Even though Pittsburgh's secondary is the weakest part of our defense atleast we aren't possibly the weakest unit in the league.
EDGE: PITTSBURGH, BY A ENDLESS CREVASSE OF SPACE!
And who was beat on those plays? Mitchell, who is no longer on the roster, and Allen, a rookie who had attened all of one practice before being thrust into the lineup. (As a CB....a position which he hasnt played in 3 years)
If you want to evaluate a team based on preseason play at least limit the analysis to the players who will actually be on the field in the regular season. What transpires between backup players really shows nothing about how the team will perform in the games that count.
