Default How will the Steelers give up a Non Offensive TD this week

It's been 8 games in a row. This is becoming a staple in the Steelers strategy. What is your prediction? Will Ed Reed take the opening Coin Flip and return it for a touchdown? Will there be a Pick 6? Will the ST give up another return for TD?

Let's hear your guesses

I think the message has been delivered loud and clear.

I foresee one of the most dominating performances of the year....somewhere in the likes of a 38-10 win.

I would guess a fumble return for a TD.... But the Steelers still win 30-17.

I see this being a close game, why do people always pick blowouts, the Ravens need this win more than us.

I also hope for a blowout lol.

I also hope for Ryan Clark to annually jack someone up lol

Is 13 points really a blowout? Or wasn't your post directed at me?

Jeff Reed finally hangs a kick-off in mid-air longer than Big Ben holds onto the ball, however it gives the rats enough time to set up coverage. Since Reed is the last line of defense and does a "Baltimore special needs two-step" as the KR fakes him out so badly that Jerry Lewis calls immediately after the extra point and offers to have Reed on his next telethon.

Well we're out of the playoffs currently with Denver winning, so we better dominate.

Ravens hope to hurt Steelers on kickoffs
Pittsburgh has allowed league-high four kickoff return touchdowns
http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/r...97,print.story

If the reigning Super Bowl champions Pittsburgh Steelers have an Achilles' heel, it may center on their poor kickoff coverage.

The Steelers have allowed a league-high four kickoff return touchdowns in five games this season, including the last two contests.

Pittsburgh's sudden vulnerability sounds enticing to a Ravens squad that ranks eighth in the NFL in average start on kickoffs (28.2-yard line).

"We look to break a kick every week," said rookie Lardarius Webb, who returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown against the Denver Broncos on Nov. 1. "It doesn't matter if they haven't had a kick broke on them ever or if they've had two or three. It's no different for us. We look at the game the same way, and we try to attack them in all phases of the game. We know that they have let some kicks go back, but that's the part they're going to tighten up. So we're going to keep on attacking people the same way and keep studying them the same way."

Production from the kickoff return unit could translate into short fields for the offense and potential points, which are at a premium against the Steelers defense that ranks first in the NFL in yards allowed and eighth in points.

"Oh yeah, we've got to," said fullback Le'Ron McClain of attacking the Pittsburgh coverage unit. "We plan on doing that every week. Our goal is to go in and make a difference on special teams and in the return game especially."

Until now, the only previous season the Steelers surrendered as many as three kickoff return touchdowns was 1986. The troubles have forced the team to cut three players and sign two, including former Raven Corey Ivy.

"We've missed some tackles," Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. "We've got to exhibit the passion that's required to play that, and maybe we've lacked a little bit in that regard. We've acquired some men that I think will bring some passion to it, and we've got to be a little bit better schematically. I think that when you've failed the way we've failed in that area, you've got to look at all aspects of it, which we are, and make an accounting of it."
