    Finally changing course on NT

    https://steelerswire.usatoday.com/20...ost_position=0

    It took long enough but it looks as though the Steelers are finally putting a priority on a beefy NT. Not only from Tomlin's visit with this fellow from UM, but also with time spent with this other space-eater, Clark from Coastal Carolina. Finally, it looks like they figured out they need beef on the DL.

    Better late than never. I read even Heyward was pushing for the move.

    Man I hope so. Especially with playing the Ravens and Browns twice a year

    They are clearly building this team to run the ball and stop the run, in a conference loaded with young, star QBs, including one who might be the GOAT.

    You might want to check out our total D with a serious NT in play, including passing D. Whoopsie! A bow, bow, bow.

    Trying to keep JB off the field seems like a good idea.

    Need to be able to score though.

    They're been an issue. But when we put KP in, seems like we were at least better at moving the ball. Need to be better on the red zone.

    You can't keep great QBs and offenses off the field all game, they eventually land a flurry of punches and you need to be able to answer.

    But having a legit NT is the 1st step in a 3-4 D to getting more stops. Don't know what took this team so long to get that. They've been in denial for a long time. Since Hampton, really. Cool Shades has been anti dominant NT.

    Might work early in the game, but then Allen, Burrow, Mahomes, Herbert, Lawrence, etc. go pass heavy and gas out the big man while our secondary gets torched.
