They were beaten at home which ended their winning streak with a third string, 38 year old quarterback. That, on top of their injuries, is a pretty good way to fuck a season up.

This teams problem is very, very simple: inconsistency.
and inconsistency is a result of lack of discipline. Lack of discipline is a lack of focus. Lack of focus is a lack of determination. Lack of determination is a lack of desire. Lack of desire is a plateful of complacency.

Does that sum it up?

Steelers Offense starts out slow, steelers defense holds it's own. Steelers offense still sputtering. Defense holds it's own and gives up a FG. Steelers TO (fumble), Opponent scores TD after tired Defense gives up a TD. Steelers down 10-0 so now the Offense finally starts to play. Offense scores a TD, Defense holds. Offense gets into FG position, Suisham makes FG. Tied at Halftime. Steelers D holds after halftime Kickoff, Offense 3 and out, Steelers defense holds. Either a ST TO or Ben throws an interception. Tired defense gives up TD. Offense, 3 and out. Defense holds yet again. Punt returned for a TD by the Steelers, wait there's a flag, block in the back. Offense down 7 wakes up again and gets a TD, tie game. Steelers KO and ST's gives up a big return. Defense holds opponent to a FG. Steelers up 4 with two minutes left to play. Opponent kicks off to the Steelers, Rainey takes it 3-yards deep in the endzone and gets hit at the 17yd line and fumbles. Opponent takes over and scores game-winning TD.
Stop me if you've heard this before.
Tomlin press conference: "We didn't make enough significant plays and they did. They made more splash plays than we did" and "We take ownership of what we put on tape" and the ever popular "The Standard is the Standard"

I wish you could tweet that many characters, I would copy > tweet the entire offense this paragraph.

This would be the best hashtag ever. We could probably get it to trend.

You forgot injuries. Usually in the first series on either side. First quarter at the latest.

Thanks for all the comments! In light of the past few games I figured I would sum up what most in Steeler Nation are thinking, I'm glad we can laugh about it! Let's hope this is not actually how the Cinci game will turn out but if it is we won't be surprised.

I am very much convinced that they are lacking discipline. Young money has been full of young mistakes. I hope they learn from all this.

there's a lot of talent on the team, and they are capable of beating anyone, they just need to fix some issues in the offseason, mainly the mental mistakes. this offense needs a running game, and quick, or they will continue to be 1 dimensional and not live up to their potential
This. I was just thinking about it as well.

Not only have we lost to bad teams, we really have not beaten anybody playing good football. This team might actually be worse than it appears and that is a scary thought.
