    Not blowing 4th quarter leads on defense would be nice.

    Not getting shredded by jokes like Carson Palmer and Matt Hasselbeck comes to mind.

    Colt's O ranked 10 Steelers ranked 21

    To blame Dick LeBeau is foolish when it was clearly the o's fault.
    Which is why I'm sure you will fully support that we heavily invest in the offense in the upcoming draft. Typically those that blame the offense are the same ones who will say we need to draft Nose Tackles, Safeties and Inside Linebackers early in the draft.
    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!

    Yep, the scope is out on the Steelers, people looking for another way for them to be better.
    I have no issue with the 3-4, its been good for the Steelers for years and still is.

    1. Get Healthy *



    2. Good off season conditioning program



    3. Replace deadwood



    4. Let Omar do his miracle work in contracts *




    5. Add some young talent via the draft





    6. Convert Casey Hampton to FB.....jk


    A healthy and conditioned Lamar Woodley could help our front seven, if we keep JH, and combine that with a dominate NT, this defense will be even better.

    4-3 ? Na, Lets fix the inability of our offense to score *points or enough, then maybe we see some daylight.

    Not getting shredded by these types of QB's & playing 3-4 vs 4-3 have little to do with eachother, though, right?

    Who knows. I think the 4th quarter scheme stinks.

    So if they switch to a 4-3, maybe they have to switch schemes in the 4th as well.

    But I like the 3-4, when we use it, instead playing this passive crap we've been playing for two years.

    In the past few drafts, the Steelers premium picks (top 3 rounds) have skewed towards offense - 6 of 9 have been on offense.

    Regardless of the front you want, the Steelers need youth at LB and S. I wouldn't draft a NT in the first round. For starters, Hampton played fewer snaps than the third CB this year.

    On the offensive side, if Wallace leaves, the Steelers will need help at WR and they could use an addition to the backfield regardless of what happens with Mendenhall.

    Plenty of room to improve on both sides of the ball.

    Drafting and signing better CB's/DB's would be a novel approach.

    The remaining problem with our system is it takes forever to get defenders up to speed - pretty much every position takes 2 years before players seem to get it, or, at least, the coaches feel that way as young guys don't get to play for 2 years after they are drafted. That sucks. And look at players like Woodley - although once productive, his body breaks down now, every year, from having to try to cover people. It's a waste of time, just let him rush the Gad Damn QB.

    It doesn't seem to matter if we play passive or not; when we do send in blitzers they don't get any pressure any how, so what's the difference? Sending more people to rush that do not get any pressure is counter-productive. It just means less people to cover while still not getting any pressure. It's broken.
