Remember when our D could stuff the run like that...when it could rush the passer like that?

It is truly a beautiful thing to watch.

They are making Rodgers look like Laundry Jones.

At this point, that is an insult to both teams, unfortunately.

PS ILBs are much much better. GB has better CBs and pass rushers. Their dline is terrible.

They were getting cut up in he middle, in the 1st, like a c-section.

It was making me question the Bell pick, until my buddy pointed out shelf life.

Run it down the middle, & go PAP,

It's a weakness...Run D might be the only weakness on that team. Gotta do it between the tackles too. Even if GB loses this game, I think they set the blueprint on how to beat them.

Gut runs & take advantage of 3rd & 1-2.
It's p
pendulum swinging back to power.

ETA- I realize Carroll is doing this already, it's catching up quick enough that matte's

The speed and intensity on the Seahawks defense is a thing of beauty to watch.

I think Steeler fans should also take note of the genuine intensity and noise level of the crowd .... not artificially inflated by loud Styx music and past performances cast upon the jumbo tron.

Heinz field is a joke for crowd noise.

Seattle fans are rabid to be sure but that stadium was built right with acoustics a very high priority.

As good as they are they aren't the be all end all. They still make mistakes and get gassed like everyone else. Sherman has elevated his status to elite "Shut Down" corner I see. Not thrown at all game. Seahags are still beatable. May take a slough of injuries but it will be done.

Notice Rogers kept the seahag defense from subsituting? Kept the same tired gassed DLine on the field in the last part of the 3rd and all the 4th quarters with the no huddle? Notice how their pass rush fell off?

I'm not ripping on the OP as much as I'm saying this is the NFL where anything can and usually does happen. I remember a Steelers defense that was very stout and I was very proud of it too. They were not without their weaknesses and wort's. Neither are the hags.

I also noticed Rodgers didn't run the clock down to 1 second every time before snapping it, either.

Not allowing the defense to jump the snap...what a concept!

I think you are missing something.

To me, the beauty of Seattle's D - their coverage ability. I thought Rodgers had time to throw the foobal last night - but nobody is open - nobody. The Steelers always put focus on rushing the passer and utilizing their LB's to do this - those days are over folks. These QB's can get the ball out faster than ever.

Coverage is the key and Seattle is loaded with Coverage defenders.

No, its artificially inflated by the entire design of the stadium.

IC, is Kodiak's comment not valid? I've often wondered why the offense ran the play clock down to the last second in recent years. Is this more about the OC not getting the call in quickly or the the QB/center reading defensive alignment?

Actually, that's one area that we can credit Haley with improving. He cut down the language of playcalling so that Ben had control of the clock at the LOS.

Probably lost on most of his critics, but it was literally the first thing he collaborated with Ben on when he got to town.

I guess its valid to a point.

Its not like they use the time because they can't decide what play or peronnel to use. Most OC's know 3 plays in advance what the call is any situation. Its why only a handful of people in the league are allowed to call plays.

On the broadcast they said GB plan was to go fast and furious to keep big men on the field to tire them out. So lighter pass rush guys couldn't get in the game. Its a good plan if it works, its not if it doesn't.

My opinion is Steelers run down clock for a couple reasons. #1 being Ben changes plays at LOS. Doesn't need opposing coaches barking in headset at what they see. Helmet radios go off at 0:15 on play clock. Usually when they break the huddle so coaches can't read formations either and relay info in either.

Also, Steelers aren't a cover 2 wave team. Its not a farce that T.O.P means something to a team like that. 34 is based off of element and illusion of surprise. Its not a defense that will be successful when on the field for 37 minutes. Especially for an offense that can't score quickly. Wouldn't be so bad if they built leads, but they don't really seem capable.

Its just a plan. Right, wrong, or indifferent. It's a coaches vision for how everthing works in accordance and complements everything else. It doesn't make any coach wrong if it doesn't work. His plan is his vision. He may not execute his plan well, but it doesn't mean his plan is wrong. He's on the sideline. He knows the pulse of his team. He knows what they are physically and mentally capable of.

I was hammered last night, but I do recall Rodgers being off. One hopped several balls & that 3rd down pass where he was over the line...he was also at the 1st down sticks.

Some bone headed play for "the best QB in the league".
