    The main difference is the Steelers defense is a lot worse than New England's.

    I really hope they scheme to stop Gronk, and that it's as effective as it was yesterday (287 yards and 4 TDs)...

    IMO, everyone keeps ignoring the most dynamic aspect of the Patriots offense. The three-headed dual threat backfield. Much better chance of knocking them off if you contain Lewis, Burkhead, and White as opposed to simply limiting Gronk IMO.
    Jags had the number 1 rush offense and the number 6 total offense in the NFL this year.

    I'm aware. Belichick is famous for taking away his opponent's #1 offensive option. If they can contain Fournette, it'll be very difficult for the Jags.

    Oh silly Jaguars....I get it, you've never been in this situation before, but you'd think you'd keep your mouths shut after all the talking the Steelers did last week.

    Haha. They just got home from Pittsburgh and they had like a pep rally at the stadium. Regardless, he's a confident player and doesnt back down at all.

    No doubt. I'm interested to see how they use him next week. Surely, they aren't going to try and cover Gronk with him?

    There are probably a total of 5 players in the NFL I think could hold their own against him and Ramsey is one. That being said there is no chance that happens. Myles Jack and Telvin Smith are two of the fastest linebackers in the NFL. My guess is a combo of those two and a safety. They're gonna leave the corners one on one with the WRs and hope they dont give up big plays to them.

    I'm obviously biased, but I don't think there's a player in the league that can hold their own against Gronk. I agree Ramsey would be more successful than most though.

    I think what you mentioned is the best strategy. Most interesting aspect for me is how they're going to combat the Lewis, White, Burkhead trio. They figure that out and it doesn't bode well for the Patriots IMO.

    Yeah it’s still stupid to not give the cliche one game at a time quote whenever pressed by the media. Don’t kid yourself, the Steelers didn’t expect the Jags to come out and put it on them so early. I think they definitely overlooked the Jags. Tomlin said he didn’t have a problem with them talking about the Pats all week. Why give a team that already kicked the crap out of you once this year any more motivation?

    When encroachment and false start penaltys are called, they are usually called at that moment. In NE, they are called 15 seconds after the fact.

    The guy in motion can't start up the field until the snap is made, when NE has the ball it's not a penalty if they start up the field a second or two early.

    Got nothing to cry about, don't have a dog in this fight. Just wishing to see a game @ NE that the officials give BOTH teams a fair shake. Am I asking too much?

    Especially when he can push off every play to him and get away with it.

    What play are you talking about here?

    Always comes down to officials, doesn't it? It's just like when the Bengals and Steelers play, you always hear about all the stuff Pittsburgh got away with. Plain and simple, play better. The "officials aren't fair" is such a lazy narrative.
