2017 Week 5 Steelers Vs Jaguars Live Update And Discussion Thread – Second Half

The Pittsburgh Steelers are halfway through what appears set up to be yet another underwhelming performance, entering the second half trailing 7-6 after the offense stalled inside the red zone twice–though the latter came with time expiring, needing to settle for a field goal on third down.

But even that field goal attempt was set up by an interception by Ryan Shazier, ripping the ball from the grasp of the tight end as he was being tackled, not having yet secured the catch in the process.

The Jaguars’ touchdown came off of an interception from Roethlisberger by Jalen Ramsey, looking for Vance McDonald. The defense looked helpless on the drive. The Steelers’ first drive started with a 49-yard bomb to Brown that set expectations the rest of the half would not live up to.

The Steelers got an early free play on offense with Calais Campbell offsides, but the deep pass didn’t connect. From the 46, however, Le’Veon Bell was able to work his way forward for about six yards across midfield.

Martavis Bryant picked up nine yards on a screen pass up the left side on the following play. Bell was dropped for a loss of a yard on an inside zone run. Now third down, after timeout from Jacksonville, Roethlisberger went where he had to, to Brown on a short slant for the conversion. His fifth reception for the day, putting him over 100 yards.

From the 35, Roethisberger took a deep shot to Brown down the right sideline, snagging it but out of bounds. He misfired on another free play due to an offside. The hard count has been his greatest weapon this year. Off the right side, Bell took the ball off the right side, following his blockers for 15 yards.

From the 15, Roethlisberger stepped up and hit JuJu Smith-Schuster for 11, setting up their first goal-to-go situation of the game. From inside the five now, no huddle, a quick pass to Smith-Schuster was thrown in the dirt with the Jaguars breaking on it. The quick pass on second down went to Bell for three. On third and goal from the two, Roethlisberger forced the ball to Brown for an incompletion. Yet another stalled drive inside the 20, but they at least managed to take the lead, 9-7, on another Chris Boswell field goal.

Following a touchback, T.J. Watt tackled Leonard Fournette from the back side after a three-yard run.  Immediately under pressure from Shazier, Blake Bortles had to launch early and out of bounds, hit by Cameron Heyward. On third and seven, the Steelers got him for the second time of the game, initial pressure by Heyward, with Watt cleaning it up for his third sack of the season.

After holding call on the punt return, the Steelers started their second drive of the half from the 23. Bryant was upended for a loss of one on the first play, but Roethlisberger was picked off and returned for a touchdown by Telvin Smith, off a tipped pass by Avery Jones. The Jaguars missed the extra point, but it is still 13-9.

Bell was dropped for a loss of five on the first play of the ensuing drive following a touchback. On second and 15, he got three back on a screen, setting up third and 12. But it was Brown coming through for a 19-yard gain on third and 12.

Roethlsiberger was buried for a sack, the first of the game, for a loss of eight, Campbell rushing off the left side getting the initial pressure. On second and 18, his shovel pass was off-line and incomplete. On third and 18, his pass was overthrown, batted by the far defender and fielded by Barry Church, who returned it for another pick six, dropping the Steelers to 20-9, and the offense exited the field to very deserving boos.

Three quick passes to Bell, Brown, and James picked up about 12 yards in total. He did a nice job of looking off the flat route to come right-middle back to Brown for nine. After another batted pass from Roethlisberger, Bell got the carried on third and one and converted. After an incompletion, Brown was tackled for a short gain on a screen to the left. On third and eight near midfield, he was sacked by Dante Fowler, spinning away from Hubbard as Roethlisberger tried to step up into the pocket.

A combination of J.J. Wilcox and Arthur Moats was at least able to down the ensuing punt inside the five. Javon Hargrave brought down Fournette after one yard. The rookie back shook a couple of tackles for about 13 yards, followed by an 11-yard run.

After a one-yard run, Chris Ivory got six to set up third and three. The veteran back converted on the next play. The Jaguars then proceeded to gash the defense until Sean Davis came up for a run stop near the 30 for a loss of three.

After getting some of that yardage back on the ground, Bortles handed off to Fournette for no gain, but it kept the clock moving, ticking below seven minutes to play, as a field goal gave the Jaguars a 14-point lead.

From the 25, Roethlisberger checked down to Bell for a loss. He found Smith-Schuster over the middle for 14. After an incompletion off a hopped pass–Mike Tomlin challenged the play for his second lost challenge of the game, wasting a critical timeout–Roethlisberger threw his fourth interception of the game looking for Smith-Schuster, pretty much putting the nail in the coffin for this one. He has as many interceptions as touchdowns through five games.

While the defense was able to get the ball back quickly, it cost the rest of their timeouts. From the 14, Roethlisberger took a shot on an incompletion on first down. He bluffed a check down to find James for 12 on second down. He found Brown for 21 down the middle of the field to the 50.

A nine-yarder for Bryant followed. Another quick pass to Smith-Schuster added 13 and out of bounds to the 28. A touchdown was negated by a hold on the offensive line, David DeCastro the one flagged. Backed up to the 38, Roethlisberger threw a quick screen to Justin Hunter for six yards. Looking for Smith-Schuster in the end zone, Roethlisberger was intercepted by Tashaun Gipson, his fifth interception of the game, the worst of his entire career.

There’s really no reason to play-by-play the rest of this one; it’s over. But unfortunately I do have to note the horrible 90-yard touchdown run allowed to Fournette on third down. And shame on Sean Davis for giving up on the run late in trail. It’s 30-9.

    Please football gods, let the team run the no-huddle for the rest of this game. Todd Haley is inept beyond words. That guy couldn’t even plan a glass of water.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Todd Haley do you regret the day you cursed this offense with your prediction of averaging 30 points a game??? DO YA DO YA??

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Anecdotal obviously, but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna drop Ben from my fantasy team and pick up Carson Wentz as my second QB. Not a good sign, since he’s basically my backup.

  • melblount

    Yet another miserable pass by #7 has us down a point after the half. What else is new?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    I said earlier, I think the offense works best as a run-first team. That’s gonna lower the point totals, but I think it would get our offense running more consistently.

  • Chris92021

    I would be grateful if we could score a touchdown.

  • melblount

    You drafted Ben? Yoi!

  • alevin16

    Trying to think +, we should get the ball after the half

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Him and Cousins are my two QBs. He’s usually startable, and I don’t go after the top-tier QBs.

  • Michael James

    Tomlin needs to have a serious word with Haley. I’ve actually never said it out loud, but now it’s finally time: Todd Haley should be on the hot seat.
    On another note: Jordan Berry is awful. If he continues to produce such horrible punts, they may have to look for another punter.

  • WilliamSekinger

    No Dave Bryan injury posts yet today, so that is good news 🙂

  • Douglas Andrews

    Agree Ben at his best when we limit his attempts and run the ball….COWHER POWER!!

  • melblount

    So…looking ahead, is there ANY chance this team gets it all together for a deep playoff run?

  • pittfan

    Pile in everyone!!!
    Debbie Downers in front!!

  • melblount

    At this point, one must wonder…is it good news?

  • Nathanael Dory

    For real Ramsey is balling

  • Chad Sanborn

    since we haven’t seen signs of life by week 5, I say no

  • NinjaMountie

    I never drafted Ben even when he had his great seasons.

  • DarthYinzer

    Playoffs? You kidding me? PLAYOFFS?
    *Jim Mora face*

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, I think they fell in love with the idea of being an explosive offense racking up points. If it worked, great, and there’s still plenty of time to put it together. But, like I said, it seems like they play best when they play like they did against Baltimore.

  • Darth Blount 47

    97 yards for Brown at the half. Perhaps the quietest 97 half-time yards that I have EVER seen. That said, he’s a beast.

  • HopeHarveys

    I think they can do it. It’s on Ben to get on the same page with 10, 19, & 89

  • Chris92021

    Yep. We did it in the 2nd half last season and won 9 games in a row until injuries finally caught up with us in Foxboro. Why we insist on throwing deep to Bryant on every opening drive when it is clearly not there is a mystery but then again, Haley is not very good at his job.

  • Nathanael Dory

    Cousin is usually good at the second half of the season

  • WilliamSekinger

    They may have lost the 1st half, but they did it injury free!

  • Chad Weiss

    Props to the trenches first half

  • Darth Blount 47

    Brown is TORCHING him/them. At least, statistically.

  • #7

    This comment section is more toxic than the basement bathroom in the morning after a night of 12 Iron City’s and a plate full of enchiladas

  • Douglas Andrews

    I’m with you that’s really the only way to open up this offense

  • pittfan

    ARE YOU Kiddin kidding

  • Chris92021

    Yep. Our offensive philosophy is “please do something amazing, Antonio” on 3rd down and long after the offense does something stupid on 1st downs and predictable on 2nd downs.

  • Nathanael Dory

    Because he is the best WR in the NFL. That doesnt count lol

  • thomas hmmmm

    Nice image

  • HopeHarveys

    There are enchiladas???

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, I’ve been watching him play more now that I have him on my team. He’s a legit QB, I don’t know why Washington didn’t just pay him. They’re not gonna find anyone better any time soon. I’d say he’s at least in the Stafford level, and potentially in the Carr level.

    He’s gonna get paid this year on the open market. I’m really fascinated about how the bidding war plays out.

  • Douglas Andrews

    No doubt DB he comes to play every sunday

  • NinjaMountie

    Here we go. They turn it around this half.

  • thomas hmmmm

    He is a monster.. That was a great int he made.

  • alevin16

    I call bomb 🙂

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, I don’t target him, but I usually fill QB last of all the positions, and him, Cousins, etc… are usually the best available.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Defense not bad against the run so far

  • pdupuis

    Bomb, run, 3rd & long.

  • 6 ring circus

    more talk like that please.

  • NinjaMountie

    Hey look, a TE can catch

  • alevin16

    In the middle

  • 6 ring circus

    I find myself having to take breaks more and more often.

  • Dorian James

    This is the most underachieving offense I’ve ever seen

  • Darth Blount 47

    Bell and Brown should be options A, B, and 3.

  • HopeHarveys

    Break a tackle, Martavis!

  • alevin16

    MB looks like he is not completely healthy

  • Darth Blount 47

    Hurry up???? Ya don’t say!

  • Greg Payne

    Martavis keeps making me say the word “almost”.

  • alevin16

    LOW HIT ON BEN

  • Chad Sanborn

    I wish the deep ball just disappeared from the playbook ,.. poof .. just gone.. never to be seen again

  • WilliamSekinger

    Possible. He was ill so probably lingering effects.

  • Michael

    Is it me or today’s live streams are WEAK!

  • pdupuis

    Just needs something he can’t have.

  • Jonas

    In 2014, the offense’s strongest season, Haley’s dink & dunk style was as big a part of the O as the deep ball slinging. That balance and unpredictability makes an offense explosive, why can’t they realize that?

    Establishing the run from the shotgun would help, as BB actually plays PA out of these formations.

  • HopeHarveys

    So glad the game is on in Chicago!

  • Greg Payne

    A 10 minute drive like last week? I’d take that.

  • alevin16

    Does anyone know where Calais Campbell signed from? I am having a senior moment

  • HopeHarveys

    Get him going! Feed Martavis!

  • HopeHarveys

    Cardinals

  • alevin16

    Thanks

  • alevin16

    Why run to the right?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Exactly. The biggest issue seems to be predictability. Throwing long on 1st down, or third and 2 was unpredictable when they started doing it. Then, they started doing it all the time. They just seem to fall in love with something then drive it into the ground. I keep saying, run a bunch, then do some play-action.

  • Darth Blount 47

    3rd and 2…. RUN. THE. BALL.

  • DSG

    If bens theows a 30yd pass here when they need 2 i’ll lose it

  • WilliamSekinger

    2nd and 1 they ra the ball and lost a yard.

  • alevin16

    run left behind Nix and 66

  • Darth Blount 47

    kEEP RUNNING IT.

  • alevin16

    and no flag

  • thomas hmmmm

    Not exactly no huddle but Ben is calling the plays and I will take that over Haley doing it.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Brown is focused. And should have gotten that call.

    I hope he has Gatorade bins at his house every week.

  • WilliamSekinger

    I’d rather they do whatever it takes to move the ball.

  • alevin16

    try…the…middle

  • Darth Blount 47

    Which is generally running Bell. Though admittedly, Brown will work.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Try the veal.

  • alevin16

    when they play at home they should always be no huddle

  • alevin16

    and don’t forget to tip your waiters

  • HopeHarveys

    Great job Ben! The maestro!

  • NinjaMountie

    Now lets get a TD here. NO FG PLEASE….unless we have to then Please make it.

