I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I know that tone does not really come across via blog/post. I am not being a sarcastic dillweed. How are the steelers, with all of their previous documented struggles on defense, ranked so high in many of the defensive categories?

  • Shannon Stephenson

    Our offense has been pretty proficient this year and has had the ball the majority of the time limiting the other teams offense…so there overall numbers against us have not been stellar…just the final results.

  • Brendon Glad

    I haven’t been as “down” in the secondary as many of my close Steeler friends. I think they have been forced into coverage for an extra half-second or so because of less pressure, and it has shown up. Mind you, I don’t LOVE the secondary, but I haven’t since 1994. But I don’t hate it either…even when Troy is out. They are average, but not terrible in my opinion. Sure wish they could catch though

  • Brendon Glad

    And I’m not gonna pick on Ike cuz I like him more than most, I bet…but isn’t it funny that one of the best ball-hawks of this era (Charles Tillman) played at Louisiana Lafayette with Ike? He clearly wasn’t and hasn’t been sharing any secrets lol!!!

  • Tim Culligan

    I was wondering the same thing. I think it’s that our defense isn’t as bad as its made out to be, and more importantly the time of possession. It’s not that we’re getting off the field quickly (opposite actually) but the offense has very very long drives.
