    LeBeau isn't going anywhere. It's like Shawshank Redemption. He's been "Institutionalized" ...... as soon as he's freed from the NFL he'll die.

    You may be correct. Like Joe Pa. The game is what keeps them going.
    I'd probably be bored to death without my job too.

    ...and as a life long Penn State fan I also recognize that keeping Joe Pa resulted in mediocrity as other Big 10 programs like Ohio State and Michigan State were moving forward.

    I don't want that for our Steelers defense juts because it is a "respect" thing
    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!

    2014 Draft

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S
    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT
    5a. Brandon Coleman, WR
    5b. Brent Urban, DE
    6. Prince Shembo, OLB
    7a. Aaron Colvin, CB
    7b. Storm Johnson, RB

    I've been on both sides of the "scheme vs. players" debate. I've seen enough missed tackles to know that the players must shoulder some of the blame because they were put in position to make plays, but the lack of pressure and 10 yard cushion bother me as well. The question is, can the scheme work again without so many holes? i.e. NT, FS

    You adjust your scheme to maximize the abilities of the players you actually have and don't hope the players can do what you want because you love your system and don't want to change. That is called good coaching.

    While they have similarities I really don't think the game has passed LeBeau. the game passed JoePa a long time ago. Do you really think LeBeau would fail if he still had HARRISON, FARRIOR, POLAMALU & IKE in their prime. this is a talent issue, not a scheme issue.

    Lebeau adjusted his scheme quite a bit. For example, Troy played ILB to cover the talent deficiencies with that unit. I'm not sure how this team's talent translates any better into a 4-3. For Lebeau to have this defense in the middle of the pack, despite serious talent issues, is quite an accomplishment.
