This. It's a pattern now and I don't know how you break it, mainly because I don't know what the source is.

Are the coaches scaling back game plans against perceived weaker opponents, and is this rubbing off on the players, who think "we got this one"?

Or are the coaches preparing the same and the players are not mature enough to realize you need the same effort every week?

If the latter, can the coaches not see this during practice?

with the new cba, the reduced and lighter practices are really nothing more than slightly amped up glorified walk throughs, which may be fine for the finesse teams but hurts teams like the steelers why rely on their physicality.

the reduced practices were predicted to hurt teams like the steelers specifically as early as the preseason last year.

theyve paid in injuries and a lack of focus vs lesser opponents.

at a certain point the players have to be self motivated, and cant rely on the coaches to "fire them up".

Dallas is in a must win situation, so we have to bring our A game to their house. Luckily, their QB is a known choker and they don't play great at home.

Ben should be Sharp to start the game since he did get a full 4 quarters of play in this past Sunday. So we should come out guns a blazing, slam the ball down their throat, toss the ball around and move the chains, wear out their defense...and OUR Defense better get its fcking head out of its ass and generate some fucking splash plays early on to take the crowd out of it.

Want to be fired up? Just show the team the entire SB XXX game, over and over again and watch as Neil chokes away the great defensive effort and fanstastic effor of Morris in that game against a 2 time Champion. If watching that disgusting display of choking doesn't fire you up to Beat the Cowboys, then nothing will.

then right before kickoff, show the two Terry wins over Staurbach to remind the team what they are. They are the PITTSBURGH STEELERS. 6 Time Champions. Not some group of schlubs that play down to competition like a-holes.

If that's true, then maybe it's time the Steelers adjust. They certainly have the pieces to be a finesse team.

It's no mystery

Ditka said it best, "With Ben back they had that game checked off as a win"

this. no desire at all. When they went 3 and out time after time, and then the screen debacle in the end zone - I literally saw NO ONE pissed off. Not even the defense. That doesn't mean they weren't or let people have it behind closed doors. But seriously - no outward expression of emotion?!?!?!?!!

The Cowboys are just like us.

When their heads are in the game, they're a formidable team. But if that focus isn't there, they're average at best.

So if it's "Good Ben / "Bad Romo" next week, we should win in a laugher.

But if it's "Bad Ben" / "Good Romo" or even "Bad Ben" / "Bad Romo" , it's anyone's guess.

Mendy must really be in the doghouse


Jonathan Dwyer to start again for Steelers

Tomlin says that there won't be any changes in the running backs rotation. So Jonathan Dwyer should start again.
