gainst Warriors playmaker and Kiwis ace Johns Antworten

PITTSBURGH -- The list of rookie quarterbacks the Pittsburgh Steelers have provided lesson after lesson to over the past 12 years is long if not always distinguished.For every Eli Manning, Joe Flacco and Andy Dalton that Pittsburghs defense has taken to task since the start of the 2004 season theres a Charlie Frye, John Beck and E.J. Manuel.Only time will tell which group Philadelphias Carson Wentz fits into. At the moment, the Steelers (2-0) dont particularly care.While theyve been impressed as anyone by Wentzs preternatural calm while getting the Philadelphia Eagles off to a 2-0 start, theyre ready to provide their own unique test on Sunday.Hes definitely made plays in this league so far, but its up to us to make sure that stops this week, Pittsburgh linebacker Arthur Moats said.Thats typically what tends to happen when rookies find the Steelers on the other side of the line of scrimmage.Pittsburgh is 19-2 against first-year quarterbacks over the past dozen seasons, holding opposing offenses to 15.75 points and forcing double the amount of interceptions (25) as passing touchdowns allowed (12).Moats stressed the secret is, there is no secret. Maybe, but the defense Wentz will get an extended look at this weekend is unlike the ones faced by his predecessors.The Steelers are evolving in defensive coordinator Keith Butler seconds season on the job after replacing mentor Dick LeBeau.Last fall Butler tinkered with exotic blitz packages designed to ramp up the pressure and take some of the heat off a shaky secondary.Through the first two weeks of 2016 hes taken a decidedly less risky approach, often dropping Pittsburghs outside linebackers into pass coverage instead of sending them crashing helter-skelter into the pocket like a mob of Pokemon Go players.Through eight quarters, the Steelers have all of one sack. They also have zero losses. Seems like a pretty fair equation to Butler.We havent done (blitzed) like weve done it in the past because weve got a pretty good offense too, he said.Wed like to have the (sack) numbers that the hierarchy in the defense in the league has, but its worth more to me to win ballgames.Its telling that two of the three turnovers the Steelers have created have come on plays 38-year-old linebacker James Harrison found himself well downfield trying to cover players least a decade his junior.In the opener against Washington it was a diving interception in the end zone to seal a blowout.Against Cincinnati it was a textbook tackle on 22-year-old Bengals rookie wide receiver Tyler Boyd that sent the ball squirting onto the soggy Heinz Field turf with less than two minutes to go to preserve a victory.Call it the next step in the evolution of a defense searching for the proper balance between discipline and daring as Butler grows more comfortable with his personnel.Its like college, Moats said. Think about the difference between your freshman and sophomore classes and your junior and senior classes. Youre still talking about the same Xs and Os, but we can give a lot more detail to it.Details the Steelers are still ironing out. Butler isnt pleased with the inability of the defensive line to consistently create chaos. Then again, neither are his players.Sacks come in bunches, defensive end Stephon Tuitt said. Once we get one, theyre gonna start coming and coming.The Steelers are trying to figure out how to get to Wentz. At its height under Hall of Fame defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, Pittsburghs defense made an awful lot of quarterbacks look like rookies. Not so much anymore.Then again, just because Butler hasnt let Harrison and company loose doesnt mean he wont.You definitely want to beat him up, Moats said. Youve got to hit him. Then again, if confuse him with different looks, now hes worried about trying to get hit and hes also thinking `Wheres the coverage at? `Wheres my hot receiver? It definitely needs to be a mix of both.And for all of their success against rookies, the Steelers can be had, even by players with an `R next to their name. Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith did it for Baltimore in 2007 and Brandon Weeden did it for the Browns in 2012.Butler downplayed the notion he can fool Wentz into mistakes.When you try to game plan for an offense, you dont take into account that hes a rookie, Butler said. Were not worrying about if somebody is a rookie or not.Game notes WR Markus Wheaton practiced again and appears set on making his season debut after missing the first two games with a sprained shoulder. ... DE Cam Heyward (knee) and FB Roosevelt Nix (back) were limited. ... Backup QB Landry Jones (back) did not practice.---AP NFL website: and Douglas Santos Jersey . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. David Luiz Jersey . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. Casemiro Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse.

Adam Reynolds will press his claims for a Kangaroos call-up over the final month of the NRL season, starting with a head-to-head clash with Kiwis star Shaun Johnson this weekend.The South Sydney halfback broke through for representative honours this season in playing for NSW in State of Origin I and II.A shoulder injury ruled him out of the Blues win in Origin III, but the 2014 premiership winner has sufficiently recovered from that to make a concerted push for international representation over the final four games of the regular season.And with Souths out of the finals reckoning a call-up to Mal Meningas side for the end of season tournament, in what would be his Australian debut, is a focus.It would be nice, Reynolds said.The shoulder is all good. The body is feeling reeally good at the moment.ddddddddddddI am in good shape for the last month of the season.The injury is where it needs to be. It is in the past, I have got through a few games, the confidence is there.Souths travel to Auckland to face the eighth-placed Warriors on Saturday in round 23.Reynolds knows a good performance against Warriors playmaker and Kiwis ace Johnson will enhance his claims for a spot on the Kangaroo tour.He is a great player. He has won the golden boot. There is an aura about him, he said.Like the rest of the Warriors he is playing with a lot of confidence at the moment.They are a big physical side so we need to be on our game.
