    There is no silver lining.

    Ben took 10 hits today because we couldn't block Ten's DT. I can only imagine what's gonna happen when we play against Ngata and Atkins for 4 games. Ben might get hit 200 times this year.
    Zane Beadles had no problem with H. Ngata this past Thursday. Yes, Zane Beadles, ever heard of him?? I really hadn't. Pouncey is unfortunately overrated, and now Beachum is in the center position. I have no quarrel with KB, I question the coaching and FO on their decisions. include the scouting dept in my rant please lol!!!

    Ben also made some good throws that WRs could have made some plays on and changed the outcome of this game. So I can see that working itself out. Especially once we get Heath back. And Ben was responsible for both of the turnovers and I think he can fix that. One was just a bad throw and the other was a bad handoff. I do wonder if the bad handoff happened as a result of a different QB/C exchange that threw things a bit off.

    Hopefully Tez comes back. I think he's a key cog in our D that can be a big difference maker. We do need to clean some stuff up on the OLine, but that can take time with guys in new positions. Ben can't get hit 10 times a game. If we can fix that we can be ok.

    There's still enough talent in some key superstars to overcome these problems.
    That's a good point. If Manny comes up with ANY of his close misses it's a totally different game. I still kinda hope Isaac Redman gets lot in the Liberty Tubes.

    Sanders - targeted 12 times; 7 catches 57 yds.... those kinds of numbers, aren't you glad the Steelers chose a one year deal??

    please.

    sanders had a bad game.

    he should have caught the deep ball right off the bat, but let it go right through his hands.

    I can't come up with a single positive on the offensive side of the ball. Nothing. An F for every offensive player and every offense coach. There inability to overcome Redman's fumble was sickening. Not one once of pride.

    And the D kept them in it but so did J Locker. He is a terrible QB. Third and long is a damn joke. I expect to see many games where the Steelers lose by 21 or more. A good QB with even a little time will carve them up without mercy.
