Default Deshea Townsend knew what play was coming

Outcoached too. The smackdown is complete.


Deshea Townsend knew what play was coming




Pittsburgh cornerback Deshea Townsend's tongue-in-cheek take on the game's deciding play: "It was a great play call by them."

Townsend said he knew that the Cowboys would try to get the ball to Witten on a curl when they lined up in the trips formation. So did defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who made a play call with that specific route in mind.

"It was a route that they had been running all night," said Townsend, who picked off Tony Romo's pass and returned it 25 yards for a tie-breaking touchdown. "Coach LeBeau made a great call, and it worked out for us."

Townsend sarcastically complimented Romo for making a great throw. "Right at eye level," he said.

The Steelers definitely didn't want to hear any talk about Witten slipping while coming out of his break.

"Deshea just ran the route for the receiver," OLB James Harrison said.

Great call by two seasoned vets (Lebeau & Deshea). I was waiting for our D to score from early on in the game.

Heath Millers and Ben's fumbles in Dallas territory really screwed up our chances to score early.

Good thing the team turned off the field heaters to stiffen up the turf though - that was a good call, no mush.

Terry Bradshaw said before the game that it was going to be interesting to see how things work out in the game, because the matchup was a 50 year veteran Defensive Coordiantor for the Steelers vs. a 3 (or something like that I cant remembers exactly) year veteran Offensive Coordinator for Dallas.....

LeBeau obviously deserves huge credit.

The Dallas boards are ready to fire Garrett...calling for his head on the chopping block....pretty funny if you ask me, they wanted him for HC.

"JASON GARRETT QUIT

On that INT, when their O-line was lining up my buddy text messaged me and all it said was "INT for a TD". Soon as I set the phone down, Deshea catches the ball and off to the races. I asked him and he said he had a hunch.

Just have to say, Keep up the good work Coach LeBeau!

You gotta love Coach LeBeau. He knew what was coming, and won the game for us.

When I saw the title of this thread, I thought that Deshea had resorted to Bellicheck- style tactics
