Default Steelers defense...

OK... after this week,

we are...

Number 2 against total yards per game.

Number 2 against rush per game.

Number 5 against the pass per game

Number 5 total points per game.


I am not even sure that this is updated for this weekend, which means our numbers might even be better.

Dang we look good on D. Let's hope we hold up this year.

Every year we expect alot of great things from the defense and having the Best defensive coordinator in the league does not hurt.
Our exotic blitzes and having talented players on the D side of the ball, with great depth truly makes us one of the best defenses year in and year out.
Its smash mouth Steeler football!

If we can hold this o line together and stay healthy, I honestly don't think there's a team on our schedule that we are not capable of beating. (especially after watching the games today).

They need to come out and play every game lights out and do it consistantly.

Yep.

half way through the year, both the offense and defense ran out of steam.

Seems that they were worn out for one reason or another.

Anyone know if they are in pads this year in practice?

I know that Tomlin's doing things like giving Hine's and a few other Wednesday's off. Hine's says thats really rejuventates him. I think Tomlin has changed his practice regiment.....he learned from last year.

i think we kick ass.

with that being said, the seelers players had better approach this game as if the bungchodes were the division leaders.

alot of teams who are desperate have come out fighting this year.

hopefully the 06 and 07 seasons have taught the sb calibur steeelers a lesson.

I love having a coach like him...who keeps the same methodology, but makes adjustments based on what he sees, knows. Seems he learned quite a bit last year.
