We don't deserve the playoffs
 
Not only getting beat, but getting BLOWN OUT at home against a below average team? Did we just expect to steamroll this game because big mighty ben is back and we made a statement game against the ravens? surely the chargers would just come down and lay down for us, right?

Judging by the play of both offensive lines, if I had to guess one team was losing 3 starters, it would be us, not them.

Tomlin getting out-coached by Norv Turner, who doesn't deserve to be an NFL head coach (which is why he's getting fired), and led the biggest team of under-achievers in the last decade, of course, not to be outdone by us today.

5 games on the schedule after baltimore that we 'should win', of course, that made me nervous, because we 'should have' beaten oakland, tennessee, cleveland, and 'should have' won against KC easily, but did we?

Ever since Tomlin took over, does it seem like we always never win the easy ones? Who takes the blame for not getting the team ready in games we should win? That falls on the HC imo.

I can't even say I'm that disappointed about this game, as our team seems to be predictable in allowing these letdown games to happen against weaker competition. Who knows though, maybe if we manage to squeak into the playoffs, we don't have to worry about 'trap' games since they're all good teams? :chuckle:

but hey it could be worse, at least we didn't get swept by baltimore again.

Agreed. Four bad losses to tomato cans, which makes the Steelers a tomato can.

I'm officially rooting for 7-9 and a roster overhaul now. This team is full of fat cats that need to be put out to pasture.

I won't ever root for 7-9, but this team has some major issues with discipline. under cowher i definitely didn't fear playing weaker teams like I've done since tomlin took over. It seems like we only have good seasons when playing a tough schedule

bring it on, it is what it is. fact is ever since he took over we fall in these trap games a lot more frequently.

and he DID get outcoached by norv today, you guys seen the same game I was watching.

not saying he's a failure as a head coach, but he needs to get the troops ready to play against teams we should be putting away by the first half

I usually hate when the home crowd boos the team, but they deserved every bit of it. the play of the team just screamed 'unprepared' to me

Yep..Its ffffing frustrating as hell to have to edure

This is like a straight up Bane(TDKR Reference) style Torture we have going here

It seems Tomlin and Steelers want to give the fans just enough hope to make the pain feel that much worse when they fold

Blindly saying he should be fired is the dumbest thing anyone could say. The fact of the matter is, the Steelers aren't letting him go anywhere and talking about him being fired is ridiculous.

Saying we don't deserve the playoffs is also ridiculous. The Giants lost to below average teams and often looked average themselves early on in the season last year. Ben needs a week, and we need DeCastro playing - not Doug Legursky. Shit happens and we overlook opponents. This shouldn't be new to you as this is something we've always done and will continue to do. This can be dated back to Cowher, but don't dare criticize Coach Bill, because Tomlin won with his players!

We're not out of this thing, and if we get in, we're going to be dangerous. Ben just needs a week to come back and get back in groove.

I agree with you (fire Arians)1000% but it seems like there's some people here that don't watch the same games we watch:noidea:

It could be worse, getting swept by the clowns.

But yeah this goes squarely on Tomlin. IMO

yeah everything is fine and dandy, we lost to the titans, chargers, browns, and raiders. playoffs here we come? yeah, unfortunately, we have to play more crappy teams like dallas and cleveland (uh oh) again, lol

the giants dropped some games against bad teams, but we literally lost every one against a bad team this year, except the chiefs, who we needed OT to beat, and we were aided by some lucky tickytack penalties in that one

losing in a hard fought battle against a team with nothing to lose, sure I guess that would be acceptable, but you absolutely cannot defend today's debacle. we were destroyed by a bad team at home, what's the excuse for that? time to unleash hell on our opponents? :chuckle:
