Default Re: Defense came thru in the end, but left alot to be desired

not only was our third down D pathetic .. But Rothlisburger was horrifying to watch as well.. he looked like he did in the Jets game last year.. Joey was twice the qb Ben was today and that's almost a compliment.. We just need to all around step up.. Special teams won us this game hands down.. If we don't stop the 3rd downs and cover hushmanzada or however you spell his name were toast.. Palmer will pick us alive.. Ben just has to stay focused and see the field better than ever to pull this one out.. As long as he plays like the first meeting we'll be good.. And Parker needs 100.. easy goals then it's off to Indy.. Please God.. please let them be bowl bound!!!!!!!!!!!

One aspect I wasn't too thrilled about either was the dropped passes.

we'll be alright, we're in a lot better shape than the bengals are right now thats for sure. they have been struggling the past few weeks. if our defense comes to play (which it should, lot of playoff vets) we will have NO problem beating them.

Some things to think about:
Defense played better in the second half
Detroit DOES have a lot of weapons and had a great gameplane
Harrington played much better than usual
He was taking a lot of 3 step drops to reduce pressure
The 3rd and 13 was all on Ike...when Harrington looked like he was going to run, Ike broke on him and left his man open, so what should have been a forced punt turned in to a long pass.

As for Ben, he didn't look terribly sharp, but there were 5 dropped passes.

All great points. Even Hines Ward had a couple drops, and Cedric Wilson dropped one right between the numbers.
The defense did step it up in the second half. And Harrington was playong for his future, whether it be in Detroit or elsewhere. But the intensity of last weeks game wasn`t there, at least it didn`t seem like it. That needs to change, we need to also get pressure consistantly.

And we have to get back to our Steeler gameplan. The blitz wasnt effecting them at all! What is wrong in the world when the Pittsburgh Steelers defense isnt effective with the blitz??

For the second week in a row, we realized why our defensive players are on defense. We dropped a few more easy interceptions again yesterday. And againstthe brownies , we had our hands on everything and couldn`t hold on. Defense how about some stickem

I totally agree with you BRC... I thought we could have played much better. The Steelers have a way of making the worst quarterbacks on the worst teams look great. Also, we have not played our best at home... I would rather take to the road for the playoffs.
