2017 Week 3 Steelers Vs Bears Live Update And Discussion Thread – Second Half


The Steelers trail 17-7 heading into the second half after giving up seven points off an early turnover when Eli Rogers muffed a punt that put the Bears deep into Pittsburgh’s side of the field. Pittsburgh eventually responded with a nice-looking touchdown drive, but the Bears matched it with some dominant running and then a wide-open touchdown against the goal-line package.

The offense came back with another solid drive to end the half and set up a field goal, but it was blocked and returned for nearly-a-touchdown, short of Vance McDonald stripping the ball out of the defender’s hands before he crossed the goal line because he slowed too early.

Jordan Berry was flagged for an illegal batting penalty, knocking the ball out of the end zone, which gave the Bears possesion at the spot of the fumble, plus half the distance to the goal, which put it at the half-yard line, but after a false start, they just settled for a field goal.

Returning the kickoff from the goal line, the Bears took the ball out past the 20-yard line. Off play action Mike Glennon hit Jordan Howard in the flat, but Bud Dupree was there for the stop after two yards. Pressure from Ryan Shazier helped influence Howard being chased out of bounds for a loss of four on second down. Now third and 12, Zach Miller, the tight end, could not hold on to the pass, short of the first down, with William Gay in solid coverage.

Rogers was back to return the punt, taking it on a bounce and getting hammered after doing so with no return. Jesse James returned, but Ramon Foster remains out entering the second half.


Le’Veon Bell got the first offensive touch of the half, picking up four yards on the ground. Bell was hit immediately after a short pass for four yards. He now has the most receptions by any player in franchise history through his first 50 games. Roethlisberger connected with Antonio Brown in tight coverage for the key conversion.

From the 45, It was Brown again, going up in tight coverage again for a 10-yard reception, falling down inbounds. A bullet pass for JuJu Smith-Schuster was off-target and incomplete with a linebacker dropping into the throwing lane. Roethlisberger looked for Martavis Bryant deep down the field, by the cornerback nearly picked it off instead. Struggling to find an open receiver on third and 10, he threw a bit of a lame duck pass off his back foot for an incompletion. He was flexing his throwing hand on the sideline after that. Jordan Berry’s punt went for a touchback.

After a five-yard gain on first down, Howard looked as though he may have lost possession of the football before his knee was down, recovered by Shazier. It was reviewed by the booth and determined that…it was indeterminable. The ruling on the field stood as a recovered fumble.

Taking over now from the 16, Bell got the draw and picked up about four yards. Roethlisberger was off-target looking for Bryant streaking across the back of the end zone. On third and six, the quarterback scrambled for the needed yardage, setting up first and goal. Despite being double-covered tightly, Roethlisberger targeted Jesse James on a throw that was fortunate to have been just incomplete. On second down, Bell on a draw left was able to get to the one-yard line.

Going five wide on third and one, Roethlisberger had nobody to throw to, so he just threw it to Brown, and it netted a defensive holding penalty, first and goal at the half-yard line. On second or third effort, Bell recorded his first touchdown of the season, bringing the Steelers back into the game at 17-14.

The Steelers missed a run gap on first down, leaving a big hole for Howard. He fell on his right shoulder and exited the game after a long gain. Tarik Cohen was hit in the backfield by Javon Hargrave for a loss of one, making a nice play. A dumpoff to Cohen got to the edge to set up a manageable third down. A missed tackle on a screen to Cohen allowed him to dive for the first down on the Steelers’ side of the field.

The diminutive back was bottled up at the line of scrimmage on the ground, but was able to make Shazier miss in open space for eight on a reception. On third and two, Howard checked back in and got the first down with a 15-yard gain.

From the 25, Dupree was able to catch the back behind the line for a loss of four. Hargrave notched his second sack of the year, making his third and 21. Anthony Chickillo was held, and the defense chose to accept the penalty off an incompletion rather than make it fourth down in long field goal range. On third and 31, Cohen on the draw only made it to the 42-yard line, forcing the Bears to punt to start the fourth quarter.

After a fair catch at the 10-yard line, Bell continued to struggle finding running room, limited to two yards on first down. Off some misdirection, Roethlsiberger found Bell out of a five-wide set for first-down yardage to get the drive started. At the 24, he was caught from behind running right, again for just a two-yard gain. Smith-Schuster picked up about 25 yards on a reception to the left.

At midfield, another misdirection pass went to James to the right, getting five yards. Bell was stopped after two yards up the middle. On third and three, Roethlisberger seemed to pass over an open receiver, ended up taking a sack instead. Yet another fair catch forced by Darrius Heyward-Bey did pin the Bears deep in their own territory, able to flip the field after starting from the nine.

Shazier made the stop at the line of scrimmage on first down. Howard stayed down again after that carry and walked off the field, likely done for the day. Cohen somewhere leaked out for a few yards despite the defense looking set up for a stop. Now third and seven, Glennon’s pass was low and behind his target, intercepted by J.J. Wilcox.

Taking over at the 21, Roethlisberger looked for Bell leaking into the flat, but it was off his hands and bounced dangerously into the air, though fell incomplete. Bell picked up about eight on a draw to set up a third and two. Roethlisberger passed up the underneath receiver for what should have been a first down, instead looking for Bryant at the goal line, the pass being defensed, but Boswell did manage to tie the game.

Hargrave got pressure on Glennon on first down, but he was able to get the pass out to Howard for six. After a false start, a reverse draw from Howard was stopped for a loss of two. On third and 16 after another false start, the pass was thrown well shy of the sticks and the defense held to force a punt. The ball took a Steelers bounce out at the 37-yard line, setting up a potential game-winning drive with about five minutes to play.

A flag on Hubbard negated one of the better runs of the day for six yards. Now first and 20, Bell got the carry again on a draw, leaping over a defender to pick up a nice gain of 13. Bell out in the flat only picked up one yard on the reception, his fifth of the game. On third and six, Roethlisberger couldn’t get enough air on the ball to float it to Brown, the cornerback going up and able to get hands on the ball to deflect the pass away.

Berry’s punt only made it to the 20, and the coverage didn’t get there in time, allowing a return out to midfield. But a hold was enforced at the spot of the beginning of the return, instead pushing them back to around the 10, about a 40-yard swing.

From the nine, Howard, still in, was stopped after a one-yard gain. Shazier made a beautiful tackle on a dump off over the middle to limit the gain to three. On third and six, Glennon was able to find Bennie Cunningham late in the play in space to get the first down.

At the 25, a quick pass over the middle to Cohen added nine. After a fumble and incompletion on second down, a dumpoff to Cunningham picked up about eight yards, setting up fourth and two. Rogers fair caught the ball at the 15 with 52 seconds and one timeout remaining.

A shovel pass picked up four to Bell with the clock running. A quick pass to Brown to the 32 preceded the final timeout with 22 seconds remaining. Roethlisberger was sacked on the following play to force overtime.

The Bears won the toss to begin overtime and naturally chose to receive. The Steelers kicked short of the end zone to try to stop Chicago short of the 25, but they got out to the 26 instead.

Howard, still in, was stuffed on first down for a short gain. Unbelievably, the officials missed a blatant holding call on a very long run by Cohen that nearly ended the game if not for the officials ruling the runner out of bounds at the 37-yard line of the Steelers.

Burns failed to fill the run gap for another big gain by Howard, Mitchell hitting him hard out of bounds at the 19. Howard finished the Steelers off with another big run by Howard off the left sideline for the score, dropping Pittsburgh to 2-1 on the season. Burns was held on the play, but as is the theme of the overtime session, it was not called.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    we do not have an explosive offense. period. they are far too inconsistent.

  • Big White

    Gee the Steelers look a little “DISTRACTED”. I wonder what really dumb selfish public stunt could have caused that??

  • Chris92021

    Come on, let’s get over this garbage. Stop the running game!!

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Dline needs to not get pushed around and I still don’t get why Bryant isn’t used more in the redzone. Plays where he isn’t even on the field.

  • DAWAARE

    Time to put in Big Dan!!

  • Jason Vancil

    Is Ben R. still a great QB? Look at the weapons and look at how we perform. Especially on the road.

  • Chris92021

    We look good on paper, that is it.

  • Chris92021

    On the road, he is an average QB. At home, he is a HOF QB.

  • MP

    Just took out an extra insurance policy on my television just in case the remote “goes through” the screen.

  • John Noh

    LOL

  • WreckIess

    Huge special teams mistakes are the only reason why we’re down at the half.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Put up or shut up time. Steelers need to just do it.

  • DAWAARE

    this must be the curse of the anthem.!

  • melblount

    Good news…we have NOT given up any points in the 2nd Half yet.

    Oops..didn’t start yet.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    please stevie wonder could see this last week this was going to happen. this is on tomlins poor planning.

  • John Noh

    That and the Bears running with impunity, even with Glennon at QB.

  • melblount

    No, it’s the same curse we’ve had for the last 10 years.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    im going to sit this week write several well though out, rational letters and send them to the NFL, CBS, Dan Rooney, FOX, and the President. This is bull Crap. This is a free country you can stand or not. But you face the consequences of your actions. I hope the NFL goes under, and I think it will. Their product is sucking, labor fights on the horizon. Good bye crap league

  • WreckIess

    Even with that they weren’t doing much until Rogers gifted them the ball and obviously the FG block.

  • Michael

    Karma’s way off today. Fans, change your undies or bring out your lucky charms.

  • WeWantDaTruth

    Bears running all over us, and we have no running game. Special teams is a dumpster fire today. This is why we can’t have nice things (i.e. home field advantage in playoffs).

  • gentry_gee

    It makes no sense to punish Berry for a heads-up play. That is a stupid, idiotic call!

  • melblount

    Which makes him a bit above average at best.

  • John Noh

    Fire Danny Smith t-shirts coming out again.

  • MP

    Was inspired by steelers dpot article on 2014 bucaneers game. Last time a remote “accidentally” slipped out of my hand was during the Pirates 1992 playoff run, so it would be an “event”.

  • Michael

    Who missed the block on the FG?

  • Douglas Andrews

    Texans going toe to toe with the Pats

  • Mister Wirez

    I don’t go for all the National Anthem BS. Salute your country, and play ball! Dammit!

  • #7

    And those “terrible” Vikings killing Tampa

  • gentry_gee

    I am livid on the Berry call. L I V I D.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I think the main issue is I was only half paying attention to the game in the first half because I was busy cooking. Now that I’m done, I think we’re gonna turn things around.

  • MP

    either way, it’s a distraction!

  • gentry_gee

    Serenity now…

  • Chris92021

    If football was played on paper, we would be 14-2. Too bad football is played on grass. This “performance” is on the QB and the coaching staff. Only hope is that Glennon throws 3 interceptions in the 2nd half.

  • blue

    Refs are full of it.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Need to make a stop here, or this could turn into like the Eagles game last year

  • Reggie Cunningham

    This offense been flat ever since the season started. Change up rb probably would help. Switch Watson and bell out. Throw them off

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, Keenum or no, we played well defensively last week.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Steelers get it done in the second half and squeeze by the Bears for their 2nd road win in the last 3 games. In week 16-17, no one will remember the crazy 1st half of this game.

  • Douglas Andrews

    We’ll probably never know but Tuitt did practice on friday. Wonder if the run defense would look better if he did play

  • Pat Knotts

    Damm damm damm

  • MP

    Yeah, they sure are terrible when they play us!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Man i’m thinking how did we beat the Vikings. They look good

  • John Noh

    Hoochie mama!

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Jay Cutler is smoking again, so the world isn’t ending

  • cencalsteeler

    I see last year’s problems continuing to rear its ugly head.
    Take AB out of the O and this Offense is just not good.
    Bad tackling on D.
    Shazier continues to over commit and then miss tackles.
    Penalties.
    D doesn’t wrap up.
    Those low percentage deep passes continue stall drives.

  • Nathanael Dory

    Why its 17-7?

  • Darth Blount 47

    On the downside, our Offensive Line, what I thought was a true strength of the team, is getting pretty battered early in the season.

    On the plus side, I think we win this game. Get to 3-0. Beat the Ratbirds next week, go to 4-0, and then spend a while talking all of the naysaying Steeler “fans” down off the ledges.

  • alevin16

    ok 3 and out, good start

  • John Noh

    Here we go Steelers here we go!

  • DAWAARE

    that cohen dude is super faaaasttt

  • Michael Martin

    My sentiments exactly.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Why did he let it fall in front of him. There wasn’t a guy 15 yards near him!

  • alevin16

    I can understand not having AB back on punts so can we just put nobody back there then.

  • Paddy

    Just like Eagles game, third week too

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    This game is…yuck.

  • dany

    geez why risk that rogers?

  • Mister Wirez

    2 men out on O-Line though.

  • John Noh

    Are you holding your breath with every Eli PR? I am.

  • Chris92021

    I have a feeling Brown will be returning punts next week. Rogers is nothing special.

  • #7

    Lol Rogers is useless

  • Jonas

    Steelers batted a fumbled ball out of the endzone instead of recovering it, thus, the Bears got another play before halftime.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Time to answer boys. Bryant blowing up on this drive.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Gay is a different player now

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Eli was a great punt returner at Louisville. He forgot ho to do it I guess

  • dany

    nothing special would be good. He seems clueless there today

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Eli, stop

  • Mister Wirez

    Eli Rodgers SUCKS on punts!

  • Paddy

    Happy for him

  • Jason

    please remind Eli he is not a super star

  • Darth Blount 47

    Agreed. I think that falls squarely into the “battered” category.

  • Taylor Williams

    Our so called elite QB can’t score TDs. That’s all I see

  • alevin16

    you might as well teach Big Dan to catch and put him back there, you would get the same result

  • Nathanael Dory

    ohh thank you

  • Douglas Andrews

    Eli didn’t bring his brains with him today. What was that??

