How about that AFC North defense going 1 (Cincy) 2 (Us) and 3 (Baltimore)

im no rocket scientist but the reason we have #1 pass defense is because houston and baltimore ran all over us....no reason to throw.....give it a lil while we still got to play Brady

I think our recent run def is partly to blame for the good passing def, but i also think Lebeau is changing up his schemes to fix our issues from last season (& SB). Face it, GB and the pats , etc dont have killer running games, so we need to stop that and make those teams beat us with running games. Foster was one big run from being held under 100 yds so get rid of that (which was a blown contain by Woodley) and we win that game most likely. I think our passing def upgrade is by design more than poor running def. We maybe shouldnt be #1 but top ten for sure.

We need to stop obsessing about Brady and the Pats. Yes, we should prepare for that game but we're ignoring the fact that that's only one of sixteen games and the other games also measure the big picture. Not saying the pass D has been amazing but it's been efficient and frankly we did a better job with Scuhab than I thought we would. It's true that Rice and Foster both gouged the run D but this last game especially I was noticing a lot of physicality with the Titans receivers. It did help that they were missing Britt but you don't choose an opponent to be missing their best wideout.

The Pats should be worried about their secondary which is why I think we have a good shot at beating them this year.

I think you proved his point for him...

The Steelers are #1 against the pass because the best QB they have faced this year is ... Flacco? Actually, I think Schaub would have had a chance of looking great if the Texans weren't getting 6 yards a pop running the ball. Hell, he wasn't pressured at all in that game.

I'm glad they've handled their business so far and that they are buying themselves some time to perfect their game before the big challenges come along.

Anybody know why Mundy was playing so much this week?