  • HopeHarveys

    Heck yes!

  • HopeHarveys

    JuJu chants for Smith-Schuster!!

  • WilliamSekinger

    Agreed, and they should stick Haley up in the box so he can’t interfere with Ben

  • Darth Blount 47

    I smell a Bell TD!

  • Rob

    It’s almost as if the offense has balance..not forced balance, but actual game flow balance

  • DAWAARE

    Bell is a beast

  • Greg Payne

    I hope your smeller is working well.

  • Rick McClelland

    Finney, Finney, Finney. Give Finney the rock.

  • HopeHarveys

    So close!

  • alevin16

    run behind nix

  • HopeHarveys

    Yes!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Put in Nix, and run Connor behind him

  • alevin16

    naked bootleg by Ben

  • NinjaMountie

    sigh….well…I don’t understand that.

  • alevin16

    seriously?

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahahah welp another wasted red zone…

  • capehouse

    This offense is offensive.

  • alevin16

    woo…f-ing…hoo

  • Darth Blount 47

    WHY NOT POUND BELL?!?!?!?!?

  • Ichabod

    we do not have an “elite” QB

  • HopeHarveys

    Ben looked great on that drive, last play aside.

  • melblount

    Nice drive…for yet another FG.

    Do we have ANY offensive TDs this season?

  • Evan Eremita

    Uptempo offense getting us all the way down the field, who could have guessed, besides anyone who has ever watched this team

  • NinjaMountie

    Their RZ problems aren’t execution nearly as much as it’s poor play calling.

  • Greg Payne

    After watching that drive I’m running my own version of 7 shots. It involves tequila.

  • Zarbor

    Doesn’t seem so anymore.

  • 6 ring circus

    Redzone=Deadzone. Wow…

  • Douglas Andrews

    Man if Ben can look for someone other than 84

  • Nathanael Dory

    I actually believed they could have had a TD there. Shame on me

  • DAWAARE

    steelers qb next year : Tony romo, Alex smith, Kirk cousins

  • HopeHarveys

    I’d love to see the other routes on that play.

  • NinjaMountie

    Ben has 6…Bell has a couple

  • Chad Sanborn

    I smell a Todd Haley stinker

  • Dorian James

    Or like Ganon said play design

  • Steeldog22

    That’s awesome.

  • Danny Porter

    Or maybe run it inside the 5

  • Chris92021

    Yep, we are now reliant on the officials to be perfect, begging for every flag. That is a sign of a team that lacks confidence. Here is hoping Shazier gets another turnover so we can kick another field goal.

  • WilliamSekinger

    I’m not that upset, because the way the offense looked they have woke up. Defense is playing out of this world so far. 3 and out and another score on offense coming up.

  • Jason

    well i thought i liked the play calling on that drive until they hit the reszone

  • #7

    You’re an atrocious commenter and fan. Go follow the Eagles

  • Chris92021

    Have you met Todd Haley?

  • Rob

    Regardless of your opinions on Ben, this offenses woes have to lay at Haley’s feet. You can’t honestly tell me that with this much talent even Andy Dalton, or Alex Smith wouldn’t be able to allow the offense to thrive into a top 10 unit.

  • melblount

    Like I said, I think we have a real chance of scoring 12 points today.

  • alevin16

    Why not try Watson when you get close?

  • Darth Blount 47

    The Refs are swallowing their flags in this game. Clearly.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I’m sure someone else was open. Looked like Ben had made up his mind from the snap it was AB all the way.

  • SilverSteel

    My wife who knows nothing about FB asks- why don’t they just run it in? Hmm..

  • thomas hmmmm

    The O looks much better with Ben calling the plays versus Haley’s play calls. That play to Brown looked like a good play but Brown just couldn’t get Bouye off of him to turn around for the ball.

  • WB Tarleton

    Haley didn’t interfere with that 3rd down play call in the end zone, now did he?

    3 instead of 6.

  • Edjhjr

    Like I said the defense has to score.

  • Av232

    Haley reads Steelers Depot. Too many run haters.

  • DSG

    Ben. Changed the play on that last one btw.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Anything except shotgun on the 2yd line again.

  • NinjaMountie

    tired of shotgun from the 2yd line

  • alevin16

    make bortles beat you.

  • thomas hmmmm

    I called it in the last half thread!!!

  • Rob

    I saw one crossing route covered by the three middle hooks. Not sure about anything else tho. The play was designed to go to AB from the start.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Why not just run it up the gut from the 2

  • DAWAARE

    Final score 15 : 10 steelers

  • Darth Blount 47

    Love me some Patron.

  • alevin16

    I would be happy

  • HopeHarveys

    Get off the field!

  • 6 ring circus

    Still haven’t resolved those childhood issues, smh

  • HopeHarveys

    Me too

  • alevin16

    They have a backup center, do that every play

  • alevin16

    Watt Watt Watt!!

  • DAWAARE

    steelers really haven’t played any good team yet…
    wonder wut will at happen at kansas next week 🙁

  • 6 ring circus

    I wish they wouldn’t celebrate so hard while they are stinking up the scoreboard!

  • Rick McClelland

    There’s my boy JT Watt.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Watt will get the sack. But that was all Tuitt.

  • Douglas Andrews

    TJJJJ

  • DirtDawg1964

    The Steelers are 12th in the league in Red Zone efficiency. They can obviously be better but some here make them out to be like they are dead last. NE, and the GOAT, are 18th by the way.

    It’s been a sluggish day but the Steelers have been dealing with horrible field position. They did well to get out of the shadows of their end zone and not have that field position turn into too many points.

  • JNick

    Watt is just incredible for a rookie. Sound, smart and makes play after play.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Can Watt dance or what? LOL

  • Nathanael Dory

    F*CK YEAHHHH!!!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Defense looks good it’s the Offense that’s crapping the bed in the Redzone right now

  • Michael

    His dance reminded me of someone?

  • alevin16

    good point

  • SilverSteel

    That is going to be brutal

  • Douglas Andrews

    Turn down for WATTT!

  • Evan Eremita

    Turn down for Watt!!!

  • 6 ring circus

    Great point but no mea culpas from me because its been a problem for the last coupla years.

  • DAWAARE

    TJ watt > Bud dupree >= jarvis jones

  • JNick

    I enjoyed last week’s dance.

  • Evan Eremita

    Classy

  • HopeHarveys

    They need to have that sounder after he gets a sack

  • SilverSteel

    Ouch

  • ayub

    > Vernon Gholston

  • 6 ring circus

    True dat.

  • DirtDawg1964

    In other news, the Browns have benched Kizer. Same old Browns.

  • JNick

    >day old taco bell

  • WilliamSekinger

    At least we aren’t being blown out 44-7 at home…

  • DarthYinzer

    31 passes, 13 runs. Jesus H Christ offense, just bash your head against a wall why don’t ya?

  • WreckIess

    I think Jacksonville has had enough of the Watt family for one lifetime.

  • SilverSteel

    lol. 🤔

  • alevin16

    take what they give you and don’t force it

  • Rob

    What you are hoping for is disastrous for a team sideline lol Any team that is pouting and kicking themselves with time on the clock is destined to lose. YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!

  • George Kroger

    That game was in London.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I knew thew would mess up dudes career. Honestly they should’ve let him watch this year until they were eliminated from the playoffs

  • HopeHarveys

    And they have a Watt, #19

  • DAWAARE

    Browns ruined another qb career …
    RIP KIZER

  • HopeHarveys

    Or force it

  • alevin16

    ugggggg

  • WilliamSekinger

    Well… w/e Ben

  • JNick

    Man. Defense is playing so well and the offense is killing em

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahahahahahahahahahah wow just ridiculously bad offense

  • DirtDawg1964

    True that. 16th last year, 12th the year before, and 19th before that. With the talent we have we expect more. Five games in the “it’s taking time for people to gel” excuse is getting thin.

  • Jay Clam

    Ben wtf are you doing

  • George Kroger

    You didn’t mean the jags D, did you?

  • Rick McClelland

    Thats two ints. WTFF?

  • Danny Porter

    Just horrible

  • Dorian James

    Watt is such a hustler

  • JNick

    It was tipped

  • 6 ring circus

    Celebrate, but get back work. You make a good point, though.

  • Darth Blount 47

    How are tipped passes that are picked on Ben?!

  • DirtDawg1964

    It was tipped. But he was also staring AB down.

  • NinjaMountie

    jags getting every break in the world

  • Michael

    May be the passon’s leaking?

  • alevin16

    OK just get a TD and we are right back in it

  • Ichabod

    why isnt hunter playing?? Bryant is a waste today

  • Dorian James

    Oh my gosh I’m way behind that hasn’t even happened yet

  • melblount

    That’s our boy. Big Ben to the rescue. I was starting to think we actually had a chance to win today.

    Man, does he ever suck.

  • Chris92021

    Lol oh man. Here is hoping Bortles gives us one back because our offense ain’t scoring touchdowns today. Not with this game plan.

  • DAWAARE

    ben suckkks

  • pdupuis

    Starting to smell 3-2.

  • HopeHarveys

    Pittsburgh Dad should be good this week.

  • Edjhjr

    I meant our defense needed to score

  • DirtDawg1964

    Because that’s how it works. He also gets credit for any bad pass that ultimately was caught.

  • George Kroger

    Telegraph

  • Jason

    this really is not a good team and its because of the QB

  • Chad Weiss

    He didn’t stare him down,he didn’t look over there til right as he passed it

  • melblount

    Bryant is a waste EVERY day.

  • Douglas Andrews

    That’s the only hope the Jags had dang it!!

  • Hyped Up Hypocycloid

    Vegas needs to wise up and adjust the lines on games this team plays against so-called lesser teams. Another stinker.

  • Chris92021

    Ryan Shazier, please save us after this 3 and out.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Shazier has all of our splash. I think it is time to give him a try on offense.

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahaha yep

  • SilverSteel

    Does it matter? We are who we thought we were.

  • psteelers

    The Jags came into this game with only one chance at winning and the Big guy is definitely doing his part. Yea yea I know it’s Haley’s fault.

  • MP

    That INT was tipped, right?

  • Darth Blount 47

    The Jags Offense has 144 total yards. The only way we lose, is if we beat ourselves.

  • Edjhjr

    Good thing we have an offense with lots of potential

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Has he been good any week? Always found him to be obnoxious.

  • HopeHarveys

    He would be a crazy scat back.

  • DAWAARE

    landry jones warming up~~

  • Av232

    Lots of dumb money comes in on the Steelers. Vegas is probably has a well balanced risk on this game.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Yes.

  • thomas hmmmm

    Boswell missed the extra point LOL… These announcers have no clue who plays for who and have called the majority of plays wrong.. How do these guys get picked to do these jobs?

  • Evan Eremita

    Yea but Ben is still an idiot

  • ThatGuy

    Can’t wait for the “I need to play better” quote from Ben only for him to do the opposite again

  • Ichabod

    4-4

  • George Kroger

    That’s happening…

  • Chad Sanborn

    so far we are doing exactly that

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    He is staring down the receivers…even the commentator called it.

  • MP

    Thanks for the commentary.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Kinda.

  • Michael

    Ball hits the underarm of DL and into CB’s bread basket. BBB. Bad Bad break.

  • Chad Weiss

    America woo

  • thomas hmmmm

    Looked like a kid on ice skates for the first time.

  • DAWAARE

    ben is not even top ten qb anymore
    plus he has good oline, best wr, rb
    and he still plays like shiiiiiiiz

  • ThatGuy

    Rich Gannon is a joke

  • Darth Blount 47

    It’s early.

  • WreckIess

    Just wouldn’t be a game against Jacksonville if Ben didn’t throw a pick 6. Thought it would end once Rashean Mathis left though.

  • Michael

    For real or fecetious?

  • Evan Eremita

    Thanks for the gratitude

  • ayub

    That made me laugh.

  • Nathanael Dory

    I can undserstand if the D would feel demoralized

  • Chad Sanborn

    ummm its halfway through the 3rd quarter…

  • HopeHarveys

    He gave us nightmares

  • L Garou

    Hire Johnny Football!

  • Michael

    Why so many of Ben’s throws been tipped for a 6’5″ QB?

  • Edjhjr

    Can our defense stay on the field

  • Dorian James

    Pop Quiz guys how many pick-sixes does Ben Roethlisberger have against the Jacksonville Jaguars LOL??

  • Douglas Andrews

    Haley is going Shotgun Shotgun Shotgun!

