Default Two Back Attack

so, in this copycat league, all teams are scrambling for a two back attack modeled after the super bowl champion pittsburgh steelers..of course outside of chicago no one has a defense to go with it to compare to ours......anyways, heres hoping the steelers come up with a second back, and soon, or fast willie is going to be limp willie(no pun intended).

I believe Davenport is capable if he can stay healthy.

The league has always been that way about copying other people's success... do you blame them? The Falcons have always or atleast in the last 3 or 4 years had 2 pretty decent backs in Atlanta.. Thats the reason (of course Vick helps also) they have led the league the last couple years in rushing..There are a few people in the league now trying to copy our 3-4 Defense and they are finding out just how hard it is to find those Very Athletic LB's we seem to find all the time it seems like..

I think Davenport will help considerably..however as an Illinois resident I do have to say that Chicago's Defense is a sham. Let Pitt play Greenbay/Detroit/Minnesotta 6 times a year ans see what kind of numbers we put up...The real mettle of Chicagos defense was apparrant when we played them last year. They are maybe a top 10 defense at best.

You guys are underhyping Davenport. When healthy, he is capable of starting for many teams in this league. He is a huge upgrade over the Bettis of the past few years, at the very least.

Plus a change of scenery usually tends to work out for the better. He will now get to run behind our "O" line as opposed to GB's O line.

If he can stay healthy we can have a great two back rushing attack.

Teams have been benefiting from two good backs for decades. There's nothing new about it, nor did the Steelers start it. Right now the best one two punch is in New England with Maroney and Dillon.
