He's not delusional, some fans are
The points and yardage given up last week in the 4th quarter were during extended garbage time. 2 busted plays gave Spiller his big day.
Steelers ran the ball almost 30 times and only put up 66 yds, without Revis, Pitt was able to move the ball a bit through the air, but really, take away that prayer 50 yarder away from Wallace on 3rd and 16, a play that Cro should have had and was in position to make a play, the offense numbers look a lot better.
The point is this year's Jets D has shown big improvements from last year, especially in talent, speed, and athleticism, and along the DL, Rex isn't far off, it's only been two games.
