    I know I watched the game so I know all about the turn overs......But still how can anybody defend the play of defense in the loss to the Pack?......The offense sucked as well....It was a total team loss......But I will not make excuses for the defense since turn overs happen in football games but the defense did nothing to help win that football game.......Would have been nice if our D could have forced some turn overs you know......Like I said it was a team loss to the Pack and I put both equal blame on offense and defense.....Oh well there is really no point on going back and forth about it since it is what is at this point a loss....

    No excuses. Those are reasons. We were down + 14 before we knew what happened. It truly was a team loss. But the catalyst was the offensive turnovers early.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    agree the turn overs put the team in the hole but we saw the team respond like champions in Super Bowl XLIII and I use that Super Bowl as an example since it was mostly the same team in place for Super Bowl XLV (especially the defense).....It just wasn't in the cards against the Pack....Really sucks to let that Super Bowl slip away and despite the team playing so poorly they still were close at the end.....Football is a funny game like that sometimes.....But really I don't complain too much about the game overall since I have seen the Steelers win two Lombardi's in my lifetime.....Really it would suck to be a Lions or Browns fan so that always brings me back to reality....lol

    yea, they were shell shocked by what the Packers offense was doing... which was passing all over the field at will.

    and yet, had the Steeler defense gotten a 3rd down stop on either of the Packers 4th quarter drives...

    The Steeler defense gave up 80, 55, and 53 yd TD drives...
    They gave up 6 completions over 20 yards.... that's terrible performance in a super bowl

    the offense choked (turnovers)
    the defense also choked (TDs, 3rd down conversions, big plays)

    blaming one over the other is silly
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???

    He was in upstate NY, so I suspect they will like him in the Burgh as well...

    If he's the terror in the secondary the way I think he is, he'll have me wearing his jersey. LOL
