Default Defense could face another bad year

Peter Diana/Post-Gazette
Steelers safety Troy Polamalu might be back next season, but a few of his veteran teammates likely won't be.

Too bad we let Lewis and Ta'amu walk…both started for top five defenses and we're left looking for their replacements.

Can't make the same mistake with Worilds and Heyward. Have to get them signed and extended, respectively.

Ta'amu burnt bridges here, and only started for Cards after injuries ahead of him. Cards also play a 1 gap system, so he's beng used differently then we'd ask of him.

Lewis it would of been nice to have, but reading some stories out there he wanted to go back to NO....don't know how true or how hard we tried to sign him.

The good news is, the offense has gotten better, so if 8-8 was doable with the offense absent prior to the bye week, then I'd say 10-6 is doable next season if the offense keeps its stride. It'll also help that some of the young players in the defensive front seven will learn more and improve. What's going to hold the defense back next season is the secondary.
