Steelers beat Bills in unimpressive manner

first_imgPittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) is sacked by Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Jerry Hughes (55) and Buffalo Bills free safety Jim Leonhard (35) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)It might just be me and maybe I see the glass as half empty but after the Steelers beat the Bills 23-10 on Sunday, I wasn’t left impressed.Sure, the game really wasn’t in question after the 2nd quarter but this victory was hollow. The Steelers beat a team who was just as bad as they are. The Bills are 3-6, so are the Steelers. If anyone expected the Bills to put on a display like the Patriots did a week prior, they don’t understand football.  Yes, the defense looked far better than they did last week but how could they look worse? Anything was an improvement when you come off the worst defensive performance in the history of the franchise.  Don’t discount the fact the Bills were starting a rookie quarterback who hadn’t played in five weeks. One would hope a veteran laced team would be able to stop a rookie who hadn’t played in over a month.  I’ve seen many writers discuss the Steelers run defense on Sunday and how great it was.  Sure, they stopped Fred Jackson, he was held to 55 yards but he did that on a mere 12 carries. In fact the Bills only ran the ball a total of 22 times and they still managed 95 yards.  They had to throw it 39 times since they were playing from behind in the second half. Obviously the number of rushing yards would be diminished.Being the bearer of bad news is no fun but facts are facts, this wasn’t as impressive of a defensive performance as many would like it be. The three sacks and the interception are the flashy items here that many will point to but the game was well in hand when all of those occurred, they didn’t come in the clutch, which is what top notch defenses will do.Further complicating the matter is the offense. They did enough to win against a bad football team. They once again found a way to turn sure touchdown opportunities into field goals and managed to get Big Ben sacked another four times.  This line is destined to get Roethlisberger killed one of these days but when you win, people overlook the flaws.  All game long we were told of how great LeVeon Bell is. He does have talent, and he may one day be a true feature back but at this point, I’m not seeing him as ‘great’. He managed 57 yards on 22 carries.  Remember, the Bills had 22 carries for 95 yards.  The best back on this team at this juncture is Jonathan Dwyer, he has the best YPC average and runs the ball hard and is deceptively fast. Mike Tomlin is too stubborn to let Dwyer out of the dog house because he came into camp out of shape in 2011.  Get over yourself Mike, do what’s right here, play the best man.Tomlin can’t preach ‘changes’ and ‘the best men will play’ when he can’t get over a grudge going on for over two years.  Hypocrisy thy name is Coach Tomlin.   Additionally, he needs to find the best man to run this offense because the current man, Todd Haley, is not it. Haley’s play calls are just not getting it done. The Wildcat they have implemented is a joke. Welcome to the NFL of 2008 Steelers fans. It’s the best way to get your QB killed too. Do you think the Pats, Saints or Broncos would EVER line up Brady, Brees or Manning out wide? It’s giving the opposing defense a free shot at the franchise man.  Why do the Steelers try it? One, the play calling is awful and two, the play calling is ineffective so they try to throw in a wrinkle. Neither reason is good and Haley must go.In the end, the Steelers were better than the Bills and they came out with a win. I hate to be the Debbie Downer but there was nothing to be impressed about in this particular game. To me it just means the team will no longer have a shot at finishing 2-14 but could still go 3-13.  They need to improve dramatically if they want to change my mind at this point.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com- Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

Rebels roll to 5-0 win over hapless Leafs

first_imgThere’s a reason why the Castlegar Rebels are Kootenay International Junior Hockey League regular season champs.The Rebels have not one but two great goalies, the defence is solid anchored by captain Erik Alden and the forwards skate miles and hit anything that moves in the opposing jersey.All three facets were on display as the Rebels rolled past a Nelson Leafs team that only a few weeks ago was on pace to clinch their own league crown.“We were had with a bunch of adversity on the team, hit a slump and just couldn’t recover,” said Leaf captain Colton Schell after the Rebels put a 5-0 pounding on the Green and White in KIJHL action before 700-plus fans Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.Despite entering the contest winless in six games, Nelson could still clinch home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.But any momentum the Leafs had playing the final game of the regular season at home was dashed 28 seconds into the game when Diego Bartlett scored his first of two on the night.Two power play goals in the second period by Bartlett and Bryan Lubin, the latter coming on a perfect backdoor play Nelson goalie Marcus Beesley had no chance of stopping, and the rout was on.Castlegar’s leading scorer Stuart Walton ended any chance of a third-period comeback with an unassisted marker 65 seconds into the third frame before Braydon Horcoff rounded out the scoring. Five goals was more than enough for perhaps league MVP Jordan Gluck who continues to frustrate the Leafs.Gluck made 22 saves to register his third shutout of the season against Nelson.In five games against the Leafs this season, the Scarsdale, NY native has won all five times, shutout the Leafs three times and has sparked the Rebels to an 18-4 goal advantage.“I don’t know what happened because we all knew going into the game that a win gives us home ice advantage (in the first round of the playoffs),” Schell said.“I don’t know if some of the guys weren’t prepared or what but we took bad penalties and they capitalized on their power play while we couldn’t score on ours.”Castlegar, winners of six straight heading into the playoffs, host Spokane Braves in round of the Murdoch Division semi finals beginning Friday in the Sunflower City while Nelson travels to Fruitvale to face the Hawks on the same night.Game two goes Saturday in Castlegar and Fruitvale before the series shift to Spokane and Nelson Monday, February 25.BLUELINES: Referee Jim Maniago handed out more than 100 minutes in penalties in the chippy game. . . .Rebels Stuart Walton and Leafs James Sorrey were ejected in the third for fighting. . . .Leafs played without the services of rookie defenceman Cole Arcuri, out for the season with a shoulder injury. . . . Beaver Valley swept its weekend series against Spokane, winning the final game 4-1 to clinch second place in the Murdcoh Division, two points in front of Nelson.last_img read more

