Default Steelers Defence Really that bad? ranked 4th in league

Hard to believe but we are now ranked #4 in league in total yards allowed, our are expectations too high? i don't call a good defensive football team unless they get under 250 yards per average per season.

what are your thoughts on the 4th ranked defence, is this league going to super high scoring high offensive games?

They were tied for 12th in the league in total points allowed; 2nd to last in the NFL in points allowed in the 4th quarter. That is a HUGE reason why we are 9-7 and not playing any more football until August.

I believe the Pack was #1 against the pass when Ben went for 500+ against them. So much for rankings.

You have to Finish a game and put the other team out with a big turnover late, a drive killing stop or a crushing hit that makes the other team just pack it up.

we didn't get those things in 7 of our games this year. 9-7 it is.

big whoop.

If they don't show up at times we need them the most (last 15 seconds of 4th quarter) then they aren't a great defense

it pains me to see the bengals ranked above us in every defensive statistical and that they are playing on nbc next week not us :@

I think our defense was tired when the fourth quarter came around, partly due to many 3 and outs by our offense during a 5 or 6 game span when we lost three games to you know who.

Doubtful, seeing as our offense ranked 4th in TOP. And since they had such a "cupcake" training camp, don't see how that could have been it either.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.'" - Mark Twain

After a season like this being statistically ranked fourth doesn't offer much a lot of comfort.
