That's what I was thinking. I had their run game stuffed so why let this guy lose when we could just contain him and make him beat us from the pocket. It worked so you won't hear me complain.

New York Times sums it up - Steelers did not need to take chances yesterday

Itís apparent the Steelers watched the Seahawks tape this past week and concluded that they didnít need to do anything on Sunday other than show up and play their game. They knew there was no way Tarvaris Jackson, with his jittery and unrefined pocket mechanics, could beat them. They were content with blitzing less and forcing Jackson to be a decision-maker

so in other words, lebeau just decided to play to his players strengths and let them decide the game as opposed to out scheming, and tricking the opponent with exotic blitzes and x's and o's he drew up on a chalkboard.

you mean he just stepped aside and let his players decide the game with some gool ol fashioned, conventional, physical football?

damn, imagine how good our offense would be if mad scientist bruce could give that a try.
