    I don't know who to blame...but I wish someone would get this fixed!!!

    I will say I was not a fan of him going for it on 4 and 1 at the 50 before half time...based on the performance of the offense I felt we had no chance of converting....

    That call didn't bother me... I don't mind Tomlin being aggressive when we are stinking it up...

    Why did Tomlin keep Ben in the game at the end if we weren't gonna try and win by going for 2 pts when down by 24?

    Unfocused...undisciplined...unprepared. Too many games this season, that's been the case. The blame isn't all on the HC, but at least a significant portion has to be.

    Oh, and some real bone-head in-game decisions. Not a very good season for Coach Tomlin.

    Not getting enough help from his coordinators either, IMO.

    The same reason the Saints kept Brees in down by 20pts with 3minutes left in the game.

    But Ben is dealing with an injury.

    This guy agree with some of us: Tomlin _has_ to carry most of the blame. There is no other person to blame. He is the HEAD COACH and this team plays flat and unfocused vs. the worst teams in league.

    From Dulac at the Post Gazette. People here saying the coach takes some blame are just saying what people paid to follow the team are saying. Ron Cook called it an embarrassing loss, the worst of the season. Both are correct.

    COACHING

    It was an embarrassing performance for a team that should have received a lift from Charlie Batch's comeback performance in the second half in Baltimore. The offensive line couldn't protect Roethlisberger, the defense couldn't stop the Chargers from converting third downs and the Steelers couldn't beat a team that had lost eight of its past 10 games. But this has been a recurring theme with the Steelers, who have now lost four games to teams with a losing record -- Oakland, Tennessee, Cleveland and San Diego.

    GRADE: F

    BINGO! Unfocused, Undisciplined, and Unprepared. 50 shades of the Triple U.
