It seems a lot of "water boys" are chiming in and trying to say "fire everyone". I wonder if most of them are actually Ravens fans.....Hmmmm

How can you sit here and defend the play calling in the last play of the Broncos game? As a steelers fan, I'm allowed to criticize my team. I live in DC, where Redskins fans are blindly loyal to a team that sucks, so I'd much rather speak my mind about a team that is FAR more successful. The team that I have loved since birth, and still love.

With that out of the way... listen up: we had NO safeties back in coverage in the last play of the game. How does that make any sense when you KNOW that the game will NOT be over if the Broncos just get a field goal? If we had dropped ONE of our safetys back, we likely stop Thomas in field goal range. They probably make a field goal. Then we can come out and do our thing. Maybe even get a touchdown.

Sorry, that doesn't make sense. If that was Dick's call, that is just the third strike on what has been a strange season for him. Did anyone see our defense against the 49ers, not adjusting our play calling? Did anyone see freakin Joe Flacco rush down the field in the closing minutes of the game against the Ravens and win?

the only thing that really stands out in my mind from that game is a rookie DE completely owning our ass and our offense only scoring 3 points.

sorry.

(more proof that lebeau is held to the standard of pitching a shut out EVERY SINGLE GAME)

Why is it that so many are talking about what a great game tebow had. He only completed 10 passes, less than fifty percent. the first big gainer was after tebow scrambled around forever and Taylor did not get his head around to find the ball. The one downfield to the te looked to be Troy gambling and losing. The td to Royal was Gay not being able to get his head around to find the ball. It just seems that all of the big plays can be traced to poor db play as opposed to poor scheming by Lebeau. That being said I would like to see a more aggressive pass rush.

Yep, 10 pass plays. Tim Tebow, THEE Christ, one of the worst QB's to ever grace a yardline, had a 31.6 yard per average. That's called finding LOOPHOLES in a defense playing our of their scheme. I've said it once and I'll say it again. NOT adjusting doomed us. We have to be one of the most stubborn teams when it comes to in-game adjustments. Sick and tired of it biting us in the ass. The coach's didn't put our players in the best position to win, PERIOD.

It really pains me to say this, but I agree. I think hes done his due and he should go down as the greatest D coach EVER. All legends must end right? Im sure the Steelers will do their best to find THE best D coach out there. We NEED to go back to our old roots.

I have alot of hope for the 2012 Steelers.

Lebeau should retire.

FIRE ARIANS

Trade IKE

it pains me to say this too...trade WALLACE!!

The dude has such a ego problem. Dont get me wrong. I LOVE seeing Wallace catch for a 50 yard pass, but the dude cant show up when it counts. If HOLMES was in the position as mike during the packers SB, I believe we would have won. Him and BEN are not on the same page.

TRADE GILBERT

GET HEALTHY

















WIN #7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even though I do agree with you that I see Wallace is the type of kid that would have an attitude problem (seems like a punk) you do know that it was Mike Wallace catching that last touchdown from Ben to bring us within a couple points in Super Bowl XLV, right? Ben and Wallace starting getting out of sync once teams starting quadruple teaming him, hence, the emergence of Antonio Brown. Wallace had guys beat, Ben's ankle problems just couldn't get it there although that 53 yard drop against Denver was HUGE.

I think you need to check that knee-jerk, Stairway2-7. LeBeau will be here next year. I can't blame him too much when you are patching your linebackers together with second-stringers all season. Not to mention they lost the mainstay of the D-line in that game.

When our offense needed a score at the end of regulation, they couldn't get it. I agree FIRE ARIANS!

Ike had a bad game, yes. However, he is one of the main reasons we even made it to the playoffs.

Wallace's contract is up anyway, so he can't be traded. I think he will get mad-money from another team and be gone.

Marcus Gilbert is a rookie we drafted in the second round, give him a break. If not for injuries he wouldn't even be playing this season. I think he had a very good rookie season.

Injuries definitely hurt us in that game, but we were in it with an opportunity to win it at the end of regulation. One excellent play in the OT lost the game. If you really want to blame someone, blame Tim Tebow for working yet another miracle. How can you defy God and destiny?!
