The Steelers dominated the statistics, running nearly twice as many plays, doubling the Patriots yardage total and time of possession. Yet, at the end, the Patriots were a lucky play or two away from winning the game.
No, they’re all good. But Pittsburgh continued to baffle as they hung on for dear life to defeat a terrible Jaguars team at Heinz field.
Yes. Yes I do. But not this week. The Steelers put a thumping on Tennessee, they of the Titanic whipping of the Ravens a mere three weeks ago. Those same Ravens who kicked the Steelers down the field, dragged them back up it and kicked them down again, for 60 straight minutes on opening day.
It’s been a season like that so far and the Steelers have gone from bad to not-so-bad to great to suck and now to mediocre-at-best-until-they-prove-otherwise-by-beating-the-Patriots.
They are a bad football team. Don’t try to sugar coat it. There is no hiding from it and no amount of reasoning will change it. This. Team. Sucks.
