You could say Cincy doesn't "deserve" it either because they did everything possible to give Dallas that victory. Really, I hate "deserve the playoffs" posts, if you want to say we played like shit today, go for it, I'm right there with you but "don't deserve the playoffs" is silly when every team makes or misses the playoffs by the same rules.

I'm not a Tomlin sympathizer and I have questioned him many times this year (especially 3&2 against B'more), but is there a coach you would rather have coaching this team?

This has not been his best year as the Steelers HC, for some reason I feel like the relationship between him and Haley is not a good one.

Most of you might disagree, but I believe the relationship between HC and OC is very important and I don't think these two mesh with each other right now.

If a team gets into the playoffs - then, going strictly by the rules of the game...I mean, like it or not...that team deserves to be there.

We haven't been ruled out - with the Bengals and Ravens both losing, it kind of makes the loss more palatable - but holy hell, had they beaten the Chargers, it would have gone a long way towards strengthening their 6th seed position.

Yeah the Tomlin hate is starting to remind me of the Suisham hate last year. Yeah, he makes some boneheaded decisions sometimes, but I guarantee if anyone else not named Belichick, Coughlin, Payton, or McCarthy were coaching this team, you'd be even more fed up.

Yes we can still make it to the playoffs, especially with Cincy losing today, but the way we played was ridiculously disheartening. This is the stretch of the season where you're supposed to turn it into high gear and really start on a roll and build momentum into the playoffs. We did the opposite.

We were playing a desperate team with a horrible record that was definitely playing to keep their coach from losing his job. They had nothing left to lose - except for their price, and their coach. I don't care what our record is (or anyone else's): that makes a 4-10 a very dangerous team to play.

Combine with a rusty first half performance from Ben and you get the game that we got. Classic trap game.

Yep, and we have an uphill battle playing the Cowboys next week, too, who will be a team to be reckoned with given the events that happened with their team this week. The Steelers need to get their heads out of their butts and be prepared for Dallas.

I have had enough of this Steelers franchise, coaches and players.

I do blame Tomlin for quite a bit here. The buck stops with him. I'm tired of the same interviews "well we take responsibility for this game. It's our bad. Ummm you know the standard is the standard and we'll just have to go back to basics because ummm well the standard is the standard" etc.!

Fire Todd Haley, get rid of that worthless, overpaid spider monkey Wallace who couldn't even catch a cold, fire Mendenhall, fire Leftwich and possibly keep Batch. As much as I can't stand the guy he played a hell of a lot better then Big Ben.

Do we deserve the playoffs? I agree with the OP. It would be nice to be champs again but I dont see that happening with our team playing like a bunch of retards eating an icecreme cone. We do not deserve it the way they have been playing. You can win championships with turnover after turnover after turnover; or penalties; or fumbles; or dropped passes; or special teams lost yards etc.

I live Ben but I think he just needs to sit these out.

Would like some whine with your cheese? They played a bad game in a mediocre season. Believe it or not, every team in the league will have a disappointing. And if you think the buck stops at Haley or Tomlin, you're entirely deluded.

And, I dunno - this was Wallace's best game all season. He'll need to keep this up if he's sincerely interested in keeping his job here in Pittsburgh. The team may have lost, but he was one of the brighter spots (in that he's shown some definite improvement) - so why all of the hate? Wallace has been disappointing, but we've still got a few more games left for him to exorcise the demons.

How the fuck does Ben get back up to game speed by continuing to sit out?

Think, then post.
