    Steeler/Raven Key Matchups

    Generally speaking how do you see them lining up?

    Rice receiving out of the backfield vs Farrior?
    Heep vs Timmons/Woodley/Silverback?
    Housh vs Gay?
    Boldin vs BMAC & possibly a 20 yard cushion given the hamstring
    Mason vs Ike?

    Who is Troy going to shadow?

    Thoughts?

    Rice vs. Farrior? Hell no. Taunto will get burned for another 150+ yards. I'd rather have Timmons lined up with the most dangerous threat on their offense.

    I would prefer to see Ike on Boldin and BMAC on Mason.

    Timmons on Rice is a good matchup; he has the speed and range to stay with him along with the power to tackle.

    Farrior can go with Heap.

    Gay on Housh is fine by me, but I would just blitz him on every down.

    I'd leave Clark to help out Farrior or Gay and Polamalu to roam.

    Since there are no speedsters on Baltimore, play press coverage (4 yard cushion ) on the outside, match up Timmons and Rice, Farrior and Heap, but most importantly, the Steelers need a strong push up the middle so Flacco can't step up and avoid the rush or scramble away from danger. I would expect a lot of 3 WR looks to minimize the rushing of Woody and Harrison.

    Steelers must do a better job defending the screen game. If they think Buffalo did it well, they ain't seen nothing yet.

    I wonder if they use Donte as their Speed guy? Any friendly fire Ravens fans here?

    Just hope Farrior takes better angles then in the past.

    True, but Ed is on a knee after every other play, Ben isn't. I like Bens chances vs Reed...
