Default Re: Our D was bad!

I am harsh on our pass D... but we missed alot of tackles last night. For the amount of time they were on the field i can see why and see why... We defiantely played well enough to win, though when i saw Cowher chewing out taylor and Carter.. i was happy cause too much missed tackles.

Our offense is what was bad and i dont care about Ben being rusty or sick or whatever it was ... the offensive line was just flat out disappointing... We are SUPPOSE to have if not the best, then close to the best in the league and we pretty much stunk it up on the O LINE. I continuously saw Jax defenders at the ball upfield while players had there back turned or were still trying to get to the spot to block. I am sure Grimm will get that fixed and i do expect alot of ass chewing in the upcoming weeks.

In all honesty.. we didnt look any better than Oakland or Tenn up front.. it was constant pressure and nowhere to run... If anyone was grading, you would have to give them an F.

Sounds like a tired defense to me.
Yeah, last time I checked that's only 33% on 3rd down for the Jags. That is a horrible staff and I'm sure that Jacksonvilles coach was not too thrilled with thier offensive performance last night. Eventhough they got down the field and scored 3 field goals. What if our offense was running at par rather than sub-par? The Jags played a really good defensive game but, we could have opened it up a bit in the 2nd half.

Defense has some improvements but overall they kept us in the game. The Jags have a very good offense with those three big WRs and a healthy Taylor, not to mention Leftwhich who was accurate as heck last night with his little out patterns.

Remember, the Steeler's philosophy, even though I don't think they'll admit it out loud, is bend but don't break. Give up the 7 yard out pattern and 7 yard slant but don't give up any big plays. If in fact that is their philosophy like I think it is, they executed it to perfection last night!
