Friday Night Steelers Six Pack of questions and open thread: Jaguars Edition

There is plenty to talk about regarding all things black-and-gold!

Several people have asked if we could bring back the Friday Night Open Thread. I had moved the event to Saturday morning, but after minimal success, I decided to bring it back to Friday night — with a slight twist.

I liked the Saturday Six-Pack theme, so I decided to just take the six questions and move them to Friday night. Say hello to Friday Night Six-Pack of Steelers Questions and open thread!

The rules haven’t...

NFL Expert Picks: Who the experts like in Steelers vs. Jaguars, Week 11

Time to take a look into who the experts like in this AFC battle with plenty of bad blood.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars have a history with one another which dates back to the days of the AFC Central division, but the most recent history leaves a bad taste in Steelers fans’ mouths.

The Jaguars came to Heinz Field twice in 2017 and beat the Steelers, the latter of those two meetings was the upset win in the AFC Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs. Needless to say, the...

Going Streaking: Contextualizing the Steelers’ current winning streaks

The Steelers presently have several winning streaks, both well-known and obscure.

“WE’RE GOING STREAKING!”

When I think of the current unbeaten streaks the Steelers have been extending as they seem to be clicking on all cylinders, I can’t help but envision all of Heinz Field chanting “Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank!” It’s hard to even hear the word “streak” without thinking of Will Ferrell, but the Steelers’ play as of late got me thinking about where their current win...

Running the numbers on Le’Veon Bell’s decision not to play in 2018

A look at the risk Bell is taking and what it’s likely to cost him.

I wonder what Richard Thaler thinks of the Le’Veon Bell saga. Thaler is known as the founder of Behavioral Economics, which is essentially the study of why human beings don’t make rational financial decisions. Cognitive limits, bias and emotion all cloud our ability to behave as mathematics tell us we should. The multi-year Le’Veon Bell drama would be a great case study for the academically curious.

Ever since Bell...

Week 11 betting preview: Steelers now 5.5-point favorites vs. Jaguars

We take a look at the latest odds for the Steelers’ clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to be strong favorites for their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the eyes of the bookmakers, with the spread appearing to have settled at 5.5-points as of Friday. After opening at 3.5-points and peaking at 6-points on Wednesday, it seems there has been very little support for the home from the betting public so far.

Black and Gold Links: Ravens Eric Weddle fined for helmet-to-helmet hit on JuJu Smith-Schuster

Time to check on the latest news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now won five straight games and continue to “stack wins.” After their 52-21 thrashing of the Carolina Panthers in Week 10, the team now has a chance to rest and relax and prepare for the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11.

Today in the Black-and-gold links article, we talk about how Baltimore Ravens safety Eric Weddle was heavily fined for his head-to-head hit on JuJu Smith-Schuster. This was...

Team execs believe Le'Veon Bell could ask for $16M or more per season

Steelers franchise-tagged running back Le’Veon Bell didn’t report earlier this week, meaning he won’t play in 2018 and will likely leave Pittsburgh next spring (the Steelers could still use the transition tender, but that wouldn’t bind Bell to Pittsburgh). Given that Bell will hit the open market, Mike Sando of ESPN.com (ESPN+ subscription required) asked NFL executives where Bell will play in 2019, and for how much. The Jets and Buccaneers are seemingly viewed as the favorites to...

Jaguars’ head coach Doug Marrone talks about the difficulty of defending the Steelers

Defending the Pittsburgh Steelers isn’t easy, and Jaguars’ Doug Marrone illustrates this perfectly.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have an offense which is something to behold. They are the NFL’s top red-zone offense, and rank third in 3rd down conversions. All while boosting their points-per-game average over 30 for the first time this season, 31 to be exact and that would be 4th in the NFL.

When you sit back and try to imagine what it would be like for a defensive coordinator to game plan...

Steelers players downplay talk of Le’Veon Bell’s locker being raided

Le’Veon Bell officially decided on Tuesday that he is not going to play in the NFL this season, and he has almost certainly played his last snap for the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, some of his former teammates say talk of them dismantling the star running back’s locker this week have been a bit exaggerated. On Wednesday, Steelers players went through Bell’s locker and messed around with some items, with linebacker Bud Dupree recording a video thanking Bell for the new cleats. But on...

Steelers reveal fate of Le’Veon Bell belongings after locker room raid

The fate of Le’Veon Bell’s belongings has been revealed after the members of the Pittsburgh Steelers raided his locker on Wednesday. What happened to Bell’s property was not nearly as sinister as it appeared. Footage of the scene posted to Twitter by ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler showed Steelers players plundering Bell’s belongings — miscellaneous gear, shirts, mixtape CDs and the like — after removing the nameplate above the locker. Reports suggested that Bell’s property was being...

Crunching the Numbers: The Pittsburgh Steelers, the game after

Analyzing outcomes which follow scoring over 50 points, perfect QBR performances, and Thursday games.

3-2

In games where the Steelers have scored more than 50 points, they have an all-time record of 3–2 the following week. In 1952 and 1954, the Steelers were victorious the week after scoring 63 and 55 points respectively. The Steelers scored 57 points in their final game of 1967 to bring their record to 5-8-1, so there was no game the following week. In 1979 and 1984, the Steelers lost...

The Steelers, and their fans, regain their swagger heading into Week 11

It took a while, but the Steelers, and their fans, have their swagger back.

The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t get off to a great start. After all, there was a reason Mike Tomlin referred to the team’s horrid start as the “September Stench”. Nonetheless, the uber talented group rebounded from their 1-2-1 start, and have rattled off 5 straight wins heading into a Week 11 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Yeah, the swagger is back.

Unlike recent years, there aren’t players chirping...

Le’Veon Bell’s nameplate removed from his locker when it’s raided by Steelers players

Since he is no long part of the team, he has no need of a locker and his former teammates helped by cleaning it out for him on Wednesday.

With Le’Veon Bell deciding not to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers this season, he no longer has need of his locker that has remained largely untouched throughout the year. At least it had been until Wednesday when his former teammates decided to have a look through the possession he had left behind.

In what seems to be more of a playful moment that a...

The Steelers have seen the time of two of their upcoming games changed, with one moving to Sunday night and the other being flexed out of primetime.

Just a week after it was announced that CBS had protected the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Los Angeles Chargers from being flexed to primetime in Week 13, it turns out they have given into to pressure from the league to allow the contest to be move to Sunday night after all.
