Default Why can't we do that?

Don't get me wrong, I DO NOT want us to be "like" the Bengals, but right now they are up 28 to 6 vs the Chiefs AT ARROWHEAD! We barely beat them at home. Now I know some here will laugh and say things like "who cares, we win in the playoffs", or "we win 12 games a year, who cares how", etc., but it's embarrassing to see the Bengals whoop them in their house when they almost beat us in ours. More importantly it's not a characteristic of a good team, good teams may not blow every bad team out, but they don't make "nail biter" games out of them either. I'm optimistic today and I'm not trying to bitch....just wanting to hear some of your guys ideas on why we are so terribly inconsistent?

the honest answer is the cheifs tont care any more or less about beating the bungs than just about any other (non-divisional)team they face on their schedule.

EVERY team circles the steelers on their calendar as soon as the schedule comes out ESPECIALLY if its primetime/nationally televised game.

Prime example of the "few" that I mentioned and the answers they would give. Of course the Bengals aren't a great team, as I clearly implied, and that's what raises the question. If a team like the Bengals can own KC in KC then we shouldn't be worried in the 4th quarter vs KC in our house. As for the everybody circling the Steelers on the schedule thing, I doubt that. Maybe after we win a SB, but why would KC, PHI, NYG, etc. care any more about beating us then they do any other good team. I think the problem is more that we (the Steelers) circle games on the schedule and overlook the scrubs, not that the scrubs circle us.

I don't know about that. I think it has to do with our style of play. We don't showboat, we take a knee and just tend to get a lead, play it safe punt the ball, pin then inside the 20, and repeat until the clock says 00:00? thats the best answer you are going to get.

Follow the money, ladies and gentlemen, and use your little gray cells. The nfl doesn't like blowouts. The tv stations don't like like blowouts. Most importantly the advertisers, who write the paychecks for all concerned, hate blowouts because viewership goes down during one, except for the fans of the team doing the blowing out. That means that fewer people will be watching those high priced commercials that the advertisers are paying for. So, the advertisers don't get the return on investment on those kinda games. You think that they don't mention that to the nfl owners and Goodell?

Have you not watched the last 10 years of Pittsburgh ball? NONE of our wins are pretty and very rarely do we blow anyone out. But we are a team that pulls wins out usually at the last second. That's our history. That's why I get tickets to every game I can because you get your monies worth out of the game.
