Flat! This team looked DEAD out of the gate. It's like they did not care and were only going through the motions. .

This team isn't smart enough to try and play cerebral football. They definitely need to come out with emotion and play with a sense of urgency - the offense in particular. The offense needs to make it their mission to succeed on the first three drives. They must come away with points and move the ball. And please, no more running on first down like all the time. Please BA use the pass to set up the run and not the other way around.

I am sorry, but you cannot say "cerebral" and "BA" even in the same paragraph, it goes against the laws of nature, ....

It is an old team and that creates problems coming off a Monday night game

If they come out flat against the Raiders after what happened last year this season is heading down the chute

These are the games left:

Oakland
@ Buffalo
@ Baltimore
Cincinnati
Jets
Carolina
@Cleveland

Worst case is 10-6 - my bet is 11-5 and a wildcard since I currently have no hope this team can win in Baltimore

If they come out flat and uninspired against the Raiders there will be alot lot lot of people looking for explanation.

If the offense continues playing this bad I don't see how the FO can justify keeping Arians around for another year.

Right now this team has a lot of injuries but they have to perform and change their game plan to fit those. These Raiders are a fiesty bunch, and I don't expect them to go down easy, but if we can't take care of business with them, I'm going to be convinced that we're just repeating the 09 season over again.

If this squad misses the playoffs 2 years in a row, there has to be some accountability.

Bruce has his toy back #7, so at the expense of the entire offense the run game will suffer b/c Bruce hates running. Sorry Mendy but you're done for the season, Bruce hates you.

They can't afford to play that BullSh*t zone against any team from now on. If you see Harrison in coverage more than rush the QB then you know the Steelers have given up on the season.

just for reference, arians is in the final year of his contract.

to our knowledge, there have been no talks of an extension. personally i hope the chargers flop and norv turner gets fired.

Don't worry, Tomlin is gonna "unleash hell" starting next Sunday against the Raiders. Remember how well it worked last year?
