Ready to focus on Chargers

The Steelers began preparation in earnest on Monday for their AFC Divisional Playoff game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday at Heinz Field.

But even though they didn’t know their opponent, the team got in plenty of good work during three days of practice during their bye last week.

Instead of preparing for a different potential opponent each day, the Steelers focused on working on sharpening their own skills, something many players welcomed.

“It lets you prepare on yourself, on your weaknesses,” said cornerback Deshea Townsend. “Any time you allow yourself to get better it makes you a better player and a better team.”

Going into the wild card weekend the Steelers had the potential of playing the Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts or the Chargers. The Chargers defeated the Colts and the Baltimore Ravens eliminated the Dolphins, sending San Diego to Pittsburgh.

“You can’t really prepare to play three different teams,” said safety Ryan Clark. “You can’t watch film on three different teams. You can’t run three different team’s plays. It was about us last week. That’s what the guys were out there focusing on and it was a good approach.”

The individual work, with each position spending time with their coaches, was reminiscent in some ways of training camp when the team was not preparing for a given opponent.

“Individually we walked through some things that were bothering us,” said linebacker Larry Foote. “We sharpened our own sword.”

And despite having the number one ranked defense in the NFL, Foote and his teammates felt there was plenty of work to be done last week.

“You don’t play perfect,” said Foote. “There are a lot of mistakes we make that we can eliminate including mistakes that we make mentally. We have to keep improving on things we are doing well, but the stuff we aren’t doing well we have to address it and figure it out. “

One thing that head coach Mike Tomlin made sure of during the three days of practice was that the competitive fire kept burning. That wasn’t a problem.

“If you watched practice it was pretty competitive out there,” said defensive end Chris Hoke. “We have had competitive periods, two minute drills, third downs. It was good for all of us.”

Harrison named NFL Defensive Player of the Year


Linebacker James Harrison capped off an impressive 2008 season when he was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year by the a.ssociated Press on Monday.

Harrison, who was voted MVP by his teammates for a second straight year, set a Steelers single-season record with 16 sacks this year, bypassing the old record set by linebacker Mike Merriweather in 1984.

“When I saw him up close, I knew it would be broken this year,” said Merriweather. “I knew the pace he was going he would do it. Having the chance to watch him personally at a Steelers game I knew this was going to be the year, despite all of the great linebackers who have come through there – guys like Kevin Greene, Greg Lloyd and Chad Brown.”

Harrison was voted a Pro Bowl starter for the second consecutive year while recording a career-high 100 tackles and 68 solo stops. Harrison was a menace to opponents all season, leading the NFL with seven forced fumbles.

Harrison was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 16. Harrison sacked Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, forcing a fumble that resulted in a safety in the 11-10 win. Harrison also intercepted Rivers with the Chargers driving late in the first half and returned it 33 yards to put the Steelers to set up a Jeff Reed field goal.

Harrison was also voted the GMC Defensive Player of the Week by fans for his performance against the Chargers and Patriots.

“He is just geared for football, he is made for football,” said Merriweather. “The physical aspect, the build that he has and the physical attributes that he possess, he is the prototype linebacker. He is not only the prototype linebacker, but he epitomizes what a Steelers linebacker is all about – hard-nosed, tenacious, get the job done and separate the ball from the ball carrier. He fits the mold and tradition of a Steelers linebacker.

“The talent and tenacity he has and his ability, it just comes out and stands out. He is making an impact week in and week out, not just with sacks but forced fumbles and freeing up LaMarr Woodley on the other side.”

Harrison has probably taken one of the most unlikely routes to the player of the year honor, coming into the NFL as a rookie free agent in 2002 and starting off on the practice squad.

“In the offseason when I get the opportunity to look back once the season is over with, I sit back and I am a little amazed,” said Harrison of how far he has come. “This year I came in and wanted to do better than I did the previous year.”

Harrison is one of five Steelers players to be named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year and the first since Rod Woodson took the honor in 1993. Others who have won were linebacker Jack Lambert (1976), cornerback Mel Blount (1975) and defensive tackle Joe Greene (1972 and 1974).

Steelers defeat Chargers 35-24, advance to AFC Championship Game
Sunday, January 11, 2009

By Teresa Varley
Steelers.com
On a weekend when home field didn’t hold much of an advantage, the Steelers were the only team to come away with a win on their own turf, defeating the San Diego Chargers 35-24 to advance to the AFC Championship game.