  • Jason Vancil

    Great decision to take AB off PR. Really paid off. Idiots.

  • John Noh

    Fire Danny Smith!!

  • Taylor Williams

    He covered a trashy TE.

  • #7

    Nah. Just Eli Rogers

  • Douglas Andrews

    I think he’s finding a better role for himself now that Hilton is the primary slot CB

  • Mister Wirez

    YES… They’re coaching stupid I guess.

  • Jaybird

    Wow, I’m numb. Don’t know what to say.

  • Douglas Andrews

    He struggled covering anybody last year

  • Jaybird

    Big play willie

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    *Haley

  • Rob

    my streams froze whats happening

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Just going to listen for awhile.

  • alevin16

    james is back

  • Rob

    im back

  • Jaybird

    Bears punt

  • Darth Blount 47

    We need to feature our 12 million dollar RB more…..

  • Douglas Andrews

    Alright Steelers lets do this!

  • 6 ring circus

    Are all the haters gone yet? I don’t mind realists, but a hater just speaks to be heard. A realist knows we have a chance to win this!

  • Rob

    thanks man

  • Taylor Williams

    He was fine until the pats beat us. Like they always do

  • Jordan James

    Karma’s a b itch.

  • John Noh

    I want Bobby April back. God did I just write that?

  • pittfan

    21-0 second half right here!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    only if we get out running game going

  • Jaybird

    14-17 after this drive 6 ring. Book it

  • Matt Hatchett

    Amen! Sir you are a great American

  • alevin16

    catch

  • Douglas Andrews

    Does play action really work when the offense has ran for less than 30 yards

  • dany

    AB getting his monster on

  • Jaybird

    Did Grimble miss the block on that field goal ? Anyone know?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Seriously, I forgot how people flip out every time we go down by a little. We haven’t been under 500 for the season in 14 years. I think we’re doing something right as an organization.

  • Rob

    my weekly “that shouldn’t be possible moment” sponsored by AB

  • Darth Blount 47

    Concerted effort to get JJSS involved today. Not sure if that is wise. We need to experiment a bit less today.

  • John Noh

    The bomb is going to go off one of these plays.

  • Steeldog22

    He was the man on the end

  • Still Waters

    I’ve been a Steelers fan since the 70’s, die hard. My job requires a lot of travel, and yet I have only missed a handful of games through the years. I have even rented motel rooms for only a few hours just to watch the game. I’m serious about my Steelers. Which is why I must ask this question. What the hell is wrong with some of you people?

    I love the Steelers, but holy cow, it’s just a freaking game. Grown men in tight pants running around hitting each other for millions of dollars. Some of you seriously need to crawl out of your mom”s basement and get a life, it’s a game, it’s meaningless in the grand scope of things, but some of you I think actually have evil in your hearts for these coaches and athletes when things don’t go the way you want them to. No wonder the world is such a pile of crap, no surprise America is going down the tubes. You pick the wrong heroes, you have the wrong priorities, and you’re just plain a-holes about a freaking past time. Grow up. Wake up. Get a life. BTW, the Steelers come back to win this thing lol, book it weenies.

  • alevin16

    holding

  • Jaybird

    Thought so

  • Michael Mosgrove

    this team. gonna make me start drinking again.

  • Taylor Williams

    Shut up. Football is love, football is life.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben’s thumb is fine. Right? Please God…. RIGHT?

  • dany

    Geez he had lots of time, receivers not getting open or what

  • Michael Mosgrove

    any “fan” that isnt watching anymore because of the anthem portion can ship me all their steelers stuff. ill take it.

    i’m a disabled combat veteran and i have zero issues with them.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Are we running the ball today?

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I lied

  • Darth Blount 47

    Not really.

  • Chris92021

    I hate Todd Haley.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Not a terrible place for a fake punt.

  • MP

    What wisdom!

  • Nathanael Dory

    loll they have 25 passing yards and we are losing by 10

  • Douglas Andrews

    Not sure about this gameplan of just Pass Pass Pass

  • DAWAARE

    fire todd haley

  • Still Waters

    You sir, are the very definition of a moron. Or a master of sarcasm. Where’s the font?

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Ugly. When will this offense look good again?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Is that bad?

    “It’s not good.”

  • Rick Lenzi

    Forget the deep ball get in a offensive rhythm Haley should be fired if this is the best he can do with this offense

  • WreckIess

    Ben still just won’t take what he’s given. Had AB wide on a cross and he throws it deep to Martavis.

  • Taylor Williams

    2015. Let’s go back in time

  • John Noh

    During the 7 on 7 shots

  • MP

    It has never looked good, save a few games against the Colts. Looking good; that’s a Pittsburgh myth.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    This offense canNOT be stopped. They can only be NOT started.

  • Steve Johnson

    #7 is too infatuated going deep with the ball. The Steelers need a QB that is patient and willing to take what the Defense gives him.

  • ayub

    I think that’s on Ben. It’s been like this even under Arians. Under Ken and Bill, Ben didn’t have that much control.

  • Rick Lenzi

    I believe much of this is on Ben not taking what is given too him

  • cencalsteeler

    Wth, let’s throw it deep every play!! #cantbeatemjoimem

  • DAWAARE

    gotta stop that hail mary stuff..
    doesnt work against bears d

  • Michael Conrad

    Well I have been saying for two weeks Rogers and JJSS are not passing threats. They needed to dress Hunter. This is not an offense . Its Ben to AB sand lot.

  • Chad Sanborn

    WTF is with the horrible tackling … so bad

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    what your addy ill send you all my crap. i support no one who is unpatriotic to the greatest country known to man

  • Douglas Andrews

    Yeah win with Ben and you lose with him. He’s like that bad 3 point shooter that starts off a game hitting one and just jacks up 3’s instead of running the offense lol

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    This offense is soo bad. They can’t even sustain a drive. 3rd worst in the nfl on 3rd down conversions will all this talent. Fire Haley.

  • Darth Blount 47

    We NEED TO START RUN BLITZING!

    They have less Passing Yards than I do!

  • HopeHarveys

    Revenge!

  • MP

    take it easy, bud. no pun intended 😉

  • Rocksolid20

    Solidarity , the whole team stinks today !!!!

  • John Noh

    Please God let that stand!!

  • alevin16

    I left the room so something good must have happened

  • Steve Johnson

    The RB was down. His knee hit the ground.

  • Ike Evans

    He was down….our luck is trash this game

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m definitely in on the Hunter idea if we aren’t actually going to run the ball and take advantage of JJSS and his Hines Ward impersonations.

  • ThatGuy

    That’s coming back of course

  • Jason

    knee down

  • MP

    Chat with Taylor at the end of the game. I recommend it.

  • Jordan James

    So you’re saying that everyone must have your opinion?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    How can you tell Green? You can’t tell when he lost the ball

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    NYC on the phone to the refs

  • alevin16

    you cannot see when the ball comes out

  • Taylor Williams

    That’s the only guy I blame. Matt Ryan never has these problems

  • #7

    Knee down. And Trent Green couldn’t be happier

  • ThatGuy

    Can’t see the ball at any point from that angle though

  • Douglas Andrews

    Trent Green is a hater!

  • Smitty 6788

    You can’t see the ball..

  • Jeremy McClurg

    You can never see the ball or when it came out, Should stand

  • Steve Johnson

    LeVeon Ball has 26 yards rushing.

  • alevin16

    yay

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Told ya

  • HopeHarveys

    Yep!

  • Rob S.

    I see no point where I see the ball in his possession with his knee on the ground that is the definition of inconclusive

  • nikki stephens

    where is conclusive evidence to reverse?????

  • alevin16

    trent is very mad

  • ThatGuy

    Shut up Trent Green!!!

  • John Noh

    Let’s go!!!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Bears have less than 50 yards passing and we’re still losing

  • Nathanael Dory

    the RB was maybe down. But theres no way to tellif the ball was moving b4 the fumble..

  • Steve Johnson

    They just caught a break. That wasn’t a fumble.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    No where lol

  • nikki stephens

    just answered – correct call

  • #7

    Eat it Green

  • Darth Blount 47

    Score one for CLETE!

  • Rob

    WOOHOO

  • DAWAARE

    blocked view no clear evidence maauaaaa

  • Chad Sanborn

    7=book it

  • Jordan James

    We should have signed him to a 5 year 100 million dollar contract, you know?

  • Michael Conrad

    Put Conner in there.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    im so tired of false political points. and to make it worse they want to not stand for our flags country, while playing a game

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    It’s a mix of both, one needs to go and that won’t be ben.

  • Steve

    A lot of Ben haters on here today. Put Landry in and let’s see what happens

  • Douglas Andrews

    Take that Trent Green and rewind it back!!!

  • LucasY59

    refs making up for the blown call at the end of the half

  • Michael Mosgrove

    STOP GOING DEEP BEN USE THE MIDDLE YOU IDIOT.

  • Rob S.

    I agree! Thank God for no conclusive evidence

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Bell’s doing okay, needs more touches

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Here we go

  • Chad Sanborn

    can we stop throwing homeruns and start throwing to the cutoff man

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bryant needs to develop Red Zone skills to truly become a monster. That Bengals playoff TD seems like 7 years ago.

  • Steve Johnson

    Is it me, or does it seems like each time #7 throws the ball in the Redzone, my heart stops.

  • Steve

    For the money he wants, needs to do better than ok

  • alevin16

    i think Ben could have scored

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Finally Ben, you didn’t force anything. Take what the defense gives you!

  • Darth Blount 47

    The wheels on Ben go round and round!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben’s just slightly off this game.

  • Buccos9

    This offense looks like the Bruce Arians mad bomber offence. I thought they ran him out of town to get away from this stuff. It’s no wonder they have only one drive with more than 6 plays. On defence, the missed tackles are atricious. Too many defenders don’t wrapup. Disappointing all-around, especially the special teams.

  • alevin16

    why 5 wide? They know you are not running then

  • John Noh

    WTH!! Don’t we have a $14M running back?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    JJ’s feet got tangled

  • dany

    10 years ago that’s a td haha

  • Ike Evans

    Can’t buy a flag

  • Nathanael Dory

    I havent seen that in 8 years lol

  • Matt Manzo

    C’mon STEELERS! When I get home I wanna see a bunch of 2nd half highlights!

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Now run it twice. No throws

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Give it to Bell.

  • alevin16

    maybe i am biased but i think last year bell gets in

  • Darth Blount 47

    3rd and Goal from the 1……….

    RUN THE BALL!

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    It’s called being objective, he’s been pretty bad with his decision making.

  • Chad Sanborn

    dumbest play calling ever at the goal line

  • John Noh

    5 out with 1 yard to go. SMFH.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Thank god for the flag, cause I was about to powerbomb my tv at that play call

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bailed out from the ridiculous play call…………………….

  • alevin16

    run run run run run run run run run

  • Ike Evans

    Who TF is cooper

  • dany

    give it to Bell, ben’s bein off

  • Douglas Andrews

    LMAO!

  • 6 ring circus

    Ya think?!

  • #7

    5 wide from the 1?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Shotgun…….

  • Steve Johnson

    The O/C is an idiot! Run The D Football!

  • Dee Evolution

    Are they trying to put up fantasy points? Run out of the POWER I!

  • Rob

    why is Haley like this?

  • Nunya

    First play I see today and we are 5 wide on 3rd and goal from the 1?? Tells me all I need to know…

  • Steve

    Run Conner

  • Darth Blount 47

    It’s rocket science, I know.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    welcome to 2012. we know this.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    idk

  • alevin16

    why is Nix not in? I am happy for the score but I just don’t get it

  • Aj Gentile

    Can we ask the question now if this offense relies on penalties to much?

  • Rob

    FINALLY

  • 6 ring circus

    Book it…”W”

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, we’ve got three fantastic receivers (Brown, Bryant, Bell), plus JuJu and JJ. We should be able to get someone more open than that.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Only needed about 20 things to go our way to score but I’ll take it.

  • dany

    you got a break, now run it!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Do you think the Bears fans like the refereeing?

  • John Noh

    Determined run! Great job Finney!

  • WreckIess

    3rd and goal at the 1 and you go empty? That’s 0 confidence in your o-line.

  • Jason

    that TD is Finney’s

  • Rick Lenzi

    EMPTY BACKFIELD WTF

  • Agustin-ARG

    great push by Finney

  • Taylor Williams

    Landry would looks no better, but he’s a backup

  • alevin16

    i am liking Finney better than Foster now. Does that make me a bad person?

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m gonna send that Side Judge a fruit basket!

  • Aj Gentile

    I was just about to ask this

  • Sdale

    That might have been the longest 20yd drive I’ve seen in the NFL.

  • John Noh

    LOL

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    That TD couldnt have been any harder to get.

  • dany

    He took like 20 hits in one play

  • NinjaMountie

    Don’t care that we scored. Horrible being in shotgun from the half yard line. Horrible being empty from the one.

  • Steve Johnson

    Wow! I’m surprise Tomlin didn’t go for two. HA!

  • Rob

    Only conclusion is that Haley has more weapons than he knows what to do with…or all of these players underperform on a weekly basis

  • Chris92021

    OK we got away with one. Now let’s get another turnover!

  • John Noh

    No I’m with you on this.

  • Rick Lenzi

    Have to get Grimble out of there should have been blocked

  • Steve

    Funny how no one questions it when it works out. Franchise quarterbacks must be a dime a dozen

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Weird day in the NFL. Evryone you think should win is losing, except for the Patriots, and they are up 1 against a Rookie in Foxboro

  • Darth Blount 47

    Maybe Haley had a stroke.

