This Steelers team will be lucky to finish 9-7. The defense looked horrible and the o-line just plan sucks. No running game to speak of and opposing defenses will concentrate on rushing Ben with only 4 or 5 down linemen. You all have witnessed how this team will fair against the upper echelon teams in this league. This is only the beginning and it will only get worse from here.
I don't think they will...

Haley's playcalling was questionable(had flashbacks of BA). As half assed as we played we
still could have stole this one. Keep your head up man,we'll work it out. Alot of weird stuff
happens during the long season.
Redman was horrific. He looked like....Mendenhall minus the spinning. Can PB not run the ball bc of crap running back or crap blocking ?
Haley's first game looked just like Arians offense minus bubble screens and big plays.
Steelers are banged up. They can only get healthier. Dont forget Manning is 7-1 vs PB. He is not intimidated by Lebeau defensive schemes at all. We do not pay Manning every week and he is without a doubt one of the if not the best QB to play the game.
I hate this loss. I get irritated with the " road to 7" talk. pb is on the road to 7... 9-7.
Newbs knock off the shit. this team blows. plain and simple.
