Default What's Wrong ?

What is wrong with the Steelers ????

They look like they don't have a clue?

Ben fumbles constantly, the defense can be walked all over consistently, Hines Ward isn't even a factor and is just running around doing nothing and the team is generally just a mess.

If they go 8-8, I'd be surprised the way they look to date. The Texans are handling thme their arz as I speak ???

Are they reaching the tipping point of age and just not very good anymore?

I miss my old Steelers, I can't even stand to watch this mess called the 2011 Steelers.

I'll tell you what's wrong, no heart, the Defense has no confidence in the Offense, that makes things worse. Fact of the matter is, the Steelers were counting on the "Lockout" so little time, they have the mentality that everyone should fear them because they were in the SB last year. Lets face it, Mendenhall runs like Franco did at the end of his career, the O-Line can't hold a block that alone open up a hole, when did you ever see the Steelers fall like flies??? When did you ever see a running back shred this defense like this???

Yea it looks like we're in for about 5 years or more to rebuild this mess. They got old quick and won't be seeing any playoffs or much of anything else for years.

Man I hate this because I LOVE this franchise so much, but it is what it is.

Cleveland and Baltimore got younger and the Steelers just walked into camp with big heads thinking they'd just be great again and what we're seeing is smelly stinking losers on the field.

The Steelers look and smell like the Bengals

Wow....go overboard much lol.

I don't know how long you've been a fan of the Steelers, but MOST fans by now understand that for every spectacular season, there's going to be lackluster ones.

Don't jump off the bridge too soon though. This franchise is solid and will put another spectacular team on the field and you'll being singing their praises in no time.

All part of the fun of being a sports fan!

Do you have a TV? If so, watch the game and tell me how bad this mess is !!!!

They're over the hill and have no defense, special teams or an offense.

It will take years to rebuild this mess. Man I hate this !!!

They do look lost, they don't seem to really care. The defense looks slow and I can't help but think some of those "big contract" players should have just been let go. They seem to be holding on to the past and not moving on...I am depressed, this season doesn't look good at all.

Spot on. D is getting absolutely shredded. Offense is beyond pathetic.

Man the left side of our defensive line is putrid. Smith and Woodley have been awful. Foster has been running through that side with ease.

The left side of our offensive line can is similar. Kemoeatu has returned to his fat lethargic ways and Essex is plain vomit.

^^^ I've been a Steeler fan for almost 20 yrs and I don't remember problems on offense and defense ignored to this extent. The o-line is GARBAGE and the defense cannot stop the run! Dick had better has a great speech in mind because the only players showing up on D is Troy and Taylor

You are not kidding, in twenty plus years I don't remember a team this bad. That is counting our down years as well, they are just playing so bad. The team plays 50+ million to three LB and a S; 100 million to a QB and now they are worried about Wallace? I would be worried about spending those millions on OL.
