Default Activate Reid and go 5 Wide Monday

our line was downright terrible against the ravens last year. i have a feeling that still will be a problem monday. i think we should try spreading the ravens out more to minimize the blitzing. if they bring a lot of guys, reid, wilson, or someone should be open close for a dump off pass in a 5 wide set. i have heard a number of fans wanting to bring back this set in the offseason, this would probably be the best time to do it this season.

Thats a good idea. Tuman is listed as doubtful so they should just deactivate him and dress Willie Reid. Reid is really good at catching screen passes and getting positive yardage

Protecting Ben is crucial in this game. The Ravens are going to be out for blood

I say work on it; keep it in the books, but don't use it until nessecery. Last year and this year are night and day. I think we can run on these guys with some decent success.

i adree with you the Steelers need to be in a spread formation most of the game. At the same time they don' want the Ravens pinning their ears back and rushing and hurrying all night Ben all night. This is won of those games where even in the ground attack is not getting a lot of yards you still run the ball on first down or ben will be on his back all night.

I think it's about time to try out that no huddle package and keep the Ravens off balance.

I noticed that Buffalo ran a lot of no-huddle against Baltimore two weeks ago. Had to be somewhat successful seeing as how they won the game.

it was.. i watched the entire game. gotta keep them on their heels.. im not saying dont run, but in some passing situations, i wouldnt mind seeing 5 wide sets in situations where we think they are going to blitz.

For all this happen still o-line must do its job. Blocking blocking blocking if we want these screens to work. We must have a backup plan if and prob. when the run game is shut down.

Screen plays seem like a great idea seeing how good it worked against us in the game vs Denver when we blitzed and they had a 4-5 WR screen which usally a first down!

I'd also like to see some routes that are designed to get the ball out of Big Ben's hands faster. The raven's will eat him alive again if they get through our porous o-line on every down, despite the fact he's back to his mobile ways.
