I say running too much when the defense knew it was coming and vice versa.

How many times do teams just know it’s a run on first down?

How often does our formation telegraph run?

How often are our run plays very similiar in design?

I’d start there.


Yet 1st and 10 is the best down and distance to pass, and we run a ton on 1st down.

This year we were in a lot of 2nd and long it seems.


Are you complaining? I love 2nd and long....was all part of the master plan.

With a few minutes of searching, which i'm unwilling to do, someone could find the Steelers % of runs/passes on first down and how that compares to the league. Over/under is that the Steelers are top 10 in pass percentage on first down.

Challenge accepted...
In 2017, the Steelers rushed the football on 26.60% of their first downs. Ranked 25th in the league, right behind the Pats at 26.70%. Dallas, of course, was 1st at 40.45%.

Thanks Jobu. That's about what I expected.

Steelers running all the time on 1st and 10 is mythology

Huh? I'm looking at 231 rushes on 1st down vs. 234 pass attempts. So almost exactly 50/50, which is about what it should be.

FYI....7.6 YPA vs. 3.4 YPC.

That’s were I found the numbers...but looking at it now, that could be the percentage of first downs achieved by rushing the ball, rather than attempts on first down.
Sorry for the mistake...I simply googled “2018 Pittsburgh Steelers first down rushing %...that’s what popped up.
