Pittsburgh Steelers still having trouble getting to the quarterback

It’s widely known that the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, the one designed by defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, is predicated on putting pressure on the quarterback and forcing him into mistakes. LeBeau’s theory has always been that if you give a passer enough chances to make a mistake on a drive, sooner or later, he’s going to make a mistake. For a good number of years, this...

Dick LeBeau Says Cortez Allen Needs To Show His Ball Skills During Games

Like It or Not, the Steelers Must Prepare for Life Without LeBeau

Everyone agrees the Pittsburgh Steelers are in serious need of a defensive overhaul. The unit has gotten old, slow, fat and injured and change has been needed. It is expected that the team will focus heavily on the defensive side of the ball in the upcoming draft and with little depth in the secondary and on the defensive line, this decision is hard to argue.

Could the Pittsburgh Steelers be on the prowl for a nose tackle in the draft?

In the 3-4 scheme of Dick LeBeau and the Pittsburgh Steelers, having a strong nose tackle is a must. For the better part of the last decade-plus, the man clogging the middle was none other than Mr. Casey Hampton. And he was a wall. A big, unmovable wall. But the Steelers released the aging Hampton before last season started. Statistically the Steelers ranked 21st in stopping the...
