Steelers Vs Bengals Game Rewind

Game notes from Sunday’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

First Half

– Kick coverage from left to right: Justin Gilbert-Robert Golden-Sammie Coates-Roosevelt Nix-Vince Williams-Chris Boswell-Tyler Matakevich-Fitzgerald Toussaint-Anthony Chickillo-Jordan Dangerfield-Artie Burns

– Steelers switching stuff up, putting William Gay in the box and rolling Sean Davis over slot. Positional flexibility all around.

Javon Hargrave turned and blown out, Mike Mitchell can’t get off the block. B gap open.

– Nice shed and tackle by Dan McCullers. He had a good game.

– Kick returners. Front five: Arthur Moats-Tyler Matakevich-Vince Williams-Anthony Chickillo-L.J. Fort. Sean Davis behind. On the wedge was David Johnson/Roosevelt Nix/L.T. Walton. Sammie Coates and Fitzgerald Toussaint the return man.

– Coates did a great job of making the first man miss on his 44 yard kick return. Do that and you’re set up for a long return. Not to mention that it was a difference of a good 30 yards.

– Variety on Hank versus Cover 4. Flats open.

– Hargrave still having trouble staying square.

– Artie Burns with eyes in the backfield. Allows separation, gets called for pass interference.

– Punt coverage team. Cobi Hamilton and Sammie Coates as the gunners. On the line: Vince Williams-L.J. Fort-Greg Warren-Tyler Matakevich-Anthony Chickillo. Roosevelt Nix/Jordan Dangerfield the wings, Robert Golden the upback.

– Long kick return. Kick returner went opposite the way the kick was supposed to be covered, didn’t have much resistance.

– Big open field tackle by Sean Davis. Saved four points.

Ben Roethlisberger missing a wide open Ladarius Green.

Second Half

– Xavier Grimble took the place of Stephon Tuitt at left wing on field goals. Two new guys on the left side. Him and Daniel McCullers. Makes me nervous for Sunday.

Domata Peko beats David DeCastro pretty bad here in pass pro. And Peko is a far cry from Geno Atkins.

– Sail concept with the X receiver, Antonio Brown, crossing to the playside. Hits Eli Rogers on the corner route with Sammie Coates clearing things out.

– Strong double-team by DeCastro and Marcus Gilbert.

– Y Mesh with Ladarius Green (Y always sets the mesh). Sets the pick and gets open.
