Absence of Harrison & Troy takes a huge bite out of Lebeau's schemes. Minus Harrison, teams can focus on blocking Woodley, thereby eliminating pressure. And without Troy, the defense loses the element of surprise which has been so key over the past several years. When these guys return, I expect they should elevate the play of the other 9 defenders, including #24.
Ike is the best corner on a team with a bunch of just below average cornerbacks. Taylor is overrated.
The Steeler way...is the only way.
BS hes always been 10 yds offHe's definitely lost a step which is why LeBeau had him 10 yards off the receivers constantly.
Wow! Ike is still a really good corner and Troy (when healthy of course) is still an asset to the defense. You really think they are the problem? Without Ike we would be screwed. And how can you say we are better without Troy? Did you not watch the Raiders game? Even a blind man can see the problem is the D line and linebackers not getting any pressure. That will make the best CB in history look like a scrub. The other problem is Coach Dad. His schemes don't work with the players he has to work with. Time for some new schemes and a new DC.
