    What the heck happened to Lawrence Timmons?

    Foote is the best player on defense right now and that is sad!

    Old and slow. With no pass rush.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    The schemes on D are old, ineffective, and predictable. If DL can't adapt, then he shouldn't be in the league. I love the guy, but maybe his time is up.

    And I don't know what is up with Timmons, but we put a lot of money into the guy...

    base 4-3 that's why all the top defenses are 3-4

    I agree, and I never thought I would say that! His defense is never the right one.

    We need Foote out! He has had some descent plays but lacks speed and everyone is throwing crossing routes across the middle. if slyvester was ever healthy he would bring more speed.

    The way DLB schemes the 3-4 it is to stop the Run(we can't even do that now) the top defenses using the 3-4 play press coverage and rush4 or 5 guys.....Wow we have done that once or twice recently with great success.....then revert right back to the old 3-4 zone coverage thus teams adjust and pick us apart.....

    Woody is out in coverage more than he is up the fiels on a pass rush. No issues with him at all. Back to Timmons, he is taking poor angles and was outrun by Payton Manning. to me, he looks out of shape and slow.

    The blitzes, IMO, are telegraphed way too early. Zone blitz schemes are good, but if the linemen zone block, they'll just pick up wohever comes to them. They are taught not to chase guys around on a loop; They have to overload blitz at some point, for example sending 4 defenders at linemen plus a back.

    Again, trying not to over react, but what we've seen from the defense so far is not acceptable.
