    PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Keith Butler only wishes he was brilliant enough to explain how a defense that struggled to get to the quarterback for two months seemed to have little trouble last Sunday in Cleveland.The same group that managed all of 13 sacks through nine games piled up eight in four dominant quarters against the inept Browns.And heres the thing, Butler figures the number should have been closer to a dozen. So what was it? Scheme? A return to the teams Blitzburgh roots? Savvy coaching? Butler wishes he could take the credit. He cant.If I knew that Id do it every week, Butler said Tuesday. We got after `em a little bit, but at the same time we executed better.Playing the NFLs worst team helped. Yet the Steelers (5-5) believe theres a little more to it. Butler moved defensive end Stephon Tuitt up and down the defensive line, rarely putting him in the same spot on consecutive snaps.Inside linebacker Ryan Shazier was given more freedom to get into the backfield -- sometimes lining up on the outside in search of a mismatch -- and Butler even allowed rookie safety Sean Davis to cause havoc.And Pittsburgh did it with its best defensive player back home dealing with a torn pectoral muscle that ended his season.Watching instead of playing will take some getting used to for Cam Heyward, though hes adjusting to the role of head cheerleader rather quickly.After watching Tuitt pick up 2+ sacks and rookie nose tackle Javon Hargrave belly flopping on a fumble for a touchdown, Heyward issued a well-intentioned dare heading into Thursday nights visit to Indianapolis (5-5), where journeyman quarterback Scott Tolzien appears ready to fill in for the injured Andrew Luck.I challenged them to do it again this week, Heyward said. Now youve seen what you can do, lets keep it going. Lets keep accomplishing goals.The Steelers may have caught a break with Luck unlikely to play while going through the leagues concussion protocol.If Luck sits, that means Tolzien will be the one playing behind an offensive line thats given up 35 sacks, the second-highest total in the NFL even with the mobile Luck under center.Weve had our issues in the past as far as sacks and pressures and things like that, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said.Theyve got a great unit and a great defense coming. We all saw what they did against the Browns and what theyre capable of.And thats kind of been the problem this season for the Steelers, who piled up 48 sacks during Butlers first year as coordinator in 2015, but have failed to create any consistent kind of havoc in the pocket so far in 2016.Initially Butler opted to play it safe while incorporating a slew of new faces into the lineup.Yet even when he started to mix it up in later weeks -- particularly during a four-game losing streak that took all the momentum out of Pittsburghs 4-1 start -- plays that were out there to be made were not.My thing with them is just do your job (and) stop trying to do someone elses job, Butler said. Thats usually what happens when you have a breakdown is you try to overcompensate for what you think is a weakness in the defense instead of just doing your job.The tape from Cleveland showed the message may finally be getting through.Its definitely a game we can build on, Shazier said. We understand we take care of our responsibilities then everything will be taken care of. Guys understand if we do our job, the plays coming our way are going to happen instead of trying to force something.Tolzien hasnt taken a meaningful snap since subbing for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay in 2013. While Pagano stressed Tolzien knows the Indianapolis offense inside and out, he also hasnt been hit when it matters for three years.A little chaos may go a long way for the Steelers as they try to go on another second-half run similar to the ones that carried them to the postseason in 2014 and 2015.We know were capable of more, Davis said. Its just about staying aggressive and paying attention to details.Game notes WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) and RB DeAngelo Williams (knee) are likely out. ... S Jordan Dangerfield (groin) and TE Xavier Grimble (quadriceps) were limited on Tuesday.---For more NFL coverage: and Matt Duffy Jersey.J. -- Josh Cribbs was in the Pro Bowl in February and out of a job six months later. Wilson Ramos Jersey. -- Ryan Getzlaf grabbed the three pucks wrapped in tape and held them up to his chest in the Anaheim Ducks dressing room for a celebration nine seasons in the making. The Cincinnati Reds remain perfect with their speedy rookie outfielder in the starting lineup. Sergio Romo Jersey. A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. Cheap Rays Jerseys For Sale. I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. The #MLBRank project is as much about constructing the history of baseball through its greatest players as it is about debating their merits. When you look at the history of the game, the most iconic players have played for the most iconic teams. Not only that, but they often played for those teams for long, long periods of time.Without revealing too much, the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers and Athletics all have had at least 15 different players in the #MLBRank top 100 spend at least some time with their respective franchises. By combined seasons played by top 100 players, the Giants (134) and Braves (110) join the Yankees (188) and Red Sox (154) as the top four franchises, with those clubs also having sustained runs with at least one top 100 player on their rosters. The longest? The Red Sox from 1946 to 1996. For 51 seasons in a row, BBoston had at least one top 100 player on its roster, transitioning from one star to another.dddddddddddd Almost half of those seasons (23), contained Carl Yastrzemski, the longest-tenured Red Sox player in the top 100.Below are the historical timelines for each modern franchise, indicating the seasons when at least one player in the #MLBRank top 100 played for the club.Seasons with at least one #MLBRank top 100 playerNote: The teams are ordered from oldest franchise to newest, according to Baseball Reference. The Washington Nationals contain data from the Montreal Expos. The Minnesota Twins include seasons as the Washington Senators. The Baltimore Orioles timeline includes years as the St. Louis Browns.
