    How embarrassed is...

    D!ck LeBeau and the Steelers Defense???

    Opening Day vs the Chargers, the Raiders scored 14 pts at home.

    Week #2, the Fins put up 35 points, thrashing the happless Raiders by 22.

    Yesterday the Broncos crushed the Raiders by 31.

    Yet, inexplicably, the Steelers had all kinds of problems stopping a team that couldn't
    manage 34 points in the other 3 games they played.

    Is this a sign that the Steelers Defense is truly OLD, SLOW, and Completely DONE, or
    was it just a bad day??

    I truly believe that if Troy and James had been playing, it would have been different.

    However, that defensive preformance was the WORST that I have EVER seen!!!

    The Steelers Defense $h!t the bed for 5 straight possessions, allowing the Raiders
    to erase 7 and 10 pt leads, throughout the game.

    I'm worried...if the Steelers couldn't stop the Raiders from scoring 34, 34 are you
    kidding me, 34, than who are they going to stop???

    Absolutley pathetic!!

    I would really like to think we just had a couple "bad days" but I think the roots of the problem are deeper than that.

    Personally, I really don't think LeBeau is embarassed at all because he doesn't think anything is really wrong that a few adjustments won't fix. He'll never believe that his "baby is ugly" but the past is the past.

    As far as Troy and Harrison playing, I really don't think we see Harrison again this season if at all. Troy may be back but do we really think he won't be injured again? If the defense won't work without those two we do have a problem because they won't be around much longer and LeBeau appears to have no "Plan B" when they can't play.

    Yes, the defense is that bad.

    Even when we played the Jets, I wasn't particularly impressed. When Sanchez wasn't sucking, he was torching us with Holmes... in the 1st quarter.

    The Jets scored a whopping ZERO points against the 49ers.

    Every team goes through problems. This team WILL fix it, like they always do.

    Unlike the 49ers, we spent alot of money on offense. We try to have a balanced team with good players on O and D.
    The 49ers have opted for D and a good running game.
    ....49ers still have little hope of a Super Bowl.

    How you beat the Jets is irrelevant as long as you do. But can you also beat the other teams you need to get to glory? The Steelers showed they can periodically, while other teams haven't.


    Also, today is not tomorrow in the NFL. You think the Cardinals are really going towards some playoff run because they are 4-0. How often does a team start 6-0 or even 8-0 and totally flame out. Good programs rectify problems as they go.

    "We spent a lot of money of Offense?????" What team are you looking at. All the recent big contracts have gone to defensive players.

    Are you kidding me? 49ers didn't do anything to address their O? They might have done more than ANYONE at addressing their lack of play makers in the passing game. They sign Randy Moss and Manningham as free agents, just to start. Then they drafted A.J Jenkins, WR, in the 1st round and LaMichael James, RB, in the 2nd - both of whom should give the offense a burst, eventually. So, to say that SF hasn't put any $ into the O is erroneous.

    Absolutely right... Although injured, they also signed Brandon Jacobs. And don't forget Crabtree and Vernon Davis. Crabtee was a 10th overall pick and Davis was 6th overall.

    They are loaded on both sides of the ball.

    That can happen when you are a poor-to-mediocre franchise for a decade or so...

    I dunno...the only pairs that I would put ahead of Wallace-Brown right now would be Roddy-Julio, Nicks-Cruz (when Nicks is healthy) and maybe Jennings-Nelson (when Jennings is healthy). I like Wallace Brown better than Austin-Bryant and Jackson-Maclin. Megatron and Fitz would obvious enter the discussion if either got a legit WR opposite them.
