I also disagree that this team doesn't have the leadership or defense of 2005. Unlike 05, this team just won the Superbowl & has as much if not more talent than last year. The issue is that they are not playing to their expected level & that can be fixed. Will it? Who knows? But, the talent is there.
That team had vocal leaders that inspired the team in Porter, Foote, Bettis, KIMO, and Randel El.

Who are the vocal leaders on this team? We have good players, but who steps up and says anything. Who makes a play when Troy is out besides Harrison on defense. Nobody to both questions.

I understand what you are saying about history, but that was then...this is now.

This means there is a perfect opportunity for someone to step up and emerge as a leader. Hell, at this point I would take the water boys if thats who wants to step it up and light the fire under their asses.


Someone needs to close the divide between the the D and O.

Off the field? We have Farrior, Clark, Beg Ben, & Hines...but, what exactly needs to be said??? I can assure you that this losing streak is not a result of the lack of a rah rah speech.

Now...on the field? I agree with you. Although, there are a handful of other players that I would include with Harrison. But, our secondary has been pathetic & IF their light goes on....MAYBE we can sneak into the #6 spot. If the DBs continue to play in the dark we may be looking at a Top 10 draft pick.

Wow..what insight. If you knew the value of those players to the defense, you would know what I meant. Peezy was not a dominant player on that defense, but as Cowher said, he was clearly the leader in that locker room. That makes a difference in case you don't know that.

I know it's not a lack of rah rah stuff....but those men were leaders on the team and the team knew it.

I'm pulling like you are for the 6th spot...I'm just not that optimistic that it can / will happen. I'm not even sure they can beat Cleveland.

Unfortunately, I agree with you. If we can't beat Oakland in our yard, going TO our biggest rival Cleveland, on paper, should be a tougher game.

This game will tell us all we need to know - if our boys can find the onions to go to Cleveland and beat them senseless, as we should, then maybe we turn it around. If we go there and lay an egg....then we'll probably finish 6-10.
