    The titans were 1-4 and on a short week too. They were able to overcome. Just more excuses. The steelers only consistent quality this year is to make crap teams look like sb champions.

    We drafted Gilbert. He's taken out two OL's, a RB (IIRC), and now himself. He looks out of shape and at a weight beyond hope of any agility.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    What are you in my freaking head? I couldn't agree more. I was literally screaming the exact same things during the game. No way you take that chance putting the Titans at midfield, the way the defense was playing. And to put that kind of faith in Suisham in that spot, is just plain stupid. And that's not hindsight, I was yelling at tv to not try a fg there. This season is headed down the drain fast. The Steelers have become the Bengals, on their way to becoming the Browns if they're not careful.

    This team used to thrive during adversity.

    Now it sees we get bogged down in it.

    Almost like the mentallity of the whole defense has changed.

    Disturbing and dissapointing.

    Don't mean to piss on anyone's cornflakes, but apologists and silver-lining peeps need to check themselves. We've climbed the mountain six times and staken our claim on this league as WORLD CHAMPIONS! Anything other than that or at least a competitive hope of that is an unfulfilled season. We've made Carson "I left my ACL with Kimo" Palmer and Matt "Brokeback" Hasselbeck look like SB MVPs. We suck and we need to get young quick.

    I've been wondering if maybe it's the strength coach. Are these guys strong enough. They always seem to be getting pushed back into each other, contributing to the injuries. On the tuck ruke play where Ben got sandwiched, Starks was driven back into Ben, and Colon was tossed to the ground like a rag doll, and Ben got crushed by those respective defenders. They don't seem to be playing at the same strength level as the rest of the league. It's crazy seeing these guys drop like flies.

    Agreed! And I think we are looking at a pick in the next draft from anywhere from 10-15 this year.
    Steelers 2014 Draft

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3-Jordan Tripp ILB/OLB Montana
    4-Christian Jones ILB Florida State
    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma

    The OL and secondary are a complete mess. The offense might improve this year if the line gets somewhat stabilized, but this season is going nowhere. I agree that it was a bad decision by Tomlin to kick that 54-yarder. Out of Suisham's range and if you miss? Well, we saw what happens if you do. Ben missed a couple of key throws too, even though he was under duress when he let go of the ball. Plenty of blame to go around in this game.

    Dude you just pissed in my cornflakes...that's just mean. Kidding aside, I never said there weren't problems (I specifically mentioned the O-Line & the D) - I just said there factors that contributed to the loss & it was not as bad as the Oakland loss. I agree - we've become one dimensional & the defense seems unable to stop anyone, but if Lewis catches that INT the game is over & everyone's talking about how much the team overcame. It isn't being an apologist or silver-lining peep, it's just keeping things in perspective.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    Yeah, a one-man army. He's taken out our brand new OLman, our best OLman, and our best RB. He's singlehandedly done more to wreck our game than anyone else including the opposition. Which dunce keeps him on the field?

    I suspect he's on the Rats' payroll.
