Default Look who has the number one defense in the NFL

That's right. The Steelers.

I was thinking earlier, and I know this is getting a bit ahead of ourselves at this point in the season, but I honestly think we might be the only team in the NFL that could beat the Packers this year if we were to see a SB rematch.

The Packers Defense has actually been subpar this year, whereas our offense has been tremendously improved. And while the Packers offense is a well-oiled machine, our defense finally showed against the Patriots it is capable of stopping an elite, spread out passing attack. I think we would actually match up well against them, A LOT better than we did last year at least. (Also, the SB win every three years pattern would still be going strong)

Of course, we need to get through the rest of this season and the playoffs first.

Phantom is right. I've been saying it for a while, even before the Pats that we are capable of beating a spread. I think with a healthy team we stand a very good chance of beating anybody in the league. Our defense is capable of securing a lead and our offense can lead us to comebacks against the best defenses. A rematch is plausible but we just need to worry about finishing with a better record than the Ravens right now to give us the best chance

I wish they'd consider sitting Woodley until the playoffs. If we can become dominant without him, then go into the post-season with him at full strength... wow.

Steelers would earn it this year if they were to win it all. Even with the 1 seed, chances are the Steelers would have to go through the Ravens and Pats to the Super Bowl. And then play GB.

Eight of the top ten offenses are in the NFC.

Seven of the top ten defenses are in the AFC.

I think there's a philosophical question that's going to get answered this year.

that defense wins championships?

or that the best defense is a good offense?

its a cyclical argument...

I like the way they're playing now. They seem to be meshing. They're being cautious with Woodley. Playing him a little is better than not at all. He takes some pressure off of Harrison and it forces the opposing offense to account for him. I would also like to see him shake a little bit of the rust off before the playoffs. Great game today. I thought outside of the Patriots game that it's the most dominant performance they have had. The defense is playing much better against the pass compared to last year and I share the opinion of Phantom taht I think our D could really match up well against the Packers O.
