My instincts say that Worlids is going to become very important around here. You're right. Colbert wasn't at fault for the loss, he wouldnt' have expected Gay and McFadden to whiff plays like they did.
You just came up with 6 or 7 reasons but failed to mention the biggest one ? Ben played terrible the entire game. He lost this game. He hasnt carried this team one time all year. He was a average QB all year...christ Sam Bradford had more Td's then Ben this year, and the Rams suck. The defense played ballz out all year and Ben cant get it done in one game. Total failure by Ben.

Only one interception was Ben's fault.

Face it, the Steelers played a very good, young and deteremined Packers team.
Let's give credit where due, the Packers beat the Steelers. And they are world champs. They were very hungry.
Quit looking for excuses why or who to blame for Steeler's lost.

I don't think they would have even made it to the Super Bowl if he hadn't brought back McFadden. Sure maybe he wasn't the greatest down the stretch (he was playing through injuries for quite some time), but he still played fairly solid all year long, as a whole. He was one of the main reasons they won that first game against ATL, McFadden was complete SHUT DOWN against Roddy White all game long. If anything, they need more depth at that position. Anthony Madison is nowhere close to being a nickel/dime CB.

I'm not talking about just INT's. His game was terrible. High and low throws all game. GB's secondary was hurting in the 2nd half and still he couldnt move the ball on them. All year he played like this its not surprise to me now that he had the game he did. Look at his play in the Jets game. Piss poor. 100+ Qb ? Come on. His play was below average all year. Only decent team he beat was Baltimore and that was a struggle. He had 3 good games all year, Oak,ClvD,and Panthers. He was struggling all year. I really think he is regressing more than anything. He had all day to throw in the Super Bowl and his passing was pathetic.

This isn't something I am just saying in hindsight. I have said since the 2006 draft
that they are really making errors in rounds 2-5 in most drafts. Don't forget the drafted
Bruce Davis in the 3rd when we were plenty fine at that position. You say we F'd up
not using more picks on CB and I agree. But I say OL was the most ignored position
in the draft, and although we have a magician at QB to make a bad OL seem not as
bad, our OL has been a thorn in our side, even though we won another ring in 2008 with
it and almost won another this year. Yes, hindsight is 20-20 but I voiced their errors after
every draft - being right the majority of the time.

2010 1 Maurkice Pouncey C Florida - great pick not complaints
2 Jason Worilds LB Virginia Tech - he better replace Woodley or its a dumb pick
3 Emmanuel Sanders WR Southern Methodist - I didn't like pick but it might have been solid
4 Thaddeus Gibson LB Ohio State - not even on team. Would have preferred OL or DB
5 Chris Scott G Tennessee - made team and played. Not bad
5 Crezdon Butler DB Clemson - where did this kid go? We were told he rocked in camp
7 Stevenson Sylvester LB Utah - Looks like a great pick
8 Jonathan Dwyer RB Georgia Tech - Love this pick. Still might develop. I think he will.
9 Antonio Brown WR Central Michigan - Seems good
12 Doug Worthington DE Ohio State

2009 1 Evander Hood DT Missouri - no complaints from me.
3 Kraig Urbik T Wisconsin - Bust
3 Mike Wallace WR Mississippi - Awesome pick
4 Keenan Lewis DB Oregon State - he sucks
5 Joe Burnett DB Central Florida - sucks
5 169 Frank Summers RB UNLV - Took a shot, didn't work out
6 32 205 Ra'Shon Harris DT Oregon
7 17 226 A.Q. Shipley C Penn State
7 David Johnson TE Arkansas State - Not bad for 7th.

2008 1 Rashard Mendenhall RB Illinois - Still is just shy of a really good player. OK, not great.
2 Limas Sweed WR Texas - big swing and miss.
3 Bruce Davis LB UCLA - Total screw up, horrid pick
4 Tony Hills T Texas - Wish he panned out. Hasn't.
5 Dennis Dixon QB Oregon - Good gamble. Maybe didn't hit
6 Mike Humpal LB Iowa - shit
7 Ryan Mundy DB West Virginia - sucks

2007 1 Lawrence Timmons LB Florida State - Not bad
2 LaMarr Woodley DE Michigan- Great
3 Matt Spaeth TE Minnesota - he sucks. OL would have been a better pick for sure
4 Daniel Sepulveda P Baylor Really? OL or CB would have been the better pick
4 Ryan McBean DE Oklahoma State
5 Cameron Stephenson G Rutgers
7 William Gay DB Louisville
7 Dallas Baker WR Florida

2006 1 1 25 25 Santonio Holmes WR Ohio State
2 Anthony Smith DB Syracuse - seemed like a huge pick. Dude is just too dumb
3 Willie Reid WR Florida State - crap
4 Willie Colon G Hofstra - OK
4 Orien Harris DT Miami (FL)
5 Omar Jacobs QB Bowling Green
5 Charles Davis TE Purdue
6 Marvin Philip C California

All that being said, if Mendy holds on to the Fing ball, we probably win.
And if we had Holmes on the field, we also win. BB wasn't great, but he
played well enough for us to win. How many games did he pull out
that had any other QB been back there, we lose? Happens all the time.

this is just flat out wrong and not even worth explaining why to somebody who believes its actually true.
