4-2 --It seems to me like in the 2 losses the team didn't show up until the second half, and TURNOVERS!!!!

AZ - Ben throws an INT in the endzone

Denver - Ben fumbles (1/2 ben's fault, 1/2 o-line's fault) and it's run back for a TD.
Possible 14 point swing, Denver goes up 21-7 instead of Pittsburgh con'ting the drive tying the game 14-14 or making it 14-10.

I'm not as po'd as I thought I would be....you're not going to win every game and Baltimore's loss means they're still in first. However, I will be mad if they lay an egg in Cincy. This next game is now must win in my opinion.

Before I got my hopes up in September, my preseason guess had the Steelers 4-1 at the bye and finishing up 10-6 (with road losses to Denver and Cincy).

That may be about right - this team has definite problems on the road the past 2 seasons

I bet the home team is sending call girls to the hotel. Tomlin needs to ensure everyone is in bed the night before.

I really want to know what is up with the screen plays. They are completely unseccessful yet Arians insists on running them time and time again. I don't know how many times we tried a screen and Denver had the thing read from the start.

My guess is that we are telecasting our plays somehow. I would be interested in seeing the tapes to find out how.

Why would you go road loss vers Cincy when the last two seasons we won at there house and they won at our house.. It could be the same this year if we split..


Far as the Denver game can you say, Run Ben Run. Ben runs for his life every game. Ya great offensive line.
Were playing the 32 run defense in the NFL and what do we do come out passing. Pound that rock.
Defense first half, were was the pressure.
Defense last drive, were was the pressure and anyone who plays prevent should be thrown off the mountain.
Why wait till later in the game to get dump offs to willie are screens. Willie is dangerous in open field. Willie has 8 catches for 43 yards. Ya that number should be higher. Ben should use his check down more.
Starting in Cincy we will start to make are push for the playoffs. So now we will see what tomlin is made of.

And remember peeps, when was the last time we went 3-0 to start a season. What do we normally do in the first 6 games of the season in the last 20 years. Some of us old time fans know we take bumps in the first 6 games. We have not started off 4-0 since the 70s, and last time we started off 3-0 was 92. So the world is not fallen over a couple losses. We have to play are best ball down the stretch.
Ben did what he had to do the last part of the game without a mistake. That is the most important. It was another game we let slip by.

you do realize that willie did have 21 carries? 11 of which was for 1 yd or less. 51 of his 93 yds were on 2 runs of 27 and 24 yds.
