    The whole developing DB thing is a load of garbage, has anyone watched the NFL lately it's not like there is a lot of shutdown corners out there. The teams that do have very good corners didn't develop them, they drafted them and hit or they picked one up through trade or free agency.

    That's what the NFL Network was saying after last year.... The Killer B's (AB, Ben and Bell) should go down in the record books for what they haven't accomplished (winning a SB).

    That the triple B's and the rest of the offense has had as much talent as anyone else since the "greatest show on turf" Rams.
    Tomlin: Let's unleash hell and "mop the floor" with the competition.

    You're ignoring one half the roster. That half is hardly SB quality. They made Blake Bortles look like the reincarnation of Ken Stabler.

    But was it only due to lack of defensive talent? Or ar scheme, play-calling, and preparation on the part of the coaches to blame as well?

    I believe with the right people running this defense, while it wouldn't be elite, they could manage to stop NO on a 3rd and 20 late in the game, and they could have done enough to get a win over the Jags last year.

    Is very hard to win games against good teams when you lose the turnover battle.

    The problem is the talent (or lack of) impacts the playcalling. How many times did we hear they were simplifying things to help the defense? Plus, you are not likely to fool a QB like Brees. Whatever defense was called he would likely check to something else. Did you watch what Roethlisberger did to the Saints defense on the last drive? ... picked up a 4th and 15. How did they let that happen?

    Uh , I know some of you may not remember but the Rams were #4 in defense that year. As usual, the offense got all the publicity but the defense and kickoff/ punt return team was awesome.