  • #7

    Bell is running better. The line still stinks though

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Saw that

  • Jason

    you know Haley was thinking deep ball there on the 1

  • Douglas Andrews

    IKR….Bring Watson in on 3rd and 1 to get the first but go shotgun at the 1 or empty set….WHAAT!

  • Steve Johnson

    I agree! What the hell was that? Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

  • Mister Wirez

    Yes and No.. lol, but me too.

  • Nathanael Dory

    hahahhahah

  • Taylor Williams

    We know Haley sucks. Ben could change it though.

  • John Noh

    Ben drops back 60 yards too.

  • Chris92021

    He needs to be cut as soon as McDonald is comfortable enough in our offense.

  • 6 ring circus

    We debated that last year. I think with a ton of reps, hands down, Finney, at least IMO

  • WreckIess

    Interesting stat: No Bears wideouts have caught a pass yet today.

  • alevin16

    and bubble screens

  • DAWAARE

    dayum lotta good games goin on rite now
    texans pats
    falcons lions
    denver bills

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben needed to keep his thumb limber???

  • Steve Johnson

    No, Ben is just as bad, to infatuated with throwing the ball.

  • Jordan James

    The fake narrative of these protesters were exposed by Bennett getting arrested and lying about what happened. TMZ exposed the type of nonsense these protesters are selling.

  • Rob

    There goes Brady and Belichick playing down to competition they should be beating by 30

  • Smitty 6788

    Way to finish drive.. With a TD

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    Go Virginia Tech is my new motto

  • Chad Sanborn

    never become one dimensional on the goal line. Haley=Dunce

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, I really didn’t anticipate the Ravens getting blown out today. Another reason why I really don’t want to blow this game.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    you see this rokie qb play yet, if not you will

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Haha.

  • Chad Sanborn

    well said

  • #7

    Bennie Cunningham deep. I remember that

  • beermonkey

    Bye

  • Sdale

    Has this D never seen a draw play? My mistake, it wasn’t even a draw…just a 10 yard wide hole to run through. Ouch.

  • Smitty 6788

    Hate empty set from the 1 yd line

  • Douglas Andrews

    Guess the Steelers only use short yardage Offense when their at the 50 yard line. Watson got you one yard but now they’re going empty on the 1 yard line…smh!

  • Darth Blount 47

    They don’t need to when Howard gains 20 with each carry.

  • alevin16

    did not realize he came out of retirement 😀

  • Michael Mosgrove

    what is this defense?

  • dany

    Man steelers gotta sign the kid who caught that td

  • alevin16

    porous

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Chick doesn’t set the edge well in the run game at all. Missing Watt today badly

  • Steve Johnson

    What The Hell has happened to the Run Defense?

  • beermonkey

    All D’s get fooled every now and then.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    our offensive playcalling has been atrocious, our defense has been horrendous. pick your poison.

  • beermonkey

    Jayvon!

  • John Noh

    Way to contain Gravedigger

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Watt and Tuitt hurts a lot

  • WreckIess

    Yeah, but even Steph Curry takes the layup when it’s open.

  • dany

    aw that sucks for Howard

  • Clutterbox

    Where is Deebo? Is he playing today?
    Anthony Chickillo needs to do a better job containing the edge.

  • Dee Evolution

    Keith, stop blitzing the run, please.

  • Michael Cunningham

    DeeBo is kinda good at that

  • Darth Blount 47

    Yeah, but Vance McDonald though!!

  • Rick Lenzi

    Chickallo has had a bad game

  • thomas hmmmm

    Hargraves is terrible versus the run get McCullers in there. All the bears are doing is running up the middle and Hargrave isnt good enough to stop it. Huge holes everywhere…

  • beermonkey

    Chick is > Deebo now.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Who?

  • Taylor Williams

    Our offense is supposed to be explosive. Defense giving up 17 points is not a problem

  • Clutterbox

    Terrible tackling by Chickallo

  • #7

    Negative ghost rider

  • DAWAARE

    Dan ‘sir gregor’ Mcullers can stop the run
    put him in

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Bad tackling might be the story in this game

  • Smitty 6788

    Chickalo is playing awful

  • Ike Evans

    Another missed tackle

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m not sure that can be qualified as a “tackle.”

  • #7

    Harrison please

  • dany

    honestly, bears should go for it

  • Chad Sanborn

    has been for the last few seasons.. thats a product of an undisciplined team

  • beermonkey

    I’m going to go with the coaches know better than you

  • Jeremy McClurg

    You learn tackling in pop warner…..

  • Jason

    if only they could tackle

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    I don’t think ben trusts Haley as an OC and tries to overcompensate. Rightfully so, but the problem is, Ben’s decision making isnt exactly good.

  • Steve

    Bring Deebo in!!!

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Tackling has been terrible.

  • Clutterbox

    Another bad positioning by Chick again

  • Rick Lenzi

    they fell in love with chickalo

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    slow to diagnose wilcox

  • alevin16

    At this point I would be thrilled holding them to 3

  • Chad Sanborn

    do we think this is flag football?

  • Steve

    Deebo!!!!

  • John Noh

    Is there a DVD on tackling we can send these boys?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    How many times have they ran it to the left?

  • Steve Johnson

    This is hard to watch, the Defense looks weak against the run.

  • Sam Clonch

    Chickillo getting killed in the run.

  • dany

    Seriously, I want Cohen on the steelers. Missed chance

  • Mister Wirez

    Jesus, we can’t tackle

  • 6 ring circus

    New CBA rules…no time to practice that fundamental bs…

  • Rick Lenzi

    running right at chickalo, i think this is all Joey Porter

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Shazier wiffing again…

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Hargrave is a strong man

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    hargrave is owning this center

  • alevin16

    about time for the sack!

  • dany

    time for harrison right??

  • Darth Blount 47

    GRAVEDIGGER!

  • Mister Wirez

    Time for Harrison to set the edge. Chick getting handled on run.

  • Douglas Andrews

    We’ll at least you don’t have to hear Trent Green’s low center of gravity comment for the 50th time

  • Rob

    Run defense just lacks consistency..one play goes for a loss of 5 next goes for 25

  • HopeHarveys

    Holding on Chick

  • alevin16

    hold on the bears

  • Nathanael Dory

    loll walton and big Dan in

  • WreckIess

    Tuitt and Watt have been missed

  • Jeremy McClurg

    5 yard

  • Jaybird

    No doubt

  • Clutterbox

    It should be a 10 yard penatly!

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Gotta be honest, they raised my expectations a little after last week. Wouldn’t have been that surprised last year.

  • dany

    Hey seriously, Hargrave could easily have 7+ sacks as a 3-4 nose tackle. That alone will get him a pro bowl, perhaps all pro

  • Dee Evolution

    Nah… Tackling has been their weakness for a long time. They fell in love with the torpedo when we had Ryan Clark at FS.

  • nikki stephens

    Sorry time to call out week 1/2 darling – chickillo….haven’t seen a team have such luck running on that side in years.. ….get james out there to at least set the edge and stop these runs….yeah just got a hold call but been burnt on run game 4 out of last 8 plays.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Weak excuse, they’ve just been bad

  • dany

    huuuuge hold on chick haha

  • Clutterbox

    there is no 5 yard offense penalty! wtf

  • Darth Blount 47

    There goes Sean Davis to the locker room.

    Somewhere, Shane Mitchell celebrates.

  • Jaybird

    It was 10

  • Douglas Andrews

    I decline the penalty

  • Rob S.

    Were they really going to try a 53 yard field goal?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    What do you mean, “find out hat they’re gonna do” It’s 4 and 26

  • dany

    they should have gone deep

  • Ike Evans

    I don’t want to hear not 1 of you say anything about chick when they’ve run mostly to the opposite side of the field this game and I haven’t heard y’all say a dag on thing about Dupree

  • Douglas Andrews

    No Eli

  • ryan72384

    They need to stop just using him as a NT. Find ways to keep that guy on the field. He’s a force

  • WreckIess

    Let AB return the next punt please.

  • Nolrog

    LOL. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say they punt.

  • nutty32

    Chickillo showing why he’s a jag. Just not squeezing down those running lanes at all. This is what TJ does extremely well. Walton is doing work too when he’s been in there. Shocking they’re not trying Harrison on run downs.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Maybe a fake

  • #7

    How is John Fox still a head coach? Must have the same naked pics of Goodell that Jeff Fisher had.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I’d make them try it. They already missed one today

  • melblount

    DuPree waits 3 Qtrs to make a play then goes into a celebratory dance.

  • Rob S.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure they punt it. No reason to take that penalty there.

  • DAWAARE

    so wuts up with harrison?

  • Nolrog

    Too far to go. If it was 4th and 6, maybe.

  • Mister Wirez

    26 yards? No way

  • melblount

    What’s up with the HC who won’t play him?

  • Douglas Andrews

    Agreed….another one of Mike T’s questionable in game decisions

  • Rick Lenzi

    Fox two super bowl appearances

  • Kevin Schwartz

    The guy I’m playing against in Fantasy has the Ravens D. They got -4 points for the day – gave up 35+ points, and had no sacks or turnovers. I’m pretty sure that’s the worst you can possibly do.

  • beermonkey

    Gotta give him a little love as a former Steelers coach but he topped out at coordinator.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    i have watched him closely, he needs more fire in his pants

  • nutty32

    lol – try watching with your eyes instead of your heart

  • Mister Wirez

    The whole D except Hargrave and Shazier playing questionable

  • DAWAARE

    case keenum kiling tampa bay

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Now, run the ball

  • Jaybird

    Good luck in your league. May the Schwartz be with you.

  • 6 ring circus

    Lol, he’s been playing whiffleball, too!

  • #7

    Great catch Rogers!

  • alevin16

    and tampa killed chicago and we are losing to them, the NFL is nutty

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    i have been noticing he sucks this game…. no physicality

  • nutty32

    scoreboard?

  • Rob S.

    They announced 5

  • Ike Evans

    Lmao

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Steelers fans in the first half: “we’re gonna lose this game”

    Bears fans in the second half: “we’re gonna lose this game”

  • Nolrog

    The punt?

  • Mister Wirez

    Put me in coach…. I’m ready to play! Today!

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Ha – haven’t heard that joke in years, but thanks! Crushing the same guy in both leagues today. Having AB on both teams is pretty nice, especially in PPR.

  • WreckIess

    Will Ben learn to take the check down? Let’s see here

  • HopeHarveys

    Ring that bell!

  • John Noh

    Nice play call

  • #7

    Yes. Baby steps

  • Nolrog

    LOL.

  • beermonkey

    It’s over? Who knew?!

  • Jaybird

    Way to go

  • Darth Blount 47

    I remember when it used to be Bell… Bell… Bell…. those were the good ol’ days.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    That was like 9 months ago lol

  • Steve

    Needs to earn that money he wants

  • HopeHarveys

    YAC Ju Ju

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Is there a reason we have Bell line up next to Ben and come from the side like that? It seems pretty unique to me.

  • Jaybird

    Juju be good

  • Douglas Andrews

    Wow i’m shocked no deep ball throw by Ben.

  • alevin16

    Good job Ben, no need to always go for the deep ball

  • Michael Martin

    Finally juju

  • Darth Blount 47

    That long? 😉

  • alevin16

    this game is turning into a MASH unit

  • HopeHarveys

    YAC for the Outlaw!

  • Steeldog22

    Yep. Do that 4 times

  • John Noh

    Outlaw always looks like he’s running on tip toes

  • Darth Blount 47

    Jesse James explodes like a Volvo.

  • #7

    Rogers has already been supplanted on the WR depth chart

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Ben took the underneath receiver? Whaat?

  • Nunya

    Bell does not look good, even when he has space.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    We’re successful when Ben goes through his progressions

  • Chad Sanborn

    wasted

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Houston winning

  • #7

    Pats defense really does stink at the moment

  • Darth Blount 47

    Picked a bad time to forget to block…….

  • 6 ring circus

    Yep, was thinking like YAC lite

  • beermonkey

    Hate not going for it here but I get it.

  • Jaybird

    Ugly football. But we can still win this. Gotta get out of dodge with a win.

  • dany

    dammit he had bell

  • Agustin-ARG

    ugly game

  • Jeremy McClurg

    I get this strange feeling this game would be different if we were healthy up front on both sides of the ball

  • John Noh

    Why am I strangely not nervous? I’d normally be apoplectic.

  • Nunya

    The entire offense looks out of sinc today. You would think we were playing a no win team on the road or something…

  • DAWAARE

    Gilbert is missed 🙁

  • dany

    you’ve learned to enjoy the hilarity of it

  • 6 ring circus

    Looking slow..is it the shoes?!

  • Steve Johnson

    Try something new, give Watson a few carries, mix it up. Bell stutter steps too much. 3rd and three, this O/L can’t block and pick up three yards?

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Need a 3-and-Out

  • Jordan James

    Odell Beckhem is showing is childish a ss with the black power TD celebration. He’s so brave and cool.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I’m fine so long as we win, but I would like to see one drive where it actually looks like we have a top 2 RB, a top 2 WR, One of the best deep threats in the league, a top-5 offensive line, and a Hall of Fame QB.

  • Jaybird

    Me too. I’m calm . I think we’re gonna win . Or it could be the Xanax

  • Mister Wirez

    Pick 6 coming from Gay! I’m feeling it.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Do the Bears really have -53 Passing Yards? Cuz it sure seems like it. I can’t remember the last team to NEVER throw the ball and lead all game.

  • alevin16

    A long time ago when Maddox started a game against Houston it was even worse

  • HopeHarveys

    Fumbled punts and blocked FGs will do that to you.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Dude, F off with the racial sh*t. He can do whatever he wants.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    of course hes slow always had been

  • Taylor Williams

    We used to back in the Bus days

  • T R

    the xanax, its to many chocalate chip cookies for me..

