Default final defensive statistics- (steelers dont sweep)

total defense- steelers #1 = 237/game (ravens 2nd- 262)

points per game- steelers #1 = 13.9/game (titans 2nd- 14.6)

rushing- steelers #3 = 80/game (minn 1st- 76, balt 2nd- 78)

passing- steelers #1 = 156.9/game (phil 2nd- 180)

so we finish 1-1-3-1 and i still think we have one of the great defenses of all time.

maybe not the best, but the numbers dont lie.... easilly top ten (and better than the 91 eagles considering our record and schedule).

Our D is incredible and you're right - the numbers don't lie. Overall - this D is one of the best I can remember in the last 25+ years.

156.9 ypg passing and 237 ypg total. wow. I wonder how that stacks up all time.

with the toughness of the schedule and the underachieving offense 12-4 is a tribute to how good our D really is. If Ben can take care of the football in the playoffs we have an excellent shot at going all the way thanks to this D.

I'll forgive them for not sweeping if they go ahead and get a shut out the next 3 games!

Tremendous defense, hopefully the best is yet to come & then it will be able to truly cement it's place in history.

Credit to the all the players who stepped up when injuries occured, Hampton, Kiesel, Deshea, McFadden, Clark, were all injured at one point or another during the season but it didn't ultimately matter one bit.

As long as they take care of business, I'll be happy.

Easily one of the best defenses I have ever seen.
