Default Re: Not so fast

That's the point. The Steelers were supposed to at least CONTEND with Baltimore and they got smoked. The Steelers are always expected to beat bottom feeders but that won't win championships.

From what I see, going all the way back to last season, the Steelers will struggle against teams with great pass rushes and against teams with great O lines and passing games.

Even if the Steelers beat the Manningless Colts next week, some will crow about how they are back on track and beating "good" teams. The wins mean nothing unless they are against contender teams.

You can see what great teams do to bottom feeders and how they play against other great teams. Just look at the Pats. Totally blow out the Fins and then roll over the Bolts as well.

Sure the main reason for last week's debacle was the turnovers but there was no offense out there.

They need to find a way to fix these problems fast. I don't care if they need to find a FA O lineman or what, just fix it or Ben will end up on the shelf possibly forever.
