Default I can't believe I'm saying this........

I can't believe I'm saying this but CONGRATS to the Bengals for dominating both sides of the ball today. As a long time Steeler fan I would have to say that I've never seen a Steeler team so dominated in a game as crucial as this. Let's hear the excuse, Troy didn't play the whole second half. PISS POOR!!!!!!!

No excuses by the Steelers They played a sloppy game and could have taken a sizable lead numerous times.

The Steelers' D did not allow a single offensive TD today, held them to less than 60 yards rushing and pretty much blanketed their receivers all day. Ocho Crotcho had all of TWO catches today. I wouldn't call that Bengals' domination on offense.

Dominated? A FG-fest that ends up 18-12 is hardly a dominant win over the Steelers. We outgained them 226-218. We had a slight TOP advantage, 30:52 to 29:08. It came down to red zone failures.

The Steelers sleepwalked most of this game.

The Bengals won, but they didn't exactly dominate.They did next to nothing on Offense, their run game was shut down, Crotcho was limited. But like any good team, they found a way to win.

That is not excuse-making folks. That's the truth.

The Steelers Defense did their job today. The Steelers Offense and Special Teams did not. And that's why we lost.

Yeah, the fact that the Bungals scored ZERO offensive TDs just screams Dominance. If you are Phil Simms, it does anyway.

Oh, and our pass/run ratio? 40 pass plays, 18 rushes. I know they're the 2nd ranked rush defense, but c'mon. Denver had a supposedly good run defense as well and we tore them up.

The only thing I credit the Bengals for is defense. Their offense was nil. Our offense was clueless. We played our worst offensive game when we needed to play our best.
We missed tackles on defense and special teams sucked. The Bengals weren't as good as we were bad. If they were they would have blown us out. they didn't score an offensive TD either. PISS POOR GAME PLAN on our part. The blame lies on Tomlin and BA. Were in the hell was the no huddle. Why in the hell didn't we use it.
No excuse for this loss except to say our coaching staff didn't take this game serious enough and apparently neither did the players. I'm going to stop here before I start cussing uncontrollably.:banging :
