Recently, I read and reported that this 2007 Steelers defense has given up less points through 5 games than both the 1975 and 1978 Super Bowl winning Steel Curtain defenses. If you didn't read it - 47 points in 5 games vs. 48 and 51 points for the dynasty squads respectively. Of course, as Steeler fans, we all kind of expect dominating defense, and when we're anything less than oppressive, we all have a good cry about it.
So it's not surprising that NOW, all anyone wants to talk about is how spotless our defensive performance has been. When I sat down to post last night, I took a look around the interwebs to get some inspiration, and everywhere I looked I found articles about the DEFENSE. And not just all about the same aspects of the defense, but at least a few distinct facets that intrigued me.
