Default Spence or Williams?

I noticed Willams has taken Spence's place in the nickel, but Spence still starts in the base defense.

IMO, Williams is a little better and should be playing over Spence.

Thoughts?

I agree with Ed Bouchette. Move Timmons back to mack and start Williams at buck.

I thought that is what was going to happen this season before they drafted Shazier. Williams more of a thumper than Spence, but I think Spence is still a bit quicker, even with the injury.

I agree with Bouchette. Williams is the most physical LBr on this team outside of Harrison. He is a liability in pass coverage but man can the guy lay wood, and mix it up. Free your best playmaking linebacker up...do so old school style with a traditional thumper.

There were two camps prior to the draft: those wanting some sort of DB, and those who wanted an ILB.

Interestingly, on the SteelersFever draft poll, CJ Mosley was the choice that Steelers fans wanted.

Shazier is already a huge part of this defense imo, one thing i noticed is when he's in the lineup our defense looks pretty good actually. Without, well, we have performances like vs the Jets & TB

I really don't think the D was the issue in the Jets game. Hold a team to 20 points, with our offensive fire power, we should win that game everytime. After the first series, they did a solid job of stopping the run, against a good running team with a mobile QB.

Although, I do agree with you, Shazier is going to be a great playmaker, and the D looks better when he is in the game.
