Ha, I think Tomlin learned his lesson about making bold claims like that in front of video camera.

I still have nightmares of the hell off a leash.

THAT would be the best thing ever. I think Norv is a joke of a HC, but he is and would be an amazing OC. I would cry tears of joy if we picked him up as OC.

Transcribed from last night's press conference:

TOMLIN: Yeah... uh.... obviously, uh... we're dissappointed. But, uh, that doesn't change anything. We're about to unleash hell here in December.

REPORTER: Umm... Mike? You don know that December isn't for another couple weeks, right?

TOMLIN: Yeah, I know that. You, uh, think I'm stupid or something? We, uh, expect to get our asses pounded for two more games, but in December I think we'll be fine.

i was wondering if we were allowed to pass on First down? Is there some sort of fine for this? I swear I see other teams doing it. I mean before we are down by 20 points. Think the Raiders are just what the doctor ordered? Listen to this news fellas, since our 27th point in Cincy we've been outscored 60 to 26. This isn't the D's fault, our inept Offense can't sustain drives. We have a WR problem and an OLine problem. D will be worn our just like last year. Arians will be fired as the scape goat and then Tomlin wil have to take the heat. Enough LB's in the draft. We need stud O lineman. And get rid of Oldtown randel el.

Agreed, although I see it as highly unlikely. Rivers has become a beast under Norv

LOL, but we need to "get back to Steeler Football." We're only allowed to pass on third down, which we ALWAYS get to because our power running game is great at picking up a total of 4 yards on 1st and 2nd. We need to "pound the rock" so that other teams will know... and FEAR... our ability to go 3 & out for the first 10 drives in every game.

"Unleash hell" damn that was comedy!

One thing to remember is that our O line is pretty banged up. We have had a lot of injurys this year. I love how we were 4th in the league in rushing and now 9th if not higher now but remember we had a healthier O line at the begining of the season.

Has our Pass D ever been good? Bmac and Gay need a reality check and maybe need benched or something.

Our Pass D is built off pressure and if we cannot get pressure O's pick us apart.

Remember the random Polamalu blitz at the end of the game? Where was that all game. They looked like they had no game plan on D at all!

You can praise dick lebeau all you want but I think its time to get some fresh blood in there.

One thing I'm interested in seeing in this game is if our Dline can hold up the Run in the absence of Smith and Kiesel. Thus far we haven't gotten tested that much.
