Steelers survive second half mistakes…beat Broncos!

September 20th, 2020

It was a tale of two halves, the Steelers dominated the first two quarters and then made several key mistakes to almost blow a 14-point lead and the game to the Denver Broncos! The Steelers had the Broncos on the ropes all day but made several key mistakes that nearly cost them victory.

It was an uneven performance for the defense on Sunday. The stats don’t tell the story of the performance either way. The defensive front played well and after some early success shut down Melvin Gordon III. T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree dominated the Broncos rookie tackles and were all over the backfield.  Watt had 2.5 sacks and disrupted several plays. Dupree had a huge game with a sack and a turnover that changed the momentum of the game. He sent Bronco’s starter Drew Lock to the bench with a legal hit. The defensive line had a very good game and Tyson Alualu recorded his first sack and looks to be fitting in well as the Nose Tackle. The front got caught a few times with misdirection, but any straight up running was all but shut down after the first quarter. Devin Bush and Vince Williams teamed up to stifle the run, but both men had tough days in coverage. Bush was targeted on the Broncos first touchdown to Noah Fant and Vince Williams gave up a touchdown to Gordon.

The secondary kept the Broncos passing game in wraps but made several key mistakes and penalties. The referees were overly involved, and it was at the point that every passed thrown resulted in some type of penalty. The biggest of which was a questionable call on Terrell Edmunds that converted a 3rd and 11. Mike Hilton had a great day but was also called on a questionable roughing the passer. The secondary held the Broncos playmakers but never looked totally in synch on the day. Joe Haden and Steven Nelson held Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton to only seven catches. Haden also had an interception that led to a Steelers field goal at the end of the half.

When the Steelers were about to drop the hammer on offense, they made two near fatal mistakes. Ben Roethlisberger had an ill-advised throw on the opening drive of the second half wasting great field position. Roethlisberger again looked rusty, but his numbers were solid passing for 311 yards and two touchdowns, but he missed some needed throws that would have sealed the Broncos fate. He hit nine different receivers including an 84-yard touchdown pass to rookie Chase Claypool. The entire receiving contributed, and each looks like they are settling into key roles. James Washington banged out some tough yards, JuJu Smith-Schuster had seven catches and looks like the possession receiver, Diontae Johnson is settling in as the playmaker. Claypool takes the top off the defense.

The other costly mistake was Benny Snell fumbling in the fourth quarter after the Steelers recorded a safety. It once again revived the Broncos from the dead and kept them in the game, they converted the fumble into a touchdown. Snell had a rough game and wasn’t the force he was just one week earlier.  James Conner came back after a first week injury and grinded out 106 very tough yards. He found very little running room most of the game, but then finally exploded for the game clinching run; a 59-yarder that finally snuffed out the Broncos.

Mark this down as well, the Special Teams contributed and were a key contributor to the Steelers victory yesterday. Ray-Ray McCloud had a 49-yard return and finished with 64 yards, proving again why he beat out the beloved Ryan Switzer. Derek Watt recorded a safety when Broncos Punter dropped a snap. The coverage units were great all day and Diontae Johnson almost had an 81-yard return when it was called back after a questionable clipping penalty on Cam Sutton. Johnson had a 24-yard kick return. The kicking game once again was a positive, with Chris Boswell hitting his only field goal attempt and Dustin Colquitt averaged 41.8 yards per punt and trapped the Broncos twice inside the 20.

It wouldn’t be a Steelers season without Mike Tomlin losing a costly and obvious challenge. The Steelers had the right game plan but just had several lapses that nearly cost them.

In the end the Steelers did enough to push their record to 2-0.

BEER WE GO STEELERS, BEER WE GO!

My “GAME BEER” goes to: Bud Dupree, while he only had one sack, his forced fumble set the tone and kept the Broncos on their heels all game. Also Considered; Terrell Edmunds who had the game winning sack. Chase Claypool for his first touchdown pass. James Conner for a great bounce back week.