  • JNick

    Eleventy

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahaha couldn’t do any worse…

  • alevin16

    please just punt

  • Ichabod

    wow now just out played

  • HopeHarveys

    Textbook

  • ThatGuy

    Just get Shazier on the field

  • Dorian James

    Nice

  • Ichabod

    one man on “O”

  • WilliamSekinger

    Ravens were the home team in that game.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Brown is on fire.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Offensive play calling is so predictable

  • Greg Payne

    all year long.

  • alevin16

    thank god for AB

  • Douglas Andrews

    Can Shazier play offense?

  • RJ

    My biggest complaint is that every pass seems to be so high risk.

  • JNick

    Give the man a raise.

  • Evan Eremita

    finally did something past the chains on third and long!

  • Rob

    How does Ben throw a stinker and then throw a strike like that..he’s about 50/50 this year it feels like

  • Dorian James

    Yep, every week

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahaha wtf… I hear boos

  • Ichabod

    Bring in Freakin Landry!!

  • alevin16

    Let me guess a 3 yard pass upcoming

  • Darth Blount 47

    Ben can NOT be calling these plays.

  • Evan Eremita

    God AV is such an idiot

  • Jay Clam

    Another pick 6 LOL

  • Dorian James

    Maybe we are seeing the RAPID decline of Ben

  • WilliamSekinger

    My goodness, I’m beginning to think Ben shoulda retired…

  • Jay Clam

    Boo this team

  • Danny Porter

    Bench 7?

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahahahahahah wow just ok I’m done

  • Ichabod

    Bench Him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • HopeHarveys

    Oh man. Meltdown in the Steel City.

  • George Kroger

    I think it seems that way because of the loss of arm strength from Ben.

  • melblount

    Seriously…F U Ben.

  • psteelers

    Yea Haley is killing us, lol

  • alevin16

    They had a game just like this years ago with Tommy Maddox, int after int after int

  • Edjhjr

    I going to cut the grass

  • pdupuis

    Landry time?!

  • Douglas Andrews

    This damn Shotgun offense

  • Jeremy McClurg

    They deserve the boos. BOOOOOOO, you bums

  • SilverSteel

    This is painful to watch

  • Chad Sanborn

    Ok I am forced to now admit Ben is beyond his prime and maybe should sit down

  • ThatGuy

    Put in Landry

  • ayub

    All that’s needed is a Fred Taylor 200 yard game.

  • Jay Clam

    Just retire, Ben. Go be a dad.

  • Rick McClelland

    Just getting hard to watch now. Holy crap. Best offense in the NFL on paper. Somebody better throw that damned paper away.

  • Michael Cunningham

    is Ben on drugs …. ???

  • DAWAARE

    throws at 5 defenders

  • Edjhjr

    Against houston

  • Jason

    Ben a good QB any more, dosen’t matter what team they are playing

  • Douglas Andrews

    Paper champs on offense

  • ThatGuy

    Please!!

  • DarthYinzer

    Well 3-13 here we come.

  • JNick

    The good news is the offense gets the ball back. The bad news is the offense gets the ball back.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Why would you throw that in TRIPLE coverage??

  • melblount

    Can’t wait to hear how much we learned this week.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Not even mad. This was predictable.

  • pdupuis

    30 points a game my posterior!

  • NinjaMountie

    fun times…..terrible play on o

  • DAWAARE

    guaranteed to lose next week hahaha

  • George Kroger

    Smart move…make the wife happy!

  • Axel

    OMFG………this is ridiculous

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Ben Bortles or Blake Roethlisberger? Either way we seem to have the wrong guy.

  • melblount

    Brain dead QB?

  • Chris92021

    We are an average football team that gets the benefit of playing the Browns twice a year. This is who we are.

  • alevin16

    30 points for the other team

  • DarthYinzer

    So KC 51 Pittsburgh 15 next week. Calling it now.

  • DAWAARE

    plz put in landry jones

  • pdupuis

    No but 3-2 is almost here.

  • WilliamSekinger

    So much talent and potential being wasted.

  • Steelers12

    Guys we still in this. Calm down😂😂😂😂

  • Ichabod

    no worries…now we will run

  • Ray Smith

    Ben Bortles

  • George Kroger

    We need to draft a replacement first…dare I say first round 2018.

  • Chris92021

    If Todd Haley is fired after this game, the loss will be worth it. Having said that, Big Ben is having an awful day and needs to be held accountable.

  • DarthYinzer

    No fn way. Not the way we are playing.

  • Michael Cunningham

    He’s making Flacco look good

  • Ichabod

    and thats what pisses me off the most

  • alevin16

    Well at least the D has gotten a lot of rest

  • melblount

    Boswell +9
    Big Ben -20

  • George Kroger

    No, but he’s (poorly) executing them.

  • Michael

    Biorhythms are way off today folks. Bad breaks bad bounces all around. Let’s hit the buffets instead.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    What a disgrace

  • I4giveSteelers

    things that will make you say HMMMNNN

  • pdupuis

    Offense either gets it worked out soon or we may have another lost season.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Anyone still think ben isn’t playing like an average qb?

  • Ichabod

    then lose to detroit

  • Douglas Andrews

    Wonder who Ben throws under the bus this week because it’s “his Job as the leader”

  • pittfan

    WHo guessed Landry?

  • DAWAARE

    i mean jags did annihilate the ravens 🙂

  • Edjhjr

    Also, they always look like they are unprepared to play. What I mean is they don’t look like they ever do anything specific based on the team they play

  • Mark Petraglia

    Time for Ben to hit the bench!

  • L Garou

    We want Johnny Football!

  • George Kroger

    He’s playing like an average 35 year old QB.

  • HopeHarveys

    Can we switch the rules to make it take it?

  • Rob

    average Brown QB

  • capehouse

    Villanueva needs to go stand in the tunnel.

  • Steelers12

    Yeah when i call him out people get mad

  • psteelers

    Where is the guy who was chasing everyone on the blog that was critical of Ben’s lackluster play? I’m sure it’s Haley’s fault.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    In mass, visiting friends. Ben threw 3 interceptions 2 being pick sixes. Sit his ads down.

  • Dorian James

    I am not speaking out of anger right now but I must tell you Big Ben is done.
    He is no longer Elite and he is just average at this point

  • Ichabod

    Ben being Ben brings the show home

  • Evan Eremita

    I’d rather he keep his mouth shut and focus on how to fix his play than call people out or even take the blame, just quietly get better you idiot

  • Jeremy McClurg

    I don’t care how this game ends, some changes need to be made, NOW!

  • I4giveSteelers

    I hope Haley has a B plan

  • George Kroger

    You mean Ben being old

  • Douglas Andrews

    If it’s BS Ben needs to get called on it

  • John A Stewart

    Haley is killing this offense it’s so obvious every play you go to AB wow.

  • Chad Weiss

    Did I miss something? Is today Wednesday?

  • Douglas Andrews

    Exactly

  • Dee Evolution

    This offense is too predictable.

  • pdupuis

    I’ll have what you’re having.

  • Michael

    Ben plays like the aging surgeon in the O.R. being second guessed for his techniques.

  • ThatGuy

    Can’t believe how fast Ben plummeted from elite to average.

  • Michael James

    Haley is hot garbage and Ben is done.

  • psteelers

    Did Blake Bortles switch jersey?

  • Dorian James

    That’s your quarterback throwing those balls remember that.
    I agree Hailey is predictable but Ben is throwing the passes

  • Mister Wirez

    Ben Staring down AB the whole way. That’s because AB is a BAby.

  • Ichabod

    james .0098 yards after that catch

  • George Kroger

    Age, a wife and two kids will do that.

  • DAWAARE

    peyton manning..

  • Michael Cunningham

    Worst part is that we are wasting a great effort from our D

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Let me guess…it’s the defense’s fault?

  • ayub

    And how fast Bortles jumped from garbage to elite.

  • Michael

    and Too much cash.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Does Ben even attack the middle of the field?

  • Mister Wirez

    Fat and out of shape too

  • alevin16

    no

  • Rocksolid20

    30 point a game offense is all I kept hearing ?

  • I4giveSteelers

    nope no game plan B

  • Dorian James

    He can’t, statistics show he sucks throw in there

  • Michael Mosgrove

    Called it. Trap game 2.

  • Michael

    The 3 main chat guys next few days will have severe CARPEL TUNNEL. Book it.

  • Ray Smith

    he actually travels back in time

  • alevin16

    Is Ben 6’5″ or 5’6″?

  • George Kroger

    AV not good and Gilbert is sorely missed. I think this has led to Ben’s woes lately.

  • Chad Weiss

    But it’s an impressive.0 098 yards

  • John A Stewart

    Ben retired last year

  • Chad Sanborn

    Ben has thrown more TD passes to Jaguars players than Bortels has… ugh

  • George Kroger

    From age, fam and cash.

  • DAWAARE

    ben has good protection he just sux ass rite now

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Stop making excuses

  • Douglas Andrews

    If he’s healthy Steelers better put in a call to Ladarius Green. That’s the only way this offense is going to get going

  • Matt Hatchett

    Ben’s heart is in retirement because he knows that the way this team is run they will never reach another super bowl. This team should be a run first and pass second team. Ben is not Tom Brady. This whole offense sucks!

  • Danny Porter

    News flash
    That does not work

  • Rob

    No question Ben hasn’t been lighting it up, but don’t ignore the context that both picks were tipped. That is all for now. Thanks.

  • Mister Wirez

    Why not run on 3-1

  • alevin16

    go for it

  • Michael Cunningham

    Hubbard got used ..

  • George Kroger

    Dudes…I’ve made many comments on Ben’s bad decision making and weakened arm strength. I just think the Oline issues are making it all worse.

  • Evan Eremita

    Wasn’t there four guys in the area of the third pic?

  • Ichabod

    and as for the rest of his game?

  • Pat Knotts

    No doubt

  • melblount

    So we’ve had the ball almost the entire 2nd half and we’re losing it 3-13.

  • pdupuis

    Hopeless.

  • Rob

    “No question Ben hasn’t been lighting it up”

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Should’ve retired

  • Evan Eremita

    Four defenders*

  • George Kroger

    It was 3rd and 8.

  • alevin16

    Our D is going to have to get us a TD at least

  • melblount

    Get a grip man. Ben has 2-5 passes tipped at the line EVERY week.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Hubbard vs Donte Fowler with no help…HUH?

  • Rod Hedrick

    Hubbard getting killed!

  • DarthYinzer

    More like 2. or 3.

  • pdupuis

    2.

  • Chris92021

    This team will get blown out today. We are not a good team and our QB is average at best. The only way we win this one is if Jaguars turn the ball over at least 3 times, which ain’t happening.

  • melblount

    Amen to that.

  • Chad Sanborn

    yeah but he was throwing into triple coverage

  • George Kroger

    1st P6 was telegraph city; 2nd was thrown WAY too high.

  • Rod Hedrick

    Oh and Ben has to look at someone other than AB

  • Rob

    I’m sure we’ll get the All22 from the guys later. I think AB had inside leverage on the safety and corner..the third guy came flying in after it was batted up by AB.

  • Mister Wirez

    Hubbard SUCKS!

  • L Garou

    Coaching always sticks to a losing plan waaay too long..

  • Douglas Andrews

    Maybe the defense can score 30 points

  • Ni mo

    Bens should have retired

  • George Kroger

    Just said they miss Gilbert.

  • melblount

    At least hockey is back.

  • ayub

    This team has struggled to get momentum every season. A big win is followed up by a stupid loss. The difference between 13-3 and 9-7.

  • NinjaMountie

    Now THIS is a terrible game by Ben. At least the haters will have something legit this time.

  • melblount

    Amen to that.

  • Rob

    You are choosing to ignore my fair assessment of what is happening this week. I didn’t reference anything else. Please take your anger elsewhere.

  • NinjaMountie

    That’s not going well for us either.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Dobbs?

  • hdogg48

    Ben Rothelsberger couldn’t make a good pimple on
    Tom Brady or Aaron Rogers azz.

  • Ni mo

    Ben has been terrible all year

  • DSG

    Ben’s been on an obvious decline since 2014 if you’ve been paying attention

  • Edjhjr

    In other news I really don’t see Bell getting 17m.. I’m not sure why he is getting 12

  • Chad Weiss

    Let’s go defense!!!

  • DAWAARE

    no joke but i really think ben is actually worse than joe flacco and andy dalton.

    Ben has a lot better o-line, Wr corps and RB and he is playing as bad as them

  • Ichabod

    Big Bum needs to sit

  • Ray Smith

    There is the highlight of the day a pinned punt

  • Douglas Andrews

    KC next week in KC with Bad Road Ben……

  • Matt Manzo

    AZ?

  • NinjaMountie

    He was average up until this.

