Could be worse.

We could still have Arians and be 9-4.

Who'd want that, right?

I am also fed up of seeing them struggle and lose against lesser opponents. It's understandable if it occurs every once in awhile but what is occurring with this club has gone for some time now.
Thank you. I respect what the Pats do but as I said in the original post, I think the Steelers formula is better when it comes to crunch time

Yeah but when you consistently put 40 or 50 points on the board, there really IS no "crunch time" is there?

Playoffs / Super Bowl = crunch time

Well they've been to Five Super Bowls in 11 years and were a play or two away from winning all of them, so I'd say they're pretty good in crunch time.

I'll keep my Steelers too, but the guy makes a valid point. I think he got you there.

They may have choked in the playoffs before last year, but at least they put themselves in good position come playoff time.

It's getting pretty damn close to crunch time now and I still see nothing resembling an "A" game from the Steelers. They've limped along all year long showing little improvement save for the adjustments Lebeau made to save the season.
