Polumalu is finally healthy and back to normal, you cant complain that he has played 3 games this season and has 3 INT's.

I feel its all heart at this point. The line was practically the same last season in the 38-7 win and they gave up only 2 sacks. So if the players adjust and go out with the mindset of domination and play like there getting paid millions, they can pull out a good game against the ratbirds.
The Steelers right now have allowed a whopping 38 points, or 12.7 points per game. If the season ended today, that would top the 2004 team which allowed just under 16 points per game, and last year's team that average just over 16 PPG. Now granted, they still have some pretty powerful offensive teams left on the schedule, but if that isn't better, then I don't know what is.

Yes, but it would be a little less per game just for the fact that the Texans scored 14 after we took most of our starters out, but that's agreed.

Its def. too early to completely judge because we have a tough schedule full of offensive teams and after seeing how we play against then we can judge our defense.

I think its a matter of line identity. This line was drafted to help move the ball by running. Specifically powered with a big back with incredible vision of tight spaces, punishing delivery to second and third level backs and a lightness of feet which allows quick cutbacks. Now they are being asked to block for a different kind of runner and protect a passer. In my opinion Tomlin and Arians are not going to abandon their hope of converting the offense over to suit the QB instead of the HB. They will continue to run a scheme that doesnt suit our linemans natural abilities. Why? Because thats what a lot of you Steelers fans want. Big Ben is making 110 million for a reason. Mendlehall and Sweed were taking for a reason. The Steelers under current ownership typically stay the course no matter the bumps. Allow Tomlin and company the same courtesy their bosses allow them...patience.