  • beermonkey

    Bears were in it to the end vs Falcons, Falcons “killed” the Pack, Pack will likely kill the Bears. Something something Sunday

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    This… we look similar to the Giants right now. Pathetic

  • Mister Wirez

    Steelers are getting kina predictable. You’re right. Mix it Todd.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Losing TO battle along with that special teams gaff. Remember it should be 21-14. Maybe even 24-14 if the Bears make that FG

  • WreckIess

    We really have to stop with the shotgun runs.

  • #7

    Yep. I think they had fewer than 50 total yards and won by 18

  • Jason

    looks at NFL scoreboard

    we know nothing about the NFL right now

  • HopeHarveys

    Howard is a warrior out there today.

  • Darth Blount 47

    How many times is Howard gonna pull this act?!?!?!?!?

  • Nunya

    I really wouldn’t complain if we saw Conner for a series….

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    You misspelled Conner

  • beermonkey

    Conner time

  • Jordan James

    You f off. I can do whatever I want, you stupid hypocrite.

  • alevin16

    I think if you are down twice you need to stay out

  • Smitty 6788

    OL is bad today

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, you can. And, I can tell you that it’s unwarranted.

  • NinjaMountie

    It’s gonna be a squeaker boys!!

  • Rob

    Wouldn’t mind Howard stepping out for a bit

  • alevin16

    Woaw if Dupree missed that I saw a lot of green

  • Darth Blount 47

    After he breaks his next 20 yarder I’m screaming BS!

  • alevin16

    need glennon to turn it over….ok I am going to play the lottery tonight

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Feels like preseason

  • Mister Wirez

    Houston 30
    Pats 28

  • dany

    kid, go sit down

    really, sit down so the steelers can edge out a win

  • ayub

    And boo birds.

  • Jaybird

    JJ

  • John Noh

    Please stand!

  • Steeldog22

    JJ!

  • beermonkey

    74 is good but at this point 77 is great.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    JJ

  • Agustin-ARG

    Wiiiilcooooooooox!!

  • 6 ring circus

    Like…

  • Rob

    YAYYY

  • Ike Evans

    We needed that…..tribisky time?

  • Douglas Andrews

    Nice play by Bud

  • beermonkey

    Close enough

  • Chad Sanborn

    2 takeaways today

  • Darth Blount 47

    Glennon was rusty. He hadn’t thrown since last week.

  • Jordan James

    Your opinion isn’t it? Whites have to go along with what ever you say and do or they are racist. You ignorant sh it

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Finally a safety with ball skills.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    What a great sign! Upgrade over Davis for this game at least

  • Jaybird

    You called it

  • nikki stephens

    nice JJ

  • #7

    Pick. Trent Green is crestfallen

  • dany

    Hm the trades are working out today..

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Not a pick 6? I’d booked it. Disappointing

  • alevin16

    although he almost had the big o on that bounce off the hands

  • nikki stephens

    great play by our #2 WR

  • Rob

    Comment of the day

  • Nathanael Dory

    start the guy!

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Bell may have scored there

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Dude, my picture is in my avatar. I’m white. You’re the one complaining because a black person put up a fist. I also never called you a racist.

  • NinjaMountie

    gotta td it here

  • dany

    Gotta end it though, no field goals

  • Mister Wirez

    We’ll take it though!

  • Steve Johnson

    Bell Held Out, we are seeing the fruits of his labor. That ball could have been picked off.

  • Chad Sanborn

    why do i feel like we are playing for 3 here?

  • alevin16

    One of the biggest 3rd and 2s of the game right here

  • Michael Conrad

    Bell has lost a step

  • jsteeler

    WHY IS BEN THROWING THE BALL SO HARD TO LEVEON 2 YARDS AWAY?

  • alevin16

    sigh

  • Aj Gentile

    Is Nix hurt?

  • Douglas Andrews

    He looks off a bit

  • T-51b

    He’s had a lot carries in college and the NFL.

  • Jordan James

    Youre the one complaining about me bringing it up. So go f off. It’s a free country.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Cooper ain’t a bad player, it’s just…..

  • Paul RK

    playin for the FG…

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Okay – peace.

  • Rob

    released for steven johnson and signed to the practice squad

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    The D has looked so bad I honestly forgot we picked up Haden. He hasn’t done anything either.

  • alevin16

    way to put the foot on the throat

  • Douglas Andrews

    Bring in Watson!!!!

  • Jordan James

    f you.

  • John Noh

    New ballgame, y’all!

  • Jaybird

    Cmon man he’s gotta catch that. He always does

  • Ike Evans

    Who TF is Marcus cooper

  • Darth Blount 47

    I doubt the guy he has covered has caught a single pass. Lol

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    that was Forte

  • Applebite

    They should’ve ran it on 3rd down….this is where I become agitated with Haley

  • Nolrog

    Tied the game, but a FG there is disappointing.

  • NinjaMountie

    Welp….D needs to step up again.

  • 6 ring circus

    Ok…get ready to hear complaints about a 3-0 record…

  • jsteeler

    Chicago isn’t throwing his way.

  • Steve Johnson

    Oh No! They don’t make adjustments. 3rd and two, they can’t pick up two yards. Try Something New!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Alright I usually stay off of Todd Haley but this shotgun stuff on 3rd down is ridiculous

  • beermonkey

    It’s almost like people never watch football

  • Jaybird

    No , I think it was forte.

  • DAWAARE

    why not run?
    ok
    fire haley

  • #7

    You serious Clark?

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Don’t count your chickens yet

  • Darth Blount 47

    I tried to “like” this multiple times.

  • Chad Sanborn

    uhhhmmmmmm game aint over yet genius

  • Rob

    just joshing lol sarcasm really doesn’t come through over the interwebs

  • Mister Wirez

    I agree. Get Ben under center too. Jesus they’re their own worst enemy.

  • Grant Humphrey

    We needed a touchdown but instead of going for the 2 yard first down we went for the endzone stupid play call.

  • DAWAARE

    todd haley needs to go

  • 6 ring circus

    Yea, but they are naked!

  • jsteeler

    I agree. and Ben isn’t accurate today. The Steelers are on the road.

  • Rob

    i know i know haha no one knows where nix is besides haley

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Not saying he’s been bad, just invisible. He has to play the run too.

  • NinjaMountie

    Honestly, not a fan of this play calling. Still, Bell’s drop was a drive killer.

  • beermonkey

    0 reason to bring in the 3rd stringer outside short yardage but Cooper should be getting some carries.

  • Michael Conrad

    So is Bell losing a million a game or what.

  • Mister Wirez

    The guy that pulled the Leon Lett at the half… Lol

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    if you dont hear a cb name he is doing his job

  • Jaybird

    Cmon Mountie , where you been man. Whoop it up. Start typing ! You da good luck c

  • WreckIess

    Corner from Arizona. We tried to sign him around the time we tried to sign Davon House.

  • Rick Lenzi

    someone needs to go here we missed some great opportunities

  • Smitty 6788

    Need a 3 and out here guys

  • Agustin-ARG

    MJ23 for ever

  • Darth Blount 47

    Well, NOBODY has done that so it’s guilt by association on that.

  • nikki stephens

    should be paying back or giving back

  • Zarbor

    This offense is offensive. Its getting near the time to consider changing something drastically. Three weeks of sporadic poor offense. Too much talent to be this anemic…..Haley, Ben, I’m starting with the two of you as the leaders of this offense.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Bring in the Nightmare! go for the win

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    hope so…

  • 6 ring circus

    I am, but how did u know?!

  • beermonkey

    Or, guy trying to make up for that boneheaded play.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    They’re sure running his way.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Naked chickens?

  • Chad Sanborn

    this gane has 2 story lines. Missed tackles and bad throwing decisions.

  • Steve Johnson

    I agree, there is too much talent on this team to be playing like this.

  • NinjaMountie

    I was doing play by play on the phone for a friend that doesn’t get the game.

  • Mister Wirez

    Should be.

  • jsteeler

    Bell was 2 yards away. Ben threw the ball 100 MPH. Why?

  • Darth Blount 47

    What do ya know…. Howard is back. SHOCKING.

  • NinjaMountie

    Boss really worked on his leg strength or something

  • Jaybird

    Strip sack fumble. Book it

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    McCullers in

  • alevin16

    whenever the bears need a breather his shoulder starts to hurt

  • WreckIess

    No Bears receivers have caught a pass yet today so I’d bet he’s had a good day.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Yea, that’s why I said the D. Not to single out haden for his performance but it feels like we’re watching the D from 3 years ago. That’s the point I’m making.

  • Rob

    we’ve whiffed on a couple sacks that turned into checkdowns and 1st downs

  • NinjaMountie

    It wasn’t that hard and he should have caught it

  • Nolrog

    Because there’s still more than 7 minutes on the clock. Clearly everyone knows.

  • #7

    The Bears are not good at all

  • Jaybird

    Howard is looking to avoid contact.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Can’t wait to see the missed tackle report from this one.

  • alevin16

    ugly

  • Darth Blount 47

    Shaz has played well. Him and Gravedigger.

  • pittfan

    Yes!!!

  • Rob

    Gap integrity has improved for the most part in the second half, and that has been the difference maker

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Might break the computer

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bingo.

  • Sdale

    He had a rough start, but he’s been very good this half. Gravedigger has been great.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    They’ve barely thrown the ball. He can still make plays.

  • alevin16

    OK now we see if we shake the monkey off our backs

  • Applebite

    That guy has no Sowell…..he’s killing them!

  • jsteeler

    LETS GO STEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ayub

    Well played sir.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    You’re misinterpreting

  • NinjaMountie

    Get’r done

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Need AB to return the punt

  • alevin16

    I would run Conner here

  • Rob

    could have been another false start on the right tackle i thought

  • beermonkey

    Wait, I thought Jayvon was terrible. People been saying it.

  • Jaybird

    That and Howard hurt his shoulder.

  • nikki stephens

    saw that

  • pittfan

    Shut out for the half so far

  • #7

    Thank you for not kicking it to Rogers

  • Darth Blount 47

    35 yard punt. Nice. Needed that, Ravi Shankar.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Need 7 points here. No excuses

  • beermonkey

    I would too but it won’t happen. Tomlin gotta Tomlin. And I love Tomlin. 😉

  • John Noh

    LOL. Nice ’60s reference!

  • ayub

    Memo to steelers: The Ravens lost and the Pats are losing.

  • pittfan

    8 to beat the spread! Gimme 8’n

  • Douglas Andrews

    Good no return by Eli

  • dany

    time to run bell or is he really only gonna be used in cold weather?

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    They simply weren’t playing this hard in the first half. Frustrating

  • Zarbor

    Well, if there is one thing that is clear on offense in this game is that Todd Haley have officially replace Eli for JuJu on offense. Has Eli even got a chance outside of returning punts? What a horrific mistake….

  • Agustin-ARG

    Plan A: short passes, no mistakes, move the chains and burn the clock
    Plan B: deep to mb10 and win it

  • Jaybird

    Up vote for a Shankar reference.

  • jsteeler

    STEELERS D HAS STEPPED THE F” UP!
    Now , can #7 put up 7 to seal the deal?

  • NinjaMountie

    I want 7 here. WIN THIS GAME O

  • 6 ring circus

    Yea, roll the dice once…uh maybe we’ll see later it in the season when the stakes are higher…

  • nikki stephens

    yep this is a good test, are we ever gonna have the “shove it in your face attitude” on days when you are off….

    just the will to win despite the odds stuff

  • Douglas Andrews

    Agreed much better second half.

  • beermonkey

    JuJu is a 2nd rounder and very good, as long as he’s not gettting called for holding defensive players.

  • alevin16

    and the drive killer

  • SilverSteel

    They are handing us this game. We better respond

  • Michael Mosgrove

    mother hubbard as usual with a holding call.

  • John Noh

    FU Hubbard!

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Haley likes Plan B

  • Zarbor

    I remember the days when I was extremely confident in this type of situation on the road. Those days seem so long ago.

  • Paul RK

    play for OT….

  • 6 ring circus

    Went backwards in the superbowl, too. Here we go.

  • #7

    Good lord this line stinks. That’s why this offense is where it is at the moment

  • Darth Blount 47

    Way to be alert, Ben!

  • WreckIess

    He can, but they’ve only thrown three passes to wideouts today. Just not very many opportunities.

  • nikki stephens

    lloked like delay – whew

  • Douglas Andrews

    Jack of all position..master of none. Sums up Hubbard

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Kind of feel bad for the Browns. They were favored on the road for the first time in 3 years (from what I heard) and are down 10 to the Colts right now.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    why wasnt the clock stopped after bell just went out? 40 seconds wasted for nothing.

  • Nolrog

    There’s usually about half a heartbeat between the clock hitting 0 and the refs throwing the flag.

  • #7

    Ben needs to be OC

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bell needs to get mad. And actually play like it.

  • nikki stephens

    geez one on one bell…..can’t get more than 1 yd!

  • dany

    Nice, I missed his leaps

  • alevin16

    middle of field

  • beermonkey

    only stops in the last 5 minutes. been the rule for a few years

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Need this

  • jsteeler

    Ben is bad on 3rd downs

  • Paul RK

    and 3 and out…..

  • alevin16

    you needed 6 and you go for 16

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I know it’s early in the season, but it’s notable that if we win and Houston can pull it out in NE, then we’ll be 2 games up on NE and 1 on Baltimore.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    4:30 to 3:50 clock was running when bell was already outside.

  • nikki stephens

    so sick like everyone else of the 4wr empty back sets

  • alevin16

    please bring it back

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    You’re missing the point, I’m not trying to bash on haden. The whole d has looked bad.

