Had the pass rush of the game

4th and 7, game on the line

3 man rush....he plowed the center back into Stafford causing a bad throw and basically ending the game.

How huge was that? 3 man pass rush there, dropping 8 into coverage was a ballsy decision. Hargrave made that decision look awesome.

Very good point. He had at least two guys on him, maybe three as I recall.

Without that effort they convert that fourth down.

A herculean effort to be sure.

I watched Hargrave a lot last night. He was a beast. Obviously, Watt, Haden, and Hilton have changed the defense. But, Gravedigger has been an unsung hero especially considering Tuitt has missed a ton of time.

They nailed the Hargrave draft pick. Like they nailed Burns, Davis, Watt, and Juju. Great drafting last couple of years have really turned around the D.

Too bad they missed badly on Dupree. I had to watch another night of him stuffed on pass rushes or running the great loop around Cape Horn.

Bud Dupree collapsed the pocket on that play from the QBs blind side which pushed Stafford up into Hargrave

Once Tuitt is back that DLine will be beastly. Hargrave is a wrecking ball up the gut. Heyward is still a great end producing pressure after pressure. It was great to see Dupree add pressure last night. I admit I haven't been the biggest Dupree fan as of late. He seems to be a little more consistent as the season goes on. Running Watt from OLB to MLB last night I thought was brilliant. That man can jump and gets elevated. Wanted to see Deebo contribute last night but was disappointed. He sat on the bench all night. Chickillo and Moats were embarrassing. Not so much Chickillo as Moats. Moats is terrible. Could be Moats' last season in B&G.

That's generous of you. He did take on a double team but just did his loop and fell to his knees. In my opinion, I don't think he impacted Stafford much at all. It was just Hargrave steamrolling the center and Stafford panicked.

Bud Dupree is a bust. Maybe not Jarvis level but his ceiling is mediocre OLB. Like every blind squirrel he finds a nut once in a while.

Looks like Tarzan plays like Jane.

The two keys to having a good edge rush: (a) having decent edge rushers and (b) pressure up the middle preventing the QB from stepping up. Hargrave and Dupree worked in unison last night on 4th and 7th.

Overall though I thought the Steelers pass rush underperformed last night

Mostly agreed, but I think in part because we played a soft zone and not enough man. Butler turtled.
