    Ben is not too blame. TACKLING and WR's are!

    Yes, Ben made a mistake in OT when all the chips were on the table. But today is not his fault.

    WRs who cant catch OR hold onto the ball and terrible tackling are to blame. Plain and simple...


    Sketchy CB's... Suspect/Inexperienced OL helped also.



    DL is still terrible. Maybe we should concentrate on DB depth who can play defense rather than only STs. Troy is a shell of his former self...

    Troy and Woodley are both just bodies out there right now.
    I was hoping DeCastro would give the line a boost, but he added nothing really.
    DB's are simply below average talent outside of Lewis, Ike, Allen. Not much depth.
    WTF is up with Butler, is he an NFL punter? So many chances to pin them deep.
    Haley's play-calling was infuriating at times.
    Turnovers again were huge game changers that killed momentum.
    The last play was a bad read, and great play by the defender. Ben was the reason we were even in this game. We had ZERO run game besides one play from Redman, in which he got hurt (that's just the way this year has gone).
    Harrison and Timmons had solid games overall. I hardly saw Clark at all. Was he dropping back deep a lot?
    Just a few off the top. I'm p*ssed and tired. In that order, night guys.

    I agree but the last play of the game being a game losing pick just sticks in the brain!

    Very similar to the one Burress ran in Cleveland when Batch was picked on the out route. never drove the defender off, just just kind of curled off and never came back for the ball. Defender made a great play, but Wallace did run a bad route.

    Just not sure why the Steelers abadoned the run - this team has to be balanced for them to win games.

    i think i saw maybe five times where troy was actually position up at the line and he made plays, and was involved....the rest of the game he was assigned deep coverage...what do you expect him to do when the entire cowboys offense was down and outs targeting victoria???

    we've lost three of our last four, troy barely played last week and had his first full start this week, i believe...

    I disagree to an extent, I will say that Ben is not the only reason they lost today but he was part of it and not just for the interception. Did you see all those low passes and high passes today? He was dumping balls at the receivers feet too often.

    Agree that young money was a joke today and this team can't tackle worth a ****.
