I have been saying that since last year. He has lost his innovative edge.

No this loss is squarely on Tomlin, if he keeps letting players sit out of practice and "rests" them on gameday this happens. Tomlin needs to realize, the Steelers are playing defense with 2nd and 3rd string people. I am not impressed with the effort, I thought Worilds would be better than he is, it is also time for "Big Snacks" to realize he is done. I know LeBeau's view but it is time for the younger guys, to include rookies, to see the field.

Honestly guys. We need to realize we cant stop anyone and today proved it. This d has regressed so badly; and yes Lebau is the coach of this disaster. I've been saying it for along time; time to move on!! They make every nfl qblook like he is a hall of famer. Who predicted 6 and 10. Looks very realistic right now.

I love how all of the sudden LeBeau has forgotten how to coach. This is about personnel people. Eventually, you knew the guys who made the defense what it was for a decade were going to leave. Well, we have not replaced them with people as good. Maybe that's impossible. It sure is hard. But don't discount how good Farrior, A.Smith and even the guys who are still there that are a shell of their former selves. Face it. We were spoiled. It's a new era of Steelers football defensively and it doesn't look good.

Today's game was the most pitiful effort I have seen from the Steelers since the 60s. This defense must go.....it just cannot compete in the NFL. As much as I like Lebeau, it is time for him to go. His time is past. There is no defensive imagination anymore, they can't stop anybody.

I am tired of the Steelers defense giving up play after play, allowing mediocre teams (it could be said that the Steelers themselves are mediocre) to play them toe to toe....how many times are the Steelers coaches going to tolerate the defense giving up the winning score in the last minute?

The running game is a laughing stock. The offensive line is horrible. There is no defensive rush. The defensive backs play 5-9 yards off the receiver (automatically allowing the receiver to be "open"). Wallace and Brown can't seem to hold on to the ball......they cost two scores today due to their fumbles.

This team is bad. It's gonna be a long, long season. Hey, at least they won't lose next week.

Throw in the fact that Ziggy Hood is not a very good player.
He creates no push and gets moved laterally way too easy
I thought I read he was one of the strongest players on the team?

I think we honestly made the mistake of playing down to a supposedly "lesser team" to capitalize on a bye week. It was a gambit that a lot of teams take, but as this game proves: that plan isn't full proof. This was a textbook example of your classic "trap game" - and we fell for the trap. And I think people are being a little too hard on LeBaeu.- after so many years of consistently running great defensive teams, I find it a little bit odd to just throw him under the bus 3 games into 2012. In the end, it's the players who need to execute. And they didn't.
