With all the returning players on defense, I'm not worried about them being a one year wonder, they might be better with a improved offense.
"I don’t think it’s coincidence that the season Tomlin starts being more hands on the defense and Butler less, we see a marked improvement all round (not withstanding Minkah’s arrival)."
---Sounds great! BUT, you know this how?
The D had sunk to near bottom during LeBeaus last years. Under Butler it gradually improved the past 3 years. Last year it took a giant leap to near the top.
Most fans [me too] figured the solid draft plus the acquisition of some quality FA's was the reason.
But regardless, whatever the reason, keep it.
Uhh! It's more likely that detractors believe Tomlin started being more hands on the offense [which disappeared] and Fichtner less.
PFF has Javon at 68 in their top 100 players this season based on their grades, number of snaps etc.
I have seen him as high as 29
Some of those guys don’t count towards the cap do they?
I still feel there is room for a true NT in the NFL...
It looked like KC had a good one...
Rumor has it that if we tag Bud, we may lose Vannett, McDonald, Feiler, Finney, and a couple others because of cap casualties...
The Steelers play so much sub-package defence that a true NT might be seen as a bit of a luxury. Hargrave is / was great because he could play right across the line, I think they try to find a guy like him again.
