    Love the win but why is Vince in there on 3rd downs?

    Cmon, defense played ok but when it counted the Bengals marched down the field twice and scored.
    Please for the love of God why is Vince in there every freaking down?
    He is an absolute liability on passing downs.
    If i have to watch one more DB blitz while Vince covers a WR i will go crazy....
    He is missing tackles and some of his run fits leave me scratching my head????

    LIke i stated, love the win but we need to get better.
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    I hate the Steeler CB/Safety blitz packages regardless of VW's responsibilities. I have yet to see one of those blitzes fool the Oline or RBs of the opponent and be successful. For now it seems that rushing 4 and dropping 7 is working best, or so it seems to me anyhow.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    We need to get Bince off the field in passing situations.

    Maybe it will happen when Fort is healthy.

    Matthew Thomas runs a 4.3, 4.4 but can't buy a vowel. What's holding him back? Looked good in pre-season to me.

    In fairness, there were some plays where Vince did well on 3rd down. He's fine if asked to cover a slower RB/TE, but don't match him up against some of the best WRs in the game on 3rd down. No LB is going to do well in that situation. Ryan Shazier couldn't cover these guys either. I have more issue with the way Butler uses VW vs VW himself.

    I have to admit I was hoping the defense would allow the Bengals to score quickly at the end to give Ben time to work his magic.

    The defense is getting better but they’re not there yet.
