Let's be real shall we?
Our defense matches up pretty well with Pitt. We played them very tough last year with Tyler ****ing Palko. They have a wounded O-line, their 2X SB winning QB got KO'd, and they were operating with a 3rd string RB from GT (who I love, but is not above average by any stretch of the imagination). Additionally, they were missing their other top 30 WR and were able to beat the Chiefs with a QB who has throwing mechanics that makes Tebow say "Hot damn, is that what I look like? Jesus".
IF you think that our DL is elite or even above average, you're mistaken. While this D can play well at times, this was a D taking advantage of a unique situation and was able to play to it's strengths due to to poor playcalling and a sad misuse of exploitable matchups.
Perhaps we can fly. All of us. How will we ever know unless we leap from some tall tower? No man ever truly knows what he can do unless he dares to leap.
