it would be tough to blitz with only 2 big guys up there trying to hold off a center, 2 gaurds and 2 tackels

Yeah, but C'Mon! Just think about it----the Lebeau 2-5!! It would be an Instant Classic with teams all over the league copying it in the next 3 to 5 years. Then BAM! we switch back to the 3-4 and clean house! They won't know what hit them! It will be the dread of Offensive Coordinators throughout the league and Goodell will have to pass another Rule to Combat the Domination of the Pittsburgh Steelers

As long as Lawrence Timmons is not taken off the field I will be happy

actually we do that quite a bit on passing downs, Keisel and Smith being the only down linemen with Lebeau throwing up the crazy blitzes with everyone else. How have you not seen that before?

Only real change you might see in base defenses is I believe Foote and Timmons should play the two LBs in Nickel Package. Wether or not they want to pull Farrior off on third down, thats the question..

I don't get why a lot of you think were going to slide Timmons to outside in the future. He isn't physical enough to play OLB in our 3-4. He would get eaten up by opponent's OTs. I think the reason they brought Foote back was for depth, and in time he will take Timmons' spot and Timmons will take Farrior's spot. Just my opinion, but that's the way I see it happening.

That's right and this is not our best pressure package because the opposing O-line are professional football players and they know how to area block. When you only have 2 d-linemen rushing, it's almost easier to for that o-line to block anyone coming into their area. Where we get pressure is when we overload or the d-linemen take up more than one blocker.
