Which one? The Fred Taylor that churned out 147 against us in week 15, or the Fred Taylor that went for 48 yards against us in the Wild Card game?

No matter how many people try to spin it, the Run Defense hasn't been well.

I think he's insinuating that Week 15 Fred Taylor shows up in each game against the Steelers. The Starting D came out for the second week in the row flat and out of position, once again making a young or mediocre QB look like Joe Montana.

I can't believe I'm saying it, but it looks like the Steelers may have to get into shootouts to win games this year. The D looks sick. And not in a good way.

Ditto. Same goes for the O line. Everyone's talkin about how bad the D is, where is our O line? Steelers had an entire off season to get that straightened out, so why is Ben still running for his life on every down and why can't we run the ball for shi*?

Glad to see Clark back on D. He's the only one who bothers reading the plays, but maybe someone needs to teach him how to tackle.

I give this team's performance an "F" tonight. I turned it off after Bill's starting D went out. I don't give a shi* if Ben did throw a 40-yd TD pass. Do it against the starting D and then maybe we'll care.

Sounds to me like it was, well, a PRESEASON game. No big deal. Tomlin will just work on the mistakes and smooth the kinks for next week's PRESEASON game to see how it plays out. Then we've got one more after that. Then guess what?

The SEASON starts. The games you play your starters the entire game and play to win, not play for the sake of snaps and playing time.

Stat-wise, it didn't seem like a bad game. We only gave up two sacks, those by 2-3rd stringers.

Preseason game folks.

Mikah Rucker has to make them catches if he wants to make ANY 53 man roster

i haven't seen the game yet, but i gather the O-line and D-line, which have been neglected for numerous seasons, sucked as usual.

Telling stat - The Bills ran 110 yards vs the Steelers 27 yards by mid third quarter.

Over all I was appalled at what I saw from the Steelers. They got punked by the much more impressive and ready-to-play Bills.

The Bills came to play. They out-played the Steelers in every phase of the game. Their first string looked like first string players while the Steelers first string looked like third stringers in comparison.

The Positives: Thank God the game didn't count. Timmons and Dixon were the only bright spots.

Kemo CAN pull. whenever I saw him pull he mauled the guy in front of him. He was actually the only bright spot on the line.

The Negatives: Where to start?

The Steelers OL, collectively, is still pathetic. They can't run or pass block.

Hartwig was unimpressive.

Colon was awful. He can't handle the speed rush. He's a guard, only.

Starks was a bungling, slow footed buffoon when they drafted him. Now he's an expensive, bungling, slow footed buffoon. Colbert is an idiot for tagging this fool and paying him almost 7 mil. this season!

The Willie Reid experiment is over. He was given his opportunity and he failed to seize the moment. Bye Willie.

Where's the pass rush? Edwards had all day to pick them apart. What makes matters worse is they were playing a vanilla offense without their best Offensive lineman LT, Jason Peters.

The Steelers defense was getting their collective behinds run on all game and by no name backs trying to make the Bill's roster. By contrast the Steelers couldn't run effectively.

Casey looked fat and out of shape. He was a non factor.

I don't believe Troy would have made that much of a difference. Bad is bad and the Steelers were bad.

Where's the tackling? Are you kidding me?! The Steelers DB's were embarrassing themselves! They were missing tackles all game.

The Steelers special teams still look horrible. Once again they allow a kick returner to go all the way for a TD. UGGHH! ENOUGH!

That's another problem from last year. Getting ready/prepared for road games.
