    What an absolute disgrace

    That was an absolutely disgracefully showing. They basically quit on defense. Up 23-7, all the momentum in the world Sunday night and instead of putting them away, they completely fall apart. Heads need to roll, people need to be fire, drastic changes need to be made. Danny Smith and Keith Butler need to be fired immediately. Best case scenario is getting embarrassed on wildcard weekend. This team is a disgrace. This team is the Michigan Wolverines football team of the NFL.

    I hate to use them as an excuse but the officials handed them 14 points.

    The Green bay Packers showed the Steelers what needs to happen to a Head Coach when he cannot get the job done.

    What an absolute disgrace

    If we can’t get one ball to bounce our way in the next few weeks, we won’t even be in the WC, the amount of bad luck we have had in the last 2 weeks is enough for a season

    Re: What an absolute disgrace

    The Chargers got all the breaks tonight. Calls and bounces.
    Refs miss the false start on long TD pass.
    Refs miss the block in back on the long punt return.
    Ben floats an easy INT.
    Ben misses a wide open Hunter in the endzone.
    Hayden gets an INT broken up by his own man that falls in the receivers hands for a TD.
    We get a clean hit causing a fumble that was a tick too early, so it's incomplete all the way down in the red zone.
    Kicker misses the last FG and Hayden is just a touch off sides. The Burns ones were blatant.

    The problem is Tomlin. If he stays the same result will continue to happen.

    I get everyone wants to place blame and get rid of problem then we automatically go to SB and start and Dynasty. I admit after a loss I do the same. But its a loss by one score in last two games to teams that are hot. Don't get me wrong they were effing awful losses, I literally regressed 20 years and wanted to start breaking shit. To the question though, How is Tomlin problem for those 2 losses. Our third best player quits, fourth best injured last year its not like there are all pros waiting at home to fill their spots. Ben is reckless with the ball and our D made zero adjustments to Allen on LB's all second half. Not to mention the awful officiating. I think Tomlin has done a good job of keeping shit together this year, these last 2 weeks are hardly his to blame. There are too many other factors that contributed to the losses. 5 turnovers on the road in mile high, then Ben throws a pick to lose game. Belechic , or Lombardi couldn't get a win out of that shit. Steelers still control own destiny, too early to jump gun and start firing people now. Shit will need to change, I just don't agree its Tomlin at this point. Last year it was Haley, ok he's gone but guess what? Ben still throwing pics, and the D still cant tackle or cover.

    You had me going that it wasn't coaching right up until the part I bolded... that problem is squarely on the coaches.

    I'd replace Tomlin with James Harrison.

    Im not saying it wasnt coaching, Ive questioned Tomlin in past for game management crap and stupid challenges or lack of. I could be wrong I just don't place much blame on him for last 2 losses. Butler has to be held accountable IMO. If he doesn't come up with something new, Brees and Brady are going to torch this D.

    Excuses. Good teams win those games. There’s a pattern. What have the constants been?

    constants are Ben throwing picks, missed FG's and extra points, penalties -not sure if we still lead the league, and a slow D that cant cover or tackle. Collinsworth stated the Steelers were back to a good tackling team the other night and I spit my beer out laughing. Again I don't know Tomlin isn't the problem, but when I look at last 2 games I just see too many things to blame on him. Does he really have to coach Grimble to make it in end zone instead of trying to hit a defensive guy who gets paid to frigging hit. I miss seeing a safety who comes up aggressively like Polamalu and Clark , instead we have a bunch of Ike Taylors coming up to hit. Problem is none of them can cover as good as Ike.

    Good teams don't choke at home when they are up by 2 TDs.

    Re: What an absolute disgrace

    Really the bottom line is you can't lose that game up by 16 points at had all of the momentum going into the second half. A lot of blame to around and, I have just about always had Ben's back. NFL QB's can't miss wide open WR's for TD'S and, I know that pick he threw slipped out of his hand my god that can't happen. Not to mention the second half defense/special teams it's enough to make your head explode. Well they are out of wiggle room now.

    Re: What an absolute disgrace

    2 weeks in a row we give the game away, well we can forget a first round bye at this point and the ravens are a half game behind us. And we probably have 2 more guaranteed losses vs NE and the Saints, and probably will lose again next week cause we can never beat the Raiders
