My knock on Steltz is that he is just a bit slow. This means that in the open field he has to give a bit of extra cushion to the receiver, and work them back into his help from other teammates. However, when the field gets short, there is nowhere the receivers can get to that Steltz can't quick twitch respond to. The result is that in the open field opponents pick on him, but this lulls opponents into thinking that they can pick on him for a score in the end zone. At which point when they go to the well one time too many, Steltz jumps them like an alligator ambushing a gazelle at a watering hole, taking away their hopes for a score along with the ball.
My opinion is based on my recollection that most of Steltz's INT/PBUs happen deep in the red zone. He bends, but doesn't break.

What should you call any : Fumble , Hold , Interception , Three and out , or Sack ?
A " F.H.I.T.S " ? or a J'Marcus ?

I know that not all hits out of bounds are late hits. But I could have sworn that Steltz hit the Giants receiver, not Peanut or whomever the Bear DB was who was out. Even the announcers said that after a couple of looks it was the correct call.
