Just a quick scan and this caught my eye:


Defensive Dominance: The Steelers have allowed the fewest
points in the NFL since the beginning of the 2007 season.
Pittsburgh has allowed just 825 points during that span.
The Steelers gave up just nine points in their Week 1 overtime
victory against the Falcons.

The following is a list of the top four teams in the NFL who have
allowed the fewest points since the start of the 2007 campaign:
Team Points Allowed
Pittsburgh 825
New England 892
Baltimore 898
Indianapolis 901

Total Defensive Package: Pittsburgh has allowed the fewest
total yards in the NFL since the beginning of the 2006 season.
The Steelers have given up 18,042 yards of total offense (5,630
rushing, 12,412 passing) since the beginning of 2006. The total
yards against ranks first in the NFL during that span, while the
rushing yards and passing yards each rank third in the league.

Defense! Defense! Defense!: Pittsburgh gave up just 295 yards
of total offense in its Week 1 overtime victory against the Atlanta
Falcons. The Steelers allowed only 58 yards rushing and 237
yards passing against the Falcons. Additionally, they posted two
sacks and had one interception.

The Steelers ranked fourth in the AFC and fifth in the NFL in total
defense in 2009 by allowing 305.3 yards per game.

Holding Their Ground: Over the past nine years, Pittsburgh’s
defense has been among the best at holding its opponents to the
fewest rushing yards in the league. The Steelers allowed just 58
yards rushing in the season opener versus Atlanta this year.
In 2009, the Steelers gave up 89.9 yards per game on the
ground, which was first in the AFC and third in the NFL.
In the past eight seasons, Pittsburgh has allowed an NFL-low
nine 100-yard rushers. Baltimore is second with 15.
Additionally, since 1994 the Steelers have led the AFC in rushing
defense eight times and the entire NFL three times.

To do those things consistently over that time is pretty amazing. This is one consistent organization when it comes to defense.

The thing that stands out to me on that list is the Colts I'd expect the other 3 teams, but I would have thought that Indy would be in the middle of the league. Instead they're only a FG behind the Ravens

That is an amazing stat.

I guess now we should start a thread saying that anybody who wanted to change from the 3-4 to the 4-3 sounds like an idiot. :roll: :roll:

It also wants to make me do mega-penance for complaining about the "LeBeau Cushion". I swear to goodness, my head explodes every time I see them line up 10 yards off the LOS. Especially when the other guys start making 6 yard catches at will.

I've got to be stronger!!
