Default This was a 2007-style loss

This loss reminded me of when we lost to the Jets in 2007. We had plenty of opportunities to put the game away, but we made some mistakes and let the other team hang around, and then they bit us in the ass late in the game.

At least it's not a conference loss...

This team really has a 2006 repeat written all over them.

Have all the talent in the world, but don't have the killer instinct to put teams away.

Have all the Defense in the world, but can't stop anyone when it counts.

We didn't look particularly impressive against the Titans, who are now 0-2, and now we lose to a mediocre Bears team. Last year, we lost to the Eagles (NFC Runner Ups), Giants (Defending Champs, NFC East Winners), Colts (12-4, AFC Seed #5), and the Titans (13-3 AFC Seed #1). All for except the Eagles and Titans games, we were in it against some very talented teams. Those teams were actually good.

The Bears I don't get that feeling as the teams we lost to in 2008. This definately has a 2006-2007 type of loss. Late Game, slopping up the field on the road, letting a crap team hang around, Defense blows it down the stretch and we lose. The losses last year frustrated me, but I took solace in the fact that those teams were contenders. I don't take any solace in losing to the damn Bears, who will likely go 9-7 at best. The Steelers did a great job resurrecting the ghosts of their 2006 selves. Fat, Happy, No Fire. Isn't that right, Mr. Dispenser-Puncher?

I hope Pittsburgh is dogged endlessly in the media this week with a big divisional game in Cinci looming on the horizon. The Bungs are just licking their chops going after Tyrone Carter. Why is he still on the team by the way?

Yup, season's over. Let's forfeit the rest of our games so we can get a top-10 pick in the draft. We suck.

I agree that this team has a 06 feel to it. Who would have thought that after 2 weeks we could possibly be 1-2. I hate having to chase the Ravens. This team has no fire to it. Where is that chip they had last year? And my gosh are we ever gonna stop the TE position? And why do no name WR always have coming out parties against us?

To be honest this team tanking might help them a high rated Olinemen in the draft. Itís performances like this that make all the analysts pick other teams. Chicago should have been destroyed yesterday.

We should do that and use the pick on Michael Crabtree. Maybe Plex will be out of jail by then too.

I just can't believe our defense allowed the Bears to drive 97 yards for a TD. That's ridiculous.

They better pull their heads out or Cincy will beat them too.

Negative Nancies all over the place. We had that game in the bag. S**T happens. Sometimes you lose. This team is nowhere near as bad as that 2006 team. Not even close. They did not look as bad as you all seem to think. The defense cannot hold everyone for every single game they play on every series. It is impossible. Lebeau will have to adjust for the loss of Troy. Plain and simple.

No matter how all y'all try to sugarcoat this loss...

Ravens next play at home against Browns to go 3-0.

Steelers-Bengles loser falls to 2 back in the division.

They better pull their heads outta their asses
