Does not the fact that the Steelers played one of the worst opponent win-loss percentages in the league not have something to do with that? If all we do is look at statistics we can be deceived by the actual facts.

    Was it number 1 ranked versus the lowly Raiders, Titans, Browns, Chargers, and Cowboys? All sub-par to below average teams.

    It is deceiving. No way is this D truly the best in the NFL. I think points against is a much more meaningful stat to judge a D by, and basing rankings on that, SF, Chic., Seat., Denver and Hous. (by 1 point) are all higher ranking Ds and I would say that pretty much is a dead on ranking for what Ds I believe are better than Pgh. It doesn't matter if you give up some yards if the opponent isn't scoring. There is no way on Earth I'd put Pgh's D in the category of SF and Seat. They hit harder, get to the QB and have DBs who fly all over the place.
