Translation: "Oh no! We can't allow the Steelers' defense to ever be criticized no matter what! Quick! Blame Ben first before anyone blames the defense! That way no one will notice all of the 80 yard scoring drives the defense has allowed!"

the Ravens are certainly having some big problems on defense.

Brownies were one drive away from tying it up. The only difference in the Ravens season thus far is they made 1 more stop than our D has been able to. Giving up a crapload of yards and points though.

With the lack of pressure we're having, I wouldn't have any qualms about doubling both Boldin and Smith. Put Ike and Lewis on Boldin / Put Clark and Allen on Smith, can always switch these combos around too. Put Mundy on Jones. Rush 4 all day. Let Timmons pick up the TE and let Troy be Troy. Maybe he can spy Rice all day and call in Timmons for help. If Pita beats us, then we don;t deserve crap anyways.

I know little about what would be a good scheme on paper - but something gotta work.

We are only 3 games in there is time to make adjustments. I will believe its over when they tell me we are eliminated from the playoffs.

there is still alot of football left to be PLAYED.

teh 8-8 broncos defeated the 12-4 steelers.

the 9-7 giants beat the sweetheart darling 49ers, packers, and patriots on way to a superbowl victory.

i will throw in the towel AFTER we lose the game that eliminates the steelers from playoff competition. no more, no less, just like any other year.
Hear, hear! Well said!!

Until we start pressuring the QB we are irrelevant........

its weird last year we had this problem but in reverse......We couldn't protect Ben for S****

Until we start disrupting the QBs rhythm we'll be a mediocre-to below average team

The more I think about it, we are really just a few adjustments away. I'm not going to sugar coat it: we have high draft picks that are playing "average", injuries are killing us, some of the vets are playing like they should retire, and our D coordinator appears to not see what's happening to his defense. BUT the offense is really good and it's going to keep getting better, especially if Mendy can contribute. The defense showed it can still compete when they played man coverage and shut down the Jets. If we continue to play big cushion zone then it is over. Even the Raiders who were down by 14 points beat the big cushion D, therefore anybody can. When the defense hasn't showed up at all we have lost the shoot out (Denver and Oakland), but I also don't think they have to dominate like they did against the Jets. If the defense adjusts and gets some stops from time to time and plays decent red zone defense then we will win games. The offense doesn't need much help this year, but they need more then they are getting. I'm not optimistic about it, but I'm not throwing in the towel YET.

denver was hardly a shootout. they scored on an interception.

if this team were 2-4 i could understand some of the reaction people are having, but right now at 1-2 i just feel its a bit over-reactionary

You ain't seen nothing yet - wait until the posts if the Steelers lose to the Eagles during the run up to the then "must win" Thursday night game against the Titans

Honestly, it's NOT over.
The defense is playing downright ugly, can't deny that.
The offense looks like it could be close to unstoppable.
Special teams still suck, no surprise there.
It's reasonable to be nervous about this season so far.
The defense is not playnig well, they're making stupid mistakes, and at times intensity and effort seem lacking.
I'll feel a lot better about the prognosis for this season if the D could come up with an impressive game or two, quicklly.
