    Corners

    These corners are a joke taylor play is sad, next year in the draft in the first 4 rounds i want 3 corners drafted and 1 safety. I cut taylor or just release him and eat the contract. I tell the 3 corners i draft the best 2 of you after the preseason are the starters, i mean can they be any worse than these jokers britt looked like megatron if he would have not dropped everything. any thoughts??

    You're right! Hasselbeck tore them up for 350 yards and 3 TDs...

    Uh...wait a minute...

    Absolutely! CB's are a most critical position. I do not give up on Ike however, he plays until he can't walk for me, but I can see how drafting another crop could help.

    However, that does nothing for this season which is just starting. Are there any options to improve things now. Anything on the Practice Squad? Are none of the other CB's on the roster not even good enough to at least spell #23?

    Going to be very hard to win these close type games that come down to the wire without an improvement back there.

    A CB wasn't assigned to cover that TE on the crossing route...

    was that really James Harrison assigned to cover that TE on the crossing route, shouldn't Harrison be rushing the QB instead?

    What you have described is a smart offensive scheme. Its a numbers game and a smart OC will spread the Steelers out to get them out of their base 3-4 defense. They make Lebeau get out of base and go Nickel. If there is a wr in the slot (spread), then Harrsions duties change from rushing to pass defense.

    Now lets say Harrison disregarded his duties and rushed instead of playing the slot. What happens? The Qb hits the slot all day as Harrison rushes. If Harrison doesnt rush and honors the slot then it gives the quarterback more time to pass. Again, smart offensive scheme. This scheme was exposed under Cowher/Lebeau when Gannon was the qb at Oakland. They passed like 40 straight times on us (Porter was in Harrisons spot)

    it is a smart offensive scheme because LeBeau has become predictable in how he responds to certain offensive formations. obviously, there has to be a better way to defend that particular play because no way should Harrison be expected to cover that TE running across the field.

    Ike has been terrible

    However, I want Allen and Lewis to play more man coverage. I don't want a cushion either. Line these bigger CBs up right in front of the WRs. If they get beat, so be it.

    Having these bigger guys give up a 10-15 yard cushion is stupid IMO. That is essentially eliminating their best attribute. Size.
