"I'm sure it could have lasted longer," Bishop said of the video. "A lot of guys are going for his pump fakes or not wrapping up fully when they have him.
"It's just a mental or a subliminal note that when you get your opportunity to get him, you got to hit, you got to wrap up and bring all your technique and all your weight with you, because he's definitely a big guy to bring down."
Green Bay sacked Roethlisberger five times but missed several other opportunities as the quarterback threw for a career-best 503 yards and three touchdowns in Pittsburgh's wild 37-36 victory.
"I counted," Capers said. "We had five sacks and a chance at five, a legitimate chance at five other sacks. But it was just basically him being Ben, you know, where we missed him or we hit him and came off of him."
The timely video review was meant to remind the Packers that there are no easy ways to bring a 6-foot-5, 241-pound person to the ground.
That's why Roethlisberger has been compared to a fullback, a running back and a lineman by the Packers' defense this week. Then again, it's unlikely players at those other positions would be able to absorb contact and zip a deep pass downfield seconds later, as Roethlisberger does.
Players and coaches say there is a technique for tackling the Steelers' quarterback -- hit him between his chest and knees, then wrap up and hold on until he goes down or the whistle blows.
Bet on the whistle.
"You see quarterbacks who sometimes go down easily, and you can bring him down. But he's one of those guys who will fight and gets out of a lot of sacks, and the sacks that he does give up, he's still standing," Matthews said. "We've got to stay alive, really get after him, and kind of collapse the pocket on him, and force him to not be able to complete those passes where he moves around and breaks tackles."
Roethlisberger also can scramble or put his head down and run just enough to keep defenders off-balance. His long gain is 31 yards this year, and he's often the best bet in short-yardage situations, gaining five first downs in two playoff games this year.
"If you go back to his college tape, he had runs of 50, 60 yards in games. When you see a man of that dimension able to finish scramble runs, I don't care what level and so on, I've always considered him a good athlete," McCarthy said. "More importantly, he's a big man. I don't know exactly what he weighs, but he is someone that we need to do a better job this time around learning off last year's experience."
"You can't just go full speed and reckless," Woodson said. "You've got to kind of break down and be ready to move either way with the quarterback. Because it doesn't take much for a quarterback to just step one foot forward or step one foot back, and you'll miss him completely.
"So you've got to come with some sort of controlled aggression, once you get to the quarterback. And when you get your hands on him, you can't let go. He's got to go down."
"Not many people have the answer to how you get him down. That's why he's been to, what, three Super Bowls the last six years? It's tough," Pickett said. "There's no easy answers."
