    How "real" is the Steelers defense?

    Now keep in mind that McNabb was not 100% courtesy of Foote and Timmons during this game along with Smith and a few others.

    Westbrook was knocked out with that freak ankle injury.

    Deshaun Jackson was in and out of the lineup.

    Shawn Andrews was out.

    Having said that, is this defense for real?

    McFadden and Polamalu are, they were all over the field and each made big plays so it's hard to fault them.

    Timmons is really coming into his own, he was making some big hits today and really getting after McNabb.

    I was happy about the way they played. We had offensive oppurtunities so many times because of our defense, but our offense sucked.

    Our D was pretty good minus 2 plays, they gave up 2 3rd and long plays. Outside of that, they played a heck of a game. And like said, they were on the field way too long.

    Those 2 3rd and long plays the eagles converted were disgusting..how in God's name do you give THAT much cushion on a play like that beyond the 1st down marker.

    Now keep in mind that McNabb was not 100% courtesy of Foote and Timmons during this game along with Smith and a few others. Health aside,McNabb alwasy runs hot and cold,today he was hot

    Westbrook was knocked out with that freak ankle injury. He has never had a good game against the Steelers

    Deshaun Jackson was in and out of the lineup. He's still an unknown

    Shawn Andrews was out. I doubt that made a difference

    Having said that, is this defense for real? Yes it is

    McFadden and Polamalu are, they were all over the field and each made big plays so it's hard to fault them.

    Timmons is really coming into his own, he was making some big hits today and really getting after McNabb. I thought he should have played a lot more than he did.

    OUR Offense was our biggest defensive problem today. All we needed all day was one good drive, we got ZERO good drives. Our defense was on the field all day. These guys deserve more props. Imagine if our offense could have got moving, maybe ran some time off the clock, gave our defense a rest. Maybe once take advantage of our field position! Troy had an interception neat the 50, they next drive the punted to the 50, and we got ZERO points. Our offesne was our worst enemy today.
