In yards per game, thanks to an offense that is #2 in time of possession. Sort by points per game, and then consider that TOP ranking.

ummm... thats pretty much the same basic formula theyve used all along. plus those "rankings" 4 games into the season are about as meaningful as the power rankings.

the steelers have allowed 12 ppg at home and 2 bad games on the west coast. it was the ball controlling offense that gave up the pick six anyways,

i dont know why people are still pressing the panic button 4 games in.

OK, peace. Not going to argue with Steeler fans on game day.

they just showed the steelers defensive stats with and w/o polamalu since 2009. something like 28-9 with him averaging 14 ppg. and 8-9 w/o him averaging 21 (a full td more).

i think that is the most significant factor and i think troy in his prime is that great of a player.

LT/reggie white/ ronnie lott/deion sanders type of impact.

My eyes are on the Defense tonight.

No Troy. Away game. Bad team. We'll see what Lebeau trots out on Defense. I don't care how good Troy is, you have to adjust without him, and without his Superman in the past, Dickard the Genius has been exposed as ineffective and helpless.

One player out shouldn't make a defense bleed like that. Our Defense isn't that bad.

Yeah but the trouble is that Troy is past his prime, he can't stay healthy for longer than one game and no defense should be so dependent on one player that his absence virtually guarantees a loss.

Also, stats don't win football games.




Other than that, I agree with everything you wrote!
