If there’s anything average about the Steelers’ No.-1 ranked defense, it’s probably in the cornerback spots.

So Taylor, like all NFL corners, will need help in covering the Super Bowl’s most dangerous player.

How much help he’ll require could determine the game’s outcome. If Fitzgerald, say, catches only five balls for 50 yards, yet the Cardinals can put up 30 points, they’ll have a great shot at winning.

Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin points out, “Rush and coverage work together.”

So if they can’t cover him, they’ll need to bring a big rush on Kurt Warner. If the Cardinals can pick this up, then the Steelers’ defense won’t be so fearsome.
