The 'vibe' is natural.

2005 was a loooong time ago in football years (heck, even in regular years!).

Older players are leaving if they aren't gone already. The 04-10 era Steelers (who deserve a nickname for their run ala the 70's 'Steel Curtain' gang) crested two years ago and there's only a possible swan song left until the next crop steps up.

It's not 'over', this is just a natural lull. These things happen.

Of course, there's no reason why that lull (which has still seen competitive stretches) can't end this year.

Timmons gotta step up and be a force.... He did last year...
Someone on the D- line has to also... Me need a blaster in there...

If the o-line stays healthy, I bet they are one of the best in the league....

We need our playmakers sorted out.... IMO this is a playmaker draft for us....

We need more.....

I would have thought a new coordinator, letting several veterans walk, and thrusting unproven players into starting roles was fresh enough.

This would be Todd Haley's second year in command with Ben in this new offense and we've already hired a new o-line coach that is said to implement some type of zone-blocking scheme. There's more to do with the protection of Ben and I hope we can get him into more no-huddle and work at a faster pace, wearing down a defense. If we can find a feature back somewhere in between, that's about as fresh as you can get.

The defense is fine. The scheme works. It's all about getting back that knack into creating turnovers, and getting to the QB. That can happen if Woodley returns to form with guys like McClendon and Heyward getting their feet wet.

That umpty ump is called bill cowher. He's a better coach than tomlin and has a better winning philosophy. Give uncle tomlin some time to catch up to cowhers pedigree and we'll get back on track.. I'm guessing 3-4 more.mediocre.seasons and well be back on the upswing.