  • DAWAARE

    ben u suuuuck

  • Darth Blount 47

    Block in the back….. bring it back!

  • alevin16

    whew

  • John Noh

    MVP for the Stillers – zebras

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Well here we go. Leaving the game up to the defense

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    If Markus Wheaton catches a long pass to win it I will puke

  • Paul RK

    only 3 games in and the way the Steelers are playing it will be a VERY long season….

  • Rick Lenzi

    Ben one trick pony

  • beermonkey

    Ah. Missed that. Damn this game is flying.

  • alevin16

    well D we need another glennon turnover. is that too much to ask?

  • ayub

    I’ll eat my pants.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    LOLLLLL

  • dany

    Either Glennon will go 3 and out or will lead the comeback all the way, there’s no in between

  • NinjaMountie

    Lets go D….get us the ball one more time.

  • Agustin-ARG

    Big Ben: road game mode

  • Applebite

    Can’t get any luckier than that

  • nikki stephens

    sadly no truer statement

  • Rob

    thank goodness

  • Rick Lenzi

    BRown Brown Brown Brown no other receivers

  • Darth Blount 47

    That must be one amazing trick to have 2 Super Bowl rings.

  • Nolrog

    Are you wearing pants? Are they edible pants?

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Was that another 3 and out?

  • #7

    Right. Bring in Hanratty

  • ayub

    It’s like the steelers have no smoothness to their offense. Either deep or run. No short stuff, screens, etc.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Essentially

  • Michael Conrad

    Ben wants to do what he wants to do . I say time to retire. I had enough of selfish football.

  • NinjaMountie

    with a holding penalty to kick itoff

  • alevin16

    you cannot tell me no one else was open

  • Taylor Williams

    Yes, so the offense could screw up again.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Alright Defense lets go!

  • Kevin Schwartz

    2-0, still with a good shot at going 3-0. I’ll take it.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Yoi, that’s got to be a first

  • Darth Blount 47

    Oh, no… POSITIVE THOUGHTS ONLY, Beav!!!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    apparently so did the refs, tomlin, the league.

  • Zarbor

    Its Ben, you should know this…

  • WreckIess

    Back to where we were last season. Brown is the only viable reciever.

  • Grant Humphrey

    6 yards Ben that’s all we needed. No no throw it to Brown who’s double covered again.

  • nikki stephens

    back to complaint on these empty back sets, allows all defenders to key in on ben. No threat on draw, no threat or responsibility to watch or follow bell if he slides out….totally makes offense one dimensional. IT SUCKS

  • Paul RK

    we’re desperate for a quick 3 and out by CHI

  • Douglas Andrews

    I have to disagree. I think Ben looks for AB only

  • Applebite

    Haley always seem to forget the TE when things get tight. Put some faith in James and McDonald.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Slants to Bryant.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Better yet, pick 6. Will Gay! Book it.

  • Michael Conrad

    Hunter better be active next week and bring up Tucker from the practice squad.

  • Steve Johnson

    Every Damm Time! It’s like he thinks that’s the only WR on the field!

  • nikki stephens

    it is not like Bell isn’t gifted enough to chip and still go out in a safety valve route…one on one w/ LB

  • WreckIess

    Bryant has had some bad drops today. Juju isn’t getting a lot of separation either.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Blink and you’ll miss a Steelers offensive drive.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Need Vince Williams to THUMP!

  • alevin16

    JJ Wilcox we need you

  • Zarbor

    TE? How about Eli Rogers!

  • Rob

    Or Nix?? Haley is a talent black hole sometimes

  • Douglas Andrews

    But there’s been plays where both guys were open and Ben forces deep ball after deep ball

  • Zarbor

    Exactly. Just horrific.

  • alevin16

    it looks like on the blocked FG Grimble blocked the wrong guy

  • Applebite

    Need to stop Howard one more time

  • Michael Mosgrove

    bad defense there.

  • Steeldog22

    The return of Bennie Cunningham.

  • Paul RK

    SAD !!

  • Dorian James

    Gameday app is unreliable I need a status report guys who has the ball and where is it

  • Michael Mosgrove

    if we lose by a fg ima flip.

  • Clutterbox

    Steelers please start covering up the drop off

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    3rd and long. Dangerous

  • Michael Martin

    Put Deebo in. Need the holds to blatant.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    howard howard howard howard. 35 ish. 2 minutes to go.

  • Jason

    Steelers are about to get Glennon’d again

  • WilliamSekinger

    WTH is with the back all alone in the middle of the field all game long?

  • Taylor Williams

    Defense played well enough

  • Darth Blount 47

    2nd and 1. Bears Ball. 2 minute warning. Ball on the Bears 34.

  • Agustin-ARG

    Butler conservative?

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    More check downs pls

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben needs to watch Glennon on 3rd down

  • ND_Steel

    dumb timeout

  • alevin16

    YES

  • StraubStark

    Glennon is a Steeler killer. wtf

  • #7

    Maybe someone should cover that back over the middle? Just a thought

  • dany

    Glennon’s been here before, this is hilarious

  • nikki stephens

    sorry chickillo looks out of gas and wonder if porter even knows?

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Stupid. We’ll probably lose on a FG

  • Rob

    No completed passes have been 10 or more yards pass the line of scrimmage..im almost certain

  • Paul RK

    Tomlin and Haley are Steeler killers…..

  • NinjaMountie

    Yeah…I guess we don’t cover those pesky RBs

  • DAWAARE

    steelers lose by 3
    season over
    we goin 2-14
    fire tomlin, haley, colbert
    and draft new qb thx

  • Darth Blount 47

    Anybody have Harrison playing ZERO snaps?! Cause that’s what it seems like.

  • dany

    It used to be cool players like Fred Taylor, now we get this skinny sucky QB

  • Nunya

    Someone tell the D.C. It’s ok to make an adjustment if the same play is killing you over and over again….

  • alevin16

    no i saw him on one play

  • Darth Blount 47

    We just drafted a QB tho……

    And he’s a brainiac.

  • Rick Lenzi

    He wasn’t always that way has but lately anytime it is third and something he looks Brown,

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    get ready

  • Zarbor

    Not the Steelers way….Just unbelievable.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I’ve seen him in. If I had to guess i’d say for about 5 snaps so far.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Well sweet baby Jesus.

  • WilliamSekinger

    VW thumped.

  • HopeHarveys

    Get the darn turnover!

  • Romel Roze

    More like it is on poor QB play.

  • T-51b

    He used to go to Heath a lot on 3rd down, or a dump off to Bell

  • Paul RK

    hold’em and hope for OT

  • Nunya

    2 turnovers Just missed…bad omen…
    Make that 3

  • HopeHarveys

    Opportunity knocks…

  • Darth Blount 47

    Wilcox tried to pick it up and didn’t fall on it! DUMB.

  • Applebite

    That would’ve been game

  • NinjaMountie

    No breaks for us lol

  • Jason

    they are trying to give it away and nobody on the Steelers wants it

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Mitchell has bricks for hands lol

  • dany

    oh mitch..

  • WilliamSekinger

    Why is Harrison 20 yards down the field? On the sideline?

  • Ike Evans

    When you don’t draft guys that are playmakers in defense

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Jesus lol

  • alevin16

    how was that not holding. The steeler spun around

  • Applebite

    He’s Lee Flower reincarnate

  • dany

    lol they’re still gonna win aren’t they

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    there are way to many rules …but yes that was holding

  • Clutterbox

    Should have Brown back there.

  • Darth Blount 47

    That was holding against Chick. No call. Silly.

  • Nunya

    I don’t like that timeout unless you are actually planning on airing the ball out when you get it back. There will not be a return here.

  • ND_Steel

    dangerous…Chi all 3 TOs

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    AB returns punt for TD. BOok it

  • dany

    they should go for it really

  • John Noh

    Oh boy…here we go.

  • Chad Sanborn

    i have a full book of nothings

  • alevin16

    hey ben how about trying someone else who is not 84 who may not be triple covered

  • DAWAARE

    pick 6

  • Paul RK

    go deep and hope for completion or Pass Interference

  • Applebite

    St. Boswell for 3 pts….

  • Douglas Andrews

    Defensive lineman Takedown

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    now the shuffle

  • Darth Blount 47

    52 seconds to glory……

  • Romel Roze

    This is a dumpster fire….omg.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Who wants to win this game?

  • Nolrog

    I just want to know who forgot to tell the Bears that this was an automatic loss.

  • ND_Steel

    Why Matt?

  • Zarbor

    It would have only make logically sense to have AB return this one but nope.

  • L Garou

    Yeah the da Bears are playing hard, but error after error after error makes them look waaay better than they are..

  • Douglas Andrews

    Here comes some bad clock management lol

  • Romel Roze

    Which makes him a liability

  • alevin16

    now you have to bomb it to 10

  • Agustin-ARG

    I´m done…go for it deep

  • Nolrog

    Error after error, 3 weeks in a row. Maybe this is who we are. . . .

  • nikki stephens

    28 seconds and 13 yards…

  • Nunya

    Why waste a timeout before the damn punt and then run a cheesy screen and waste a damn play!!!!!

  • alevin16

    ot it is

  • Darth Blount 47

    Me…Me… Me!

  • nikki stephens

    OT

  • Nolrog

    This is going OT. NE driving on Houston. That game looks interesting.

  • Applebite

    ridiculous

  • Michael Conrad

    Three man rush gets home.

  • Chad Sanborn

    maybe we are no better

  • #7

    It’s kinda better to lose the OT toss these days…unless of course you give up a first possession TD

  • Smitty 6788

    AV is playing some really bad football..

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben got jacked in the face after the play. Apparently that’s legal.

  • Clutterbox

    I might think about kicking it.

  • L Garou

    LOL, three man rush..

  • Douglas Andrews

    Embarrassing

  • alevin16

    and ne pulls it out again

  • MP

    Thank god for this message board so I can vent.

  • Rob

    Finney and AV vs 1 guy..at some point you have to realize that these players you regard so highly are not as good as you think

  • Sdale

    Pats just went up

  • NinjaMountie

    I’ll take a win in overtime

  • Chad Sanborn

    i saw that. no flag.

  • Paul RK

    Patriots WINNING !!

  • nikki stephens

    silly darth, ben always has to be hit 3 times (at minimum) before he gets a call – PF. We watched the way they call these for years. Meanwhile, in NE houston is called for roughing passer as houston DE winks as he passes brady – PF 1st down patriots!

  • Zarbor

    Yeah, I’ve seen enough. Time to move on.

  • NinjaMountie

    communication is big

  • Nolrog

    What a surprise, NE TD. Up 34-33, with the point coming.

  • Nunya

    Houston Just did what they do…😂😂😂😂

  • Paul RK

    AV is average at best

  • Douglas Andrews

    I see us wining this one in OT but Steelers need to get it together on the O Line

  • dany

    Hey we could have a tie in our hands. Better than the L

  • Agustin-ARG

    Glennon winning drive here we go

  • Jason

    and NE comes back to win

  • Michael Mosgrove

    didnt stop a 3rd and 5 in the red zone.

  • Chad Sanborn

    ot

  • NinjaMountie

    we never win the toss

  • L Garou

    C’mon man! It’s always heads! duh.

  • WilliamSekinger

    You know we shoot the messenger on this board! J/k

  • Clutterbox

    Bears offense consist of run to the left and dump off to RB.
    Occasionally throw bad to the TE.

  • dany

    I mean cause it’s only 10 minutes OT

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Is DAve Bryan going to start an overtime thread?

  • Douglas Andrews

    Is there going to be an Overtime game thread to vent if the Steelers lose?

  • NinjaMountie

    I feel a turnover coming and we get the ball on their side of the field. I’m praying anyway.

  • Grant Humphrey

    Keith Butler can’t figure that one out

  • HopeHarveys

    Two perfect bounces to Bears on ST turnovers today.

  • NinjaMountie

    we did get that fumble that wasn’t

  • Michael Mosgrove

    defense has to come up with stop.

  • Paul RK

    come on D – 3 and out !!

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Win or lose I can’t wait until this game is over.

  • Rob

    Bud with the shed forced that inside

  • Sdale

    BLock in the back

  • alevin16

    figures

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahahahahahahaha what a joke

  • Douglas Andrews

    Let’s go Defense

  • Michael Cunningham

    lost the coin toss
    Karma …

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Dee Evolution

    That was holding on the outside

  • Rob

    wow

  • HopeHarveys

    He’s not out of bounds on that.

  • Applebite

    <.< Wolf called it

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Very sad.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    LOL

  • nikki stephens

    if he is out of bounds better be pf for throwing helmet

  • Steelers12

    U were saying, Jesus that’s awful

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Mitchell is bad. Dunno why people still debate that.

  • HopeHarveys

    Did the whistle blow?

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    thats terrible……mike mitchel geeez….

  • dany

    Gotta admit, they deserve that win man!

  • Steve Johnson

    Remarkable!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    there was about 4 missed tackles.

  • nikki stephens

    also BLATANT hold on run on #25 I think

  • ayub

    Like a script to a western, you know the good guys, bad guys, and the ending.

  • RJ

    Hows that not a hold on haden?

  • Jeff Papiernik

    It was very obvious, idk how they missed that

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Good for the Bears

  • Phil Brenneman II

    I definitely saw a hold as well.

  • beermonkey

    Straight up hold

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Right lol

  • Michael Mosgrove

    bud, vince, mitchell and davis.

  • Mrs Bighead

    There was a clear hold on that play

  • alevin16

    the bears will be destroyed next week. Every poor team that beats us blows their load and gets destroyed next

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    Steelers thank god i wont have to deal with torture anymore

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Still in first place!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Called out of bounds, they cant overturn it based on those replays

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Mitchells is so bad though because he has the sideline. He did that last game too. His awareness sucks along with his tackling.

