    Great question for Tomlin to answer, to really answer.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    Can Tomlin go out there and play defense? The defense had been playing lights out football for most of the year. They couldn't get the chargers off the field today and that was the difference. It has nothing to do with Tomlin. He had a questionable 4th down call where I would have maybe punted if I were him but you can't fault the guy for trying. Wallace had the huge drop when we needed it the most and the offense didn't get rolling until it was far too late in the game. The fake punt was a huge kick to the balls and then the Ben int was the nail. Stop the fake and don't throw that INT and we maybe win this one. It's not on Tomlin.

    I know a lot of to hate Tomlin, for one reason or another but it's hard to blame a coach who have had 12 win seasons in four straight years. Although it was a bad judgment today to go for it on 4th down. And with all the injuries this year I think he is doing a remarkable job.

    4 out of 6 losses to teams with losing records. Raiders and Chargers absolutely HORRIBLE (with Titans and Browns marginally better). At some point the coaching staff has to take some responsibility for playing like total sh*t against the dregs of the league. May not go to the playoffs b/c they can't beat the worst teams in the league. Today was downright pathetic. An embarrassment.

    remarkable job?

    there is a lot to answer for after a performance like that.

    There is a culture issue in the Steelers world. That's how this one fan sees it.

    We are 0-4 vs the AFC west. Could have reasonably been 3-1 against those teams. It is a concerning pattern, losing to inferior teams.

    OK name me one coach in this league that can one
    1) lose their pro bowl qb 3 games
    2)lose their all pro safety 7+
    3) lose their Two all pro OLB's for most of the season
    And the list goes on and be 7-6. Hell the Bengals haven't lost any one significant and we are above them in the playoffs standing.

    Injuries and inconsistent play. Our defense wasn't playing well to start the season when we lost to the Raiders, just as our defense sh.it the bed today against the Chargers. I once again don't put this on Tomlin. I don't know what he could have done differently. He's not making the defensive calls. He could have punted on 4th down instead of going for it. What else could he have done. Do any of us really believe he's not doing all that he can to prepare the team week after week? He's a coach in the NFL, not an upstart Coaching in the WPIAL. We're banged up and let Rivers throw all over us. Plus the fake punt and then Ben's terribly timed INT. If they don't fake that punt and convert that's a pretty good amount of time back on the clock when our offense was getting some momentum and then the INT. If those two things don't happen we possibly win this game in ugly fashion and head to Dallas. It didn't fall in our favor but once again the Ravens and the Bengals lost.
