  • Flashback: Steelers Lose 20-10 To Saints on Halloween 2010

    a href=”http://www.steelersgab.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Steeelers.jpg”>

    The Steelers and Saints haven’t met since the 2010 season, and the last time it was a primetime affair in the SuperDome on Halloween, a game in which the Steelers fell to the Saints 20-10.

    Below is our recap of that matchup, a game which saw the Steelers, a year in which they made it to the Super Bowl, fall to 5-2 on the season. The two teams will meet Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

    On a night where the Steelers could have clearly cemented themselves as the best team in the AFC and therefore the league, the club looked ordinary in losing to a not nearly as good as 2009 Saints team 20-10 to fall to 5-2 on the year.

    The loss puts the team in a tie with Baltimore in the AFC North, and based on the fact the Ravens beat the Steelers, it really means the Steelers find themselves in 2nd place in the division.

    The team had their shots, as they allowed the Saints to build a 13-3 lead, but then finally found some offense in the 4th quarter that ended with a Rashard Mendenhall 38-yard TD run with over 10 minutes left to make it 13-10.

    On the next Saints drive, they got to the Steelers 20, but on a 3rd-and-4 Bryant McFadden flew in and hit Drew Brees, who fumbled and LaMarr Woodley recovered it.

    The Steelers seemed to have all the momentum, as they gained 14 yards in two plays to the 39, and then Ben Roethlisberger hit Heath Miller, who rumbled for 25 yards, but then coughed up the ball right into the hands of Darren Sharper, who took it to the Saints 45.

    From there, the Steelers D couldn’t stop Brees and the Saints offense, as they quickly marched the distance, helped by a weak personal foul call on James Harrison. Instead of trying to run the clock out, the Saints put the dagger in, as Brees hit Lance Moore with an 8-yard score to make it 20-10.

    Roethlisberger threw a pick on the next series to end any shot the Steelers may have had. The QB was 17-for-28 for 195 yards with a pick. His QB rating was 66.8.

    Brees threw for 305 yards on going 34-for-44 with two TD’s and a pick.

    The Steelers appeared to go up 7-0 after Ben hit Antwaan Randel El with a 12-yard score early in the second quarter. He was ruled down at the one on the replay, and from there they couldn’t get a yard and settled for a 19-yard Jeff Reed field goal.

    Then after the Saints tied it, Ryan Clark picked off Brees near the end of the half, but a weak push off call on Hines Ward cost the Steelers 10 yards, and they had to settle for a 51-yard field goal attempt by Reed, which was missed.

    The Saints got a field goal and TD to go up 10 before the frantic comeback fell short. The Steelers continue their run on prime time, as they play the Bengals on Monday night next week.

     
  • The Elite Of The Elite Will Face Off

    This Sunday night two elite quartersbacks New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will face off against each other in a crucial game that will affect both teams playoff chances.This game wil be decided by the good and bad of these two potential hall of famers.

    Brees has made a living in the NFL by making quick mental decisions, and making quick efficient passes. Despite only being 6’0″ Brees has no trouble seeing, and reading the defenses. This Sunday vs the Steelers Brees must release the ball quickly as the Steelers pass rush has improved over the past month. There are many things Brees does well that frustrates defenses, and one of those things is spreading the football around to multiple recievers. The Steelers defense back seven will have the difficult task of covering 4-5 reliable pass catchers on at least 25-30 plays. With Brees throwing quick passes the defense may be able jump some of those passes for interceptions. Brees is most effective when playing from the pocket, and pressure from the Steelers defense could get Brees out of rhythm and disrupt the gameplan.

    Roethlisberger has struggled in the past two weeks. Roethlisberger this season has shown himself to be impressive against good quarterbacks this season such as Joe Flacco, and Andrew Luck throwing 12 touchdowns against the two. Facing another elite quarterback in Brees history shows Roethlisberger will have another great game. Roethlisberger over the past month has developed a rapport with receivers Martavis Bryant, and Markus Wheaton. The Saints are known for getting after the quarterback and Roethlisberger is known for holding on to the football for long periods of time. If Roethlisberger can release the ball in 3.5 seconds or less it will keep the pass rush off.

    Brees and Roethlisberger will both be looking to put up big numbers this Sunday. Both of these quarterbacks have played in big games in the past and this Sunday game is no different. With both of these quarterbacks past 30, and both being 100 million dollar quarterbacks its clear the main goal for these two is to win a another super bowl. Sunday night both quarterbacks will take another big step toward that goal.

     
  • The Chance To Make A Difference

    Dri Archer,Josh Harris,and Will Johnson careers have taken a turn for the better with the sudden release of running back LeGarrette Blount. With Blount gone it is likely Archer,Harris,and Johnsson will receive more touches. With the Pittsburgh Steelers gearing up for a playoff run the running game is becoming more and more important regardless of who is carrying the football.

