Watching the Steelers made me jealous. The difference between them--an established team with veteran talent that's very fundamentally strong and capable of demoralizing bad teams--and us was palpable.
That team is well coached, disciplined, and full of good players.
The defense is impressive. The line is pretty great with Hampton, Heyward, and Chewbacca. The linebackers are the soul of the team as always. And the secondary is disciplined. They even had that silly trick play with RGIII running a route perfectly covered.
I would try and sign Ryan Mundy, see if some of that Steeler discipline rubs off on the others. He's probably hungry and looking for his shot at a major role.
I can't wait until the day comes when we've cultivated our own talent like that. First we need speed though. Pittsburgh is big and aggressive and physical, but they're still fast. Their receivers are burners and everyone in their defensive front can run. I'd love for us to eventually get a blazing, physical interior LB like CJ Mosley to be the tone setter for our defense. I'd love to get some physical zone corners that are actually smart and can press the LoS. I'd love for us to get a powerful, huge DL like they've got, that can also zone blitz and stunt really well.
And I'd love to get some receivers who can actually catch some freaking perfectly thrown passes, let alone go out and make plays on poorly thrown passes.
