Talk about angry? And I mean the verge of committing murder? My first name starts with a "T" and my last name starts with the letters "B" and "O."

A Denver friend of mine called me "T-BO" religiously after that one. Yep, torture.

Few truer words have been spoken, or typed, or whatever.

I think it does have an identity, capable of beating anyone, but is poorly prepared, poorly coached and flat whenever we're playing a poor team.

That's who we are now, totally inconsistent. Just when you think we're ready to roll we embarrass ourselves @ home against a 4-8 team, and let's mot kid ourselves here, the final score flattered us.

Calling Jon Gruden.

I remember that play vividly. He was tackled so hard that I thought for sure a flag was going to drop under the "new" NFL safety guidelines.
If memory serves me right, no penalty was called on that play.

I'm pretty sure they're the Steelers - that's what is says on their helmets, anyway.

Of course that's only on one side so if they're running the other way you really can't tell who they are. (maybe that has something to do with the Jekyll & Hyde thing?)

I love it. Maybe you have a point here.

You know, it seems to me that the announcers have been saying pretty much that since Cowher left. Seriously, every year under Tomlin I get sick of hearing tv announcers say, "the Steelers are a team struggling to find their identity." After six seasons I think you can safely call that their identity. The defense seems to have an identity. It changes from year to year, but it's usually something along the lines of "suffocating." If they are having a down year they are just dominant. But special teams and the offense are a different story. I guess really, special teams have had an identity for the past six years too, it's called game changingly horrible.
