It’s Sunday.Â Championship Sunday.
In my opinion, here’s what the Steelers need to do to win:
1.Â Play action passes.Â Fake the Ravens into thinking TE Heath Miller is there to block then drop him back to catch.Â It worked several times against the Chargers and I think will work against Baltimore as well.
2.Â Watch for the Ravens defense to move sides right before the snap count when it’s too late to shift offense, they tend to leave either Bart Scott on the side or Ed Reed unaccounted for in the middle – not enough blockers.Â Read that and block.
3.Â Pay attentionÂ Ngata.Â He throws people around like they’re rag dolls.
4.Â Don’t give up field position with penalties.Â Keep emotions in check.Â Let the Ravens be the ones to show their frustration – after all they are tired and worn down, more likely they will jump and do stupid things to draw the flags.
5.Â Run the ball.Â Use Mewelde and Willie P to their strengths.Â The offensive line needs to do their part too, however.
And finally, Ben, do NOT give up the ball.Â Throw smart.Â Ed Reed is gonna be sittin’ deep just waiting for a mistake.
Here we go Steelers!!
