    This Is LeBeau's Defense When The Playmakers Aren't Healthy...

    Did they get a ton of sacks? No...

    Did they cause a bunch of turnovers? No...

    But...did they give up big plays? A big fat no...

    If the Steelers can play sound defense like they did for most of this game (Green-Ellis had some big runs, but still finished with an average less than 4 per carry) and maintian their gaps, they will be able to survive until Harrison is playing better and Polamalu is healthy...

    They took away AJ Green and it crippled Cincy.

    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    In the past a guy like Gresham would gash us. Timmons played well against him.

    Timmons played well again, finishing with 11 tackles.

    This is true. Wasn't he the AFC leader in receiving yards?

    1. @ BAL 5-70-0
    2. v. CLE 7-58-1
    3. @ WAS 9-183-1
    4. @ JAX 6-117-1
    5. v. MIA 9-65-1
    6. @ CLE 7-135-2
    7. v. PIT 1-8-1

    One of these things is not like the other...

    After the disaster that was last week, you've got to give Ike props for last night. A.J. Green is 10 times the player that Kenny Britt is, but Ike bounced back from a historically bad performance against Britt to helping to eliminate Cincy's top weapon in a huge division game.


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    How much better did Ike play, vs. how much was simply the difference in him having safety help over the top? I'd say the safety help was MOST of the difference, and how we should play the top WR each week.
