Default LeBeau dreams up a new defensive package

To say that defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau eats, sleeps and breaths football is not an understatement.

The mastermind behind the Steelers defense that was once again ranked number one in the NFL last season laid out a new defensive package for the team at OTAs on Tuesday and it came to him the night before.

He gave us a new defense today that he thought about last night when he was in bed, said an amazed James Farrior. He drew something up for us today. We expect stuff like that from Coach LeBeau.

This offseason is no different. We probably have about 10 new calls right now. They are going to keep coming. Its the same every year, new calls in and tweaking stuff to make us better. He has a great mind.

While the players do come to expect this kind of thing from LeBeau, they know how lucky they are to have him working his magic on the defensive scheme.

He is constantly thinking of ways we can do better, said defensive end Brett Keisel. We put in a whole new package today that the wizard came up with last night. He was making some potion and somehow these Xs and Os came up and it worked really well today so I am sure its something we will use.

Keisel, who credits LeBeau and the other Steelers coaches with the success he has had in his career, knows that the new ideas will keep coming week after week because LeBeau is not someone who will ever let the team rest on their laurels.

He is never satisfied with where we are, said Keisel. The last few years, I think three out of the last five, we finished number one here and its never enough for him.

He sometimes shows us this ring he has and its the Super Bowl XL ring and its never enough. He wants to have 10. Once he has 10 he will have to start putting them on his toes.

Coach Lebeau is a defensive mastermind and I'm sure the wheels never stop turning. How blessed our D is to have him as their admiral and how lucky we are as Steelers fans to be able to watch our guys incorporate these new dynamic schemes into their play. Hurry up season and get here!

Cool! This is what I like to hear. We're always one step ahead of 30 of the 31 other teams (excepting the one that steals plays and playbooks).

He's probably pretty miffed that we "only" finished 2nd in run D to the Vikes.

Its so awesome to have such a great coach in Lebeau, and even better to see just how much his players admire and play for him...

So much for the opposing team studying game film......The Steelers defense is the hardest to gameplan against with so many weapons in the right places. They can triple team Harrison and leave Woodley unblocked or they can max protect and not have enough time to get anyone open!

I don't know if they will try that, leave Woodley open and someone is likely to die
