Emulating Broncos Defense
The Denver Broncos rebuilt and re-tooled a defensive unit that got flat-out embarrassed in Super Bowl XLVIII by the Seattle Seahawks. The Broncos rode into that game with a high-powered offense only to get it handed right back to them. In two short years they turned it around to build one of the most impressive defensive runs in NFL history.
There should be no excuse for the Steelers to be able to fill their glaring defense deficiencies relatively quickly while they’ve got the potent offense they’ve got. After all, defense does still win championships, doesn’t it?
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler suggests that the one thing stopping the Steelers defense from morphing into the Broncos defense is the lack of a Von Miller. Neither Jarvis Jones nor Bud Dupree has proven their ability to be the pass rushing monster that Miller is. That’s a true statement.
It’s also true that there’s no time like the present. Jones and Dupree have plenty of time to watch tape and get nasty with the goal of going after quarterbacks in mind as soon as they hit the grass this summer. I want them to get into fights over which one gets to knock down the quarterback first.
