Default Colts Gameplan??

What do you guys think the Steelers need to do to shut down the Colt's offense. Personally, I think we need to play a lot more physically than what we did against the Bengals. Our corners need to get up on the line and jam the receivers everytime to disrupt their timing. Like what we did in the second half against Johnson. We need to have way more pressure on Manning than what we were managing on Kitna. We need to come out playing like this from the beginning, not like we did in the first half of the Bengals and Lions games, or we will be playing catch up from so far away we'll be wishing it was only the 10 point spread they are predicting. I think if we can disrupt their timing with jamming the receivers we are going to get some key turnovers and the W secures itself in our recordbook.

After the initial shock wore off, there was a point in that first match-up where the Steelers had Peyton confused and the defense was playing well...this was evident when Manning threw the ball right to Troy P.

I don't think we need to dramatically change our defense, but the intensity needs to stay high, and the D needs to bend not break and not give up any cheap big plays. The Colts are going to get their points, but we need to run the football and keep that O off the field.

Your smash mouth style worked wonders for you last time. You should definitely come in with that same gameplan.

Jamming the receivers and turnovers will not win you this game. Ben will need to throw 15-20 times and get over 200 yards in order for you to even attempt to establish your running game. Your defense can try to disrupt Manning, but in doing so, you'll lose to our run and/or short passing game.

Should be a good game, but I also thought the last game should have been close. Good luck and I look forward to a good week of discussions.

I say we just do what the Chargers did. Change up the pass rush so it's not so predictable and get to Payton. If we don't, we're screwed, plain and simple.

Our pass rush and blitzes are very predictable recently. Our losses to Indy, NE and Cinci showed that.

And when anyone puts 8 guys in the box and we can't run, we're screwed too. So he's right, Ben needs to establish the throw as a threat, especially short throws that pull the LBs out of the box.

I think the key will be, no matter what the gameplan, to actually EXECUTE it this time around...I also think the offense will be better equipped to handle the crowd noise, miked up or not.

I think the Steelers should try some more of the two man rush and drop every one else into coverage when situation on obvious passing downs presents itself.
It had Kitna a little confused the few times it was used maybe the Steelers pass coverage can catch a break on a Manning mistake.

Most teams were trying something similar at the begining of the season against the Colts, they will just give the ball to Edge. It's the gameplan that the Pats used to run against the Colts, but now they have seen it quite a bit and know how to play against it. The Steelers are going to need to mix up their coverages and while I know the Steeler thrive on the blitz, they may want to back off the bltzing and try to get pressure with their front seven. Peyton has a lot of success against the blitz.

I agree with mixing up the coverage. Teams seem to pick up our blitz pretty well lately. I think we have to mix it up.

Keys to victory:
1. Establish the run better than any game this year.
2. No interceptions.
3. Make big plays on defense.
4. Confuse colts offense.
5. Apply pressure

We definitely have to mix it up in keeping that same balance between the passing and running game. I believe the defense will also come up with a big play or two.
