    Clark was very significant in today's game. Good to have him back. The aggressive play turned the game, and our D dictated its will upon the Jests.

    Well I thought the same when we were getting torched with our DBs 10 yards off the ball.
    Lebeau made adjustments and changed my thoughts quickly.
    Glad Tomlins making the decisions and not me and you yahooos....LOL

    LeBeau's critics will be silent this week but ready to jump all over him after the next loss. It's as predictable as death and taxes.

    It would be kind of hard for them to say too much this week. The D only had 10 points scored on them, 90 yards rushing against them and the opposing QB had a sub 70 rating. Some will argue that the O keeping the ball for the amount of time they did helped. I won't argue against that, but there were no 4th quarter meltdowns today.

    Instead of the read-and-react and soft cushion zones used when then gave up points, the adjustments that the Steelers D came with in the 2nd half were exceptional ... press coverage and blitzes coming from everywhere. Cudos to Lebeau and the players. Having Clark present was big - he was highly effective. The Steeler D exerted its will upon the Jets, Sanchize was rattled into a 66.6 QB rating, and the game became an easy victory.

    If there is any coordinator in the league that can adjust a game plan it is LeBeau. Usually it doesn't happen until half time, but today's game he didn't even wait that long.

    Funny there are some on this board that argue Saint LeBeau doesnt know how to adjust ... and if he just played the defense the way they think he should, we would be so much better than #1 year after year.

    what happened, I thought the other team always scores on LeBeau's defense right after our offense scores?

    Thats because he didn't coach "scared" this week. After the initial drive he got aggressive and we saw more blitzes than we have in a long time. Timmons was sent at least half a dozen times. Thats always been the issue. Good QB like Manning play scared, average QB like Sanchez play aggressive. We have to be aggressive all the time to do our best. Let's hope that we see the attacking style we saw on Sunday the rest of the season.

    Never an issue of "doesn't know" but too many time "it is an issue of "won't." yesterday he did and look how great the result was. Sending more on blitzes especially Timmons on the inside. That is how we have to play to be great.
