Found November 07, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
The New York Giants lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend for a number of reasons, one of them being their poor play defensively. One of the reasons the Steelers were able to overcome a number of poor calls from the officials was that they moved the ball and established a solid running game. On Monday, Tom Coughlin called his defense out for the lackluster performance. “It was soft, no question,” Coughlin said according to The Star-Ledger. “It was soft early. We came back and played a little bit better and then they had their breakout there at the end of the game.” Even Justin Tuck agreed that the Giants’ defensive front seven was “mushed” around by the Steelers offensive lineman. Considering the fact that Isaac Redman ran for 147 yards on 26 carries, that seems fairly obvious. “Not to the point where they were more physical than us,” Tuck asserted. “But to the point where you got a guy in the gap and Redman was just behind his guard, behind his guard, and a guy jumps out of ...

Animated Gif: Steelers Offensive Line & Tight End Heath Miller Help Convert Key 3rd Down

One of the most important runs that the Pittsburgh Steelers had Sunday in their win over the New York Giants came on their final scoring drive when they were faced with a third down and 2 situation from the Giants 9 yard-line with 5:03 left in the game.

An Appreciation of Steelers Heath Miller in Just One Play

I’ve written plenty of pieces on Heath Miller and there has never been one that hasn’t been deserved which means there hasn’t been a bad one. What can you really say negatively about this guy? Well, he did drop a pass Sunday against the Giants so away with him! Not really… Actually, there was another play in the win over New York that I thought epitomized the hard work and...

Steelers secondary thriving without Polamalu

The Pittsburgh Steelers secondary is finding there is life without injured star safety Troy Polamalu. The Steelers are first in the NFL in passing yards allowed, giving up just 174 per game.
