Here's what happens tonight. The Pittsburgh Steelers, who play the run tougher than any team in the NFL, will do what they did in their loss Sunday to the New York Jets. They'll pack the line, commit to stopping the run and dare Jimmy Clausen to throw forward passes. The style the Steelers play will yield opportunities. Steve Smith will get enough single coverage to make an impact. Be interesting to see if Clausen has time to get him the ball.
Clausen needs to open up. He throws so many short passes that defensive backs don't feel as if they have to stop the long ones. Go deep, young man, go deep.
