    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...

    This is the mentality of a pure, homegrown, yinzer, homer, Steeler fan. We were gifted 2, got 7 when they went to prevent, but flat out sucked.

    By that 'one or two explosive plays away' mentality, we could of been undefeated last season and every NFL team that lost this weekend shouldn't feel bad cause they were an explosive play or two from winning.

    Obviously you think I am trying to side step the fact that we FLAT OUT LOOKED LIKE CRAP on offense Sunday.... I never said we shouldn't feel bad about our performance but as most games go, one or two "miracle" plays and we win this game... Wait till Monday . The Steelers are poised for this attention. We are the hunters now and no longer the hunter if you will... Believe in the TOWEL!!!

    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.
