Improvement in the Steelers’ Kicking Game Can Benefit the Younger Defense

The most  forgotten part of the game of football is the kicking game and while NFL coaches will tell you that they stress its’ importance, kicking or special teams’ miscues are often the difference between a win and a loss. As the Steelers look to make their 3-4 defense younger and faster, they’ll still need to take advantage of every possible thing they can. Improvements...

Steelers’ Punter Search Won’t Include Pat McAfee

The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly figure to be in the market for a new punter this offseason, given that all three punters that spent even a second on the roster last year are either not on the team or will be a free agent on Tuesday. But that search will not include Pat McAfee, who re-signed with the Indianapolis Colts on a five-year contract worth close to $3 million per season...

Steelers 2013 Player Evaluations By Position – Specialists

By Alex Kozora A Pittsburgh Steelers player by player recap, grouped by position, reviewing the 2013 season. Getting closer to the end. Due up, the specialists. Shaun Suisham: Kicker is a position fans tend to toss barbs at but it’s difficult to fault Suisham. Aside from a tough game against Oakland, and to put all the blame on him for the loss is asinine, he didn’t miss a kick...

Steelers Early Offseason Positional Draft Needs – Specialists

By Matthew Marczi Ask any Pittsburgh Steelers fan now and he’ll tell you that the offseason began way too early for their team, which even according to team president Art Rooney II should have been in the playoffs.

Special Teams Signings Could Suggest Steelers Have Diagnosed A Problem

By Matthew Marczi The Pittsburgh Steelers may have taken a step in the right direction yesterday when they signed Bryce Davis—a long snapper—and Brad Wing—a punter. That step: diagnosing a problem. Selecting these two special teams players as their first signings from outside the organization could suggest that the Steelers see a need to improve these positions in 2014. Whether...

Steelers Suffer Total Team Loss As Playoff Hopes Diminish

You’re blaming the defense right? And you over there, you’re blaming the offense right? Not to be outdone is the guy over there who claims the special teams cost the Pittsburgh Steelers today.

Steelers Versus Ravens – First Half Notes And Observations – Week 13

By Matthew Marczi The decision to run on third and 12 in the beginning of the game seemed stupid at first, until you noticed the way the Ravens were lined up on defense. It was tempting to run through that hole. And it was probably closer to working than you’d think. Mat McBriar had his best game so far…not that anyone cares. The officials likely gave William Gay a break on...

Pittsburgh Not Amused After Special Teams Made The Butt Of The Joke

By Matthew Marczi In a game that saw Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker send a quintuplet of pigskins through the uprights in what was ultimately a two-point loss, the special teams performance of the Pittsburgh Steelers should probably be credited with assists on a pair of those field goals. First, there was the comical ‘cadence’ issue on the lone field goal attempt by Shaun...

Jason Worilds Played A Complete Game Against The Browns

By Matthew Marczi It’s been no secret that fourth-year outside linebacker Jason Worilds has really begun to come into his own over the course of the last two games. He registered nearly double-digit pressures this week against the Cleveland Browns despite not actually registering a sack, but he did bring down their quarterbacks—both of them—seven times. Early in the second...

Steelers Versus Lions – Second Half Notes And Observations

By Matthew Marczi The Steelers could not have gotten off to a worse finish in the first half, giving up 27 unanswered points and shooting themselves in the foot on offense. A three-and-out to open the third quarter did not ease the tension. Unlike in the first half, however, Mat McBriar got off an excellent punt that truly flipped the field, with the returner being run out of bounds...
