Where has this offense been?

Over the past few weeks you could hear the collective groans of the Steelers fan base, as the Steelers continued to struggle on offense and defense. Myself included, and after yesterdays game, those groans were well warranted.

What the offense did yesterday was unbelievable, and makes you wonder where has it been all season? Even if the offense performed at half of hat capacity I would be extremely happy.

Even the defense was doing a really a good job of getting pressure on the Quarterback. Give some credit to Luck for standing in there and taking those hits. A lesser QB would have crumbled.

I'm not taking anything away from the performance of Ben Roethlisberger, he had one of the best games ever. And hopefully he continues this level of play for the rest of the season. I see the potential of this team and that's why it's frustrating when they do not live up to it.

Game on.

Well, that was interesting

Last night it seemed as if the Steelers were going to continue on in their funk. Getting run over on offense and having a defense that looked like the squad getting cut at the end of preseason.

Then the Steelers got a Field goal, then some touchdowns right before halftime. What a crazy turn of events. The defense got some pressure and more importantly. Turnovers. In good field position. And the offense converted those turnovers to touchdowns. 

Now if the Steelers played like this every week, maybe the fans wouldn't be so nit picky.

Now the last 3 minutes of the game almost gave me a heart attack, since the defense turned into a pumpkin let the Texans march down the field and get a TD late. Luckily the hands team came through and sealed the deal. 

THIS needs to continue the rest of the season, the playing to their potential and not like crap. 

LeBeau is still on my hot seat though. He has been and will be no matter what. All things must end.

Fire Everyone.

I really thought after that Carolina game the Steelers were on pace for a decent run.


After the stinker yesterday I think we may be looking to another shitty season. 

Wasting your franchise Quarterback  for yet another season. Finally give the guy some options on offense but the defense is failing yet again. Dick Lebeau has been great but this is a what have you done for me lately kind of league. And Lebeau and the Steelers defense. Not a whole hell of a lot. He should have retired a few seasons ago. Time for a new scheme. Time for a fresh start on defense too bad we are already into this season. Regardless of whether things get turned around on D, I'm on the Lebeau to go train. And possibly Tomlin if the lawlessness of the Steelers team continues, one of the most undisciplined Steelers teams I've ever seen.