The Steelers will host the Baltimore Ravens, a team they beat twice this season, at Heinz Field on Sunday, Jan. 18.

"It feels great to move from the field of eight to the field of four; especially in the fashion that we desire to do it in," said head coach Mike Tomlin. "I think that we played our kind of football today. I think that our big people on both sides of the ball did a nice job; special teams was a nice a.sset. I think that overall, collectively, it was a great team effort.

"I think that the team came out ready to play and focused, but not overly so. We have a mentally tough group in there, and they were able to display it today. San Diego is a very good team; they are battle-tested and they have been through a lot. We have a great deal of respect for those guys, both players and coaches. We look forward to moving on."

Running back Willie Parker had 27 carries for 146 yards, while Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of 26 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown.

The Chargers took an early lead, driving down the field on their opening drive. Philip Rivers connected with Antonio Gates for a 21-yard completion and hit Darren Sproles for 12 yards on the screen. Rivers then went deep, hitting Vincent Jackson in the end zone for a 41-yard touchdown, taking a 7-0 lead with just 2:01 off the clock.

The running game got going for the Steelers on their first drive when Parker had three carriers for a combined 22 yards. A holding call on Santonio Holmes after a short completion to Hines Ward slowed things down, and the offense wasn’t able to dig out of the hole. On fourth-and-eight the offense remained on the field, but Roethlisberger instead punted the ball, pinning the Chargers back at their own nine-yard line.

A big defensive stop forced the Chargers to punt and the Steelers made them pay. Holmes fielded Mike Scifres 53-yard punt at the Steelers 33-yard line and took it to the outside, returning it 67 yards for a touchdown, to quickly tie the game at 7-7.

A swarming defense continued to disrupt the Chargers. LaMarr Woodley was all over Rivers for an eight-yard sack, while James Farrior wasn’t letting Sproles go anywhere on third-and-25, stopping him for just a one-yard gain.

Unfortunately, the Steelers didn’t fare any better on their next drive. Parker was stopped after just a one-yard gain and Roethlisberger wasn’t able to connect with Nate Washington along the right sideline. On third down, Eric Weddle came on the safety blitz, sacking Roethlisberger for a four-yard loss.

The Chargers were able to get a little momentum going with an eight and four-yard run by Sproles. Rivers found Gates for a seven-yard gain, setting up third-and-two. Sproles went off left guard for one-yard and the Chargers challenged that his forward progress gave him the first down, but the call stood and they were forced to punt.

The ground game got the bulk of the work for the Steelers on the next drive as Parker moved the ball with four straight carries for 23 yards. Mewelde Moore added a four-yard carry and they went right back to Parker for three yards. After a false start call the Steelers were faced with third-and-eight, but came up short when Carey Davis was stopped for a six-yard gain.

It was three-and-out for the Chargers on their next drive, despite what looked like a big gain for them. Rivers hit Jackson for 43 yards, but the Steelers challenged the call and it was ruled incomplete, the ball hitting the ground.

Unable to move the chains on their next drive the Steelers tried to trick the Chargers, but they didn’t fall for it. Mitch Berger lined up in punt formation and Ryan Clark took the snap, but was knocked for a four-yard loss on the rush.

The Chargers took over at the Steelers 45-yard line, but the defense stepped up to the challenge, keeping them out of the end zone and holding them to a Nate Keading field goal to give the Chargers at 10-7 lead

They wouldn’t be down for long, though. The offense kicked it into overdrive, with a 15-yard completion to Holmes and a nine-yard grab by Moore. Gary Russell powered forward for three yards to convert on third-and-one to keep the drive rolling. Roethlisberger went deep to Ward, hitting him in stride at the three-yard line for a 41-yard gain. Parker capped the drive on the pitch-out, taking it around left end for the touchdown, giving the Steelers a 14-10 halftime lead.

The Steelers kept the momentum going in the second half, coming out strong on their opening drive. Parker got it started with a 13-yard carry and Roethlisberger hit Holmes for 10-yards on third down. An incompletion and a one-yard loss by Parker set up a third-and-11, but Roethlisberger was unfazed, hitting Washington for an 18-yard gain. Faced with another third down, Roethlisberger hit Miller for an 18-yard gain to the 12-yard line. Miller capped the drive with an eight-yard touchdown reception to extend the lead to 21-10.

