"I'm sure everybody … is saying, 'We got so much pressure last week and we hit Roethlisberger.' Roethlisberger is a different animal. He's going to stand there like a man and throw it," said Ravens linebacker Jarret Johnson. "I'm not saying that Hasselbeck is not, but he's a West Coast rhythm guy and he's throwing that football. There's no sense in sending seven or eight guys and putting pressure on the back-end guys. You might as well leave the extra guys in coverage."
The Ravens faced a similar approach before, and they will again. When they do, Harbaugh said that any success will start with getting better coverage from the secondary.
"The bottom line is, you cover them and you mix up coverages and you change up coverages," Harbaugh said. "We can do a better job of disguising coverages, I think, although a guy like [Hasselbeck] is pretty good at reading them. You have to cover their receivers. We hit them a lot, and we'll continue to. It's like last year when we got the three-step stuff. You'll go get the guy, but the ball is probably going to be out. You get some batted balls. That's important, but you have to cover their receivers."
