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

I hear ya, but its still a problem. You have to be able to beat those teams. We can't lose to all those teams, beat all the "weaker" teams, then expect to be crowned SB champs.

No question it is a problem and explains why the Steelers have never gone through Brady's New England in the playoffs to get to the Super Bowl - New England has the Steelers number, just as the Chargers always beat the Colts and the Steelers beat Baltimore when Roethlisberger plays

But there are maybe 4 QBs today who can pull that type of offense off against the Steelers (P. Manning, Brady, Brees and Rodgers) - you are never going to need to go through both Rodgers and Brees in the playoffs since they are in the NFC and have to always hope a team that matches up better with New England (Jets/Ravens) takes the Pats out before the Steelers need to play them

But although it looked like it might be a blowout, it is not as if Green Bay was an irresistible force in Dallas that the Steelers might not beat 50% of the time on a neutral field and teh Steelers were in the Saints game in New Orleans - Brady is the one QB they simply cannot beat

Yeah, I agree. They cannot beat Brady.

I'm not worried about Manning, Brees or Rodgers although all three are dangerous they are not impossible to beat like you've already stated.

Our 3-4 has always been vulnerable with elite QB's running the spread.


Remember when Brady and Gannon came out and threw 55 times like 10 years ago? Kirwan isn't onto something new; he's rehashing what everyone else is saying, and has been saying for a decade. We've been to a Super Bowl, 5 AFC Championships, and have 2 rings in that span. I think we'll be just fine.

I haven't really heard anything yet about how the Green Bay Packers totally demolished the Steelers in XLV. ? -thats becuase they didn't. The Pack played very safe and strong -WE DID NOT (Ben made made 2 uber-mistakes -End of game).
Ben, and the "O" did it for them, 2 Int's and a sad strip from Mendy cost us -21 points. -can't crawl outta that -but yes, this has already been discussed to death.

So I don't see the Pack as any template on how to beat Steelers. -we obviously are not that easy to beat.
The only time this last year that the Steelers were EVER soundly beaten was by Brady.-and all the teams wanna copy the Pats.-not really the Packers.
