Wow, Dawson kicked a 49 yard FG in the snow. That is impressive even from a Brownie. Dawson is on my fantasy team, so I have to keep up with him.

the kick never made it above the cross bar. it barely made it over. amazing kick..

it kinda seems like to be that we haven't had good momentum since we lost to the jets.

We were clearly exposed as a fraud. This team isn't that good. We are a .500 team dressed as a 9-4 team. One and done in the playoffs....if we make it.

Get out of the damn first half 10-7

This offense is not going anywhere in the last minute of the half

Total collapse of the offense this half - this season is beginning to remind me of 1996 when the team peaked in October

Maybe Ben can drive the offense down for a FG!

It would be nice to see the no huddle during the second half

Nice job Ben...call a T.O. with 15 seconds left. Go to halftime with one left. The IQ of this team must rival Vince Young's.

Maybe it's all part of the plan. Lose a few at the end, squeek into the playoffs and then get the sports media to say that the Steelers don't have a chance.

We only seem to play well when we're the underdogs.

IMO that is one reason the offense has lost its mojo - that is all on the Rooneys for nor dealing with a problem that has been festering for years an finally blew up with a series of wet game days

Let's see Jacksonville has the 27th ranked passing defense in the league..guess what...we can't pass

Jet's and Broncos have the worst running defense in the league...guess what....can't run.

This team is clearly clueless and cannot take advantage of any perceived weakness.

12-16-2007, 02:46 PM
Well, it's not really the best passing weather. Lots of wind. And heck, we've never been able to run on the Jags.

Every team knows we're going to run, so they sell out to stop the run. We've got one great receiver, one good TE and a few other average receivers. Nothing that's too scary for most defenses.

We may have a better record than last year but at this point last year we were starting to play are best ball of the season (save for the Raven game).

It's not fairweatherness, it's all the talk we heard early on about no-huddle offenses and Ben calling his own plays and oh, we're gonna open it up this season and it looked good early. The last few games we can't get out of own way. Our line isn't protecting well at all, our receivers are dropping easy catches and our defense is getting blown off the line and being out played.

Not fair weather at all...we just realize that your avatar of SB XL is the last SB this team will see for a very....very...very long time. I haven't doubted Tomlin...until now. All his tough talk does not translate to his team.


I'm not going that far. We could win the Super Bowl next year for all I know. Teams can get much better quickly in the moderen NFL and we are still top 15 team talent wise. Also, i'm not going to jump drop out of the Tomlin parade yet. It is his first season We had some a few seasons where we finished poorly under Cowher as well..

However, we ain't going nowhere this year. This team just is not good enough to play with the best teams in the league at this point in the season. If we lose the division to cleveland after beating them twice it is going to be hard to swallow.

Most were only expecting a .500 season. I'm fairly impressed with Tomlin so far. He has taken a team that BARELY made .500 last season and has brought them back together, even with all of the Faneca controversy.

Are you joking BlastFurnace? 9 - 4 in a coaches first year isn't impressive. You obviously know very little about football or must be speaking out of frustration. I won't play the race card but that wouldn't shock me either.

1. Another gem of a game called for Arians... Willie is unstoppable and all he wants to do is pass the ball or give it to Davenport... This guy sucks, no wonder he worked for the Browns. Can't really complain with the offenses numbers this year but they are certanley not maximizing talent.

2. I have realized that David Garrard throws a piss poor ball. I think he will be the downfall of this team in the post-season... Don't let the numbers fool you, he has been nearly picked off more times this season than I can count from the games I have seen of the Jags.

What pisses me off about this offense is that during training camp we all heard about how it's going to be opened up but I haven't seen anything like that in any game. There has been no consistency in their play and I haven't seen anything productive from them since the ratbird game.

I don't know what the deal with Tomlin is... I like him a lot as a coach, but he seems to talk a big game, and the team doesn't respond... I don't know how much of it is caused by the rest of the coaching staff, but I think there will be some pretty big changes with this team over the offseason, even if we make the playoffs. I hope this second half collapse is not indicative of how the Steelers will do in the future.

Tomlin should of course get more time to make the team his own, as well as getting mroe experience, but he needs to improve in several aspects...
