    Warren Sapp: Pittsburgh Steelers' D still 'old and slow'

    Dough boys at it again. I guess he thinks if he keeps saying it he might be right sooner or later.







    Apparently, Warren Sapp isn't finished talking about the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense.



    Back in 2011, the NFL Network analyst made enemies galore in the Steel City when he slammed Pittsburgh's aging D after a Week 1 drubbing at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.
    "They're old and slow," Sapp told "The Dan Patrick Show," saying he saw "old, ornery veterans get whooped" up and down the field.
    Asked Wednesday on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" if he'd still call the Steelers' defense "old and slow," Sapp didn't hesitate.
    "Old and slow? Yes, I would," Sapp said. "Because seven of the 11 starters are 28 years or older, and that's around the time, in this league, they go to questioning, you know, 'Where's his legs? Should we look for the backup?'
    "And Brett Keisel, bless his soul, No. 99 in your program, No. 1 in your heart, he turns 35 the first month of the year. And three of the four secondary guys there are 32 years old or older."


    Yes, the Steelers are flooded with blue hairs, but we doubt they're listening. That "old and slow" Pittsburgh defense started out ugly in 2011 but finished as the NFL's top unit. For an encore, the Steelers went out and did it again last season.
    The constant here is 75-year-old defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who has been coaching since Richard Nixon roamed the White House and probably doesn't watch much NFL Network. LeBeau just coaches. Old players, slow players and some of the league's best.

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united steeler nation.
    And to the franchise for which it stands. One nation of domination
    With the ability to crush you all.

    Nothing like being the top ranked defense in football to signal old and slow.

    Now "old" is 28 lol. I guess he considers LaMarr Woodley "old" lol. The only old players on the starting D are Kiesel, Foote, Troy, Clark and Ike. Troy and Ike certainly aren't slow, and when has Brett Kiesel ever been fast? Foote is slow, sure, but playing the Buck it's not THAT important to fast.

    The NFL channel is all about the 9ers, Pats, Griffin, Manning, Jets, Tebow, Dallas, Harbughs, Broncos, Wallace/Miami then they recycle same teams new topics.

    When Wallace was a Steeler he was never talked about...

    I laughed to myself when they interviewed Maurkice Pouncey today on NFL-AM. First question they asked him wasn't related to the Steelers. It was about - you guessed it - his college QB.

    BTW Maurkice said that Mike Adams had stopped by practice yesterday, which was good to hear that he was out and about.
