    What scares me is that we only got 2 of those 14 sacks--both of them by Williams.

    76 sacks is 28 less than the record for sacks given up in a season (although spread over 2 QB's)...

    And how to disguise blitzes and fake blitzes so that the offense doesn't know what's coming.

    Disgusing a blitz has a lot to do with the players...

    That's why some QB's are better at play fakes than others...

    The guys on the field have to sell it...

    Yeah, but Ben didn't have to throw much against the Texans. Given the drubbing and that the Texans were playing from behind, it was stunning to get 2 full boogie sacks.

    It was at that point I thought the Steelers pass blocking was in trouble. I had no idea how bad of trouble until the Eagles game....an away game for the Steelers.

    And..it's the coaches jobs to put the players in positions to "sell it".

    All a coach can do is call it...

    Is that not putting them into position ?

    Call it, defensive scheme adjustments, or what ever else you want to call it.

    Not if it's the wrong call or scheme. Is dropping Weaver, TJ or Mario into coverage the right call? Not to me it isn't

    Bouncing Mario along the Dline to "pick his *****" looked promissing as long as he's rushing the passer on freakin 3rd downs.

    I thought we were talking about players selling blitzes...

    Plenty teams drop D-linemen in pass covereage...Yes...even their best pass rushers on occasion...

    Some teams do it, but it is usually only productive when you have an excellent pass rushing OLB like Harrison for Pittsburgh. Doing it with Greenwood rushing is damn near absurd. Even more teams realize sending Strahan, Allen, Osiumenyura (wtf?) or Freeney at the QB is their highest potential. Let the other team scheme for the best player and then scheme something to take advantage of the weakness created elsewhere. So I am not totally against the idea, but with our personnel it is dumb.
