More press coverage. 12 to 15 yards off the ball and Manning, Brady, Breeze, Rodgers will smoke any team.

Got to get used to the facts we wont have Troy around for full seasons, Harrison is on his last leg (literally), and that there are areas on need to be addressed.

Don't listen to Warren Sapp, mostly because he's been wrong about our "D" ever since, and during, our last SB('08).
Actually, and unfortunately, it was our "O"/Ben who dropped the ball against GB in our "other", and more recent SB.
But hey, that's another story.

Actually, it was Mike Wallace who quite literally "dropped the ball" in our last Super Bowl loss. But you're right, that's a story for another time.

That is one we should have won. Can't go back but that is a superbowl that should have been Pittsburghs.

Still not impressed with the Defense for 3 years. Our back four and nickel are just trash... btw Mark Sanchez is the definition of a shit /overated QB and he's 4/5 with a TD.

old and slow is definitely not the problem. i felt like in the Denver game, there was just no aggresive feeling or play there, not sure if the altitude was a factor, but it definitely wasn't the Steelers D that i have watched in other games in mile-high stadium. of course, it could have been key injuries, early season jitters, high altitude fatigue, other factors we don't see as spectators. i did see moments of real defensive aggression in the game against the jets today, so it definitely isn't the old and slow trashmedia argument.

it may also have had a lot to do with the fact that Peyton Manning is a helluva lot better than Mark Sanchez...
