DA was money on that pass.
I keep pondering if DA started the whole 2nd half would the outcome be different?
You could have had Peyton Manning at QB, and we would have been battling from behind all night.
The Panthers touted #1 defense looked like the Jaguars defense until they had their backs against the goal line. Then that stopped after the defense was wore out in the second half. Horrible defensive game plan. No defensive adjustments. The steelers were dancing in the backfield to work that DL throughout the game and make the Panthers LBs commit early to a lane. Teams tried to do that to the Panthers last season, but we had this one player the would come barreling down the DL and blowing that strategy up down the line of scrimmage. That would be Hardy and now we have no DL that makes a RB pay for dancing in the backfield.
I hope the defense gets corrected, because the Steelers just showed the league how to exploit the Panthers front 7. All I can hope is that it was poor preparation and game planning by the coaches that led to all the misreads on defense.
