Twice William Gay batted the ball 20 feet in the air and it fell to the ground both times. That was 2 big opportunities for TO's that we let slip by, and it seemed to happen all the time last year too.
First of all, why do you have to call people assclowns. We are fellow steeler fans. We all know what we saw yesterday, and it wasn't pretty.
The point is plain and simple. We have very little talent. We are hoping for rookies to step up. Our line is a joke, and we lost our starting center. We are strapped with the salary cap and our drafts the last few years haven't been great. Don't have the guys to replace our aging vets we lost.
If you watched the GB vs SF game... you watched two pro teams play and can see how far we are from that status.
Jason Worilds, ziggy hood, Cameron Heyward, limas sweed. Rashard mendenhall. Busts. Wallace gone.
Mike Adams? Decastro? Pouncey always hurt. Timmons and Woolley have worked out somewhat. Timmons was good last year. Woodley? Well needs to step it up. Sean spence injured last year in preseason.
These are the guys that were supposed to replace guys like bettis,ward, Harrison, faneca. Did not happen. The truth is the offensive line has been bad since 2006, cowhers last year. Steelers have invested draft picks, but obviously they haven't pawned out.
I've been very disappointed in LeBeau over the last three years. He's gone too soft. It's like he's coaching scared. He just wants the defense to play it safe and "tackle the catch." You never see a DB jump a route to pick off a pass in this system anymore. If you take a risk, you might give up a big play. If you don't take risks, you won't make any plays yourself and will probably lose anyways.
And yes mendenhall was a bust. Yes he had two good seasons. Got injured his rookie year. Coughed up the ball in the super bowl, and sided with bin Ladin. To me he should still be on this team producing, but he's gone with his ****** attitude.
Steelers always had guys with character. From the 70s teams to guys like bettis,Lloyd, porter, ward, Woodson. But then got candy asses like mendenhall, Wallace, Worilds. Guys with no heart. Why we are where we are right now.
The steelers hardly looked like anything representing an nfl team throughout preseason or yesterday.
Bad part is if he had any offense, we win. The titans didn't light it up at all. Locker has 125 yards passing. Johnson 70 yards rushing. Defense wasn't great, but played well enough to win the football game.
