    Who will handle covering AB and who would you choose?

    Obviously there will be Safety help over the top.

    Butler and McCourty most likely. They cant shut him down but the important thing is not letting him fly all over the field like he did against the Ravens. They had Brandon Carr on him, often without safety help, and he torched them for like zillion yards.

    I think we match up well against the Steelers receivers. Butler and Gilmore have both had good games vs Brown. I say Gilmore With occasional help.

    Why do people want Gilmore? Great idea, put the tall guy on the short guy and the short guy on the tall guy.

    I am not afraid at all. We match up well against the Steelers. Butler with DMC help on Brown. Glimore on Bryant and Rowe/Jones on Juju(He's smaller) ...

    Whoever with Safety help over the Top wouldn't mind L Bell having a Great game if that means stopping their Air Attack. That would slow the Game down in our favor.

    Regardless of the particular match ups, this secondary is phenomenal and definitely has the tools to contain Pittsburgh's passing game. At the same time, they've also got the right philosophy on defense to contain a RB like Bell.

    If they play up to their potential, which they should given the **** performance on Monday, then under no circumstance should Pittsburgh's offense put up more than 17 points.

    You can easily distinguish the fantasy level fans from people that recognize this game is about matchups just based on them saying Gilmore should cover AB. Jesus...

    Speaking of Gronk career wise he's been a Steeler Killer also Hogan showed in the Playoffs last year that they couldn't stop him. I like our chances with those guys.:cool:

    Gilmore is tall AND faster than Brown. That extra length will make Ben have to make a better throw. Plus Brown pushes off all the time and you need someone physical like Gilmore that can handle it better. If you have watched the Steelers, Brown kills teams with the deep routes. He gets so much separation with his speed and pushes. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Jones ,our fastest db, with safety help all game, with Gilmore and Butler taking care of Bryant and Juju.
