Overall the LB's are making alot of plays for us like usual, but the DB's are making alot more plays....that can also be attributed to Troy hanging closer to the Line as well.
It's not just the 3-4, and not just Pittsburgh. As size of players increases, the responsibilities increase. Jack Lambert would be an averaged sized strong safety today.
