I was very impressed with our second string defensive players. They really showed that we do indeed have depth at many defensive positions. The first string made me sick to my stomach! Steelers linemen and linebackers are NOT supposed to miss all those tackles. Hopefully James Harrison and Casey Hampton will open their mouths even more and be openly vocal with their opinions toward other first stringers about this kind of defensive play not continuing.
There is absolutely no way at all we will make it to the Super Bowl, let alone win it with the kind of defensive play I witnessed on Thursday. I know we'll pick it up to another level. I just haven't seen such sore open field tackling by a Steelers team since the '80's. We need to get a grip.
