it's all the fairweather fans up in here bro! they have NO LOVE for their team and their team captain! yeah, he sucked it up today. but the fact of the matter is, it was HIS determination and gully that got us in contention for the playoffs and won us a division. leave it up to the fairweathers and haters to rip up someone for a select few slip ups and instantly chastize him. i get sick of the haters man. i agree with you. shut up or get the f*ck out of here with your naysaying bullsh*t! right?

The Titans played solid but you CAN"T WIN when you turn the ball over 4 times on the road. Ben was very careless with the ball today which is totally inexcusable.

Some of you make me sick with the way you are defending Ben. Are we only supposed to praise him when he does good? I call it both ways and don't play favorites. He f-ked up today and this one is on him...

Defense is paid too, so is the O-line, so are the WRs and the Running backs, and the Coaches, and the Kicker.

Ben has won some, but it is very frustrating watching a game like this one when you are having to not only defend against a good team, but get through the many turnovers brought upon by Ben. I'm not that upset about interceptions, but the fumbles trying to do too much drives many folks nuts. It could be a result of such poor pass protection this season (although better the last few games) ... he might be trying to hard to make things happen

Whoah whoah whoah. Ben was being aggresive on the last drive, so I won't really fault him for that because they were pressed for time, just like Flacco last week.

Other than that he's 26/40(65%, decently good), with over 300 yards, 2 TDs, and one INT.

i think in the colts game he pretty much gave it away with those ints, but i wouldn't say that today. to be honest we're not one of those teams that puts up 30+ points week in week out, so when a team puts up 31 points on our defense, then they're probably going to win. our defense has been our saving grace this season, and this time the titans outplayed us there. i actually thought ben was passing pretty well all game (outside of the ints). he wasn't really doing too much panic passing which is when he really gets in trouble, and its just that we couldn't find a nice momentum in our offense after we went 14-10 up. and having pretty much 0 running game doesn't help either.

The Titans might have played better, but they are or were not the better team. They are having a dream season. We are just having another Steelers season. In a few years we will still be in the top 5 and they will be in the crapper with Detriot.

Eh, I'm thinking of it as a rally loss. Honestly, its the O-Line in the end guys, for the lack of offensive production. Same story as last year. Going into playoffs we'll do what we can, and I think it'll be wins. Just have to be smart about it, we aren't going to fix our O-Line in a week when its plagued us for over a year.

But that "sissy slide" wouldve at least netted us 3 pts. Remember, thats a 10 pts swing youre talking about. Tenn scored 21 pts off of miscues. You will not win with such a deficit in the turnover battle. Like it or not Tennesse was the better team on both sides of the ball. Give em credit.

I'm happy with second seed in afc and first round bye. Maybe two home games, 1 for sure. What's the problem?

NOBODY seems to be happy about this. yeah, it was a loss. you win some...you lose some. but guess what, it was JUST a game. it would've been nice to pull of a win...but it didn't happen. move on...get over it and focus on next week and the playoffs. -- like my mother always said, you can never be ENTIRELY happy. i'm bummed now, but hey...i still have faith. =)

They didn't win by 40, that's the problem.

But in all honesty, while Ben's turnovers certainly hurt, it was up to the D to stop the Titans, and for the first time this season, they didn't get the job done. Also, if they had any semblance of a running game, then Ben would not have to pass so much. Part of the reason he had such a great season last year was because they could run fairly well. They don't have it this season, and as a result, Ben has 20 total turnovers. Just like any other QB, he needs to be put in situations where he can be successful, and the fact that the Steelers have managed to get to this point is a testament to how good Ben really is.

good point. BUT that Cowboys game could've went either way. the D stepped up and pulled the rug out from under Romo. BUT, he is known to be the biggest choke artist in the league. he probably would've f*cked that game up on his own eventually. you know what i mean?

at this point in the season we don't need a "wake up call." we just need to crack down on our fundamentals and grind it out until our time comes to turn it up a notch. that time is our battle with whoever we face in the playoffs. i'm all about that right now because i would rather lose to a team in the regular season than the same team in the playoffs. na'mean?