  • Steve Johnson

    What is new?

  • dany

    give it to them seriously, they would just march on to win anyway. RUn game wins

  • Paul RK

    who cares !! the Steelers lost THIS game !!

  • nikki stephens

    that’s what I was screaming

  • LucasY59

    shouldve thrown a flag for a hold on the edge to start with…

  • Nolrog

    I said it the other day, when people really got on me and called me out.

    This was a trap game, and I didn’t like it from the get go. Tomlin’s teams play poorly on the road against teams they should beat.

    People going this is an automatic victory, and we’ll beat them easily are exactly why I was worried.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Guaranteed not getting overturned

  • Kevin Schwartz

    His heel looks like it’s on the line.

  • Mrs Bighead

    They don’t care, this is their Super bowl

  • Douglas Andrews

    Yeah i though I saw a hold too

  • Agustin-ARG

    pathetic and conservative performance

  • Sdale

    Right in front of the ref too. How do you not call it when it’s the only way he was able to get the edge. Pathetic.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Trap games are trap games

  • Bastiat

    Artie Burns was tackled on that play.

  • HopeHarveys

    It’s NOT OVER!

  • NinjaMountie

    gotta hold them to a fg

  • Chad Sanborn

    can we all agree that this team is horribly coached on both sides of the ball and something needs to change

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    I should’ve counted on a loss here. Until this team shows me they won’t play down to the competition, I shall expect them to.

  • alevin16

    steelers do not deserve this game

  • Zarbor

    You can’t throw a flag on a hold that was not called.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    …Flashbacks

  • HopeHarveys

    Clete Blakeman makes the winner’s list.

  • Nolrog

    What are they reviewing?

  • Steel Realist PAul

    This was not a trap game. The Steelers just are nowhere near their potential at the moment and got beat.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Got a lucky break

  • Steelers12

    Rex Ryan needs to be defensive coordinator period

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    still hitting him high

  • Roberto Vaquero Bazán

    What Is The point?

  • Rob S.

    Absolutely inexcusable that you let that hold go on the end of the line?

  • Nolrog

    I didn’t count them to lose, but I didn’t think it was an automatic win either.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    stupid

  • Applebite

    Bears got away with a hold on Haden….

  • WilliamSekinger

    Dont get me started on bad calls. The refs gave them 3 points at the emd of the half. Half should have been over on a touchback.

  • Steelers12

    Why do players not wrap up anymore

  • Kevin Schwartz

    There we go.

  • gentry_gee

    Congrats Bears. Great run to win it. All hustle. Steelers truly do stink. Especially on offense. Time to fire somebody.

  • alevin16

    getting away with a lot of holds

  • nikki stephens

    where is james

  • Gautam Ramani

    Horrible run defense –

  • NinjaMountie

    because then we get the ball

  • Paul RK

    union rules prevent contact practices !!

  • Agustin-ARG

    OMG Burns

  • LucasY59

    i know, but thats the mistake regardless of out of bounds or not

  • beermonkey

    makeup for the missed hold?

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    i wish i knew bro

  • Rick Lenzi

    chickalo has not held the edge once

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    How were we not prepared for the run game?

  • gentry_gee

    The Steelers are not ready for prime time. Their offense sucks.

  • alevin16

    let me guess the bears will run

  • dany

    they’re just gaaassed

    insult to injury right now

  • NinjaMountie

    wow…can’t stop the run

  • DAWAARE

    arti burns

  • Nunya

    dang…this is usually a Steelers bar and everyone here is full blown against them today. Screaming things like “stay in the Locker room you, ——-. Nasty!

  • nikki stephens

    So f in sick of this mike tomlin coaching – f in PRO BOWLER against run and he sits as wwe get gashed!

  • Gautam Ramani

    Frustrating game. Where is the offense??

  • Douglas Andrews

    Yeah what the heck was that

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Funny. They have like 7 straight national games coming up

  • Mrs Bighead

    Don’t deserve to win but don’t deserve to lose on a missed call either

  • Paul RK

    Bears 220 yards rushing today

  • Rob

    gap integrity the last two plays was trash.. you can’t push into the backfield and vacate your gap or else the back will cutback

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Disgusting on all sides of the football. Out coached and out played.

  • alevin16

    absolutely deserved to lose

  • DAWAARE

    put in james harrisonn plzzz

  • RJ

    The rushing defense is sickening. I don’t know who to blame, but this is pathetic.

  • Nolrog

    Just prolonged the agony.

    Gave up 220 yards rushing. Not going to win many games that way.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    that had to be the most uninspiring game i have watched in a long time

  • Agustin-ARG

    Worst positive record team

  • Big White

    Way to go Rooneys, Tomlin, Brass. Team not focused, worried about political stunts. Jerks

  • melblount

    F&CK this team.

  • Nolrog

    Everyone.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    25-24 vs sub 500 times.

    2 losses to mike damn glennon.

  • Zarbor

    Bears have rushed for over 200 yards!!! How about LeVeon, Mr. 15 million dollar man?

  • WilliamSekinger

    OMG, I just saw my team totally give up and let him walk into the end zone

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    STEELERS GAVE UP

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahahahaha incredibly bad game. Next week we will be 2-2 after losing to the ravens and will be wondering what happened

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Aaaaaaaand another bad angle from Mitchell. Wonder if Alex will have him on the losers list. He usually cuts him slack.

  • LucasY59

    holding again…

  • alevin16

    mike glennon does not win another game

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Great performance.

  • Applebite

    With the way the Steelers played, can’t be shocked at all.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Well that’s what these clowns get for not honoring the anthem.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Give them a break, it’s hot

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Hopefully Tomlin whips some ass in the locker room

  • dany

    They actually embarassed the steelers by changing the call

  • Rick Lenzi

    chickalo killed them

  • mhurk

    Dam , I wish We had runningbacks like that, instead of Our overpaid Diva.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Wow, that was sad…

  • D. Jay Cervino

    Nope

  • Big White

    James Harrison great vs run, nowhere to be found

  • NinjaMountie

    Some serious questions to answer when a team runs on you like the bears did.

  • Joseph Shaw

    Admittedly a hot take, but I’m beginning to question everything I thought about this team. That was just painful to watch.

  • Chris92021

    Yep, that was what I expected.

  • Rick Lenzi

    hot out come on hot for both teams and harrison didn’t see the field

  • Douglas Andrews

    Good block…Trent Green are you blind!!!!

  • ryan72384

    Lol

  • LucasY59

    Refs biggest losers today…

  • DAWAARE

    why not put in harrison instead of chickillo
    tomlin f urself

  • Grant Humphrey

    Artie definitely wasn’t held on that play.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Disappointing. Ravens lost too. Get to together for next week

  • HopeHarveys

    Defense had nothing left.

  • Nunya

    And once again, a Tomlin team does what a Tomlin team does against a bad team on the road!

  • Bastiat

    This team played pathetically. Having said that, there was so many non holding penalties I am speechless.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Putrid performance, top to bottom.

  • nikki stephens

    MULTIPLE HOLDS

  • RJ

    So it had nothing to do with not tackling, poor gap assignments, turnovers, bad 3rd down conversion rate?

  • Matt Hatchett

    He has sucked for years. No true player respects him.

  • Steelers12

    Damn u a cry baby… Its a damn song let it go😂😂😂

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    this loss honestly did not hurt at all

  • Edjhjr

    I’d like to be the first to congratulate the Steelers offense for being a notch or 2 above pathetic

  • Big White

    Correct. Not focused.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Eli Rogers can get lost btw

  • WilliamSekinger

    Its ok though cause Bell feels like he is very close to breaking one any moment now.

  • Roberto Vaquero Bazán

    Not really, this is not a trend, its a fact that The Steelers gave away games against lower teams

  • HopeHarveys

    Glennon 101 yards and a win.

  • Edjhjr

    Ok one notch

  • melblount

    Just another miserable performance by a Mike Tomlin coached team that will haunt us all season long, until we lose an AWAY playoff game.

    On the bright side, I’m sure we learned a lot in defeat.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    they played like sh@##, and they left Big Al on an island

  • Michael Cunningham

    Well Tomlin
    You made your statement alright
    Karma’s a b****

  • MP

    What an embarrassment

  • Joseph Shaw

    No excuse for Harrison not playing more. Just makes no sense.

  • Rob

    And for anyone still blaming this on the protest. Grow up and move on.

  • Michael Conrad

    I agree to worried about injustice. I think its an injustice Tomlin still has a job.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    Screw them

  • Dorian James

    No Pride whatsoever. I don’t want to hear any excuses by the media or the bloggers about this loss. Straight embarrassing!!!!!!

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Yeah they were too focused on making a statement to focus on those things you just mentioned

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I don’t think the season is over – still doesn’t change the fact that we shouldn’t have just given up three 15+ yard runs in overtime.

  • Douglas Andrews

    One thing we learned today Big White is Chick has some real issues against the run

  • Rob S.

    Thanks offense, can’t even put up 20 points to win a game. Say what you want about the defense, and they definitely crapped the bed a few times today, but they put this team in a position to win the ball game with competent offense.

  • Simon Cutts

    Everytime they ran left Chickillo just ran to the side line leaving a massive lane to run thro. Never set the edge once!

  • NinjaMountie

    Im kinda happy we lost the game now. With the Ravens losing so badly they’ll be pumped. Now maybe we will too. I could live with 3-1 after next week.

  • nikki stephens

    screaming all day mike f in tomlin the moron saw that side was being REAMED all day and he let’s a guy who holds the edge BETTER THAN ANYONE. Yet HE SITS

  • Mrs Bighead

    Had hopes of 13-3, it’ll be 10-6 or 11-5 again

  • Applebite

    TBH, I’m not shocked by Jordan Howard’s performance. The man came out of Indiana a beast. The Bears saw what I saw. Hard to not count on him. But that Cohen…who was checking for him?

  • Bill

    where are the great 4 Bs?

  • WilliamSekinger

    But can you live with 2-2 after next week? Cause the Steelers are on the road again.

  • Roberto Vaquero Bazán

    Sucking big

  • Randy

    Great Superbowl team performance

  • melblount

    Mike Tomlin is re-writing the definition of STOOPID.

  • Zarbor

    Here comes Mike T. and players praising of the Bears….Get ready to hear how they look like the 85 Bears from these clowns.

  • RJ

    Uninspired football at it’s finest.

  • Joseph Shaw

    I’m glad it ended that way. We had no business winning that game.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Mike Tomlin and Todd Haley are NOT good coaches. They finally get weapons and still cant manage a win. I saw BAD tackling. Bad play calling. Bad player decisions/mistakes.
    All equal a badly undisciplined team in need if a leader and none is to be found.

  • DAWAARE

    yup ravens will murder steelers next week

  • Matt Hatchett

    We learn to get our ass out there and stand like man with our hand on heart for the National Anthem!

  • NinjaMountie

    I wouldn’t like that much, no.

  • Joseph Shaw

    Just another team. Nothing special here.

  • nikki stephens

    your a moron, JH has one of the least YPC on his side – proven. If you wanna say he lost some rush ability, fine, but against the run – pro bowler

  • WreckIess

    The refs have to call that hold on the Haden run. It’s not like it was on the other side of the f’in field or something. It was literally right there

  • Paddy

    THIS IS WHY THEY END UP IN BOSTON FOR THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIP

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    After they just got murdered by the Jags LOL okay

  • Steelers12

    Players all around the league kneeled. U sound like a clown

  • T-51b

    No way in hell this squad beats New England.

  • Chad Weiss

    Pass defense looked GREAT today!!

  • melblount

    Winners: Nobody.

    Losers: Everybody.

  • WreckIess

    *Cohen run

  • WeWantDaTruth

    Very disappointing, yet not unexpected result based on Tomlin’s penchant for playing down to the competition. James Harrison has always been solid against the run, yet never sees the field???

  • Roberto Vaquero Bazán

    Tomlin is a Joke and his team is and Will be until he stays in Pittsburgh

  • Steelers12

    Players from every team sitting

  • Dorian James

    Brother you have my word they will not make the AFC Championship Game this year

  • Jaybird

    There was 10 yards between Chickillo and Heyward like 15 times today. Was that all Chicks fault? No sh*t , I could have ran through those holes. It had to be more than Chick, although I thought he was terrible. D line, LBs, safeties all sucked.

  • Zarbor

    LOL….they didn’t really have to.

  • Agustin-ARG

    Every year the f….. same

  • Michael Conrad

    While I’m glad DHB dressed instead of Hunter . I think Tomlin should be inactive next week oh wait he was inactive this week.

  • Still Waters

    I’m really bummed the Steelers lost today, in about 30 seconds I’ll be over it… wait, yep, over it. HaHa, for all you weenies that need a life, enjoy this one, stew in it, fire everybody, oh wait, you’re in the basement at mom’s. Does Madden let you fire everybody?
    Bbbbwahahahaha.

  • Rocksolid20

    Agree , where are all the Tomlin koolaid drinkers .
    Tell me about our great coach , how we are going to destroy the Bears .
    This is an every year thing , playing down in games that should be wins !
    Come on out guys don’t hide now or I’ll start listing names .

  • newguy68

    pathetic showing. Really terrible performance.

  • Douglas Andrews

    They’ll come ready to play next week but once they hit the road against a lesser opponent this team we saw today will show up again.

  • WeWantDaTruth

    Didn’t seem to affect the Jags today.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Muffed fumble and Bryant’s drop keep replaying in my head

  • DAWAARE

    jarvis jones was good against the run lol

  • Michael Cunningham

    actions have consequences bro ..
    watch and learn

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Man, it would have been really nice to go a game up on the Ravens.