Where I watched the game: At the house with the KGB and Dante. KGB made Chicken Fritters which were perfect and timely, (Steelers made a huge play when they came out.) The beer of choice was Westhampton Beach Pumpkin Ale. The whole pumpkin thing is lost on me but the beer was good! KGB made hers with a cinnamon/sugar ring.

My Stat of the week: 57,085 total career yards passing for Ben Roethlisberger eclipsing Eli Manning and moving into SEVENTH place on the All-Time list. Manning, Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers will forever be linked together, and they sit 6-7-8 on the list. Roethlisberger is still starting for his original team!

My Thoughts on next week: The Steelers struggle with Mobile Quarterbacks so that is a concern. The key is to contain Dashaun Watson and the Steelers will win handily.

This week’s Jersey: Alejandro Villanueva, #78 Color Rush, this is the ONLY comment we are going to make about NFL Social Justice initiatives. We are 100% behind social justice and we hope systematic racism is ended in our lifetime. We back Big Al all the way and whatever he feels is the best way to affect that, we support. This is a blog about football and drinking beer and we are going to keep it that way.

Steelers beat the Giants to open 2020!

September 15th, 2020

It was a familiar formula from days past, play stout defense and wait for the offense to make the plays, it worked then, and it worked last night. The Steelers played tough punishing defense, Ben Roethlisberger made timely plays in his triumphant return and Benny Snell provided the power running game.

Ben Roethlisberger looked a little out of synch in his first few series but then turned it up at the end of the second half, leading an eight play 78-yard drive that ended with a 13-yard touchdown pass to James Washington. Roethlisberger was playing in his first game in 365 days and finished 21 for 32 with 229 yards passing. He hit eight different receivers and threw three touchdowns.  JuJu Smith-Schuster had six catches with 69 yards and two touchdown passes. Diontae Johnson had six catches for 57 yards.

Benny Snell filled in for the injured James Conner, who went out in the second quarter. Snell started slowly as well but also turned it up finishing with 113 yards on the ground. He broke the Giants back with a 30-yard fourth quarter run. Setting up the final touchdown to seal the victory.

While the offense played well, the defense played outstanding and absolutely decimated the Giants running game. The Steelers front seven set the tone, holding the Giants to a field goal after a special teams fumble by Diontae Johnson. Saquon Barkley had no room to run and finished with SIX yards on 15 carries. The Giants could only muster 29 yards on 20 carries overall and were never able to get going. Once again Stephon Tuitt proved why he is so valuable. He was a difference maker and had a sack in his return after missing ten weeks last year. Tyson Alualu and Isiah Buggs acquitted themselves nicely in replacing the departed Javon Hargrave. “Steel Head” Heyward had a big interception that ended a 19 play 87 yard drive that saw the Giants come away with no points.

T.J. Watt created a huge turnover that helped setup the Steelers first touchdown. It took pressure off the offense and kept the Giants on their heels. Bud Dupree hammered Daniel Jones all night, causing the Cam Interception. When he was double teamed, the Steelers sent Mike Hilton off the corner. Dupree disrupted the Giants all game. Vince Williams was a run stuffer in the middle and Devin Bush led the team in tackles. The secondary played well for the most part and except for one lapse kept the Giants in check.

The Special teams like EVERY season is a work in progress. Diontae Johnson had a crucial fumble to start the game, Little Bos Chris Boswell missed a PAT the coverages were okay. Dustin Colquitt who recently joined the team, did a nice job booting four punts for over 180 yards. Ray-Ray McCloud had a nice return for 33 yards.

The Steelers had a very good game plan and were ready for everything the Giants threw at them!

BEER WE GO STEELERS, BEER WE GO!

My “GAME BEER” goes to: Ben Roethlisberger, when you have a Hall Of Fame Quarterback you have a chance to win every week. It was great to see Ben out there. Also Considered: Everyone of the players who contributed to the front seven. They were unstoppable.

