    Celek is extremely reliable and so is Gonzalez. I will give you the fact that Olsen is more of a receiving tight end rather than being an all around tight end. Gonzalez had 70 receptions this season and both Olsen and Celek were right there with Miller.

    But none of the 3 had any success whatsoever against the Packers in the playoffs which says something about their ability to cover.

    heres the dagger to pittsburgh saying they have a legit receiving corps

    Heath miller with 77 total receiving yards 38.5 average a game
    Some guy named sanders has 74 receiving yards 37 yards a game
    Hines Ward has 39 receiving yards 19.5 average a game
    Brown has 89 yards 44.5 yards a game
    Mike Wallace has 26 yards 13 yards a game
    That is A L L of the yards they got in 2 playoff games.

    It's not like the Packers threw a lot over the 2nd half of the Bear game either

    I was actually thinking their receivers were too strong.

    I should have clarified that....Not like the Packers did much more in the Second half than the Steelers did....


    it's crazy scary how much these two teams look alike

    I do not know if I would use playoff stats to give a whole picture. I mean, the three teams the Packers faced were much better against the run and weaker against the pass. The Bears were 9th overall, but 20th against the pass. The Falcons were 16th overall, but 22nd against the pass. The Eagles were 12th overall, but 14th against the pass. The Steelers faced the Ravens and Jets. Both of them fielded top 10 overall defenses (Jets-3rd, Ravens-10th). The Jets were 6th against the pass and the Ravens were 21st. But, the Ravens were a rivalry for us, you can throw stats out the window (like the Pack/Bears).

    There are just too many variables to attempt to use a small sample size like the playoffs to prove this point. The Packers have a more seasoned group of wide receivers, there is little doubt there, but the Steelers have good starters, some vets in the mix behind them, and two explosive rookies. In addition, the Steelers have experience at runningback and we throw to them AND are better at tightend.

    The Steelers are far from lacking depth at WR, it is just young.

    The steelers depth at wr is amazing ! They have fresh legs that can flat out fly ......I love how people think this GREAT secondary is gods gift. Only the people in Chicago can say more than 2 of the bears wr names, Falcons only have 1, and the eagles have 1. We have 3 that will fly by you and then 1 that will take the middle by storm and get up smiling ! Randle el is a DQ nightmare. You keep thinking your secondary is a tank and will find a kink in that armour........count on it !
