Default Defense Misses Porters Fire!!!!

I know his on the field play had decline. I know he probably wanted more money than the Steelers wanted to pay. But after watching that game I believe that the D misses his intensity. There were times when it just seemed like I was watching a walk through in the first half. Even madden stated more than once that it looked as though Denver was playing at a faster pace than the Steelers.

The Steelers crazy-run-around-fly-to-the-ball defense did not show up. I know there are leaders on the D. But I don't see anyone that runs there mouth like Porter and the other players fed off of that. When he talked trash they got fired up. Even some players said he was their leader and would be missed.

I don't know if it was Dick's play calling or just uninspired play. But the feeling that you usually get (Steelers are going to kick but) when the team is on the road was missing from kick-off.

Care to explain last year then? When the Steelers D had this same 3rd down problem when Porter was here?

Wow, you guys are harsh!

Joey may not be doing the Dolphins any good this year, but he's still one of my favorite Steelers. They may not have won everytime he got fired up, but knowing he was there always made me feel better. Were you the same bunch that boo'd Greg Lloyd when he came to Three Rivers as a Panther? Will you actually Boo Peezy when he comes to Heinz? I sure hope not.

Ha...little too inductive there. Steelers had a lot of problems last year. If 1 man's intensity could turn around an entire defense in a year as bad as last? right...


well I dunno about the D...but I miss joey. I've hated him at times, his mouth and the publicity stuff really annoyed me, but he is a hell of a pass rusher...where is our pressure?

we seem to have a few of these kinds of games a year.. last year it was vs baltimore twice, saints, chargers and falcons. in 2005 the colts and bengals and in 2004 the giants and ravens. for some reason our defense sleepwalks through some games and completely dominates others. obviously there were a lot fewer of these games in 2004 and 05 than in 2006. hopefully we follow the trend of the 2004 and 2005 season this year.
