    LOL...Perhaps we are an injury away from playing more 4 - 3 as our base defense...you never know...

    But I do agree that the DL played well and we appear to have quite a bit of young talent on the DL.

    Not sure I agree with your last statement..I think the Steelers have been very successful at this...Maybe not always via the draft but finding and keeping OLB talent has been a strength...

    Given the propensity for teams to line up in passing formations nearly every down, I think the Steelers will be playing a lot with nickel and big nickel defenses, which would include a 4 man line...

    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    would a 4-3 front look something like:

    Woodley - Hood - McClendon - Heyward/Keisel?

    It may not have the traditional 2 fast DE's but Carter or Worilds could sub in for some passing downs with Heyward/Keisel if needed.

    I'm not at all opposed to seeing this happen given that the most impressive defense I've seen over the past 5 years has been the Giants when they are firing on all cylinders.

    Would you people give up the 4-3 vs. 3-4 debate??? Does it really matter with teams having multiple formations and personel now???
    The Steelers are drafting still for 3-4 Fronts.
    Tomlin has been here 5 yrs. now and we are still a 3-4. Get over it...if & when it happens, it happens.

    This guy seems to be the talk of training camp, like Baron Batch was last year and Redman a few years ago. Wasn't there a poll or something on here asking who people that it would be this year. Just wondered if any picked this guy. I only got to see the second half of the Eagles game but I was wondering who the guy was getting in the backfield all the time until I was finally able to read the jersey.
