Default Re: Steelers Sunday / The secondary: A long, hard fall

As bad as our secondary was, I still think they need to address the DT/NT position first.

DL's 3-4 scheme is predicated on several things, in this order:

1) Stopping the run and making opposing team one-dimensional.
2) Take away the big plays.
3) bring the pressure to speed things up for opposing QBs.

I don't think our fall from grace was more evident than in the way our run defense (normally an "automatic thing" for Steelers fans) went from being the best to one of the worst.

I mean, they let a frigging QB run 94 yards for a TD.
