Predicting Steelers 2019 Starting Lineup with Grades Pt. 2 – The Defense

On paper the Steelers’ ‘D’ didn’t look too bad last year. They ranked 9th in overall yardage given up, 6th against rush and 10th against the pass. They led the league, tying with Kansas City for most sacks with 52. They were 12th in pass deflections. Where they started to get in trouble was points scored against,...

Predicting Steelers 2019 Starting Lineup with Grades Pt. 1 – The Offense

This year, the Steelers will have to face the ‘new Patriots’ in the AFC North (sarcasm emoji). So many sports pundits have been predicting Pittsburgh’s demise, it’s like the team shouldn’t even bother to show up for the 2019 season.  A lot of nonsense has been said about the departure of ‘me first, nobody else...

Hey, Steelers Coaches, TE Zach Gentry Already CAN Block. Here’s Proof!!!

I’m sick of the hearing the Steelers’ coaches parroting that newly drafted Tight End, Zach Gentry, can’t block and that his receiving game is ahead of inline TE game. Only in Opposite World is that true. I’ve included game film so everybody can see what I’m seeing. Here is what I wrote about Gentry in my ‘Steelers...

Steelers 2019 Draft Review – All Rounds with Grades and Video!!!

First of all I’ve got to start with Kevin Colbert and an ongoing flaw in his draft strategy. Last year the Steelers biggest free agent signing was Safety Morgan Burnett. This was a very solid signing of an experienced, proven NFL starter who could ably man either Strong Safety or Free Safety positions. So, you think ‘Good,...
