Fortunately our schedule is weaker than normal. We can handle average teams.
the steelers tend to play down against weaker opponents.

It's sort of ironic that both Dick and Mike T. have been DB players and coaches in the past.
no, it will be the same. 8 to 10 yard cushions and bland pass rushing. also, if harrison's back hindering him the defense will surely feel it.

he is one of the best ever yet people think he's getting old just because of one bad game. its impossible to shut down every team every game especially when your playing against a QB like Rodgers.

Hmmm.....if the success of our defense depends upon two players, then we are in trouble. Actually, GB had a lot more injuries than our team. I think they had at least 11 players on IR. As I said, I am not blaming Dick for the loss. I believe our offense and STs were responsible for giving up 21 points. Ben threw an INT from the end zone after our ST screwed up. Ben had a chance to pull it off but couldn't. At the end of the day, GB as a team played the game at a much higher level than our team.

We are not going to struggle against just any team that spreads the field, goes 2 TE, etc., but the Pats and at least once the Packers, have been able to show that if a really good team uses those plays that they can beat us. That being said, I hope he did a lot of new stuff for if we play a capable offense that spreads the field like the Packers, and maybe the Colts and Falcons. I hope we have a total different game scheme for Brady this year.
That's a good analysis--thanks. I am new to this forum and I like this much better than the other "message board".

You are right, Belichic has created the "blue print" on how to beat our defense consistently. Having said that, Mike T. has been able to beat him once and Rex Ryan has done a good job as well. I hope our team can somehow manage to beat the crap out of Brady & co.

First off, I fully believe that out of any team out there - the Steelers are the masters at not showing all their cards - and yes, even in a regular season game. The blatant prevent we used against the Patriots was hilarious. Am I saying we let them beat us? Heck no! Am I saying that we had something saved for a potential rematch? You betcha!

Secondly - regardless of all the mistakes of the secondary and the poor decision making by our offense and special teams in SB 45 - we still only lost by 6 pts. That is something to hang our hat on. We still ranked slightly above average in pass defense at the end of the season. We could have ranked worse except for the last 12 games we played - we ranked #1 in the league.

Thirdly - just like the Saints coach said after their loss to the 7-9 Seahawks in the playoffs - "Any given Sunday you can lose to a team you are better than - parity has prevailed." The Packers played A+ offense, turnover-creatin' defense and that's that. We played a D game and still STILL had a chance to win it in the end.

Fourthly - Oh ye of little faith. The Steelers haters have given this teams plenty of reason to prove some things wrongs. Backs are officially up against the wall. Que the Renegade music . . .

and I'll say now for the record that I made too many words plural due to Sam Adams Octoberfest.