  • Randy

    Contract extension in the horizon for the coaches

  • Michael Conrad

    10 and 6 first round lost in playoffs

  • julian

    same old steelers. losing to trash teams. 17 points against the bears is unacceptable. they have not played well all year and it finally came to a head

  • Mrs Bighead

    He was good at falling on people whenever they were on their way down

  • Chad Sanborn

    As I said the last 2 weeks, we didn’t win games, the other teams lost them. We were 2-0 because we got lucky breaks not because we were good. Today proves it when the luck ran out and all that was left was the play on the field.

  • melblount

    We get the ball with 5+ minutes left at our 37, needing a FG to win, and we can’t get a first down.

    Hate ain’t a strong enough word for this crap.

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    I hang this on the offense. They’re not carrying their weight. Only scored 17 with supposed potent offense?

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m going to write the Winners and Losers:
    Winners: AB…cause he’s AB
    Losers: Everyone else.

  • Michael Conrad

    Ravens are going to crush them.

  • RJ

    The 1/2 tackle king

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    Once again, AB and Shazier came to play. Where was everyone else?

  • NinjaMountie

    200 yds rushing surrendered. Nope….this one is equal parts

  • Douglas Andrews

    Can’t be any worse than Chickillo. That was pathetic

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    They should have just let the game end with Cohen’s run.

  • julian

    this amazing offense has not scored more than 2 tds in a game yet

  • Joseph Shaw

    Wait–you’re the cool one for trolling on a message board? Gotcha.

  • Jaybird

    Put Haden on the winners list . The guy has played pretty well for three weeks now.

  • Bill

    I guess Ben needs to strive for “perfection” rather than just “improvement”.

  • Michael Cunningham

    and AV
    only one who had the guts to stand up for his country

  • 太阳三联

    There was tons of holds on him that they weren’t calling all game tho

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    To be fair shazier wasnt all that good either.

  • Eddie Cruz

    This is emberrasing. First we stay in the locker room to avoid the national anthem. They should have never come on the field. They should have avoided coming out altogether. Only reason it was even close is because the bears recievers are Terrible

  • melblount

    Shazier is all or nothing. For every great play, there’s an equally bad whiff.

  • Didi makes me Euphorius (J.C.)

    He made a lot of great plays

  • NinjaMountie

    Can’t put anyone on from a D that gave up 200 yd rushing

  • Mrs Bighead

    Looks like a Tommy Maddox offense

  • Applebite

    Bell dropped the sure TD…not focused enough on winning, too interested in IG Thots. Tomlin needs a Come to Jesus moment with these guys. This offense is totally out of gear.

  • melblount

    Um, did they come out?

  • NinjaMountie

    This is about football, not politics.

  • Michael Conrad

    Got run over like a groundhog.

  • melblount

    Period.

  • Chad Sanborn

    this team isn;t beating anyone. maybe the browns again…maybe

  • Michael James

    Pathetic all around. Prepare for a season where making the playoffs comes down to the last few games again and if they make the playoffs, prepare for another spanking @NE.
    Chickillo should not start period. He’s beyond terrible against the run. The offense is a sh*tshow all around, Bell nowhere near his old self, Ben still not taking the easy first downs that are there, instead going for a splash play and then there are the special teams…
    I won’t talk about the refs, horrible, just horrible, but the Steelers blew this one. It should have never come down to the Refs being in the position to influence the outcome of the game. Glennon did nothing all game. Zero, nada, and the Bears still won. Utterly unbelievable.

  • Zarbor

    I’m glad they loss. Team has been coasting for weeks….especially on offense. As much as people want to be upset with the defense, holding them to 17 points in regulation should be an easy win with this soo called top flight offense.

    You hold a team to 17 points, you should win in the NFL if you have any type of offense. Haley, Ben and that offense with all that talent is a failure of EPIC proportions.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    I’m allowed to speak my mind. Deal with it.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    And a lot of bad. When a team runs on you like that mlb isnt doing his job. Or any linebackers, or defenseive linemen…

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    yep

  • DAWAARE

    offense sucks ass
    run d sucked but Defense did give O chance to win
    numerous times.
    Ben suuuuuuuckssss

  • NinjaMountie

    At least the new Star Trek premiers tonight.

  • kyle broflovski

    The defense will be better when Watt and Tuitt gets back, but that offense sucks! 17 million for Bell? Hell no! AB is the only worth a damn on that offense.

  • Axel

    Haden was flat out tackled on Cohens run. Burns was held on the TD run and yet no f**king call. Then again if the offense actually showed up the game never would have went to OT…….

  • heath miller

    where are the 30 points per game .. 14 26 17 … my ravens game prediction 7-0 ravens .. our O sucks…. our D sucks… their O sucks.. their D wins the game with a pick 6 .. our team has no emotion .. they should have stayed in the locker room after the national anthem … no emotion at all .. i think ben has already retired

  • Joseph Shaw

    This.

  • melblount

    Every year the same HC.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    The defense has carried the offense when the offense is far more talented. Thats the point. The offense cant stay on the field so the defense is worn out by thend of the game. The offense has barely done anything.

  • melblount

    And how much we learned. Deja vu all over again.

  • E Chsldn

    Steelers got what they deserved, didn’t watch when I found out what they were doing during the anthem. They and the NFL can go to h***. Plus most intelligent people know alot of these games have a predetermined outcome! Lol , plus the guy with the William and Mary platitude coached down to the competition again.

  • Lucious Myers

    They struggle to eat the texans I think we will be find.

  • heath miller

    why? we dont deserve to be a game up on anybody but the bungals

  • 6 ring circus

    I served, you are wrong. This was just a game. Learn about life’s issues and you will be a better personStaying in the locker room had 0 to do with it.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Offense really needs to get someone other than AB going. Not sure what’s happening with Bell but they need the running game to improve asap.

  • Timothy Rea

    On the road.. blatant holds.. ball rolling into the end zone for a touchback.. nope after telling the teams it was end of the half bring them back for another shot. Officiating was total dog crap. Does any of them know what holding is? You can push a guy but tackling a guy so your player can run 90 yards downfield? I want to take this game.. roll it into a ball.. and flush it down a toilet

  • NinjaMountie

    I’d agree, but they ran on us from the start.

  • Jamie P

    Good luck to all in the future. Cancelled my Sunday ticket. I didn’t realize the Steelers were also protesting against work ethic and a quality performance..AB excluded

  • melblount

    That’s beyond dumb.

  • Zarbor

    Wow, you folks actually have the guts to mention Jarvis Binks? Get yourself together man. The defense gave up 17 points in the whole game. As much as we may want to blame the defense, it was the offense that loss this game.

  • Chris92021

    This is an inconsistent team because our QB is day and night with his home/road splits. This team is bound to lose to New England in the playoffs again because they lack the discipline.

    BTW Anthony Chickillo is a rotation guy only. He is not a starter. Why James Harrison wasn’t out there again is a mystery.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Obviously we hid in our fears

  • Romel Roze

    It’s a wrap. Defense cannot stop a good running game and have no clue on a strategy to do so.

    Playing their safetys and CBs way back when the Bears showed zero ability to throw the ball. ALL THEY DID WAS RUN and the Steelers defensive alignment was playing like they were getting killed by the pass all day….truely UNBELIEVABLE.

    NO wonder we can’t beat the Patriots….coaching staff is idiotic.

    Then throw in an inept QB on the road (can only play at home) and you have a team that is an average team that has to play its A game to beat anyone.

    This team just is not good. They are what they have shown us they are….average.

    Average QB play and average coaching.

  • Joseph Shaw

    You’ll be back.

  • Jaybird

    See ya man.

  • heath miller

    how can you look at that game and find 2 plays to replay .. i can replay about 40 O and 40 D plays … they didnt come to win . they had no emotion .. zero zip dada … 30 points a game hahahh

  • NinjaMountie

    yup.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Well it’s a good idea to save the money when it’s all online

  • melblount

    PLEASE don’t blame this on officiating.

  • Joseph Shaw

    You’ll be missed.

  • Dr. Watts

    I don’t understand how the same mistakes keep happening year after year, why do we not come prepared when playing terrible teams year after year. So damn frustrating

  • WreckIess

    The offense definitely has to step it up, but we win that game if they make that call. All ifs and buts now though…

  • Lucious Myers

    Talk to me after week 10 then I will over react after every Steelers win or loss.

  • Kevin Reich

    Did you not watch that last drive?

    Glad we lost today after that pathetic anthem charade.

    Villeneuava’s the only one I feel bad for.

    Karma’s a Bear.

  • DAWAARE

    this is what they get after staying in the locker room during the anthem.
    poor mindset.

  • Mrs Bighead

    This will be one of Chicago’s 3 wins this year

  • Reader783

    BLATANTLY out-coached today. As we ALWAYS are. No more defending Tomlin, Haley and Butler from me. Hot seats. This is a joke. This offense scoring 20 ppg? This defense allowing 200 yards rushing? This TEAM losing to the BEARS ??? Give me a break

  • Chad Sanborn

    Jags are actually a great team this year. 3-0 and playing solid on all fronts. They will make the playoffs i predict

  • S.T.

    Everything is politics, like it or not. I’m glad to know that the Steelers fan base has shed itself of every flag-blinded false patriot who took to Facebook to whinge about people having the nerve to exercise the freedoms afforded them by the Constitution. And, as an active duty service member, let me remind you all that the anthem DOES NOT represent the military–it represents the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, which is what all service members swear an oath to protect.

  • Steelers12

    And i am too and i said u sound like a clown. They lost to the better team today deal with it

  • NinjaMountie

    Karma cares about the anthem?

  • Jaybird

    13-3 guys relax. This is one of only three losses this year. BOOK IT !

  • Mrs Bighead

    There was a back breaking no call on a blatant hold in OT

  • Timothy Rea

    Last drive was 100% officiating. There is no reason not to call a hold on that long run. None.. zero.. zilch. Having these refs officiate another game after this.. should not happen.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Last I looked a team has both an offense and a defense. No, this loss is on the entire team. The defense gave up 200+ yards rushing, and the offense with the ball and 5 minutes remaining in the game could not even manage a first down.

  • melblount

    Have you even looked at the 2nd half schedule?

  • NinjaMountie

    Don’t talk sensible, Lucious! We don’t do that here lol

  • Jaybird

    13-3 Mel.

  • melblount

    I would be glad too if it meant Tomlin was shown the door.

  • Mrs Bighead

    No way. Ravens twice, Packers, Pats…10-6

  • NinjaMountie

    I actually think this loss may wake us up.

  • heath miller

    did u see scoreboard today . NE 36 houston 33 at NE they look very beatable .. everyone seems to score 30 against them .. hell the steelers might even get 30 if the D gets 2 pick 6s …. explosive offense .. my A$$

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    They were due for a drop in performance, they played above and beyond the first 2 games. All they needed was the offense to provide something, at least 20 points and they couldn’t. Thats inexcusable for this group. They haven’t done anything to help the defense and this time the D couldn’t save them.

  • Reader783

    Still an unacceptable loss. When the Pats go 14-2 and we have to go to NE for the AFCCG, we’ll be singing a different tune

  • Mrs Bighead

    Shouldn’t work like that

  • nikki stephens

    after your “book its” all day – I’m running away from anything your booking.

  • NinjaMountie

    We beat good team not named the pats

  • Douglas Andrews

    Officials weren’t good at all today. That personal foul on Cam questionable and all those missed holding calls for example at the end of game when the Bears guy was taking off Artie Burns Jersey geez

  • Steve

    Garbage. Offense can’t jell bc our star RB is a dope head and full of himself and our #2 WR is a dope head too. Defense has a bunch of young hot heads who fly around bnut can’t tackle. While Deebo sits on the sideline. Great coaching to top it off

  • melblount

    Great. We don’t even have to wait for the players and coaches to give us their “We learned a lot today” speeches.

  • Dr. Watts

    Honestly think we will crush the Ravens

  • heath miller

    lol they wont make the AFC championship game .. only reason hey will make the playoffs at all is because we are in a weak division and we will win that with a 9-7 record

  • S.T.

    2-1. Check the standings again.

  • WreckIess

    That was Karma? Because Jacksonville, who protested earlier today, surely didn’t get the memo. It’s almost like it had absolutely nothing to do with that.

  • Jaybird

    I got to get one of these F*ck*rs right eventually.
    Thanks for making me laugh bro.

  • Mrs Bighead

    It’s on the road which means we lose handily or barely win

  • 太阳三联

    So true. Called on us tho

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Ummm I am dealing with it? I’m glad they lost. They didn’t deserve a win, from their pre-game antics to their play on the field, they didn’t earn it today.

  • 太阳三联

    Holds on all of em

  • melblount

    The consistent inability to tackle is mind-numbing.

  • NinjaMountie

    It’s cool dude. You do your thing and I’ll do mine.

  • heath miller

    post of the year award

  • Jaybird

    O ye of little faith Mrs Bighead

  • heath miller

    we should have not even come out after the anthem… just leave the building …

  • DAWAARE

    chickillo is solid at pass rushing but
    today he was extremely poor at run defense during the entire game..
    I just dont understand why tomlin just kept chilkilo in instead of putting in harrison.
    did harrison rob him or something?

  • S.T.

    Save the fake outrage for the ESPN comment boards and Facebook. This site is for fans.

  • Dr. Watts

    Tuitt and T.J. should be back and the Ravens have no offensive line

  • heath miller

    total no emotion… ben has already retired in place

  • L Garou

    Punked in Chicago. Sounds about right..

  • Benchmark

    Clear blatant POINT SHAVING by the NFL. 2 plays after the half ended?
    Once the Bears False Started that should have ended Half. Offense doesn’t get second play.
    Steelers WIN! 17-14.

