    St LeBeau on Turnovers

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/steeler...8485--nfl.html Considering we don't have any yet through three games, we are guaranteed improvement in that department. Maybe this will be the week we 'break out' with a few...Ponder does have sore ribs.

    ''I always want more sacks, but I think we're getting good pressure on the quarterback,'' LeBeau said. ''And our third-down numbers are pretty good, and that usually means you're getting some pressure on the quarterback.''
    If tied for 15th in the league is pretty good, then carry on DL....

    When you don't play press, allowing WR to run their routes clean, and the opposing QB gets rid of the ball quick, you won't get picks or sacks.

    When you can never admit "your baby is ugly" then you will accept and rationalize any numbers as good.
    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!

    Can't get pressure, can't get turnovers, can't run the ball, can't protect the QB, can't score points, etc. Sounds to me like Tomlin, LeBeau, and Haley should all be fired.

    If this season goes how most of us think it is going to go, I'm all for a house cleaning of the coaching staff.

    I don't claim to know half as much as DL has forgot over the years even though i stayed at a Holiday Inn last night,
    BUT
    You can have the most exotic zone blitz schemes in place that may have worked 5+ years ago, but you need to be able to adapt to the changing NFL today.
    You play the Steelers now, you spread them out and take what they give you.
    Corners are playing 8 yards off the line, take the 5 yard pass.
    Blitz is coming, get rid of the ball quick.
    Dropping your OLB's into coverage, you know the ILB blitz is coming and hit the crosser.
    Allowing QB's early in the game to get into a passing rythym is the norm now.
    This waiting for the QB to make a mistake defense is a thing of the past.
    QB's are too smart now and seem to be willing to take what we give them.
    It's an all too familiar trend that has plagued us for the last few years.
    Proof is in the lack of takeaways.
    Proof is evident to anyone who watches every game.
    Surprise us DL and make some changes like you did vs. NE
    Stop being so stubborn and bring back the physicality we are lacking as a bend but don't break defense.
    My 2 cents

    So you are saying that every other team in the league plays 'press' as their primary coverage.
