Default Re: The DL dilemma

I think it's comical that some fans think Dick LeBeau is somehow the problem here. He is probably the best coordinator of all time, offensive or defensive. His scheme has covered up not having dominant talent, particularly in the secondary for much of his career. The Steelers are a big time pass rusher and a cornerback with ball skills away from being a great defense that also gets turnovers.Woodley can be that guy if healthy. If Harrison comes back and is healthy, they become monsters again. In the secondary, only Polamolu has good ball skills and actually catches the ball when thrown to him. If Lewis or Allen improves in this area, they will be very dangerous. I know these are big "ifs" when talking about health with veteran players, but this can happen with the guys we already have. Find a replacement for Larry Foote that is stronger at the point of attack with good coverage skills, and this team is scary good(I know, a Timmons clone. I'm allowed to dream).