Sproles gave the Chargers a spark when he returned the kickoff 63 yards to the Steelers 23-yard line. It wouldn’t take long for the Steelers to take the wind out of their sails when on the first play of the drive Brett Keisel tipped a Rivers pass and Larry Foote intercepted it. The Chargers challenged the call, but it was upheld.

The offense wasn’t able to capitalize on the turnover, but got a huge break when the punt hit off Weddle’s helmet and was recovered by William Gay at the 23-yard line. With new life, Roethlisberger hit Ward for 19 yards to the nine-yard line, and a personal foul for a late hit against Cletis Gordon was tacked on, giving them the ball at the four-yard line. Parker pounded it up the middle to the one-yard line, but Roethlisberger was unable to find an open receiver in the end zone. Russell took it up the middle for no gain and on third down Davis was unable to get the ball in the end zone, turning it over on downs.

The Chargers would have no chance to dig out of their hole. Rivers hit Jacob Hester for an 11-yard gain, but Woodley sacked Rivers for a 10 yard loss on the next play. On third-and-20 Rivers could not connect with Gates, putting the ball back in the hands of the Steelers offense.

And this time, they would make the most of it. Roethlisberger went for it all, going deep to Washington in the end zone. Weddle was called for pass interference, giving the Steelers the ball at the one-yard line. Russell punched it in for the touchdown and a 28-10 lead.

San Diego managed to come right back and answer the Steelers touchdown. Rivers completed passes to Jackson and Brandon Manumaleuna and then went to Sproles for 11 yards. On third-and-10 Rivers hit Chris Chambers for 15 yards. Rives went back to Chambers for 25 yards and was aided by a late hit call on Troy Polamalu, giving them the ball at the four-yard line. Rivers hit Legedu Naanee for the touchdown, cutting the lead to 28-17.

Not to be outdone, the Steelers marched right back down the field, sealing the win when Parker easily scored on a 16-yard run around right end for a 35-17 lead.

The Chargers added a 62-yard touchdown pass from Rivers to Sproles, to cut the lead to 35-24, but it wouldn't be enough for the win.

Past games mean nothing come kickoff

It’s a theme that is going to be repeated time and time again this week, a question players are going to be asked over and over again.

How hard is it to beat a team three times in a season?

And the answer so far has been pretty plain and simple.

“It’s this game,” said fullback Carey Davis. “Those two games are in the past. We have a new game this week. Both teams are going to have a different mindset. They aren’t going to come in to the game thinking we lost twice it’s over. We can’t go into the game thinking we beat them twice it’s over.

“It’s going to be a great game and we have to go out there and f!ght. We have to show up Sunday ready to f!ght and they have to show up Sunday ready to f!ght.”

The Steelers won the two regular season meetings against the Ravens this year, defeating them 23-20 on Sept. 29 at Heinz Field in overtime and 13-9 at M&T Bank Stadium on Dec. 14.

“You have to put the other two behind you,” said running back Willie Parker. “We have to put all of that behind us.”

The Steelers had a similar situation in 1994 and 2002 when they defeated the Cleveland Browns twice during the regular season and both times defeated them in the playoffs.

“I personally don’t subscribe to that hocus-pocus to be honest with you,” said head coach Mike Tomlin of the difficulty of winning three times. “We are going to go play them; it is two good teams. They play the way that we play. It is going to be a knock-down, drag-out (game). What happened in the other two games will have no bearing on the outcome of this game. The other two games were close; one went into overtime and the other one was low scoring. It doesn’t mean that is going to be the case this week.

“We are going to prepare with respect to that; and understand that each individual performance stands on its own. We aren’t buying into that.”

The bottom line is when the ball is snapped on Sunday, nothing that happened during the season is going to matter. What is going to matter is what’s on the line during 60 minutes of football at Heinz Field.

“There is a lot at stake,” said Parker. “It’s a chance to go to Tampa. We are so close, just like they are so close. One game and you are there. It’s going to be a great game, a brutal game."

pretty sure ur talkin bout james harrison....he missed a play or 2 but was obv fine afterwards.






<------------

and damn my dude right here been atoning for his mediocre regular season....thats twice now he's kinda manufactured a game swinging play for 6 points :applause: and wtf that was and still is a TD in my eyes that they called back....he CLEARLY caught the ball, had possession and was trying to get a few extra yards for the TD. like i understand the 'going to the ground' rule, but he already secured it, and put his arm down to propel him for more yardage. sh*t was nonsense but moot point now.
