One thing we lack: Accountability. And it should start with the coaching staff.

Sure, Tomlin talks about playing above the line, but how about coaching above the line? Lets set a high bar throughout the organization. It's not enough to acknowledge, acknowledge, acknowledge. At some point you need to perform - then demand the same from your players.

I see lots of lip service paid to accountability, but not much in the way of true accountability. Not when the same mistakes keep repeating from top to bottom.

"We acknowledge this, we embrace it, such is life in the NFL." Great attitude for helpless driftwood in the river.

When he gets the kick off, it seems as if the other guys are taking the punts almost near their own 40 - then as someone stated above - getting 10+ yard returns (or once again - our idiotic Special Teams commits some god forsaken penalty).
I've seen this way too many times this year. We don't need to worry about the punter "first" (which thats not even one of the top 3 or 4 reasons we keep getting buried)
It's not the #!*$%! punter thats the issue.
...and not just this season. Our special have been making average returners look great and holding on every return for six seasons straight. That's a trend.

LOL, so true. I didn't think he was all that bad this season for the most part, thank God. This team has quite a few issues and I know they're not all injury related either. The downward trend is troublesome, but I'm holding on to hope that a lot of them can be fixed for next season. I'm just gonna call this a bad year.

Nothing knee jerk, we're more than 3/4 through the reg season and the team can't beat a 4-8 outfit with lame-duck coach @ home, even though that team has never beaten the Steelers in Pittsburgh since time began.

Knee jerk my ass, we are maybe only 1 loss away from elimination.

a BETTER coach
let me ask you guys something if Bill B. was our coach ( I know he's not) do you think we'd be losing to all these mediocre teams almost everytime we play them? I don't think so so yea I'd say a better coach

5 out of his 15 seasons - yes, we could have lost to the bottom feeders.

Tomlin 07 - Playoffs
Tomlin 08 - Champs
Tomlin 09 - No Playoffs
Tomlin 10 - AFC Champs
Tomlin 11 - Playoffs
If we make playoffs again, that's 5 out of first six years, and the 4th season in a row of nothing but injuries to deal with

Where the fuck are Porters of this team? Keisel, Hampton and Harrison sure aren't doing their jobs if laziness is our problem.
