ENEMY LINES
WHAT A RIVAL COACH SAYS

"Off-schedule plays are what make Ben Roethlisberger [below] so dangerous. He's always the X factor in the offense because of the way he can create and keep plays alive.... When Willie Parker is healthy, he is a great back for them because he can hit a hole and get outside. They don't do a lot of pulling there.... Third down in the slot, there's no one better than Hines Ward in getting open and making the tough catch. In the red zone Ward is the first guy they try to look for because he's good at getting open.... On the outside Santonio Holmes is a speed guy who can move. He absolutely is on the rise after the Super Bowl he had. He and Roethlisberger will only get better together.... Defenses pretty much have to commit a safety to cover Heath Miller, because linebackers have too hard a time with him."