  • JohnB

    We always play the Packers well so that can go either way. Did you see the Ravens and the Pats today? they should be as worried as we (you) are.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Bell is done. He won’t be a steeler next year and will be out of the league in two years.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Physically…he has the body of a 28 year old. I don’t buy them resting him. He doesn’t need it

  • Buccos9

    Another classic “play down to the level of the competition” performance by a Mike Tomlin team. That was a complete meltdown on run defense for much of the game, and especially in overtime. I won’t be surprised if they lose to the Ravens next week, too. Yes, it’s only one game, but the Bears are a bad team. This loss was unacceptable. I don’t see the Steelers as legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

  • Carl Mendelius

    The Steelers again looked lost and unprepared even though they have very good, not great, players. Haley and Butler are not good coordinators, I want them out. Tomlin is not a very good coach, just good, only good.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    week 3 last yeas was the eagles. we lost then too. not impressed by this team right now.

  • Kevin Reich

    Offense run the ball. Then mix in passes. Get rid of the empty backfield crap especially in the red zone. 30 pts a game my ass.

  • 太阳三联

    *held us from the start

  • nikki stephens

    Thank you for stating the obvious and how wasn’t tomlin challenged just ONCE after this game in the presser. Even if you concede JH isn’t the pass rusher, he is top of the league as a run stuffer. Does tomlin make the adjustment? NO, so yes, he deserves BOAT LOADS of negative press! He deserves it and DC butthurt, too.

  • Dr. Watts

    Remember what we did to Kansas City after the Eagle’s game?

  • Steelmania

    For us that where at the SB in Dallas that is a stretch!

  • S.T.

    That’s what I was thinking. Isn’t there a reason they state that a game/half can’t end on a DEFENSIVE penalty?

  • Mrs Bighead

    We barely play Green Bay

  • JohnB

    …. WHAT?!

  • heath miller

    put me down for 9-7 .. division win because its the weakest diviision in FB .. and a fist round playoff loss where we score 17 or less points ..and this is the weak part of our schedule they said and we are averaging 19 points a game scored by the O

  • Romel Roze

    That is why Haley was brought in to get Ben to throw quicker passes in an effort to stop him from holding the ball too long.

    You cannot change this guy. He will always revert back to his backyard football ways. He is not an elite QB. Elite QB’s elevate the play of their teammates and can win on the road and at home.

    It is time the Steelers seriously look to find his replacement ASAP.

  • nikki stephens

    How wasn’t tomlin challenged just ONCE after this game in the presser about the non-use of JH.
    Even if you concede JH isn’t the pass rusher, he is top of the league
    as a run stuffer. Does tomlin make the adjustment? NO, so yes, he
    deserves BOAT LOADS of negative press! He deserves it and DC butthurt,
    too.

  • NinjaMountie

    If we’re going to run a B12 offense we should at least get a read option QB

  • Dr. Watts

    I have faith because this same bullshit happens ever year yet they play their asses off at the end of the year

  • S.T.

    Get over yourself.

  • NinjaMountie

    I’ve brought that up. There was also Miami game.

  • DAWAARE

    tomlin needs to focus on winning games instead of
    this whole trump protest circus.

    This team is no where close to pats, chiefs and falcons.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    25-24 to sub 500 teams. can we fire haley yet?

  • JohnB

    I know but when we do its always a good close game. Wallace catch at 0:00…the SuperBowl and the last game we played was close.

  • heath miller

    ravens will beat the steelers … probably 7 – 0 on a pick 6 by the ravens D.. they will play with a ton of emotion and the steelers will look like they are doing a walk through . maybe we need to face it .. the team is just not that good ..

  • Romel Roze

    I thought Bruce Arians was in Arizona.

  • mhurk

    I wonder if They cut Him would They still owe the Franchise Tag amount, or would it get prorated? I doubt He has any trade value right now.

  • Dr. Watts

    And you can say this sorta crap shouldn’t happen and this and that but it does and the Steelers still come to play in December

  • Mrs Bighead

    Seems like more of a Tomlin issue

  • Steelmania

    Did you forget the AFC Championship
    Game?

  • Rob S.

    Taking an optimistic view after 20 minutes of reflection at least it doesn’t count against tiebreakers in the AFC

  • NinjaMountie

    It wasn’t a protest. It was meant to avoid a protest

  • JohnB

    and we ended up in the AFCC…so maybe it is a wake up…*hope hope* haha.

  • Steeler Fanatic

    Look- this team has issues. All the Ben apologists need to take a hard look at 7. WHY ARE NOT FEEDING BELL AND GETTNG INTO A RHYTHM? Why are we throwing 20 yard routes and deep balls on third and short? Why is Tomlin calling timeout with 2:30 and give the Bears more time. Same issues- number 7 looks unprepared. His accuracy sucked. Gameplan was a joke.

  • JohnB

    which we got revenge for!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    bad play calling. thats haley.

  • Matt Hatchett

    He isn’t even good, slowly Cowhers staff is gone and his staff can’t get it done.

  • Jeff Papiernik

    Great, my brother served, and he agrees with me. Serving doesn’t make your opinion any more valuable than mine

  • Chad Sanborn

    sadly neither do we

  • heath miller

    all the talk about fans cant wait till the killer Bs all pay together .. well they just played 3 games together .. and the O scores 14 26 ad 17 points.. 19 point average …. the only team thats impressed with this the the freckin bungals … only guys with any emotion are AB McDonald (that guy never gave up when he was 10 yards behind and the guy was on the 1 foot line) and shazier..

  • NinjaMountie

    Was Ben under center at all that game?

  • Reader783

    defense wasn’t too hot today either. Nor the special teams. The entire coaching staff can take an L in this one, but this offense was supposed to be scoring 30 a game, right?

  • Dr. Watts

    The defense wasn’t prepared nor did it have Heyward, and Bell was out for basically the whole game. If we had Heyward the pass rush would have been better

  • S.T.

    Yes, he was. But remember that his success rate under center is much worse than his performance from the shotgun.

  • Romel Roze

    Haley is not a true professional. I knew something was off with this guy when he overslept or something like that and miss the team flight. His play calling is starting to get real old and he seems too lazy to adapt and up his game. When you do not continue to learn and improve you fade away.

  • NinjaMountie

    It seemed like the were in SG the whole time. That’s not going to cut it.

  • Steelmania

    Check the Steelers record against the Pats in Playoff Games having Hayward and Bell would have helped some but the Coaching under both Tomlin and Cowher against the Pats is horrible !

  • Mrs Bighead

    So bad play calling is the sole reason for all those losses?

  • Dr. Watts

    Ya I know I’m not saying they would have won but I think the game would have been closer

  • Michael Mosgrove

    most of them.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Villeneuava is the only man on that team. It was a terrible decision to stay in the tunnel and this team is now divided over it. If villeneuava had not have courage to stand alone, they would have been able to get away with it. He made them look bad.

  • Romel Roze

    And I am all for the teams execution….lol

    Total inept performance in all phases.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Probably two or three players on this team that were on that team

  • Dr. Watts

    No matter what happens at the end of the year Haley should be gone. Give Butler one more year

  • Steelmania

    Agree

  • Romel Roze

    I agree and when the Bears is only trying to run the ball and you are playing pass that is on the coaching staff.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Good for you! That is what I will do too.

  • mhurk

    Yea, play down to the competion, and get out coached, nothing new.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Just the two that stand out

  • Rob

    dude, you are so apparently so eager to quiet down any notion of critique of police and calls for race equality that you are blinded by the fact that staying in the locker room is about as neutral an act any team could possibly offer. So hate the team, the players, and never watch again bc your problem isn’t with the act of protest it is with the issues being protested..you won’t be missed

  • Steelmania

    Should have given Conner a few snaps – his power running style might have kept the Bears D honest!

  • Mrs Bighead

    Ben should’ve kept them honest by playing like a top 5 QB we claim him to be

  • Matt Hatchett

    That brilliant idea had to come from Tomlin. That was the worse idea to remain in the tunnel. Villeneuava had the courage to be a real man and stand alone!

  • JohnB

    Those were three examples from seperate years where players were different.

  • Dr. Watts

    I feel the defense played alright and eventually got wore down by the offense not being able to sustain drives, plus Howard and Cohen didn’t let up. Still inexcusable though. Great teams sometimes need one phase to step up when the other isn’t working out to win a game

  • Steelmania

    Yep Ben did not play well at all!

  • mhurk

    Coach T does not know how to use more than one RB in a game.

  • Reader783

    We shoulda been up 35-7, but the officials crushed us in this game. 1 holding call all game???? I saw at least 2 PER DRIVE.

  • Steeler Fanatic

    He is not a top 5 qb… let’s be clear- 10-15 sure.

  • Chad Sanborn

    you may want to reconsider your definition of genius…since you were WRONG. i think you are confusing genius with LOSER.

  • Reader783

    To be accurate, defense gave up 23 pts. The last 6 were why we lost…

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    I just dont understand why these football players are not respecting the United States flag. Colin kap. protest was a devisive but more importantly ignorant stand. Black people in no way are being targeted by police officers. Every stat shows this. I watch the Steelers because they are family, not for a penalty every 3 plays, or a commercial every ten minutes, or a crappy performance. i watch them because Im loyal and have been for 40 some years. Its plain Un- American and being a bad team mate, to let ONE person on your team stand for the Anthem. and add these people that dont stand because of a false hood, make more money than most of us in a life time. This victim mentality has to stop. No one owes you anything. If you dont want to get shot, obey the law of the land, or change the law thru legal avenues. Im as you can tell heart broken today, not by the loss, but by the entire industry that was put on notice by me and the rest of the silent majority. Enough is enough. And Dan Rooney the second is no Dan Rooney. Shame on you, shame on anyone who thinks they can reap the rewards of the greatest country known to human kind, and then shamelessly and cowardly hide in a tunnel.

  • melblount

    STOP. The team looked bad enough. The fans don’t have to follow their lead.

  • Kevin Reich

    Draft qb in first round
    Ben’s play has been dropping. I fear next year his play will fall off a cliff.

  • melblount

    Ben looks like he has checked out. And part of me is hoping he does just that at the EOY.

  • Michael

    ‘Tavis not all the way back from last year. Coates is gone. JuJu is rookie. Eli is UDFA… Ben off game. Back up RT Hubbard stalled many drives. That’s majority of the sins.

  • Reader783

    Listen man, you can read all my posts on other threads and this one blaming the coaching staff for yet another joke of a loss, but the officials totally jobbed us on the last drive. We shouldn’t have had to rely on officials for this game, but we ended up having to and got jobbed.

    I’ll be clear for you first though: I blame the TEAM AND COACHES for this loss.

  • Romel Roze

    This is unacceptable. The team looked Terrible. Not a SB contender but a pretender

  • melblount

    “…We shouldn’t have had to rely on officials for this game…”

    Agreed. But anything you say after that is meaningless, and as a Steeler fan, shameful.

    BTW, I trust that EVERY call that should have gone against the Bears was made correctly and we did NOT benefit from one single missed/bad call in the game.

  • Reader783

    “Shameful” is a stretch. I’m not ashamed to say the referees missed calls. I think I’ve heard 5 NFL commentators on CBS and NFLN mention the blatant missed holding call.

    Again, shouldn’t have come down to that.

  • Eddie Cruz

    High five. Big Al gets it.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    here you go

  • Reader783

    Also, see the new article just posted on Depot about the missed calls too…

  • Steeler Fanatic

    This wasn’t on the defense. We had the ball with five minutes and 1 minute in regulation.

  • L Garou

    Maybe they should have just stayed in the locker room..

  • pdupuis

    Write a freaking op-ed. Can we stick to sports only from here on out.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    what kinda stuff you got?

  • Lee Blomquist

    Item 4.
    Out of Bounds in End Zone.
    When a fumble goes out of bounds in
    the end zone, the following
    shall
    apply:
    (a)
    If a ball is fumbled in the field of play, and goes forward into the op
    ponent’s end zone and over
    the end line or sideline, a
    touchback is a
    warded to the defensive team
    ; or
    (
    b)
    If a ball is fumbled in a team’s own end zone or in the field of play an
    d goes out of bounds in the
    end zone, it is
    a
    safety, if
    that team provided the impetus that sent the
    ball into the end zone (See
    11

    5

    1 for exception for momentum). If the
    impetus
    was provided
    by the opponent, it is a touchback

  • Douglas Andrews

    Didn’t see the first one but I heard that was a back breaker. I’d still like for Ben to take the underneath to MB or JuJu. I saw a few times where they were open. Ben’s gotta spread the ball around to others not named AB

  • 6 ring circus

    Relax, dude, just talking sh*t, like everyone else on the game day thread. I get it – like you are right now. The world is still spinning today! I’m confident in myself that I don’t fit your descriptive of a loser, lol

  • 6 ring circus

    Oh, I thought you were going to say that you served…oh well, I think I have the better perspective, at least experientially, than you. But, let’s not be mad at each other, o.k.?!

  • Zarbor

    You may want to get some glasses or new ones because the last time you looked you clearly missed it. Pretty obvious that all wins and losses are done as a team but each unit offense, defense and special teams contribute to those wins and losses.

    Sometimes the offense plays well and defense does not. Other times its special teams. In this case with the loss to the Bears the defense gave up over 200+ yards but they gave the offense two turnovers. A fumble and an INT. By the way, they only gave up 17 points in which 10 of those points were mainly due to our ST muffed punt and blocked field goal that put them in the red zone. Additionally the defense held them scoreless the ENTIRE second half.

    Yes the defense wasn’t great but it played well enough to ensure us a win with the offensive talent we have. The offense failed miserably.
