Steeler Musings

Like it says, musings about the Steelers

Mediocrity

So glad I didn’t spend this season blogging ab out this mediocre and uninspiring team. Play for the picks, guys! Draft smarter players, please. Brainless talent is useless.

Steelers @ Broncos, 09/09/2012

Breathe in, breathe out, repeat. It will be okay. It was only Game One. It was a Road Game. Silverback was out, Ryan Clark was out, Rashard Mendenhall was out. Ben Roethlisberger had the ball in hand and a chance to drive for the win. True, it was not pretty but it could have been so much worse. These things we will repeat daily until the next game, and we will feel better.

Down and Out in Denver

First, Mike Tomlin needs to make some changes. Learn more about situational coaching. I’m not saying he should be strictly reactionary but some display of cognizance of the game at hand would be welcome.

And he should fire Bruce Arians immediately.

The Bengals are 6-2

Yes, you heard me. They’re 6-2 and looking every bit like a playoff-caliber team. Could they win the division? They control their own destiny with four games remaining against rivals Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

Andy “The Ginger QB” Dalton looks like a worthy second round pick this last draft. As does his favorite target, A.J. Green, their first round pick in ’10. Green is pulling down 5 receptions per game for an average of 15 yards.

Loss to Ravens Disheartening

When they fell behind 16-6 late in the 3rd quarter, I held little hope for a Steeler victory. The offense looked inept and the defense could not get off the field on 3rd down, no matter how great the distance.
