i said earlier that i expect us to win 7-8 games this season. we killed ourselves when we paid troy and harrison all that money. we never really pay our old guys, we always cut them a year early instead of a year late and doing the opposite here really hurt us. another big problem i said earlier was wasting a 1st round pick on Hood and Hewyard. if your drafting a 3-4 end in round 1 you better be certain there game changers. we could of had a good OLB and ILB instead. we really hurt ourselves and our defense willl suffer for it

Traveling across the country 2 out of the first 3 weeks does not help either.

I dont care if Troy played the outcome of the game would be the same. Troys days as a superstar are over. His body is worn out, his legs are worn out , he is way to slow and gets beat deep all the time and all the other QB'S know it. I love Troy but I think its time for him to retire.

So keep it on topic and stop with the abusive name calling.

What kills me (especially when trash talking my friends who like the Ravens) is how we go from have the #1 defense in the NFL for 3 consecutive years and go to a 7th rate defense in only 3 games. Our defense looked like they had no heart. Now I understand 70% of our wins are either controversial or ugly but a win is a win right? Well I would have to disagree with myself this time because there is no power coming from our defense. The offense looks sloppy and loose and I think 3 games into the season we should have seen at least some improvement. We got beaten to the ball and for God's sake you have to "CATCH" a ball to make plays. It was frightful to see our defense getting pushed around.

I normally would agree that one player doesn't make a team but I think we have a team that sets itself around certain players. When Mend, Troy and Wallace were healthy and well the team perked up. They were pumped up and their energy focused around them. Like Baltimore with Lewis and Rice. When they are not in the defense is weak. However I believe we shouldn't be as weak as we have shown the last several games. I hope Tomlin has something up his sleeve because we won't beat the Ravens with the defense we have now. I mean really...we got pushed around and defeated by the Raiders. The worst NFL team to date. Steelers fans are hanging their heads lower today. Thanks for nothing Lebeau! You seem to be another Cam Cameron...just disappointing.

I think Tomlin should consider running some third option plays and switch it up a bit since our defense isn't worth the butter we paid them. We have an opportunity now that Suggs is out to have a better chance to defeat the Ravens so Tomlin better have a back up to his back up plan. I would be devastated to see a repeat of last year. I hope there are people from the Steelers who read this forum to see how us fans are disappointed with the last couple games. Maybe they will take some of our ideas or see they are hurting our chances of winning and do something to change.

Oh and did anyone else see that BullSh*t kick to win the game? New England got robbed. If that upright was a few inches taller it would have not been a field goal. Ravens didn't deserve to win.

the kick was good - even I could see that from my couch

but since this about the defense


Last 5 Raider drives -

TD
TD
TD
FG

That is pathetic.

my wife asked me this morning if I thought some of the Steelers vets on defense have lost their edge and are too "fat and happy." She said that if they expect to do anything they better come with a lot more fire, and especially on the road or she feels we aren't doing jack shit and they aren't the type of team to do anything as a wild card.

I reminded her of all the injuries and her response was "So what, do you think the 05', 08', and 10' team would have come out as flat as they have on the road? At this point, we might as well put the young guys in to see if they want it more."

Can't say I fully disagree with that idea. The sky isn't falling, injuries are a factor, but something else needs to change on this team, and like other posters have said - I just don't see the desire on the defensive side of the ball. Great teams make up for it. There is no excuse for yesterday's performance - one of the worst I've seen in a while.

Carter has no sacks........no pressure......Either they replace him with someone who can get sacks other than a limpy Harrison, I see no changes in this defense and the only way we win is if we get into a scoring contest.

I'm still thinking 10-6, we are still tough to beat at home and will go either 6-2 or 7-1 there. Then prolly go 3-5 on the road. Ever since tomlin took over this team hasn't been road warriors
