The key will be to get to Brady I don't care what packages we run we need to get to him and hurt him a little bit
I don't think he was sacked the last two games we Played them

I agree with you about pressure on Brady but it has to come up the front and not from the side. I would have delayed blitzes up the middle. If you blitz too quick, they will pick it up but if you wait a sec - I think there may be gaps up the middle for us to pick on.
I disagree with Lewis and Timmons, I think they are capable, especially Lewis. I agree though that delaying the blitzes some of the time is a great idea.

I would be very surprised if we don't see a lot of nickel and dime defensive formations tomorrow.
As mentioned above, I think we just have to disguise the blitz, we can blitz him, other teams have blitzed him and he's horrible when they do. I think though that a direct blitz at brady would be a "myth" because if there is no disguising it, the o line is good enough to give him 1-2 seconds at least, and if we are blitzing somebody will probably get open on a short pass. I also agree that we should run a lot of dime and nickel, it was mentioned that it takes our best players off the field and that is true, but in this game our best players which in this case would be DL or LB's, have yet to get the job done against this team and don't match up well. I would run nickle/dime a lot, but I would still blitz often, even out of those packages.


By the way, regarding PatsFan09's post, that was probably the most respectful and HONEST/LOGICAL post from a fan of another team on this board.

Hit the prick. I put it all on Lamarr to either win or lose the game.

1) Sit Casey Hampton the entire game.

2) Send 4 guys at Brady...Keisel, Hoke, Wood, Woodley

3) Unfortunately, Timmons is going to have to cover a tight end a LOT.

4) The rest...just gotta cover.


If the Steelers can't get pressure on Brady with just their front 4 guys (like the Giants did in the Super Bowl) the Patsies are going to eat the Steelers alive.

That's it.

Key to the game is have 4 guys get pressure.

It really does suck that Harrison or Worilds can't go today again, otherwise we could of used Timmons inside to try to cover one of their TEs.
