yeah 45 pts like they did to the Bungles, but actually I think if our D plays a good game, we match up well against the Colts, they cant run on us, nobody can. So we drop in another corner (Willie maybe), bump the receivers at the line and disrupt the timing patterns and suddenly the super O will not be so super anylonger, I dont think it will be a shootout by any stretch of the imagination

Our defense is a much better unit than the bengals have, and theirs isnt a bad unit, but they cant stop the run.. and when u cant stop the run..u cant stop the pass as Ive said before. Stopping the run forces the opposition to be one dimensional and allows you to narrow down the things u need to do.

It aint gonna be easy, but the longer we are on the field and keep our defense fresh, the better chance we'll have.

Good point but...

This is the Steelers and the Colts you are talking about, right? The one team in the Colts/Bengles shoot-out yesterday only scored 13 points in week 7 against the Steelers. So, hum ha, you never know. Colts against the Steelers defense, it isn't going to be so simple like that. Us Steelers fans can tell you one thing for sure, there wil be no shoot-out with Tommy under the gun.

New to the board, but thought I might add my 2 cents to this thread.

Manning is going to test the Steelers secondary EARLY and OFTEN. Plain and simple.

Look at the first series we had against the Bengals. He literally threw to 5 different receivers to "test the waters" right off the bat.

Manning will be looking for any glaring weaknesses/mismatches and exploit them like a methodical mad scientist in order to try to gain an early lead and force the Steelers to abandon the run.

If the Steelers can manage to pressure Manning (which isn't the easiest thing to do, but can be done) and force him to make most of his throws off balance, then this could turn into a smashmouth ground game.

I actually prefer those kind of games, believe it or not.

If it does indeed turn into a ground game then look for Manning to try to tire the Steeler's D with the no-huddle. He will keep them on the field and NOT allow them to substitute any players while he is on the field. He is very quick to call the "quick snap" if he catches the other team with 12 men on the field if you haven't noticed. I'll admit that it is a very sneaky tactic, but its scary to see in action when you are the opposing team.

Thats the key that you mentioned is to pressure Peyton..the teams that have beaten or atleast given them a run for their money..have managed to put pressure on him, knock him down, hurry him, bat some passes and just generally frustrate him. IF we can do that it will greatly help our chances.. If we dont pressure manning, it could be a REAL long day.

The no huddle is brutal on even the fastest defenses, no doubt!
