LeBeau, Capers talk QBs

DALLAS -- Two of the great defensive coordinators in football will be on opposite sides of the field Sunday in Super Bowl XLV.

Pittsburgh's Dick LeBeau is the architect of the zone-blitz scheme and is in his 38th year of NFL coaching. His Steelers defense ranked No. 1 in points allowed and rushing yards allowed and No. 2 in total yards allowed this year. Green Bay's Dom Capers helped LeBeau bring the zone blitz to full force in Pittsburgh in the early 1990s and is former head coach at Carolina and Houston. Capers' Packers defense ranked second in points allowed and fifth in yards allowed.

Here are both of them discussing the challenge of stopping the opposing quarterback in Sunday's game.
