    Well these are the games that keep Ben from being elite. even with 2 SB wins..

    Pats, Saints, Packers now.. Colts, Ravens a bit...

    He just needs to dial up 110+ qb ratings against these teams.

    no, timmons is what needs to cover gronk....sly is a grown *** man against the run but his coverage skills would get torn to shreds against these TEs

    Has to be grind it out, in your face coverage for the whole game. Pats targets (WR, RB, TE's) have to earn each catch, each 1st down. No freebies here.

    We need to see what Sly has got, we can't really make judgements on a few pre-season plays. Timmons has the skills we know, but he'll be outside again. We simply won't stop the pats with Potsie n Foote in the middle, not gonna happen, Sly please.

    Me either. Or Ike trying to tie Welker's shoelaces.
    LeBeau is bound to come up with a decent plan to slow them down.
    Right?

    Well, I'm using this game as a borometer of weather Labeau still has it or not as a coordinator. Labeau knows about the passing game of the Patriots from the previous beatdown we took last year. He better have something radical up his sleeve to slow down the Pats passing game.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I don't think you can really use this game as a barometer for how Lebeau is as a coordinator, atleast IMO. He believes in his system and it's served him well over the decades. The Steelers aren't a top 5 defense every year for nothing. Everybody has their achilles heal and for Lebeau, it's been Brady and those damn tight ends.

    finally adjusting to this offense that has destroyed his defense has to become a big deal eventually
