They are just physically gifted, but not always smart. Just because TP asserts this doesn't mean it's 100% infallible. By the way, I don't think TP is stupid, but I also don't think he is all-knowing.

    Look up for the answer

    I have never seen anyone have such a fascination with the word "assertion".

    Is the fascination with "assertion" or "insertion"?

    Don't worry Eddie: You can still look up words in something called a "dictionary." What was long and hard on Eddie? 3rd grade.

    My "word?" I didn't know anyone even had the capability of giving their "word" on an Internet message board. Are you on any kind of medication? Giving one's opinion on a message board is hardly any sort of promise, whatsoever. I am confused by your mode of thought.

    I wish our defense was as agressive attacking our opponents as some some posters are with each other. We'd be undefeated right now.

    Nothing here is important enough to attack another poster over or make it personal...really!!!!
    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!

    So, apparently, the Steeler are aware of how to burn such soft coverage. So why is it, that when on D, Pgh also plays way off WRs too many times, in my opinion. I never understood why DL has CB coverage play so far off the wide outs. Is he really that paranoid of getting toasted? If our CBs are that terrible, then f----g find new ones? You mean after 12 years, they have still FAILED to find a single decent CB who can play tight coverage? Something is FAIL here. Either they are completely incompetent at finding CB talent, or the system is gamed to be so damned scared to be beat deep that they never can play tight. I don't get it. And, no I don't buy that DL's systems is so complex that the regular guy can't grasp it. This is football, not NASA. F that excuse.
    We have played a lot more bump and run since the 2010 playoff run. Probably more than we played than any time in the last 10 seasons. It was bump and run for many of the big plays in the playoff game in Denver last season. There was quite a bit of bump and run late in the game against Oakland two weeks ago. In the last two years, Troy has been playing a lot more cover 2 style safety. Before that he was in the box more, so we had to play more cover 3 which dictates that the CBs must play off so nothing gets behind them.
