Devastating loss. Especially if Ben is out with a probable concussion for a couple games.
Defense shat the bed in the 4th again. Couldn't get any pressure on Cassel late. Ike can't make the pick, imagine that, and the next play is the back breaker. Tough, tough loss.
At least Balty lost.
And Ben2hines4six, I'll call you a fair weather fan. Trash? 6-4 with good chance at a wildcard is neither trash or toast. Its still fucking November asshole, does '05 ring a bell? Bet you called that team "trash" after losing to Cincy. Go fuck yourself, and go root for the Browns.
Get fucking real. We're not making the playoffs if we can't solve about about a dozen issues. 2005 was a magical ride, and anything is possible, but come on. Come on. Special teams are spotting 7 every game, we have no offensive consistency, the OL is up and down, our deep pass defense is nothing without Pola, and we can't muster an effective 4Q pass rush in critical situations (like, just for one fucking example, AGAINST THE MOTHERFUCKING CHIEFS, one of the worst fucking teams in the history of the NFL).
I'd like to reiterate that last part. In 2005, we went on a little tear, after losing critical games to Indy and Cinci, who went to the playoffs. We just lost THIS here shitfest against one of the WORST FUCKING TEAMS IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL.
Just repeat that until it sinks in, and you see that we don't need a few minor tweaks, we need some people to get their asses fired. Ligashesky, you're up. Arians, don't get too comfy.
Tomlin and the entire team is too complacent. Good not to get too high or too low, but this is ANOTHER week we come out looking like we're in a post-Thanksgiving carb coma, from start to finish. No urgency. No fire. No passion. I'd like to see Tomlin channel some Cowher spit, just fucking ONCE.
I said earlier when we were 1-2 that Tomlin was getting his first real test as HC. Well, now he's got another. And now the obstacle is bigger. If some team of jelly doughnuts like the Houston fucking TEXANS gets in at WC over us, I will shit a bucket of blood and send it to them.
