What are you talking about, spin? They were DURING THE REGULAR SEASON, the number one ranked defense in the league. I never questioned that.
What I have questioned from the beginning is how people can pretend that the defense that was out there for the Steelers during that playoff game was the exact same unit that earned that #1 ranking......or even a reasonable facsimile. It wasn't even close. Had THAT unit played all 16 regular season games, their ranking probably would've been somewhere in the 20s.
