    That would be a 4-3 defense that can pressure the QB and generate takeaways. That's not ours
    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!

    We used to be able to pressure with no problem in the 3-4.

    Bunch of mid and late round picks playing hard, smart, fast, and aggressive. Its a team personality they have that the players seem to feed on. Something I haven't seen from the Steelers since Peezy was here.

    they don't draft shrimp DBs. 70% of their DBs are 6' and over 200 lbs....

    meanwhile, the Steelers draft shrimps, 6 of 10 DBs are listed under 6' < 200 lbs.

    Someone on sports radio said Seattle drafts angry. I see it in Heyward and Troy but thats it.

    Dan Quinn has been in the NFL coaching ranks since 2001. First with Niners, then SEA. He brought the SEC back with him after two years under Saban in 2011 and 2012 at Florida. It all started with drafting Earl Thomas in 2010. Steelers pick for DB that year?.... Crezdon Butler.
