Default Steelers might make it a tight spot for Packers

Steelers might make it a tight spot for Packers
What the Pittsburgh offense needs to do against Green Bay in the Super Bowl.
http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-...20,print.story
By Sam Farmer

What the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense must do to be successful against the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl (Feb. 6, 3:30 p.m. PST, Ch. 11):

Keep it down


The Steelers are going to try to run, just as they did so effectively against the New York Jets. In that game, they frequently ran out of multiple-tight-end formations. The more tight ends you have on the line of scrimmage, the more gaps you've added for a defense to contain. That tends to calm an aggressive, risk-taking defense such as Green Bay's.

If the Packers are poised to stop the run in a 3-4 formation as opposed to bracing for the pass with a 2-4-5 the Steelers will look to throw. Watch for Pittsburgh to get the favorable matchup of tight end Heath Miller covered by Green Bay linebacker A.J. Hawk.

They like Mike


Watch for the Steelers to throw a deep pass to receiver Mike Wallace early in the game, just as they did on their first play from scrimmage when they played the Packers in 2009. Last Sunday, Wallace ran right past New York cornerback Darrelle Revis and might have scored had the ball not been underthrown by roughly 10 yards.

Big game from big men

Pittsburgh needs an outstanding performance from its offensive line, especially because the best player in that group won't be available. Rookie center Maurkice Pouncey, whom offensive coordinator Bruce Arians called "a freak" because of how well he has played, is unlikely to play because of a high ankle sprain. Doug Legursky probably will start in his place, the latest in a long string of offensive line reshuffles this season.

Let Ben roll


The Packers know that the Steelers are at their most dangerous when Ben Roethlisberger extends a play, rolls out and finds a wide-open receiver down the field. Pittsburgh wants to protect against Green Bay attacking him, particularly from the right side. Roethlisberger is in a much better position to throw if he's rolling right.

I think the Steelers will play the game simular to the Jets game. If the running game goes well.

Jets game was about 9 degrees

This game will be 65 and indoors.....

I think a lot of balls will be flying in Big D......

If the Packers can match the Jets' coverage ability without sacrificing their run D, I don't think I could have a legitimate complaint about losing to that.

Ben has always been better rolling to the right side. This might have a dual effect on the packers, The packers will try to have Matthews get a lot of pressure on Ben. If Matthews presses inside, Let Ben roll to the right. If Matthews presses straight up to seal the end. then Ben will have time in the pocket, either way, the Steelers can slow down Matthews by a step, that may be the difference in the game.

The cold makes an impact on how the ball is thrown. Cold weather causes the ball to to not go as far and "land short " of its destination due to the thicker atmosphere -hence the under thrown ball to Wallace and the 2nd pic (that was Ben's fault) that was short to Sanders. That's also the reason why kickers don't attempt long FG's in very cold games. Ben should have a good day in the climate controlled stadium in dallas.

You maybe right, i dont think Steelers ran the ball against the jets because it was cold, it was more managing the clock, keepin their offense off the feild.
