Default Steelers "Should " Have the #1 Rated Defense After the Chiefs...

Total Defensive Standings (YPG):

1. New York Giants 274.4
2. Pittsburgh Steelers 277.4
3. New York Jets 281.6
4. Green Bay Packers 282.3
5. Washington Redskins 288.3

The Giants play the Falcons this week and we play the Chiefs.... Seeing they only have us by 3 yards.... we have a chance to be at #1.... all other games being equal....

For whatever it may be worth.... it might help give the team a little motivational / mental boost...

Does a defence still win championships?

Not necessarily, pretty much EVER good playoff team has a pretty good defense. However, what you need is a very good offense to win championships. So think about it like this...

Defense puts you into the SB.
Offense wins the SB.

the steelers are creditied for giving up 157 points on the year (currently that ranks them 6th with only the colts, bengals, patriots, broncos, & ravens better).

however those 157 points also include 7 tds NOT given up by our defense.

all other teams are giving up about 16 points a game (colts lead with 15.8). our DEFENSE is giving up 12.

thats better than last year and we are w/o polamalu and smith.

I can see your point, but with out a defense like the giants had against the * they would have lost.

The Giants are #1? Teams must be getting nothing running on them because I heard they were last in pass defense on NFL radio this week. We'll need to give up 30 less yards this week to overtake the Giants. 3 yards per game. Last year we were by far the best D. When you looked at yards per game, we were like 252 ypg. The second best was like 282. Then there were 10 teams bunched between 282 and 300 ypg.
That's a dominant defense. #1 by far. This years model is good and can be great. But last years was special.
