"The Steelers rebounded in a major way from their brutal loss to the Eagles to turn around and blow out the Chiefs."
The team shined on all three phases of the game and the coordinators sat down to talk a little bit about what went right, what went wrong, and what they’re working on for the Jets.
It’s hard to pick which unit had the better turnaround considering how lopsided both games were in either direction but the defense had a significant bump in their quarterback pressures. If a team’s success is measured on how they respond to adversity then this is definitely a good sign.

Butler also noted that while the 43-14 win was a commanding one, it’s not perfect and they can always do better.
"“It’s a great win to have but we would have preferred to shut them out.” – Keith Butler"
Linebacker Vince Williams had a lot of success stepping in for the injured Ryan Shazier and Butler attributes his performance to his being a “big mouth” and being able to communicate effectively with everyone on the field.
It looks like Williams will have to keep up the big mouth again this week as it’s not looking likely that Shazier will return to face the Jets.
When it comes to having to prepare for the offenses they’ll face, Butler reminds us that they have to go up against the likes of Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown in practice and training camp. In that case there’s no one that should really scare them at all, right?
