EFF YOU BUDDY. Go root for someone else if you are a Steelers fan. But that is highly doubtful. This defense is the only thing that won this game for us. BTW, Leftwich sucks. Batch better be the starter next week if Ben is out or we will get torpedoed big time.

Silly thread. No basis for this discussion.

We got one turnover against a team giving up 4 per game. Sorry, but I'll skip tomorrow's parade.

Agreed. I was saying the same things... such as:

Four straight three-&-outs... why not five???

I expect a turnover on every single opponent's offensive snap.

And...

Unless it's a shutout, LeBeau sucks!!!

know your football.

brian dabol has been the chiefs OC. it is the DC who is newly appointed.

now that you have been schooled, please be sure to further know your football before you start rediculous threads or be prepeared to have your ass clowned.

i believe the defense is honestly, somewhere in the middle of the pack in the league. They're not the worst, but they sure as hell ain't the best....by far.

That said - the offense was HORRIBLE tonight. I couldn't believe how many 1-yard gain and "no-gain" plays we ran...i started to lose count.
And once again : during the last 5 minutes of the 4th, we play "not to win the game - but to play conservatively" and the result of that is 3 and outs and giving the ball back to the other team for them to tie or win. I don't understand. All the other good teams either seal the deal or try to seal it. We don't. Its mindboggling....and it never changes.

Why not 150 yards? Why not zero points? Why not seven INTs?

Hmmm... answer me... I'm waiting.

The answer: LeBeau sucks. If anyone else was DC, I promise the aforementioned would happen 100% of the time.

BTW: Losing sure does suck. Uh...
