Bruce Arians is laughing his ass off at the entire city of Pittsburgh right now.... getting involuntarily retired was the best thing that ever happened to him.

No, Andrew Luck was.

the Chargers have gotten to PITs receivers early several times today with absolutely no call.
One guy even grabbed the back of the shoulder pads and pulled ABrown down before the ball got there with no call.

It isnt why PIT is going to lose, but is sure hasnt helped at all.

You know the PIT CB's could be close to any of the San Diego Receivers...

Ben has gotten into the habit of locking into one receiver. He's not going thru his progressions as much as he used to.

Nantz and Simms just called out Tomlin and rightfully so. Could have made it a two-score game, but Tomin can't do math either. Again, keep defending him as the evidence keeps piling up. Loss to the Raiders, Lost to theTtians, Lost to the Browns. Lost to the Chargers. Could have easily lost to the Chiefs.

I'm not sure why we think that limping into the playoffs and barely showing up for HALF of the regular season will change our Playoff fortunes.

Maybe if we get on a run in the last 4 games but our current play shows we'll split those and go 9-8 or so.

I've been less and less impressed with Tomlin since the GB SuperBowl. Today's level of ineptness was just amazing... they just didn't care at all.

The ravens have beat a ton of teams that we have lost to. In fact most of the league has beat SD, Tenn, Clev and Oakland...so who cares what Baltimore is doing

Any time the Rats lose is a good time!

Surely that would be better than overconfident Ratbirds fans?

I live with Skins fans, I never have to deal with Ratbirds fans except on the internet. So no.

Im sure Phil is hightailing it down to the field so he can french kiss Norv. God he was so annoying.

Does Phil like Dallas? Im sure we are going to have to hear his BS next week as well.

All it did today was put those damn JETS back in the playoff picture. WTF. Now we have way too many losses to AFC teams. We cannot win any tiebreakers against anyone at this point.

Yep this. Feel where he's coming from about Redskins fans though. But for once, I'm really glad they won because of who they were playing.

Hate to say this, but we could be 1 game out of the division lead if we had decided to play football before the
2nd half of the 4th quarter.

Exactly. And, we (on paper) have an easier schedule the rest of the way. I can see the Ravens losing a couple more.

This loss may come back to bite us.

Rats get Peyton Manning next week. Who knows? This loss just really hurt on so many levels.
Watch, next week, SD will play like chite. This was their super bowl, playoffs.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I feel better or worse now with the Rats and Bengals losing. I'm glad I didn't have the chance to win today.

This is why I question Tomlin at times. According to our record, every game we play including this one, are the Steelers' Superbowl and playoffs as well. We can't afford to take games off. We did that 3 times already this year.

Why we can't seem to step up and beat the teams that we should beat points to the coaching.

When you are on the bubble at 7-5 this should have been our Super Bowl too.

The Steelers are an up and down team and will probably finish out the season that way (and if we make it the playoffs we'll probably see the same sloppy inconsistent play)

Hopefully, they go on a run like we did previously, GB did, and Giants did. We'll see :tt04: :tt: :tt02:

I'm not holding my breath though Tomlin's preparation and intensity has been all over the board.

I think that this is a product of being the Steelers. What do the Steelers represent? Winning, consistency, Super Bowls, years of excellence. And that is why to beat the Steelers represents a season defining victory to teams like SD. Well, maybe not season defining but you get my point.

It is like being Kentucky in college basketball, being the Lakers or Celtics in the NBA or Alabama in college football. If teams beat PIT, they can point to it as a quality win whether or not PIT is any good.

For the next couple days, SD is going to feel like they are the toast of the NFL. ESPN is going to show their highlights over and over. That is what beating PIT gets them. They wouldnt get that from beating any other 7-5 team in the league no matter who it is.

Tomlin has to know this and has to have his team prepared to play with a bullseye on it back every game.

But the standard is the standard so...well.....whatever that means okay.

I hear ya llama. The team figured that since Ben was back and SD was 4-8 with a lame duck coach, all they had to do was show up at Heinz Field and collect their win and THAT is on Tomlin.

The team had no focus. The team had no urgency until late in the game. The team just figured they had this in the bag. SD came out focused with a chip on its shoulder.

When the Steelers play say the Giants on the road, they know they have to focus and be sharp. When they play a wounded team like SD in PIT, they just think they are entitled to the win and it bit them in the arse today.

Nothing. The margin between teams is slim.

Wait.........there's nothing wrong with this team? Where should we start?
How about 4 lackluster losses to supposedly inferior teams.
But maybe that's your point.....there is a very slim margin between us and inferior teams.

We are what our record says we are. We cannot beat lousy teams. That means we are a pretty lousy team. That is all there is to it. No focus. No fire. Going through the motions. Dropping passes all over the place. Letting teams pick up 3rd and long over and over and over. We should be celebrating being one game behind the Ratbirds. Instead, we are a laughingstock in the NFL. Lost to Oakland, Tennessee, Cleveland and now San Diego who are all crap teams with not 10 wins among the lot of them. Tried to lose to Kansas City. Yet we still have posession of the final Wild Card spot in our control. I just don't get it.

Disclaimer: Model citizen of Steeler Nation venting here emotionally:
The Browns wiped the floor with KC, while our beloved Steelers barely squeak by them weeks ago..
After this ineptitude of a game against these left-for-dead Bolts, makes me wonder how they're going to be ready for Dallas next week..
Please prove me wrong next week and take this humiliation out on the Cowboys!
I'm sorry, but even with a banged up team, we should have put SD out of their misery..
Coach Tomlin, Coach LeBeau, Coach Haley..By order of Steeler Nation, Prove me wrong and win big next Sunday..

There..now it's out of my system..:mad:
