I doubt it. We need to come out throwing anyways. Ravens are #1 in the NFL giving up 2.9 yards per carry.

I definitely hope Kreider can play though. After we get a lead we will definitely need him to get any kind of effective running game going on this stout defense

Its funny because for everything that is changed there is always a reason for it.

Kreider job lost to Carey Davis-No Reason!

Maybe this quote from Coach Tomlin's 9/11/07 press conference will shed some light on the fullback position:

Quote:
Specifically on Carey, he did exactly what we anticipated him doing. He?s a very athletic guy from a fullback standpoint. He can get hats on people in space. He?s a great perimeter lead blocker. He showed up big time for us in the special teams game. He emerged in that area before he emerged as a runner and as a fullback specifically. He made a big play for us in the kicking game. What we do offensively in terms of who starts, I think, at times that can be overblown. It depends on how we want to attack people. We can start in two tight ends; we can start in three wides; we can start out with Carey or we can start out with Dan (Kreider). Dan is still a great isolation, short-yardage blocker. When we had some time consuming drives in the second half, it was because Dan was playing fullback. We just want to be multiple. We have what we believe to be a lot of weapons. We want to use them all. Of course we can?t use them all at the same time. Last week?s game plan dictated that Carey got the start. Maybe next week?s game plan dictates that (Matt) Spaeth gets the start, or maybe Dan gets the start. We?re not worried about who starts. Everybody has got to be ready to contribute and that?s our mentality in regards to those men.

I was thinking the same thing about Tomlin starting Dan on Sunday. He may not have read this thread but you can tell when he sees something that might help the offense or defense nothing is set in stone. He will make the change.

Also I agree we will probably pass more against the Ravens but must establish the run to set up play action.

i was glad to see dan get a start anyway. hopefully more are in store. boy do i hate to see him go. i always look for him in that low crouch in the backfield.

what do you guys think the odds are that he gets another year?
