Im sorry, and please feel free to flame me if you like but honestly at this point We absolutely are a complete and total nightmare. We can't throw, we cant run with any consistency, our special teams are ridiculously bad, our OL can't block anyone, our QB shouldn't have even played and the fact that he did and threw 4 interceptions is just pathetic, and our defense has too many penalties !!

We just simply cannot put together a series of good plays without shooting ourselves in the foot. We have stupid penalites, we're terrible in the red zone, we gives games away. We cannot win in this league playing like we are this year, and the schedule isn't getting any easier.

We just blew 1st and goal inside the 5 yd line. 4 chances to get a TD and we go backwards. Game, set, match to the Raiders.

This team absolutely cannot get out of its own way !

#1 BC went from his hurry up offense to a power game soon as we got to the goal. Never should of done that. We don't have a power game and you don't punch it in from there with "the wind knocks me over" Parker. What the hell we bother to waste money signing Davenport for if we don't use him there.

#2 Another stupid penalty

#3 Should have went play action on the first 2 tries

My first comment is part of what is wrong with this team. Cowher is stuck on last year but doesn't have the players to do what we did last year.

Even Davenport got lost 4 yds down there, our OL just doesnt know how to block period.

You can't expect Najeh to come in with the game on the line, being "cold" from sitting all day, and expect a miracle ! When will BC realize this is anybody's guess at this point !

Yea I don't knock Willie at all. Davenport got stuffed on that 3rd and short. He sure didn't have any burst or power at all. Its just a mess right now.

That had nothing to do with his burst or power. He couldn't even get started before he was hit 4 yds in the backfield. That's the line on that play.
I know what you are saying TG but Davenport should be used more throughout the game.

I agree with you SA.. Davenport should be used more, because you can't expect a cold player to come in and make plays whether the OL is blocking or not. He's got be in some sort of a rythmn to be effective. Sorry if I mislead you on my thoughts..but you know Im as pissed off as you are now.

It falls on the shoulders of Cowher and the coaching staff for not using him more as much as it falls on the players in general for not performing.

Davenport was slow in hitting that hole. Oh sorry to disagree with the head of SteelerAddicts. Watch the film again. Davenport is slow and soft. Sure you knock Willie Parker and do not fault the Oline. But its the Oline's fault for Davenport being stuffed. If Davenport was this great RB then why did the Pacekers cut him.

No running back is great without a good OL to help them. Willie, Najeh, Verron, Kreider, it doesnt matter who is carrying the ball because our OL can't block.

No kidding Top Gun. Thanks for pointing that out. Just saying the good old head man at Steelers Addicts takes a shot at Willie Parker. Then blames the Oline for Davenport short comings. Again answer me if Davenport was so good then why did the Packers cut him? Davenport is a good back but he isn't the typical power back the Steelers like to use. He is a big back but doesn't always plays like one. He was soft with Green Bay. Then why should it change now. Just my two :2cents:. If you want to ban me go ahead and ban me.

What the hell is that about? I could care less if you disagree with me whether I own the site or not!
I knock Parker because he has shown all year he can't pick up the short yds when we need them. He is too small to do it all the time. Sorry, but I'm not a fan of Parker being the RB to carry this team like a lot of people. I like him as a change of pace back but not to carry the ball 250-300 times.
Davenport is averaging 5.1yds a carry and has the longest run on the Steelers. Not too mention he has done well returning the ball too. They need to get him in so he can get into the flow of the game. Maybe you should go back and look at some film too.
The Packers cut him because he was injured last year and they have Green.

You keep calling me out as like that and we will have a problem. Cut the crap. Like I said before I could care less that you disagree with me. You have your opinion and I have mine. I blamed the o-line for that one play we were talking about with Davenport so get over it. The 0-line has done it to Willie too just as Willie has had his *** knocked backwards as many times as he has gone forward and it had nothing to do with the line.

Willie Parker has proven himself more then all great Najeh Davenport. Dookie is soft thats one of the reasons he is always injured. He has proven he can't carry slight load witht he Packers.

Again your faulting Parker and finding no blame with Oline. But then you blame the Oline for Davenports short comings. The Steelers set themselves up for this by putting their faith in Duce Staley before training camp started. Then when Duce proved to be done. They were stuck with the likes of Davenport. You act like he is Jim Brown. Davenport isn't going to save the running game at all.

