    Yeah I'm going to agree time to retire ...

    and I can actually see them moving to a 4-3 defense... and if he hired Raheem Morris I would be all for it

    Worilds and Woodley used to be DEs in college ...

    Spence is more of a 4-3 OLB ...

    Hood is more of a 4-3 DT

    the drafting since Tomlin has been more of a 4-3 Drafting

    Yeesh.

    Harrison not himself for most of season because of injury.
    Troy not himself (or completely absent) until yesterday because of injury.
    Woodley out for hunk of season because of injury.

    (The above three being our biggest playmakers.)

    Ike misses last quarter of season due to injury.

    Although I agree that we were not the best "D" as such a ranking would suggest, they were solid (top 10) especially after the first 5 games or so. When you play close games all year because of a sh!tty offense, you have many more opportunities to give up the lead. If our offense played as "sh!tty" as our D did this season, we would be at least 12-4 and fighting for a first round bye.

    DL did everything he could with what he was given. I mean seriously? He should have used press coverage against the Cowboys with Josh Victorian and Robert Freakin' Golden? Romo would have put 60 up on us.

    No, it's time for change. Rex Ryan would be awesome!

    We need a new, young, stud Nose Tackle. That's a must for the coming season. Hampton is soooooooooo done.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I don't believe there's any deception in our #1 ranking. The games the D let us down you have to look at the injuries we had. The coaches may not be able to use injury as an excuse but the reality is the Steelers were decimated this year on both sides of the ball.

    To answer the question, yes I want DL to return.

    In my opinion I think the #1 overall ranking is very deceptive. The first half of the season the offense was top 1 or 2 in time of possession which kept the defense off the field and sprinkle in a couple of good games against bad teams the second half of the season may have inflated those numbers.

    Cortez Allen played lights out, Keenan Lewis looks good. I think we're set at corner! We need a pass rush and a safety or two..

    Funny how the injuries always count for the defense.

    But somehow every year the offense is a picture of health.

    Amazing.

    Two good corners is not enough these days against the Saints, Patriots, etc.

    Ike will be back next year. I do agree but a pass rush will help the secondary!
