do the Steelers really make adjustments like sit Smith and sit Scott and get rid of the bubble screen? if Mendy keeps dancing around do they make a change? Do they do something different at the goal line so maybe we can score from the 2 yard line?

2 years ago the special teams sucked and gave up a record number of run backs. Tomlin kept saying there were going to be changes but nothing happend and week after week and the run backs kept happening.

Tomlin and the coaching staff seem to be thick headed and refuse to adapt when things need to change

We are seeing the culmination of 3 or 4 years of neglecting O-line needs. A win is a win - but at some point, Ben is going to see a lot of ghosts and is going to force the issue more often than not to try and make up for it.

I'm hoping we are going to see the defense continue to improve again and build on its play versus the Colts. Maybe Schaub not having a lot of experience against them can be the deciding factor!

Here's to it baby!

tomlins special teams have been nothing short of spectacular (relatively speaking) since he fired ligashitthebedsky, and replaced him with spencer.

i keep hearing this. yet we have spent a 1st, 2nd and 3rd round pick on o-line in the past 3 years. that doesnt inlude later rounders such as tony hills et al. plus udfa's such as foster and legursky who made the team.

say they suck at scouting. thats much closer to the truth, but to say they have neglected the position isnt.

Tomlin is indeed slow to swing his axe, partly as a result of him being known as somewhat of a "player's coach", one of the guys, and so on. I think his dedication to his guys helps with chemistry, but not always with accountability.

The bubble screen is fine as long as they don't throw it to Hines Ward. I don't know why they think he's going to get any YAC. He's slow as molasses.

was anyone else envious of the Redskins TD last night. I formation, play action fake to FB and then Hightower wide open in the flat for a walk in.I can't remember the Steelers scoring a short yardage TD that easily. Obvious problem, we haven't used an I formation since John Kuhn.

Sorry for those who aren't in the know. Inside joke.
