Make no mistake AFC North sucks this year.

Looks like the Clowns might be able to win it.

And I was starting a thread : THE CLOWNS FOR CLOWNEY...

that run shows the serious lack of team speed on our team as well.


I completely agree, Hammer, but what kills me is four flailing arm tackles near the LOS that end up exposing our lack of speed on the back end. A complete team failure by the d. (lowercase "d" quite intentional)


I wasn't disagreeing with your assertion.
Tackling is a problem.
I think this D has been built on bone jarring hits for the last 2 decades, and now that those kind of hits have essentially been outlawed, the lack of fundamentally sound tackling techniques is exposed.

Steelers hanging around in this game.
We need a turn over from our defense, or big play from the special teams

Allen burned for 51 yards after having vikes in a hole due to their penalty

I'm gonna need new blood pressure medication this year. And maybe a new television after I smash this one...

Woodley is a punk. Ben looks as clueless as I have ever seen him. No, more. Cortez Allen couldn't bring down my grandma.

I have to admit, this is the first Steelers game that I can recall which I did not watch a single snap. Looking at the box score, it looks like the defense stunk up Wembley today.....

You realize if you include the preseason, this team is now 0-8? And of the 8 losses, we had a chance to win only two of them?

It's one thing to lose games, it's another to not even be competitive in order to have a chance to win them. We just lost to a team on a neutral field who couldn't even beat the Clowns on their home field.

From purely a talent standpoint, this might be the worst Steeler team since when Chuck Noll took over...... We've had deficiencies at certain positions. But Kevin Colbert's draft picks to bolster the weaknesses have been an absolute disaster. This team has gotten awful not because our coaches forgot how to coach, this team has gotten awful because our GM has been unable to improve the team, and even the positions that once were strengths have sprung leaks as well.

Some here might be screaming for Tomlin's head, but I lay the blame solely on GM Kevin Colbert.
