Call it what you want: a tempo-setter, a guy who operates on a different wavelength than everyone else. It especially came to mind, watching Sherman rip Crabtree the last couple days.

    Every great defense has one... at least one guy who plays on an emotional edge. He doesn't have to be the defense's best player, but he sets the tempo, the attitude of the defense. Currently, we glaringly lack that player. (Polamalu is/was that type of player, but his time has passed.) It is something that we should keep in mind, as we debate about guys like Nix, Dennard, Mack, Justin Gilbert, etc. We need a guy who has a permanent 2x4 (not a chip) on his shoulder, an oft-times irrational nut, who drives the defense.
    Heyward will definitely be that guy, I have zero doubt in my mind

Personally, I think that part of what separates GREAT teams from good or bad teams is the feeling of accountability among teammates. We had that with Lloyd, Porter, Harrison, Smith etc. and need to find guys who are going to not only hold their teammates accountable, but show them the way.
    Can't agree more ++++111111. Tomlin treats the players like men therefore he needs internal leadership to police and drive the team on the field.

    I like Skov too. He seems a little nuts, even beyond he mohawk and face paint. I little whacko would be welcome on this team. As for Sherman's tactics, I dont care for his mouth or his tv "personality", but you cant argue with his play on the field. He's one of those guys that you love if he is on your team and hate if he isn't. The Steelers have had their fair share of those types!
