    They are being conservative on D, 10 yard cushion's. They need to get up and press. They might get burned for a long touchdown or give up a first down but it happens. Keeping everything in front for 3 downs isn't going to cut it as we saw in the Ravens game and especially when the offense isn't clicking.

    Maybe I'm being optimistic but I think come playoff time they will turn it up.

    Lebeau needs to start pressing these receivers more often

    Kind of late to be worried about what to do about turnovers now. They talked about this 8-10 weeks ago, saying turnovers would come and fix itself. If the defense starts focusing to much and pressing to cause turnovers, the players will start missing their assignments, making mistakes and giving up big plays.

    It's a pretty safe assumption that the Steelers are not going to come out on the plus side of the takeaway/giveaway margin this year. That 7 turnover performance in week 1 put them behind the 8 ball from the start and they just couldn't recover.

    You'd like to think the defense can pull out some INT's and fumble recovery's coming up but if they can't they'll have to win the old fashioned way.

    i agree with this. force the QB's to throw into a smaller window. i think it would lead to more tip balls, or the QB holding on to it a littler longer which would allow the pressure to get to him for sacks and possibly fumbles.

    IMO turnovers come because of pressure. Get pressure on the qb and the turnovers will come.

    Play it like the Pats game, and we will get the turn overs and win every game.

    Then, we just need BA to man up and buy Madden 2011 and upgrade some of his plays...

    Steelers are playing conservative coverage and the lack of pressure doesn't force the QB into getting rid of the ball early. Defense will either have to start playing tighter coverage, getting better push up the middle from the interior DL, or when they tackle, 1st defender stands up the runner, everyone else goes for the strip.
