Too Little, Too Late: Steelers vs Browns Round 2 Recap

Plaxico Burress caught a touchdown pass in a meaningless game. Way to be Burress, try not to shot yourself in the leg. 

Steelers 24

Browns 10

Well, someone picked the Browns to win...maybe hoping for a higher draft pick, and I was wrong. But really you know you were second guessing the game too! DON'T LIE!!!!!!!!!!!

The Steelers offense never really got going, I know Ben threw 3 TDs, but they never really got into a good rhythm at all. Took them like forever to get a first down, and even then the offense just seemed flat. 

The Defense for the most part kept the 3rd string quarterback for the Browns out of the endzone. The defensive passing interference call was plain bullshit. Did you let that first sentence settle in? THE BROWNS 3RD STRING QB, FROM DUKE! WAS MAKING PLAYS AND MOVING THE BALL AGAINST THE STEELERS #1 DEFENSE. The hell? I have to say the best part was that the announcers kept talking like this kid is going to be a starter in the NFL someday, I mean maybe if he stays with the Browns, but that's it. He's the Browns 3rd stringer, so he's terrible. I guess he put on a decent show for next season, good luck!

So here's to an extremely disappointing 2012 season from the Steelers. Tons of talent on the offense, which seemingly couldn't move the ball, and a defense that took a little too long to gel and lost some games early. Oh and injuries, I believe about an average of 3 per game. I know every team deals with injuries and it's not an excuse, but I'd love for the Steelers offensive line NOT to have a different set of starters each week. Please. I mean for years the Steelers had an awesome offensive line and a shit QB, now it's the other way around. 

Can't wait to see how the off-season plays out, who goes, who stays. It's always a good time.

Steely McGnome Predicts: Steelers vs Browns Round 2

I have no idea who the quarterback for the Browns will be this week. Little bitch boy McCoy or the old rookie ginger guy, weedman or something like that.

Although I really don't care, as much as I want the Steelers to win, they can tank the game for a better draft pick. Why not, the Colts tanked all of last season to get the number 1 pick. So the Steelers can take yet another game off and lose, not like they're going to the playoffs.

OMG! I just picked another team over the Steelers, and the Browns no less!!!!

Why play like champs now, just take it easy so no one gets hurt for next season.

Done and Done: Steelers vs Bengals Round 2 Recap

That's it for the Steelers 2012 season. I know there is one game left against the Browns, but the season is over, no playoffs this year. 

Steelers 10

Bengals 13

The Steelers had signs of greatness, then just looked like crap. Hard to believe with all the weapons on offense the Steelers struggled to put up points. Especially once the defense got their act together and went on damn near lockdown of teams. The offense really just stank up the joint. Not really sure how else to describe the Steelers offense this year other than crap. 

And whatever they need to do this off-season to get back to championship form, they need to get it done. 

Bengals didn't do shit today, but best of luck in the playoffs. You're not making it next year.

Steely McGnome Predicts: Steelers vs Bengals Round 2

This is the start of the playoffs for the Steelers 2012 season. A loss and they're done, Bengals seem a little more hungry than the Steelers do, since the Steelers have had way too many chances to seal the playoff deal, but the lack of leadership on this team is something terrible.

Bengals 18

Better have plenty of beers on hand for this game, and afterwards, and possibly for the next few months.

Hog Tied: Steelers vs Cowboys Recap

I know, it's a picture of Flacco being all sad. It makes me smile, even though the Ravens got in the playoffs because the Steelers lost to the Cowgirls. 

Steelers 24

Cowboys 27

Puke vomit barf.

The Steelers got off to a slow start, then slowly clawed their way back and took the lead and they were about to put the nail in the Cowboys coffin. When all of a sudden, Antonio Brown fumbles the ball on what would have been a really good punt return. That was it. After looking back, the Steelers were just done after that play. I know they went to overtime, but it was really pointless. The team just deflated. 

Steelers NEED to win against the Bengals next week if they want a shot at the playoffs. This season has truly been a waste of the talent that is on the Steelers sidelines up to this point. It's a real shame. 

Good luck Steelers, you're gonna need it.

Steely McGnome Predicts: Steelers vs Cowboys

No idea which Steelers team is going to show up, the one that kicks ass or the one that pisses away an easy win?

Steelers 24

Cowboys 12

Jergnome Bettis is back after being suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.

Jergnome says field position and not giving the ball away are key for the Steelers to win.

Puke: Steelers vs Chargers Recap

I didn't do a Steelers - Ravens Round 2 "recap", because I just didn't OK! GAWD!!!

Yesterday, the Chargers came into town and pulled a win out of Rivers trash-talking ass. 

Steelers 24

Chargers 34

And for the second time in this 2012 NFL Season an incomplete pass by Ben Roethlisberger is somehow ruled a fumble and recovered/returned for a touchdown. Blows my mind really. I just don't get how the refs blew those calls, I get the replacement refs bumbling those calls but not the "pros". 

Field position is key in the NFL, and when you're constantly starting on your own 10 bad things are going to happen. I've read a few articles saying the Steelers couldn't get into a good rhythm on offense. True, they didn't, but the WRs dropping balls, dumb holding penalties don't help either. Mike Wallace finally came to life when it didn't matter. I hope he was happy he had over a 100 yards and 2 TDs in junk time, because I'm not. 

Three games to go, the Steelers need to win out for the 6th seed.

A loss and they're done, which is a shame because that defense is being stingy this year and when the offense is on they can dominate.

Steely McGnome Predicts: Steelers vs Chargers

Big Ben makes his return against the Philip Rivers led Chargers. Steelers need to win out for any shot at the division at this point, since the Ravens have some shit luck winning games with a defense that is sub-par and a QB who thinks he's elite but yet is just simple game manager at best. (Oh yeah, I missed my Ravens round 2 recap that would have been part of it).
