We need at least another Ike Taylor level CB to be able to battle the 5-Wide Spread crap........Teams are only getting better at this offense and the League keeps changing the rules to benefit them.............

And I hope people remember the Packers had Injuries to their WR core too....before they got hurt they were starting to torch us

we are playoff caliber, but not champion caliber with our current corners.

actually I take that back. With an improved o-line and maturation of our your WR corps we can possibly win on offense alone. Our defense is way better than average and should suffice if our offense can light up the scoreboard. We have the quarterback, WR talent, and RB, we just need a better o-line and hope that the WR's matured enough to live up to their potential.

i would prefer to see a better defense, but if we can win through a more efficient offense, i don't care how we do it really. as long as we win the lombardi's, that's all that matters.

Why are the Steeler fans saying we can't win with our current CB situation? We have won two Super Bowls in the last six years and almost won another one. As long as our offense plays well and our defense plays like they do...we will have no trouble.

If your corners are lacking, a team must rely on a pass rush to win games. If your front seven can pressure the QB then he can't stand back there and wait all day to get a receiver open. As long as we are stacked with great linebackers and get some more young talent on the line we can do this...AND WIN.

We need speed and quickness at CB, only Troy and Ike are fast enough to keep up with WR's without having to give them a 10 yard cushion.
