Default VICK

What is the thought on how we keep him in the pocket and make him pass without him burning us deep????


When he gets flushed out of the pocket is when he makes big plays can we contain him???

Our normal defense is three big guys up front, a LB on the right side, usually Porter, and another CB or S (Polo) trying to go up the middle or around the left side.

I don't see us changing this any other than maybe having the LB on the right responsible for containing his side, which means no speed rush from him.

Really it comes down to the LB's to keep Vick from breaking free.

They could try to not blitz him at all although I can't remember the last time our defense has not blitzed at least half the time.

I'm sure he will get away a few times.

pressure all day and collapse the pocket around him....we shouldnt change a thing...we also have the spped to catch him if he can get away...once that pocket collapses he aint goin nowhere....he cant bounce outside because of our backers and he sure aint runnin threw case hampton....well be fine trust me...and they better not try that weak ass option cuz it will go nowhere.

Keep the middle of the pocket filled and when the outside rushers close in on him, then let that person rush the middle and Vick should have no place to go.

The big thing is not to be overly aggressive and also not to sit back on any leads because as we've seen in the past, Vick can play when given the time (thus the reason we tied the last time we played them).

I would suggest rushing the minimum - you dont need pressure to make Vick force the ball where it shouldnt go.

The Steelers have a great match up in this game, not only do they have one of the elite run stopping D's to counteract the Atlanta strength - the also have a running attack capable of putting yards on Atlanta.

Broken plays are Vicks lifeblood - if the Steelers hold their shape they will be in a better position stop the run and also stop Vick breaking a big one.

Early prediction - Steelers 24 Atlanta 9 .

I agree not getting overly aggressive on the rush is the way to go. Vick cannot throw to a spot; he makes his passing yardage when everyone chases after him. However, with his still incredible speed (once that goes his game goes) Vick will get in some nice gains, just as Kordell would do. The more I see Vick the more he reminds me of a more talented version of Kordell who still has Kordell's critical flaws.

Howver, do not be deceived by the Giants second half running at will on the Falcons. Kearney and Coleman both got hurt and Abraham was pulled after hitting his 20 play limit coming back from a pulled groin - so the Falcons best DL were out of action in the second half. The Falcons have a decent run defense.

When healthy .... Right now, they're not.


I think you're going to see a nice pass/run mix. I expect BR to come out throwing then the WP show will begin. Heath has a nice game next week.