  • ayub

    Brister or Randle El.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Well a loss today and a definite loss next week will put us right where I said we would be. On par to finish 8-8. IDK what everyone saw in this team be in the preseason I called 8-8. I am sticking with it.

  • John A Stewart

    Who are Hubbard’s parents damn

  • Nunya

    Yea…I’m sorry I just checked the score and stat line. Good Lord! I remember being concerned about Ben’s lack of accuracy in training camp but everyone said no big deal. Well…this is kinda what I was worried about. But 2 pick 6s back to back? Good Lord…

  • WB Tarleton

    Yeah, Ben forcing into double coverage has nothing to do with it. If blaming “coaching” does not work, don’t forget to blame the defense.

  • Rob

    I know it looks that way on first look, and it very well might have been, but I’d personally like the All22 to confirm

  • Brad Wilson

    This is getting old… Bad team bad performance…..

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    That’s not what u just said.

  • Matt Hatchett

    The Steelers need changes from the top to the bottom. That starts with Tomlin. Until he is gone they are going to underachieve.

  • Brad Wilson

    Agreed

  • Jeremy McClurg

    NO, we can’t strike very quickly announcers. Our offense sucks!

  • alevin16

    Well at least Tomlin will accept this and own it…so we got that going for us

  • Icancoach

    “It’s not over yet. We know Pittsburgh can strike quickly ”

    Are you kidding me? They haven’t done that all year.

    Paper champs

  • alevin16

    game

  • Rob

    Not adding anything else to my original comment. Which is fact.

  • Chad Sanborn

    he was terrible being covered up by exceptional play of AB and Bell

  • George Kroger

    Holding on Hargrave, anyone?

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Hargrave is dominating week in and week out

  • I4giveSteelers

    Im so done with Tomlin. He has many great attributes, but for to long, lacks a chess mind

  • Evan Eremita

    Haha yea exactly. I wish they would just shut up and focus on how to get better

  • John A Stewart

    In all three phases

  • HopeHarveys

    How is the D already gassed?

  • Rob

    Obviously this performance was not up to the standard.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    He hasn’t been good in any game honestly. Not by his standards.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    How? They haven’t played !

  • Nunya

    Well…we are seeing what he looks like with an average to poor QB, that’s for sure. Welcome to Cowher QB hell!

  • hdogg48

    So Big Ben lets Blake freaking Bortles outplay him…pathetic.

  • alevin16

    Jags are just going to run the ball, they have a backup center, the D has not played for a quarter and they STILL cannot stop the run

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    We did a good job
    If chewing the clock on that last drive. Oh wait.

  • Brad Wilson

    We deserve to lose D cant get a breathe cause “BIG BEN” wants to throw picks and go 3 and outs….

  • Evan Eremita

    Never thought our special teams would be outplaying our offense

  • Chad Sanborn

    I have said this numerous times. Until he is gone we will not see 7

  • Jason

    this is literally the same game as 2 weeks ago and the Steelers have done nothing to be better

  • Jeremy McClurg

    We’re the worst coached team in the NFL

  • John A Stewart

    Don’t forget Ben’s favorite line this one is on me.

  • ayub

    Clock churning drive. Even if they don’t score it’s a success.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Yep.

  • Matt Manzo

    This is not very fun.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Dupree has been a non factor…again

  • Nathanael Dory

    D getting tired

  • Matt Hatchett

    Who wants to pay Bell 12 million a year now? He is not worth 1/2 that.

  • NinjaMountie

    This hasn’t been a very enjoyable experience.

  • DAWAARE

    tomlin after this game : ” we didn’t do enough”
    won’t change a thing and get annihilated by chiefts next week

  • Ichabod

    d-line getting worked now

  • Rob

    Ben’s verterans day off should be on Sundays

  • NinjaMountie

    why..this is the first they played this half lol

  • John A Stewart

    With all this talent

  • George Kroger

    Sorry…it’s what I meant.

  • Chad Sanborn

    next 3 games, Chiefs Bengals, Lions. 1-2 over those games .. Book it

  • pdupuis

    This game is OVER!

  • alevin16

    it is it seems

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    What the hell is Mirchell doing?

  • Ike Evans

    Bud Dupree is so overrated I can’t take it

  • Ichabod

    wow they are punking us

  • Kevin Schwartz

    All right, I know we’re playing like c$ap, but this game’s nowhere near over.

  • HopeHarveys

    Look at Mitchell party after that 11 yard gain.

  • psteelers

    Now Shazier is trying to make super plays.

  • Icancoach

    Way to celebrate Mitchell

  • Jimbo

    ben has no fire..his confidence is missing..

  • Nunya

    That dude in Coming to American on Ben today:
    That Boy Good!

  • Danny Porter

    He Tomlin
    They are going to run it

  • Ike Evans

    Defense is tired

  • L Garou

    It will be in 40 seconds..

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    *Offense

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Mike Mitchell is delusional

  • I4giveSteelers

    i have never unstood letting law dog go

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Get Mike Mitchell off of the field

  • DAWAARE

    bud dupree non factor

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Can you imagine if we played a tough schedule to this point?

  • ayub

    “You must be crazy”

  • psteelers

    All runnung plays, SMH

  • Matt Hatchett

    There is no discipline on this team. Now the defense is falling apart

  • Ichabod

    Cinci will win the AFC North

  • DSG

    This is nothing new. He was outplayed by tebow and ryan mallet who was signed off the street.

  • alevin16

    I was just about to type that

  • michael young

    A few questions that keep popping into my head as I watch this game.

    1. Can Martavis Bryant be a legitimate #2 if Ben cannot find his accuracy on the deep ball?
    2. Was it a mistake going with Justin Hunter over Eli Rogers in a game against a defense like Jacksonville who makes you work underneath?
    3. How oddly inconsistent is our run defense?
    4. How predictable is our offense?
    5. Why does Ben get so many passes knocked down? It feels like multiple each game.

    Good grief. We keep hearing how talented this team is but they sure don’t show it. Poor performances throughout the year.

  • Michael Cunningham

    Ok looks like this game is done
    Lotta high paid players (and coaches) out there tho
    Time for peeps to start earning their pay ..

  • gentry_gee

    Ben’s done. His heart ain’t in it anymore. And he ain’t no Peyton Manning so I’d wish he’d stop with the Ricky today. I expect this to be his last year. As for the O they got all these hotshots but they don’t line up to play fundamental football. They telegraph everything. They go pass into five wide or draw to the single back. It’s all so predictable. They can’t line up and smash you in the mouth. They got to finesse and prance the ball down the field. If Ben and the O want success, they need to pare down the finesse game and run some more physical packages with a pass/run set.

  • David Henderson

    If Mitchell puts as much effort into playing as he does dancing he may make a play!

  • Greg Payne

    If they score here, I’m out for the day. This is painful. How can Jacksonville run the ball, but we can’t?

  • L Garou

    Run it down their throats at home?! Embarrassing.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Perfect timing for the defense to fall apart

  • DarthYinzer

    How to make the Steelers 0-16.
    Favor them by 7+ points in every game.
    It’s a loss, you can bet your house on it.

  • 6 ring circus

    James Harrison, we need you to get dressed…

  • I4giveSteelers

    they are tired of getting hit

  • gentry_gee

    That’s how you run the ball. Keep it simple.

  • Ichabod

    has Dupree made a tackle today???

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Only so much this defense can do. Offense has not helped them yet.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Just falling apart technique wise

  • Michel Smiffi

    Ok, I’ve always supported Tomlin, but he has to go.
    This is humiliating.

  • Michael James

    Good thing that Haley forgot to that running the ball with the best RB in the business might be a good idea. Pathetic all around. Ben is done, so much is clear, but Haley’s bs playcally are the icing on the cake.

  • michael young

    J Wobble the Grave Digger is the man. Seriously, he’s a gamer.

  • Matt Manzo

    We are getting beat up!

  • Pat Knotts

    It’s over

  • DAWAARE

    they really should consider benching ben
    playing like shiiiz for 5 straight games is not a good sign

  • Matt Hatchett

    Martavis Bryant has been away from football way too long to be counted on

  • psteelers

    Can hear big dofous now, this one is on me, i got to play better blah blah blah……just heard that a couple weeks ago.

  • hdogg48

    They are getting physically man handled by a team that lost
    to the dog azz Jets.

  • pittfan

    Miss it!!!

  • Ike Evans

    And again…tired as hell…our D makes the play

  • Tontokitty Millican

    I guess they don’t want another Super Bowl ..no one corrects or addresses issues immediately ! You can’t wait till after the game !

  • alevin16

    My predication, the Jags get their heads handed to them next week.

  • DarthYinzer

    So do the Steelers.

  • Evan Eremita

    They address it, but they don’t correct it

  • Tontokitty Millican

    Ben has the lowest pass percentage that he’s ever had ,something is clearly wrong

  • alevin16

    yup

  • Douglas Andrews

    Does this mean the Steelers aren’t better than the Jets?

  • WilliamSekinger

    It’s about time, cause they missed getting off the field the last 5 or 6 3rd downs by missing tacl
    kles.

  • Ni mo

    Yup

  • I4giveSteelers

    i love me some smash mouth football

  • John A Stewart

    Ben is a very very good jock and not a student of the game

  • hdogg48

    It’s called no effing guts.

  • Nunya

    He forgot he decided not to retire!

  • Ray Smith

    Why does Tomlin always look like his wife dragged him to the Ballet ?

  • Rick McClelland

    We’re still in it everybody. We’re 7.5 point favorites. Tomlin and his staff suck.

  • julian

    man I thought the offense would get better but this is just who they are. We are 5 games in

  • Douglas Andrews

    No more days off for Ben

  • Ichabod

    wonder if Ben will call AB out in his show this week?

  • paltel

    Harrison should have been active instead of Ben as James can set the edge and hash”t thrown a pick in his career.

  • Ni mo

    Average and he’s a Hof QB

  • Michael Conrad

    No but he is fast.

  • pittfan

    Blocked FG!!!

  • Michael Cunningham

    Because he knows he’s going to have to start and earn that new contract

  • Michael Conrad

    I say we tank the season to get a top QB in the draft.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    This game was over after the first pick 6. This team is dumbly ran solely off of emotions, by Tomlin. We lose a shred of momentum, and we lose big time. I am not shocked by the ut come at all by this game. This is Mike Tomlin’s Steelers. Ben needs to retire after this game

  • Matt Hatchett

    Please, Pittsburgh media hold Tomlin to account on his post game presser. He will blame Ben and say how good Jacksonville is, just like he said how good the bears are. The Steelers are undisciplined and are terrible offensively. I really think that this is a undisciplined locker room and it shows. Tomlin needs to be on the hot seat!

  • Ichabod

    only Sundays

  • John Pennington

    Ben will lose this game and it’s all his fault.He rushing all his throws don’t see the field his legs are shot and don’t matter anymore.We don’t need to here it’s his fault we all know and he can’t play better.He is done go home to your family you can’t lead this team to the bathroom at this point never to a SB.Retire call it a day your done.

  • pdupuis

    Is it time to unleash hell yet? Obviously!

  • pittfan

    LOL

  • Ike Evans

    Ben doesn’t look good but let’s be honest…. when Ben was good we were still inconsistent scoring

  • hdogg48

    Game…set…match!

  • ThatGuy

    People need to be fired. Enough is enough

  • NinjaMountie

    Even if we did that and Ben retired, I would sign Cousins and use the draft pick on Sanquez Barkeley.

  • melblount

    Speaking of hockey…Ben going for the Hat Trick on this next drive.

  • Chris92021

    Absolutely embarrassing. This team is going nowhere.

  • DAWAARE

    game over
    why does ben skip practice anyway? he is the worst piece in this offense rite now looll

  • melblount

    Amen.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    I hold my breath every time ben throws 10+ yards downfield.

  • DarthYinzer

    After next week, their record will show what we’ve seen today. The Steelers are an average football team.

  • NinjaMountie

    true….too much shotgun/ empty sets from the 2 yard line!!

  • 6 ring circus

    Steeler fans can’t take a loss without losing their minds. We aint gonna win a superbowl every year. Who do you thing we are? The Patriots, smh

  • Tontokitty Millican

    Or Ben decided he’s not getting paid enough ? And is getting paid to throw games ! CLEARLY THERES A PROBLEM …we have the best receivers and hasn’t anyone noticed how low his pass percentage is ? It’s I’m pretty sure the lowest in the league after today

  • I4giveSteelers

    Im betting Todd Haley will be fired this week

  • ThatGuy

    Welp at least my schedule has opened up next week.

  • David Henderson

    Only Steeler I draft is the kicker!

  • Chris92021

    Yep. We just have the benefit of playing the Browns twice a season, which skews our record.

