    Default Lebeau's last season ?

    I'm working over, stopped at the bar up the street for dinner and they where talking Steelers football of course. One said it was sad to know that this is Lebeaus last season. I asked where they heard that and they all said he reported that information during his HOF speech. Is this true because this is the first I heard about it.

    Actually, I never heard that during his speech... I posted the transcript of the speech on the board, so here's the link and you can decide for yourself... I didn't hear that at all...

    Thanks NY. I never heard it or I'm not hearing it. Yeah, I walked into the topic of our future 4/3 defense when Lebeau retires after this season. I don't believe he is going anywhere but, why does everyone assume we will be a 4/3 defense when Lebeau does retire ? Lebeau is a genius with the 3/4 but, it doesn't have to end with him.

    I always thought the 3/4 defense allowed for talented linebackers over talented linemen. More or easier to stock your team with good linebackers than it is to come up with a solid front four. To me this stuff goes in cycles and eventually the 4/3 will come back around and to some young fans someday, they'll think it's new to the game.

    I think it's staying 34 beyond DL's tenure. I have a theory behind it too but not getting into it right now because I just woke up from a long nyquil induced sleep lol. Also what the hell do I know but I think he will be around longer or as long as his health is good. I have heard him say that several times.

    I didn't see anything from the transcript either that suggested that he was going to be retiring and you know that if there were something the media would've pounced all over it.

    There doesn't seem to be any signs of Lebeau stepping down..right now. He's accomplished everything and still is coaching so there's really no achievement type of motivation remaining for him. I think that the guy just enjoys doing this and can buy into his whole "health permitting" argument

    I haven't been back to that bar but when I do I'll tell them how full of it they really are.
