Default Steelers should be 6-2

The Chargers and Jaguars were the only teams that really beat us -- the rest of them, we beat ourselves - my biggest fear is the Steelers will start trying to fix a lot of things that aren't broke - we fix the turnovers and maybe get a shut down corner and we're there - this team even at 2-6 can still play with and beat any team in the NFL ...

And the Raiders should have beaten the Steelers in the 1972 playoffs - breaks and mistakes are part of the game.

This team has failed to respond to adversity and its record is an accurate reflection of that flaw.

You make a great point. It's not like we were getting blown out in all the games that we lost. The damn turnovers are killing us. The physical level of play has been there as well. We are definitely hanging in there with some of the better teams of the league.

This will illustrate my point further -

If the Steelers played the Colts next week, I would still feel comfortable thinking we have a good chance to win that game - I would not give the same chance to the other 2-6 teams like the Raiders, Lions, etc -

Let's just say that after yesterday I respectfully disagree - on offense the way to beat the Colts is to run the ball, something the Steelers have abandoned, and on defense the match-ups of Harrison and Wayne on this year's versions of Townsend and Taylor would not be a pleasant sight.

Yikes! I think the Colts would have the game in hand by halftime....easy. The Steelers barely beat the Colts last year in the playoffs when everything was going much better.

Voting with my heart, I take the Steelers over the Colts. If I were not a fan of either team, I take the Colts with no hesitation. The Steelers ruined the "playing for respect", or the "playing desperate" idea with how they played yesterday.

Hines called everyone out yesterday after the game. Let's see how they react against the Saints.

I'm not talking just from my heart - this team has lost 4 games where they gave up huge turnovers -- this is a fixable thing - the Saints are 6-2 and they don't scare me at all - Hey where is Lacey, WA?