  • Jeffrey Haynes

    The tips are on Ben too

  • DAWAARE

    chris hubbard > big bum

  • NinjaMountie

    lol

  • Timothy Rea

    Is it time for Landry to split reps with the first team offense? Is that how bad the offense is?

  • pittfan

    TIme to start my lawn workk

  • Rocksolid20

    He needs a toke !

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben better not say anything until he starts playing better

  • L Garou

    Maybe Tomlin will hire Kap..

  • ayub

    There’s too much talent and limited injuries this year to lose to the Jaguars and Bears. It’s not acceptable at this point.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Ben or Haley has to go. I think we all know which one is expendable.

  • Nathanael Dory

    Mentally

  • Tontokitty Millican

    I’m telling you I think he needs glasses

  • melblount

    Offensive practice focus this week will be tackling defenders who have picked off Ben.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    The Bengals are the best team in the division, and will win the division with a 9-7 record

  • Matt Hatchett

    Start by running the ball first. Stop the 4 wide receiver set because it is not scaring no one. Ben was never good throwing 30 times a game.

  • psteelers

    Lol Tomlin will blame Ben? He should but he wont.Ben is on his last leg. He has fooled everyone. They should go to him and ask for some money back so they can sign Bell. Everytime we have these for sure wins Ben plays terrible. So maybe Ben should be benched when we play the so-called layup games.

  • blue

    Big Ben does it again. QB in the 1st rd, Ben can walk.

  • DarthYinzer

    How about not playing down to an opponent EVERY FREAKING TIME!!!!

  • Dee Evolution

    The Patriots are good enough at everything they need to do to take a lead, come back, and win close games.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    If the price was right, I wouldn’t be totally against it.

  • #beatthepats

    Garbage defense, garbage off coordinated garbage head coach brown is a distraction. Bud dupree not a good football player , mike mitchell is an ass, 4-1 ay? . Shotgun formation go out im throwing to brown so he doesnt have a hissy fit- season over- team turmoil.FIRE TOMLIN- his teams arent prepared.

  • Ichabod

    who game planned better

  • DAWAARE

    steelers goin 0-3 next three games unless they do something about qb
    maybe collin kapernick will do

  • 6 ring circus

    Yea, but in the scheme of things, there”s Las Vegas and Puerto Rico, etc. So what for a football game.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Biggest takeaway from this game….Steelers can’t afford any injuries on the Offensive Line

  • Zarbor

    Who’s the distraction now?

  • WB Tarleton

    Yeah, because the D is the problem today. SMH

  • Michael Conrad

    Lets goof around in the preseason so we have no idea how bad we are until we play bad and everyone can’t understand we was bad all along. Let keep talking big and show boating a tackle twelve yards down field. Ben needs to take the game off instead of Wednesday

  • Agustin-ARG

    Tomlin outcoached: Season 10 episode 2

  • Ichabod

    nice pass without pressure Ben

  • NinjaMountie

    You’re kidding me….Tomlin challenged that….MY GOD

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Dont blame the defense for this loss. The offense did absolutely nothing.

  • Jay Clam

    Goodbye, timeout.

  • WilliamSekinger

    WTF is he challenging?

  • Rob

    You’d have to be watching another game to not see Ben has lost accuracy and just general awareness out there. Haley’s play calling and even the drawn up plays have rendered the wealth of talent on offense useless, and I think the majority of the blame can be laid at his feet, bc even before this current iteration of Ben, the offense still hasn’t lived up to expectations.

  • Ichabod

    nice Challenge Mike

  • Icancoach

    What is wrong with this coach???

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Is Tomlin not communicating with the guys upstairs?

  • Matt Hatchett

    Great challenge Tomlin

  • pdupuis

    Why Tomlin, why?

  • Rocksolid20

    I smell a stench in the air .There has to be a change . Tomlin must go !
    I know everyone will cry he doesn”t play , but he just can’t get his team ready
    for the games against a lesser opponent .

  • Evan Eremita

    Ben used to be able to get it done with a bad O line

  • Rob

    loose another TO. Idiot

  • Timothy Rea

    Now tomlin is challenging plays that are obviously called right?

  • Chad Sanborn

    that’s your coach. always making game changing decisions

  • melblount

    Brain dead Mikey Tomlin to the rescue.

  • Chris92021

    What a terrible challenge. Well, the entire team is struggling so the head coach should too as well.

  • Reginald Pippin

    This is effing terrible! I bet Selfish AB just glad that he got his catches even if Ben threw two pick-6s trying to get him the ball some more. I don’t effing believe any of this!

  • alevin16

    TO? We don’t need no stinking TOs

  • Ichabod

    What A Freakin’ Dumpster Fire

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Someone please hide the challenge flag from Tomlin

  • Chad Weiss

    Omg did Tomlin really just challenge that.Wtf is going on?

  • Matt Hatchett

    He is the most overrated coach ever

  • Kevin Schwartz

    You’re definitely missing out if you avoid Brown or Bell.

  • Jay Clam

    Ugly, ugly game. Worst we’ve seen in a while.

  • Rick McClelland

    Best offense in the NFL on paper. Somebody needs to take that paper and wipe their A$% with it. Watching this offense is like watching two fat people do it.

  • 6 ring circus

    Maybe he beat Brady to the “cliff”.

  • Romel Roze

    Todd Haley is inept, you better look at the overpaid QB. His execution is horrendous

  • SilverSteel

    He’s just not mobile anymore and he relied on that heavily

  • Icancoach

    Inexcusable

  • julian

    I think the defense played well. very well actually. Ben was just so trash it didn’t even matter. The jags defense scored more points than our offense did. not much The defense can do about that honestly

  • Michael Conrad

    I’m throwing the red flag on Tomlin,Haley,Butler ,Ben and the season.

  • Robert Builder

    well, at least it’s not to a losing team!

  • DAWAARE

    u cannot blame ben’s piss poor play on o-line 🙂

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Dude, the ball bounced.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Unfortunately those days are over lol

  • melblount

    Dan Rooney (RIP) is sadly rolling over in his grave.

  • alevin16

    was that you watching me and my wife?

  • Matt Hatchett

    He is the most overrated head coach in the league

  • Ray Smith

    Ben’s mind is not on the field you can almost see the golf clubs and Tommy Bahama shirt he wants to wearing right now

  • NinjaMountie

    Quit pretending to be a fan.

  • Chad Sanborn

    Defense has been great and only allowed 10pts.

  • pdupuis

    What is wrong with this team?

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Both the guy upstairs and Tomlin are both smoking some high grade ish

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    I just want to know how many years will we stay in this good but not great bubble before we make QB/coaching/philosophy changes? Ben has 2 more years of whining about retirement, I’m sure Tomlin has one more extension by the Rooney’s (not sure why) and ….?

    so thats probably 2-5 years of boring near miss play, and then about 2-4 years of rebuild. sweet. I’ll be ready for 2025 baby!!!

  • Timothy Rea

    Hah.. yeah that’s exactly what it’s like. Yet we are ALL watching

  • melblount

    That’s Mikey for you. Brain dead… AGAIN.

  • Chris92021

    Big Ben is hot garbage right now. You are right.

  • SilverSteel

    Lol

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Bortles has thrown for 95 yards….

  • Rick McClelland

    Lmao. Too good of a reply.

  • Matt Hatchett

    He is a idiot

  • Douglas Andrews

    Tomlin take the damn sunglasses off!!

  • Rob

    Possibly. But how can we go against one of the worst run Ds in the league and force this version of Ben to throw so much? Just doesn’t make sense to put him in that situation.

  • 6 ring circus

    Pretty much with the same disgust. Please make it stop!

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Yeah. This story has been played out. At this point, it has to be pure luck if they win games. Its a shame that Def will go to waste though. I know 2008 had that same big D and weak O, but that Defense was once in a lifetime.

    2017 Steelers: The Greatest Offense that never was.

  • alevin16

    challenge was lost…well color me surprised

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, all of the scores except the last one were on the offense. 13 directly, and the other td was after Ben’s first pick, if I recall.

  • Douglas Andrews

    He only needed half those yards for this game

  • psteelers

    He can not read defenses and every team is going to play us the same way. Take away the deep ball and make him read coverage. It’s why this team has been so bad in the red zone scoring once we got away from a power running game offense. Unless the defense is taking the ball away the offense will struggle to score.

  • NinjaMountie

    lol

  • HopeHarveys

    What do you call these guys.. “Cornerbacks” ??? Haven’t seen these in Pittsburgh in quite some time.

  • Jay Clam

    Retire, Ben. Just fking retire.

  • Matt Hatchett

    I say bench Ben and see what Jones can do next week

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Bingo..

  • ThatGuy

    Lmao. What a loser. Put in Landry

  • Greg Payne

    I”m going to throw a gatorade cooler

  • Ike Evans

    And no coaches ever get held accountable….that’s what kills me….bench Eli Rogers…bench whoever but what when your staff drops the ball….how do you hold ben accountable?

  • Mister Wirez

    Haaarrrrable:

    Coaching
    O-Line play
    Play calling
    Execution
    Blocking
    Run Defense
    Tackling
    Decisions…

    Other than that, great day!

  • Timothy Rea

    Is there anyone within a mile of that one?

  • Romel Roze

    Really, a QB that gets paid all that money should be limited in the amount of times he pass the ball?

    Sounds like a QB that is a rookie or a game manager if you have to limit him. Surely not an elite QB.

  • Jay Clam

    Lol just threw his hands up. He gave up.

  • 6 ring circus

    No. You can bet your house at the track. That aint gonna happen, nor should it. I’m not into calling people dumb, but…

  • HopeHarveys

    Shades of Mike Glennon two weeks ago.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Think Ben gives up too much of the gameplan during the week….Ben “I need to connect on more big balls”

  • Mister Wirez

    There are other receivers Ben. WTF

  • Grant Humphrey

    Ben looks retired

  • Jay Clam

    Put in the reserves on defense so no one gets hurt.

  • alevin16

    OK that is a good stat, last time Ben threw 4 ints was in 08 and things worked out ok then:D

  • WB Tarleton

    Yep, but the fools in here will say otherwise.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    *Dobbs

  • Rob

    After this game, so do I

  • DAWAARE

    wow wut a shiity pass
    even if he didnt slip, the ball was way overthrown hahahah

  • melblount

    Jumping ahead to what we learned today…

    Ben sucks.
    Haley is a jack ars.
    Tomlin is brain dead.

    Wait…didn’t we already know all of that?

  • Joseph Shaw

    I have enjoyed games less this year than any other. Even the wins.

  • Jay Clam

    And onto KC we go LOL

    Loss

  • T R

    Funny thing is. we go to kansas city next week… sheesh..

  • Ni mo

    Ben needs a seeing eye dog

  • NinjaMountie

    Winners: Absolutely no one.
    Losers: In order of loserness
    Coaching, Ben, OL, …..everyone else.

  • DAWAARE

    i will enjoy how everyone will sh@#@t on ben next week ahaha

  • Rick McClelland

    Watching the fat women across the street head to the buffet now. Seems a little more interesting than the game. The big one is going wide.

  • Danny Porter

    Something drastic needs to change

  • melblount

    What’s funny about that?

  • Douglas Andrews

    Gonna be ugly

  • Ni mo

    And watch they beat KC

  • L Garou

    Payback.

  • Rob S.

    Time for the Josh Dobbs experiment. Worst case scenario we lose the rest of our games and get a good quarterback in the first round.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Seriously. I don’t mind when they lose, they’re just underachieving so badly.

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    Killer B’s…Killer Bums

  • Matt Hatchett

    Another game where the Steelers are unprepared

  • pdupuis

    And I believe no pass plays in the fourth quarter

  • T R

    Another lost to a QB who throws damn near less then 100 yards.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    Why? Ben has stated he is retiring or thinking about it. He plays like he already did, time and time again. part of running a team is to know when to stay the course, and when to make changes for the future. Ben is almost spent, and while Landry sucks, it is time to look at what you have on your team.

    While the season isnt over, there are games left against teams that are bad, and we are most likely going to lose based on the past 4-5 years of data. This team, and mainly the QB, plays bad against bad teams and needs help getting into the playoffs. Just cut bait already and try new things. whats is the worst to happen…lose?

  • ayub

    Like the young money crew, just a name nothing else.

  • Jay Clam

    Huge holes all day for them

  • Mrs Bighead

    As bad as it gets

  • Rick McClelland

    Still in this one Tomlin. 7.5 point favorites to win.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Gotta give it to AB. He’s a beast, no matter what everyone else is doing.

  • Michael James

    Fire every single coach. Jax have the #1 passing defense and the #32 rushing defense. Steelers ran the ball 15 times and passed it 43 times. Laughable.

