RECAP:

After a dominating 40-13 win over the visiting Bengals the Dolphins packed their bags and headed up north to Heinz Field to take on the number one seeded Pittsburgh Steelers. The Dolphins' backfield would be down a horse as they lost Jay Ajayi to injury in their victory over the Bengals. The Steelers got off to a fast start taking the opening kick off 91 yards inside the Dolphins' ten yard line. Ben Roethlisberger would throw his first of five TDs as he hit Jesse James two plays later. The Steelers dominated from the word go creating constant pressure and forcing two Dolphin QBs from the game with injuries. They intercepted three passes each one being from a different QB. The Steelers didn't leave the game unscathed as Le'Veon Bell left the game early with an ankle injury, but it is not expected to hold him out of the AFC Championship Game. The Steelers will host the winner of the Chiefs and Titans.

RECAP:

The Steelers enter the postseason as the number seed in the AFC and while holding the best record in all of football. Offensively the Steelers were led by their big three. Roethlisberger turned in his best season of his great career tying his career high in completion percentage while throwing for career highs in yards and TDs. Many around the building feel that it is down right ridiculous that he did not win the MVP. Le'Veon Bell continued to be a threat on the ground and through the air. His 1,617 yards and 16 TDs were both second in the NFL this season. Antonio Brown makes 100+ catch seasons look routine as he posted his 5th straight season of doing so. His 106 receptions led the league while his 1,571 yards were second in the league. He was also 2nd in TDs. The Steeler air attack was far from a one man show. Martavis Bryant returned from his suspension with a bang as he posted his first 1,000 yard season of his career and was tied for third in the NFL in TD catches at 12. Ladarius Green and Jesse James was the most productive TE tandem in the league as they combined for 84 receptions for 920 yards and 10 TDs. Eli Rogers continued to show his savviness in the slot as he consistently moved the chains for the high powered offense. Sammie Coates contributed with big play ability finding the endzone 5 times on just 25 catches. As a whole the Steelers had 8 different receivers catch TDs this year. The offensive line created holes for All-Pro Le'Veon Bell and kept QB Ben Roethlisberger clean as they continued to show that they can rival the group in Dallas. The Defense was led by ILB Ryan Shazier who turned an all pro season. He was all over the place recording sacks, INTs, and TFLs. The Steelers got after QBs all year long and took advantage of mistake throws from QBs. If there is one area of concern is their propensity to blitz has led to some big plays. The Steelers will have to limit those if they wish to continue being a top defense in the postseason.

Key takeaways
1:Even though it's he first preseason game, I had thought our team played well enough to win. With the new playbooks, learning them will take time. So a not so short leash will be had. As far as playbook learning goes.

2:No idea why Marshawn Lynch racked up 42 carries in the first preseason game and it seemed like they had first team defense out there for most of the game as well. As I had run with 1st team for the 1st half, and 2nd for the 3rd quarter and 3rd string for the 4th. I thought we played well. A lot of tackles were missed in the second half and Seattle was driving the ball easily down the stretch against our depth players but for the most part everything went to plan and it was a great game outcome for us.

3:Position battles are shaping up nicely. No clear winners yet, and they only one to take a step back would be Ponder. He had multiple chances to drive down and score in the fourth, but just couldn't execute. He held the ball for far too long on quick reads and just wasn't really effective. But next week vs the Ravens he will get first team reps so that will show his true ability to challenge for the position.

RB2:Matt Asiata/Jerick McKinnon
WR1/2:Greg Jennings/Jerome Simpson/Cordarrelle Patterson
RG1:Vladimir Ducasse/Brandon Fusco
CB2:Xavier Rhodes/Derek Cox
SS1:Andrew Sendejo/Jamarca Sanford

Primarily, the battles I'm watching are Both QB spots since I believe in having a good backup, the WR spots since I very rarely use 3 or more WRs so a 2 WR base needs to be the best ones, and the CB 2 spot. A classic veteran vs rookie battle.

*Coach Condon, having no NFL coaching experience let alone any college coaching experience, how do you believe that you are the right man for the job?

+Well I would believe that, that question would come as more of a question for the owner than myself but I'll try and keep our conversations in the hiring process simplified. The owner, Mr. Wilf, believes that the team became too exotic. Why build a passing game around a great RB in Adrian who can't catch? If he is your center stone, why isn't the offense conforming to him. Ziggy has been a great supporter of the gophers football team I volunteer as a scout for. He had noticed that many of the players I had coached at the Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity highschool football team had gone to the gophers and had very well success. So I do believe he wants a hometown coach for a good old fashioned team.

*What kind of offense and defense will you bring to this team?

+The same gameplans I have coached for years. I bring an old school offense filled with split backs and near formations and some full house. No shotgun. Everything is under center. As for defense, I like to run a base cover 2 4-3, with a rarely seen today 4-4 on running downs. Both schemes have a variety of man coverage and blitzes in them to keep defenders guessing. As with the 4-4, you always have 8 in the box, but you could bring any number of people in to blitz. The confusion is never ending. I never understood why it isn't used a lot any more. One more question please.

*How do you expect to succeed in a old school power running game when everything about this game has evolved into a passing league?

+That's exactly why it will work. Nobody has seen these formations in a long time in this league and the players maybe haven't since high school. Confusion wins a lot of games. Just ask the 85 bears and their 46 or Bill Walsh about his quick slinging QBs. Trends come and go. I'm ready for the running revaluation again. It's just a matter of time before we will need to change our game. But hopefully that won't come before a couple of rings. Now if you will excuse me, my wife has a pot roast in the oven that I can smell from here. Thank you.