Willie Parker:

18 carries for 29 yards
1.6 yards per carry

Who single handedly lost what?

the fact that he got hit 7 times for loss helped those numbers, when he was actually allowed to get to the LOS then he was pretty effective, could of been better but thats ONE of the reasons we lost.

another could of been that on at least 5 plays (prob a lot more) i noticed Max Starks blocking air and letting the End get in on the play. Or it could be the defense not being able to get the timely stop that was needed to give us a chance.

we are 11-4 far better than most of us and jus bout all the 'experts' predicted us to be. Ben played good for not having a run game and being hit a lot, u notice the shot he took on the hines ward TD, cant call his toughness into question on that play

Totally agree with you! What do you call four fumbles, four sacks and two picks? Don't get me wrong. I love Ben and think he is the best QB in the NFL, bar none. But when he has a bad game, we need to be honest and say so.The Titans played solid but you CAN"T WIN when you turn the ball over 4 times on the road. Ben was very careless with the ball today which is totally inexcusable.

Some of you make me sick with the way you are defending Ben. Are we only supposed to praise him when he does good? I call it both ways and don't play favorites. He f-ked up today and this one is on him...

he won the last 2,he won 5 this year when we were trailing in the 4th QTR

so who cares about the AFC Title

The Pats won the League Reg Season title last year....did they win the superbowl ?

Ben isnt the only responsable for the lost,as well as he isnt the only responsable for a win...this is a team sports so you win and lose as a team

so if you want to slap a player after a loss you better doing the opposite when we win

As much as Ben made the mistakes, I think it's only fair to give the Titans a hats off and great job by them.
Our defense has been lights out all season long and I'm kind of thankful this break down happened now instead of 3 weeks from now.
There is redemption that needs to be made. And I'm hoping we have a chance to do it against the titans.

HE threw those picks.....not Harrison, not Troy.........no one on the O line or D line. Ben.......he lost two fumbles.....one which wiped away a sure scoring opportunity deep in the red zone. Yeah, you can applaude his effort but to sacrifice your body and risk season ending injury or yet another concussion is a gamble, but sliding makes it 4th and goal and at least you get points. Ben deserves his share of criticism.........stop exaulting him like he's some idol. Hes not. He's human and he showed it today.

By no means did Ben play well today, but he did not single handedly lose the game either. The O line was aweful, the D played like they could care less about the game (at least in the fourth) and the play calling sucked. All in all it wasn't ben who lost, the Steelers lost. That being said, We are still the AFC North Champs with a first round bye, and whole hartedly believe that we are going to be fired up for the games that truly count (playoffs)

secondly, ben has horrible fumble statistics. i think when he tries too hard to make a play he becomes a bit phrenetic and careless. his 1st 2 fumbles were the difference of 10 points.

third, while our defense played alright by many other teams standards, it want lights out. im still suprised none of our opponents get called for holding.

I feel like your contradicting yourself Steel Warrior. You're saying our offense is pathetic and we're gonna lose in the playoffs yet you're hoping we learn from this. That says to me you understand we had a bad game, but that we still have potential to go far. I don't know if we're going all the way, but I feel we can beat any team in the NFL. I agree though, the offense, and Ben, will likely be the key.

Ben Roethlisberger did not cost us the game today stupid penalties, wrong routes, stupid play calls cost us. Jeez if it wasn't for Big Ben we wouldn't have 11 wins this year. He won the Jacksonville, both ravens games, the chargers game, and the cowboys game all in the closing minutes. He has absolutley NO TIME AT ALL and when he does yah he holds on to it too long sometimes but I don't blame him for holding on to the ball because he has no time and when he gets time he tries too make a big play and alot of the times he does. So I just think it's crazy that we complain about a QB who has led us to a 5th superbowl and who has over 50 wins in his first 5 years. Everybody has a bad game every once in a while but I'd never EVER even consider taking him out of a game.

QB - D+

OL - D-

RB - D+

WR/TE - B

DL - D

LB - C

DB - C+

ST - C

HC/OC/Assistants - C-

those are my grades. give or take +/- :smile:

RB's get a D+? Who the hell did they cheat off to get that grade?

Parker:

18 carries for 29 yards
1.6 yards per carry

hey Steel Whatever

wasnt it you talkin about F in oneself?

get over it. you spewed some bullshit and i called you on it.

the cardinals D got abused. dallas D last night was abused on the final 2 raven drives.

the steelers defense got beat with no help from their turnover prone offense.

if youre gonna join and spew crap like todays titantrolls, expect to be treated just the same. :hatsoff:

Although Ben made mistakes, this game was all about intensity, the Titans had it and we didn't. Besides a couple of plays the entire team looked pretty flat. Watching that Giants game tonight reminded me of how the Titans ran all over our D today. This game wasn't a big game as far as we needed to win. Some losses are better than others, I think the D took the Titans a little light this week. MAybe this will eb a wake up call, confidence is one thing but profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltery is another. When I was watching the game today the score was 24-14 and the Titans ran a wide play and I heard a Steeler say that shit ain't gonna work here.

the O-line is partly to blame. it's not like they were opening holes or keeping titans out of the backfield.

arians calling the draw isn't parker's fault. only barry sanders would have got out of that mess.

