    Worst 3rd down defense I`ve ever seen

    We could not stop Joe Flacco on 3rd down. Joe frigiin flacco. Are you kidding me! I hate to say it but we deserve to lose this game. Ben sorry you played pretty damn well again, but our defense let you down. Harrison needed some help, no other pressure, other than JH. And Gay if he is the best we have on that side then WTF.

    I heard the announcers say the rats converted 14 of 21 3rd downs and how ridiculously impressive that is. I am in shock the steeler D melted down like this.

    Flacco converted 14-21 3rd downs tonight. Absolutely no excuse to give up 3rd and 8, 3rd and 10, 3rd and 15. Absolutely beyond disgraceful. You simply cannot allow them to move the chains like that. The pressure was getting there some of the time but we missed Woodley tonight regardless of how well Harrison did.

    The Secondary was out of position all night long. When you have 3rd downs you cannot allow guys to get behind you or allow them to get a step on you in a crossing pattern without having help from the Safety or Linebacker in the middle. The Ravens continually converted 3rd downs by using the middle of the field. It's been the bane of the Steelers existence for so long now and you thought maybe they started to get it figured out after that performance last week. You play man to man and crowd the middle. It worked last week but this week they were having none of that success in those situations. There were gaping holes in the flat all night long.

    The loss sucks but i'm proud of their performance although it wasn't top notch. The ravens had what it took to beat our steelers and they came to play as always. I applaud both teams for their tireless efforts and don't count the Steelers out just yet.

    That Suggs interception was the difference. Totally put the Steelers on their heels the rest of the way.

    No killer instinct on the final offensive drive and THEN you take a delay penalty to kill any chance to kick a FG.

    Blown timeout on a stupid/useless challenge.

    Coaching was great last week, this week...notsomuch.....

    I was happy about the delay of game if susiham would have missed the fg they would have won earlier

    Lewis didn't have a particularly good game either, none of the secondary did in pass defense on 3rd downs.

    the Steelers have had problems in the past with 3rd downs and getting off the field. They rarely have a middle of the road performance on 3rd down. Either they get off the field nearly every time or they have games like tonight where they can't stop anyone. Clark admitted in the post game media talks that the secondary let the team down tonight, clearly on that last touchdown he was out of position and admitted being late in getting there.

    Either way giving up that many 3rd downs was just unrecoverable especially late in the game.
