Default Young players catch eye of Steelers' Tomlin

Young players catch eye of Steelers' Tomlin
By Ralph N. Paulk
Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has been impressed with the play of several young players including linebacker Chris Carter and cornerback Cortez Allen.

"We're getting good performances from guys who are putting their hands in the pile," Tomlin said. "At the very least, they are showing us they are competitive."

Allen and Carter each had two tackles Sunday against the New England Patriots.

>> While Tomlin was thrilled with his team's passing game, he pushed back against suggestions that the Steelers will rely more on the pass than the run in upcoming games.

"We're not going to drop back and throw the ball 50 times against the Baltimore Ravens because you're going to get sacked and intercepted," Tomlin said. "It's naive to think we'll take that formula to each and every stadium."

>> The Ravens struggled with Arizona, but that won't influence the Steelers' preparation for a team that beat them, 35-7, in the season opener.

"Not much has changed with that group," Tomlin said. "(Running back) Ray Rice hurt us in a variety of ways. We have to be better against him. In the passing game, (quarterback) Joe Flacco has done a nice job over the past several weeks. Their defense is playing great; not good. (Linebacker) Terrell Suggs is someone who has hurt us in the past, along with (nose tackle Haloti) Ngata."

Safety Ed Reed had two interceptions in the teams' first meeting.

>> Defensive lineman Brett Keisel will be part of an internet town hall meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. on Concert-oh.com. Keisel will participate in a live Q&A via web cam on the website. Registration is required.