    Harris a undrafted running back out of the University of Wake Forest played for years for the demon deacons. At 5’11” 210 ponds Harris ran a 4.46 in the 40 yard dash while at Wake Forest. Harris displays more speed than Blount and can also run between the tackles. As of now Archer is the number 2 running back on the depth chart but that could change. Harris based off his skill set projects to be a good change of pace back to spell Le’Veon Bell,and/or Archer. If Harris can also show he can convert on short 3rd down runs it will bring more carries to him and Bell will be fresh late in games. It is clear that Archer is by far the fastest running back on the team. So far n Archer has struggled on special teams,and catching the football. As a runner however Archer is averaging 5.1 yards a carry on 8 carries. With Blount gone the Steelers will put more effort into getting Archer more involved into the offense as a runner. It is clear that if Archer gets into the open field he can be very dangerous. Going forward Archer must learn the concept of running between the tackles and bouncing outside for more yards.

    Fullback Will Johnson rarely touches the football for the Steelers but his role could very well increase. Being that Archer,and Harris both lack much experience at the NFL level it is logical to have a fullback in front of them to block for them as they become more adjusted to the NFL. Johnson has shown the ability on to get the second level and 20-30 yards down field when blocking. With Johnson’s quickness, Johnson will be a great lead blocker on sweep plays for Archer,and Harris allowing them to have one less defender to avoid. In goal line situations now that Blount is gone Johnson could very well be in line for more touches in that area. The ve struggled at times in the red zone and Johnson would bring a element of surprise to opposing defenses. Between Archer,Harris,and Johnson it may very well take a collective effort to replace Blount ,But at this point of the season the one who produces the most will play more. This is a great chance for all three players and it should bring out the best in all three of them. And with a team trying to win a 7th superbowl ring you can believe they will give it their all.

  • Steelers Gab POW: Le’Veon Bell Carries The Pittsburgh Steelers Home

    Pittsburgh Steelers v Tennessee Titans

     

    In a game that seemed destined to get out of control for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night, the team went back to its roots with power running. Le’Veon Bell rushed for 204 yards on 33 carries and a touchdown – also catching 2 passes for 18 yards. With Bell’s performance he is the Steelers Gab Player of the Week.

    Bell went into Monday night’s game with 56 yards on 21 carries the previous two games because the offense was so pass-happy. Bell got off to a hot start in the first half averaging over 5.5 yards a carry. But, after the team could not pass the ball due to poor pass blocking and wide receivers not gaining enough separation, the Steelers turned to their young workhorse in Bell to make the difference. Once Bell began to run into the teeth of the defense and wear down the Tennessee Titans, the blitzing that had been so effective earlier suddenly became ineffective.

    Bell was finally able to score early in the fourth quarter from five yards out.  It was Bell’s first rushing touchdown since week one vs the Cleveland Browns. Bell progressed as the game went on and it aided the passing game, allowing Ben Roethlisberger time to connect with Antonio Brown on a 12-yard touchdown pass that gave the Steelers  the lead for good.

    Bell became the first running back this season to rush for over 200 yards in a game. Considering this is now a passing league, it’s great to see a team win by relying on the run. Bell  has developed into a top tier running back this season. Bell will likely go over  1,000 yards rushing  this season and is only 22 years of age.

    Bell is still playing under his rookie contract but soon, rather than later, Bell will be making big money as he is out-performing his rookie contract. Going forward, Bell will continue to be a triple-threat as a runner, receiver and pass blocker. Opposing teams will have to try to figure out a way to contain him.

    Bell defines the term “workhorse” (running) back. Monday night, Bell showed he can play under the bright lights and heavy pressure.

     
  • Steelers unload LeGarrette Blount after lack of professionalism

    LeGarrette_Blount

    Running back LeGarrette Blount wrote his own bus ticket right out of Pittsburgh with his unprofessional handling of lack of playing opportunities against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night added to what has been an ongoing internal issue while he has been with the Steelers this season.  Less than 24 hours after Blount walked off of LP Field before the game ended on Monday night in Nashville, Blount was given a pink slip from the franchise.

    According to insiders, Steelers linebackers coach Joey Porter initially witnessed Blount leaving for the team bus and called the player back into the locker room on more than one occasion – Blount returned just long enough for post-game interviews to begin and was once again out the door.  His Steelers teammates and coaches were not impressed with Blount’s handling of a frustrating personal situation.

    On Tuesday, head coach Mike Tomlin issued the following statement: “We believe the decision to release LeGarrette (Blount) is in the best interest of the organization and wish him the best of luck.”

    Some could take that as ‘don’t let the door hit you on the way out’, but Mike Mitchell defended Blount as a person.  “I actually know him, and a lot of people don’t know him,” said Mitchell.  “He is not a selfish guy at all.  He is a competitive guy who wants to be on the field, wants to win games, wants to help us win games.  It’s a bad perception I think he gets a lot of times, but he has to be smarter in that situation.”

    Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey told the media, “If you don’t want to be here, don’t be here.  (Blount) had a decision to make as a man, and he made it.  You know the consequence.”

    Blount will now have an opportunity to show the level of intelligence and maturity gained after being shown the door by the fourth team in five seasons.  Blount signed a two-year, $3.85 million contract with the Steelers in March but only his $950,000 signing bonus was guaranteed.  The Steelers will only count against the Steelers’ salary cap in the amount of $475,000 in 2015 – money well worth giving up if the Steelers felt he was poisoning the locker room.

