Default Re: Midseason Report Card for the Steelers and Prediction

QB: B+ I believe there are times when Ben does not throw the ball and would rather scramble until some one frees up, first half at Denver. But in the second half he came out firing. # step drop and the ball was out.

RB: A Willie always runs hard and the only reason he gets stopped for a loss is blocking.
WR/TE: B+ maybe its not in some game plans but I would love to see Matt S more involved. The WR are playing great.
OLine: B- They haven't been together for a while this will be an A by game 12

Offense: B- Play calling at times, I believe we call to many passing plays. If a team cant stop the run, run the ball down their throat.

DLine: C I know there job is to clog holes and they do a good job of that. But we dont get ascks unless its a linebacker doing it. We need a pass rushing DE or TK

LBers: A+ Nothing needs said here!

Secondary: B- As for play so far, but when they go up against a passing offense I hope they can still get the job done.

Defense: A Even though there are times were they give up some plays the D is solid all around

Special Teams: B

Coaching: B+ there are times when instead of doing the thing the defense is worst at they continue to call plays that goes to their strength, doesnt make sense.

2007 Regular Season Final Record: 12-4 up from 10-6

Team grade: A The team has come together well under Tomlin and they love to play for him. Even though they did not get Russ or Ken that speaks volumes on both players and the coaching staff . You may win a few games with a new coach. Gruden won the Superbowl with TB. But he was already an NFL head coach. For the team to be doing this well has to surprise a lot of people. But I bet it doesnt suprise the Rooneys.

Why am I the only person that did not give the LB'ers an A???

The most important part of a 3-4 defense is the OLB's getting pressure on the QB consistently which Harrison and Haggans especially have not done.

This is likely Haggans last season with us anyways, its time to start splitting his playing time with Woodley

DL=A(with Smith) C without
Special Teams=C+
Over All Team
Tomlin has brought a new enthusiasm to our team and I like the way
we are headed right now. Our OLB's need Alot more production. And our O Line needs more consistency and better pass blocking.

I'm waiting for Mondays game, which is the true halfway point. The rats game will go a long way to determining my grades.

QB: - A solid B played some top-quality football, but I still get a bit nervous when we're chasing games.

RB: B+ Making yards when it counts - the one-two attack of FWP & Najeh looks good, but would like more TDs.

WR/TE: A- Most improved area of the team IMHO - we carry a genuine arial threat.

OLine: C+ Still looking creaky on Pass protection, but better than last year.

Offense: B Pretty good and with multiple threats.

DLine: A- Looking good for the most part so far

LBers: A Terrific against the run.

Secondary: B- Teams with a decent QB still seem to have a deep threat against us.

Defense: B+ With secondary play in the second half of the season this will rise

Special Teams: B Kicking not really a problem Sepulveda is the real deal and Reed looks less out of sorts, but return coverage still makes me sweat a bit.

Coaching: B+ Solid in any regard, but in a rookie year, pretty impressive.

2007 Regular Season Final Record:11-5
