    Banged up secondary catches a break against Broncos offense

    The Steelers secondary could look different by the time they take the field on Sunday in Denver. Ryan Mundy could be playing for Ryan Clark, and Anthony Madison could be playing for Keenan Lewis.

    Fortunately they are playing a Denver offense that doesn't exactly light up the yardage stats in the passing dept. Tebow went just 6-22 for 60 yds in that 7-3 loss to the Chiefs. They've lost 4 straight as well.

    If guys like Lewis and Clark can't play, it could affect Troy Polamalu as well. Perhaps he doesn't free lance quite as much, perhaps he doesn't hover near the line of scrimmage like he usually does. Ryan Mundy is a capable backup and has played opposite Troy before, but the chemistry that Clark and Polamalu have is pretty unique. They know what each other is doing and have a knack for covering all the bases when the other takes a chance to play the ball or go in run support. Maybe Dick Lebeau dials back some of the Safety pressure to give Madison and Mundy some help.

    If there was a week for that happen, it's this week. Better to do it against Denver than say New England.

    The Steelers lost two cornerbacks to injuries in Cleveland, Keenan Lewis with a hamstring and rookie Cortez Allen to a separated shoulder. They will decide soon whether Clark will risk playing in the high altitude in Denver, where his sickle cell trait caused a violent reaction in 2007 that required emergency surgery and nearly killed him. He lost his spleen and gall bladder from the reaction caused by exertion in the mile-high altitude.

    Clark definitely out. Good decision to keep him healthy for next round.
    We need to pressure Tebow, not let him look good ast all. Need to step up against the run. Any word on Woodley?

    Steelers should still have no problem with the Broncos offense even with Clark out. Harrison,Woodley and Troy will all be a factor and they will force and pretty much dare Tim Tebow to beat them throwing the ball which I just dont see him being able to do...

    If we play 15 yards off the WR's any QB can hit their man...

    Tebow hits his target. he is not Seneca Wallace.

    He may be a rookie but he has more tools than the browns QB's

    It was 13 - 9 in Cleveland.

    We need an offense in the playoffs...

    I think Tebow is in his second year. Press coverage on the WRs and Tebow doesn't throw the ball. No way LeBeau has them play 15yds off. Put Ike on Decker and 8 or 9 in the box to stop the run.

    I agree we need a more effective offense in the playoffs for sure.

    I have been right-handed since birth. I threw a football once left-handed to see if I could do it and the result looked like Tebow's spiral.
