    No excuse to allow that 92 yd drive to lose the game

    Absolutely no excuse whatsoever. You cannot allow a team with 1 timeout to drive 92 yds in just over 2 minutes and win the game. Blame falls squarely on the secondary for a horrible day. Blame all around but particularly on the secondary for this one folks. In that situation you have the upper hand. If you told me that the Steelers have a 4 pt lead with 2 minutes to go and the defense is on the field, my money is on them every time to hold on and win the game. Tonight that was not the case, not by a long shot.

    Gay was targeted and blown up all day. Ryan Clark did not have a good game, even Keenan Lewis had questionable outing. Taylor got beat way too often and if Smith or Boldin catches any of those passes they dropped, it was over before the end.

    I don't understand the play calling late in the drive, Lebeau left the corners man to man on the final 3 plays or so. I get it to the point of wanting to have more guys in for the pass rush, but they didn't get there and it was only a matter of time before Smith caught one of those. He got behind Gay multiple times and dropped sure completions and the one TD. In that situation you just never, never, let anyone behind you. Keep it in front of you and make the tackle. You play a prevent defense for the entire drive, you don't stop them, so you switch man to man and still can't stop them.

    Gay has been pretty solid all year, but he was just downright awful tonight. Especially on that last drive, he ****ed up over and over and over again. He gave up every single catch on that drive I wanna say. Just ridiculous.

    It's one bad game for him but it was the biggest game of the year. I'm absolutely done with him. That was **** poor coverage he had on that TD catch. He gave them 7. Bench him. I'd rather have a rookie in there learning and playing like that than a vet. Ridiculous.

    It's called PREVENT defense, God awful defense at the end. No excuse for that drive at all, plain disgusting for a hard fought game to end like that!!

    Our defense is not ****. Our defense is injury plagued.
