STAND UP AND MAINTAIN THE GAPS DERP GAP DISCIPLINE GUUUHHH

HERP GIVE RECEIVERS A 7-YARD CUSHION DERP.

DONT ATTACK, READ AND REACT. DON'T GIVE UP THE BIG PLAY HURR DUHH


Results:

15th Ranked Rush Defense.
24 and 34 Points given up in consecutive road games. Both losses.
Yeah, that's the problem. Opponents aren't making the mistakes our defense counts on. Denver and Oakland scored on all of their 2nd half drives.

Plus, we're giving up big plays. 70+ yarder in Denver, 40+ yarder vs. NYJ, and 60+ yarder in Oakland.

It's just not working. Something has to change. Hopefully Tomlin's 4th down attempt with the game on the line was the first salvo to LeBeau that the defense, as currently schemed and manned, isn't working.

In Comparison. The Jets game. Steelers switch to an aggressive man defense. No titty-fight gap control on the D-Line, no crappy Zone Cushion, the Defense attacks insteads of reacts...

NEW YORK DIDN'T SCORE AGAIN. CAM HEYWARD GOT A SACK. NO TROY OR JAMES HARRISON.

Whaaa? No-no. We can't have that. We can't have our D-Linemen getting sacks. That's a No-No. We must play GAP CONTROL. Methinks the Jets game probably hurt Lebeau's ego and pride that HIS Defense didn't work (or wasn't the one that Shut down the Jets) and was destined to prove that it could against an anemic offense like Oakland...

20 POINTS GIVEN UP IN THE SECOND HALF. FIVE CONSECUTIVE SCORING DRIVES. TWO 10-POINT LEADS BLOWN. 13 UNANSWERED POINTS AFTER A 31-21 LEAD. STEELERS LOSE 34-31. LOL.

Dickard the Genius De-Pants'd Again.

It's not working. Dickard's way isn't working. It didn't work when Troy was in there, it won't work with him back. It doesn't work. It's not the talent. It's all on Dickard.

Send Hampton and Kiesel to the bench, bring out Heyward and McClendon. Stop the 10-yard cushions. Sitting back and hope the QB makes mistakes doesn't work anymore. It's Predictable and NFL Offenses have caught on to it. Let Hood, McClendon, and Heyward get after the QB and attack the O-Line. They're Young, Athletic beasts that can terrorize if given the chance. Stop telling them be fat sacks of crap standing there to fight off the O-Line and PLAY TITTY FIGHT GAP CONTROL.

I think that Casey the Hutt has been done for about four years. My friends and family all make fun of me, because they completely disagree. Regardless, I obviously think that he should not have even been brought back, let alone starting.

I'd rather die with a young & energetic Ta'amu (and/or McClendon) than live with The Hutt.

The Beard... wow!!! he simply fell off of a cliff. He was great two years ago; good last year; and is ineffective this season.

I've always liked Heyward. He needs to be starting... and have thought so since the day that he was drafted (origianlly: start over Hood; now: start over Keisel).

Like we did with Smith, we are keeping around a has been out of some weird loyalty. Instead of putting him at #2 or cutting him, we start him. Great call. Tomlin takes full responsibility, I'm sure.

What!?! Casey doesn't work out routinely during the off-season!?! He doesn't have a consistent work out regimine!?! I simply do not believe it.

[Side-note: I rememebr when Natrone Means was playing for the Chargers, and i knew a girl who was "dating" him, and the dude would routinely go to In-N-Out (a burger joint, famous for its double-double hamburgers: two patties, two slices of cheese) and eat a quintuple-quintuple (a burger with five patties & five slices of cheese). He quickly ate himself out of a starting job.]

Actually Cowher was the king of not knowing when to put the cow out to pasture.

Bettis
Kordell
Gildon

To name a few....

Bettis was still productive and not an every down back at the end...He had FWP there with him...

Gildon was an All Pro in 2002, he left in 03'....

Stewart was indeed an issue...

Only thing Kiesel is doing well right now is slapfighting the O-lineman.
Hampton is so fat and wasteful its hard to believe hes still a starter
Hood is doing nothing but taking up 1 blocker on most plays.
Why did we draft Cam?
Might as well put Worilds on the line also with all the weight he gained.