Magistrate throws out Police charges against SuperBet operators

first_imgMagistrate Leron Daly on Friday dismissed 10 charges against several SuperBet operators after the Guyana Police Force’s prosecutors failed to provide evidence that they had jurisdiction to investigate and charge the operators.Following civil proceedings filed by Guiana Holding Inc at the High Court to reverse the decision of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), which requires that the company submits a Certificate of Good Standing as a condition prior to the issuance of a Betting Shop licence under the provisions of the Tax Act, several SuperBet operators, specifically in the areas of Georgetown and the East Bank of Demerara, were summoned to appear in court on Friday to answer charges filed by the Guyana Police Force (GPF).The Georgetown agents: Devanand Singh, Rhonda Josiah, Kurt Sunich and Devendra Gangaran, all appeared before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday last; while the East Bank agents, namely: Roumayne Dunn, Lachman Fredrick, Jessica William and Hamauth Satayadeo, appeared before the Providence Magistrate’s Court.They are being represented by Attorney Anil Nandlall. At the initial hearing, Nandlall made objection to the charges being read on the ground that the Police have no jurisdiction to prosecute revenue charges.The charges were not read, and Magistrate Daly, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, adjourned the matter to Friday August 16, and asked the Police to provide evidence that they were authorised to prosecute.When the case was called again, the Police Prosecutors failed to provide the requested evidence, and instead argued that the Police Act empowers the Guyana Police Force to investigate and institute charges of any kind.However, defense attorney Nandlall countered this with the fact that the Guyana Revenue Authority is the sole entity authorised to prosecute revenue-type charges.“I pointed out that is so except where another Act provides for another agency to prosecute, especially a law that is passed after the Police Act. The Guyana Revenue Authority was created by the Guyana Revenue Authority Act of 2000, and that Act authorises the Revenue Authority to charge persons and to prosecute persons for offences in relation to revenue.“The charges that SuperBet were slapped with were charges under the Tax Act. They were revenue-type charges, therefore only the Guyana Revenue Authority is authorised in law to prosecute and institute the charges.“The Magistrate upheld my submissions and dismissed the 10 charges,” Nandlall told Guyana Times in a post-hearing interview.In addition, Nandlall underscored that pending the dismissal of the charges, the persons charged will be advised to sue the Police and Attorney General for compensation for malicious prosecution.The matters are being heard before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Providence Magistrate’s Court, and will be heard on September 02, after the Police Prosecutors there requested more time in order to obtain advice.last_img read more

Film Study: Cowboy Run Game is Key Against Texas

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The Oklahoma State Cowboys had the most successful run performances against Baylor last week, but that might not be the case this week versus Texas.The Longhorns have a stout front seven, one of the better ones in the conference, and defend the run exceptionally well. They currently have the third-best run defense in the Big 12, giving up around 150.7 YPG on the ground.Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich spoke on the Longhorns’ exceptional front on Monday.“They are very good at defending the inside run,” Yurcich said. “They’re stout up front and their structures and fronts take away a lot of inside runs, whether they are gap schemes or zones. They do a great job from the interior standpoint and where they’ve been hurt is the outside run, but when you get them stretched, it’s time to attack them on the inside. You can’t be exclusive or have one-dimensional-type runs.”Head coach Mike Gundy had the same sentiments on the ‘Horns.“The personnel that they play with is very rarely undersized at any position,” Gundy said. “They’re 300-pound guys that move well and that’s the situation that we’re facing this week.”The Cowboys have shown the ability to run the ball between the tackles as of late, but their outside run game is a different story. They ran a lot of outside zone against the Bears last week, and they often ended up as a tackle for loss because of backside pursuit:pursuit_tflThe contain players shedding their blocks:contain_tflOr a combination of the two:flow_tflYes, UT is coming off a 50-43 loss against Cal, but that was against a spread team. The Cowboys, despite what anyone tells you, are not a spread team anymore. While Cal had success on the ground in a lot of 10 personnel formations (one back, no tight ends), the Cowboys do it exclusively in either 11 or 12 personnel (one back, one/two tight ends). That means more players in between the tackles, both offensively and defensively.That does not mean that the Pokes won’t put together a spread game plan to try to replicate what Cal did offensively. But they’ll always go back to their base plays. If the Cowboys try and outside zone their way down the field against the Longhorns, players like defensive tackle Paul Boyette or linebacker Malik Jefferson will make sure that goes nowhere. OSU wants to run the ball on the outside, and that’s fine, but they’ll have to get creative if they want to find success.How would you game plan against Texas?

