And he was a workhorse in college. Oh well. Can't fix an inferior brain, in terms of just being lazy and soft.

#1, we need a D-coordinator who can actually make the necessary adjustments based on what the other team is doing.
#2, team loyalty is nice, but we need to get some low-production players off the field. Sure, some of their replacements are unproven, but in some cases, it's hard to see how they could perform any worse than the guy that's been playing.
#3, we need to send the message that, just because you got a big contract, doesn't mean your job is safe. Woodley, Timmons, Hampton, Ike, and yes, even Troy and Harrison, all underperforming relative to the big $$$ they're getting paid. Cut one of 'em and send a message. I'd start with Hampton.
Steeler fans have been openly critical of Wallace and have repeatedly stated that AB is better. They are hush hush on the AB fumble because it hurts their agenda. The Defense has a few bad outing and all hell breaks loose. How long has our D carried our inconsistent offense? How many 13-10 games has our D pulled out? Stop
Troy and the D put us in position to win the game. Did you forget about the pick6? Is that on the D? You mentioned guys not playing up to their contracts so how come you didnt mention the qb? Didnt Ben throw for 32 Td in 07? He got rewarded with a 100 million dollar contract as a result. How many times has he thrown for 30 since? NONE. 20 and 17 TD passes???? I think we can get that from Leftwich. If you're going to call out the D, then to be fair, you must call out the inconsistent offense too. Our offense is inconsistent and has been for over 10 years
