It's gonna be a tough year especially if Parker has injury issues and now without the savior Mendenhall to back him up.

This isn't the chicken little defense folks, it's reality. I don't know what Tomlin can do now to fix it but maybe ...just maybe (because I've been begging them for years now)...they'll address the lines in the offseason.
yeah, thats all nice, but it doesnt erase the fact that you threw in the towel.

This game as it was played still shows me that the offensive coaching is way below what it should be. Way below.

But you wrote that at half time. It wouldn't matter if it was 31-0... we would then have just as much time to score 31 points as they took to score 31 points. Yeah, the offense stinks; but our defense was keeping us in the game. We were only down 10, and the way Polamalu is playing this year, and Harrison, and Woodley, is it really that far-fetched to think that we could score a defensive TD, like we did?

It doesn't matter to me how you react to the game, and the team. But the fact is, you gave up, at halftime, when we were only down by 10.

It showed me that we have definitive weakness in our O, most notably, the OL.

The Boo's were not all bad guys. Roethlisberger told the media that hearing his home fans boo are what spurred him into screaming at his offense at halftime and ultimately motivating the team to turn it around.

I'm not one to boo my Steelers, but obviously it had some positive effects and was used as motivation.

As for you guys quitting on the team in the first half, shame on you. True Steelers fans knew that we still could turn it around, and had faith.

Our 4th string runningback took us on his back in overtime and the offense willed us to victory (as was owed to the defense for being so strong this whole year). Props to the Steelers for coming together and playing more like they are capable of in the 2nd half. And dare i say good job to Ben AND the O-Line in the 2nd half (no sacks on ben).

I'm ignoring all the other stupid shit in this thread just to point out that, as I predicted, the last Rat fan left this board at just about 10:30 last night, and has anyone spotted any of them since?

They have stayed home from work, and are dejected sitting on the couch in their purple blankey's.

No seriously, with all do respect, the Ravens were tough, and it was a great game last night. I'm hoping that the Steelers have half of their starters healthy come december.

Where I come from, Kvn, booing your team and quitting on them on a BB are one in the same. The boo birds at HF last night had no faith in this team and neither did the schmucks who gave up on them before the end of the 1st half with the game still very much in reach.

What angered me even more is that these same nonbelievers had the audacity to wave their TT's when the team was on the move and act like they were suddenly believers!

No matter what Ben said post-game, there is absolutely NO excuse for booing your own team, imho, especially not a team that wasn't out of the game by any stretch of the imagination when the booing started, and especially not a team/franchise who has provided more winning seasons than most franchises have in the last 35 seasons!

Shame on ALL of them.