  • Dorian James

    Can’t blame the coaches for this one looks like bad quarterback play buddy.

  • Nolrog

    That’s an insult to steaming garbage.

  • NinjaMountie

    We all are certain you will because you’re like that.
    We all can tell you’re enjoying this loss as well.

  • pdupuis

    48.1 QB rating? I’m shocked it is that high.

  • Matt Hatchett

    AB I s a great receiver but he is short and only a 4.5 guy. Behind him is no one.

  • Douglas Andrews

    I thought we only had to worry about Bad Road Ben now we got just flat out Bad Bad Bad Ben

  • DAWAARE

    list of qb who is actually worse than big ben as of now

    blake bortles

  • melblount

    Can’t wait for the SD positive spins on this one.

  • nick harris

    Can anyone explain why this offense is underperforming this bad?. Is it Haley, Ben or what?.

  • Mister Wirez

    Dobbs.
    Jones is a poor imitation of Ben. He’s worse.

  • Jay Clam

    “The game dictated that we throw more. When we’re behind, we can’t execute our offense exactly the way we want to.”

    -Tomlin, postgame

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m done putting him on the winners list for 100 yd games. He needs to put TDs with them now.

  • alevin16

    and Glennon

  • Douglas Andrews

    That’s you’re QB

  • jconeoone C

    This made me laugh… Thanks

  • Matt Hatchett

    Fire Haley this week!

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahaha welp welcome to Tomlin ball

  • 6 ring circus

    Use all the reason you can muster, then come back to reality. Do you think it is really going to happen?! No one in their right mind is going to say book that…

  • Dorian James

    It’s both of them

  • ayub

    Both, more on Ben as he’s always refused to take what is given when the opponent knows this.

  • Rob

    You take that back:

    Hargrave, AB, Boswell, and I don’t think the secondary in general has been the problem

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Fair enough, I’m still on his side.

  • DAWAARE

    nope

  • Jay Clam

    Ben has been ass. He looks like he’s lost zip on his throws

  • Mrs Bighead

    Let’s see who Ben blames this week

  • L Garou

    Textbook example of a poorly coached game..

  • Romel Roze

    Chris, do not listen to me. I am just a Big Ben hater. I do not know how to be objective when it comes to my team…….well that is what the Ben apologists always say.

  • Mister Wirez

    Or 2.. or 4 ints

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Should have gotten beat by the Browns, and lost to the Bears and Jaguars. Great season. Good thing we have the easiest schedule in the NFL, or we would be the Giants right now. Mike Tomlin; and I have been saying this for 6 years now, is a terrible coach! Look what this team is, now that Ben’s age shows. We even have a good defense, and we are getting blown out at home, and making STUPID challenges, and timeouts. I turn that crap off! No one get’s held accountable for their actions. It’s like they are just running around on the field like it’s Pop Warner. I have said it for a while, this team will struggle mightily when Ben’s either gone, or struggling. I’m looking forward to the draft, cause honestly, this team can’t compete against any playoff team

  • Ichabod

    why not give Jones or Dobbs some reps. This will happen again next week in KC

  • DAWAARE

    nah ben just sucked

  • melblount

    Bud DuPree is HORRIBLE. I think he’s gonna get an assisted tackle though for the one play that Fournette could do nothing but bowl him over.

  • alevin16

    How bad must the Ravens be?

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Unless the defense morphs into the 08 unit this team isn’t going anywhere.

  • Chad Sanborn

    its both. AB and Bell have covered up a lot of their mistakes.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Before the game ends

  • 2winz

    I’m throwing in my terrible towel on the season. No not based off of this game, based off of how the offense has played this season. based off of our inability to stop the run on defense, especially when it matters.. we are not going to the super bowl this year. Forget beating the patriots or good teams like chiefs when we cant beat teams like the bears and we keep beating ourselves. perfect example is this game.. Ben throwing pick 6 after pick 6.. give credit to jags defense, they are rlly rlly good but you still gotta be smarter than that! You also have Tomlin challenging plays that I cant even comprehend.. if you are away, I could understand.. maybe! but at home.. you havetimeto review the replay before challenging.. so i have no confidence in this team going far! yes we were 3-1 before this jaguars game.. but the games we won, were not impressive at all. maybe the ravens game but thats it.

  • L Garou

    He didn’t run it down the D’s throat in the 4th quarter..

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    But why pass all day when they are the worst run defense….? Just stick to that and wear them down if you are going to lean on the defense this way.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Start Jones, Conner and Hunter next week. Bench Ben, Bell and Bryant

  • Chris92021

    This might be the worst coached game in Tomlin’s career. This is definitely the worst game I’ve been Roethlisberger play. This however is just an average day for Todd Haley.

  • Timothy Rea

    Landry Jones time to suit up and time for Big Ben to not take healthy practice days off anymore. Oh and James Harrison needs to be on active list.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    It’s not that, he’s just innaccurate.

  • Zarbor

    You guys can find blame all around, 4INTs….That’s not coach, o-line, defense, etc. Keep making excuses. I’m done with that…..Now we know why AB lost it on the sidelines. He knows.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    The ball kid

  • psteelers

    You know how it goes. Have to lump them all in to fulfill their agenda. Ben has been playing like a bottom 10 qb in the league this season.

  • Jay Clam

    What sucks is that we’re gonna start facing real QBs these next few weeks. So that #2 against the pass will end up being more like #20 REALLLLL soon

  • DAWAARE

    ben really reminds me of peyton manning during his last season
    i remember he threw like 4ints in one game ahahaha

  • Chris92021

    He is flat out lost.

  • jconeoone C

    They lost to the jags 44-7…so below bad

  • Chad Sanborn

    finally eyes are starting to open and see the truth

  • Chris92021

    Of course James Harrison, who is a run stopper, is not in the game because Bud Dupree, who is clueless.

  • David Henderson

    Can you challenge this whole game?

  • Joseph Shaw

    Jags defense out scored our offense.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Defense looks about a top 10-15 unit but this offense sheesh

  • Michael James

    What’s freaking baffling is that the Jax offense does next to nothing. The Steelers were up 9-7 and got the ball back with 7:20 to go in the 3rd quarter. That just screams “run the ball against the worst run defense in the league”. Yet they completely and utterly abandoned the run and essentially handed Jacksonville the game.

  • Jay Clam

    5th pick incoming

  • pdupuis

    We will unleash hell next week!

  • Dorian James

    Fans are in denial bro, it’s always going to be tomlin’s fault, or somebody else’s fault, never Ben

  • melblount

    Bud DuPree sucks. Period. No getting around it. He doesn’t even seem to want to get his uni dirty.

  • SilverSteel

    We didn’t play down to the jags. This is who we are, like it or not.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Coaches suck too

  • Matt Hatchett

    He is going to throw another int

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Well he sort of needs someone to throw him an accurate pass to do that.

  • Chad Sanborn

    I blame them all!

  • Rick McClelland

    I think those two guys on the Gateway Clipper were thinking river suicide.

  • Av232

    Ben Roethlisberger should never, ever have 50 passing attempts in one game.

  • Mister Wirez

    Still horrible Tomlin and Haley decisions, both challenges were dumb. Play selection was bad. But, yeah Ben left a stinker.

  • alevin16

    or at least heck

  • Jay Clam

    Bleach time

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Not the defense fault.

  • Jonathan Ferullo

    It is probably both. Ben though gets drama queen syndrome when the game plan is heavy run and he isnt in the spotlight. He’ll then audible like a maniac to get that passing game going, 8-10 yards per carry be damned.

  • Zarbor

    2 pick six = 14point people. That means for those who can’t add the score is tied at 9.

  • Ichabod

    James 2 yards after catch…bumps average byb200%

  • NinjaMountie

    At least Star Trek: Discovery is on tonight.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Cannot evaluate the defense when the O plays this bad. Simply cannot. We have Ben for this year – but need a change. Must fire Haley.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Something tells me he dresses next week

  • melblount

    I was really hoping for a Hat Trick from Ben after the second one.

  • DAWAARE

    it will be pretty funny if he throws another pick 6

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Prediction for next week. Kc 77 Pit 5

  • HopeHarveys

    The stats are going to look crazy this game.

  • alevin16

    at the half

  • pdupuis

    It’s not over yet.

  • NinjaMountie

    Dang…you’re even complaining about good plays.

  • Mister Wirez

    Ben needs to quit his radio gig and focus on practicing on Wednesdays.

    30 points a game my ass…

  • Rick McClelland

    Should have stayed in the tunnel for the second half.

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, thinking with a little clarity, this game was essentially torpedoed by Ben. We were moving the ball reasonably well, and up 9-7 before the two pick-sixes. He doesn’t throw those picks, and we control the ball, probably run a bunch more, and the defense holds. We have a decent shot at a 16-10 win.

  • psteelers

    Brown saved him from #5 there

  • Jimbo

    super bowl teams have superbowl caliber QB’s..Ben is not playing at that level, for whatever reason..

  • Dorian James

    That’s right, just got my free trial of CBS All Access

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m sure you’ll think so troll

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    The write up on “Stats of the Weird” is going to be HILARIOUS.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Seriously. So much worry on this O about our TE. Lol.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Bring in DEEBO we want DEEBO…oh that’s right he didn’t dress

  • Ichabod

    good thing this was a throw away game

  • pittfan

    Quick score and we’re in it

  • alevin16

    Now why couldn’t we do this all game…oh right Jags were not in prevent

  • ThatGuy

    Yeah on the fan base

  • Av232

    Cause they literally threw it away…

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    And this is a HEALTHY Steelers team.

  • NinjaMountie

    I really enjoy it.

  • alevin16

    holding

  • pittfan

    CRAP!!!

  • Chad Sanborn

    hahahahaha well

  • Av232

    Maybe you should practice your trade on our squad. They’ve played like…

  • pdupuis

    Dreamer!

  • alevin16

    the minute I saw the flag I knew it was a TD

  • Rob

    At it’s absolute worst, the offense shouldn’t look this bad. Ben and Haley need to work this out because reality is, neither of them are going anywhere the rest of the year.

  • Evan Eremita

    Good thing ab is a superhuman, otherwise that would have been number 5

  • Ichabod

    Lol me too!

  • HopeHarveys

    True that!

  • Dorian James

    I’m about to binge watch the next two episodes before tonight start

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben looking like a HOF QB once the Jags soften up the defensive scheme lol

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    The defense never gets off the field becaus the offense can’t maintain a drive, let alone score points.

  • Jay Clam

    And there’s the pick lol

  • HopeHarveys

    One for the thumb

  • Joseph Shaw

    KC must be licking their chops.

  • alevin16

    yup

  • pittfan

    #5!! What’s the record?

  • Jay Clam

    Bleach

  • Rick McClelland

    Who called it? There is number 5.

  • NinjaMountie

    welp…that made Dawaare’s day

  • psteelers

    That dam coaching. Tomlin throwing all of those picks. Lol

  • ThatGuy

    GET BEN OUT

  • John Pennington

    Terry got benched time to get Dobbs ready. He can’t move anymore can’t get out of the pocket

  • Douglas Andrews

    Man if that’s all they get out of Hunter I say dress Eli

  • DAWAARE

    hahahahahahahaha

  • HopeHarveys

    I’m really just here for his insights

  • pdupuis

    Alright Ben set a career high in this game!

  • Chad Sanborn

    Remember we have ALL HEALTHY PLAYERS! and this is the best we can do… SMDH.
    QB, Coaches, both need to be called into question this season

  • Matt Hatchett

    Tomlin is the most overrated coach in the NFL. Yes Ben is horrible this year. The emperor has no clothes. It is the truth.

  • Nathanael Dory

    At least Ben is over 300 yards finally lol

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben with the 5 trick

  • Ray Smith

    I can’t believe Tomlin Haley and the Rooney family
    threw 5 interceptions today

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Dude, they’re probably giving away first downs. Just drive and make it a one-score game.

  • Joseph Shaw

    Fifty-five throws against one of the best passing defenses in the league. Great game plan.

  • ThatGuy

    Go Jags

  • Ralph Wagner

    Hey Ben has two touchdown passes unfortunately for the wrong team. LOL There is only one way for the offense to go, that’s up. Oh, 5 turnovers for Big Ben. I see retirement in his future.

    Go Steelers

  • Mrs Bighead

    Time to draft a QB first round next year

  • Jay Clam

    You must be delayed as hell

  • Rick McClelland

    Haley reads this site. Keep posting.

    We’re 7.5 point favorites. We got this. Dumb a$$es.

  • Jimbo

    hmmm, not inspired or motivated properly? coaching

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Gotta be honest, today was all on Ben.

