    The sack total just isn't there yet for the Steelers

    I would say yes it's a concern but not of epic proportions just yet. You always want to get the QB on the ground as much as possible. It's an emotion boost for the entire unit and especially when you're at home it really gets the crowd going. However I will say that sacks aren't everything, the defense is collapsing the pocket pretty well the last 2 weeks and even if they don't get there they are making the QB hurry his passes, and throwing off the timing of the offense, and if they can just get there a half step quicker the sacks will come.

    Defensive rankings so far:
    #2 - Total Defense
    #1 - Pass Defense
    #9 - Rush Defense
    #24 - 11 Sacks

    As the two get healthy the sacks will come.

    I'm real concerned with Nicks. Big WR's give us problems.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    It won't be, wow so we just beat the Redskins, not like our defense was back or anything.

    I've learnt to cope with fans overreacting over a win like this.

    Even though our defense is ranked #2 they are a big reason why we were in a hole (and still are were #7 in playoffs)

    Didn't you say RGIII would put up big numbers against us? Maybe that was someone else.

    It was something similar to that...Oh wait, I think if memory serves me correctly it was and I quote, "I can't wait until he comes in and dicks all over Lebeau's defense to prove you wrong."

    I'm not sold on the defense whatsoever. I saw how that "# 1" pass defense got abused by a QB coming back after being out an entire year. They made him look like he hardly missed any time. That was embarrassing. Then to watch the Falcons defense make Manning look like an old QB right after really pissed me off.

    Dick Lebeau still needs to retire. I have little to no faith in him. His schemes and ideas are stall and he refuses to bring any freshness to the defense.

    Regardless if he took a year off or not, Manning is still one of the best QB's in the NFL and has showed it, he has had only one bad HALF all season.

    I agree our pass defense isn't that good, especially as good as the numbers say, but you made it seem like the D got lit up by some scrub.

    ^ does anyone want to accept the fact that the players on D are just not that good??? old and done or young and inexperienced or bad.

    I`m not so sure that we have anyone injured that can come back and help this defense get a pass rush going. I wouldn`t mind if the sacks were down but we were still applying pressure, but every opposing QB seems to have plenty of time the majority of the game. Even Troy coming back won`t help
