Default Where's the D...

I mean Cmon....The D has been incredible all year long....But you tellin' me that they can't get to one of the slowest, most imobilbe QB's in NFL history....Give me a FREAKIN' break, where are the blitz's to get to Kerry Collins, I don't see them...Plus, there has been some terrible play calls on the O side of the ball also....The coaches need to take a look at what happened and this game plan today, cuz IMO, IT STINKS....Plus, I love Big Ben, but ya can't turn the ball over when your ready to drive into the end zone....And Jeff Reed, WTF, a 33 yd field goal ya miss, TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE, there is NO EXCUSE for that, it might be windy, but from 33yds and your a pro, NO EXCUSE....Steelers really need a DEEP look inside and gut check after this performance in such a BIG GAME.

so far it looks like That the Titans wants it more than us today, i think especially out D looks a little off.

you can see it on the reactions on the players, like they really cant find the energi to play.

the D just looks tired and not fired up and to be honest... I cant blame them lets rather skip the injuries and the win instead of takin the win, #1 seed and injuries after a hard fought game.

Still prayin for the win though

they can get to collins, but he's veteran and smart and he finds people to get the ball to at the last minute.

the defense in general looks tired. i guess playing the top teams in the nfl week after week is finally taking its toll

almost every game this year, we have been meeting TOP offenses and the D have simply reached their limit.
Lets just see if we maybe still can snatch the win and if not.... well the pressure is completely off the players backs.
The Titans will be named the best team in AFC by the media and the Steelers will be under the radar again ready to take the Lombardi trophy.

blame the steelers' offense. this is the only game of the year when the steelers' D has struggled.

the defense can't do everything.

The offense needs to learn to win without the defense. The defense can't win 16 games.

AMEN.

Our OL is embarrassing which hurts our running game. The D can't be expected to win games for us week after week after week and especially not in the playoffs.

Agreed. That's why this isn't a Super Bowl Team.
