    Author Danielle McCartan Eric Webb Matt Berkson Nicole Monique Scott Thompson

    What makes a great sports year? Do we define a sports year when the unthinkable becomes reality? When we say goodbye to greatness? Do we define the world of sports with the motto “anything could happen”? As we turn the page on 2016 in to 2017, the contributors of Back Sports Page look back at the year that was 2016 with their highlights and memories. Today we start with the NFL:

    Big Blue Report: Taming the Lions

    Looking to the Final Home Game of the Season!!

    Author Randy Zellea

    Looking Back Against the Cowboys:

    The fans of the Giants understood why Jerry Reese put as much attention in the defenses during the offseason as he did. The defense forced three turnovers and held the Cowboys to seven points. Giants Head Coach Ben McAdoo was happy with the team’s effort: “What we did well, tremendous effort by the defense all night. We stayed in the moment the entire 60 minutes of the ball game. I really thought we put our foot down in the second half of the game. We tackled fundamentally sound. We held the offense to seven points, minimized explosive gains and forced turnovers. What we need to work on, we need to keep them under 100 yards rushing and keep them out of field goal range at the end of the first half.”

Coin Toss- Steelers Report!

on Friday, 07 October 2016. Posted in Football

Which team are you getting this week?

Coin Toss- Steelers Report!

This week, flip a coin. Heads is the Steelers from Week Four. Tails is the Steelers from Week Three. I’ve never seen such a ten-fold flip in a team in one week. The Pittsburgh Steelers rocked the Kansas City Chiefs in Week Four 42-14 with the Chief’s 14 points coming late in the fourth quarter.

COACHES CORNER:

“…took the opportunity to respond to a negative performance.” –Mike Tomlin The Steelers showed the potential of their offense by dominating the entire game and rebounding from being man-handled by a rookie quarterback in

A quarter of the way through the NFL season, the Pittsburgh Steelers are tied for the AFC North division lead with the Baltimore Ravens at 3-1. With a win on Sunday, Pittsburgh would improve their all-time record against the Jets to 18-5 in the regular season.

Starting this week, I’m going to be doing the steel players of the week. Taking a look at the Steelers logo, the three colored stars represent three ingredients that are used to create steel. Yellow is coal and was used to fuel the fire. We’ll look at which player on the Steelers seemed to fuel the fire for the squad. Originally orange, the red star represents Ore, or the rock that is ground and heated to produce molten iron, will be the Steeler who held things together that week. Finally, the blue diamond signifies steel scrap. We’ll be looking at the overall scrap player, play, or team that could be, well, scrapped.

COALHe who fueled the fire – There could be a few choices for the Steelers who really took the bull by the horns in Week 4. My choice will be Vince Williams. With 1 sack, 13 tackles, and 2 assists, Williams was all over the field and really showed the “getting back to basics” mentality by wrapping up players, not just putting a shoulder into the opposing player. Williams was starting in place of the injured Ryan Shazier. Shazier is nursing a knee injury and is still questionable going into Week 5 against the Jets. However, if Williams can keep up this type of performance and add an interception onto his totals from this week, you may see a Defensive Player of the Week.

 OREThe rock who stood tall – In Week 4 against the Eagles, Ben Roethlisberger looked like he hadn’t practiced in months. He was throwing the ball high to tall receivers such as Jesse James and was dancing around in the pocket like Mumble in the movie, Happy Feet. But this week, he exemplified what Coach Tomlin said in his post-game conference on Tuesday, “…took the opportunity to respond to a negative performance.” And Roethlisberger succeeded. Five touchdowns and 300 passing yards later (thanks for the fantasy points), Roethlisberger was named Offensive Player of the Week. The 6’5” franchise quarterback stood tall in this batter against the Kansas City Chiefs which made him the rock of this week.

SCRAP METALScrap it…period – I’ve got to make our scrap metal this week the entire Kansas City offense. Alex Smith, Jeremy Maclin, and Travis Kelce showed no luster after their first drive of the game. It was only in the no-huddle offense late in the fourth quarter did the team come to life, but by then it was too late. If you look at the box score, it looks like a pretty close game. Kelce had one TD reception, Smith had two TD passes, and Maclin ended with 5 receptions for 78 yards. For PPR leagues, those aren’t terrible numbers. Andy Reid needs to throw away the playbook that was used for the three and half quarters before the end of the game. Who knows if it was just the Steeler D that was tired by that point? Regardless, scrap it…period. We’ll see what comes together this week in Pittsburgh against the New York Jets. It will be most interesting to see Steve McClendon, former Pittsburgh Steeler perform. Will there be that extra spark to keep LeVeon Bell at bay? Considering the weapons that #7 still has, I still see the Steelers putting up at least thirty points this week with the Defense pulling in two turnovers. Steelers improve to 4-1 with a score of 35-24.
