I made an argument a few weeks ago that perhaps we draft dumb players. Is it really all Lake's fault?

How come Lake was able to get Haden to learn the defense so quickly? How come Mike Hilton excelled as a first year player and made very few mental errors?

Coaches can't do everything. They certainly can't shed blocks or tackle for you and that was a big problem this year. I'm not so sure the busted coverages were Lake's fault or just the players being dumb.

I think Philly is a well coached team. We all agree on that after Sunday. Yet, their secondary was completely lost during the SB. Pats receivers were running free like gazelles in the wild. The Eagles actually were WORSE than even last year's Steelers during the AFC Championship game were our secondary was breaking down left and right.

At the end of the day, players have to understand scheme, study film, and know their role in the defense (ie. when to switch off and when not to).


It seemed as if Burns and Davis spent too much time thinking instead of having their instincts take over. One play they looked like world beaters and then the next totally inept. From what was on tape it seemed that they really suffered w/ zone concepts and what to do at times. Mitchell was just inept out there. Very disconcerting.

That was/is wrong...cowher was still better at it, and no doubt has a say, a rather large one id say


Like when he ran off Bobby April? I beg to differ.

The genius of Joe Walton?

PFT says we are talking to Karl Dunbar (Jets assistant) as D-line coach.

Good. I want to see more shakeup on the defensive side of the coaching. John Mitchell. Don't give me that bullshit that he is a great coach. I remember a story where Cam Heyward went to Tomlin to get his blessing to spend time in the offseason learning how to be a better pass rusher at a former NFL players camp, and wondered to myself, why does he have to do that? Why can't Mitchell teach his players everything they need to know?

I look at the emergence of Cam as a pass rusher this season and can't really see Mitchell getting any credit for it. Cam was hungry for knowledge and skill, of techniques and he had to look elsewhere to get that knowledge, and look, once he got that coaching, he produced a 12 sack season. That is pretty damning to me. Mitchell needs to go, too mired in the 3-4, we need a defensive line coach that can teach our players how to pass rush and not just be two gap defensive linemen.

I don't want to see any more former players hired. They all have expertise in a 3-4 and we need to get away from that defense. They need to start bringing in more 4-3 guys. We need a defensive back coach that knows how to teach players man to man coverages yes, but we need our players to get more fundamentally sound from a tackling standpoint too. I would love to see us hire an old veteran defensive backs coach, we need to hire a Richard Mann type for the secondary.

Waking up to news of Karl Dunbar interested in Steelers DL job. Idea of John Mitchell retiring is crushing.

I never heard any BS about salary. He's bounced around every since. Our ST have been ass every since. So no, it wasn't a correct decision by any measure unless you are a Cower apologist.

Scunge....good call on this, now moving forward.

Is Karl Dunbar a good D-Line Coach and does this possibly mean a switch to a 4-3 Defense?

Corey Raymond is mentioned on a site as a possibility for DB coach. Not sure if he is considered or not.

Raymond would be a great hire....He is ahead of the game when it comes to coaching technique.

He is another fiery personality

Sometimes good players only need to be coached better.
