Thread: Why Does Everyone Assume...

    Why Does Everyone Assume...

    ...that every team that plays the Steelers is going to play poorly?

    Just because the Chiefs are 1-7, they, somehow, aren't going to try their best to win the game?

    Is it coincidence that the Chiefs played their best football against Pittsburgh, Baltimore and New Orleans?

    If you watched the game at all you saw why the Chiefs are 1-7 and it isn't a lack of talent.

    Turnovers - Although they were cleane throughout the game the interception iced the game for the Steelers and set the Chief at 30 for the season or 3.33 turnovers per game. You won't win in the NFL doing that

    Mental mistakes - Drops on key 3rd downs, penalties to keep Steeler drives alive or put them in a 3rd and longer rather than a 3rd ans short.

    Special teams - the kickoff out of bounds and then the kick return that was bobbled and put them in poor startgin field position led to 10 Steeler points.

    This is the NFL and the difference between 1-8 and 6-3 is miniscule and typically its mental toughness that makes the difference.

    San Diego beat this team 31 -13 a week ago. They are 1-7 for a reason - They are not good. Matt Cassell is not a starting QB in this league (or shouldn't be). Steelers should have handeld this game better than they did. O came out looking terrible and really never got better (a lot of that is b/c Ben went out). Looked indifferent for a good bit of the game. They got a W b/c KC is so terrible and couldn't get oou of their own way. Thank goodness.

    Once again I agree with you. All teams have the talent to compete in the league.

    If this is true, then why can't any team overlook any other team in the NFL? Why is the axiom "any given Sunday"?

    Because every single team has the talent to compete...period...

    If the Steelers aren't as good as their 6-3 record, the Chiefs certainly aren't as bad as their 1-8 record...

    I agree with all the above. Don't forget however the weather. It neutralized much of our offense and helped even the field.

    I was there last night, the weather was ugly most of the game.

    At the beginning of the season KC was picked to win the AFC west by alot of folks. Every game is a battle in the NFL. We got a win and that's all that was needed.
