Default #1 Defense By Smoke & Mirrors

Only reason this D is ranked #1 is because the Offense leads league in TOP.

Just got schooled by a guy that has not even been an offensive coordinator for a week.

Also an easy schedule. Only one game all year against a top 8 QB.

Ranked 19th if you adjust for strength of schedule.

One of the worst offenses since 1929 is still taking them to school. Lebeau can't adjust.

Our offense left the stadium twenty minutes ago and our DEFENSE is doing the work to keep us in this thing.

Well holy shit. Offense sure isn't helping the D, that's for sure. Considering our offense is at the hospital, it's understandable.

This guy never has anything nice to say about the Steelers. Are you even a fan? The way the front 7 played in the second half could only be described as dominate. There weren't sacks, but the pressure provided in overtime was enough to cause the interception.

Really tired of your negativity. Let me guess, I'm acting 13 again.
