And blaming the absence of a "good" backup for the reason we missed the playoffs is a poor excuse. The team went 1-2 without Roethlisberger. Who's to say another backup or even Roethlisberger himself could've done better considering the team lost to the Browns, Titans and Oakland with Roethlisberger? Even if both the losses without Roethlisberger were wins, this team would still be 10-6, which is only slightly less pathetic than 8-8.
Sorry but I'd like to see us force some fumbles, sack some quarterbacks, intercept some passes you know, the things the GREAT defenses of the NFL do. I agree we don't let up very many points, but the lack of takeaways is a bigger deal than you think. How many times would have it been great to get a BIG turn over at the end of a game in OUR favor. Seems like other teams have no problem doing it to us. Lebeau is fine, I didn't say to fire him, I just said I have my doubts.

Steelers were 25th in turnovers. And 26th in rushing offense.
Those areas need to get fixed.
If I could get Ray Horton out of Arizona to run this defense, I would.
The Steeler way...is the only way.
Oh you mean that guy who broke as soon as he signed with us, probably snapped his ankle signing the damn papers so YEAH DUMP THEM ALL. Hows that?
