Season Surprises


I thought i would share some surprising (to me anyway) things about the season so far. I am using PFF ratings as my point of reference. I am not sure how accurate they are but I have found them interesting nonetheless. William Gay has been our best CB so far and the only one with a positive rating. Gay has good numbers in coverage and run stopping. Clark,Timmons and Williams are near the bottom of the league at their positions. Only Jones,Troy,McLendon & Gay have positive run stopping ratings,every other starter is negative. Only Mike Adams has a negative overall rating on the offensive line. No offensive lineman has a positive rating in run and pass blocking,they are either positive against the run or positive against the pass. Woodley and McLendon are our best pass rushers all other starting lineman and linebackers have a negative pass rush rating. The good news is Antonio Brown is the highest rated receiver in the NFL! Cotchery and Sanders both have positive ratings also. Big Ben has a zero rating,which means his positive plays equal his negative plays. I found that interesting since he has 5 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Keep your head up Steeler Nation,a good draft next year and we will be in the hunt in 2015.
