    Steelers vow to correct their mistakes

    December 25 Pittsburgh Tribune Review

    "The Steelers are home for the holidays, but they aren't about to spread the Christmas cheer after a 27-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers that was dominant yet disappointing. The offense accounted for 408 yards and three touchdowns but left the locker room knowing its ineffectiveness in the red zone leaves room for improvement. The defense forced an interception and four sacks ? including one on a fourth-and-5 at their own 32 ? but dwelled on missing tackles early and allowing a field goal late that prevented a shutout. "We haven't put together a complete game yet," outside linebacker James Harrison said. "That's something we really need to start working on as we roll towards January"

    Yea they really need to start tackling alot better, When we face playoff caliber teams, when it counts, we cant afford to have alot of missed tackles, But I guees its better than woodley only getting about 2 tackles a game. Plus we need to get more pressure on the qb, I know troy is out and smith but that should be no excuse. Other guys need to step up.

    I haven't seen so many "high" tackles since I coached Pop Warner football. Jonathan Stewart is a beast, but guys who were tackling high were bouncing off of him.

    Also need to blitz under control. Too many guys were flying in there full speed and taking themselves out of the play by running by the ball carrier or QB.

    Very true. Disiplined blitzing.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    That's good news, I'd be worried if they were all content with themselves.

    Yea but to look at the bright side. I think were better going into the playoffs than the chiefs, Ravens, jets, colts. I think were in alot better shape than them 4 teams, just not in better shape than the pats. I like our chances, just have to get the monkey off our back beatin the pats. In the nfc. I think the packers are gonna win the nfc. They look very good right now.

    I bet the NFC will have better playoff games than the AFC.

    Yea even though the afc seemed very dominant this year, the nfc has the saints,packers,falcons,eagles, bears and rams(probably). Thery ALL have very good offenses to say the least. Defenses arent as good as ours,jets,pats. But damn can them teams put up some points.

    The NFC is more balanced. Any one could come out of that side (and I'm going to bet that the #1 seed Falcons won't be the one.)

    You're crazy.

    Steelers don't match up well with New England. Never have really. The years we went to the SB, I don't think we played them, which made the road much easier.
