  • Steelers' Anemic Pass Rush On Pace For Fewest Sacks Since 1988

    http://triblive.com/sports/steelers/...#axzz2AahjFhvm

    Excerpt: "There’s no need to think up any catchy sack-related nickname for these Steelers. Blitzburgh, it’s not.

    They suit up an average of 23 players on defense every week, but they have only 12 sacks in seven games. J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans has 9 1⁄2 sacks by himself.

    Jason Worilds (who played nine snaps Sunday against Washington) and Larry Foote lead with three sacks each.

    At their present pace, the Steelers will finish with 27 sacks, the fewest since they had 19 in 1988. The team low for a 16-game season is 18 in 1980.

    “We had only one sack (against the Redskins), but I think we did a great job of putting the pressure on,” outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley said.

    The Giants have 21 sacks, led by Jason Pierre-Paul’s 51⁄2." Read more...

    I guess this means they get like 6 on us this week... Isn't that how these things normally work with us?
    Life is like a Giants game, you never know what you are going to get.

      Although, them not having Troy in the secondary makes them blitz a lot less, which means less sacks. He is their safety net back there and I guess they don't trust the backup as much.

          Isn't Eli the least sacked quarterback in the league?

            My thoughts exactly. It will happen as soon as one of the commentators brings up this stat during the game. Sack fumble.

                watch em hammer Eli now...

                I hate when ppl bring up stats like this. Same thing when the commentator brings up a FG made streak and after he says it, the kicker misses...

                      at this point Woodley doesnt compare to their premiere linebacker Timmons, who might be playing the best football in the AFC at the ILB position. But, If you are talking about passrush then it is Harrison that is the guy.

                      That defense rise and falls with Timmons(assuming Troy is out.) In the 4 steelers wins he has 26 tackles, a forced fumble and a Int. In the 3 loses he has 12 tackles. If we block him, the holes will be there.

                        Hope we get outta a big lead and maintain it.
                        Football has been very, very good to us.
                        After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                        But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                        # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                        1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                        2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                        3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                        4-New York Giants!!!
                        5-NE
                        Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                          I for one am not impress with the Steelers. As long as Gilbride and Fewell dial up the offense and defense we displayed against the Niners we will be fine.
                          Gmen put the Steelers and their 'Longest yard uniforms' on ice.

                            This is an important game to win. It's the first game of the 2nd half of the season and with our past record in last 8/9 yrs of 4-4 and 3-5s ( we were 4-4 the 2007 SB Season and 3-5 last yr in our SB run). We don't need any negative vibes to start out the batch of 8 with a loss. We need to get that first win under our belts and move forward

                              I look for us to finish no worse than 5-3 in the 2nd half if not better.