Exactly. That draw was the worst effort at "establishing the run" that I have ever seen.

Did you see Stapleton just get jammed into the backfield in the first quarter?? He gets driven right into Parker and Wille has to slide off of him and the defender and squirt ahead for a 4-5 yard gain. Again........where is Barry Sanders when you need him?

To the point of the thread, Ben didnt secure the ball and manage the game well, but he's not soley to blame.

You know the whole Kurt Warner thing just came to mind. NYC, are you Moores wife? I mean, why else would you push so hard for him to get more playing time.

You know there is something else that has been bothering me since you came to SF. If you watch and understand the game like you say, then why is Moore such a bad blocking back? He misses so many chip blocks. Then when he is in during 1st and 2nd downs I've seen him completly miss blitzing LB'S. Maybe there is a reason he has always been a 3rd down back.

This is what your arguement has been reduced to after Parker has had 44 carries for 101 yards for an average of 2.2 yards per carry over the last 3 games. Three of the biggest games of the Steelers schedule. The only intelligent defense you can come up with for Parker is that he has had three 1,000 yard seasons inthe past. You know how many guys will finish with 1,000 yards this year? 12 definite with another highly possible 3, that's half the league.

The funny part is, I don't care who is "better" than who, I don't care if Moore replaces Parker, some guy off the street or your uncle. All I care is that someone else who is capable of gaining more than 1-2 yards per carry play running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Someday you'll learn to root for the team and not individual "star" players.

Ok junior. I was ponting out one problem that Moore has that may be a reason why he never started in MN and why he is not starting now. I am not like you and just start bashing our players and tell everyone why he should not be here. If Moore was the starting and we did'nt have anyone better then I would stick by him, not calling for a backup when I know he is not better.

The problem I see is the running plays that are being called. Running through the tackles is not Willies strength. Tomlin needs to start pulling the guards and getting Willie on the outside. We have great blocking WR'S and TE'S which bode well for outside running. We have what we have right now and it's time for the playoffs so we need to go with what we do best.

As for your remark on me rooting for a player and not the team is laughable. Keep whacking those keys you're starting to put up some good numbers.

Pointing out what I think is the problem on an internet forum is not a personal comment towards you or anyone else and you shouldn't treat it as such. If my friends were Steelers fans and I could talk to them about the team, I wouldn't be here.

I too would stick by whoever we have, the problem is that Willie IS NOT the only running back we have, he is just happens to be the worst one right now.

Willie has zero strengths right now and you know it. And to revolve a rush scheme around an "outside running back" is suicide. He wants and likes to run to the outside? Fine, by all means, but he has to be able to run through the tackles first otherwise every defense will know where he is going and he'll get taken down for -5 every time. If he can't run through the tackles, get someone who can and use Willie on outside rushes.

The fact remains, he is not an every down back at this point in time and yet the coaches continue to use him as such and he has made them pay dearly for their decision.

This loss clearly goes on our inability to RUN the FRIGGIN BALL. The running game was completely shut down by Tennessee as it has been most of the year.

That means Ben has to try and win the game for us through the air.

I'll take Ben over any other qb in the league. He's a tough as nails gamer.

IMO it was a complete team effort on offense. Ben made some incredibly stupid decisions like trying to dive through 3 defenders from the 3 yard line, the Oline got bitch slapped by a bunch of backups, and the RBs just plain stink this year.

Crappy job by all.

The pom pom spin is that there's no place to go but up for that side of the ball but it better happen quickly or it'll be one and done again this year.

Ben just tries to do too much sometimes, and I can't really fault him for that. I'd much rather have a QB that will try to dive into the endzone from the 3 then one who runs out of bounds.

With a guy like Ben you've just got to take the good with the bad.

.

If you are just gonna use stats to push your thoughts and ignore the game, then just go ahead and post "biased Moore lover" on your sig. Why didnt you post the "Moore had a 17 yard run that skewed his stats" like the normal Parker haters would if Willie had a long run?? Some other Parker hater already posted that if you take out his 13 yard run.....it makes his average worse.

