Default After 8 games.. whats ur concerns..

1. 3rd down defense

If we dont sure up this 3rd down defense, its gonna get worse as we get to the postseason and make our run for a championship. We stop them on 1st down, stop them on 2nd down, and then let them convert on 3rd down.. That has to stop !!!


2. Injuries.. Ben, Bus, Parker, Farrior, ....

We have got to get healthy, plain and simple. Our depth is stepping up, but we are running out of it.

3. Secondary gives up some big plays

They play this bend dont break style this year so far...but I want the 3 and out ..6 and out defense back in a big way. Keeping teams outta the endzone is key and we're doing that..but damn, i hate seeing them march down in between the 20s

reapeated injuries to our qb, lbs and rbs. fix that and everythig else will take care of itself. every opponent is playing their best ball against the steelers and if they wanna be champs they will have to grind it out against the tuffest every team has to offer. every dog has their day and they all wann have it against the steelers.

My big concerns are pretty much the same as Blitz's. Today we went 0/8 converting third downs. That needs improved. Our third down defense is looking pretty bad. The secondary isn't doing as well as I would like. Injuries are pretty rough so far.

It's been more than 8 games that the Steelers have had that problem. It's looking more like the past 3 or 4 seasons, to be quite honest.

Oh and I forgot to add that the Steelers Special Teams have been god awful for the last few years, too.

Better Red Zone TD to FG ratio

Better Offensive 3rd Down Conversion Rate

Winning the division and not letting any Wild Card scenarios leave the Steelers at home.

Once everyone is healthy, we're good to go. That's why we need to finish either 1st or 2nd, to get that bye so everyone can rest up.
