Remember Bizarro World? No, not the planet in DC comics where superhero’s are the opposite of what the are on Earth. (Excuse me while I push up my nerd glasses) I’m talking about the Sunday comic strip just below Garfield where there’s a twisted spin on the reality of some pop culture topic – usually funny but always guaranteed to be just weird.
Well the Steelers are currently living in Bizarro World… unfortunately no one is laughing. It’s just weird.
The Steelers have been in the top five in rush defense for the past decade. They are also known as one of the best rushing offenses in the league. They are also known as having one of the worst passing defenses in the league. Well let me lay a stat or two down for you:
Would you believe me if I ever told you that the Steelers through three weeks would have the best passing defense in the league? Well be prepared for that spit take – they are #1 in passing defense in the league. They rank 12th in rush defense (not terrible but not characteristic of this team). They rank 8th in the pass and 23rd in rushing offense – now who would have thought that too? Bizarre.
So I ask of you Steelers Nation – What is more surprising?
