Default Why all the hating on the defense?

I just want to point out that ATL had five TD drives of 18, 25, 26, 51, and 75 yards ... steelers had 5 TD drives as well of 80,80,88,79, and 66 yards ... i mean what do you expect to do when you give the ball to the team in field goal range every time ... they did wear down a little at the end but other than that I don't think they played THAT bad. the turnovers are what reall killed us and the game shouldnt have even been close.

Not really - except for rushing defense it is mediocre this year

Current AFC team rankings (16 teams)

Scoring 10th
Yards per game 9th
Passing 12th
Rushing 5th

For good measure here are teh coverage rankings

Kickoffs 10th
Punts 12th

I don;t think anyone has an issue with the run D, i think it is more of the Pass D. Has been very suspect this year.

I don't think steelers D played that bad either but the pass D is where the problems are especially when opposing teams receivers are much taller than our corners. the same thing happened with the charger receiver's!! Crumpler is a bull, taller and bigger. What did he end up with like 4 touchdown, Hard to stop when they start on the short side of the field..

Well, it's not that the defense is playing poorly, it's just that they are not playing 60 minutes. Altough the fact that the recievers are sometimes taller than the corners can be an issue, but that depends on their height in the vertical jump.
Good news is that we might have Joey Porter back soon. Which he's been pretty active on the sideline, but we need him back.
I think that the defense just needs to work on their problems more. If I might say so myself, they were having a small tackling problem in the last game, but that can be fixed.

Oh well, we'll see on Sunday. Anybody flying out to the game?
