You draft heavy on the defense.
ILB.
FS
OLB / DE. PASS RUSHER
CB


You bring in a FA ILB
You fire Butler.
You get a defensive minded / smart DC.
Who returns the attack the QB and tackle mentality back

Good point Stosh - wasn't the guy that the 49ers cut available when Shaz went down? Oh that's right, he wasn't from Pittsburgh and he didn't play for the Steelers before so no way we could use him.

But Stosh they weren't the '76 Steelers with Shazier on the field.

I just wonder if Art2 is as sick as this shit as I am - I mean unbelievable piece of shit defense.

Can't disagree with this line of thinking. A lot to be disappointed by in this game but the defense first and foremost couldn't come up with a big play to save their lives. As much as I loved him as a player it's time to really question what joey Porter brings to the table as a coach. None of our OLBs have developed into anything resembling a pro bowler

I think NT needs to get added to that list, especially with McCullers a FA. Hargrave basically got handed the job since McCullers was in no way any competition. Draft a NT who can compete with Hargrave. The run D is a huge weakness.

It needs to be said...Javon Hargrave fucking sucks!

Everybody was high on Hargreaves, but he is mis-cast as a 3-4 NT, he’s overmatched and pushed out of the hole far to often.
Vita Vea would do wonders for the front seven.

should have dumped Porter when they had a chance and grabbed KG.

You can the DC.

Butlers defensive design is flawed if he cant stop anyone when he loses one player.

They have nobody that can pursue to the sideline, no way to cover a TE, no way to cover an RB, no way to generate edge pressure. He is a former LB coach and he has failed to utilize plenty of LB talent to run a coherent scheme.

Dump the odd front, dump Assler


"Assler" Is this a Still Mill sighting?

If you motherfuckers honestly can't see that the coordinators aren't the problem, then fuck me, you're beyond help.

Butler Haley and Smith should all be fired. if Tomlin aint willing to do it or not on board with all of the above he should get canned as well, and the only reason I don't can Tomlin is that I don't trust that we'd make the right choice and upgrade on him. Tomlin need top tier Coordinators and an assistant coach who is there only for game mgmt. decisions, Tomlin is clearly incapable of making the smart percentage choice, tired of his gut calls.

Is there a precedent of a division winning coach firing both coordinators in an off season? If the owner wants to get rid of both it usually includes the Head man.

We all know it ain't happening on the south side, just curious...
