You can ask Raider fans all about that, they have known this in the worst way the last decade. However, the Pats have been doing the same thing over and over again for a while now, and if not for 2 plays, would have two more super bowls.

However, Mendenhall, while talented, has major focus issues. Focus is what killed this team this year. We can blame injuries all we want, but there were games that were virtually over that the Steelers let slip away in the final quarters. When a team loses to shitty teams, with double digit leads in the final quarters, its focus that lets it slip. This is the fault of the head coach and your leaders on the team. The Steelers do not have a leader on this team, the last two retired last year, Farrior and Ward.

Big Ben is not a leader, no matter what anyone thinks. Troy and James are wrecking balls of fury, they are lead by example types. The only ones close to being a leader is Ryan Clark, and Larry Foote after him. But they are at the end of their careers as well.
too bad those 2 wrecking balls spend half the season in street clothes.

Ben leads by example. He plays hard and hurt, something both Harrison and Troy have not done.
