Default Warner / Fitz Media Hype

If the Steelers were to buy into all the hype on ESPN and NFL Network concerning Kurt and Fitz, they would probably just stay in town Super Bowl Sunday and send Goddall an e-mail stating thier intent to forfeit the game. Kurt who can stand in the path of a panzer attack and throw up jump balls anywhere where on the field knowing that his superhuman reciever will leap across all obstacles and grab, which when in the air is only his, the ball and without doubt score. The Cards 9-7 regular season doesn't matter this team is hot and this qb receiver combo is with out a doubt the very best. The Steelers played solid defense this year although they are vulnerable in coverage. Let me provide you with some quick stats from other red-hot passing attacks that have faced this vulnerable Steeler pass defense. Stats provided are from the opponents 2 previous games and the game with Pittsburgh.

Philadelphia

21/33 361yds 3 tds 0 ints 38 pts
25/37 281yds 1 td 0 ints 37pts
24/35 196yds 1td 1ints 15pts

San Deigo

25/40 341yds 3tds 1ints 32pts
27/36 316yds 2tds 2ints 20pts
15/26 164yds 0tds 2ints 10pts

Dallas

22/39 341yds 3tds 0ints 35pts
22/34 331yds 3tds 1ints 34pts
19/36 210yds 1td 3ints 13pts

New England

30/51 400yds 3tds 0ints 31pts
30/43 415yds 3tds 1ints 48pts
19/39 169yds 0tds 2ints 10pts

As in any endeavor there could be a loss but past performance is indicative of a future success.

Yeah, but we haven't faced the best passing attack in the history of the known un-ee-verse yet.

People are acting like this is the first good receiver we've faced all year. How'd Randy Moss do against us again?

Listen, Fitzgerald is going to be tough to cover, but short of him having 5 TD catches or something, there's a lot more to the game than that.

Pressure? I'd rather play cover... Send minimal blitz's (of course Disguised). Just use our D-Line and maybe another guy to give pocket pressure, but keep warner in, attempted to collapse it with the minimal rush - but just play cover. Take the big plays away and make them work for their yardage

I think it's a mistake to call it the Card's duo, should be the Card's TRIO. Breaston is a speedy slasher, and should be accounted for - but maybe the fear of Ryan Clark will be enough to slow his roll

I love me some Fitz. Classy guy, great receiver, and an easy media darling. Arizona is very warm and fuzzy. But...

The Steelers secondary has faced nearly every top name, top ranked receiver in the NFL, as well as QB's with the most yards and varied styles. They faced 5 of the top ten QBs and beat 4 of them. Only Peyton won against Pittsburgh and everyone that watched that game (sorry Ben), knows it wasnt the because of the Steelers defense.

I think the story should be... the Cardinals wondering if they can pass on the Steelers, not the other way around.
