Default 1998

The mods don't like this. I've said it before. I don't need to say it again. This is 1998 again. Total melt down.

Except that this time we have a $100M franchise quarterback that can't find an open receiver.

I've rooted for this team for nearly 50 years. This HC, OC, and QB are pathetic. They have wasted opportunities and talent like I've never seen.

The 1-11, now 2-11 stains owned us this evening. I put that squarely on the HC.

every team has bad years. Tomlin and Ben are great and it's not Roethlisbergers fault.

You're right. Ben sucks so bad. They would be so much better if he wasn't the QB. Because he's obviously the biggest problem with the team.

Very interesting comparison to 1998.

We won a huge game against the Jaguars at Three Rivers that year to go 7-4...we didn't win another game that year.

We won a huge game against Denver this year...we won't win another game this year.

The comparison is very valid.

The result after that season was the firing of OC Ray Sherman. What will be the fate of Arians?

he hardly had a part to play with 2005, no doubt he's an awesome qb, but maybe not top 5.

Ben can't win the game by himself. This is an offensive problem that involves Ben...not because of Ben.

You can't be serious. In a normal year, Ben is top 5. He's not playing like a top 5 QB this season.

Then like myself i waited 25 years for a franchise QB and we finally got one. This is the exact reason bradshaw hated steeeler fans for many years afterhe hung up the cleats. To be honest with you i think the mcnutty case has gotten been by the short hairs. I dont think he would admit it, but i think it is wearing on him. Ben was Golden in the last 2 to 4 minutes of a game last year. For the life of me the defense i cant explain why we cant tackle anyone anymore. and we do not take advantage of teams when they are 3 and long as we did in the past. Just maybe we are old and thin in areas we cant afford to be. Keisel got hurt i do not know if he ever went back in. If anyone says Asmith isnt a import part of our D just take a look at the run yards tonight. The steelers d got steam rolled
