I see the same thing Scunge. I see a defense with LeBeau remnants combined with Tomlin influences. Obviously it has no place in the NFL the way it's set up now, well..., last season anyway. Teams figure out where to target the weaknesses for better success. Having one do-it-all star player [in the past Polamalu, until recently Shazier] in this era of the NFL won't work anymore. There needs to be more of a 'hive' mentality IMHO. Contributions from all over the defense has to be the goal. Tuitt and Heyward up front last season did a lot of the dirty work with the occasional VWill and Hilton contribution. The secondary outside of Haden [when he was playing] and Hilton was woefully below average. LB's were..., well, where were they? I agree for the most part the defense is in some sort of transition. What that is I haven't a clue.

You guys act like our defense was brutally bad last year. It was closer to being good than awful.
For most fans, those long runs, runs for first downs on 3rd and 9, and long pass plays over 30 yards coupled with allowing over 40 pts to Jacksonville kinda outweighs any good stats or what the the defense did the rest of the season.

The defense played decent with shazier against some pretty shitty QBs early on
They folded completely without shazier against quality or physical Os

They also folded against a shitty QB in Chicago with Shazier.

If they do it
IMO it's more a reflection of the current troubles at LB and not Dupree real worth

Gave up 17 whole points in 4 quarters.

Eli Rogers muffed a punt at our 29 leading to points.

We also had the blocked field goal where the Bears got the ball at our 1, 3 easy points that ST gave up right before the end of the half.

They absolutely did their job that game. We lost because Ben and the offense shit their pants on the road against a crappy opponent, as we’ve seen plenty of times before.

Well..., I suppose the same can be said for those of you that feel like the defense was good. They couldn't stop the run. At. All!
When has there been a Steelers defense in recent history that was unable to stop the run as horribly? Then add to that those ever common long pass plays where the dumb asses in the secondary got smoked brutally and embarrassed. Like I stated before. They broke a fucking franchise sack record. Big fucking whoopty doo. Where did that get them? :lol:

I want to stop the run. Defend against the pass by forcing the QB to hold onto the pigskin longer. Creating splash play opportunities like INT's, FF's, pressures and sacks. Or, just Get off the field on 3rd downs. I don't care about franchise records unless they result in Championships.

That is exactly my point about One player they expect superhuman effort from like Troy in the past and Ryan until injury. After those two super star players left the field the defense(s) seemed stale and easily beatable to the point of humiliating ass whoopings. More of a hive mentality is needed. Depth is critical, FC stated in the part 2 podcast. Without Depth I don't see the Steelers making any Championships while Ben is still under center.

And also gave up 222 rushing yards to a team that had as close to zero threat of the pass as you’ll get in today’s NFL.

Don’t know what your definition of “folded” is but when a defense can’t stop an extremely limited & one dimensional offense like the Bears they will fit my definition of the term.

I don’t disagree with you about the offense with the exception that I’d say they sucked TOO that day.

Being so busy figuring out where they stood socially on the whole kneel or stand thing was obviously too much for them to do AND play a football game that day.

You can deflect to the O all you like. The D was poor that day - thy got steamrolled via the run against a team they Knew was going to run all day or throw short. That’s why I mentioned shitty play vs quality Os and Physical Olines/RBs. The D needs work - the O is less a function of poor play IMO as it is choice of plays and pace. Hopefully the new OC will bring change although I doubt it

12 drives in regulation: 3 scores allowed, one was a 29 yard drive, one was a 1 yard drive. Their drives that day in regulation:

3 plays, -1 yard
6 plays, 29 yards
6 plays, 21 yards
6 plays, 12 yards
9 plays, 75 yards
1 play, -4 yards
3 plays, -2 yards
2 plays, -1 yards
10 plays, 33 yards
3 plays, 3 yards
8 plays, 38 yards

One drive over 38 yards. WTF do you want, the 2001 Ravens? They did their job.
