Man, I'm so SICK of these wasted red zone opportunities.  Mad Mad Mad

The defense gives us two GIFT Int's deep in Titan territory and we only get 2 FGs out of it. 

F-ck you, Todd Haley. Piece of garbage.  Censored Censored Censored

Yikes. I’ve come to the opinion that this is a very highly overrated team.

A lot of dropped balls tonight. BTW, our wideouts are getting mugged, and the refs are letting it slide. We need to put one of these guys in motion, and run some rub routes to free them up. On Defense, Burns is getting torched. Looks like he’s dropping to protect Golden, or whoever the safety is on his side.

1st drive - no huddle - we march down the field

That was obviously TOO effective, because we haven't gone back to it

....and the fumble recovery was the one good thing Bryant's done this game.

Boswell for MVP.  He crushed that last FG.

The defense is playing great, IMO. Not perfect, but making BIG plays... splash plays. The defense is the strength of this team.

We've won 7 games so far... and in every one of those wins, we've allowed fewer than 20 points. That's excellent defense, especially when you consider how little help they're getting from the offense. 

We definitely aren't championship material at this point. But the defense is playing really good football and if... IF... the offense can somehow get it together going into the postseason... this team could be unstoppable. 

Martavis Bryant is horrid. He sucks. But I'm glad he at least knows how to fall on the ball.

See how easy it is when you don't sub every 5 minutes and stop trying to be cute?

Rumors floating around Heinz tonight that Haley is on thin ice.

From the looks on Tomlins face watching the p*ss poor execution on this offense, it was like he was saying, “I ain’t believing this mess”...

Actually, the O was getting trashed after their first TD until halftime, with few subs. Look, that was a good Titan team we just beat, and there is a good possibility we will see them again in the playoffs. 

I will ask this, in the second half of this game, is this the offense you expected to see this year?

This says it all. It usually does when this happens.

Out of 76 #Steelers snaps last night:

Grimble: 9

Nix: 5

Hubbard: 6

You know, the offensive game plan we ran against the Titans, looked an awlful lot like what they used to pull out the Colts game.

I’ve said the before, the Steelers are what they do or don’t practice. The CBA limits teams to 13 padded practices during the regular season. Looked to me like last weeks preparation was more about the Titans than the Colts. Wolfley, on his radio cast said there were no padded practice between the the Colts and Titan games.

This also means Ben has been getting more reps at practice throwing the ball, which would also explain his increased accuracy. It also explains a lot why the Steelers tend to “play down” to inferior teams.

There is a good article in the Trib by Tim Benz today.
