When the Steelers Have the Ball

It’s been less than a year since the Patriots shut down Pittsburgh’s offense in a 36-17 AFC championship game rout, but don’t expect the same result this weekend. Ben Roethlisberger will have his entire arsenal of playmakers at his disposal in Heinz Field, and that creates a few crucial differences for Pittsburgh this time around.ObrazekWhen the Steelers http://www.rouzweb.com/wayne-gretzky-jersey-c-1_40.html lost Le’Veon Bell to a groin injury in the first quarter of January’s AFC title game, they were instantly cooked. Bell’s exit meant that the Patriots were able to http://www.yriddes.com/antonio-brown-jersey-c-1_2.html focus on Authentic James Van Riemsdyk Jersey Antonio Brown and not much else. Even for a receiver with superhuman talent like Brown, beating New England single-handedly is a tall Alejandro Villanueva Jersey Womens order.Bell’s presence won’t do much to alter how the Patriots game plan to stop Brown. Cornerback Malcolm Butler will likely spend most of the game checking Brown while a safety hovers over the top to his side. Some of Roethlisberger’s favorite throws come on timing routes to Brown outside the numbers that involve a vertical push (forcing a cornerback Max Pacioretty Authentic Jersey to respect the deep shot) and take advantage Antonio Brown Youth Jersey of space underneath, as Brown works back toward the ball. By sticking a http://www.nflbearsofficialshop.com/shop-by-players-walter-payton-jersey-c-2_121.html safety on that side of the field, the Pats allow Butler to make defending that comeback route his no. 1 priority, and he can slightly trail Brown while the safety takes away the throw over the top. The Steelers still aren’t afraid to try this move even when Brown is bracketed, but the throw below amounts to a dangerous gamble.The Patriots were free to shade a single-high safety to Brown’s side all game last January because they had no fear of what the Steelers’ other outside receivers could do. New England dared Roethlisberger to challenge the island corner matched up with the likes of Cobi Hamilton and Sammie Coates, each of whom reeled in a 30-yard reception and contributed virtually nothing else in that contest. From that perspective, the mere presence of wideouts Martavis Bryant (37 catches for 419 yards in 2017) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (37 for 585 yards) changes the complexion of this game. Bryant has had a quiet campaign by his standards, but his deep-ball prowess is well documented. And Smith-Schuster can threaten defenses vertically from the outside and the slot. If the Pats dare Pittsburgh’s other receivers to beat them, the Steelers are equipped to make them pay.http://huaxi.labsky.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=68122&PN=1&TPN=1
