    3rd worst in AFC

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/te...ake/league/afc

    For all of us scratching our heads as to why this team doesn't win more game, the -14 take away stat is the single most-revealing # out there. That is 3rd-worst in the AFC. Wow. Pathetic. They are lucky to even be in the play off race at this point.

    I view that as something that's fixable. There's some random luck in terms of takeaways. And some teams can go through stretches where they are on either side of that equation. I think we're a sound team that stays in games but hasn't made the necessary plays when needed. We have enough talent to beat anyone.

    Can we be healthy. Get it together. And have some luck go in our favor?

    I'll partially agree that there is some luck but we use to be able to make turnovers happen. We can't now, but just do the same old thing.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    On D, there's fundamental pass rushing flaws. On O it's been some back luck that should be easy to fix.
