STEELERS THREAD

It both was and wasn't a high pressure kick for Daniel. Make or miss, the Raiders are in. If he missed it, though, there would have been the hue and cry from Pittsburgh that he missed it on purpose to keep them out of the playoffs.

The ironic part in all this is that I think SD's coach messed up by calling a timeout. The Raiders were not being overly aggressive in their play calling, and at that point of the game, they didn't need to be...sort of a "we're trying, sorta, but not going to kill ourselves. If you stop us, OK."

After the timeout, it was like they said "OK, you dumb MFers, you think YOU can still win and knock us out? Watch this.

I bet they would have tried the FG from 56 if they hadn't gained a yard. 

Anyway, good luck, Steeler fans...enjoy one last run with Big Ben.

I think we will play them much closer this time but their talent will overcome the grit we bring. We shall see.

I agree, but iffense stinks with this college coordinator, a terrible OL they assembled to protect an aging QB, and Ben will to dump off more and more, with very little explosion attempts down the field.

We just won't be able to score enough points...I just hope we do score some in the first half, which lately has been non existent.

Big Ben gave us some amazing moments in his 18 year career! It will be odd not seeing 7 behind center next season.

As for the rest, we need serious upgrades. Youth and speed. Coaching changes. OL needs overhauling. A lot of work this off season.

Yes, get some help on that OL so Najee can run wild.

AN a a NFL OC, and better WRs that can hold on to 5-7 yard passes that hit you in the hands.

They hand tied Ben with a mediocre OL, and that hurt the rest of the offense, including Ben's lack of accuracy on deeper throws.

I am not impressed with Matt Canada. Our best shot at winning Sunday was an up tempo approach the entire game. Outside of that we need a better O line, better receiving and better linebacker play to go along with better corners.

Yea, was expected. Maybe suggested. Interesting to see what MT does and how much control if any he gives.
