethlisberger later said the issue was blown out of proportion.

The root of the Steelers loss to the Raiders

The final score was 31-34 in Oakland, which is a place the Pittsburgh Steelers generally play poorly. However, if the Steelers were going to lose in Oakland most would have expected an offense that couldn’t move the ball while giving up touchdowns on special teams and turnovers. While there were turnovers and special teams were leaky, that wasn’t why the Steelers lost the game...

En Fuego: Ben Roethlisberger

Thanks for believing in me Juan… Remember when Big Ben and Todd Haley were at odds?  That was so 2 months ago.  Remember when Mike Wallace was holding out and wouldn’t be up to snuff for the first month of the season?  That was so last month. Big Ben was an afterthought in fantasy drafts for me as he has really only has one big season and is usually ho-hum as a fantasy QB...

Steelers collapse in Oakland, lose 34-31

I missed the first 3 quarters of this one, but it sounds like every Steelers/Raiders game from the past few years. The Steelers jumped out to a 24-14 lead in the 3rd quarter on a Mike Wallace touchdown catch, but the defense squandered the lead in a 2nd half where Oakland scored every time they saw the ball. Sebastian Janikowski booted a 44 yard field goal as time expired to complete...

Onward Steelers; It’s Time to Accept This is a Passing Offense

If you haven’t come to the realization that the Pittsburgh Steelers are a pass-first team then perhaps you’ve been watching re-runs of the Seventies’ Steelers. Art Rooney II can say Ben Roethlisberger needs to ‘tweak his game’ all he wants to but I didn’t see anything that needed tweaking yesterday in the 34-31 loss to Oakland. You want to do some tweaking Mr. Rooney...

Steelers' Aerial Attack Ready for Takeoff

The Steelers have a big matchup advantage today against the cornerback-depleted Oakland Raiders. The question is: Will they turn Ben Roethlisberger and his boys loose.

Hritz: Steelers Versus Raiders Preview & Prediction

By Jeremy Hritz Week three is here, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are making the trip to Oakland to take on the 0-2 Oakland Raiders. While it appears that this is an easy victory with all of the injuries in the Raiders secondary, there are no such things as gimme in the NFL. The last time the Steelers played in Oakland in 2006, Ben Roethlisberger played a horrific game, throwing two...

Steelers Offensive & Defensive Snap Counts: Week 3 Raiders

Below are the week 3 official gamebook snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-31 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. These counts also include penalty plays in addition. Offensively not much sticks out participation wise as the Steelers ran quite a bit of 11 personnel in the game that utilized 3 wide receivers on the field. The snaps for both Leonard Pope and David Paulson...

Monday Morning Chrysler New Yorker

I'm struggling with trying to come up with a way to sum up this game. I mean Ben and the passing game played their hearts out, and without some mindboggling fumbles by Dwyer and Antonio Brown, or if AB's punt return TD doesn't get called back, then we have a Steelers blowout and there's nonstop positivity heading in to the bye week. Didn't happen. 34-31 Raiders...

The Home Dogs Do It Again…

We had 7 home dogs on Sunday and how did they fair? 4-3 ATS to extend their record to 12-6 ATS on the year. This week wasn’t as damaging to road favorites as week 2. In week 2, the road dogs went 5-1 ATS. As you should know by now, stay away from betting against home dogs. If you do, pick your battles and proceed with caution. As I stated before I even got into the picks, I hated...
