Wow, Im gone for 5 months and we lose one game and Oh my god the seasons over, were back to the 2006 season, fire Tomlin, fire Arians, lets put dixon in as the Wildcat and press all the panic buttons. As far as I see, Ben didnt have an appendectomy and a near fatal crash, and as far as I know, Tomln is still the coach and hes not under his last year of contract.
Should we have won that game on Sunday? Absolutely without a shadow of a doubt. We had the game and we just didnt finish the job, and those are the consequences when you dont close the game. Its over guys, I like that we lost early so the guys get grounded and realize that this years schedule is just as tough. Adjustments will be made its only Week 2 and 15 to go.

Ok moving on, Bungles. I dont know about you guys but this is another trap game just like the Bears. And the one name that keeps coming up to my mind is Antoine Odom who sacked Aaron Rodgers FIVE times against a pretty good Packers Offensive line. Carson Palmers back and getting back in Groove and Cedric Benson seems to be running very tough. Overall I think we can win this game if we keep Palmer out the field and if we contain Chris Henry, Chad GarbageCinco is not an issue but Henry always seems to have our number. We can definitely run on this defense, so I hope Mendenhall and Parker have a good day. Well guys any other discussion comments go ahead and add on. Keep the faith people :tt02::tt02:

I'm not that impressed with the bungals, maybe because they're the bungals. Although I would agree, that Chris Henry seems to have our number and somewhere during a game he comes up with a huge TD.

This game will come down to our offense and can they commit to scoring more than 14 points this week. They'll need to run a 30+ point game to give the defense the rest they need as well. We can't have tired defensive personnel out there giving Caution the time to heave the 15-20 yarders and then have our guys trying to catch the likes of Henry.

The Packers defense collapsed last week against the Bengals. That win didn't have me screaming "OMG, TEH BENGALS ARE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOD FOOTBALL TEAM!".

It just had me yelling "damnit" because I had the Packers in pick em.

We can beat the Bengals. If we can run the damn ball somewhat this week and keep our defense rested, we will win. I see the defense getting a few sacks against Palmer. He isn't mobile at all and throws absolutely horrible on the run. If we force him to his left, he's done.

We got this. We'll win on Sunday.

A couple of my Steelers buddies aren't so sure. I may also be really nervous if we were heading into Baltimore this weekend, but come on already, this is the Bengals.

I am NOT taking the Bengals or any other team lightly this season. We have a couple of issues on the team overall which we need to address and fix and no time better than now to do so.

I was over the loss a couple of minutes after the game. We're headed into Week #3 and there is still a lot of regular season yet to go. We have a very good football team with top-notch coaches - let's look ahead, not behind. :tt02:

As long as the team takes it one game at a time, we will be fine.

This team has a great history of letting things go that are in the past.

As long as they continue to do that, they will be ok.

The Bengals are not pushovers. They will give us all we can handle this Sunday.

I think a lot of the frustration came with the fact that we weren't expecting to lose to cutler and his no-name band of receivers..............


at least that was the mentality of the media, and fans.....I saw it coming though....didn't make me any less mad when it happened

We've been notorious for blowing games against teams we're clearly better then.....and its a big reason why we never get put it same league as the Colts and Pats

Enough is Enough with that crap, lets take care of business from here on out.....starting with the Bengals

Bengals are gonna be tough in their stadium. I think the D-line is solid and the LB group of young guys in Rivers and Maualuga with Dhani Jones in the middle will be tough.

I really just hope we dont give up any big plays with our depleated safety corps and we have a good shot. I'd still love to see us run for around 140yds.

We are ripe for the picking across the middle right now with Troy out. If we don't get to Palmer, it is going to be a long day. As much as I hate to say it, criminal Chris Henry does seem to have our number. We need to get a running game going somehow to try to keep Palmer and company off the field. Anyone who is scared of Cedric Benson makes me laugh. He is a joke.

Sure the Bungles are better this season, but I still don't fear them as a great team in the NFL. They should have lost that game to the pathetic Broncos and they had success last week because Benson and the run game were on key, which won't be the case against our defense.
Benson will get shut early forcing Palmer to become one dimensional and will begin to commit turnovers without it. I have confidence that our team overall won't except another loss and with take it out on the Bungles Sunday.

