The Steelers are a mess right now and they may be in trouble for a couple of years. After this year, Wallace and Mendenhall are both likely gone. Ben is over 30 and has nothing behind him to be a band aid. The OL appears to be getting better, but we still haven't seen DeCastro in action and Adams looks to be hurt now. The RB situation looks disasterous. The defense could be without all of the following; Foote, Harrison, Kiesel, Hampton, Lewis. There is no young depth on this team. Hood seems to be out of place playing 2 gaps. Worilds is a huge question. There is nothing at ILB. No young safety help for when Polamalu gets hurt again and Clark gives himself another concussion. Woodley shows up out of shape and ends up with chronic hamstring problems because of it and can't stay on the field. They are in need of a huge infusion of young talent. The bigger thing they need is discipline. Tomlin allows them to continually be unprepared for teams that are worse than they are and the penalties are out of control. I think that about sums up what I see right now.
