I keep hearing announcers talk about the Steelers vaunted blitz packages, but I don't know how they define blitz because to me that means bringing more than the other team can block. Lebeau virtually never does that.
There could possibly be big changes coming if he stays. If Harrison doesn't return, it isn't too far fetched that we could transition to a 4-3 base defense. After the Pats did it, the East pretty much converted, and it became the new trend. We already have the talent to do it, and it might actually benefit a lot of our younger players, which benefits the team as a whole.
