its just not the first time theyve dropped a few silly games that they could have won...if they are in the mix at the end of the year none of this will matter though.
i havent been the most optimistic person over the years, quite the opposite actually but jesus theres a lot of garbage being spewed the boards lately
still firmly in the mix, they can get hot at the right time. big game this weekend and next but its a team thats been here before. the AFC is atrocious on the back end this season
But still man you have to admit this team has been madly inconsistent this year?........
Just look at the games with Ben out?.....Played the Ravens tough in Pittsburgh and really outplayed the Ravens but lost a close one.......Then the debacle in Cleveland.......Go into Baltimore and beat the Ravens with Batch at QB and then follow up with a loss at home to the Chargers......Just so frustrating.....I just don't know honestly what to expect from this team at this point....Like I said I wouldn't be shocked if they blew out the Cowboys or the Cowboys blew them out....
but since when has ben been good after injury? hes never been a good cold player, look at when he came back from any injury after missing time.
he ended up getting his feet back under him, and hopefully that was all the rust he needed to shake
But you know what would be nice for this team to start out fast offensively.......Even in the early stages of the Chargers game there was chances for the Steelers to take over that game.....Ben really didn't have the best protection on Sunday and I thought is was one of the worst performances of the season for the OL.....The Wallace drop was a huge momentum killer......I'm not blaming Wallace for the loss but just pointing out that I really want this team to start a game fast on offense....Jump out to a quick 14-0 lead and take some heat off the D especially with the secondary really banged up.....
You can never underestimate the impact of not having Dan Rooney at Heinz. He would have been good for at least two touchdowns against the Chargers.
Another huge loss was having "Mike the Hot Dog Vendor" out sick last Sunday. The way he slaps the relish on some buns would have been enough to put us over the top.
A good friend of mine bets A LOT of $$ on NFL games. I have told him whether to bet on the Steelers, or not to bet the game at all (a Pete Rose bet). I would guess I'm at least 75 percent right on the Steelers over the last 3 years since I have known him, which is why he still calls me every week. After week 6 vs the Titans I told him there was no way that I could predict which Steelers team would show up week in and week out and for him not to touch any games the rest of the year.
i heard rooney is moving back from ireland just now.
