    This team was not emotionally prepared, the offensive game plan was unprepared, as a collective fromt he coaches to the players, they were not prepared to play.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    They did pick Ironhead, Jr. in the first round, and while that wasn't a pick of dire need, it was a necessary pick.

    The 2nd round was a O lineman, Gilbert.

    Rounds 3 and 4 were corners and round 6 was another OLine man.

    Their first 6 picks were 2 for the defensive line, 2 for the offensive line and 2 for the defensive secondary.

    In 2010, they went OLine in the 1st and 5th, but didn't go corner until the 5th.

    About the only thing they didn't do was go after a free agent, and Nnamdi wasn't ever a real option for us.
    In the Super Bowl, the offensive line and secondary did the team no favors. While the team did draft both o-line and d-line this year, neither Marcus Gilbert nor Curtis Brown saw the field or look likely to see the field anytime soon. If they don't see the field, they can't make an impact and if they can't make an impact, they did not address the issue. I am confident in both guys in the future, but they are not the answers yet.

    The problem is Tomlin and the steelers are so deliberate and set in there ways that the ravens finally figured them out it was like they pulled an old game plan out of the drawer and said this will work we are a talented team but clearly the coaches made so errors in the evaluation of some players i think legursky is a back up not a starting guard pouncey is the only one on the line with any footwork . Ben gets a pass for this one given the pressure he was under this may wake the rooney's up to free agency

    Honestly how often do you walk away from a game with nothing, I mean nothing good to say. Nothing positive to build on!

    I thought Sepulveda looked good and the special team play was solid on return duties and coverage.

    Yeah all good points and Wallace looked good too. I guess I was thinking we got beat on Offense, Defense, Special teams and coaching

    The disturbing part about today is that we've seen it before. You just cannot have tunnel vision and expect to be successful. Today's NFL means you learn from what beat you before. They went into this game figuring the Ravens wouldn't do anything different, when in reality they did their homework and the Steelers did not.

    While that's true, the biggest problem in the SB were the turn overs (not to mention the pick 6 like 20 seconds after GB scored.) We turned the ball over 3 times to 0 from Green Bay, and the fumble by Mendenhal was the back breaker. He doesn't fumble that, and there's no doubt in my mind that we win the game.
