Matt Hasselbeck, unlike Michael Vick, isn’t a mobile guy. He can move a bit and isn’t exactly a statue in the pocket, but he’s older and he’s slow and he doesn’t break runs. That means he’s a good target.
The Steelers did a nice job of keeping Vick in check on Sunday. They need to build off that this week and keep Hasselbeck under fire.
Whether Jason Worilds or LaMarr Woodley is manning the one outside linebacker spot, I would bring both that guy and James Harrison as regularly as possible. You don’t want to sacrifice coverage on pass plays, but with the Titans offense, the Steelers can afford a little more risk in their approach.
The more pressure they can create in the backfield and in crushing the pocket, the more chance there will be for turnovers. The Steelers have been pretty good offensively at not turning the ball over. The defense needs to get better at creating some.
