Until Ben retires I don't think the Steelers will ever have an easier path to a SB victory. I'm not saying it was easy- but it doesn't get easier than this. It could have been even easier if they actually put the foot on the gas and seized control of the Patriots game when they had one of the best offenses in football vs a banged up and horrible defense instead of turtling. But predictably, Tomlin and Haley turtled.


Not too mention we would have played Tenn which I dont think even Tomlin could have fucked up.

Meanwhile, a physical Jax team would have went to Foxboro. Now they likely lose but it would have been a hard hitting game so maybe NE limps into Heinz somewhat.

But Tomlin doesn’t live in his fears. Nor does he ever see the big picture and do what is needed to seize the moment.

He pissed away the #1 seed with his idiocy and then got smacked in the mouth by a more physical but far less talented team he yet again wasn’t prepared for.

He’s a dunce.


THis and this alone amid all the dozens of fireable shit and incompetance........ simply amazing.

Actually in watching that game again, the focus of the gameplan was to keep Bortles in the pocket and not necessarily to beat blocks and get to Fournette in the backfield before he picks up steam. Way to much thinking, reading and reacting as opposed to attacking.


Fournette wasn’t getting TOUCHED until he was 2+ yards past the LOS on what percentage of plays?

We only had one stop for a loss, besides the BB fucking fumbled snap, all at Heinz?

UN-REAL

The #1 issue with the defense in that game is that Sean Spence fucking sucks and they couldn't or wouldn't take him off the field for anybody else.


Is that the #1 issue? Perhaps. But let's not pretend that Bud Dupree doesn't suck. That Bince Williams isn't a liability all too often. That Jason Hargrave took a step back and got his ass absolutely shellacked at times this year. That neither Sean Davis nor Artie Burns is anything to write home about. But I'm sure all that will work itself out once Tomlin puts his finishing touches on everything.

Let's also not forget that Tomlin was apparently perfectly OK with the paper fucking thin depth at linebacker going into this season. What happened to Shazier was horrific- but let's not act as if it was completely unforeseeable that he would miss time in 2017 at some juncture.

Bud Dupree doesn't suck. If there are 64 edge guys in the NFL, he's better than 32, as is Watt. Bince played pretty well for what he is tasked to do. Maybe tried to do too much once Shazier went out. Sean Davis played alright. Artie Burns is your guess is good as mine. Sometime looks like he's on the verge of becoming a great player and other times makes asinine mistakes.

This team, and defense, largely feasted on bad teams led by back-up or shit QB's. They were a paper tiger all year, carried purely by Bell, AB and Ben for the most part.

Butler said in an article back in Aug(?) that Tomlin has a lot of input on both sides of the ball and is very involved.

EMR won't fire Butler because Butler passed up jobs waiting for Lebeau to leave, and EMR won't pull the rug out after just a few years.


Looking forward to 9-10 wins next year and, if we're lucky, maybe another playoff game.

You're right. To continue with the class act perception he'll wait till Butler's contract is up and simply not rehire him, ala re:Todd. All about perception. Nothing to do with championships.
