Manning is a 1st ballot HOF'er who was clearly ready to play. I am really not too surprised that he carved through our defense so easily. When Ben throws a pick 6 and we're not clicking on offense that well, it becomes difficult to overcome a QB who is at the top of his game.
When said QB continues to eat your scheme up and you have only beaten him once, why would you think that scheme is going to suddenly work?

The Pats always frustrated Manning by playing physical, man coverage and disrupting his timing. I've rarely seen Manning lose when he is playing agt. man off coverage.

The same goes for Brady. You aren't going to beat him if you let him get in a rhythm and gameplan to surrender the short game. He will dink and dunk you all the way to 40 points.

Can they beat you if you play press? Of course, but it is almost a given they will carve up any man off schemes. It simply doesn't work and the Steelers record agt. these two over the years is a testament to that.
