View Full Version : Nickle Defense?????

Why are we playing so much nickle? It seemed like we gave up big play after big play on 2nd or 3rd down in this soft ass formation. I get tired of seeing these sorry backup corners getting lit up. No pass rush = complete pass.

I believe the Steelers are doing this to help our Secondary out. The lost B-Mac yesterday and man our replacements were scary bad. Aaron Smith and Brett Keisel are So Important to this Defense that we struggle so much Without Them. Its almost like Lawrence Timmons has been sitting on the bench compared to the way he started out. That is because we dont have Aaron Smith and or Brett Keisel to keep these linemen and FB's off of him.
Just my opinions here, but they are Not Gonna Allow the Big Play and thats why they play so much Nickel Defense. O and the guy from Buffalo that dropped the Winning TD for them . . well he got Deep I guess . . . lol
