Yep. The Steelers are just as just as "on and off" as we are. Look like world beaters one week, then total crap the next. I just hope we find a way to contain Bell. His vision and patience has improved from last season.

I think the above can be said about every NFL team this season.

Dallas looked pathetic against Philly
Philly looked awful against Green Bay
Green Bay looked awful against the Saints
San Fran looked awful against Seattle, St Loius and Cjicago
Seattle looked awful against Carolina
Cincy looked awful against Cleveland
Baltimore looked awful against Cincy
New England looked awful against KC

Yeah it's very true on any given day teams come out of the gate cold
and get behind and never recover. Some teams blast out hot and then stop playing and get their brains beat in. Besides the Dallas game the Saints have been competitive but lose the games down the stretch that
they used to win.

I don't think it's the weather we have to worry about. When we get the ball to the 2 yard line and run 3 times at a Ravens defense that's known to stop the run we're in trouble. You all know if we would have thrown the ball 3 times that would have been a TD and changed the tempo of the entire game.

I dont either. Brees is doing the best he can with what he has to work with currently. Last game the oline didn't protect and the defense let the ravens score almost everytime they got the ball. Forced drew to have to score touchdowns and pass to keep the team in the game.

Yea he threw a pick 6, but the oline was collapsing almost instantly again for the 50th time and he had to rush the pass or get sacked almost instantly...
he still had 420+ yards , 3 TDS and almost an 80 percent completion rating while under constant pressure.

Look at brady. They fixed thier o line issues compared to the start of the season and he is just tearing teams apart.

^This^

I think the problems on Offense are fairly easy to fix. Drew needs a strong interior line. Beef up the interior of the O-line and Drew can step up, plant his feet and throw with more velocity and accuracy. OG's and OC's aren't nearly as expensive as most other positions so it should be easily accomplished.

Also with Drew being short it would help with his down-field line of sight. Some of his picks looked like he simply couldn't see the defender. Do they make high heel cleats? Platform cleats perhaps?

And we will still make the playoffs.

Ah, the beauty of playing in the worst division. A win would be great but a loss and odds are no ground lost. Only two more games like this though. after that we have to get off of social welfare and earn a paycheck.

Weather is the least of our problems right now...

If anything, it may slow down Pittsburgh's passing attack so we can hang...