Where I watched the game: At the house with the family and my best friend who is a Giants fan. KGB made Primanti Brothers sandwiches which were outstanding. The beer of choice was Iron City to kick it off but we switched over to Miller High Life….not a typo.

My Stat of the week: It has to be; SIX yards by all world running back Saquon Barkley. He had no room to run and was snuffed out all day.

My Thoughts on next week: The Steelers roll into the most unusual opening game in the history of Heinz Field. Covid-19 will leave Heinz Field barren. The Broncos are coming to down after a tough loss. Look for the same formula as this week, with the Steelers pressing Drew Lock into a mistake.

This week’s Jersey: Ben Roethlisberger, #7 Home, It was a tribute to a player the Steelers desperately missed.

The Steelers finish with a solid, if unspectacular draft.

April 27th, 2020

The Steelers finished Saturday’s round with four very solid prospects that can contribute. They filled depth needs and added some help on special teams: Here is our take on the Steelers haul:

124. Anthony McFarland, RB, Maryland: The Steelers addressed a need, adding running back depth, it also looks like James Conner will get one more shot at being the starter. McFarland brings speed and  one cut quickness. He should also contribute on special teams. The best ability is availability and if he stays healthy will be a great addition.

135. Kevin Dotson, G, Louisiana: This was my favorite pick of the draft and the Steelers grabbed some much needed help on the offensive line. With all the interior lineman being over 30, the Steelers needed to make an investment here. He had a Round 2 grade and is arguably the best run blocker in the draft. Give bonus points because he is a lifelong Steelers fan!

198. Antoine Brooks, Jr., Safety: Maryland: This was another classic Steelers pick, Brooks is a “tweener” defender who will play LB in the nickel but can slide to free safety or slot cornerback depending on match up needs. He will be a special teams ace and was a great value pick given his position in the draft.

232. Carlos Davis, DT, Nebraska: Given his natural size and athletic upside this was a good grab for the last pick of the draft. Davis, crushed the combine and is a classic defensive line space eater. With Javon Hargrave leaving and Mt. McCullers being unsettled, this could be a steal and he can push for an immediate spot on the team.

The Steelers also grabbed 10-undrafted Free Agents, here is a blurb on all of them-

  • Spencer Nigh, FB, Auburn – Long shot to make the team, will be a camp body.
  • Christian Montano, G, Tulane – Will add depth and youth.
  • Trajan Bandy, CB, Miami – lacks size but could contribute on special teams.
  • James Pierre, CB, Florida Atlantic – Good size and speed.
  • James Lockhart, LB Baylor – a 3-4 Outside Linebacker, could be a sleeper
  • Leo Lewis,  LB, Mississippi State – Good pedigree.
  • John Houston, LB, Southern California – Versatile prospect and the best of the three UDFA
  • Josiah Coatney, DT, Mississippi – Could move around the D-line as a 3-4 end
  • Calvin Taylor, DT, Kentucky – Brings tremendous size to a position that needs help.
  • Corliss Waitman, P, South Alabama/Mississippi State- Will compete for a roster spot

Steelers get on the Board!

April 25th, 2020

Having no first round pick since 1967, the Steelers picked yesterday for the first time in the 2020 draft.

The Steelers passed on specific need and grabbed two high ceiling skilled propsects:

Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame – A big physical receiver who ran a 4.42 40 at the combine. Has good hands and can be a crushing blocker. It was a strange pick because of the time, but given his size and versatility, he will contribute early.

Alex Highsmith, Edge, Charlotte – This was a classic Steelers pick. He will replace Anthony Chickillo in the Steelers defense as a situational pass rusher and he fits that 3-4 outside linebacker mode. He is strong on technique and athleticism and has a complete skill set to play in the NFL.

It was a good haul, if unspectacular. The downside is they didn’t address any specific needs, like CB, Offensive line depth and a Running back.

