people...

please keep in mind that your anger and disgust with the steelers is no more valid or meaningful than anyone elses, so please keep it all in one thread.

if youre ready to throw in your terrible towel on the season, do it in this thread.

if you are going to suggest the steelers should tank the rest of the season for a high draft pick, do it in this thread as you wish and hope for the likes of decastro and spence to be back on the squad. keep in mind our current PROFESSIONAL players dont give a SHIT about any kid in college entering next years draft.

if you just want to vent... keep it in this thread.

if you think ike taylor sucks and lebeau needs to go on arians "retirement plan" keep it in this thread.

the multitude of threads of the same gripe will be merged or locked.

thanks :thumbsup:

For one Steeler fan... I'm tired of seeing 4th quarter leads go way. For the season and the previous playoffs big Dick has gotten into the idea that Martyball works. LeBeau is long in the tooth and needs to be replaced. Big Ben please be a leader and call out the D for being pathetic!!!

I feel your pain... Tired of watching 4th quarter leads go away.

I just honestly want to say a game where our whole offensive line doesnt get hurt. Thats what pisses me off most of all. Big Ben can only do so much but he can't do it all. This team really needs a good ass chewing and they can't keep losing games to teams like this tonight, and 3 weeks ago, ESPECIALLY with the ratbirds getting lucky every week. I'm not giving up by any means but I dont know what to think about this embarassment of a team right now.

I will say that this is probably the most balanced team in the league. They stink out loud in all three phases. Offense stinks. Defense stinks. Special teams stinks. And they all did their part in tonight's debacle.

Also, it was nice having a running game for 1 week anyway, now Mendys hurt again, and so is Redman. So back to having shit in the backfield again.

I'm not angry...I was after Denver and Oakland, but I've accepted that this is just not a very good team. Injuries have hurt, no doubt, but that's part of it.

Troy is injury prone. Woodley apparently is, too. James is near the end and is injury prone. That isn't luck, it's a trait, like speed, smarts, strength. We have some aging, injury-prone players that can't be counted on.

Keisel and Hampton are done. Why they're still playing is a mystery. Ike appears to be done. Foote is playing hard but he's the very definition of average.

My expectations on the season now are to see young players emerge, but I'll probably be disappointed there, too, since LeBeau will sink or swim with his over-the-hill gang. Eventually, though, Hampton and Keisel will completely break down physically and maybe we get a chance to see some of the younger guys.

That's the only hope there is right now - that the young guys can replace the vets when they eventually retire. Worilds is impressing the past two weeks, thankfully. Want to see more of Heyward, McClendon, and Ta'amu.

Also want to see our young CB's play physical. They did better that way last night, but when LeBeau fell back on his soft zone, they gave up easy tosses.

Maybe that's the ultimate goal of the season - getting rid of DL. He's playing 90's football.

...that means you're one.

Not my words, Tunch and Wolf's today. Denver/Oakland/Tenn are 3-0 against the Steelers, 2-10 against the rest of the league.

like i said before, this game was a line in the sand. If we don't win this, we don't deserve the playoffs.

it's not like the schedule gets easier from here, the first 5 games were the easy ones. now? don't be disappointed if we suffer some embarassing losses down the stretch. and count on getting swept by the ravens again

The problem is that when the younger guys hit the field they aren't as good as the guys who are worn out. You can't replace the whole team in one year. There's not that much NFL caliber talent out there, that's why they cut the number of draft rounds. So you do what you can and hope your aging guys can hold out another year. Ryan Clark is over 30 and he is the best he's ever been. As I've said before, this is precisely why keeping Arians around so long made me so angry. The offense is showing improvement, but the only RBs who have any business in an NFL backfield have been injured all year, and the defense needs help. We had the best overall talent in the NFL on both sides of the ball for 6 or 7 years and squandered it with a highlight reel only offense for the last 5 of those years. That would have been great if they gave championships based on Sportscenter appearances--give Godell enough time and he will figure out a way, but for now Lombardi's are still obtained by winning games, and our status quo coach wouldn't step up.

Agreed, the game in Baltimore and the game @ the NYG are going to be embarrassing as hell. There have been a few games over the last few years that tell the tale if you look back at them, at least IMO. Getting picked apart in the SB vs the Packers (and the Pats and Saints earlier that year) showed every body how to beat us. Then Week 1 @ Baltimore last year was the beginning of the end for the group we have now (and IMO the coach too). Followed by the 2nd game vs Baltimore where the defense officially left and still hasn't came back. I don't put too much into the Denver/Tebow game because we only had a few healthy starters, but some may list that too. But to me the final blow was the Raiders game 2 weeks ago. I'm sure we'll win a few more games at home, but at this point I'm willing to sit a few losing seasons out while the team COMPLETELY rebuilds, it just needs to be done now while Ben can still lead the newly rebuilt team. But this is Tomlin's team for years to come, so not only will we not completely rebuild, we won't fix the number 1 problem....coaching. This notion that "the Steelers don't rebuild they reload is nonsense. This team and a lot of the players on it have had a great run for years, and in the past we have been able to just "reload", but that's not going to be the case this time. In order to only "reload" there has to be a foundation and there is not one on this defense. Timmons seems to have many off games, Woodley can't stay healthy, Hood is average at best, and nearly every body else only has 1-3 years...time to rebuild.

In retrospect, we saw the preview of this last season, except we won several squeakers against the bottom feeders to mask our problems. Had we lost to any two of Jax, Indy, Cleve, KC, we may have missed the playoffs and undergone more stern self-examination in the offseason.

The bottom is falling out this year, but it was rotting last year.

Well it was a good run....like the Thing says, it's rebuilding time.

Signed, it's getting ridiculous..

The thing that irritates me is not getting our young guys rotated in more. They are the future of the team, and I was so sick of lookin at Hampton's face last night.
I don't think the season is over tho, they can still pull it off, and having BB doesn't hurt.
