Default Our Run Defense is Suffocating

At its rightful place at #1 in the league right now. Win or lose, something I can always take pride in. What's our streak now anyway of consecutive games without allowing a 100 yard rusher? I think we're closing in on the Ravens record of.. 38? I can't even imagine a rusher gaining 100+ on us anytime in the near future

And to think we lost one of the best 3-4 ends in the entire league, Aaron Smith AND his backup! Ziggy and Eason has proven they could get the job done within our front 3 and that's for sure encouraging to any Steelers fan.

Yeah, I think the last time it happened was towards the end of the '07 season against Jax when Aaron Smith went down with the torn bicep.

Damn you Fred Taylor!!

We gotta watch out for Ray Rice sunday though. But if we handled Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson we should be able to handle him

It might , just might, mean the 34 yr old Smith is a tad overrated. Atleast on this board.

It could mean that with the 13th ranked pass defense, its easier to pass on the Steelers, so why bother running.

No, I think it means that our young, first round draft pick, is coming up to speed very fast under the tutledge of the 34 yr old Smith and the rest of the D line.
