    Feeling worse now than yesterday

    Just got home from the long sad drive back to NY.
    Not only did i get to watch the 3 FG attempts live but now i have to read about the Chargers LS moving the ball.
    Im sick all over again.
    I don't want to believe it, but i just don't think we're a very good team this year.
    I'm hoping but would be very surprised if we held on to the division this year.
    I guess im over the disbelief, then angry phase and now in the i want to cry phase
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    The holes in defensive talent that were identified before the season seem to have re-appeared (or more correctly, not really filled). The coaches have little to no options to reshuffled the chairs on the Titanic to keep it from sinking.

    I still think they will manage to scrape together enough wins to take the division but it will come down to the last week to do it.

    Keenan Allen was targeted 9 times when a Steelers linebacker was the nearest defender. No wide receiver has been targeted more against a linebacker in a game since #NextGenStats began tracking nearest defender metrics in 2016.#LACvsPIT

    Read that and actually got to see it live.
    It was a disgrace.
    Imagine what Bellicheat is going to do to this defense

    If the Ravens find a way to beat the Chiefs, it will indeed get REAL interesting.

    Did we have other options that were realistically better? What was Haden being assigned to do?

    As long as Ben keeps throwing RZ pics, how much does it matter?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Why not bring Mike Hilton in to cover him. He's giving up a bunch of height but he's a ton faster than a LB and maybe he can get a hand on it. Got to be better than letting Allen be open by 5 to 7 yards every time.

    Ben threw 1 pick in the game and San Diego punted after it. The D was the issue and the coaches refusal to cover a Pro Bowl receiver.

    The D was a big, fat, glaring issue in the 2nd half. But we could have easily survived that D if it weren't for horrible officiating, a horrible special teams gaffe, a stagnated offense in the 2nd half, and Haden getting blasted by his own player on a sure interception in the EZ.

    the pats are not worried about the running game. they will double AB and press JuJu to limit both. They aren't worried about our TE's or #3 receiver. On offense they are going to be running crossing routes like crazy and putting Gronk on undersized DB's.

    we know that's what they're going to do - but will not scheme to combat it. The players will all give a great effort of course and Tomlin will likely 'own it' and 'tip is cap' to the pats in the post game presser.
