Comon. I don't want to make excuses, but we lost because the Broncos starters were an overtime win better than our 2nd string. Injuries did this team in. We played most of that game without Pouncey, Mendy, Starks, and a gimpy Ben on offense and Smith, Hampton, Kiesel, Clark, and Woodley on defense.
You can't really make the excuse because the Packers won a Super Bowl with a lot of injuries last year, but the fact is our backups in those spots weren't good enough to win a playoff game. It's not really a crime.

I'm not sure why we were such a big favorite to win on the road in this game anyway. We haven't looked good in over a month, since the injuries started mounting. Denver was a division winner playoff team and it's a tough place to play on the road. If this had been a regular season game, We may have been favored by a point or 2. Since it's a playoff game, all the experts just figured we'd come out and play like the STEELERS and our backups couldn't do it. The other guys get paid and are pros also. They made plays. Game over.

Thanks Ben, and thanks Arians ........ for another idiotic play calling at the end. I bet Redman would have gotten the 10 yds we needed to be in FG range.
as far as "the sacks" go.......i ask this......those defenders were on him in 2 seconds. HOW the hell.....are you in a passing situation with an opposing defense in "prevent" mode and only rush 3 guys, yes that right...3 guys....how the hell are they all over the QB within seconds? Thats unheard of. Where the F were our blockers?????????

some of the main reasons we lost :

1. Injuries, obviously......and Ryan Clark being out hurt us really bad...no one's talking about that much
2. Surprisingly bad coaching
3. A non-pumped up, psyched, ready to play team. Looked like they were just standing around out there chillin'.
4. NO pass rush. Yep. Thats zero. Really unbelieveable. Tebow had ALL DAY and more back there.
5. Harrison and Woodley missing-in-action
6. Poor O-line blocking (no surprise there, though). They were all over Ben on those last drives in prevent mode. Wow.
7. Defense not creating turnovers again. Are guys aren't even looking for INT's, let alone trying to catch them. We also don't try and strip balls consistently aside from Polomalu.
8. Arians playcalling. Its SO predictable that now even the announcers are calling our plays in advance.
9. Fancy, confusing, exotic sets and blitzes are no more. What happened to that?

All major contributing factors.

Why the hell was Mundy up on the line of scrimmage at the snap of the ball?

Why didn't Troy chase him down? He was right there

Biggest reason was Denver is the better TEAM, on top of that the game should not have even come down to what it did should it? The blown call (whistle) on the fumble/lateral resulted in a Steelers TD instead of a Steelers turnover in scoring position for Denver.. min 10 point swing? McGahee fumble? Outside of the 1st Q alone Steelers were outplayed by the better team who were dealing with the same amount of significant injuries. Enough with all the excuses, the best team won. The offense needs some upgrades this off season.

actually..i completely disagree with that.
Putting my Steelers hat aside, we are the better team....and by a cold country mile.

We lost because of a lackluster effort, injuries, and not pressuring the QB whasoever or creating turnovers. Not to mention Denver had a career day playing WAY over their head. Combine all that and Denver wins.
Thats why people around these parts are so up-in-arms angry. The better team lost the game (and deservedly so..)
