Default How will our secondary match up against J-ville???

I'm pretty confident in the steelers on this game regardless who is underneath center (as long as it's not maddox ) ... however, one thing that does concern me is the height of the jacksonville recievers ... matt jones is 6'6 and wilford and williams are both listed at 6'4 ... I think the tallest player in the secondary that we have is 6'0ish ... any thoughts?

Ummmm - need I remind you that Maddox is no longer a Steeler, so why bring him up? Put the past where it belong - in the PAST and move on.

I don't think height should be a major concern here. The bigger they are, the harder they fall, as the saying goes. I think our secondary can and will handle them, but remember - Leftwich has to have time to look for one of them and toss the pigskin- if the Steelers put pressure on him early and often, he's bound to hurry those throws, leading to mistakes. I'm more concerned about the Jags D than I am their O.

Jump balls are always a concern when you have tall receivers and short corners. We just can't leave Townsend in one on one situations. I trust Ike to handle his...

If Leftwich is constantly feelin pressure from the D-Line (ie: Porter, Farrior, Foote down his throat) then he will be unable to get comfortable in the pocket (and prolly flushed out) and become more prone to throw under-confident passes....which are more prone to become interceptions. I'll admit our secondary could use some reinforcement or just some more "fire." However when sync'd together the D-Line pressure and an interception hungry secondary the Steelers can do a lot of damage.

The Jags D is a bit of a worry. Bein that the Steelers don't have an over 6 ft. receiver they will have to play smart wit the passin game keepin the jags guessin on who (Ward, Wilson, Washington, Holmes, Miller, Parker, Haynes, Staley) is goin to the the ball to put it downfield.

just to clear things up cb ike taylor is 6'1" (one of the taller and bigger cb's in the league) and wr nate washington is like 6'2". ike talyor was talking about facing taller wr's this week on sirius radio. lebeau has him coached up. he knows what to do and the techniques to use (play the back shoulder)

no worries. thats not to say matt jones wont score. he is such a freak he should be able to score a touchdown every game. in this case keeping him out of the endzone or big plays really comes down to gameplanning. his td against the steelers last year was simply an amazing play on the ball.

I would have to agree that Matt Jones is th up and coming future star for the Jags, being in Jax myself I have seen many games on how Matt Jones plays. Although it is reported he is a fast reciever, I have yet to really see him burn a corner during the season. He really excels over the middle and all we need to do is have good ole polamalu or joey porter just pop him a good one and slow him down a bit. Other than that Wilford is on the rise, but still very young and drop many passes. As long as we stop Matt Jones then I can see us dominating in the secondary.

Sounds like a Fantasy Football Leaguer to me (lol)!

Truly, I don't think we'll have too much of a problem with the taller receivers. It's not like we haven't faced tall WRs before and we'll face them again. It's not about the size of a player, it's about the execution of the team. I feel that our Defense definitely outplay their Offense.

I also believe that their D (as good as it can be) will not be able to go 60 minutes with our Offense.

Thanks for the info, I knew Ike was a decent size but I didn't know Washington's height. Hearin that encourages me as to his possible effectiveness. He has already made a few big plays and at this rate, as I predicted, he is goin to have a break out year wit the Steelers.

If i was jacksonville.. I would just not run it ... use F Taylor out of the backfield for passes and just throw every down on us.. Teams that do that have success and no way our secondary can handle it. Why team try running out of the gate and get into 3rd and 5 or 7 and then pass i dont know why. Using F Taylor like that on short dump passes i think would be more effective for them.....
