    Really

    Coach Mike Tomlin said today that the Steelers' season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans was "not all bad" and that his team was "an explosive play or two" from being in the game.

    We're u not watching? A couple of big plays (offense or defense) then maybe we win with a late td or tie with a field goal to force OT. We will see a different team Monday ... Ido not believe this team will roll over and not put up a big fight in cinci...

    He's right.. but it wasn't because of the O. We were always a play away from winning until late in the game. Unfortunately the chances of a big play were slim to none.

    i'm with mr t on this. in fact probably one play would have been enough. that's ultimately steelers football. play good with good teams. bad with bad teams. and pull a rabbit out in the end. that's really been what's missing. we haven't closed out well for a little over a season. we need some closers.

    When you lose by one score, you are one play away by definition...

    If we had actually played a good team like the 49'ers or Broncos, how many splash plays away would we have been? That's the question. It's not that we were a big play away from winning, it's that we were a big play away from winning against a mediocre team.

    How many games have the Browns been a big play or two away from being competitive in? This is a game of inches. A big play or two for every losing team last Sunday would have reversed a lot of outcomes.

    By the way I would be able to beat Ike Taylor in a 40 yard dash if only I could knock a couple of seconds off my 40 time.

    He's delusional and should potentially be fired for that statement alone.
