Spread out the Steelers on offense - gee I never heard that might be the way to attack the defense until Pat Kirwan brought it up except for every pre-game analysis of the Green Bay-Pittsburgh matchup

Three teams made that plan work this season - Saints, Pats, and Green Bay

So all you need is a Super Bowl MVP at QB for your team to make that plan go - plenty of those to go around

Yea, this is such a new concept, we got our brains beat in by
the Pats in Raiders weeks 1 and 2 in 2002 by them throwing
all day long (but we had much worse CBs - Chad Toast and
Doooowayyyne Suckington). Thankfully, not every team has
a good enough passing attack to take advantage of throwing
the ball every down vs. this D or we'd be a losing team.

Does this mean Ben will throw two picks and Mendy will fumble every game as part of the opponents game plan? That is the reason we lost that game. Sure spreading us out is effective, but we have an offense as well that usually does not make those kinds of mistakes.

That was my thought. I don't see how what the Packers did gives teams a gameplan to guarantee victory against us...although 3 turnovers would make it pretty automatic.

First off, there's very few Tom Brady's or Aaron Rodgers in the league so I doubt the copycat aspect is going to derail our season next year. Also I would hope that the Steelers will draft a legitimate cover corner with this years first round pick, and resign Ike. Having two quality corners will aloow Troy to be Troy, and I wouldn't mind adding another good safety to the mix. Anyone know the contract status of Chris Hope? I wouldn't mind seeing him back in the black and gold.

They didn't burn our D as much as they did Gay and McFadden(who was hurt BTW). Troy didn't play well and Ike was beaten on a perfect throw. If we can pick up an upgrade fro McFadden, keep Gay in the Nickel, we will be set!

Well, most NFL teams do not have the personnel that the Packers have. Only a handful of teams possess the personnel and we play 1 or 2 of those teams per NFL season. I would anticipate our style of play will not change but we'll look to upgrade our team. I, like most Steelers fans want the secondary issues addressed in the off-season. I'm not placing all of the blame on Tomlin but wasn't Tomlin a DB Coach before he became a Def. Coordinator? I'm sorry, but I would rather not get to the Super Bowl unless we can dominate it from start to finish. Fix the O-line, clean-up the secondary, clean up the unnecessary penalties, etc.

Ed. B of the P-G has this reponse to the Kirwan article

We could file this under old news because the Patriots actually showed everyone how to do it at mid-season. Of course, you have to have a quarterback as accurate and quick with his release as Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers to pull it off.
