Let's focus only on the things that fit within the agenda de jour that the Steelers' passing defense sucks.
Or ignore the fact that opposing QBs have a 100.9 rating against this defense (25th in the league), 62.4% completion rate (18th in the league), thrown only 1 INT (28th in the league), been sacked 8 times (24th in the league), thrown 8 TD passes (19th in the league).
The defense is allowing 22.2 points a game (16th) while the offense is #2 in TOP.
If the offense goes into a slump and has a series of 3 and outs, do you trust this defense?
