Keys to another Steelers Victory!

Posted on: January 10, 2009 12:00 pm

I got so much trouble on my mind, refuse to lose!! Stamp my ticket to my Steelers get wicked!!

Keys to Victory!

  1. DEFENSE, DEFENSE, DEFENSE!!  Get after Philip Rivers and force him to throw when he doesn't want to, thereby creating turnovers. 
  2. RUN THE ROCK!!!  I love Willie Parker, but I believe that Mewelde Moore should start, allow him to soften up the Chargers Defense with his relentless running style and bring in the explosiveness of Parker to break those long ones after Mewelde Moore has pounded them for a few 4, 5 and 6 yard gains. 
  3. Special Teams:  This is a critical area as it lends to the Field Position game.  The Chargers punter Mike Scrifes should be an all-pro.  He has a great leg and great placement in the kicking game.  We on the other lack a solid punter & punt return game.  WE MUST Win this battle of special teams or it will be one and done. 
  4. Roethlisberger must get rid of the ball.  "He is my Quarterback" (ala T.O.), as a Steelers Fan, I've suffered the ups and downs of years of Subpar quarterbacks.  Big Ben is our guy, the winningest quarterback in his first five years as a pro is tops in NFL with 50 wins in his first 5 years.  Which translates to 10 wins a season.  I love his toughness but he needs to be smarter sometimes.  Three and five step drops should be worked in as well as the screen pass that takes some of that pressure off of Ben.
  5. OFFENSIVE LINE, must play well.  Scratch that, they need to play one of; if not the best game of the year on Sunday.  I'm talking not allowing anyone to get to Ben Roethlisberger.  IF we can do those things, HERE WE COME AFC TITLE GAME.  Stay tuned people.
