Re: Defense showing its age, and....
I agree Stainless that the injuries to Troy and Harrison are huge, but you have to be able to win with injuries when the offense plays so well. They made Palmer look like Rodgers and that's not due to our players, it's LeBeau. There is an argument to be made that we would have won with Harrison and Troy but I'm not so sure. Giving a WR a 6-10 cushion is basically giving him the catch. We've played that style and lost with both Harrison and Polamalu on the field. I still think that with Harrison and Polamalu we can be a top defense, but ONLY if we abandon the big cushion defense, and there's been few signs of LeBeau doing that.
