    Turnovers in game one that didn't happen

    I saw the Steelers give up at the end of what the players thought was the end of the play or
    else Troy gets that interception on the tip ball. Look again at that tip ball.
    That ball was still live and they gave up 1 second to early or Else Troy most likely gets that interception.

    The Steelers do not have the right motivation approaching these games..
    This is on the coaches....

    Steelers need to be more alert of whats going on on the field!!!

    they didn't give up.. they just didn't see the ball out. It happens all the time.

    Troy got a hand on a ball that 90% of NFL secondary would not even touch. He did everything he could. Sometimes you just don't know where the ball ricocheted to on the field.

    For me, the much more concerning issue is the lack game changing plays the defense (all of them) make in general. Strip the ball out of the QB's hand. Make an interception to kill a long drive. Strip a ball carrier and actually recover the fumble. I don't see this D (and it has been true for a couple of years) as one that has a "nose" for the ball.

    Who can remember the last strip sack? My guess is that James Harrison had it and he doesn't play for the Steelers any longer.

    We need guys to tackle the ball instead of the ball carrier. It does drive me nuts sometimes watching other teams play and see one defender stand a guy up and 5 other guys coming in to try and take the ball. We're always so focused on tackling I think we forget about the ball sometimes.

    The biggest thing for me that jumped out about Jarvis is he always seems to want the ball. Even in practice this summer, he was always trying to grab the ball from someone. I think he's gonna set a record for forced fumbles before his career is said and done.

    That is always one of my favorite defensive plays. I can't recall the last one, but I would bet that Jarvis Jones delivers the next one.

    I noticed this about Jones too. He REALLY attacks the ball
