Over the years, we've seen this team transition quite a bit. Under Tomlin, the offense is much more explosive but what about defense?
It seems like Tomlin held onto most of the defensiveguys from the Cowher era and why wouldn'e he? Cowher drafted and developed great talent on defensive side of the ball.
Most of those guys from the Cowher era are either past their prime or released. My question is, where is the "new" talent? I think this D' is about average right now. The Steelers have ALWAYS been known to have a next wave of talent especially in regards to defense. Where are they? I thought CB might be the next wave but I'm not quite sure.
It's not like haven't drafted defensive players in the early rounds.
I have to point to Tomlin in this regard. Where is the development? Why isn't our defensive personnel progressing like our offensive players.
