This is why I am trying to get Steelers fans to hold Ben accountable. So far not so lucky.
Bash all the players on the defense except Clark, Timmons and Keisel.
A defense that was 1st against the pass and 2nd against the run.
"Fire Lebeau" and "Fire Haley" threads pop up. RBs need to go, the OL needs to go, Wallace and Mendedhall need to go. (Brown screwed up as much as Wallace but he's a hero for not holding out).
Meanwhile the QB of the 22nd ranked offense, who counts more against the cap than P Manning, Brees or Rodgers next year, who has consistently been surrounded with more talent gets no blame for HIS offense's mediocre performance, and is held as the savior of the franchise.
Don't let our rank fool you. 10 interceptions and ranked bottom 5 on the league in turnovers us what I look at. New England patriots were ranked in the bottom 10 in overall defense but were + 30 or more in turnover ratio.
I'd take that over a top rated defense that doesn't turn the ball over, doesn't pressure the qb, and allowed Tennessee , Oakland , Denver and Cincy to come back and win last minute on them.
