Default Steelers #1 Defense

#1 Total Points 227, ppg, 14.2,

#1 Passing offense, 2760 total, 172/game
#1 Yards, 273/game


Sadly our run defense is terrible this year at 99yds/game finishing around #7-9

Also only 27 takeaways this year. Among the bottom 5.

Felt like a down year for the defense, but numbers wise has been really good. Hopefully the turnovers start to show up in the playoffs.

My hope is this defense can step it up and start taking the ball away for the playoffs.

Pass def and run def is great but the key is PPG and takeaways.

Pretty good for an "old slow bunch". Some of the young guys have really stepped it up. The takeaways befuddle me though, maybe we get a healthy dose in the playoffs.

The secondary does well enough, they are still susceptible to being spread out...UNTIL we play man press. Man, I can't believe how AMAZING they play in man press. We won't face any breakthrough running games except maybe Baltimore.

I don't think there is a complete team in the AFC playoffs...so, with our deficiencies we should be okay.

It does crack me up though about our run D. We will finish between 7-10 which most teams would say is amazing but to us...it is sub-par. I LOVE THAT! We are used to 60 yards per game; 70 yards per game and so on. Our past D's have really spoiled us. *I do agree though that the run D has not been good though...just wanted to point out the irony to it*

Well, I like seeing Troy step up his game today. We need him on top of his game for the playoffs. He's our X-factor.

Im really worried about the loss of Allen and probably Clark

McCushion is so slow now, our Pass D is going to take a hit

We might overcome Denver but NE and Bal TEs are going to give us loads of problems

Maybe I'm just being picky, but it's hard to believe our Defense is number one. I would like to see more dominance, particulary turnovers and sacks. I was kind of shocked when I saw we were the number one Defense today.

It says something about the awesome run defenses that we've had around here that 9th in the league is considered "terrible." We're spoiled, truthfully.

I think your right... There are so many other teams around the league that wished they had this problem, lol.
