    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.
    Press coverage looked pretty damn good the last few minutes when the cowboys could have won the game then. Thats all Im going to say. He should have tried it earlier, what the difference if they give up a big play or they play a cushion to where it adds up in 3 passes to a big play? Nothing.

    We need to rotate out the injury prone before they get hurt or replace them with more durable players, good or bad... missing more than 3 games a year isnt helping anyone.. this team never got into sync... OFF or DEF

    If Tomlin is allowed to make this hire? IMO it will be Raheem Morris.
    He won't. Butler will get the job. It's the ONLY reason he has stuck around the last several years when Whisenhunt was trying to poach him to be the Cardinals' DC.

    You can get away with it for a drive or two but once the OC makes the adjustment to the Steelers doing press coverage, they would have been toast. I believe any DC in the league would have played it the same way (obviously no way to prove this).

    I often question the elder statesman but let's be honest.......We had the number one defense in the league. Granted, stats are like sex with a fat woman but the number 1 defense doesn't lie. It's a damn good defense! I think it needs tweaked, but DL is the God of defense and while he continues to generate the best D in the league, I don't want someone who gives us a middle of the pack D!

    Get a new OC or have this OC generate some creativity and the D is fine!

    i think the first half the Def was crap, the second half the offense went into the toilet...

    The swing was a bit of the Troy swing and then the injured Ben swing.. He still cant throw real well. hes acting like hes 100% he looks like 70%

    #1 defense my ***. They spent the least amount of time on the field and they are #8 in points against.

    Imagine where they'd be if the offense didn't hold the ball so much prior to Ben getting hurt.

    This.

    Who the hell could have done any better, given the players that were in place and the injuries they sustained?
