    Disagree. Sacks are important because a lot of sacks translates into even more pressures. When we were top 3 in sacks every year, don't remember anyone saying the stat was overrated then.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    We're the #1 defense in the league so could you explain how going to a 4-3 D improves on that ?
    It's no fun when the rabbit has the gun

    We would need to draft someone for the middle

    WLB - Timmons
    MLB - XXXX
    SLB - Spence/Sylvester

    DE - Woodley
    DE - XXXX/Worrilds
    DT - Hood
    DT - McClendon/Heyward/Taamu
    This right here ... and 4-3 LBs aren't as coveted as pass rushing 3-4 ... so you can get one in RD2 or RD3 much easier ... Think Author Brown from Kansas State in round 3 ...

    Or depending where we end up draft pick wise ... giving up a 3rd to secure Te'o is much easier then ... because you don't have OLB and ILB a need ...

    situational football is more important than the overall generic stats your using

    How many games were lost where the Steelers were leading or tied in the 4th quarter?

    Being unable to generate consistent pressure from a 4 man rush is a major achilles's heel in the 4th quarter

    Look at what Cinci's front 4 did in the 4th quarter... lets do that. lol

    moving to a 4-3 would also bring some of the high end DT prospects into the picture in the 1st round (Hankins... DROOOOL)

    The fraudulent #1 in Yards a game , means nothing ... because I'm pretty sure we dominate Time of Possession on Offense

    Just by watching games the Steelers D is absolutely not #1 D ... I would easily take the 49ers D or Seahawks D ... don't get me wrong the Steelers D is good though

    But Just looking at what Tomlin came from ... and his drafts have made more sense for a 4-3 Team ... is why I'm saying this

    It would Definitely put your boy Dion Jordan much more in the picture too ... as well as Ziggy Ansuh (maybe spelling error)

    So when the offense holds the ball for 6 minutes to start a game the defense gets the credit?

    I agree. I would love to have a 49ers or Seahawks defense that plays with speed, pressure, attacking, and hard hitting.
