Default When have we lost like this?

Ben and the O-line did their job..and we still lost.

I'm trying to think of a game were Ben and the O-line weren't the root cause of us losing. In the last 20 years how many losses do we have after leading with 2 minutes left?

Instead the defense and the coaching chokes.... wow

The Steelers get better every week but the Secondary is still very weak, 4 turnovers in 9 weeks.... Not gonna cut it, especially against the Ratbirds

Pick a game out of the 2009 season (KC is the first one that comes to mind for me).

Oakland, KC in OT


Secondary is weak and Troy P isn't making a lot of plays back there anymore.

yep, just substitute McCushion for Gay and Smith for Housh

except this time the Ravens went 92......man thats ffing pathetic, take a bow for that one Steelers

Thats on the verge of our 09 Offense vs Clevened suckage right there

I can only hope they don't let this cost them more games, we can't afford to just sulk around for another month

We need to get back to kicking ass right away

i never would have thought our oline would play so well and we still would lose.. i think that was the best game the oline has played against the Ravens since the days of Hartings, Faneca, and company.

I don't think the secondary is weak, it just stopped Brady and has been number 1 for a few weeks now. The play calling on defense was horrible and it relied on getting pressure on Flacco which we did not do. The secondary is "good enough" and we've one games, even against passing teams like NE, but when we get zero pressure, Polamalu makes zero plays, and the same horrible defensive coverage's are called, they aren't good enough to still get it done.

And after 4 games - people were thinking the sky was falling because of the OLine woes.

guys, its a long season. We have a veteran team that knows how to win - let's keep our faith in them a little longer. Its not blind faith (like a bengals fan would be) but faith in their experience and track record.
