i'm so sick and f'ing tired of watching this team play down to crappy opponents. this is a staple of the mike tomlin era. yes, tomlin has had a lot of success, lots of wins, but this team plays unfocused, uninspired football when it comes to shit-ass teams. and it's not just once in a while, IT'S ALL THE FREAKING TIME.
lebeau's defense was playing well this year when they were playing press man-to-man coverage. they did not do that today and we went back to giving up 3rd down after 3rd down. why go away from what works?
which leads me to troy. i said he shouldn't start when he got back because the D was playing great without him. troy's time has passed. he's not an asset out there, he's a liability. get will allen back on the field. don't give me the IKE being hurt excuse either. troy is done!
for those of you blasting todd haley, and wanting to crown BA as some super genius, i'll give you the same excuses that BA lovers gave for 5 years: the defense didn't cause enough turnovers...the o-line is terrible...etc... matter of fact, the game haley called today looked exactly like about 25 games that BA called...so if you are saying we shouldn't have let BA go...STFU! Ben was on pace for an MVP season until he got hurt. he was never he close to that with BA...
damn i'm pissed!!!!