  • psteelers

    Lol, dude jump off a bridge.

  • DAWAARE

    bortles threw 82 yard and won the game goood grief

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    And there’s our hof QB.

  • Jason

    the score dictated that, had he not thrown pick 6’s they would have run a whole lot more

  • Gautam Ramani

    Seriously? Blaming the coach when the franchise throws 5 INT? Even an average QB beats JAX

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yeah, a bit. I was talking about the pick.

  • Ni mo

    5 picks for the hall of fame QB

  • Dorian James

    Didn’t the Bears do that to us to LMAO

  • Jason

    didnt think you could throw for less then Sims and win did you

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Yup, just keep defending them. They can’t ride Ben’s coattails anymore

  • Mrs Bighead

    He’s not HoF

  • Greg Payne

    If I leave now, I can get to the liquor store before it closes.

  • Jay Clam

    Man, Ben is gonna get crucified in the media alllllll week. Well deserved, but still sucks.

  • NinjaMountie

    Sad day. This will take me a good half hour to get over.

  • Kevin Artis

    Ben is done. He hasn’t look good at all this season. He’s thinking about retiring.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Colin Kapernick?

  • Nunya

    If the coaches get credit for big wins, they also get the heat for big losses. It’s that simple. If not, we don’t need coaches at all, do we? They obviously don’t do anything…

  • Ni mo

    Yes he is

  • melblount

    Well, at least Bad Ben broke that ugly streak of non-300 yard games.

    Maybe he can get a 5-pick streak going next week on the road?

  • Dorian James

    Do like me and play some Xbox One

  • Chad Sanborn

    some fan you are

  • Douglas Andrews

    Debbo Deebo Deebo

  • NinjaMountie

    PS4 for me

  • Gautam Ramani

    Maybe he should worry about himself And not call out his WR

  • Jimbo

    full respect to Big Ben for bringing Two rings..But He might already be retired in his head

  • Crashcrash777

    PS4

  • DAWAARE

    i was actually joking about ben throwing another pick ….
    lol
    tony romo , kap is still available

  • Av232

    Why am I still watching this? It’s like a car wreck.

  • Nunya

    Why not? Do they get credit for big wins? Works both ways. Nobody made him keep a terrible Ben in, did they?

  • Ni mo

    He wasn’t done when he mentioned he should have stayed home golfing

  • 2winz

    thats partially true but i dont think thats the main issue. it doesnt seem like the defense is gassed or anything, its more that the defense missing assignments.. bud dupree going inside instead of staying square and containing the outside. but this offense should be a lot better than it is.. i cant understand how we have this much talent and we cant even get 20 pts..

  • pdupuis

    Can they still win this game?

  • pittfan

    Punt return for TD right here
    Book it!

  • Joseph Shaw

    Yeah, I guess. Some truth to that.

  • alevin16

    they have to stop a 3rd and 2 first

  • Applebite

    Johnny Unitas will be brought back from the dead first…

  • Ni mo

    Who cares game over

  • Av232

    Right sentiment, wrong system 😉

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Pretty easy to do when you don’t have to score to win.

  • DAWAARE

    ben is gonna announce his retirement postgame interview.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Don’t kid yourself. They started throwing from the 1st snap of the 1st quarter.

  • Evan Eremita

    But he would be hurt after his first week he here

  • Ray Smith

    Man we should started Mike Tomczak today

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ikr and at this point give em the first down and get out of the stadium

  • Matt Hatchett

    The positive is the Steelers hit rock bottom early in the year. There is time for changes that are much needed. Super Bowl is going not going happen, but we should have know that already.

  • psteelers

    What a way to perform a few days after calling out your teammate….

  • pdupuis

    Game Has been over a long time ago.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Would be nice to have Mahomes waiting in the wings

  • pittfan

    Wanna make it an even half dozen Ben?

  • melblount

    DirecTV is refunding subscriptions over the anthem stuff.

    Just wondering…will they also refund for consistently horrible play by your team?

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    He deserves it.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    In other news, the Bengals beat a good Bills team today.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Mistake to keep
    Him in after INT 3. Should have pulled him like a hockey goalie.

  • NinjaMountie

    Just blame the anthem

  • Chris92021

    Serious changes need to be made:
    1. Fire Todd Haley, promote Fichtner to OC.
    2. Dress James Harrison and play him instead of Dupree. Dupree might be a physical freak but he is a mental midget who is flat out clueless.
    3. Run the offense through Le’Veon Bell, not the quarterback.
    4. Consider firing Keith Butler as well, whose units can’t stop the run to save their lives.
    5. Consider trading Martavis Bryant, who if can’t pick it up by now, will never do it.

  • alevin16

    What is Bubby Brister up to? 😀

  • Ni mo

    This team was over when they kept. Haley and Tomlin

  • psteelers

    Maybe the blog guys will do a story on how Joe Haden almost got beat again, lol

  • Eddie Cruz

    Draft a QB with 1st 3 picks. Maybe we’ll hit on one. Even if we were to win the SB this year it’s time to move on from Ben.

  • Tontokitty Millican

    He used to practice threading his passes what happened to him?

  • NinjaMountie

    hahaha….wow

  • Dorian James

    Time to take the wrapper off of Joshua Dobbs LMAO x 2

  • alevin16

    yup

  • melblount

    Ben the past few weeks: “I need to play better.”

    Ben this week: “I need an enema.”

  • DAWAARE

    Ben Roethlisberger 33/55 312yards 5 int
    Blake Bortles 8/14 95yards 1 int

    lol

  • pdupuis

    Priceless!

  • Joseph Shaw

    Will continue to live and die with ‘em, but I think we have to realign our expectations a little. Playoffs and division title would be good enough for me right now and hope for the best from there.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    I’m actually glad this happened. Ben needs to take long hard look in the mirror.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Steelers would have a chance with him. At least they start out running the football

  • Tontokitty Millican

    Most pathetic display I’ve ever seen in the history of the steelers

  • alevin16

    goodbye farewell amen

  • melblount

    “Mark it down. I’m the man.’

  • Mrs Bighead

    9-7 and a first week exit in the playoffs

  • Michael Mosgrove

    Farking pathetic.

  • Chad Sanborn

    When you have the leagues best WR and a top 5 RB and all your players are healthy and you are losing games like this, you have to wonder where the problem is… just a ridiculously poor showing by our team today and so far this season.

  • Michael James

    Embarassing. Absolutely fecking embarrasing. I’m done folks. It’s plain obvious this team is light years away from being a contender. Season is over for me. See you next draft.

  • Gautam Ramani

    Of on Jesse James blocking

  • NinjaMountie

    Yeah, he does. This was a horrible game.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Not buying this high powered offense stuff again. Unless we rely on LB and the running game first were doomed.

  • pdupuis

    Hopefully!

  • Av232

    Bye

  • melblount

    Hasn’t he been doing that all season already?

  • Ichabod

    from the bench!

  • Michael Conrad

    This will not be more then a 7 or 8 win team. Tucker is better then a couple of the wides on the field.

    Its simple play to win in preseason . Play hard with desire every game. They are what they are because they are not that good. Poor coaching and a player wanting to retire.

  • Rick McClelland

    Those fat women at the buffet are looking better every minute. Maybe they can block?

  • HopeHarveys

    These guys should have to wear Browns uniforms at practice this week.

  • Chad Sanborn

    8-8 at best… book it

  • Matt Hatchett

    This is a discipline and preparation problem

  • Joseph Shaw

    Can we just take a knee?

  • nick harris

    what’s happened to martavis? Did that added muscle slow him down?. He doesn’t seem as fast and elusive anymore like he was a couple years ago. He’s not breaking tackles either. Do you think if he came back this year in the same shape as 2015 he’d be better off?.

  • Jason Vancil

    Stairway To Hell.

  • NinjaMountie

    No. I’ll admit this was a horrendous game but the other games were just mediocre.

  • melblount

    We just need to tackle better on would-be pick sixes and I think we’ll be OK.

  • Douglas Andrews

    He’s sick today

  • Chad Sanborn

    8-8 at best and no playoffs

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    Qb cant get him the ball.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Good thing it’s a great Qb draft class. Can’t wait till they draft another wide out

  • Mrs Bighead

    DIvision might allow it

  • melblount

    Rebuilding year?

  • pdupuis

    #6?

  • Mr. KnowItAll

    When you get blown out like this…you can only hope big changes are to come. Pathetic.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Coach Butler really? Talk about being out coached

  • #beatthepats

    Cant stop the run 5 straight games, .fournette laughed at them

  • DAWAARE

    martavious was cleary irritated by ben’s play ahahahahah

  • Steeldog22

    Book it!

  • Chad Weiss

    Did bell even get the ball once in second half?

  • Matt Hatchett

    Welcome to rock bottom

  • Romel Roze

    Lol

  • Jimbo

    defense needs a new leader..capers?

  • Jeremy McClurg

    If I saw Vontaze Burfict on the side of the rode, I’d hit him with my car.

  • Ichabod

    after another linebacker

  • Mrs Bighead

    The Jaguars…let that sink in

  • Dorian James

    Wow just got an alert 90 yard touchdown run by Leonard fournette you can’t be serious

  • #beatthepats

    Imagine when they face a real qb.bortles flacco keenum glenon kizer- 3-2

  • pdupuis

    WTF would they even have Ben in there?

  • Av232

    I agree with number 3 on your list. If they succeed at that, the other 4 become laughable.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    It looks dire now, but we’ll still win 10 games somehow.

  • NinjaMountie

    Yup….I’m over it. Time to move on.

  • Michael Cunningham

    absolutely .. this is the worst game I’ve seen from them at home since the Noll era

  • melblount

    It can’t get any worse than this…well, at least not until next Sunday.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben should just let the team know now he’s retiring after this year

  • Matt Hatchett

    We are out coached and out played.

  • DAWAARE

    like no joke
    but if they lose to chiefs 6 – 56
    will they actually fire haley and butler?

  • Eddie Cruz

    Maybe we should sign vinny testaverde

  • pdupuis

    Yes you can.

  • Ichabod

    have to do so from 4-4 I think

  • pittfan

    Well that wasn’t fun

  • NinjaMountie

    Nope….I just don’t see them doing that.

  • melblount

    “Ben should just let the team know now he’s retiring after this (game).”

    Cleaned that up for you.

  • Ichabod

    bortles less than 100 yds passing

  • Riverstko

    Don’t care much for the pink terrible towels, maybe give the fans pink shirts. Don’t like the players in pink, not on the football field. Find another way to give money for awareness. Jaguars were not wearing pink. They came to play

  • Douglas Andrews

    LOL!!

  • Ray Smith

    I picked an inopportune time to stop huffing glue

  • Matt

    Agreed. What was he thinking sending Ben out there with instructions to throw the ball to Jaguars defenders the whole second half?????????

  • Jimbo

    anyone thinking deebo and timmons could do better

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Yup, good time to have a weak division.

  • Applebite

    What? Pink Terrible Towels??? No…

  • Ichabod

    does anyone see us beating KC in KC next week

  • Douglas Andrews

    I need a huff after this game geez

  • Evan Eremita

    Booooooo

  • ayub

    Yes. They will show up and play with our emotions again.

  • #beatthepats

    Leveon bell – anthem – brown- these distactions payed for by the football gods. I am now out of my goddam survivor pool to boot ! Dammit!!!!!

  • melblount

    No.

  • Ichabod

    and smoking pot

  • pdupuis

    How can we with losses to Indy & Tennessee coming up?

  • Jimbo

    yes..They have a predictable pattern..

  • DarthYinzer

    Yeah, if we play a high school team there. If we actually play the Chiefs were are going to be obliterated.

  • Eddie Cruz

    You know it’s bad when you stop getting angry at the play of the Steelers. This feels routine. I don’t even get excited anymore. Meh.

  • Jeremy McClurg

    If the first question for Ben in the press room isn’t, “are you sure you don’t want to retire?” I’ll lose it.

  • Ray Smith

    it’s cool MB hooked me up

  • Douglas Andrews

    Could’ve played in his practice uni and been fine.

  • Chris92021

    No. It wasn’t that. We are just not a good football team.

  • NinjaMountie

    Winners and Losers should be brief and easy this week.

  • melblount

    Same here. It was either the Iggles of the Steelers and I was STOOPID.

  • DAWAARE

    no i really think ben is done

  • Jason

    no reason to believe this is any better next week

  • DarthYinzer

    No winners. None.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Lake and Porter were great players but not great coaches. Haley and Butler are not great either. They need quality coaches.

  • pdupuis

    The Bears too!

  • DAWAARE

    shazier

  • DarthYinzer

    Actually, it’s going to be worse.

