    To me the bend don't break mentality is in the first 3 quarters, that's the way they play, then it goes out the window when we go into prevent or zone...whatever..and lost 2 games...instead of staying with what got you there in the first 3 quarters.

    Cautionary note: Beginning in the Super Bowl, Pittsburgh has played tight man-on-man coverage in the first three quarters and built leads, then shifted to soft zones in the fourth quarter and squandered leads. This pattern held in the Steelers' Week 4 game against the Chargers and again against the Lions. In two meetings in the calendar year 2009 -- in the 2008 playoffs, and then in the 2009 regular season -- San Diego has scored 17 points against Pittsburgh in the first three quarters and 35 points in the fourth quarter. Detroit looked good against Pittsburgh in the fourth quarter, too


    The Steelers have been outscored 55-13 in the fourth quarter, and 71-20 dating to the Super Bowl against Arizona.
