    Steelers vs Pats game day - week 1

    OK, here we go again....will we start slow and look rusty, or will we look better then we have in the past......I'm still not convinced we addressed the defense CB issues....
    We have to Blitz, cover man to man most of the time or I will be disgusted....we should be able to move the ball around passing .......
    We have to prove the pass to run.....go Steelers!!!!!

    I see a big day for Jimmy Conner. We should run out of 3 and 4WR sets.

    Getting pressure with 3-4 is going to be the key on D and I think Cam, Tuitt, Hargrave, Watt, and Bud are up for the challenge. I see all 5 guys getting 2+ QB hits today. NE’s line is in shambles.

    I share the concern about the corners. Not sold on Nelson. Donít like the idea of a lot of blitzing, particularly secondary guys. I trust the Dline and Olbers will be able to get the job done.

    Our best personnel grouping should be 11 personnel with Conner, Vance, Juju, Moncrief, and Washington. Also I am curious to see the multiple ways we could possibly use Jaylen Samuels out there as well.

    I don't think we should use any all out fire blitzes, but there will be occasions when they drop Watt and Bud in coverage and try to get in Brady's face bringing pressure up the middle with Vince and/or Bush, trying to take advantage of the new center Karras (although he's been in NE for several years, I believe he has only 4-5 starts under his belt, and I think only 2 of them have been at center).
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    the Cheaters* went after Nelson hard when they played the Chifs last season, I expect them to do so again.

    Like i previously stated in a different post, look for Brady to expose Williams when he is on the field.

    On offense i'd love to see us come out with both Conner and Samuels in the backfield, no TE's and 3 wide
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.
