Hoo boy is this week going to suck. And it's only going to get uglier from here folks as the season goes on.

20-9 Fourth Quarter lead. BLOWN.
Turtling when the game still wasn't over.
Can't finish drives.
Interceptions.
Pick-sixes.
Dropped balls.
Piss poor decision making.
And a Defense that just got gutted inside out by the Bengals.

Ladies and Gentlemen, your 2009 Pittsburgh Steelers. Better stick to 2008 highlights and wait for next year. Because this team is just not feeling it this year. It's a victory lap season for them. They're full and happy.

The most I can hope from this team is that they suck worse than the 2006 bunch to get a higher draft pick.

People can poo-poo all they want that the sky is falling but the fact of the matter is this D sucks without Troy. Two game winning drives just picking apart the D with absolutely no pressure on the QB in back to back weeks. I don't care how bad the QB on the opposing team is, in the NFL if you give him time he will beat you.

The Sweed drop and the crappy play calling the last time we had the ball was pathetic plus our defense sucks with Carter in there. Two 4th qtr leads given up in back to back weeks. We turtled up with the back to back runs after we picked up 1 1st down........

The D is shades of its former self and I don't think it is just because Troy is out...They are a step slower this year and my realistic expectations for this team have declined significantly in light of these pathetic performances over the past two weeks.

Championship teams find ways to win close games...not piss them away in the 4th quarter.

If not for a coin toss we could easily be 0-3 right now.



But other than that, Good effort this week, fellas!....Really...way to be!

People can make the exuse and say our defense sucks without Troy in there, but really they have been getting absolutely NO PRESSURE on the QB's. I don't think Troy alone could fix that problem. Teams have been able to run on us so far. Those are the biggest things I've seen other then trying to blame Tyrone Carter for not being Troy P. Everyone is practically the same except for Troy and Foote out and Carter and Timmons in.

I'm wondering if them trying to Scheme to help Timmons show his skill-set is actually hurting our defense right now.

Why did we stop throwing the ball ? Why did we fall into that run-run-pass pattern the last few drives in this game.

We were churning out the yards all game long until the 4th quarter when we decided to change up....

Ima say it. I want Arians ass gone.NOW!!! And i dont wanna hear anybody try and defend him. This was as pathetic of an alteration of a game plan that ive seen from a team with the caliber of athletes we have.

If not for a missed field goal last week we could be 2- 1. If not for a INT returned for a TD, or a dropped TD by Sweed, this week we could be 2-1 or 3-0. I'm not blind to our issues, but to I'll wait to leap off the cliff.

Everyone is harp on the defense and they have their share of blame, but the reality of it is they shut this Bengal team down for an entire and half. A Half that shouldve seen our offense get some separation. How many times are we gonna settle for FG's in the red zone. We shouldve put up not less than 35 pts this game. We left way too many points on the field.

The D will struggle at times without Troy, but the offense is gonna have to take up some slack too in his absence and produce more TD's and less FG's. Shouldnt have even come down to the defense having to make a game saving stop.

Don't hurt yourself jumping off that bandwagon. And NO, you will NOT be allowed back on when the team turns things around.

I hear the Bengals can use another fan. Go root for them. Just make sure you turn in your Terrible Towel on your way out.

Beat me to it. This team hasn't been able to play 60 minutes of complete football the past couple of games. I refuse to believe Troy P being out is what has turned our defense of last year into what it has been this year. We should have had some fall off, but not this kind of fall off that we saw in the 2nd half.

The defense has given up a ridiculous amount of 4th quarter points, when it matters most.

I'm confident we'd be 3-0 right now if Troy didn't get hurt. It's alarming how much one guy means to this defense, we really are mediocre without him.

Fordy
09-27-2009, 06:30 PM
It does feel eerily similiar to 2006 so far. However there is still time to turn things around! All it takes is a big win vs. San diego next week and we will be back on the right track with Polamalu returning soon after.

This loss is definately on Airhead.

Like I've said all week. This Defense, especially without Troy, is severely weakened over last year's group. They NEED help. Arians continues to think with this retarded mindset that it's going to save his ass so he can play his stupid gimmicky offensive schemes and lay his foot off the pedal except when we're really in trouble.

Once again, we don't bother to implement the No-Huddle at all. We play not to lose and force the Defense to bail us out. The 2008 defense is not here anymore. Get your ass in gear and get some points on the board.

We won XLIII in SPITE of Arians, not because of him. Easily among the worst OC's in the game today.

Why keep relying on the defense ??? DO YOUR FREAKING JOB!!! Dont worry about anyone else.

We had a lot of success throwing the ball today and Cincy didnt make any adjustments to stop it. We stopped ourselves (goin conservative). Run-run-pass on consecutive series. What in the hell is that about ? Close to the vest ? Im gonna throw u a line from Herm Edwards--YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME !!! You cant have success playing scared or conservative in this league. I betcha we see that friggin bubble screen again next week too.

And that "BA called a good game is BS"--(you scheme for what works 60 MINUTES). The last couple series supported that. All this guy is is a serviceable coordinator. Nothing more.

But stop expecting the defense to bail you out. AND CLOSE THE DEAL with the playcalling and execution on the other end TIL THE END.

09-27-2009, 06:39 PM
We should be a pass first offense. There is no reason to run the ball when we can barely run the ball. We had some success today but our passing game is way ahead of the running game. We don't use it enough.

So the D gets no blame whatsoever from you, am I correct? It's all BA and the offense's fault, correct?

I don't give a damn what happened before the 4th quarter. When you are up by 11 points with 10 minutes left, your defense needs to step up and get the job done. Period.

