When askedwhy he won’t implement more against the Steelers, hisanswer was simple. “Probably because of number 17, Mike Wallace. He’s aspecial guy and you have to respect what he does. And Idon’t want a bad matchup with 17, who’s averaging 20 yardsa catch, running deep on us.”I like that a coach is being a coach. Horton respects hisguys and their ability but he doesn’t want to go one stepforward, two steps back with this defense. It seems to methat Horton understands the importance of confidence inthis league. He understands that they have pride and wereembarrassed when the defense was scaled down but he alsounderstands that confidence is important when trying tomove forward.“I think if you look the guys are really starting to pickup the defense and starting move a lot faster and there’sless mental mistakes,” Horton said. “And now we just gottawin because they are getting close to being really what wewant them to be.”Again, only time will tell. We’ve been saying that a lotthis season with the defense and the offense.