There were creases to run in sometimes and a lot of times nothing on those draws and off guard plays. I like Moore, I like the way he runs, catches and blocks. He is a complete football player. I think Parker ran the ball well when he didnt have a D-lineman on him almost taking the handoff, or making him move sideways because the hole wasnt there.

If you know anything about defensive football, you know that you want to make the back move laterally, so the rest of the defense can converge and gang tackle. When both Moore and Parker were able to run north-south, they did well. When they had to go east-west first, they got little or less. I put that on scheme, line blocking and lack of a FB. Even if you cant get any push from your O line, you gotta be able to draw up plays to get angles and make a lane north-south. Its why I am a proponent of Zeirline and Arians taking some blame.

1.6 yards per carry

You are like a broken record with this post... Tell me how many times were the Titans in the backfield about the same time he was getting the ball. Tell me how many times he had an actual hole to run through?

The fact of the matter is that our O-line didn't get the job done at all with a very pathetic effort. We let a ROOKIE get 4 sacks on Ben. They weren't blitzing all that much at all and we still couldn't block their 4 man line to save our life. It was disgusting to watch....

Hey, Ben has played pretty heads up football the past 5 weeks. The first fumble, it looked like he had Miller open in the back of the end zone and from there it was not protecting the ball.

Its the risk-reward you get with Ben and you gotta accept it. He has been playing well down the stretch.

What will everybody say when he chokes in the playoffs? I'm tired of defending him. He potentially had SIX turnovers yesterday by himself!!! No way we can win the Super Bowl this way. You can't keep putting our D in a bad position and expect them to stop the other team every time. All 4 losses were on him and not all 11 wins were because of him. He still gives us the best chance to win a title but that's not saying much when you look at how he's so inconsistent.

Ben's turnovers was the reason we lost. DId other people have bad games? Yeah....but I didn't see anyone on our team that had a worse game than Ben. Does the 300 yds and 2TD's somehow make it all ok? I don't think so. He supposed to be one of the top 5 QB's in the league, at least that's what I read all over this board every day.

130 passes without an int. thats pretty good, if thats inconsistent, then I dont know what to say.

Hey...I didn't say that the defense played lights out. But how many points did Ben give up? 14 by my count plus what kind of field position did he put them in on other turnovers? Change your name to flamingo so keeping your head buried in the sand isn't questioned...... Once again Ben gets a pass:coffee:

so...this number 1 defense couldnt hold the titans offense on a 3rd and 20? and yet...they get a pass? please...

you did....but what should I expect. You have no class and most of all no honor. I still have it so anyone who would like to see what a fraud you are can pm me and I'll give em' my log on and password. They'll see what a poser you are. And BTW, it was nice seeing Schaub play a real game against the Titans. He's been nothing but a back up for most of his career, LOL!!!

3 of their TDs came off of turnovers...who was responsible for the turnovers?

or the number 1 defense could have held them to field goals? that could have had helped out the offense?

Ok, let's see if we can officially kill this thread:

1) Our defense in the course of the last 6 weeks has either won our games or put our offense in great position to win the games.

2) Our offense is not the greatest. Hell it's not even mediocre this year.

3) Players and coaches are to blame.

4) Yesterday was an off game for our defense and a below average game for offense (although they did score more than 10 points).

5) WE WON THE AFC NORTH

6) WE ARE THE #2 SEEED IN THE AFC

7) LET'S ENJOY THE LAST WEEK OF THE SEASON.

8) LET'S ENJOY THE BYE WEEK, GET PLAYERS HEALTHY

9) KICK ARSE

I'll be the first to say that Favre is wicked inconsistent. But when you compare the numbers this season, I don't see Favre any worse than Ben. In reality, he's better. And again, you're comparing him to a broken down 40yd old QB with a new team. I'm glad you set your standards so high for a franchise QB.

I'll try. Between #1 Defense and something like #20 Offense, there's definitely a gap ..... and a big problem. It's not only that the Defense played great, it's also that they scored points that the Offense couldn't put on the board, Ben included.
I'm getting increasingly frustrated with Ben, sorry to say it but it's a fact. I don't see the reactivity and mobility he had a few years ago and I don't see the nice spirals on the numbers he used to throw either.

willie parker don't run very well this year and big ben is always under pressure so it' s the offensive line the problem.when steelers had marvel smith healthy hartings faneca simmons the running game and passing game was very different. after this season i hope steelers take 2 offensive linemen in draft like duke robinson and alex mack it's possible.

Most of the time it isnt Bens fault, everyone has to do there job. the o-line didnt, parker didnt. thats why i dont put most of the blame on ben.
