DEFENSE LOST THIS ONE!!
 
Ben did a great job to pull it together. Tied the game after beong down on the road under enormous pressure. threw a couple pics that were questionably his fault and a fuble that wasnt. I remeber a couple a weeks ago a guy by the name of ROMO threw 5 picks in a game and guess what, the Cowboys STILL ONE!!! No boys and girls this one was clearlt on the D, they showed absolutly nothing all game, no pass rush or pass coverage. Once again we look like the team of the days with chard scott and toast washinton.

The Steelers weren't playing the Buffalo Bills. The Broncos are actually a decent team. The Bills have 2 wins yes, but the Broncos didn't lose to teams that we won't lose too if we continue to play the way we did. Our defense was poor yes, but turnovers and penalties kill a team. Especially if they are scoring points off of the turnovers, and I don't know if you were watching, ut they were. It was an awful game all around.

If the D cuts down half those points we win.

yes the offense made some mistakes , but i agree, it was the defense who dropped the ball

the defense gave up too many big plays which caused the offense to have to play from behind.

Two interceptions, a fumble, and penalties are why we lost this game. If we turn it over one less time and score on that drive, then the game goes at least into OT.

Offensive penalties killed us, put is in third and longs that killed drives.

Yeah, the defense didn't play it's best football. But it played, IMHO, the most talented team that we've played so far.

You can't give a team like Denver free chances a la turnovers.

You can turn it over 5 times against the sorry ass Buffalo Bills, but not the Denver Broncos.

Bottom line is, if the so-called best D in the league can make one stop we win, Ben got us where we needed to be at the end and the D did not deliver, and only one pick was his fault, and what makes the 2 win broncos any better than the bills, i dont see it sry.

I don't necessarily put the blame for the Steelers loss solely on the D's shoulders. The entire team, as well as the coaching staff, shares in the defeat, imho.

Yes- the D didn't play up to the standard of the first 4 games this season, but the nail in our coffin came shy of the end of the first half when Mahan screwed up the snap to Ben and the fumble resulted in a Broncs' TD. From that point on, the D only gave up 1 more TD until the game winning FG.

I agree with you HTG...but I also think that if this were on a scale... the scale would tilt to the defense in this game.

However, that DOES bring up another point.

The difference between us and the best teams right now, is that when the offense or defense is lacking in a game, the other side is able to pick them up. Now, we were almost able to do that this game... but really. If we were as good as we all thought, wouldn't we have been able to put the ball in the endzone a couple more times?

O -Line didn't help , not sure I'd put this one all on the D....The D gave up 24 points, Pittsburgh's O scored 28 and gave up 7.
