Steelers Fans

Does playing Renegade in the fourth quarter help the Pittsburgh Steelers win? A new study think so. Jerome Bettis, Ryan Shazier and Mike Tomlin all took part in the opening Saturday of college football.

🏈 Steelers Steelers legend Jerome Bettis was on the field with Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott before the Notre Dame-Ohio State game on Saturday night.

🏈 Steelers Research conducted by students at Point Park University found that “Renegade”Β actually does help the Steelers’ defense. The students found that theΒ Steelers maintained a lead in 33 games (61.1%) and came from behind to win or tie in six games (11.1%); they lost the lead in eight games (14.8%) and continued losing in seven games (13.0%).Β Opposing teams were seven times more likely to fumble on the very next play, or 7% of the time. TheΒ results came from over 54 home games from 2014-21.

🏈 Steelers NFL analyst Scott Kacsmar doesn’t think Mitch Trubisky is anΒ upgrade over the 2020-21 form of Ben Roethlisberger. According to Kacsmar, Trubisky’s average touchdown pass is 13.6 yards, the shortest in NFL history among the 221 quarterbacks to throw 50+ touchdown passes.Β Kacsmar also examined every instance of a Hall of Fame (or in the discussion) quarterback in the salary cap era and what his team did without him for that first season. He found that In 15 seasons, those teams missed the playoffs 13 times and had a losing record 11 times. The 1995 Chiefs (Steve Bono) and 2000 Dolphins (Jay Fielder) were the two quarterbacks who led their respective teams to the playoffs.


🏈 Steelers The Steelers are off until Monday.