The Bungles defense has improved, but I feel we can finally get our run game moving in all cylinders and open up Ben to some play action. We need to score more than 13-13 points in this game to win though. Our offense has to fire and do it often to keep the bungles behind all game and give the defense some breathing room. :tt03:

Benson isn't a joke. He ran very well against us in the game where he broke BMAC's arm. Part of the reason their offense hasn't been potent since 2005 is becasue of Rudi Johnson's injuries and decline. Now that they have a good RB again, they could cause us some problems.

Also, look out for a rookie named Scott that plays RB. He's a cutback runner that could cause us some problems.

I wouldn't worry about Bernard Scott too much, he hasn't had much of an opportunity to get on the field with Benson as the bell cow and Brian Leonard as the 3rd down back. He might see 2 or 3 carries against the Steelers.

Benson has looked great ever since the last few games of last season, showing good balance and explosiveness. I don't expect him to rush for 100+ yards against a great Steelers defense, but he should be able to do enough to keep them honest.

I’m not an overconfident fan. You saw what happened when everyone thought we walk all over the Bears. The offense has not made any improvements from last year. There are no positives to look at from this team so far. No run game, shaky oline, 2 sacks in 2 games. Bad pass Defense. Do you honestly think this team at this point is an elite team? No they aren’t. Their play this Sunday is exactly why writers and non Steelers fans write them off. Do you see any fire in their play? I only saw it in Troy.

Ya because it's only been TWO GAMES! And were 1 and 1. Did I ever say there was improvement of last season? No. And guess what last season in case you forgot WE WON THE SUPER BOWL! So thats good enough for me. We didn't have a run game last year, Parker was injured? O Line was the same as last season? Your just another stupid Steeler fan who has nothing better to do other than make excuses after ONE LOSS!

Itís amazing that people revert to name calling for no reason. Iím not making any excuses. An excuse would be we lost because of the field. We lost because we have major issues that arenít resolved. Oline being one and pass coverage and pass rush. We arenít not a good team simply put. Which is why we didnít beat the Bears. Our offense is putrid.

They were good enough last year because they had fire, heart and passion. Troy is the only one who has that this year. Everyone else is going through the motions. 06 was the same way. You know everyone is gonna give you their best shot and you come out flat? Which is how theyíve been the first 2 weeks. I expected more from this team since they claimed to have learned from 06 when they havenít.

Look at the Giants, after they won the Super Bowl they still played with fire and passion. Plax was their down fall along with some key injuries. They played like defending Champs.

No, all you do is whine. Like all last season, you pissed and moaned endlessly about the OL - "I wish we had the Giants/Titans/Ravens/Colts, etc. O-line." There's a difference between not being a homer and being a fault-finding crybaby.

If the Steelers win and still have major holes, yes I will point them out. If we win 35-31 I will point out we gave up too many points. Unless of course it was to a great offensive team. But if we get in a shoot out letís say with Detroit, then I will point that out. Because that should not happen. If Ben gets sacked 10 times in game Iíll point that out as well. Ben is the Franchise and best player on the offense despite his flaws. Protecting him and giving him a real running game will extend his career. I donít want to go thru the OíDonnell, Maddox, Kent Graham, Tomzack, Kordell, and Brister era all over again. I will continue to point out flaws in this team. Iím a fan Iím allowed to do that.

Troy being the exception. I just hope Ben can withstand another beating with no running game or pass protection.

The offense is bad because the playcalling is bad.

how come when Ben is in no-huddle the offense is productive? Because he chooses the right play.(and I agree that it helps to have the same defense on the defense which means they'll get tired but still)

And I dont want to hear the ''OL is bad'' BS.tired of it in fact,there are teams with worst OL than what we have and they are doing a better job running the football.

Against the Bears Ben had almost 5 seconds per play to make a pass which is enough for a good QB to make his decisions.

Of course they gonna have bad days,even the Titans and Giants OL have their share of bad days during a year.

When you have playmakers such as Holmes,Big Ben,Heath Miller,Ward in your offense the problem is playcalling,cause we all know they can execute.They just have to choose the right play at the right time.

And now you gonna have people sayin...we won the super bowl,playcalling wasnt that bad or all that stuff.

My answer would be how many games did we win last year because of no-huddle offense where Ben chose the plays to call ?

I dont care who's calling the shot I dont want Arians to be fired because his playbook is good,I just want better playcalling.

With the offensive talent the Steelers have and they way they've been moving the ball; They've scored only 27 points in two games. That's pretty sad. The friggin Ratbirds have scored more points in one game.

