There's no secret about the fact he is a statue and hates pressure even worse than Peyton. Let him make the short throws, and beat him to a pulp.

Hit him every single play - keep hitting him - and beat him to a pulp.

His receivers are worthless if he's on his back.

Good point here and I agree that keeping Kurt upright is THE key... As for him being a statue, here are sack totals for 2008:

Ben: sacked 46 times
Kurt: sacked 26 times

Kurt has only been sacked once in the post season...

Should be interesting...

Tomlin will have them ready to play. I'm confident that every Steelers player knows how dangerous the Cardinals can be. As for us overlooking the Cardinals, who cares if we do. We're not playing the game. I have supremem confidence that the Steelers can go into Tampa and whip a little Cardinal butt. Doesn't mean I don't respect them, I just think our team is better.

Kurt has a quick release and there is no denying it BUT he has not faced zone blitz style that the Steelers play. He will see a lot of Black & Gold in coverage and will have to throw in tight windows all day long. He also hasn't faced pass rushers like Harrison/Woodley either. Usually team only have one really good pass rusher but we are blessed to have one on each side....

The Cards played the softest schedule in history - you can't even compare the regular season - and the Cards lost to all the good teams, and were horrible on the road.

I say they got lucky in the playoffs.

Their luck just ran out.

Very true about having TWO premier pass rushers... This will be a HUGE challenge for the Cards...
Will we keep a back in the backfield to help protect? Throw in a TE perhaps - which we don't like doing??

The Cards have mastered the art of picking up the blitz in a pre-snap read. Kurt and the wideouts are totally in sync and have demonstrated this entire post season how great they are at exploiting the defense when they decide to bring 5, 6 or more rushers...
Jimmy Johnson was being touted as the greatest def. coordinator in the game, and for 3 quarters, we made him look like an amateur...

I have HUGE respect for your defense and Lebeau... This is the supreme test for the Cards...

Question for ya: should by some miracle the Cards go on to defeat the Steelers, where would that rank in terms of alltime Super Bowl upsets?

By whom, exactly? That title belongs to LeBeau, and it's not really all that close. Sorry, but statements like these are why I personally can't take you seriously.

#1 by a long shot - much bigger than Namath.

Bigger than Buster Douglas and the 1980 US Hockey Team.

It would be the biggest upset of all time, in any sporting event, political contest, or any other type of competition - in the history of man on Earth.
