Default Steelers are 5th in Total Defense, 6th in Total Offense

We are also:

3td in Passing Offense (yes, even higher than the Patriots, Ravens, Saints, Cards and Vikings)
3td in Rushing Defense

LINK: http://www.nfl.com/stats/team

I did not expect the 6th in Total Offense after witnessing the Offense's poor performance in that 1st game against the Titans and all the dropped passes vs Chicago. Looks like that Chargers game really knocked us up several places as far as some stats are concerned...
We'll probably be #1 in a few categories after the next 2 games (vs. Lions and Browns)....

Looks more balanced but I want to see that #1 rank on the defense again. LOL

Im gonna get my Tomlin on.

Nothing to look at here. Those figures are for fantasy owners not us. We have work to do and we arent in the buisness for # 1 rankings. We are in the buisness of winning football games and Super Bowls.

The problem is that we are 15th in passing defense.

Don't worry Willie, as soon as Troy returns it will be fixed

After only 4 games I like the balance so far.

I've been saying for some time now, that if it's our defense that's giving us trouble, that's a good thing. The defense will come around and with the offense running at a pretty good rate, I think things are going to be looking really good in short order.

I can't wait for Troy to get back. I just hope he stays healthy when he does return.

And yet we're currently 2-2 and 3rd in the AFCN. Statistical rankings don't mean squat.
