Re: ripping the ball out - forcing fumbles
To be honest, I don't remember the Steelers ever clawing at the ball in past years. We've always been a very good tackling team under Lebeau, but most fumbles have either came from getting a helmet on the ball or strip sacks (which hasn't happened because there hasn't been much pressure)
I would rather make the sure tackle, but we definitely do need to get back to getting helmets on the football.
