Steeler Nation wished there were more wins against crap teams this year! I figured if Ben can be disappointed we should let Ben know what is disappointing to Steeler Nation! Point is, there's no need to be blaming, just be quiet and start playing football.:tt04::tt04::tt04:

I don't know, maybe this year's team just isn't that good.

I know the thought of this isn't popular, but our 2 signature wins were against an inconsistent giants team that was hit by a hurricane earlier that week, and against a ravens squad that was just starting to tailspin

there's a lot of talent on the team, and they are capable of beating anyone, they just need to fix some issues in the offseason, mainly the mental mistakes. this offense needs a running game, and quick, or they will continue to be 1 dimensional and not live up to their potential

It's dissappointing to hear Ben talking about the lack no huddle and play calling. We win that game of Brown doesn't fumble that ball, catches that punt or Ben doesn't throw that Int in OT. WTF is he talking about no huddle??!!

That's the problem with this team IMO, every week it's the same old song. Week after week we hear from the players that we will turn this thing around. Week after week the same thing happens. Here is the typical 2012 Steeler game:
Steelers Offense starts out slow, steelers defense holds it's own. Steelers offense still sputtering. Defense holds it's own and gives up a FG. Steelers TO (fumble), Opponent scores TD after tired Defense gives up a TD. Steelers down 10-0 so now the Offense finally starts to play. Offense scores a TD, Defense holds. Offense gets into FG position, Suisham makes FG. Tied at Halftime. Steelers D holds after halftime Kickoff, Offense 3 and out, Steelers defense holds. Either a ST TO or Ben throws an interception. Tired defense gives up TD. Offense, 3 and out. Defense holds yet again. Punt returned for a TD by the Steelers, wait there's a flag, block in the back. Offense down 7 wakes up again and gets a TD, tie game. Steelers KO and ST's gives up a big return. Defense holds opponent to a FG. Steelers up 4 with two minutes left to play. Opponent kicks off to the Steelers, Rainey takes it 3-yards deep in the endzone and gets hit at the 17yd line and fumbles. Opponent takes over and scores game-winning TD.
Stop me if you've heard this before.

Speaking of crap teams, I'm just very proud, as a Steeler fan, to be cheering against the 6-7 (yes, 6-7) Jets because of the playoff implications for the Steelers.

Yup, you nailed it. Great post!

I would just also add ST gets big return to midfield. Offense goes 3 and out.

And a couple more turnovers.

If Arians was here, he would have taken advantage of the great field positioning. OR NOT.

Getting hit by something like that gives your team emotion and passion to win - it doesn't deflate your team and work against you. That, and the officiating in that game was so fucking bad that we had to beat the Giants and the refs. Regarding the Ravens, I think we sent them into a tailspin. They were beaten at home which ended their winning streak with a third string, 38 year old quarterback. That, on top of their injuries, is a pretty good way to fuck a season up.

This teams problem is very, very simple: inconsistency.

and inconsistency is a result of lack of discipline. Lack of discipline is a lack of focus. Lack of focus is a lack of determination. Lack of determination is a lack of desire. Lack of desire is a plateful of complacency.

Does that sum it up?

You forgot injuries. Usually in the first series on either side. First quarter at the latest.

Thanks for all the comments! In light of the past few games I figured I would sum up what most in Steeler Nation are thinking, I'm glad we can laugh about it! Let's hope this is not actually how the Cinci game will turn out but if it is we won't be surprised.

I am very much convinced that they are lacking discipline. Young money has been full of young mistakes. I hope they learn from all this.

This. I was just thinking about it as well.

Not only have we lost to bad teams, we really have not beaten anybody playing good football. This team might actually be worse than it appears and that is a scary thought.

I could see this scenario happening-We're down 4 and after a sack we face a 4th and 13 on the Bengals 40 with a minute to play and no timeouts. Ben hits Antonio Brown on an out pass that looks certain to get the first down, but he runs out of bounds after an 11 yard gain because he thinks he has to stop the clock. Then to add insult to injury, Brown does a dance out on the field not realilizing we just turned the ball over on downs and lost the game.
