    Well looks like everything that can possible go wrong in Pittburgh is happeneing. This season feels like theres a dark cloud hanging over us. I wonder if hell be cut because this is def a lot more severe than just a lapse in judgement, but we did trade up to get him so we shall see.

    This team is really showing a lack of discipline under Tomlin. Too many mistakes and penalties.

    Why do I expect Tomlin will handle this poorly…
