Default Re: Will Steelers' D lead in the stats at season's end?

More 2010 defensive stats:
Opponent's passer rating: 1) Packers 67.2 2) Steelers 73.1
Team sacks: 1) Steelers with 48 2) Packers/Raiders/Chargers with 47
Interceptions: 1) Patriots with 25 2) Packers with 24 3) Eagles with 23 4) Falcons with 22 5) Steelers/Bears with 21

Maybe our pass D isn't as bad as some people are saying.

it's definitely much improved from last year. im also liking what i saw from mundy when troy was out. sure he's no troy, but who is?

ike is good, b-mac is average, gay gets a lot of hate but really is good in the nickel. troy is troy. our secondary isn't bad esp when healthy. depth is a concern though, what happens if ike gets hurt? team might be screwed worse than a polamalu injury, we are thin at cb

One of the two Milli Vanillers commited suicide.

Funny ass thread so I don't mean to be a downer by pointing that out, but sometimes I just feel like typing.

I wasn't sure if it was suicide or accidental overdose. Only the good die young.

Our pass D isnt bad at all, we just let up huge plays, at the worst moment, if we eliminate those few plays, our pass D wouldn't take as much criticism as they do now

actually it is quite the opposite. the one thing they dont do is give up alot of huge plays. they may give up smaller chunks but keep everything infront of them.

steelers only allowed 35 passing plays of 20+ yards which is best in the league. only 7 were above 40 yds. the longest pass play they gave up was 67 yds and it didnt even go for a TD.

the opponents passer rating against them was 73.1 which was 2nd to the packers. and only 6.3 yards per attempt proved to be the stingiest.

21 int tied for 5th and 48 sacks led the league.

some people just expect us to be on a historic pace every single year.

there is much more to the passing defense than just the yardage total numbers. we had one of the best pass defenses in the league.

Well, i didnt really check stats, i just remember the 2 bombs that gave the Ravens most of their passing yardage, the bengals TD with T.O , and that HUGE ravens screen pass after the harrison penalty

In an unrelated note, but related to the defense...

I just remembered this, but I'm too lazy to search through old threads, after the 1st Ravens game, people were chatting on the board, talking about the Steelers not getting a lot of pressure and at the time the Steelers had 12 sacks, and someone said they were on track for 48 sacks... I didn't think they'd actually get 48 sacks on the dot but they did..

I just thought that was funny tehehehe.
