I'd take that over a top rated defense that doesn't turn the ball over, doesn't pressure the qb, and allowed Tennessee , Oakland , Denver and Cincy to come back and win last minute on them.
Just because the defense ends the other team's drive with a late punt rather than a turnover doesn't mean it is a bad defense- it just means the offense is going to have to work harder to score on a longer drive. No it is not the 2008 or 2010 defense.
Steelers defense is inarguably a top 5 defense.
Steelers offense is inarguably mediocre.
