I have yet to hear an explanation from a reputable source in the know as to why our defense is so horrible. Some plays it looks like our D-line is just getting blown off the ball... others it looks like our LB's are too slow or easily blocked. Our ILB's were really struggling to get to the outside early in this game. Then on pass plays we struggle to get pressure and our corners seem to beat like a drum when left alone. The loss of Troy's speed is really glaring as well. I just don't see an easy fix on defense.
Steelers not playing great D anymore is the same reason why defenses suck in the league. And we got a taste today on exactly why. Clark hits, Mundy hits. Mundy hit from 2 weeks ago. Every single defensive player these days think before they do now. It is all about not getting fined or penalized. Goodell has neutered defenses in this league and the biggest effected are the two best defenses of the last decade, Ravens and Steelers.

Maybe we should trade Wallace for some Defensive players? I mean lets be honest, Wallace can't catch anything unless it hits him in the numbers. His ego is is too damn big as well.

Also it's sad to say Polamalu is done and needs to retire after this year.

Since Peyton Manning picked the secondary apart in the first game, it has been apparent that the Steelers need help in that area. As a matter of fact, the entire defense looks like they are getting a little bit older, and a little bit slower. However, having James Harrison back was a big boost. He got the pressure on Michael Vick, causing him to make some bad throws and that played a big part in the outcome of the game.
The Steelers were able to move the ball on the ground with Mendenhall back. So, hopefully the running game continues to improve. They will be going nowhere without it.
And, hopefully Todd Haley continues to adjust his offense in order to let Ben Roethlisberger, and the wide receivers make the plays that they are capable of.

Well our secondary has always sucked. You don't need a good secondary when you can pressure the QB on the opposing team. This was the first game I've seen us get to the QB this year.

What more can you ask from our offense? They've been tearing it up all year. If the running game continues we'll be pretty damn dangerous. We just need our D to play average or better.

How about eliminating the bad snaps, stupid penalties, and dropped passes?

This crap about "If Vick doesn't fumble" makes me ill. If Ben hits wide open Heath, if Cotchery doesn't trip on his own feet, if Mendy doesn't fumble out of bounds...We should have cremated the Eagles in that game. Don't tell me the offense is doing great. The offense sucked eggs in the first quarter and couldn't finish off the game the way they should. Good thing Harrison is back and Timmons had a hell of a game. Yes, the secondary is a problem, but the offense should have given us at least 5 TD's in that game.

Exactly and the refs don't help a bit either. They always manage to see us holding on offence but never see the defence doing the exact same thing. The Eagles D should've been flagged at 6 times that I saw. I guess this is how the season is gonna be again, but as long as we win, f.... um

And how bout the throwing of AB's shoe, shouldn't that be a delay of game penalty?

If AB wasn't butter fingers we score again. If Cotchery didn't trip over his own feet we score again. If Wallace *did* trip over his own feet, he catches that floater Ben lofted to him.

Yes, Vick left 7 points on the field with that fumble. The Steelers left at least that many with their own mistakes.
