    Maybe it's not possible in this era of the NFL, but the truly transcendent defenses, whether the Steel Curtain in the Mid '70's (the late '70's teams won games on offense), the '85 Bears, Parcells'...

    Rob Ryan is 51... the Cowboys replaced him with Rod Marinelli, who's 65. If the Steelers were to go the same route, they'd be looking for a 91 year old DC. Just saying...

    The key to a great defense has always been a ball control offense. Look at all the years the Steeler D was #1 in yards allowed, and you'll typically see an offense that was at, or near, the top in...

    Two personnel issues on the DL that I'm wondering about as I read here; 1. how big a mistake was Ziggy Hood in 2009? Nearly everything I read prior to the draft said he was strictly a 4 - 3 DT who...

    The problem with this stat is that you're looking at the screen game as a pass like any other downfield throw. In reality, it's more like a running play... an evolution of the passing game on the...

    Brad Wing's performance... the tiniest little things can often have a huge impact on winning. I can't tell you how many times I've watched the team play, exchange 3 and out drives with punts, and...

    To answer the question originally posed, I think Pouncey is overrated. He ranked as ProFootballFocus' 12th best center in 2012, the last year he played. He is going to command, and receive, premium...

    Troy's style of play has always been dependent on having a very effective "stay at home" free safety playing in tandem with him. For most of his Steeler career, the "Robin" to his "Batman" has been...

    As an FSU guy who follows the program closely, I'd be very leery of Benjamin at 15. He's got a definite boom or bust quality about him... the physical talent is off the charts in terms of potential....

    This was made apparent when watching the last gasp drive attempt in SB XLV. In XLIII, Stonio stepped up and played like a #1... when he asked for the money, at least he had demonstrated he deserved...

    A couple thoughts here... 1. Carey had a terrible combine - some of the worst RB measureables there. Are they looking at him as a faller who might be there at the 3 comp they have to believe is...

    Clowney weighed in at 6'5" 266lbs. at the combine... prototypical size for an OLB in our system. Assuming he runs as well as we think he does, he's the best talent available.

    Casey Hampton started day 1. Kimo von Oelhoffen moved to DE as soon as Casey got here and stayed for 6 years. The more thinking you have to do at your position, the longer it takes to get on the...

    Guess what position just skyrocketed up the draft board? The PS will likely have 8 picks. Now guessing a 2nd and a 3rd day pick are spent at the position.
