A look at the Steelers’ offense and how Todd Haley and Big Ben are getting along…

Through six weeks of the season, the Steelers are banged up, beaten up and 2-3. All, of course, is not well. That road loss to the Titans only underscored the issues. The defense is hurting, the offense hasn’t found its rhythm, they are currently looking up at the Bengals and Ravens in the AFC North. Statistically, just like actually, it has been a struggle for the offense. Even with a talented quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger and WRs like Antonio Brown and Mike Wallace, they are ranked just 17th in scoring with 23.2 points and 16th in total offense with 360 yards. In other words, mediocre. Now, there are some issues to point to as far as why the unit is […]

Rap Sheet Rankings: The Week 7 Edition

Every week, I stare at the schedule and try to make sense of what we’re about to see. I try to judge what’s the game I’m looking forward to most, then go from there. Tough one this week, though. On the field, I literally can’t wait for Seahawks-49ers. Two hard-nosed, tough-as-nails defenses against hard-core running attacks. I’ll be happy if Seattle RB Marshawn Lunchpail and San Fran LB Patrick Willis just run into each other 50 times. However… it just doesn’t have hold the gravity of the other two top games. Patriots-Jets is always intense, both off the field and on. There is some serious AFC East supremacy at stake, still. And how can you go wrong with Texans-Ravens (the […]

An unexpected use of the short-term Injured Reserve rule has emerged…

Earlier this year, the NFL passed a new rule that allowed teams to place a player on Injured Reserve but not necessarily lose him for the season. Officially, they “designate him for return,” though it’s come to be called “Short-term IR.” It’s a good rule. I like it. If a player gets hurt in Week 1 and can come back by Week 10, why would a team be forced to lose him for the season just to have his roster spot? For the Patriots in the Super Bowl last year, for instance, they could’ve used Dan Koppen, but he’d already been declared out. Yet, he was healthy. So, anyway, it’s worked out. Coaches and teams often find unexpected loopholes or uses […]

Understanding the situation around Eagles coach Andy Reid and his decision today

Eagles coach Andy Reid made a surprise(ish) move today, firing embattled defensive coordinator Juan Castillo. Sure, the offense has its issues, with QB Michael Vick and his fumbles and inconsistency. But Reid made the call that a defense that’s 12th in yards and 13th in points allowed was the issue. What does this mean for the Eagles? It’s kinda like I wrote last month about the Eagles situation. Reid gets his standing. I spoke with a high-ranking Philly source recently who made two distinct points that provide clarity. 1. Reid is being truthful when he said it was his decision to fire Castillo, one he made last night. He is the head coach, it’s his show, and he is in charge. […]
