The Steelers have enough good players to win with either package, whether the 3-4 or 4-3.

Six SB's and at least a couple with both packages.

There's alot of history of winning with both.

Quite contrary. Tomlin has indicated that he likes this particular 3-4 and states that IT IS Pittsburgh.

Even after he retires they will run the 3-4. In a 4-3 Polamalu wouldn't be able to roam and that is one of the keys to our defense. Our personnel is built for the 3-4 and it would be a huge mistake.

Butler is the heir apparent though, he turned down D-Coord. jobs with two teams this year and last year because I think he was told he was going to be put in charge after LeBeau called it quits.

There is a huge difference in winning a Super Bowl in the 4-3 when your front seven consist of:

LC Greenwood, Holmes, Dwight White, Mean Joe Greene, Andy Russell, Jack Hamm, and Jack Lambert versus Aaron Smith, Casey Hampton, Brett Keisel, James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons, James Farrior and LaMarr Woodley.

I am not downgrading our present day players but the linebacking core and defense lines don't match up. If we have those same caliber players then we could do it but I wouldn't compare our present front seven with the front seven of the 4-3 of old.

First off, I can say a lot of teams play the wrong front seven package for dumb reasons. I think the Steelers have committed to the 3-4 for years and built on that concept . thus the Steelers have a great 3-4 package still based on the talent on the team. So keep at it.

If the roster indicates a change then do it........so are 3-4 is STEEL

it won't happen, but it's better than the 3-8 defense lebeau has become so fond of

Doesn't really matter when you rush 4 95% of the time anyway.
