    When you advocate moving to a 4-3, you discuss Woodley as a DE. On passing downs, you often see Woodley - Hood - Keisel - Harrison. Whether or not Woodley's hand is on the ground, Hood is playing a DT position and is charged with rushing the passer.

    Pretty simple for me FOUR Super Bowls as a 4-3 team and TWO Super Bowls as a 3-4 team. Since the 4-3 has the number four as the first number that is why we won four. If we stick with the 3-4 the max we can win is one more Super Bowl. However, since we broke the chain by going to the 3-4 if we go back to the 4-3 we reset the count and we can win four more. It all just aligns perfectly.

    I don't know why some of you can't figure these things out.
    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!

    I'm following your logic.

    we won 4 Super Bowls with the 4-3, so we're destined to win 3 more Super Bowls with the 3-4.

    since we've only won 2 Super Bowls with the 3-4 so far, let's wait for the inevitable one more Lombardi Trophy and then re-visit this discussion at that time.

    But you are missing the key dynamic. When were a "Steel Curtain" we had four men and that was truly a curtain. With three men you can't be a "Steel Curtain." All you can really be anything more than an aluminum mini-blind. Just doesn't work in the same traditional sense.

    Not overwhelming me with players any better than him. As a matter of fact, a lot of the dudes taken after are already out of football.

    Shady McCoy, Phil Loadholt, not much more than that. So, in hindsight, he wasn't such a bad pick considering who else was still available.
    Before we crucify the Iggy draft pick let's first crucify Iggy. Then we can move on to the draft pick.
