    How could the D rank #1 4 out of the past 6 year's or something like that if every one know's this Defence so well.


    Where did the offense rank in time of possession?

    Ok- consider Chadman to be dumb- but why will the 4-3 work better than the 3-4, exactly?

Not saying that DL would be instantly a top DL in the league, but it would be good enough to win. And I think getting fat boy at DE and Worilds to the starter at OLB with Harrison, and Timmons in the middle, would do fine. We could go from being thin to having depth.
    Worilds we be a DE in a 4-3 and Harrison (if he returns) is better suited in a 3-4. Timmons profiles best as a OLB in a 4-3, leaving the Steelers with holes at 2 linebacker spots. You need a lot more at DE than Worilds/Woodley, and I cannot fathom why you would be a defense that features Ziggy Hood, Cam Heyward, Al Woods, a guy on the practice squad and Steve McClendon.

    I am certain that switching to the 4-3 will fix the offense....

    We absolutely should make the switch.

    And when they rank 20th in starting field position, and near the bottom in turnovers forced? You aren't going to score 30 points a game.

    Simply takes too much time off the clock when you go 75-80 for the majority of the points you score.

    We had #1 D in yards and #5 in scoring D. Defense overall was not the problem. Offensive inconsistency is the problem.CHALLENGE - we had 8 losses this season Can we think of no more than 8 plays/incidents that could have turned 4 of those losses into wins?

    A lot of the blame for field position rests with the special teams. The penalties from that unit often left the Steelers with bad field position.

    Yep. That too. And giving up a first down then getting a punt, followed by the penalty.

    Fantasy football has killed football logic.

    And the Patriots were less then 2 min's in top behind Steelers but scored over 30 points a game
