Don't risk kicking to Josh Cribbs
Tomlin made what is probably the best line I've heard from a Steelers coach in a long time. In his press conference today he said, in reference to the Browns game this Thursday:
"We won't want to be dead indians in the Josh Cribbs cowboy movie again" :coffeecough:
That being said, the Browns single biggest weapon is beyond a doubt, Cribbs. He's stuck it to our team many times especially in the return game. Even though the Steelers punt and kickoff coverage teams are playing very well this year, I don't see a situation where you tell Jeremy Kapinos to punt it anywhere near Cribbs. Even trying to pin him in the coffin corner is not guaranteed strategy.
You don't want to take a chance with these guys because we know special teams can be the difference between winning and losing.
