Pittsburgh Steelers: What they're saying

Posted Oct 31, 2013

Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin and several Steelers players discussed the upcoming game against the Patriots. Here are the highlights of what they had to say.


On playing at Gillette Stadium...

"It’s always a tough place to play. They are a good football team. It’s a good crowd. It doesn’t get any easier for us this week."
- Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger

On the Patriots losing key guys on defense...

"It’s still a good defense, they still make plays. Those guys are obviously – you get Vince in the run game and Jerod in both – he had been playing lights-out football. Those are marquee guys for them, but in typical New England fashion they fit guys in and find ways to get it done."
- Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger

"I think they’ve got a lot of good players that are playing for them right now. Brandon Spikes and [Don’t’a] Hightower and Chandler Jones. I mean those are highly regarded young guys that just came out in recent drafts and they’re showing their worth. You couple that with the addition of the young versatile guy [Jamie] Collins from Southern [Mississippi] and I think they have a lot of good players playing right now. I think the talk about the guys that their missing is an injustice to the quality young players that they are playing with right now."
- Head Coach Mike Tomlin

On preparing for Rob Gronkowsk...

"He is a special player. He does a lot of things for them. The vertical stuff down the field obviously, the red zone talents are what they are. He is a big component of the passing game. He has been back for a couple of weeks and I think he has been targeted 23 times. So, obviously we need to allocate some work to try and minimize his role in the game."
- Head Coach Mike Tomlin

On the need to start fast and play a full 60-minutes against the Patriots...

“We have to come out strong and play strong for four quarters. It’s going to be a 60 minute dogfight and whoever wins all four quarters is going to win the game.”
- Defensive End, Cameron Heyward

Tom Brady is not a guy you can start slow against, no team is, and expect to just come back or anything like that. We have to start fast in all aspects of the game and improve on last week.”
- Cornerback Cortez Allen

On defending against Tom Brady...

“You have to control the clock and keep him off the field. He has gone through some ups and downs with his receivers and they are probably planning on having a huge day against us so we have to be ready to control that.”
- Defensive End, Cameron Heyward