OSU’s Offense Is a Chameleon Which Means The Defense Needs To Change With It

first_imgWhen your offense scores quickly like it was against Pitt and takes deep shots over and over again, you can completely flip a game based on one or two turnovers with your defense. Long TD. Pick. Another long TD. Bing-bang-boom. You’re up three scores. But when you’re controlling clock on offense (which OSU knew it was going to try and do against Baylor), all you want are stops because you know you can destroy a team’s will by munching up a 85-yard drive over nine minutes.So I guess my thought in all of this is that the the offensive game-plan actually seems fine (fine enough to be top 40 in the country). I’m OK with it changing based on the type of defense another team plays. I just want the type of defense OSU plays to actually change with it. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. We have seen five weeks of OSU football, and it feels like we have seen five different teams on the offensive side of the ball. It’s such a change from the “you know what you’re getting” days of Dana Holgorsen and Todd Monken. Holgorsen ran like seven plays on offense. They all almost always worked. There were variations, but it was quite simple.Mike Yurcich is more NFL-like in his play-calling. Especially in his game-planning. He was essentially shouting this from the rooftop before the Texas game.“They’re very well coached,” said Yurcich of Texas. “They have six returning starters so they have experience and some talent. They can rush the passer very well and they’re doing pretty well in the sack category. They have a lot of different fronts, a lot of different coverages, different blitz packages as well and they do a lot of things to disguise their looks. It’s a challenge going against Texas and everything that they do, so you have to be able to prepare your guys and make sure your package is complete against every situation and every look you’re going to get.“They are very good at defending the inside run. They’re stout up front and their structures and fronts take away a lot of inside runs, whether they are gap schemes or zones. They do a great job from the interior standpoint and where they’ve been hurt is the outside run, but when you get them stretched, it’s time to attack them on the inside. You can’t be exclusive or have one-dimensional-type runs.”You can’t be exclusive or have one-dimensional runs. Can you imagine Monken or Holgorsen saying something like this? Holgorsen probably snail mailed his playbook to opposing defensive coordinators just to get himself inside their heads and then ran all the plays he sent to them anyway. That’s how straightforward those teams were. They had a bunch of RPOs (™ Thomas Fleming), but they didn’t experience wild swings in offensive philosophy like it seems this one has.To be clear, I don’t think one way is necessarily better than the other — they are just very different. Yurcich continued about this after the Texas game.“Quite a few [plays were changed at the line of scrimmage],” said Yurcich. “I don’t know the exact number. The ability to get ourselves in the best situation possible, based on what their look was, was advantageous to us in that particular ballgame.”The Baylor game just a week earlier was much different. OSU looked like a Big 10 team.“We felt like the last two years we got in a track meet with them, and we couldn’t run with them,” said Mike Gundy. “And so we wanted to be able to establish some running game, use a little bit of clock with playing on the road.”“We had so many long drives, man, gave our defense a chance to recover and game plan over on the sidelines and I think Coach Yurcich called an incredible game,” added Mason Rudolph. “A lot of successful runs, a lot of play action, a lot of different stuff. We’ve just got to finish when it counts and we’ll get better, though.”Great! OSU looked strong on offense both weeks. Here’s the only problem with OSU changing its offensive plan drastically week in and week out: Philosophically, when your offense is changing from game to game, it puts pressure on your defense to change with it. But it doesn’t seem like OSU’s defense is changing.Take the Baylor game for example. OSU was taking chances against Baylor to get picks and fumbles like it always does. It tried to stop the run at the expense of what seems to be an average secondary (and I’m being kind!) Glenn Spencer talks about that here. It got housed because Baylor is good on offense (and because OSU might not be good on defense).The problem I had with this is that all you needed is, like, a stop or maybe two. You didn’t need picks like you usually do to flip a game. You should have been playing to get stops and not INTs against Baylor. OSU’s offense was manhandling that entire game, and its defense wasn’t situated properly from a philosophical standpoint. It was the same type defense it played against Pitt. But against Pitt, it got several more chances on defense to make something happen. It’s OK in a game like the Pitt game to take some chances on [email protected] if you play slower I wouldn’t be so aggressive. To me an attacking defense makes sense with tempo because the bang or bust…— Blake Huddleston (@CoachHuddleston) September 25, 2016last_img read more
