Default Just how good was the Steelers run D this year?

The Steelers gave up 62.8 rush yards per game (legendary) while Chicago gave up 90.1. thats 27.3 yards difference. The #20 team gave up 115.7 which is still smaller than the gap between 1 and 2. thats how good this run D is.

Best run defense I have seen in my time watching the steelers. In 2008, that was the best Pass defense I had seen.

I can't remember who posted this (Tony?), but in another thread someone said that this years Steelers D has the 5th best run defense of all time. 62.8 sounds about right for that lol.

And weren't the others shorter seasons, one may not have been. But I thought 3 might've been shorter seasons, not doing it in 16 plus 1 so far, and really its 60ypg now after the spanking to rice and co.

I remember hearing that too, they were talking about it during one of the games or something. I think they said that the only other modern team ahead of us is the Ravens team that won the superbowl, and they gave up maybe a yard less per game.
