Steelers gameday; Contain, Contain, Contain

There are some games during an NFL season when having a fast, aggressive defense has the potential to bite a team in the ass.

For the Steelers, today's game in Atlanta is exactly one of them.

There are two huge counteracts to a defense like the Steelers', those being a good cutback running back, and the other is a scrambling quarterback.

And there isn't a better scrambling quarterback, arguably in the history of the NHL, than Michael Vick.

It's easier said than done, but if the Steelers don't contain Vick, and if he and Warrick Dunn rush for their average of 200 yards today, this could bring the Steelers right back down to Earth after their big win vs. the Chiefs last week.

The blueprint better be; Contain Vick, and let him throw like Kordell Stewart all day long = Steelers win
