Podcast: McFadden Faces Tall Task In Guarding Packers Wide Receivers

Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden has struggled defending the Packers wide receivers one before, which is not a good omen for the Pittsburgh secondary with the Super Bowl on the line.

DALLAS – One of the top matchups to watch on Super Bowl Sunday will be the deep wide receiver corps of the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh cornerbacks, probably the weakest link on the Steelers.

I had a chance to speak to both Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings and Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden about their meeting last year in the wild card round of the playoffs when McFadden was still with the Arizona Cardinals.

Awesome interview! The local guys and bloggers have so much more insight into the teams and matchups than the national media. Keep up the great work!

Nice report ....

I think'in McFadden will see alot of GJ ..... Mostly from a ground-level line of sight as GJ races past ..... GJ is due another 60+ TD rec ..... Steeler DBs will be exploited big-time .....

Always great work, Brian.

This question is for anyone: As a general trend, do you see the packers opening up with the running game to set up the pass, using the pass to set up the run, or taking a balanced approach to keeping the steelers honest?
As far as the steelers defense is concerned, I have heard they will work mainly out of the nickel and dare the packers to run. Any thoughts?

P.s. Being in Pittsburgh as a Packer fan blows. As a whole, the people here know nothing about football. All they know is that they love the steelers and that James Harrison is being targeted by the NFL.

Packers usually pass to set up the run, but run just enough to keep teams honest, at least thats been the playoff formula. Packers vs Bears, they opened up in running formations and had the Bears biting like crazy on play action, which backed off there run blitz, (in theory) for a while.

Just me, or did McFadden's voice lack confidence?
