    How do you like "the old man" now?

    We all ready have a thread sucking the *** of Batch we don't need another one like it, give it a rest and try being a little more original!

Steelers have had plenty of INT chances, but it seems like the defenders are a second late looking for the ball - especially on fade routes.
    100% agree.

    There's either going to be a thread "sucking ***," or there's going to be a thread "whining and hating." That's 90% of what exists on a sports forum. For someone who's been here for 8 years, you would think you would know and accept that by now.

    I agree that LeBeau has been awesome, never said he wasn't. It was just dumb of you to say that Carnell Lake deserves as much credit as a water boy, that's all.
    I'm not going to praise Lake for not having to coach Taylor and Gay. That's dumb. The DB personnel simply improved. Why would I give credit to the DB coach? It's not like he took players that used to suck and made them good.

    Well, the secondary, which previously made many of us pull our hair out, is now a serious strength on the defense. So yeah, agree to disagree. I've been to Latrobe the last two years, and I like what I see from Lake. Everything from work ethic, to his interactions with the players, is great.

    The lack of takeaways or "splash plays" concerns me.

    We were spoiled with Harrison and Troy in their prime.

    Sometimes the only way you can stop a team's passing game is by intercepting the few mistakes the QB makes. There are certain passing offenses that can't be stopped otherwise the majority of the time. Throw in the fact that the refs call pass-happy games during the post-season and basically you need to take the ball away because playing "good" defense in the secondary will only result in BS yellow flags.

    I think they are playing significantly more M2M and Press since Tennessee... and I'm inclined to believe it's at Tomlin's insistence.

    Do you guys think the M2M could be a Tomlin touch??
