If you a Steelers fan or statistics junkie (or both), head on your to this post at One For The Other Thumb. Although the article looks at both sides of the football, the numbers for the Steelers 2010-11 defense are pretty amazing:
– The Steelers D gave up 276.8 yards per game, second in the league.
– They also gave up a league-low 14.9 points per game.
– They also gave up only 1,004 rushing yards ALL SEASON, which is the least in Steelers history… all the more amazing when you consider that the former record holders played four fewer games than this team!
– And, not to leave the offense out in the cold, my main man Mike Wallace “only” came in 5th in the league with 1,257 receiving yards… but all the folks above him had 76 or more catches. Wallace had only 60. He has the most receptions of 40+ yards in the league, and tied Steelers legend John Stallworth for most 100+ yard games in a season… and this is only Wallace’s second season!
