That was something I noticed during this game; better tackling. Even though the Steelers gave up a lot of third down yardage, I saw a lot of good fundamental tackling. The third down woes I'd more ascribe to the new guys being in plus the fact that Brees and Colston are really really good. No one gave those guys their 6 wins, they earned them by being good, after all. Colston is ROTY good. But I saw Steelers going to the ball on every play, and I saw good one-on-one containment.

Is there a stat/record for most yardage ever given up on third down? - If so, I think the Steelers will break it this year - besides the turn-overs, the number of third down conversions we have allowed this season is staggering ...oh well - I will take a win no matter what - it's good to see a game with no costly turn-overs!!

Like I have been saying... it is 2003 all over again. Remember the problem they had getting off the field on 3rd down back then?

Only this year... Maybe we can fix it, and make something of this season. Seems like we almost have it on track.
