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

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.

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

First of all, I hate the steelers. Well for the obvious reason I live in Cincy and good or terrible I love the Bnegals. If Holmes runs the right route on joseph's pick 6, we don't win that game. We should all agree the AFC North is the tops of the NFL. Minus the Browns, but who knows they could whip our asses today and then it gets really interesting, especially for the Bengals and steelers.

Sounds like you're blaming Tomlin for your losses.
What happened to all those Big Ben 4th QTR heroics?
Your O-line can't block.
The Steelers are lucky they're not 0-3.
How about this, it's time to give other NFL franchises a little credit; they can play the game, too.