The Running Back market looks thin on Day 3 as you would expect, there are still some nice looking tackles and o-linemen available, Cornerback can still be a place to make a move.

BEER WE GO STEELERS, BEER WE GO!

Draft Day II, This time we pick!

April 24th, 2020

If you were hoping to see what happened to Sonny Weaver Jr….you are reading the wrong blog! So it was a weird day on many levels, but the Steelers having no 1st round picks, was by far the strangest part of the draft for me.

The Steelers get on the board today and don’t be surprised if they move around a little bit, to stock pile some picks. When looking back over the last years, here is a look at some of the highlights from Round 3 since 2010.

Year Player Pos Rating Comment
2019 Diontae Johnson WR Inc Too Early to tell athough was the best receiver last year
2019 Justin Layne CB Inc Too Early to tell, he has the tools, needs a chance
2018 Mason Rudolph QB C+ Was playing well until the concussion, absolutely can play in this league
2018 Chuks Okorafor T Inc Has shown a great upside
2017 Cameron Sutton CB Inc Has had limited exposure
2017 James Conner RB B- Would have been an A but has trouble staying on the field
2016 Javon Hargrave DT B+ Did a great job during his tenure, he will be missed
2015 Sammie Coates WR C Took the lid off the defense, but a broken hand derailed his tenure and is now XFL alumni
2014 Dri Archer RB F Never made an impact despite world class talent
2013 Markus Wheaton WR C+ Was a good contributor while in the Burgh
2012 Sean Spence RB Inc What might have been,
2011 Curtis Brown CB F Never materialized
2010 Emmanuel Sanders WR A Great contributor, who is still in the league

It is sort of a mixed bag of picks. The last two years will determine, how successful this was.

Tomorrow we will highlight the rest! Also will post the pick and the scouting report of any of the Steelers picks!

Draft Day!

April 23rd, 2020

Beer We Go Nation, It is easy to be caught up in the malaise right now, with COVID-19 and no 1st-Round Pick, but Draft Day is a very special day for the Steelers. The Steelers need a big draft this time around and have to address some needs. Where the Steelers have made their mark, isn’t in the 1st Round, it is the diamonds in 2-5 where they make their mark!

This morning Bleacher Report had an article about the Steelers biggest draft bust; Huey Richardson, who was the last 1st Rounder of the Chuck Noll Era. It was a bust and Richardson was out within a year(trade for a pick that turned into Jeff Zgonina). What the article didn’t write was who else went in that draft. The Steelers grabbed Jeff Graham and Ernie Mills both of whom anchored the receiving core for over five years, Leroy Thompson and Adrian Cooper, both were serviceable and solid backups. While that isn’t a great draft class, the Steelers made something out of it.

Here is a look at the last ten years 1st Round Pick, it is underrated, so not having a first rounder is going to be tough, but not fatal as you will see what Round 2 held.

Year Player Pos Rating Comment
2019 Devin Bush ILB Inc Too Early to tell although he looks like the real deal
2018 Terrell Edmunds S Inc Has shown flashes of brilliance but needs a bigger body of work
2017 T.J. Watt LB A+ The new face of the franchise!
2016 Artie Burns CB D Only reason this isn’t an F is his early contributions were promising
2015 Bud Dupree LB B+ This would have been a C last year, but came into his own finally
2014 Ryan Shazier LB A No matter how this ends, he was a word class talent and still is missed
2013 Jarvis Jones LB F A total bust and absolute disappointment
2012 David DeCastro G A+ Already making his case for Canton
2011 Cameron Heyward DE A The Anchor of the defense
2010 Maurkice Pouncey C A In the argument as the best Center in Football

Here is the good news, the Steelers have made some big moves in Rounds 2:

