Why The Steelers are 1-2 but should be 3-0

Posted on: October 4, 2009 5:42 am
 
Okay so we all know there are no excuses in football.. A win is a win is a win.  But it frustrates me when the Steelers are 1-2 and lose 2 very close games when they should have easily been 3-0.  First off the Bears Game.  You know I'm Okay with that loss.  Any Time a kicker misses 2 field goals in the 4th quarter you deserve to lose.  But seriously, Im sick of the field goals already.  Lets get a little more creative with play calling in the redzone and put some TD's on the board.  Hats off to the Bears Defense and The Bengals Defense For Holding us to Field Goal Attempts.  Fact is I think Bruce Arians needs to be a little more creative with the play calling and find a way for us to put 7 on the board. 

The Bengals Loss was just Terrible for me to watch.  Why is it that when the Steelers Get a lead we have to rush the first two downs and than throw on third and long.  Newsflash: YOUR NOT FOOLING ANYONE.  It makes me sick I know you want to run the clock out, but obviously thats not working is it.  I want to see a nice mix like in the first half with some Play action Passes to start a series, or even just shotgun formations.  Not Strong or I formations Where you know whats coming.  The Coordinator Needs to get his head out of his arse and Play to win not to lose.  Oh and i'm all for Benching Limas Sweed for the season.  Time after time your given the opportunity to come up with a big play and you drop the football.  YOU lost us the game.

Where is my DE-FENSE.  I seriously just hope that this is early season rust for our linebackers.  We have to find ways to get to the QB.  There is no pressure at all and it is killing our secondary especially late in the game.  We are still one of the top rush defenses in the league.  But there is no pass rush at all.  I think that really shows how much we depend on troy polumalu. 

People can say our crappy our O-line is, But honestly i think they have done a SUBURB job so far this season.  A few Sacks, which a few were coverage sacks.  And definitly improving on run blocking.  Overall Great job. 

So if not for a couple of early Season Miscues and mishaps  we could easily be 3-0 but instead im here ranting about our 1-2 team.  But I have no worries.  We are so close to being the complete team that come playoff time we'll be set to make the run for 7.

I WAS MISTAKEN, ITS NOT THE ATLANTA GAME THAT WILL BE ON IN NEW ENGLAND ON CBS TODAY, BUT THE JACKSONVILLE  VS. NY JETS GAME WILL BE TELEVISED INSTEAD OF THE STEELERS VS. BENGALS ... EVEN BETTER, TWO TEAMS W/ A 4-4 RECORD WILL BE ON INSTEAD OF THE SUPERBOWL CHAMPS AGAINST THE #2 TEAM...TWO TEAMS W/ 6-2 RECORD. WHO DECIDES WHAT GAMES WILL BE ON -- IT MAKES NO SENSE!

Was Not Busting On Tomlin at all.. In fact I didn't mention his name once in my blog.  I mentioned Bruce Arians.  And you see what they did this game.  They FINISHED the game offensively.  Oh and Our O-line is fine.. They Demolished the Chargers.  2-2 is fine still should be 4-0.  We'll still win the Division.. This is going to be a scary team once we get troy back

agree to the limas sweed comment. limas does not need to be anywhere on the field. he takes points off the board for the steelers and kills momentum. how many time is he going to drop a pass in the end zone? like the afc championship game vs the ravens when he dropped the ball and acted like he was injured. that catch for a td would have blew the game wide open. we pulled it off. the game last week vs the bengals was a perfect pass in his hands in the end zone. all he has to do is hold the ball. what else is ben supposed to do. i can see if he had to dive for it and lost the ball or he caught the ball and got hit hard and lost the ball. ben throws him the ball in perfect stride and he is untouched and cant hold the damn ball. he needs to be on the sideline and never see the field in a pittsburgh uniform. go mike wallace!! he holds on to the ball!!

And their win was a FG in overtime so they could also be 0-3.

I am glad their not 0-3, which they should be, is Tomlin overrated? He did inherit a Superbowl champion loaded with all-pros.