A look at the depth chart shows a couple of things. OLB Anthony Chickillo won the starting job opposite of Bud Dupree and Angelo Roan showed enough to be the third guy in the rotation working both sides. Jerald Hawkins will serve as the team's swing tackle and Finney will work all three interior spots. Chris Hubbard has the ability to work all five spots giving us position flexibility and even more added depth. William Gay was able to hold on to his slot CB spot. Golson may push for time though due to him being athletically superior at this point. Jimmy Belcher will be the first outside CB off the bench if an injury occurs to Burns or Cockrell. Kenan McMilan won himself a KR spot and Demarcus Ayers will start the season as the PR, but a rotation could take palce to give Kurt Bauman who snuck onto the final 53 a chance to field some. Karlos Williams was cut during final cuts due to his 10 game suspension and the desire to keep certain guys who are in our plans beyond this season. Cobi Hamilton also found a way to stick around on the roster. Where he lacks in NFL athleticism he makes up with grit and unselfishness. He will serve as a key STer and is the best run blocking WR on the roster. Undrafted rookie Harmon Gilberry made the roster and will be contributing on ST while also serving as a reserve safety.

08:30 AM - January 7, 2017. Written by Steelers4190
Cleveland Browns
HC Hue Jackson returns to lead the Browns after a season that led to the number one overall pick. The Browns are a young team that showed fight last season. They look to be improved and their first three picks, all within the first thirty-three picks of the draft, look to step in as immediate starters. The Browns selected QB Shawn Leonhardt out of Indiana University with the thirteenth pick. Leonhardt played under Steelers HC Nick Cotner at Indiana and the Browns are hoping they finally hit on the position with the pick. Hue Jackson's staff has been very pleased with what he has shown this summer. The Browns have a solid group of backs with none being over the age of 24. Isaiah Crowell will lead the way as he comes off a 1,000 yard season and has a new contract to show for it. At the WR position Terrelle Pryor will lead the way after posting 81 catches for 1,125 yards and 13 TDs. He will be joined by last season's number one pick Cory Coleman and free agent acquisition Adam Thielen. Gary Barnidge will once again be the lead TE. The offensive line looks to be improved with the main battle being at Center. Incumbent Cameron Erving will battle 2nd round pick Glenn Leach for the position. Defensively the Browns will lean on Jamie Collins up front and number one overall pick FS Rayquez Bean on the back end. Jamar Taylor and Joe Haden will man the outside corner spots and Danny Shelton will look to build on his strong 2016 at Nose.


Cincinnati Bengals

After missing the Playoffs for the first time since Andy Dalton has been the starting QB for the Bengals they look to have a strong 2017. Dalton will return as the QB of the team and looks to build off his strong campaign that had him lead the league in completion percentage. Giovanni Bernard and Jeremy Hill return as the lead backs. Hill went over 1,000 yards and rushed for more than 10 TDs for the second time of his career. Bernard will look to continue his production as a change of pace back and receiver out of the back field. A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert will lead the pass catchers with FA acquisition Kenny Britt and 2nd year WR Tyler Boyd joining the bunch. The offensive line will have a new LT in 1st round pick Jaron Cunningham with Byron Stingly starting at the opposite tackle. Bodine will be at Center and enters the final year of his rookie contract. He has struggled mightily in his career and this could be his last season to prove something. Defensively the Bengals will lean on Carlos Dunlap and Karl Klug to provide pressure off the edge. The middle of the line has recieved a boost in the signing of Linval Joseph to pair him with Geno Atkins. The LB group will be led by the controversial Vontaze Brufict. The secondary will need William Jackson III to bounce back from the injury that sidelined him his entire rookie campaign. It enters the season as a weakness with Valentino Blake serving as the CB opposite Jackson III and headlines Tashaun Gipson and Shawn Williams at Safety.

Baltimore Ravens

Few teams were as injury stricken as the 2016 Ravens and this lead to the #3 overall pick. That marks two seasons in a row the Ravens have had to fight the injury plague. Joe Flacco returns at QB and will look to have more consistency with his WR group. Terrance West will headline the RB group with Kenneth Dixon and Devontae Booker behind him. Mike Wallace will be the teams number one WR and will be joined by former 1st round pick Breshad Perriman, who will try to shake the looming bust status, and rookie Antwan Highsmith out of Indiana. The Ravens have one of the deepest TE rooms in the NFL with Crockett Gilmore, Maxx Williams, Ben Watson, and Dennis Pitta. The offensive line looks to stay healthy and keep Flacco upright. They are lead by RG Marshal Yanda and 2nd year LT Ronnie Stanley. Defensively the Ravens will be led by LB CJ Mosely and 1st round pick LB Josiah Hansen. Terrell Suggs returns to help bring pressure on QBs. CB Jimmy Smith returns after missing 10 games and 2nd CB Tavon Young looks to build on his very strong rookie season.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers won 11 games in 2016, the division crown, and made it to the AFC Championship game. Their biggest change in the off season was the retirement of Mike Tomlin and the hiring of Nick Cotner to replace them. The Steelers enter the 2017 season with one of the strongest rosters in the league as Nick Cotner looks to add his flavor to Todd Haley's offense. On offense the Steelers will be led by the killer Bs and have one of the strongest offensive lines in the league with that unit being headlined by all pros Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro. WR Martavis Bryant rejoins the group after being suspended all of 2016. Defensively the Steelers will being depending on jumps from all three of their rookie starters from a year ago. Burns, Davis, and Hargrave all posted strong rookie campaigns and are on the cusp of becoming household names. The camp battles to watch will be at OLB between Rookie Angelo Roan and 3rd year man Anthony Chickillo and at slot corner between the savvy William Gay and young Senquez Golson who is finally healthy after spending his first two seasons on IR.
