3 seconds

All you need to know about the Super Bowl on Sunday is this....3 seconds! What you say? That is the amount of time the Steelers defense will have to get to Cards QB Kurt Warner. If they can sack or force the veteran QB out of the pocket the Steelers will have an easy time of it. However if Warner is given time to find his targets he will shred the Pittsburgh defensive backs. The Cards offensive line will have to protect the immobile Warner against one of the best pass rushes in recent years. Play action by Warner could help but the Cards running game has not faced a defense like the Steelers all season long. The Eagles got back into the NFC Title game in the 2nd half when they were able to put pressure on Warner via stunts and blitzes. Look for the Steelers Defensive Coordinator Dick Lebeau to pressure Warner early and often.