Year Player Pos Rating Comment
2019 NO PICK
2018 James Washington WR Inc His best football is ahead of him, this is the make or break year
2017 JuJu Smith-Schuster WR A Last year aside he has been a great addition and a key player
2016 Sean Davis S C His early body of work, was solid, but injuries derailed a promising career.
2015 Senquez Golson CB F Injuries derailed him and he never contributed
2014 Stephon Tuitt DE A Part of the Dynamic Duo, when healthy he is a force
2013 Le’Veon Bell RB A No matter how this ended, he was a top five RB in the league while in the Burgh
2012 Mike Adams G F Total disappointment and a total bust
2011 Marcus Gilbert T B+ Started at RT for almost his whole tenure, solid performer!
2010 Jason Worilds LB B- Was a contributor during his starting tenure and registered 25.5 Sacks in five years

ROUND 2 Will hit on the Steelers big wins in the later rounds tomorrow!

Steelers end season with loss in Baltimore!

December 30th, 2019

A disappointing season comes to an end as the Steelers fell apart in Baltimore for their third straight loss. The Steelers offense was non-existent for the entire game and the defense was on the field too long and couldn’t find and answer for the Ravens run offense.

The “Duck” Hodges era is all but over after his third straight loss. He has completely looked overmatched in the last three weeks. Hodges finished Sunday’s matchup with an anemic 9-25 for 95 yards. The weather played a factor in the output, but Hodges didn’t have it. Like the previous two losses he lacked pocket awareness and couldn’t get his passes under control.

The offensive line and the receiving team didn’t help Hodges. The protection was lousy and has been for the last month. They also haven’t been able to push up front for the running game. James Washington looked like a breakout star, but he played inconsistent the last four weeks and had two key drops yesterday. JuJu Smith-Schuster completed a disappointing season and was a non-factor yesterday. Diontae Johnson led the team in yards and catches but also was inconsistent.

The running game had a little movement. Benny Snell did a solid job with 91 yards on the ground and scored the Steelers only touchdown. Kerrith Whyte, who was a nice find and Jaylen Samuels, who had some solid moments were non-existent in the running game.

The Ravens clearly had only one game plan in mind and the defense struggled to stop it. The front seven was gashed for over 200 yards on the ground and ran out of gas yesterday late in the game. Cam Heyward capped off the season with a very big game and he was a bright spot. Bud Dupree played well in what will most likely be his last game as a Steeler. Javon Hargrave and Mt. McCullers hung tough in the middle, but they didn’t have the answers to stop Baltimore.

The special teams were also lousy. What has happened to Jordan Berry? He absolutely fell apart the second half of the year. He was awful yesterday and dropped a punt that all but sealed the Steelers fate. The coverages were mediocre as well. Kerrith Whyte and Diontae Johnson both did well in the return game throughout the season. Chris Boswell looks like he is back on track.

The Steelers coaching was atrocious yesterday as well. The offensive game plan was terrible and poorly executed, the defensive game plan was completely disjointed. There was no reason the Ravens should have been able to run the ball at-will, the Steelers have plenty of run-stoppers. How they were not prepared for yesterdays game is incomprehensible.

BEER WE GO STEELERS, BEER WE GO!

My “GAME BEER” goes to: Benny Snell Jr. who put in some hard work racking up 91 tough yards. Also Considered: Bud Dupree who finished with four tackles and a sack and Cam Heyward who chipped in with a sack and four tackles too.

Where I watched the game: At the house with the Tailgate Kids, KGB and some friends. KGB made Prime Rib Sliders on garlic rolls, with potatoes which were phenomenal, and the beer of choice was Sam Adams Winter Ale.

My Stat of the week: The Ravens pounded out 223 yards on the ground and pushed the Steelers around on the field. This is clearly something that needs to be addressed during the offseason.

My Thoughts on next week: It is going to be a VERY long offseason!

This week’s Jersey: Jack Lambert, #58, Home jersey, figured I would try and channel some defensive greatness. It didn’t happen!
