I honestly think we can win. Even after the travesty this last weekend in Oakland...
True . But the patriots can block , tackle , and get after the qb . This is something we have not been able to do very well lately. So who the hell knows . Could we upset the Pats ? absolutely . It seems i'm becoming more confident in the team losing than winning .

Coach Mike Tomlin has talked about developing his team's identity through the years, and one game short of the halfway point of the 2013 season, the Steelers seem to have found one.

Their identity is they have no identity

Not only their 2-5 record identifies what they are, but so does their play.

They are a team that cannot run and cannot stop the run, even by quarterbacks. They cannot sack opposing quarterbacks and cannot protect their own. They give up too many big plays on defense and develop too few on offense. They cannot win on the road and have won just one of three at home.

How's that for an identity?

ha ha - watch out Eddy! that kinda talk will get you in deep trouble with the Blind Homer Posse around here!
