Sometimes you just have to close out the game. Ben didn't get it done.

exactly. In order - here our mine:

1. special teams - PLEASE. Somebody, Tomlin, make changes to this part of the team this offseason. Its so bad its embarrassing. Suisham and Butler excluded.

2. defense - actually worse than the offense

3. offense - no running game at all.

I hate to say, but haleys offense sucks. Too predictable and he doesn't seem to adjust. So you guys still like Tomlin move to bench mendy. We've been out coached all year. No running game and this genius benches the only talent we have as a running back. Oh well

There's no way that the defense is worse than the offense. Not by a long shot. Yes they suck at turnovers, but they have carried way more of the load than the offense.

The offense hasn't played complimentary football at all. They've blown field position, key situations, struggle to score, turn the ball over countless times and fail to finish games.

I would rank them as follows in order of suckage:

1. Offense
2. Special teams
3. Defense.

Ben is also falling back into the habit of locking onto one route. Earlier in the year, he would cycle through his reads and deliver.

Somebody really doesn't like Ben. Perhaps his line should block and his WRs should catch the balls. Nah, that makes too much sense. BOOOOOO! BEN SUCKS! BOOOOOO!

When they were set up to go down and win the game at the end, Ben didnt get it done cuz he was running for his life on back to back sacks that killed any chance of closing out the game.

Maybe if AB holds onto the ball on that punt return the Steelers have a chance to close out.

Memo to Yinzer nation - you need to get over your hatred of QBs.
