Default Keys to Steeler Victory?

Something that i noticed right away as i watched the balt-NE game....Balt took Welker right out of the game by jamming him at the line of scrimmage...With troy apparently out who do you think will fill that role? Mcffadden??? Deshea????

Also, Lebeau has a tendency to play his corners way off the LOS....after what we saw last Monday night, there is no way we give Welker freedom to run his routes....Is there???

If we follow the "blueprint" showed to us by balt and jam Welker early in routes....we might be able to contain him with just one defender.....this would allow ample over the top help for Mr Moss

We gotta get pressure on Brady!!!!!

Man i cant wait for this game

Deshea will be covering either Welker or Stallworth. The reciever he doesn't cover will probally have McFadden shutting him down.

The problem is that NE likes to run the WR screen more than any other team and with our DBs playing 10 yards of the LOS, it could pose a potential problem for our defense.

I think we definitely need to jam the receivers at the line and play smaller cushions. Then we'd have to go man up on the WRs and let our blitz go all out on Brady - otherwise it could be a very long game.

ike and anthony on moss
deshea on welker
mcfadden on stallworth

these are obvious matchups, our questions are who will cover gaffney, or washington, or even watson. we need to play press coverage against them just like how we did vs. cincy. i noticed on 3rd down the corners were playing press against housh and chad and stayed off of henry.

One has to be Farrior and Foote not letting Watson and Faulk carve them up over the middle. They are going to have to play lights out on those SOBs

A worry here:

Both the Eagles and Ravens didn't have much to lose, so they just threw the kitchen sink at the Pats and played their hearts out, nearly winning. The problem is, the Steelers are 9-3, and would a winning team want to be more cautious and conservative, not having the recklessness? That might be bad against the Pats.


Pittsburgh has the goods to do it. Chew up the clock with the running game, sack and harass Brady all day, and your chances are good then.

deshea has been playing out of his mind this year. he's doing as good a shut down job on his side of the field as taylor's doing on his side. the only time deshea run into problems is against taller receivers. he can run stride for stride with about any receiver, but those friggin jump balls are his only problem.

They dont have the talent to match the Patsies but the Steelers do.
