We are as bad as any 3-1 team in recent memory. We're still 3-1.

Our schedule looks to get a lot tougher. I've not seen that this team is capable of winning more than 9-10 games (thanks to 6-0 against the horrid AFCN).

The excuses and free passes have to end. Things need to change or....changes need to be made.


AB can pout about his numbers. He earns it and no one works harder. I'd like to have about 53 AB's on the team, and another 7-8 coaching the team.

I don't know. I see the pieces. Need to put everything together.

I see the pieces, too. We are 1/4 of the way thru the season - why does it still look like Wk2 of preseason?

This has been the MO with Haley from Day 1 - no flow or continuity in the playcalling....and they pound sand 2 out of 3 plays and then rely on guys winning individual match-ups. I think it actually takes some effort to be as bad as we've been the first 4 games.

I actually see a lot of talent on both sides of the ball. Lots. It's a very good football team with some poor coaching right now. The question is whether we can win in spite of the coaches. Are we that good? We will find out.

It's stuff like running on 3rd & 8. They had already determined the FG was good enough. Then he misses it.

Hard to complain about a win against Baltimore on the road and it was good (needed) to get Bell going.

I really hope they expand the offense rather than run it entirely thru Bell.

Time to step it up.

I still feel like the Steelers are a few plays from dominating.

Yeah, we saw this last year.

Haley looks pretty good when Bell is running the ball. Imagine that. Haley is lazy and stupid - shutdown/contain Bell and this is a 20ppg offense.

If we're talking ONLY the first half of today's game.

1 good half of football. 7 pretty mediocre halves. There is no way a well-coached team isn't 4-0. This is a trend that has been going on for years - we have dumb coaches running a country club.

That describes not just Haley but most of the coaching staff. I think by and large the coaching culture is getting by is good enough.

Ding ding ding

I'm telling you...when Ben hangs it up, AB is going to lose his shit and probably strangle a coach on the sideline.
