Places to assess how a loss is constructed...
First Kickoff--say no more
dropped Picks--Ryan Clark earlier in the game and then Ike Taylor. Couple last weeks drop by Clark when it mattered...these guys are pathetic in that regard.
Defense--its hard to say they are bad because the data just doesn't indicate that. So it's not that they are bad, but all season long there are times when it seems like they take a drive off. Today after getting up 24-17 they let up on the gas
In OT, the pitch on 3rd and 2 was such a stupid call...that is all on BA
I will reserve my comments on Ben--he played very well at times, but you live by holding onto the ball too long and you die by it. The 94 yard pick was a tipped ball so hard to place all the blame on Ben, but it's apparent he needs to change as well.
I have stated in other threads that while the Steelers are good, there just seems to be something missing. I don't see a killer instinct in this team.
