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?
Schiavone's Race Career:
The O ranked #1 in Time of Possession
points per game 22
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.

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.

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.

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
