    What would you rather have, a great Roethlisberger and good defense, or a good Roethlisberger and a great defense? I am thinking the latter.

    Same. Last four teams that won the Super Bowl had defenses in the top 5 in Points Per Game.





    Side note, for those whose who are under the assumption that I believe a great Ben is a bad thing, all those assumptions arw incorrect. All I am stating is that we hopefully can be in a position where Ben does not have to pull the team out of games anymore.




    It does take a team to win the Super Bowl. It is as Bear Bryant once stated;



    "Offense sells tickets. Defense wins championships."

    What's AB gonna say when interviewed during OTAS? That Ben is showing his age? His zip ain't what it was? He's a little less mobile? Of course not.

    Of course we would take both. Just like we would take 9 hall of famers on the same team.

    Yawn. Didn't someone say that last year? Believe it when we are in the Super Bowl kicking the crap out of the NFC. LOL

    I think both are attainable. That was the point.

    If we look at the 2nd half of last season, the defense actually played at an elite level (stat wise) up and until the patriot game in the playoffs. Knowing this, I'm excited to see what they have up their sleeve this year

    I sure hope so Blast. If there ever was a year to do it, this is it. Who knows what Ben is going to be like come the 2018 season... assuming he even wants to play.

    During the season, we seem to get 3 Roethlisbergers, Great, good and bad. So, I'm up for great defense.

    I don't know that we will make elite.

    But I do believe the combination of having Heyward back, along with improvement by Burns, Davis, Dupree and Hargrave, and Watt vs Jones, we have to be a lot better.

    And I think that will be enough.

    Only if we match Atlantas offense lol.

    Honestly we just need to learn to punch the ball improve on special teams, we will be ok
