Does the O, get a lion's share of the this season's failures? No. I think the ST was abysmal and from a numerical standpoint gave our team 5 of the 7 losses we suffered this year.

    The nuts and bolts of the situation is this, our ST gave our opponents numerical supremacy over us, our offense couldn't make up for those lost point differentials and our defense squandered what leads we had late in games. We win as a team, we lose as a team. Plenty of off-season blame to go around. Spinning our wheels at what happened in the past doesn't change historical outcomes. We now need to see where our FO and coaching staff will place the utmost importance of our glaring team needs in the upcoming draft and what limited actions they take in FA.

    Voicing our opinions on all subject matters pertaining to our beloved team is encouraged... but the futile actions of pidgeonholing posters, creates the domino affect of segregating opinions, creating board factions, causing closure of ideas/thoughts from posters of a 'rival' faction, fueling animosity, degrading into flame wars on threads, promoting testosterone filled insults and threats and inevitably crossing the Rules of Engagement line which yields to suspension of board privileges.

    Let's all keep an open mind... to ideas, opinions and posters.
    But how else are we going to have entertainment now that the Steelers off-season has begun?

    Good post.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
