Normally, Coach Lebeau doesn't address his status for the coming season until after he's had some time to reflect and think. This year though in the exit interviews with Coach Tomlin he said he wanted to come back, and that was that. He's back.
Now, for the defense, what types of things do you think they need to do differently to improve in 2012? I know they finished overall #1 in the league and #1 in points and passing but as we saw there were issues with this group that need to be addressed. Certainly personnel is one, who stays and who goes, but also did they blitz enough in 2011? Do they need to back off more in 2012? The run defense was definitely not up to snuff when compared to just last year and in years past.
