Bring it, don't sing it. We'll see how things pan out, but I would have been using more man concepts all trough the season to prepare to use it against the good teams - not break it out now that you are playing a better team. If you don't use it often, how are you to know what you have with it? Honestly, now that some of the more prominent QB's have fallen, I doubt that Tomlin and Co. make the shift and they will be ill-prepared to match up against Brady - again!

I will be interested to see if Allen is not activated vs NE. He has the size to cover Gronk.

Be nice to see if Sutton and or Allen can enter the mix on defense.

Stafford completed 85% of his passes against cover 2/3 which the D was in 80% of the time. Completely ineffective. Zone blitz and pattern worked. Time to try something different.

I don't get the whole, we're doing man coverage in practice thing, so we'll be fine.

I don't believe for a second that the secondary is going to be able to just flip a switch and go man against the Pats if they have not had sufficient in-game experience doing it.

Key to it not working vs Detroit or NE last year is pass rush sucked. I think second problem is that Mitchell and Golden and Gay suck in man, so you have to hope newer guys are going to get integrated more so that you have the right bodies on the field.

^^THIS^^ when Gay is on the field they know he is playing a zone.

This was the whole excuse for not implementing it last year, is that they hadn't used it all season. You'd have to think they'd test it out at some point before the playoffs. But, "we do what we do"... :roll:

Don't want to put too much on tape... :roll:

Saw where the Steelers run zone coverages more than 80% of the time. That’s way higher than most teams.

The reason of course is this

Well, the next 5 games are against the #23, 27, 21, 28, and 31st ranked passing offenses in the NFL. If they're going to test out new wrinkles in pass coverage, now would be an ideal time.
