Default This years Steel Curtain

I think that this years Steeler D is the Best D that has been in the league since the Steel Curtain on the 70's. I think they are better than the Bears and they are way better the the Ravens D that won the superbowl!!!

The Cardinals were the only team to get over 300 yards if I am not mistaken!!!


All the sacks we had from our LB'S, Plus the Coverage in the Secondary!!! And Nobody could run against us!!!!

And then you Have Dick Lebeau, the greatest asst. coach of all time and hall of famer!!!


the steelers played the toughest schedule this year, top teams all year, no letup's and kept everbody under 300 yds is amazing

Then how about also putting a passing attack that lit you up for 377 as the best passing attack since....

Yes, but the Chargers only had 290 NET Yards. That would be after penalties.

Listen, I wasn't arguing the final result. My point was if you are giving your defense that much respect, then you are also complimenting our pass offense as well.

Based on a season's body of work, this defense is only second to the 1976 Steelers defense.

In that year, they had a team or two light them up for some big yards too.

Yes, this defense is the second best defense the Steelers have EVER fielded.

titans had 300+ too.

i think this steelers is the best since the bears who absolutely decimated their playoff opponents.

we shut ours down but played a little too much "bend but dont break".
