Default back up D

i dont think the backups are competing cause they are playing like they already made it. it disapoints me that every third down ends up being a first down after the next play. porter was all over the place but harrison isnt like that. our back ups seem like they arent playing like a team, and there have only been 2 sacks in the game....that is horribly sad.

We won't show our blitzes in the preseason. Why give teams a hint for the regular season? That's why we only have 2 sacks.

i think the other teams probably have enough film of our blitzes that we wont have to worry about giving them "hints".

You are seeing basic formations only.....

...and dont forget preseason philosophy..When you have a team that is pretty much "set" at the majority of the positions...some coaches could care less about wins then they care about trying out some of the backups to see how they have pickuped the system or play at game speed. Other coaches want the wins to build confidence, so they tend to keep their starters in longer.
..teams that suck are up for grabs...new players in/out..starters in/out...they are just looking for cohesion.

i have to disagree, everyone knows that we play the 3-4 zone blitz every game. we are
0-2 (like it matters) in the playoffs because of the D. it might just be the preseason but i still want pitt to win.

I think we all would like to win...but that defense you've seen the 1st two games is only about 33% of the total package....teams dont tip their hands in August...they just dont

The first team had better practice on wrapping up and finishing tackles.

Exactly,.....we're showing opponents a very "vanilla" package. We're a "pressure" Defense that forces opposing teams into mistakes. The thing is,...this pressure is gained by scheme and not just personel. Bottom line,... when coach Lebeau is not going after opposing Qb's,.......they have time to pass and our corners will give up big plays. Gone are the Day's of Rod Woodson, Deion Figures (even a young Willie Williams). The new cat's are solid,.....but with the exception of Troy and POSSIBLY B-Mac and Anthony Smith,.....our secondary is STILL our achilles heal.

EXACTLY... i dont think people give enough credit to Lebeau and his schemes. People tend to think it is the players themselves that are great. It is the NFL and everyone is athletic and has talent obviously, but i think our secondary shows that when we arent Blitzing or are not able to get pressure on the QB even when we do Blitz... well we just arent that good. And in saying that, it is exactly why we dont overpay for defensive players who cant cover someone unless the Blitz packages are working on all cylinders. We cant overpay for LB's who cant get to the QB as well as DL who cant hold up two players so the linebackers can get free.
