Three weeks in and already two games back of the Ravens for the division.

Everyone thought I was crazy being upset after the Bears loss, how about now?

A game most Steelers fans were calling to be a blowout in Pittsburgh's favour turns into a close loss?

I told you.

I'm not quite sure exactly what you're hoping for?  Uum, congrats on shitting on the team you "like" and declaring the season a disaster. Once again, congrats on that, maybe the champs sports in your area has Flacco jerseys on sale.

The Ravens beat up on two of the worst teams in the league (KC and Cleveland) and barely beat a San Diego team missing it's All-World RB, Pro Bowl Nose Tackle and two offensive lineman.

The Steelers are missing one of the best defensive players in the game and had two close losses on the road against two teams with Pro Bowl QB's leading the way.  When Troy is back (and that cannot come soon enough) this will be a completely different team.

Sure, this loss sucks and there is plenty of areas of concern with this team, but it's Week 3, asshole, go find another team.

I wasn't pissed about the Bears, but I'm pissed about this one.

Fucking pissed.

We totally dominated these cunts.

The press will be brutal but there's no need to jump on that band wagon, suck it up and support your team!   angry4

In answer to the question, yes. 

But this is not the time for "I told you so."  This is the time to rally.  We can still make the season count.

It is not time to panic, but it is time for the Steelers to wake the FUCK UP!

They are slipping into the same malaise that cost them a shot at the playoffs in 2006. Time to come out of it now. If they can't do it at home against the Bolts then I will be pissed.

Also, ben2hines4six, suck my left nut. You are obviously a "fan." First one in to comment on a loss. Did you blow your load all over your keyboard in the 410 ZIP code.

Erased last post.  Went a little overboard and I apologize.  Had a few too many, shitty loss and the last thing I needed to read was a "I told you so" thread in week three of the season.  I still stand by my first post.

My apologies to all.  angry5

With a mere 14 weeks left in the season. Baltimore and Pittsburgh still play twice themselves.

If you don't think the Steelers are good enough to still repeat then what ever made you think that in the first place? This team is still loaded on both sides of the ball.

Few kinks worked out and this team will be right back where it's supposed to be come money time.

I knew you'd be back and whining at the soonest convenient opportunity. I told ya I'd worry about your opinion come playoff time but I'd knew you'd come to bitch and whine some more. TOLD YA SO!

I knew it. Everyone look at me!

No need to panic.

We're tied in the AFC with the Jaguars.  They're good, right?

And we're A game ahead of the Browns.  ONE GAME ahead. 

We rock.

I must admit that, so far, it feels very 2006-ish.  Shoulda won.  Coulda won.  Didn't do it.

I cannot even begin to tell you how livid I am right now.

There is a good chance we start 1-3.  Even if we do, I am not worried, I think Balt. will get their first L next week and that will leave us two games back.  I thought this might be the case when Troy went down.  I also think we go 10-2 the rest of the way and still win the division or at worse get a wild card. 

Did Reed not miss a 50 yarder?  We can't keep missing field goals in tight games.  Should have signed the deal Reed.

He missed a 52-yarder, yeah. It was a fourth-and-four IIRC and I remember freaking out at that time that we should go for it with the offense. Sorry I've been drinking rapidly and decisively since the conclusion of the game so the details are foggy but I definitely remember thinking we should go.

The two things I feel compelled to complain about.

1) Gotta manufacture more pressure on the QB. From wherever. From whomever. However. Just flat out need more sacks. Those drive-killers we used to come to recognize and expect.
I know we havent been in pin-the-ears-back situations, that we'll get healthier with Troy back, and that LeBeau hasn't had to/been able to empty the holster by the nature of the games BUT the sooner this can start happening the better. Im not panicking. Im not. No fucking panic here!

2) Santonio's disappearance. The guy has gone from Super Bowl MVP who looked like he found some extra gear and would just keep kicking ass in HERO mode for the rest of times. Now it rained a little in Chicago, he's looking more and more uninspired, apparently betrayed Ben on that pick-six Joseph TD, and is having trouble with easy looking catches. Gotta get him going somehow to and out of this Santonio HolMMMMMM-Dropppp habit.

Also take the pick six Ben threw and the D only gave up 17.  I find it hard to believe that the D is keeping games this close when we are not getting many sacks.

Fwiw, I'm not one to bitch about the officials, but the "hold" on Ward before our INT was complete B.S.

Eitherway, if Sweed makes a beautiful routine catch in the EZ, we have no worries.  Give me Wallace

Thank you! How the fuck did he drop that pass? Same with last week, 'Tone dropped a 4th quarter TD pass, Reed missed a FG, and then the Bears did their thing. If Holmes makes that catch last week, and if Sweed makes that catch with this week we're 3-0.  Simple as that.

I agree, Sweed's drop was ridiculous. Santonio's drop against Chicago was a tough catch, with the ball dropping over his head and the defender was right on him. There's zero excuse for Sweed -- Ben placed it just right. Sweed just plain stinks, and he should be inactive, with McDonald taking his place.

At this point, he can't be any worse than Sweed has been.  Good luck gaining the confidence of your QB and coaches by dropping balls that are directly in your hands.  Mr. Clutch can ride the pine for the remainder of the season for all I care.

IF Sweed ever plays in a Steeler uniform again, and IF Ben ever throws his way again and the MF'er drops it......

I'll kill him my damned self.

Sage and I had a great tailgate, pre-game.  It was a bit subdued post.
Sage had great friends, both Steeler & Bengal fans.  It's all good.

I think the problem is that I brought my effing sister.
She's cute, maybe cuter than me, but she's not the believer that I am.

I definitely like you're optimism and hop you're right, but with two losses, including a division loss, that will be a tough road to hoe. I'm holding out hope for WC spot.