  • ayub

    Winners: Jaguars
    Losers: Steelers

  • Bastiat

    “We didn’t tackle well today but we made up for it by not blocking.” – J.M.

  • melblount

    Amen.

  • NinjaMountie

    I couldn’t give anyone a winner title after this game.

  • Rick McClelland

    We’re probably 7 point favorites based on some computer program that was designed by Mario and his brother Luigi.

    We’ll have to go another week or two hearing about standing in the tunnel being a–holes in Chicago. That is much more important than getting ready for a football game.

  • DarthYinzer

    Overshadowed by the defense getting pushed around the entire second half.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Truth!

  • J Jones

    AB shoulda exploded on the sideline again this wk. Ben should apologize

  • Ni mo

    He needs to go home and don’t come back

  • Romel Roze

    Ben is horrible. Can’t even complete a simple pass….elite yeah ok.

    He is stealing money from the Steelers and just think they could have moved up not that far in the draft to get Watson.

    Too many QBs in this past draft not to go after one with our 1st pick. Ben is just collecting a paycheck he should have retired..

  • DAWAARE

    ben plz retire …plz

  • DarthYinzer

    Looks like he did this game.

  • capehouse

    Ben is erasing his hall of fame credentials.

  • Ni mo

    Yeah trade Bryant wrong

  • pdupuis

    No!

  • pdupuis

    No, eff no!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Ben’s checked out already

  • SteelCityDefense

    They will blame Tomlin… then Haley… then AB… then Bell… then Bryant… then James… then Colbert… then Butler… then Shazier… and that’s it. P.S. I did like Mahomes in the draft…

  • melblount

    His kids still love him. That’s all that matters (to him, apparently).

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    It wouldn’t be so bad if ben didn’t have legit talent at every offensive position.

  • melblount

    Amen.

  • Chris92021

    Roethlisberger looks like he has checked out mentally. I just hope he does not hold this team hostage like Brett Favre did with the Packers for years.

  • Michael Cunningham

    This team is not focused week to week
    They beat the Ravens and let off the gas
    that is on the coaching AND the veterans .. Ben first and foremost

  • Douglas Andrews

    With Bad Road Ben heck no!

  • SteelCityDefense

    Favre wasn’t even this bad

  • NinjaMountie

    I’m gonna take a nap

  • Jeremy McClurg

    Just glad we’re doing this for Art Rooney

  • melblount

    Yep, it’s time to move on with his life’s work (Thanks Chuck). No mobility equals no chance for him to be good/great.

  • Dee Evolution

    Basically, we need to blow it up and rebuild, right?

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    I said this the other day. Yea we’re winning, but what happens when this offense has to score 30 points to win?

  • melblount

    So somebody still has to represent the AFC North, right?

  • SteelCityDefense

    Kaepernick is better than Ben… … deny it

  • Dee Evolution

    Actually, we just might shock the world. Steelers overachieve against quality teams.

  • Pack

    So let me get this straight we’re playing the best pass defense and the worst run defense in the league. We throw every single play?

  • newguy68

    In case anyone is still wondering; we are still awaiting Ben Roethlisberger’s decision to play Quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers for the upcoming 2017 season.

    Decision could go either way.

  • Mark Cole

    Wake up, we could not run the ball today against one of the worst run defenses in the Nfl more penalties and turnovers and sloppy undisciplined play. The coaching is horrendous. Cmon Tomlin a challenge on that ball in the dirt lose a timeout. Haley is horrible. We need to get rid of both of them. This was a beat down all the way. It’s time for some major coaching changes.

  • Douglas Andrews

    Add in we run the ball up the gut and never press the edges outside the tackles

  • Eddie Cruz

    Exactly. Even though the first play of the game was successful. You could tell the game plan lacked common sense

  • melblount

    “It’s time for some major coaching changes.”

    That time was LONG ago.

  • Jason Vancil

    Ben has half his heart into this thing.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Amen. Tomlin is overrated

  • SteelCityDefense

    I SWEAR TO GOD IF I READ ABOUT BIG BEN DOING RADIO SHOWS THIS WEEK

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    That’s THE biggest problem. This defense is built to play decent and cause a few turnovers. They can’t be depended on. Too young.

  • melblount

    On the bright side, I did get a kick out of the announcer saying, after we went down 23-9, that we are a quick strike team. Those guys spare no time or expense on preparation.

  • Romel Roze

    He is never held accountable. He will say this L is on me….sounds like a talking parrot. Same stuff, different game.

    I would bench him. If he doesn’t retire after this year he will be playing to steal money.

  • Matt Hatchett

    kaepernick isn’t even in the league!

  • I4giveSteelers

    its TIME to change philosophy. Employ players who first are football players, and second athletes. Football players Cam Heyward, Step. Tuit, Mike Hilton, Dirty Red. It hurts me to watch this team, not because they are bad, but because of certain players and coaches; without passion and one of the few places that collectivism is needed.

  • Ray Smith

    In a special rule, the NFL has announced that the football team of Saint Michaels School for the Blind will represent the AFC North for the 2017 playoffs

  • melblount

    Again, if we just focus our offensive practice this week on tackling would-be pick-6’s we’re gonna be OK.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    TIME for Ben to wake up!

  • Michael Cunningham

    Ok sooo … this sucks but …..
    check it
    we have no key injuries
    ODB for the Giants ( about to go 0-5) just broke his leg and looks like D. West for the Ravens just got carted off
    Ben can still get his head out of his a z z and we have all our weapons on O still healthy
    The D overall , especially pass D, is playing well and healthy too.
    We have time and effort we can put in to turn this around.
    Some teams can’t.
    That is all we have to go with today .. but at least it’s something.

  • pittfan

    I have yard work!

  • Douglas Andrews

    Not sure what’s going on with Bud he looked destined to take that next step after last year

  • Chris92021

    This team has serious issues. Average 30 a game? Heck, we can’t even average 20 a game!

    Todd Haley needs to go. He flat out has no idea what he’s doing. We played a team today who has trouble stopping the run but only ran it 20 times, 3 times on the final drive and got away from getting Le’Veon Bell the ball.

    Keith Butler needs to go. His unit is full of great athletes who have no idea where to be. Bud Dupree exemplifies this better than anyone. For every jaw dropping play Dupree makes, he will screw up 5 times, mostly missing his assignment by being in the wrong gap. And James Harrison can’t even get a hat.

    Big Ben looks like he has mentally checked out. This entire team looked like they have mentally checked out. It is pitiful that Mike Mitchell, after stopping Fournette on a long run play, had to get up and try to fire up the team.

    Let’s call it what it is: this team is average at best. They are a 9-7 team that gets the benefit of playing the Browns twice a year. This team looks good on paper but they suck on turf and grass. We should just prepare ourselves for the inevitable end when we lose to Kansas City, Houston, or New England in the playoffs because this team isn’t good enough to go to the Super Bowl right now.

    At best, we back into the AFC North title and get obliterated by whoever draws us first.

  • The Sun is Pro-Black

    We can’t even score 30 points lol

  • pittfan

    Ouch!

  • Chris92021

    It looked like the entire game plan was “let’s make Antonio happy and not have him go off on the sideline again”.

  • melblount

    I was with you until you referenced DuPree making “jaw dropping plays.” Unless you have some film on that, I simply can’t read the rest of your post.

  • Chris92021

    Well, there were a few plays last season lol

  • melblount

    OK, that’s what I thought you were maybe thinking about.

  • Steeldog22

    He didn’t say whether they were good or bad jaw dropping. Lol.

  • melblount

    Don’t you mean “20 points?”

  • Ichabod

    dude…we will not make the playoffs. Bungles win the division.

  • Donald

    Steelers have needed a new QB for at least the past 3 seasons … shoulda encouraged The Big Dummy to go ahead and retire.

  • L Garou

    Ravens up 14 – 0 in Oakland in less than five minutes.
    Joe looks inspired.

  • nick harris

    Sad thing is the defense kept the Steelers in the game til the offense started turning the ball over. Must be frustrating for them that the offense can’t do anything. So much for this being a elite offense. I think road Ben decided to stay home this week.

  • melblount

    Well, at least it was a non-divisional AFC debacle.

  • Donald

    Nuthin’ a new QB wouldn’t cure.

  • Matt Hatchett

    The truth is the coaching leadership and leadership in the locker room isn’t there. These players are not on the same page and it will not get better until ownership gets tired of it. Ben isn’t on the same page with Haley or Tomlin or AB or Bell or Martavis. This is a mess!!

  • I4giveSteelers

    I do know one thing Steeler Nation, this has to be unacceptable. Changes from the top should be made, if excellence is to be interpreted as expected and not an act

  • L Garou

    I’d much rather bring in Johnny Football for a workout.

  • Chad Sanborn

    sadly you might be right

  • Donald

    Yeah, they can start by changing their philosophy of refusing to draft a QB til this past offseason. Ben ain’t the guy … they’ve been winning in spite of him, except in the biggest games against teams like the Pats.

  • I4giveSteelers

    I hope the Steeler money guys demand changes this week

  • 2winz

    with this kind of offense, we should be jumping out to leads causing teams to throw more which will play to our defense’s strengths. but something needs to give offensively. this is unacceptable!

  • L Garou

    (zone defense)

  • Steeldog22

    Haley is lost. Offense is a rudderless ship with no identity. Butler can coach the last game but not the current one. Lack of discipline by the D (though they were OK today until they were on the field too long) and rarely any adjustments. Ben is old. He’s not a mental whiz at the game anyhow and Father Time has caught up on the physical side. We have talent on both sides of the ball which is good enough, but with meh coaching and QB play, it’s going to be a long year.

  • Donald

    It’s past time for a new QB and I place the blame on Colbert and his staff.

  • I4giveSteelers

    its not how about getting there, but HOw you get there. No respect at all for parts of this team

  • John A Stewart

    Lol you can’t make this up

  • melblount

    Remember all that Super Bowl season talk…BEFORE we even landed in Latrobe?

  • Chad Sanborn

    Ben and Co lose again next week and by the time we play the Lions in 3 weeks, we will have a new starting QB. Book it.

  • Chad Sanborn

    raise you hand if you called how bad we were going to be during the preseason?

  • Eddie Cruz

    Won’t happen unless Ben is injured.

  • PTownSteelTown

    Our OLBs can’t set an edge, AB is the only wideout that can run an NFL route, MB can’t get open or make contested catches, and Ben/Haley aren’t using what weapons they have – TEs, FB (power run football), PA fakes… Offense is predictable and defense has a gigantic achilles heel

  • Donald

    Good one!

  • L Garou

    The Giants just went (0 – 5).
    At least there’s that.. (lol)

  • Chad Sanborn

    I think they will fake an injury to save face and get him out of there. I see 2 picks probably next week and another loss 35- 17

  • Chad Sanborn

    Bungles won. and look like they have some amount of life.

  • I4giveSteelers

    Ben, for a longtime has not had a warrior mentality(football player)

  • pdupuis

    Haley only for me, right now anyway. May change by end of season.

  • I4giveSteelers

    Bill a cheat has always used his talent to the most highest of levels. Tomlin cant even get a mathematics down( play clock). If it wassnt jacks. i would have loved watching this smart smash football way.

  • Donald

    Sad, but true.

  • pdupuis

    This would be the last game Haley would serve as OC if I were running things. Too much talent to be held to 9 points.

  • I4giveSteelers

    smash moth

  • Pack

    I don’t even know what to say at this point. I’m not a fire everyone person, but someone explain to me how that throw every play made sense. Ben hasn’t looked good these first 5 games why would you rely on him to win this game? Bell looked great why didn’t we just run the clock out? they didn’t really stop him until they realized we can’t complete any passes.

  • melblount

    17 on the road in KC is a real stretch.

  • melblount

    I can’t bear to count…just exactly how many offensive TDs have we scored this season (that is, with the best offense on paper)?

  • Chad Sanborn

    as I have said a thousand times on this board. The team has NO IDENTITY! are we run first? pass first? 50/50? Are we dink and dunk? are we downhill long ball? So far we have been all those thing and none of them successfully. That’s on Haley and Tomlin.

  • Chad Sanborn

    I see 10 until late 4th quarter and 7 more in garbage time

  • #beatthepats

    Kareem hunt will go for 150.butler will put in the dime defense late in the game and hope 160 lb mike hilton maintains his gap integrity. and blame missed tackles LET Hargrave play the whole game please…… activate harrison and stop the run.

  • melblount

    Got ya. Thanks for clarifying.

  • 6 ring circus

    I got a three day weekend, in Jax, sadly enough… Avoid the radio, wear just a Steeler hat and continue with life. It’s worth living!
