    Can the Steelers continue to win if...

    They do not start creating more turnovers on defense?? It's absolutely astonishing to me that the Steelers defense through 6 games so far this season only has 2 count them TWO Turnovers so far and their record is 4-2. That is the worst in the league by a pretty good margin. I personally do not believe that they can win consistently against the better teams in the league mainly New England and Baltimore coming up here if they dont start creating more turnovers and creating turnovers that are game changers. You just have to ask yourself how long can this Steelers defense continue to hold up with this upcoming schedule without creating turnovers and having some of your best players out like Harrison and so forth...

    You're both correct. You can beat an average team sometimes and the poor teams without TO's. But you'll seldom beat a good team if you don't win the TO battle.

    They'll come, you gotta get consistant pressure on the QB and get him to want to throw the ball sooner than he'd like. IMO that hasn't happened yet...

    Listen, the turnovers will come soon enough. We just have to be patient. We are too talented not to get them. Troy has been so close this year on many plays

    I agree with everyone. You can't beat teams like the Patriots and Ravens without forcing some turnovers. But, I do think they're getting better on defense with each game. The turnovers will hopefully come soon.

    As long as the Steelers are not giving it away, I don't worry about the take-aways.

    The only thing that concerns me is giving an offense a free 1st down (special teams roughing penalty, or Defensive penalty) when the defense does it's job on 3rd down.

    Hopefully the Steelers are saving those turnovers for the games against the Patriots and Ravens because they definitely are going to need them in both of those games for certain...I also agree with you Harrison about the Steelers needing to stop being so careless at times and committing those costly 15 yard penalties that end up ruining good drives or costing them better scoring opportunities.
