Another question: Who do you take away?

Written by Colin Dunlap on .

Been thinking about this for a few days, and I am sure Bill Stewart -- as is customary with any coach -- will go ahead on Tuesday in his news conference and laud just about every offensive player Pitt has available.

But, I have been wondering this: If you could take just one guy away, if you are the West Virginia defense and you have to concentrate your efforts to take away one member of Pitt's offense, who would it be?

Would it be:

-WR Jon Baldwin? The guy sure can go up and get it, makes some tremendous catches up over defenders. Also, I think his over-the-middle talents are a bit under the radar.

-RB Dion Lewis? Sure, much like Noel Devine, he hasn't had the total body of work for this season that many thought he would have, but he is a threat each time he touches the football.

-QB Tino Sunseri? He has struggled at times, and Pitt has sometimes struggled to protect him. But, he has also shown the ability to be the leader of the offense, make so big-time throws and understand when his full capabilities.

-RB Ray Graham? Is this guy a more complete runner than Lewis? A guy who can do more dazzling things, especially against West Virginia's 3-3-5?

-WR Mike Shanahan? Perhaps the most underrated threat on Pitt's offense. There is zero doubt of his penchant for going over the middle and wanting to catch the big pass.


So, who is it? Who do you key on?
