Yes, it was that bad. Everyone just looked lost and slow, like they were playing a pick-up game. No intensity.

The Defense was not good, but read above line again,. and tell me just how much better could they possibly try to be.
Run Def was as good as it was gonna get, under those circumstances.

all I know is 7 -Turnovers is ridiculous, and the Steelers should embarassingly burn that fact tonite into their memory banks, especially Ben.
Ben's post-game comments sounded feebly childish, with silly little excuses, no kudos there.
Hey Ben, just admit it, they killed you, fair n' square. just move on.
Well, we'll all see soon, regular season has just started.
I like the optimism form you there , but 7 turnovers or not. Our D stunk, and right from the opening drive. Our Line was pushed around, our LB's were slow and out of position, our DB's (exception was Ike) were awful and out of position. I think it would have been worse for our D today with out turnovers, they wold have piled up more yardage on us, We didn't answer the bell today.
But it is only one game and I am certain we will bounce back.

I don't think the D looked old, it looked out of shape!! Lets face it, all this nonsense about "time-off" helping the older guys is BS. Yes our D averages right at 31 years old, but what I saw yesterday comes from no off season training and very little game playing time during the pre-season, not being old and slow. I knew this shit was going to happen! When you are a younger D you can jump back in the saddle a bit quicker. This D is going to be fine........ once it gets into game shape!!! I'm just glad we are facing Seattle and a sucky Indy team on this 7 game run leading up to the Pats. The Texans may well lay a whoopin' on us as well if we can't keep our D off the field like in this game. If we take this one game at a time, AND PLAY SMART Steelers football, I think we very well could be 5 - 2 going into the Pats/Ravens back to back games. If not 4 - 3 or 3 - 4 is a very real possibility. Just my 2 centavos!!! Nov 6th will be a MUCH different story... book it!!

Yeah, that misplay and fumble had nothing to do with Mendy. There was absolutely nothing he could do under those circumstances. That was all on the center and Ben.

As to the thread...I agree that a big part of the reason they were so bad was due to them being on the field (and a lot of short fields) too much. But even taking that into consideration, they were still pretty bad...right from the get go too.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
