Default Blitz!

Personal opinion here:

With the way that Aaron Rodgers was torching us, wouldn't it have been smart to bring an all out blitz once in a while? I know that we were blitzing, but with our secondary, we need to be bringing down the quarterback as much as possible. This is why i feel that we should be bringing even more blitzes.

1 sack against the worst pass protecting team in the NFL is unacceptable.

We NEED to be in Flacco's face all day Sunday, and even moreso we need to bring him down.

Amen brother. We blitzed the first couple drives of the GB game and got great pressure. Should have kept it up. If we are going to get torched for 80 yards when it's 3rd and 5, why sit back...may as well force the issue with a major blitz and not give that guy that much time to get down field.

It's a double edged sword. More guys blitzing could have caused a turn over or sack but it could have also caused the long bomb/TD/FG that would have suck our battle ship. I trust that Dick knows what he's doing far better than I and stand by his decisions as DC.

Just remember.....You can't blitz more without covering less. But then again, Sticky Dick LeBeau is the master of the zone blitz so disguising blitz/coverage packages is his specialty. I do think you'll see the Steelers bring the house against the Ravens more than they did against the Pack. The Ravens have a better run game than the Packers so it will be easier to sneak more men up in the box.

I definitely trust LeBeau's decision making, even if his game plan is limited because of the available personnel. I'm looking for Flacco to be staring at the sky at least four times this Sunday.

I gotta go with kvnfaber on this one. Our secondary isn't doing anything anyway. May as well blitz them.

I have faith in Papa Lebeau, I just want to see Flacco on his back! The less time he has to throw the less chance they have to get open!

Even if we don't get the sacks but keep Flacco from getting into a groove. Knock his ass around some.

What was very surprising with that game was that we started off the game using our inside linebackers doing the crossing blitz that we saw quite a bit last year out of Farrior and Foote and then later in the game we saw very little of that. The first two possessions that GB had the ball we kept putting Rogers on the deck, I would have at least like to have seen that happen a little in the 4th qtr.
