    Is there any reason to believe that even if LeBeau leaves that his disciple will change the scheme?
    Butler will keep the same scheme. He doesn't have the political capital to lead a major change to another defense unless Tomlin dictates it.
    1.25 DT Vernon Butler, La Tech, 6’4” 323
    2.58 CB Artie Burns, Miami, 5’11” 189
    3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 6’6” 240-Jarvis Jones’ replacement
    4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 6’4 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
    6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 6’7” 322-raw talent with ton of upside
    7.229 CB Brian Poole, Florida, 5’10” 210
    7.246 WR/KR Ed Eagan, Northwestern State, 5’ 10” 185-need WR depth and returner

    I would not be surprised to hear that LeBeau decides to retire after he gets elected to the Hall of Fame next month. That may have been what Butler was told and why he stayed. They let him in on the plan and swore him to secrecy.

    Holding out hope for the 4-3 is like hoping for BA to leave...

    Total waste of energy and major self induced blood pressure...
    No need to change anything. Troy and Aaron will be back and everything will be good.

    I agree with your sarcasm as fact. The Steelers will have one of the top defenses in the league in 2010.