No not really just saying Dookie Davenport is a solid player but he isn't the answer either for the short yardage role. The Steelers brass fumbled the ball by keeping faith in Duce Staley before training camp. When Duce proved to be done. The Steelers were stuck with the likes of Dookie on the free agent wire.

It all comes down to this whole offense being inept in every facet. Willie, Najeh, the OL, the WR's, Qb and TE are all to blame. You can't be successul without every part working in unison and being together.

Najeh could be great but we don't use him enough. The OL could be great if they learned how to block, Willie could be great if held onto the ball and didn't get countless no yard gains and then mix it up with a big long run to pad the stats...at this point everyone sucks and they are all to blame.

Sorry but I don't think Najeh could be a great big back. He is a big back but he doesn't play as big as his size. The Steelers need to find that true typical power back for the short yardage role. Your right though the Oline is a mess. Did you know ESPN scouts rated the Steelers Oline as the best in the NFL. What were they smoking?

BlitzburghRockCity
10-29-2006, 08:35 PM
Anybody that rated us the best at anything except beating ourselves and underachieving is smoking something seriously good and better pass the bong to the rest of us....

Im not sold that Najeh can't be great until we feed him the ball on a regular basis with a good OL and then see how he does...but this year that's not going to happen as far as I can tell.

Why do you keep saying things I never said? I never said Davenport was great. He can help this team if they would use him yes. And I don't care what he did with the Packers. He is here now and has played well and we should be using him more.
I was talking about one play with the o-line and Davenport while talking about short yardage plays with Parker in general. All Parker has shown is he can break a run from time to time and fumble the ball but you act like he is Barry Sanders.

The problem on that drive was that normally in that situation, we would just have Ben run it in for the touchdown, but you can't do that there because, coming off another concussion, you can't take the risk of Ben going in and getting his head knocked off. So, without our main goal line play, we were stuck with trying to get Willie and Najeh to run it in, and neither of them could. I'm not saying Willie sucks, and I'm not saying he's great. I'm not saying Najeh sucks, and I'm not saying he's great either. The fact is, neither of them is Jerome Bettis, and while I think they can both be successful RBs for the Steelers, neither of them has really been able to show anything in short yardage situations. And yeah, it certainly didn't help that our O-line was getting outmuscled by the freakin Raiders.

I can't disagree with a single thing TG said in the initial post. The only thing I can add is that it's a damn shame.
What was Cowher thinking keeping Ben in??? The guy had no business playing in this game: reading plays off his wristband? running around like a girl more afraid of getting hit than finding someone open? 4 interceptions? Good lord.
Back to the Pop Warner leagues.
Maybe next year will be better.

I can't disagree with youat all...except he always reads plays from his wristband. Ben looked horrible and showed that he should not have been playing. Our problems go deeper than offense thoughl. Our ST is absolutely horrible, our D isn't playing great and they are definately not disciplined (2 PF back to back giving the Raiders O 30 undeserved yrds.) This entire year is sick. And I hate to say it..but that was probably the end of our seasonl. Anyone that knows me, knows I will try to find the positive and not count them out yet, but unfortunately I don't think there is much they can do gto get out of this hole they have put themselves in.

:scratch: Can't we all just get along! :scratch:

The Steelers brought Najeh in to help relieve Parker of the 25-30 caries a game he was getting. The clip in which Parker was carrying the ball he wasn't going to make it to the end of the season, and that's a guarantee! The question is, if the Steelers brought in Najeh to help Parker then why the **** aren't they using him? You can't expect to bring someone in that has had all of 4 carries on the day and hasn't had a chance to get in the flow of the game. Yes, they are professionals and should be ready to go when their number is called but on the particular play, that seems to be causing all the arguing, Najeh didn't have a chance and neither would the Bus in that situation. The Oakland blitzer was a fraction of a second away from taking the hand-off himself and going in for another Raider defensive score. There is nobody to blame on that play but the o-line or the backer that should have picked up the blitz.

I don't recall anyone every saying Najeh is great because I don't even know how someone could up with that kind of statement unless it was immediately following the KC game? Najeh hasn't been given a chance to really show if he is good or if he does suck! Najeh has showed some good things when given a chance, but for some people it takes more than 4 carries to really get in the flow and there is not much a person can do when they are met in the backfield by someone who blitzed and came in untouched...
