    I mean in the national media, he is often under-appreciated. There are definitely some who understand his impact, but because he is not a sack machine, his name is barely recognizable to much of the NFL
    But you also said this:

    Of course, Troy also helps in the run D and Aaron with the pass D, but I just think Aaron Smith is grossly under-appreciated, even among the Steeler faithful.
    And I'm telling you I don't think that's true. I think vast majority of us have come to appreciate how much he means to the defense by now.
    Got it.

    Thanks for setting me straight.

    Except for the other 31 offensive coordinators.

    I have always loved and spoken up about A. Smith. He could be the best 3-4 DE of all time but........there is no way that he gets any real HOF consideration. The only HOF consideration he gets is what was said in Coach Lebeau's speech.

    Amongst Steeler faithful I think that the true unsung hero is Keisel. We often mention how underappreciated AS is, but in the following sentence will talk about how easily replaceable Keisel is.

    And 62 other RG's and RT's.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    When these Cleveland Clowns fans around here say to me, "the Steeler D really missed Troy last year." I alway reply," having Aaron Smith and Troy back has really made a difference." I guess unless you're a Steeler fan, Aaron Smith doesn't get the credit he deserves.