We draft Rashard Mendenhall, but we continue to insist on slamming Willie Parker down other teams throats, develop an allergy to the No-Huddle(despite the fact that it always works), and hoping a Troy-less Defense will rescue us again. All for what? Because it's "Steelers Football"? Last year we may have had an excuse for grinding out tough wins. We played a gauntlet of great teams and plenty of high-tier defenses. This year, we played the damn Bears and lose because we are unable to finish.

Criticize Gridiron if you want, but the whole team has been half-assing it in these two games so far. You can't help but draw comparisons to the 2006 team. Things probably won't change until the Steelers demolish the Bengals on Sunday, as much as it sucks. If we blow this game too, then there really is a problem with this team.

I thought the Steelers offense dominated the first half and except for a couple dropped balls and a hit on Ben's arm that caused the pick they would have had 3 scores, easy.

Steelers still had the game won all the way till the last 5 minutes of the game, and after all, it's not fantasy points that count, but WINNING THE DAMN GAME. Do you people even watch the games?


Steelers need to execute better, the points are there.

Having moved from South Texas to Northwest Indiana, the handle doesn't really fit anymore but that''s for another day. One of the few posts that I made was the prediction of Chicago beating the Steelers this season. However, that's not gloating, just the biggest reason that I am no longer a Bears fan. The Bear's ownership is polar opposite of the Steelers ownership who are proven winners. With that being said, some observations from attending Sunday's game at Soldier Field.

After Ben was hit by Alex Brown in the first half that led to a pick, most of the balls he threw were not pretty, one wonders if he didn't "tweak" something and toughed it out.

The radio guy's here from Chicago noticed the same thing that I did. Our WR's kept running the same uninspired routes over and over again and were easy to defend after the 1st quarter.

I also noticed that Reed was clearly rattled after missing the second FG and hope that this doesn't start a downward spiral for clutch kicks in the future.

TROY WAS MISSED!!! Chicago receivers ran wild in the middle of the field with NO FEAR and it showed. Knox was always wide open!!

We should win against the Douche Bungles but ONLY if we get pressure on the QB.

Fire Away, I can take it!!! I took if from hundreds of butthole Bears fans!!!

If it's '06 again, I can live with that. Hell, if it's a time warp back to the '80s I can live with that too.

But I don't think it's '06 again.

This is exactly where I'm at. :thumbsup: I don't EXPECT anything from this team other than going out there every game day, giving it 150% and let the chips fall where they may. We're NOT going to win the division or the SB every single season folks!!! :banging::banging::banging:

That being said, however, I don't believe the guys gave it their all in Chi-Town, especially in the 4Q. To be successful in this league, as most of us know, you gotta play 60 minutes of football!!

I cry uncle. It's 2006 all over again, and the team is going to finish 8-8.

Don't know why we don't just finish the season right now. I mean, the outcome is already determined, so why bother? Saves a lot of people time and angst, and saves the players a few bumps and bruises. Just give the Pats* the trophy, and let's move on to the CBA war of 2010.

:chuckle::chuckle::chuckle:

Sarcasm duly noted and appreciated :applaudit:

With the offensive talent the Steelers have and they way they've been moving the ball; They've scored only 27 points in two games. That's pretty sad. The friggin Ratbirds have scored more points in one game.

We draft Rashard Mendenhall, but we continue to insist on slamming Willie Parker down other teams throats, develop an allergy to the No-Huddle(despite the fact that it always works), and hoping a Troy-less Defense will rescue us again. All for what? Because it's "Steelers Football"? Last year we may have had an excuse for grinding out tough wins. We played a gauntlet of great teams and plenty of high-tier defenses. This year, we played the damn Bears and lose because we are unable to finish.

Criticize Gridiron if you want, but the whole team has been half-assing it in these two games so far. You can't help but draw comparisons to the 2006 team. Things probably won't change until the Steelers demolish the Bengals on Sunday, as much as it sucks. If we blow this game too, then there really is a problem with this team.
Thank you! Glad to see someone who understands where Iím coming from.

Well, let's look at the flipside of that. Our DEFENSE has only given up 27 points in two games, an average of 13.5 a game.

I absolutely guarantee you that if we continue to only give up 13.5 a game, we'll win 12 games and win the SB.

How you like dem apples, pally?

To answer the question posed by the OP:

OK Are We Done Crying?

No, it looks like the crying, whining, pissing and moaning is still very much in full swing. :coffee:
