Did you watch the Pats last night?

THAT is how we should be playing -- foot on the gas and keep pounding and scoring until the refs tell us the game is over - PERIOD!
I've had it with "tactical" bullshit.
We have the QB and the receivers to put 50 points on the board and yet we struggle week in and week out and ESPECIALLY against shitty teams.

We should have STEAMROLLED San Diego and instead they steamrolled us!

WTF is up with THAT?!
Haven't you been paying attention? Steelers fans like to call teams that score a lot of points "classless," but they flip shit when the Steelers defense has to win a tight game because the offense didn't do enough.

Wait, the ONE thing we lack is:

Fresh bodies, waiting to get injured and not be able to contribute for any stretch of time, leading to yet again, a painfully short season.

The current scene at Steelers locker room:

We do lack consistency and leadership but I agree that HEALTH is this year, and has been the past few, our biggest issue. Need bodies to play NFL caliber games. We did beat the Ravens with some 3rd teamers but they are also banged up so it kind of proves the point. Let's hope we amke the payoffs and Ike and Adams come back, Troy stays healthy and we get Cortez back to play the Nickel DB!

yea, I know this is the professional level - but, there is a reason some are starters, and some are backups - there is in fact a drop off - now, I do believe it can be overcome - but not when you are consistently this banged up, all over the place.

He's an improvement over the frail and injury prone Sepulveda. For a young player, he's a pretty solid punter.

the punter isn't why we're losing the field position battle. Not even close.

Oh, it is a significant part of it. He gets out kicked by 15-20 yards every stinking exchange of possession.
