Reactionary in response to a startling lack of defense exemplified in last year's playoffs and in several games this year. 12 game win streak is nice, yes. I don't know if you'll find many Pittsburgh fans secure with their defense come playoff time.

Drastic because in my opinion, Doug Murray for 2 seconds is an overpayment.
