    Vontaze Burfict 2nd season
    Kiko Alonso Rookie
    Justin Houston 3rd season

    Know what these players all have in common?









    They are all players that would have no shot if they played in a complicated D.Lebeau defense.
    They're also leading the league in
    Tackles
    Interceptions
    Sacks

    We waste young talent, others use it to their advantage.
    This is why some are tired of this tired defensive scheme.

    Too simplistic. We did draft Sean Spence last year, a guy of the same status as the guys you mention. And if he didn't have his unfortunate injury, he would be primed to step in for Foote this season.

    What young talent? Who has sat on the Steelers and gone on to excel elsewhere?

    Jones is playing - starting - as a rookie. Shmarko has seen significant time. And Vince Williams is starting over the more senior Kion Wilson and instead of the Steelers bringing back a guy like Sylvester.

    You seem to be trying to turn the conversation back to the offense all the time. Yes, the offense certainly shares a lot of the blame. No one would argue that. But that should not excuse the defense's poor play. They can't pressure the QB and they can't force turnovers. The 10-yard cushions allow the Steeler defense to be dinked-and-dunked to death. LeBeau's schemes are too soft and look like he's coaching scared.

    And the miss tackles were epic or we are talking a different tune...

    The thing about missed tackles is that, in order to miss them, the player had to be in position to make them...it wasn't the scheme this game...it was the execution...

    This is why I always rail on about not giving up big plays and not turning the ball over...big plays are what kills the defense...two big plays generated 14 points for the opposing team...two turnovers led to another 7 for the Vikes and the missed opportunity to tie the game at the end...

    That sounds like an excuse to me...

    are you seriously trying to give these guys credit for being on the field and in a position to make the tackle?

    Geez.. I've heard it all now.

    No, I give LeBeau credit for putting players in the correct position to make a tackle...that is what he is supposed to do: put players in the correct position...

    The players didn't get it done...LeBeau can't tackle for them...

    Interesting to see whether they rush Spence back as one of the "changes"

    Reality is that there is little a NFL team can really do personnel wise. Especially given the cap mess we have.
    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!
