Did they not watch the KC game like you and I obviously did? Keep pressure coverage and a watchdog on Tebow and he can't do anything....

Lebeau's boss is Tomlin. We had the #1 defense in the NFL. Fire Tomlin...... yes seriously fire Tomlin.

I haven't see us lose a game like that in my life. Not in the playoffs. Ben should not have been in that game. Period.

It's time to fire him and find a replacement for Harrison. Harrison is old, slow, bum back and constantly taking stupid penalties.

They struggled to score points - at home - against Kansas City in a must win game. They are just NOT THAT GOOD. Yet today, they looked 10 times more prepared for the Steelers defense than the Steelers defense appeared to be prepared for them.

Again, I'm not typically an "off with their heads" guy, but this was a defensive melt down against a weak offense in a game that matters. The melt down against the Ravens at home when they let the Ravens drive 90 yards to win the game... the fact that he didn't adjust in San Francisco when it was obvious the 49ers had no
intention of throwing the ball more than 15 yards down field.... It's obvious someone on that coaching staff is not getting the job done. Regardless of the personnel...
I couldn't agree more. this has been the our problem all yr. Its time for Tomlin to clean house with his coordinators..Only problem is its not his choice......

I love Lebeau too but I agree that it is time to go.

There is no aggression on this defense and no character. They are just out there doing their job. It doesn't seem like anyone, Troy even, is trying to make a play.

And the OP brought up a good point, it took 10 years for Dick to figure out Brady. We run the same schemes week in, week out and only send a good blitz it seems once or twice a game. We try to create pressure by running the same 3 or 4 guys in and drop everyone else into coverage and we still can't stop a semi decent QB.

Lebeau has been living off of his legendary name the last few seasons...when he stop blitzing on a regular he lost his edge.

I can remember him being interviewed one time and was asked when is the best time to run a blitz.
His response was "right after the last one" when he stopped coaching that way he lost it.. he knows only one way to run a defense and he changed it

One can only wonder if the Rooney's would fire an hire all new coach's next year and the Steelers fall into an 80's funk, i wonder what youinz would blame then.
