Come on now, that's just not honest. If anything, the NFL is working actively against teams like the Ravens and the Steelers who claim physical defensive play as their calling cards. Big hits on the QB? No more. Ball-jarring hits on WRs? Sorry, not when they're "defenseless" (which is an undefined term of art that can literally mean anytime the receiver is going for the ball and not paying attention to what's around him). Physical man-to-man coverage in the secondary? PI or illegal contact nowadays.
I'm not even a Pittsburgh fan, and it's pretty easy to see that the NFL isn't exactly being kind to "Steeler Football" these days.
