Default Dick LeBeau

Now that the teams have figured out how to counter Dick's defensive schemes, do you think he will come up with new schemes this season. Now, I am not going to blame him for the SB loss. But I do think he could have done better against the high potent GB offense. I wonder why he has not addressed the DBs (slowness) issue yet. It's sort of ironic that both Dick and Mike T. have been DB players and coaches in the past.

I believe we will be fine at the season of the season. Teams will probably throw 40 plus times a game on us and that will wear the Defense down.
Fortunately our schedule is weaker than normal. We can handle average teams.

My understanding is that there are already new blitz packages in place, but that is nothing new. I would say the secondary problems are less about LeBeau and more about the drafting policy in place by the FO - they take the best player available rather than reach for a position of need. And, of course, we aren't going to make the big FA splash either.

Hopefully, one or two of these youngsters - Lewis, Brown, Butler, Allen, or even Warren makes a splash this year.

Yeah - LeBeau really should have told Polamalu and Harrison not to get hurt before the Super Bowl

Not very many teams have figured out his schemes. The fact that the type of offense that beats us is the same is not a coincidence but still most teams can't beat us with it. The Pats always beat us with it, the Packers have ONCE, but nobody else is able to beat us using that offensive style. We are not going to struggle against just any team that spreads the field, goes 2 TE, etc., but the Pats and at least once the Packers, have been able to show that if a really good team uses those plays that they can beat us. That being said, I hope he did a lot of new stuff for if we play a capable offense that spreads the field like the Packers, and maybe the Colts and Falcons. I hope we have a total different game scheme for Brady this year.

1) lebeau comes up with new defensive schemes EVERY season. theres a reason why he is pushing 75 years old and still one of the top assistants in the league (highly regarded as a mastermind).

up to 20% of his playbook is "new" (or taken off the shelf) every season. yet another reason why he prefers experienced players and why his system is so difficult to learn and master.

our secondary is no slower than any other secondary. infact in the last 5 games ive seen the steelers play in we've defeated d. revis and asomugha with the dream team.

2) troy and ike are 2 of the fastest players in the nfl at their respective positions. an offensive player always has an advantage because they know where they are going and a defender in coverage has to make a decision to follow in a split second.

theres a reason why 40 times are measured at the combine. a split second is the difference of a cb who runs a 4.30 getting drafted in the 1st round and a cb who runs a 4.80 never playing a snap in the nfl.

3) lebeau and tomlin have been coaches on the sidelines in a combined 9 superbowls (just 2 together as steelers) dating back all the way back to joe montana when tomlin was riding big wheels. i think they know what they are doing.

Lets not forget, do you really think Dick would just throw out new stuff during pre season, or any coach for that matter.

Aaron Rodgers, as good as he is, actually played one of the most perfect games a QB could play. Had his receivers not dropped passes, he may have had a crazier game. He was making passes in areas I havent even seen Tom Brady and Peyton Manning make. If he was just on his A game instead of his A+ game, Steelers probably win. Dick Lebeau is the coach too, he isnt playing.
