Steelers | LeBeau Tweaking Defensive Scheme

Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau has implemented various packages to improve the team's pass rush this season. "He's not running the same 3-4 we always have had," LB Clark Haggans said. "He's running a whole lot of defenses. He's one of the pioneers of it. He's added to our package. There's a lot of new material." LeBeau, who is credited with the creation of the zone-blitz packages utilized around the NFL today, believes pressure is a key ingredient to a potent defense. "When you play us, you know you're going to get a certain amount of pressure because that's what we believe in," LeBeau said.
