Jon Bostic Must Improve Coverage Skills or Be Helped

The Pittsburgh Steelers pass defense was ripped apart by the Kansas City Chiefs in week two. A huge part of that was due to the fact that Travis Kelce was quite literally always open. Pittsburgh had no answer for him. Linebacker Jonathan Bostic was the man charged with the task of covering Kelce most of the game, and this matchup made it very clear: Pittsburgh’s linebackers can’t cover tight ends. Jon Bostic and company must either improve their coverage skills quickly, or start being helped more by the safeties. Poor Week Two Performance Patrick Mahomes looked like an all-time great quarterback against...

The UFC 230 Main Event Dilemma

Opponents Dustin Poirier and Nate Diaz face off during the UFC press conference inside the Orpheum Theater on August 3, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. UFC 230 is shaping up to be a stacked, highly-anticipated card. It has Israel Adesanya looking to continue his climb to the top, a rematch between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman, and of course the long-awaited return of Nate Diaz. However, there is something major lacking from this event. Less than two months out, there still has not been a main event announced. Assuming the UFC 230 main event will be announced soon, there are a few routes that...

James Washington Outlook Following Week One

Throughout the preseason, there was a promising trend arising for the Pittsburgh Steelers offense. Rookie wide receiver James Washington was making big plays consistently, looking like the offensive threat he was drafted to be. His chemistry with rookie quarterback Mason Rudolph had the future of the Steelers offensive looking great. But, more importantly, Washington was looking like he was ready to be a contributor right away. In week one, he was barely on the field. It wasn’t the start to Washington’s career that fans were expecting, but that time will come sooner than later. Why He Didn’t Play After barely seeing...

Ben Roethlisberger and the Negatives From Pittsburgh Steelers Week One Action

Though it’s never a good thing to tie with the Cleveland Browns, the Pittsburgh Steelers were lucky to do just that in week one. Despite taking horrible care of the ball, and getting penalized left and right, the Steelers still didn’t lose a game. Sure, the result is fine given how the team played. But, the fact that the team played so terribly is a huge concern moving forward. Ben Roethlisberger is just one of the several Steelers players that will need to see a strong turn around heading into week two, when a Kansas City Chiefs team that is...

James Conner and the Rest of the Keys to a Pittsburgh Steelers Week One Victory

Le’Veon Bell hasn’t been anywhere in sight, just a few days out from the Pittsburgh Steelers season opener. The team is insistent that they are ready to go with the guys that they have, and are focused solely on the Cleveland Browns. This means that second-year man and fan favorite James Conner will be handling the running back duties for now and probably for the foreseeable future. Cleveland is a young, hungry, and improved team. They gave the Steelers trouble in the season opener last year. Pittsburgh will need to show up and play their game in order to start...

Pittsburgh Steelers Defense Must Rise Through Adversity

Hot off of a successful 2017 regular season and a failed postseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to improve in every aspect this year and find success in the postseason, too. Any analyst or talking head will say “the Steelers are gonna be good, their offense will be great, but who knows about that defense.” Every person who says that is absolutely right. It was the defense that failed the team is last year’s miserable playoff loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now, it’s the Steelers defense that needs to step up through some criticism and adversity and shine. Replacing...

Francis Ngannou Needs A Huge Bounce Back Against Curtis Blaydes

Francis Ngannou of Cameroon walks to the Octagon to face Derrick Lewis in their heavyweight fight during the UFC 226 event inside T-Mobile Arena on July 7, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
