ARE WE A TAMPA 2 OR STEEL CURTAIN DEFENSE

Hey all, love reading this everyday.  There are so many great and inciteful people posting....My thought is, could our defensive issues in the second half be self inflicted?  By that I mean, Tomlin comes from the old 'Tampa 2' system right?  In all our loses this year, we've been beaten primarly with big pass plays in the middle of the field.  The cover 2 defense is built to STOP big plays everywhere BUT the middle of the field unless you have a dynamic playmaker roving around there...That plus pressure on the Qb...Now in the first half of games, we seem to be able to pressure the Qb with our front 7 and play our regular (somewhat) solid pass def...As we've all seen in the 2nd half(or anytime we have a lead) we seem to give up a lot of plays infront of us!  This goes all the way back to the super bowl!  How easy was that td to Larry? I've also noticed, the last 6 or so games, that our 'great pass rush' becomes just a bunch of guys all running to the same spots every down!  No gap control, no contain, nothing..This is my first post and I'd be real interested in reading other peoples thoughts on this...I think Tomlin is exerting too much influence on 'our' defense and trying to make it 'his' defense!  As we all know, our corners will never be all-pro but I have NEVER seen so many plays where so many people are consistantly out of position....Your thoughts/comments please...
