    Chew on this

    The Steelers are the 6th ranked defense in the NFL.
    The Steelers have 4 sacks through 4 games.
    The Steelers have 0 takeaways through 4 games...
    Do we still think yards allowed per game is a stat indicative of a top defense?

    Unfortunately, there are yinzers who will continue to think that.

    How could we forget? However, there are more than a few threads devoted to bashing the offense.

    Now... this D and the rankings so many love to use... can we talk about it?

    Does it? Bell in the line up certainly helped bring things to life. Our offense most definitely doesn't suck, our tackles do or at the very least Adams who I was defending a couple days ago. Improved tackle play makes this offense pretty damn good.

    yeah, nobody ever mentions the defense here.

    get over yourself.
