Default Dungy calls out Steelers defense

"Your young QB gives you a lead in the 4th quarter and you can't hold it again. "

2006: Started 2-6. Finished 6-2. 8-8.

2009: Started 6-2. 0-3 in the second half of the season so far.

Reverse 2006? At this pace, I think this will be worse than 2006.

I wonder how the team lives with the fact that they have putting up some of the worst title defenses of the decade once again? Even the 2001 Ravens made the playoffs.

Eh, still sticking by them though.

The 3rd and 22 play where the Ravens picked up 17 was unacceptable. Our D is so beat up though. They played a month longer then any one else last year (besides the Cardinals) and we're missing Smith and Troy and Timmons has been hurt all season.

Deshea has fallen off of the face of the Earth though. He has gone from a veteran leader and a good nickle back to over the hill and a liability on the field in no time. I've always been a fan of his, but its time for him to retire and for Tomlin to replace him with Mundy in nickle formations.

I don't understand why Farrior was on the field in the first place to get isolated covering Ray Rice. Once Rice went in motion and Farrior went with him...i knew it was over.

James Farrior is not capable of covering a back any longer. He was the one who blew the tackle against the Bengals on a 4th down play in week 3.

It's time to take him out of that role.

I don't buy the "we played one month longer than everybody else" argument because other teams have at least defended their championships honorably this decade.

With that said, I'm glad that somebody in the media is finally pointing out that it's the defense that's ultimately letting the team down instead of Roethlisberger.

I completely agree with Need4Sweed I knew they were going for Ray Rice as soon as he went in motion and saw "speedy" James Farrior match up against him

Could someone tell me if we were in base, nickle or dime on that 4 & 5. Something just didn't seem right when you have an obvious passing situation (coming out of a T.O. nontheless) and Farrior left in man coverage against a back who happens to be the leading receiver on the team. If possible i would have came out of that T.O. in a dime, f-it beat me with my best coverage guys on the field.
