Default Re: Don't believe hype with Steelers' 'D'

During Lebeau's Early years in his second stint in Pittsburgh, his Defenses were pretty good. 2004-2008 were mostly solid years.

From the onset of 2009, this is where the Defense developed a nasty habit of collapsing down the stretch. The first signs came in 2007, but then it was treated as an aberration then because of 2008's fantastic performance.

From 2009 to the present, the "Great" Defenses of ours have made mediocre Quarterbacks look amazing. The 2008 was great, but the 2010 and 2011 teams definitely were overrated.
