Default Ryan Clark says the Steelers and it's fans are a spoiled bunch

Ryan Clark: Pittsburgh Steelers a 'spoiled bunch'
By Kareem Copeland
Around the League Writer
Published: Nov. 27, 2012 at 09:21 a.m. Updated: Nov. 27, 2012 at 09:51 a.m.

This is a problem most teams around the NFL would love to have.

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark had to respond to widespread panic after a 20-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The Steelers are 6-5 and would be the second wild card if the playoffs began today.

"You lose one game in Pittsburgh and the sky is falling, it's just part of the culture," Clark told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "It's part of winning six Super Bowls, it's part of being 12-4 three of the last four years. We're a spoiled bunch and overall we've become entitled. But you can't be entitled, you can't walk into places and just think because you're the Pittsburgh Steelers you're going to win.

"We need to execute and we haven't been executing. Do we need to win next week? Without a doubt. We could have needed to win next week had we won this game."

Execution becomes that much more important when you're down a Super Bowl-winning quarterback and a former defensive player of the year. Not sure you're allowed to panic when the team is playing without Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu and Antonio Brown. LaMarr Woodley, Mike Adams and Willie Colon all left Sunday's loss with injuries. The Steelers were down to Charlie Batch under center with Byron Leftwich out.

Sometimes injuries derail a season and the Steelers haven't been truly healthy all year long. The bottom line: the Steelers are not championship contenders without Roethlisberger.

I think we will be fine, but will see less of heath miller in the passing game. They left adams by himself at times but I don't think they're going to do the same with beachum.

He's right? Except I would replace the word spoiled with the word expectant. I expect that they don't commit 8 turnovers in 1 game, call me crazy. I expect that they don't commit silly penalties at crucial times in a game, again I know that's nuts but call it what you want. I also expect that they beat the bottom feeders of the league, and that has not happened this year! They SHOULD be ashamed of losing to Tennessee, Cleveland and Oakland. That's just embarrassing and undefensible. Even with a back-up QB. I'm a huge Clark guy so I tend to think that he is talking about everyone, not just fans. But, I am expectant. We are not the Chiefs, Clowns or Rams. We are the Pittsburgh Steelers and they should hold themselves to that standard. Been a fan my whole life and I have always thought they had a chance to win the SB every year! No matter what. So yeah, I am expectant and so should they be. I expect them to give 100%, nothing more. On a side note: It does not look like Wallace gives a s&^t, and that bothers me as an expectant fan.

Kind of explains how they've been struggling with bad teams...

Tomlin says Ben is 50/50




Remember that sacrificial goat scene in the T-Rex pen, on the first Jurrasic Park?
