Run Def wasnt that bad
 
Take away 2 plays, and its 50 yards.

Howver you do not know if they let up, or they stepped up.

Smith didnt help much at all, so he certainly didnt step up. Im considering erases the signed helmet of his I have. LOL

I thought the post title was sarcastic. Are you kidding? This was one of the worst rushing defense performances I've seen in years. Almost 200 yards rushing by the Ravens. This would be bad for the Carolina Panthers, and no one expects much from them. This is abysmal for the Steelers!

The run defense was worse than you think. Lucky the flakey coach for the ratbirds kept calling pass plays or they would have had 300 yards rushing.

I thought the CBs did a decent job. It was the LBs and the S that couldn't cover backs and TEs. Seemed to be a good deal of disorientation amongst those players. A few times I was thinking it was mighty nice that Timmons and Palamalu got their big deals done before the season, because they sure sh!t the bed in this game. Hopefully, they got that crap outta their system and can figure out what they're made of going forward.

It was bad. Ray Rice is a great running back though and he was the last guy to run 100 yards on our D so it's not like we let some untalented guy run on us.

Re: Run Def wasnt that bad
 
when your own "O" hands your own "D" 7 Turnovers, + the obvious fact that the "D" has been basically on field 80% of the time, and getting tired, then what the heck did u expect from any Defense ?!
The Defense was not good, but read above line again,. and tell me just how much better could they possibly try to be.
Run Def was as good as it was gonna get, under those circumstances.

all I know is 7 -Turnovers is ridiculous, and the Steelers should embarassingly burn that fact tonite into their memory banks, especially Ben.
Ben's post-game comments sounded feebly childish, with silly little excuses, no kudos there.
Hey Ben, just admit it, they killed you, fair n' square. just move on.
Well, we'll all see soon, regular season has just started.

Is it just me or does Mendenhall cough up the ball every time we play you guys?

Not really

I don't think it's fair to blame Rashard for his fumble today though, he hardly got a hand on the ball before Ngata steamrolled him

ben shoulda tucked that ball and fell on it instead of handing it off. from the start that play was going nowhere and mendy was hit before the ball was even fully exchanged

IF our o-line was any good rashard would be one of the premier backs in the league, it seems like he has to beat 2-3 players just to make it back to the line of scrimmage on almost every play

Don't know if I'd go that far. It's hard to imagine a lineman having a straight line at the handoff right away.
