Default Re: Does anyone recall a Steeler team this bad at tackling?

This^. There is no more Steeler heart. That went out with Cowher and Porter. In 2008 the team was so good that they got pumped up and played with heart on their own, these new guys are just football players. They don't seem to bleed black and gold like the teams did in the Cowher era. Now that more vets have retired and the ones that are playing have really dropped off, there is no more "Steeler mentality". ST is worse then the defense though. The defense played really well vs BAL twice and vs the Giants and Bengals, there's just too many injuries in the secondary now to even be a decent pass defending team. If our CB's get back then LeBeau will have the defense playing like it did a few weeks ago, but I think we need a new HC soon. I'm sure some on here disagree, but we are out-coached often and Tomlin does not light a fire under this team.
