The Pittsburgh Steelers history at defense is as impeccable as any other NFL team, and now we compare the best of the past decade.

Know-how in movies & TV shows plots themselves or stories of individual characters within the films “come into full circles.” In the beginning, we as an audience are given either a symbolic image or personality trait, for example, that affects their surroundings, and throughout the whole story, things occur to bring into fruition at the end of what was hinted in the beginning. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they boasted a defense in 2010 that accomplished a feat that has only been done three times in franchise history since 1990.

In comparison, the events that take place from start to end may not be as bright for an NFL team instead of a movie, especially over a ten-year mark. Windows for championships are usually 3-4 years long, & changes for head coaches & GMs typically exist in that same timeframe.

However, the Steelers mark of consistency, being one of three teams to remain with the same HC & GM combo since 2010, makes this all but more interesting. A decade worth of transactions and draft picks, things ended how they began, but who can claim the team’s best?
