    Bob Smizik: Defense stinks out the joint!
    Wish he wouldn't use the word "joint" in connection with this team...

The Lbs that most of you criticize in Worilds seems like he's always making plays that count along with Timmons.
    Shaizer brought some serious pressure from the outside a few times. There was always a RB wide open though

    Some players you don't worry about like Shazier, because he's only going to get better. Coming off last week I guess we got caught up.

    Fwiw Cam Thomas was hands down the worst player on the field last night, who was playing on Jarvis' side of the ball. No matter who you are at OLB if your 330 pound DE is getting washed out of a play you are going to have a rough night.

    Worilds was the best LB last night....which was refreshing, I suppose. Maybe he did turn it on. He gets Mitchell Schwartz week one, theres no reason why he shouldnt be taking him to school

    Is that the same as accepting failure on #95?

    The problem is that the defense needs young guys to step up and play like they've been in the league for 4 or 5 years and they aren't. The defense will be inconsistent this year and probably next year as well when Troy and Ike retire. The Steelers need the offense to carry the day this year and in all likelihood next year. At that point this year's rookies and second year players will be (should be) making a difference and the team will become the 11-5 and 12-4 team that many seem to think might happen this year. I, personally, don't see it happening, because, while the offense will be good, I don't think they are capable of controlling a game and limiting the exposure of the defense.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    So it will be the fault of Haley and the offense because we know one person who is teflon!!!

    Like I have repeatedly said reference to your comment blow

    young guys to step up and play like they've been in the league for 4 or 5 years and they aren't
    You need to adjust to the talents of the people you actually have not the ones you wish you had. You have young guys so you don't rely on a system that requires 5-6 years of experience. That is doomed to fail.
