I'm just glad Tomlin isn't being stubborn and he's saying every scenario is a possibility, i would luv to see us run the 4-3 and let Hood, Hamp,Cam and Kiesel rush that bum Flacco i wouldn't mind the 4-2 with 5 DB's also Cortez Allen is gonna be a beast for us, man i'm hyped i can't wait till Sunday night I really think we blow the rats out we owe them
they are so used to our base defense that this is going to a nightmare to prepare 4....a 4 man line with no true DEs, basically letting 4 DTs just bull rush on every play
This will give them more to prepare for, there is no doubt. However they've played 43 defenses before so it's not like it will be completely strange to them or anything. Although seeing it out of the Steelers will probably be a shock to them. Any way to get an advantage over someone is always a plus. Even if we end up not having to use the 43 or 42 very much the fact that we could use it is already a plus.
playing a 43 and playing a 43 that uses 4 DTs is completely different.
basically i see our 4 best bull rushers on the field and they send one LB, or gay or troy, or even ike periodically...really lebeau could have a field day with this since no one knows wtf is going on
Maybe watch a little Jaquar film and see how that played out..
I agree with you Ktrain....Just look at the Ravens with their 3 man DL with Ngata and Cody......Those two are DT's.....So four DT's would be interesting for an OL to deal with....Like you said Keisel will be an elephant LB at times.....Just stop the run and you beat the Ravens....Flacco can't put a team on his back and win a game....Of course the Ravens D will keep them in it but the Steelers offense must step up and put 20-25 points on the board if not more.....No more injuries please this week...lol
If the Steelers offense scores 25 points, we win this game.
For the defense, the more I think about the possibility of Hampton, McLendon/Hoke, Hood, and Heyward could be to deal with for sure. Putting that line up would make it awfully tough for Rice to run through especially if you mix in that defense with some 34 and dime, they won't know what's coming next. If this works out, it could be something that they run on a more regular basis. Not completely switching to a 43 but hey if you have the personnel to do it, it's always good to have it in your arsenal.
