    or Woodley/Ogeltree outside...

    I think Ogletree can play ILB or OLB
    How would an ILB make a DE look better?

    I remember years of farrior busting into a hole towards the QB making the QB run left or right and then rushed by the OLB...

    We used to have our 4 LB's and safeties jumping around in the box and then dispursing all around to confuse the D.. We havent been doing that... We are not fooling any OL, we just dont have the speed. Foote is not real quick..

    But when we had a quick set of LB's that seemed to help everyone on the DL...

    Instead, the FO chooses to let talented high round draft choices walk away with no compensation. I hope I'm wrong, but it seems Mendy and Wallace are gone with nothing to show for them. Saddest part is the fans who are all for it.

    yea, that hole existed because Aaron and Casey occupied 3 or 4 blockers... the ILB does not make the DE look better

    4 quick LBs and 3 DL men are a team they make each other look good..

    We have a slow Foote and a limping woodley and an old Harrison... and your worried about our DL?

    We need LB's ILB and OLB

    We have Woods, Hood, Heyward, alamadatammuuu all young.

    foote played really well last year....sure he can be upgraded but id have a hard time laying the blame on him for the defensive problems.

    pass rush needs to be handled, but heyward and keisel need to be the ends and may the best man between hood, woods, mcclendon, and fangupu win the NT battle.

    casey hampton looked like he was winding down for years around when tomlin was hired, but he had a heroic last wind in his career but he was terrible last season...the fact that he was getting snaps over some of these guys was ridiculous

    Pass rush and creating more TO's and this team would of been set IMO, so I'd say just a few tweaks on D is needed..

    Schematically... you're wrong.

    Agreed on all 3 points

    I don't see how Hood can keep a starting DE job. He is awful.

    Also agree that NT, should be a camp battle between all available bodies. Frankly, all available DL should be in competition... Al Woods~!! Come one!! Beast.

    I don't know why anyone would complain about Foote... he quietly executes. Sure, and upgrade would be nice, but I'd just as soon re-sign him for cheap and start him again. Not a weak link

    Again, none of us would be too upset if the Front Office used the first two picks on the linebacker positions.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.