    Rookies Dri Archer moves up on the roster behind Le’Veon Bell and Josh Harris was promoted from the practice squad following Blount’s release on Tuesday.  Rumors that recently-released Cleveland Browns rusher Ben Tate would join the Steelers have proven false thus far.

    With depth at the running back position a question mark this late in the season, many are hitting the panic button.  Perhaps a bit too quickly.  Before the 2014 season even got off to a start officially, talk of Bell and Blount being the one-two punch the Steelers needed to get a ground game going were the rage.  Dri Archer was meant to compliment the duo in certain situations, mainly as a scat-back.  The picture became muddied by off-field actions as Blount allegedly took second-year back Bell under his wing and the two got involved in poor decision making and received legal charges for marijuana – breaking a league substance abuse policy as well.

    Bell began playing as if he wanted to redeem his image in Pittsburgh and although Blount was averaging 4.6 yards per carry for his career it began to become more apparent that instead of boosting his “best friend” and teammate, Blount was going to take Bell down a notch too.  Ed Bouchette and other Steelers insiders verified that there was some hard feelings within the locker room over what many felt was an increased level of self-interest over team-first interest from Blount.

    To have a bye week ahead and part ways with Blount so quickly speaks volumes about the level of concern the coaching staff and team as a whole was experiencing in regards to his attitude and mentality.  Bell is ranked second in the league with 951 rushing yards and had earned the starting position on offense.  Blount could have easily been dynamic beside his friend and teammate – instead, he was unsatisfied, and it cost him.

    The Steelers have the option of reaching out to another free agent to bring in to fill the spot.  There are plenty of guys out there who would jump at the chance to be able to get the opportunity.  If Blount didn’t understand the level of commitment and integrity the Steelers expect from their players, even when given second chances to make things right, he certainly got a clear message when the team released him.

     
  • Five Takeaways Following the Steelers Victory Over The Titans

    If your heart has finally slowed down after the crazy night Monday against the Titans, it’s time to take a step back and figure out what it all means after the Steelers huge 27-24 win over Tennessee to enter the bye week at 7-4.

    The team has five games left, a chance (as crazy as it sounds) to go 12-4, which considering it would mean two wins over the Bengals if they run the table, a division title and possibly as high as the #2 seed in the AFC (with the way the Broncos are getting beat up with injuries).

    But as usual in life, that’s so much easier said than done, and a lot has to happen before that, so let’s cover five Takeaways from the win over the Titans, as well as how things look going into and maybe coming out of the bye week for the black and gold.

    1. Credit the Defensive Adjustments – It’s been easy for most of the season to heap insults on the defense for allowing big plays, and while they did give up 24 points to the Titans, let’s also give them credit for the way they stopped the Titans in the fourth quarter. After the Titans touchdown from Zach Mettenberger to Chase Coffman that made it 24-13, the defense was lights out the rest of the way. Tennessee ran 7 offensive plays in the fourth quarter, gaining a total of 20 yards. Whatever Dick LeBeau and the defense called, it worked.

    2. It Felt Like Truly “Steeler Football” – When the Steelers took the ball over with 6:58 to play nursing a three-point lead, of course the optimist in me thought “I would love to see a 7 minute drive here,” but the realist felt 2-3 minutes off the clock would be more likely. Little did I see coming what took place, and that’s a flashback to old “Steeler Football,” where five guys and a bruising back took the game over, running out the clock. This team needed a moment like that, and let’s hope it carries over after the bye week.

    3. Ben Showed Some Serious Toughness - It wasn’t exactly an easy night for the Steelers QB, as the Titans blitzed the heck out of him, and while they sacked him five times, they got to him and got their licks in often. Roethlisbergers’s numbers were 21-for-32 for 207 yards, but he was an effective 6-for-9 for 67 in the Steelers two touchdown drives and final drive of the game to seal the win. He also may have saved the game with a four-yard run on third down early in the TD drive to draw within 24-20. He didn’t have the gaudy numbers like the Colts and Ravens games, but played his heart out.

    2. This Team Controls Its Own Destiny – The Steelers get a much needed and deserved bye week, but once they come out of it, with five games left this team controls where it will go and how long it will play for in the 2014 season. The final five are: vs Saints, at Bengals, at Falcons, vs Chiefs, vs Bengals. If they have to lose one game, fans should hope it’s either the Falcons or Saints games. Bottom line is if they beat the Bengals twice, and beat the Chiefs at home, they should win the division at 10-6. If they don’t make the postseason or win the division, they only have themselves to blame.

    1. Bye, Bye Blount – LeGarrette Blount’s career with the Steelers should be over, 11 games into his two-year deal. He walked off the field with time remaining on Monday night, and reports say the team hasn’t been happy with him for his attitude over the last month. With that, it’s better for Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert to cut ties with him than waste any more time and also allow him to be a cancer to this team. Here’s hoping they can find a back on the free agent market to backup Le’Veon Bell, and dump Blount, who has had just a few minor shining moments with the team. He’s been on four teams in five seasons, and the Steelers are finding out why.
