Over the last couple of years we have probably had the best defense in league and i think its time we give them a name. I know a lot of people are gonna say the "steel curtain" but i think these guys deserve something seperate and i just wanted to know what everybody else thought.

Call me traditional, but as far as I know there is only one name for our defense:

STEEL CURTAIN!

Hey-I have a question about one of your former DCs-Tim Lewis...

When he was Coughlin's DC from '04-'06, they played alot of Cover 2/soft zones, while mostly relying on their front 4 to get pressure. Ultimately, this ended up being the Giants' undoing as the blitz packages were very predictable, and the DBs were badly utilized.

Just curious-wasn't the Pitt D #1 ranked in '01? What was his undoing ultimately?

I think you're alone on that one. Maybe if the 49ers were to sign him, but not the Steelers.

As you know by now our defense this year is one the best... EVER. A recent ESPN article explains this and also explains how our defense this year needs a nickname. We had Steel Curtain and Blitzburgh, but we need to stand out this year. All of the other great defenses in the past had nicknames. This is from ESPN...

Doomsday defense of the Dallas Cowboys, the 1973 No-Name Defense of the Miami Dolphins and the 1971 Purple People Eaters of the Minnesota Vikings. Just mentioning those teams makes it clear that somebody in Pittsburgh had better start coming up with a nickname for this season.

Lets get the suggestions rolling!
