The most points we gave up in a game was 24 to Indy and 14 of those points, they started at our 30 due to mistakes (ints).
The Jets scored 34 on Tenn, The Pats scored 48 on Miami, Balt scored 36 on Philly. Can you see our D giving up that many points to these teams. Could it happen, I'll never say never to anything, but I'm 99.9 % sure it won't.
Our D is going to keep us in games. Our O has the talent to put up numbers on any given Sunday, but I think we just need them to give us 21 and if they can't do that just don't give the other team a short field.
The way our team is built in 2008, we will win a championship on a great D and with an efficient, mistake free offense.
Will it be pretty, probably not, but if you're standing there with the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the end of the night on February 1st in Tampa like this Steelers team still has a legit chance to do it will be the prettiest picture yet.
