I did not mean it that way...Or anything directed at you or any posters who disagreed.

I kinda expected the Steelers to lay an egg.

Steelers teams have not handled adversity very well over the past few years

Facing the Eagles the wheels can come off the track pretty quick.

Trust me I checked my ego at the door 10 years ago...I just catch so much shit when I am wrong. I am wrong from time to time. Tonight I wish I was wrong

No pass rush or pressure
Poor tackling
Lack of receiver talent
Lack of edge blocking talent
Poor offensive plan/concepts about what they want to do
Sucked all the life out of the team- attacking offense and defense of the Super Bowl era is now as boring as any team in the nfl.

So many of your points in this thread are spot on, FC, but for me these are the most unsettling.
I would add to what I bolded that any questions about the intelligence of this team are not limited to what happens on the field.
...obviously...

The mental breakdowns, character concerns, and falling way short in heart or pride regardless of talent are like a recurring nightmare with this team, and the most glaring issue for me is the complete lack of discipline.
...obviously...

What's clearly absent is any standard for these grown-ass men to look to as an example of how not to act like spoiled, selfish, entitled brats.
...obviously...

It's not on the horizon, either. This team has looked like a bunch of gutless, heartless kids at the worst possible times for a few years now...looking back, it really started to deteriorate about halftime of the last superbowl loss, and has steadily gotten worse.
...obviously...

So, who should be held accountable for the general lack of maturity and discipline permeating the entire team?
...umm...do I really need to say it? :?

gee, ya think?
They're also coached by dumb, soft HCs, especially when it becomes a pattern...

He was actually stupid enough to say in his post game presser:
Quote:
what happened yesterday had nothing to do with our performance tonight

The fool just doesn't get it, and I am done with buying into his pseudo-intelligent shyster drivel.

Mark it down: Mike Tomlin will not coach another championship team in Pittsburgh.
...tragic, considering this will be Ben's swansong as well... :cry:

I think Bell and Blount will be fine...I think both run like bulls in a china shop.

I question players surrounding them.

I am not saying the Steelers do not have tough players. I am saying players have plenty to prove

Players like

Beachum
Pouncey
Gilbert
Wheaton
Bryant
Shazier
Tuitt
Heyward
Timmons(Playing the buck)
Jones
Mitchell

If I am going to buy in....I have to be sold....I am not sold.

I know some of you are all in....I say right on. I am not.

Toughness is not only physical...Its mental.

Playing the right gap
Taking on the block with the correct shoulder
Not chasing the ball

Its moving your feet and sticking with blocks
Its playing to the echo of the whistle.

Its form tackling and making plays.


Prophetic.

I am not sold either. I am not bought in. I despise the Browns, and an upset at Heinz in Week 1 wouldn't surprise me in the least right now, Manziel or Hoyer.

I'm not Chicken Little. More like Debbie Downer. I'm saying more of the same, unfortunately.

Maybe it won't be.

Maybe now people might start thinking that just because Ben says he wants to retire a Steeler doesn't mean he actually WILL retire a Steeler?

My guess is Haley wanted him for that one play that they run.

After that - he's got no idea what to do with him.

if this season is another 8-8 or even worse, the Rooneys may be faced with a very hard choice at the end of 2014...
Mikey T or Ben R?

If the choice were mine, it couldn't be easier...
