That's why they wiped us in the first game of the season. I'm sorry but Arians has to go. I know little Ben loves him and Tomlin doesn't have the balls to split up that love affair. But the change has to come because we are too predictable on offense especially in our own division. I watch the same plays over and over. The Ravens changed this and they made us look silly. I credit it to their turn around of a season where everyone had them finishing near last place.
i don't think they changed much tbh, their offense still has the same philosophy. they just had roster upgrades. no longer are they a team of slow possession WR's, they have fast receivers now. defense is pretty much the same as they always have been. vonta leach was a good addition for them also. makes ray rice even more dangerous in the running game

Or were they just high?
You mean why wasn't Cortez Allen on the field with his separated shoulder? Or why they weren't allowed to pull Curtis Brown off IR? Yeah, must be high.

I see nothing but bigger and brighter things for the Steelers. Finally redmen was given a chance and he excelled. Just like the fans clamored for.
Hoke's playing career is over. Serious neck injury. He's done. You need to keep up on the news.

I thought we should have thrown a few picks at the Patriots last year for Makins when he was holding out...He would have been well worth it!

U know guys; we are all fans and it would be nice to refrain on the nasty comments!! It's obvious our friend is not happy with the secondary and he is correct to be concerned!! I think he is a smart guy and knows who was hurt; but losing does put a sting and it stays in your mind for a long time!! With all that said; i hope they sign a top corner or draft one!! you can never have enough good ones especially when guys get hurt!!

You are right , being nasty is pointless, however, if you are going make comments towards the players that are equally as nasty, have the for sight to actually know what you are talking about, 3 of those young corners the Steelers are high on, Brown, Allen and Lewis were all injured. Only Lewis played with a wonky hamstring, Allen had a separated shoulder and Brown was on I/R.
If people are going to make ridicules statements with out knowing the facts or what the heck they are talking about, they are actually "inviting" negativity towards themselves.
