Something tells me Sean Spence - as remarkable as his story is - won't be played out in Pittsburgh.

I think that Spence is the new breed of ILB.

It's a good problem to have: too many LBs.

Hey, maybe we can adopt the Broncos' 4-3 and have LT, Williams and Spence on the field. Then we can use JJ in the same fashion they use Von Miller.

Problem, meet solution.

I'm pretty sure PFF has Williams graded out as one of the worst starting ILBs in the league.

he has been struggling. Need proof? They re sign Sylvester Stevenson.

PFF graded him as one of the best ILBs in the preseason. In fact, the best.

They signed Sylvester because we lost 2 ST guys.

what does that have to do with anything? This isn't preseason. He is playing against grown man now. Not college undrafted free agents who are currently working at 7-Eleven.

I know, I know. I realize that it's just preseason that he played well, but he's far from why we're having issues on defense right now. He's having issues tackling, but then again, who isn't right now?

exactly. You commented that he was playing very well. I just threw it out there that actually he isn't. And Sean Spence will probably go through the same type of growing pains as well, but he is more talented and had an extra year with his nose in the books.

Yeah. The Broncos defense is definitely one to copy. I love the way they shut down the cowboys last week... and the Ravens in the playoffs last year.
