How about the first victory at M&T in five seasons?
Even the 4-12 Ravens swept the Steelers a few seasons ago.
This is big, and by the way they got it largely on the ground. You cannot disrespect 173 yards of rushing offense at a conference rival who has largely owned you in their house.


To the bolded...

I don't care. We need points.

The approach we have taken to this point in the season will get us beat by the top teams in the PS... and it should.

The Ravens were garbage today coming off a garbage performance last week.

I get it, the offense needs to improve in the RZ. And less than 50% third down efficiency isn't great. But this team knows better than anyone how to beat yours. So I'm taking it and moving on.

I'm glad we got the win.

How many teams have run the football on first down in the entire league more than the Steelers thru 4 games?

How many teams have run the football on 2nd and long in the entire league more than the Steelers thru 4 games?

We are NOT a SERIOUS Lombardi contender unless the coaching staff changes philosophy.

Our first trip into the RZ today... we never threw the football into the EZ or past the first down marker.

Philosophy has to change or we will be merely a pretender and not one of the big boys.

I would just point out our only passing TD came with Ben holding the ball, and holding the ball, and holding it some more and directing JuJu to make a play.

Happy Bitching Time!

1. Never a bad win vs. the Ravens. WOOT!

2. Big Ben still isn't online.

3. LeVeon was a massive idiot. Gotta take the damn money when it's in front of your face. Tomln is in full Willie Parker "'til the wheels fall off" mode.

We don't want to go to DEN in the playoffs, either.

I told someone today after the first drive...

We could have engineered that drive with Landry Jones at qb.

On a JuJu note... so far so good with him.

Only three things marred the game for me.

3 times they get to red zone and come away with two FG

3rd Q play calling almost cost the game

The 50+ yard run the rats had


Othwise the debate is style points. I get that Haley is a limitation. But going into Baltimore and coming away with a near dominant victory is always a cause for celebration. There are fewer and fewer walks in the park. Ask the patsies and falcons. Everybon is a good win just like every loss is a bad loss, by my way of thinking

I think we all did. And the problem is you can't just flip the switch to play 60 minutes of ball against good teams in the playoffs.

Honest question - how many times did we run play action today? I'm struggling to remember a single play.

This was isn't meant to pile on Haley b/c I'm of the belief everybody deserves blame for the offense.

We started to run out the clock from our first possession of the third quarter instead of building on a strong close to the half and try to put this team away early in the third.

I think we had 25 combined first and second down plays in the second half....
And we ran the ball on 21 of those plays. I'd have to watch again for PA....
But that third quarter screamed for PA.

Wow. ....you can count on this team dropping 2 games a year being unprepared and unfocused. Count on the coaches losing us another game or two. Basically, this team starts with a max of 12-13 wins (should come as no surprise Tomlin has never won more than 12 in a season).

We have played maybe the 4 worst qbs in the league so far
With flacco being maybe the worst
Flacco was awful today and looks to me like he could give a shit.

3-1 is 3-1 and we look easily the best in the north
Really oookimg forward to seeing timsteam against a good QB

Ravens o line is a total shambles right now. What does Flacco have at receiver? Watson his TE is his best catcher. I will add that Flacco is a tough sob. Dollars to donuts I bet his back is still fucked up more than people think.

I remember at least one play action pass today.

I think Tomlin had very little respect for Baltimore's offense, and when the Steelers got to 19 points, he figured he had all the points he needed. So he didn't mind going for 2, and clearly he turtled the entire second half. Worriesome? Maybe. I'm going to trust that when the Steelers have a lead against a team with an actual offense, then they won't turtle so early. If somehow we get up by 19 on the Patriots, I bet the Steelers keep playing to score. It will be good to see how the Steelers handle a team with a good offense.

You think they'll draft a guy to have him sit for two years, make Flacco the highest paid backup of all-time, or take a big cap hit to cut him?
