Default Re: Farrior: Steelers ‘couldn’t stop anything’

When you have a defensive scheme that is designed to allow the opposing teams offense to do what it wants to to, that is a recipe for desaster. The patriots bread and butter has always been the dink and dunk with brady. Sure I know that changed a little with Moss, but not much. I know Lebeau's system has worked, but not very well against the patriots. And I wonder if it's a lack of confidence in the db's that causes him to virtually never bring more than 4 or 5 to rush the qb.

it is the reason steelers TRADED UP to draft a safety in the 1st round of 2003.

again, this is nothing new, its just that so few teams acutally have the players to execute it.
Excellent Post. Remember it all too well. Just like people in this game wanted them to blitz more. Remember the Anthony Smith game? We got burned and used the blitz heavily.
