    We are getting in favorable down and distance, guys can pin their ears back and rush.

    Shut down the run, make them one dimensional, then wreak havoc. Always been a LeBeau staple and it can still work, whether or not ungrateful Steeler fans think he some senile old coot.


    If Roquan Smith falls to late teens, trade 1.28 & 2.60 to SEA for 1.18 & 4.120:

    1.18 LB Roquan Smith
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    4.120 RB Royce Freeman
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling
    7.246 OT Brett Toth

    If not:

    1.28 LB Leighton Vander Esch
    2.60 C/G Billy Price
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 RB Ito Smith
    7.246 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    That's exactly right.

    And it's the difference between this game & the last 2. This D can work if they can get the 3rd & 8 or so. And they are showing today they can achieve that.

    We are playing up on the line scrimmage with our corners not allowing newton to throw quick, its a nice adjustment by lebeau, of course their receivers aren't much of a threat to run by us.

    Heyward is a beast! I can't believe they had him sitting behind Ziggy Hood.

    Credit where it's due- McLendon was much better tonight than I've seen.

    And the result of good play from the NT- good play from the defense.

    Since the LBs aren't getting pressure it's now up to the DL to step it up. They did last night.

    McClendon was really good last night. We've seen good games from him like this before. I'm hoping to see him build off this performance moving forward.
