He does against the good teams like the Giants and Ravens. Against crappy, sub-.500 teams though, not so much...

I think it's both because I blame the coach for not having his players motivated. Yes, you are gonna have bad days and not play well every single week during the regular season, but this is a recurring issue with the Steelers. They should've blown away a team like the Chargers today, especially at home.
My disappointment was eased a bit with the Bengal and Ravens losses, but this could've been the Steelers chance to gain on both of those teams and they blew it!! Nobody's fault but their own.

Exactly. The Giants were 7-7, a game behind the Cowboys and left for dead with 2 games remaining last season.

The fact of the matter is there are NO dominant teams in this league anymore. Any team can beat any other team on any given week.

Judging by the play of both offensive lines, if I had to guess one team was losing 3 starters, it would be us, not them.

Tomlin getting out-coached by Norv Turner, who doesn't deserve to be an NFL head coach (which is why he's getting fired), and led the biggest team of under-achievers in the last decade, of course, not to be outdone by us today.

5 games on the schedule after baltimore that we 'should win', of course, that made me nervous, because we 'should have' beaten oakland, tennessee, cleveland, and 'should have' won against KC easily, but did we?

Ever since Tomlin took over, does it seem like we always never win the easy ones? Who takes the blame for not getting the team ready in games we should win? That falls on the HC imo.

I can't even say I'm that disappointed about this game, as our team seems to be predictable in allowing these letdown games to happen against weaker competition. Who knows though, maybe if we manage to squeak into the playoffs, we don't have to worry about 'trap' games since they're all good teams?

but hey it could be worse, at least we didn't get swept by baltimore again.

Maybe this year we'll be the shittiest playoff team and won't have anyone to overlook, like Tebow and Denver.
