Default Steelers' D: Best in the league

As of this week, our D is ranked #1 against the pass, #2 against the run, and 1st overall.

Wave them towels!!!

Wave those towels then trade for mine! (see sig)!

But seriously, the D has been awesome, but not just again the run, the blitz's have come non-stop and the QB's just don't have time to throw. Time to do the Hoke-y Pokie!

it's good to see the steelers at #1, but the they haven't exactly played many powerhouse offenses.

Who's a powerhouse offense this year? The Cardinals lead the league in scoring at about 29.5 a game.

Even in our loss the D only let up 13 points (there was a safety in that game)

I keep the magic number at 20. If our Offense gets 21, we win, every time.

I still maintain we are the best defense in the league.

No more Joe Flaccos and Ryan Fitzpatricks Mannings and Rivers ahead. That should tell the story.

Well we may rank 1st in yardage, but yardage does not tell the whole story.

I don't think there's any question we have a top 5, and probably a top 3 defense, but the Titans have a very strong claim to the #1 spot.
