    Yeah.. they moved him around but its not like our DB’s couldn’t find him. They just couldn’t defend him because dude is big as hell.
    The could defend him to an extent. The couldn't defend the accurate passes that Burrow threw. Accurate passes are hard to defend.

    That is why accuracy is the most important "skill" of the best quarterbacks.




    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    TCFCLTC-
    The Coach Formerly Considered Less Than Cowher

    Yeah I get it. Brady didn't have the biggest arm. What Brady had was the ability to make quick decisions and get the ball to WR's accurately.

    Defenses clamp down on the short passes, Brady would make defenses pay with intermediate or long passes depending on the weapons he had. The same can be said for every great QB that played in the NFL.

    The best way to defeat great QB's is for a defense to work well together as a unit. Pressure combined with coverage nails makes it hard on any QB.

    It's easy to draw up the concepts on the blackboard. It's more difficult for the players to execute as ONE unit.

    Gee, I wonder what that would look like on the Steelers offense.
    If the Steelers had enough threats to do that, it would be evident...

    Jar Jar may be the perfect comp here.

    Let's think about this. The QB's that can make plays outside of the plays coaches call up or "scheme" seem to be the most lethal QB's in the NFL today.

    Those QB's make plays off script. KP has the ability to make plays off script.

    NFL defenses are generally good across the board, athletically speaking. Why do I believe this? The athletes on defense are getting better from the Dline to the LBs to the 2ndary. Sub packages play a huge role on both sides of the ball.

    Offenses or defenses can only line up into a limited amount of formations or coverages. One place where coaching comes into play is to "guess" right vs a certain formation or personnel package. Even if coaches guess right based on familiarity or hours of film study, and point this out to players, players need to execute based on what was taught to them by coaches.

    Defenses are quicker... that's true... I contend that defenses (the Steelers D especially....) are significantly deficient in the tackling department... To quote a pretty good coach, "What the hell is going on here?? All we're doin' is grabbin'.... grab, grab, grab...."

    Tomlin's response stirred up some controversy among fans;

    I mean, if CIN's plays were predictable how come the Steelers defense struggled to stop them??

    His answer was so predictable, like his offense. He's untouchable in that town, would doubt if both he and Canada are extended after the season.