XT, we all know the Defense has choked this game away today. They deserve the blame. But you can't deny the conservative gameplan shift in the last minutes of the game didn't play a role. The Steelers O had the Bengals on the ropes the majority of the game and took the ball out of our best player (Ben), to fall on a run game that doesn't have the luxury of Jerome Bettis. We're not a running team anymore. WE have to step out of this damn Cowher-era conservatism. Yes, the D didn't play 60 minutes. But that's no excuse for the O to not do the same. Put the gas on the pedal and don't stop.

We should've seen by the Titans game that this Defense is not what it used to be without Troy.

2 - our kicker is on a 2 week hangover.
3 - our D shows how bad we miss polamalu, not only his play but his silent assassin leadership on the field.

Sorry, but I don't mind the playcalling. I just don't. If they start slinging the ball all over the place and Ben throws another pick-6, these same people would give BA crap over being too aggressive. The man cannot win with you people no matter what he does.

The defense blew the lead, plain and simple. Pinning it all on the offense is giving them an unjustified free pass.

This team was moving up and down the field almost at will......we were rockin and rollin til we pulled the needle off the record.

This defense is gonna struggle some days even with Troy. This offense is potent. As potent as ive seen since ive been watching Steeler ball (for 33 years) and theres no damn reason we shouldnt have whipped Chi-towns ass last week and sealed the deal by 3rd qtrs end today. And if you were coordinator and decided to pull back from what was successful, id be callin for your head too. This makes no sense.

Yeah, and im just as sick of all the Arians apologists. Play (calling) aggressive, attacking football for 60 minutes and ill be content and shut my mouth. Play scared or close to the vest and ill take issue with it.

And as I said in response to Edman, if they do play it aggressive and Ben throws another pick-6, you and the rest of the Arians haters would get all over him for that. No matter what the man does, it's always wrong in your eyes.

Yes, the offense should have had more points than they did. I said that all damn game long. But I am not going to overlook the FACT that despite all that, they were still in great position to win the game and the defense let them down. Because the bottom line to me is winning - I don't give a damn about the stats.

2 weeks in a row with points left on the field....Also you cant leave it up to the defense week after week to hold em back....This should have been a much higher scoring game. Im still not convinced on Limas Sweed....2 dropped pass's for 6....What more could they expect with all the time Ben had today....No excuse this time.

I suggest you speak with someone to help you get life's priorities in order.

Never said I wouldn't, I said I didn't want to. Pretty sure most on here are pissed tonight.

I suggest you learn to comprehend a statement and learn how to read.

You're fighting a losing battle, stlrtruck. I've officially given up fighting, and I'm turning the board over to them.

Have fun, boys and girls.

I've never liked BA ... ever. The games that 6burgh has won in 4th qtr drives Ben has made the play calls. I heard the DVE announcer saying that Harrison and Woodley have not been playing like they were last year...LET'S GET THIS STRAIGHT... when an O linemen knows he can get away with holding Harrison and Woodley any way they want...they will do it. They have zero sacks...why...look at the films...Goodell and Piraira need to tell they officials to start calling holding fairly. I think the Steelers need to sit down and take their heads nout of their asses and become the "Band of Brothers" that they claimed last year. The season is not over...it has just begun...I WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON MY STEELERS...true STEELER fans never do.

I know 1-2 is not as good as 2-1 or 3-0, but isn't it a little early to be throwing in the Terrible Towel? Cincy is a substantially better team this year than last.

They ain't Cleveland.


No, they're not Cleveland. But do you want to know what else they were?

Down 20-9 with Ten Minutes to go in the game.

Sorry, Crow. Not buying that "Cincy is better" Garbage. The Steelers shit the bed today even harder than against Chicago. They did everything they could to lose it, and they did. This loss is awful, and this team has a pathetic shade of 2006 all over them.

But as it's only Week 3, isn't it really a little early to make judgment calls on the rest of the season?

It's way to early, and everyone knows it.

Don't worry. It's not a deja-v. It's not 2006 all over again.
This team needs some reality-checks, that's all. Criticism and irony thrown at it. A wake-up call, if you will.
And you know what? Maybe it's not even the team that needs that. Maybe's Tomlin that needs it, after two years of thumb-ups. :coffee:

It's not 2006 all over again. 2006 happened because Cowher mentally checked out...or so we were led to believe.

You're right, it is still early and maybe they get Troy back and everything's roses again.

However, 3 weeks in...it's eerily similar to the crappy start of 2006.

Yea...I will deny it.

the good news is that we will turn this around...the bad news is that it WON'T be next week so get ready for more people to run around screaming about the sky falling.

As of now I think that we will most probably go 10-6 but may be able to pull out an 11-5 season. We will most probably go into the bye week at 3-4 though I think that we "may" be able to beat the Vikings if we stop their run game. I also think that we might take one of the Ravens games but I am playing devils advocate here to give worst case scenerio.

This is pretty much want I was thinking. I think we win next week and beat the Ravens once. Then throw in an unexpected lose, just so folks around here can self destruct, and that gives us a 11- 5 record. I will take that.

I'll deny it too.....unless you tell me the franchise wrecked his bike again.

Anyone else notice Tomlin laughing it up when it was 13-0 in the 2nd quarter???? I'm guessing we won't see that again any time soon.

im calling a 10 loss season. ofensive line starts off good but then second half bites it. The play calling in the redzone sucks. Until we get a whole new line that can play 4 quarters... I dont know I am just done watching them this season.

You are just as bad as bungal fans. It's a long season. Yeah we are facing some adversity now but I think we will come through in the end.

PS. Please turn in your terrible towel at the door.
