Steelers' D Dominating Opposing QBs

They are a million great things to say about the performance of the Steelers' defense for the first three weeks, but I think this statistical analysis may be even more illustrative. Here is how the three QBs the Steelers have played, played against the Black and Gold and their two other opponents.

Matt Ryan                             Points         comp/att         yds          ypa           td/int             Rating

Week 1 v. Pittsburgh                 9                27/44            252          5.73           0/1                  67.6

Week 2 v. Arizona                     41                21/32            225          7.03           3/0                 117.3

Week 3 v. New Orleans            27                 19/30            228         7.60            2/0                108.8

Vince Young (Pulled)

Week 1 v. Oakland                   38                  13/17             154            9.06         2/0                142.8

Week 2 v. Pittsburgh              11                    7/10               66             6.60         0/2                48.3

Week 3 v. NY Giants                29                   10/16             118           7.38          1/0                105.7

Josh Freeman (Pulled-end)

Week 1 v. Cleveland                 17                   17/28             182           6.50          2/1                88.7

Week 2 v. Carolina                    20                   12/24             178           7.42          2/0               102.4

Week 3 v. Pittsburgh               13                   20/31             184           5.94          0/1               67.1

 

So in nine games, these three quarterbacks are 6-0 vs. the rest of the league, 0-3 against the Steelers. They have thrown 12 tds, 1 int against the rest of the league, 0 tds and 4 ints against Pittsburgh (not incl. Kerry Collins ints.). In those other six games the lowest quarterback rating is 88.7. Against the Steelers' D the highest rating is 67.6. These qbs are putting up an average of 28.6 pts/g against other teams and 11 against the Steelers (with the only two tds allowed coming in the last two minutes of each game.)

Totally dominant against qbs carving up other teams in the league.
