The Pittsburgh Steelers can brag about handing the Baltimore Ravens two of their few losses of the season.
Once was in the midst of the regular season, and the other was against backups, but the game plan was pretty much the same.
That’s why Cam Heyward recently claimed that the Steelers laid the blueprint for rival teams to beat the Ravens.
Talking on his podcast, Heyward was also in awe of the fact that the Ravens ran away from their identity, no pun intended (via NFL on ESPN on Twitter).
He talked about how mind-boggling it was to see them running the football just sixteen times all game despite having the likes of Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, and Lamar Jackson.
Heyward believes that oftentimes, teams tend to make the mistake of trying to play catch-up with Parick Mahomes, which is always a big mistake.
He called out Todd Monken and the Ravens for giving up on the run despite being down just seven points, so it wasn’t like the game was out of reach.
Once again, this shows Heyward’s expertise and great football mind and is one of the many reasons why so many people believe he’d make for an elite coach once it’s all said and done.
Cam Heyward isn’t getting any younger, and he must be thinking about post-retirement life already.
And while all the fans would love to see him hanging the cleats and calling it a career, we’re all pretty sure that Head Coach Mike Tomlin would welcome him with open arms on his coaching staff any day of the week.
