Every team in the league knows how to attack the Steelers 3-4 with the 10 yard gaps on the WRs. They just throw an out route and pick up the 7-8 yards they need on third down. This leads to scores or bad field position for the Steelers because there are no 3 and outs. Game in and game out. This team was very disappointing to watch this year. They showed just enough flashes of good play to keep us hoping they would gel later on. Tomlin is going nowhere unfortunately. But the elder Rooney will be back from Ireland so I hope he lights a fire under the coaching staff.
Steelers would be lost without LeBeau. Him and his defensive scheme kept this team competitive and alive this season.
The majority of the blame lies on the offense which repeatedly shot itself in the foot with 3 and outs, negative plays and a plethora of turnovers.
