I didn't say I'd give up on them, but it's time to get their turds shaking hands.

Hard to say. They've only played two games so far out of sixteen.

It's possible to be a fan of a team and have a realistic opinion of their abilities.

All jokes aside, this Steelers team has not met 'the standard' thus far.

What the heck happened in Cleveland? They get rid of their best player, insert their third string QB and their rookie TE scores 3 TDs. HUH????? The universe has turned upside down.

The upgrade from Brandon Weeden to... just about any other QB is extremely tangible.

I hate it when people say stuff like this. Just because a fan is knowledgeable doesn't mean that he's any less of a fan. Give me a fan who understands what he sees and appreciates it any day.

Based on the 2 games they've played, I'd have to say yes. They're just God-awful - completely inept and clueless. I normally don't care about pre-season, but I've seen the same problems carry over to the regular season and I see no solution. The few remaining players from the Cowher era have gotten older and slower - Polamalu being the exception since he's been injured so much these past few years. I'm not impressed by most of Tomlin's picks - some of them are outright disasters. The O-line is absolutely horrendous and as a result, the running game will be non-existent and Ben will be running for his life, so expect a lot of sacks on him this season. This team may very well finish the season below .500: 6-10 or 7-9. If they finish 8-8 or better, I'll be shocked. So in short, yes, this is a bad team. One of the worst? So far, yes.

Well - unless there's a dramatic turnaround - we are no doubt one of the worst teams in the leage.

You can just pretty much leave it as this : We can't move the ball, we don't score TD's, and we don't strip fumbles or intercept passes on defense.
If anyone can speak up and tell me how you win in this day and age when you don't do any of those 4 things, i'm all ears.

Through two games, we are one of the worst in the league so far. But it's only two games. A lot of teams got their shit together today, the Ravens being one of them. The Bengals somehow defeated an elite QB today to beat the Packers. The 49ers are losing as we speak, and may go to 1-2. Are they one of the worst in the league. Do you really think that's how they'll play all year? There's way too much football left to decide anything right now.
