    Is LeBeau this senile?

    Matt freaking Cassel, No pressure packages, 10 yard cushions. Haley need to get it during the bye and LeBeau need to get it after the season.

    Maybe they should have moved on from LeBeau after the Wild Card loss in Denver. He's one of the greatest defensive minds in NFL history, but the game may have finally passed him by.

    Not senile but stubborn and unwilling to change. But why should he when the defense can slip year after year and it's always someone else's fault
    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!

    Ever think that the lack of talent might have something to do with our crap defense?

    You're not wrong. But name me ONE profession where a 70-year old can successfully hang with the best of the best. Just one.

    You can't, because there isn't one. There aren't many great 70-year old doctors, lawyers, engineers, schoolteachers, etc. Especially a hyper-competitive, fast-paced environment like professional football.

    There's a lot of CEOs, Investors, and Gov't Officials over 70. Age doesn't mean a whole lot, it comes down to the individual and their passion and capability. Warren Buffett, Carl Ichan, Rupert Murdoch, and on and on. Granted most people's health declines at some point. But some 70 year olds are still relatively young. And if you are coaching young men, that should also help keep you young. Lebeau seems like a younger man to me.

    The best trial lawyer I've seen has been practicing for about 45 years. He still handles high profile cases and does an excellent job with them.

    Theres high picks all over the front 7.

    Solid corner in Ike and a HOFer at safety?

    Does he need a #1 draft pick at every position to get one turnover??

    The high picks are not playing like high picks right now...at least, not enough of them are...

    The rule changes hurt the Steelers style on defense. When you no longer can intimidate with bone jarring hits,you must be technically sound,and the Steelers are not.
