....makes me really realize how the Steelers' D is just not in the class of the top Ds out there.
We really do look slow by comparison.
Those Ds contest virtually everything. Almost every pass, they have defenders all around the receiver, making simple completions very arduous. All of those Ds are wicked. We just aren't in their class anymore. Not even close. The speed and hitting is far beyond what they Steelers were this year.
The solution? I say new blood, including putting our 75-year-old DC to pasture. Nothing lasts forever. And men in their mid 70's should not be filling such a big time role. He should be growing a garden, smelling the roses and chilling out. We need new blood both in players and coaches. We need some youth added to the secondary, LBs (please tell me Foote won't be back) and DL. They better draft the crap out of this draft.
