This team was a .500 team all along. I can't even get that upset over this game, because this is who they are. I said from the start that we are a rebuilding team, even with our potent offense. The defense is old, slow, lousy, etc.

We lost to teams with a combined 4 and 10 record.

I'm afraid to wake my wife up tomorrow. She had Antonio Brown on her fantasy team and the Steelers just gave her last strike in our survivor pool :(

The defense isn't going to get better until they start drafting guys who actually pan out. They've got no LB depth and a whole bunch of very mediocre CBs, one of whom is inexplicably making big bucks for rapidly regressing performance.

The offense is going to be a mixed bag until they find some OLinemen who can block AND aren't made of glass, and invest in a real starting RB.

Only if the refs let Matt Spaeth run downfield and urinate on the goal posts.

Well the next team we face has a winning record, so we should probably beat them.

One thing that helped beat the Steelers was the redzone field goal instead of TDs mode that seems to be returning.

My pre season prediction was 8-8. This team will be lucky to go 6-10. No defense what so ever

Does anyone know if Mundy was the guy who blew the assignment on the blocked punt?

The last 4 games our defense has faced - Palmer, Sanchez, Vick, and Hasselbeck.

2 wins.

No way in hell they win two road games AND DEFINITELY no way in hell they go 8-0 at Heinz Field. We lost the two most winnable games on the road already. Have you looked at their road schedule the rest of the way?

This one, yet again, is on the defense.

Meh.. i was screaming at the play calling when they got close way before the miss. They acted like they were at a 35 yard fg. I put this mostly on Tomlin (whom I'm a big supporter of)


Matt Hasselbeck threw all over them tonight. Matt Hasselbeck! The secondary committed a ton more penalties, they got virtually zero pressure on the old man AND they got run all over again.

Defense has no business giving up more than 10 points tonight.

there's no chance in hell they beat new york, dallas or baltimore on the road. they'll probably get beat in cleveland too. 6-2 at home and 0-8 on the road.

pretty sure a guy on cooler talk just blamed the loss on deferring the opening kickoff too

Wow, i wake up and see this. Not even slightly surprised. Can people finally stop being surprised when this happens? I listened to the radio all week and i hear fans and the "experts" alike say the same thing. That this team is so bad that there is no way the Steelers can blow it.

Sorry, but when you keep losing to the bad teams, guess what? YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE BAD TEAMS. Literally, the only things that have given the Steelers victories this season are Mark Sanchez being Mark Sanchez and Mike Vick doing what he does best.
