Pretty good coverage and Brown still catches it. Like I said not our night. Still 6-6 = 1st in the Division. Andrew is getting healthy and we still control our destiny on who wins the Division. I am not in panic mode as a fan.

Not an attack on you but I don't get this mentality. We can't play with good teams who cares if we win our division. We will probably be 1 and done for the playoffs. Im tired of us getting worked by good teams only for us to feast on bad ones.

Bad games happen. I guess us beating Denver in the Playoffs wasn't a great win or beating KC in 2013 wasn't? Just asking. We have had a ton of great wins against Good to Great teams. Tonight we just laid an egg.

I remember those, Peyton was hurt and played like Peyton in the playoffs and Charles got hurt in the 1st or 2nd run play. The Chiefs were not great that year.

And we didn't have Andrew tonight and yes that even affects our Defense because we had no Offense to put pressure on the Steelers.

I get what your saying just feel like this happens to us a lot  the last couple years. Good coaches don't let this happen.

Yeah I know, we all want a SB team so I see your frustration, I don't like this either but I kind of seen this coming. Not the score but the loss. Hopefully we get it together the next few weeks.

Oft repeated myth. Lots of good teams with good coaches get blown out, especially on the road, especially with a backup QB. 

We clearly have some frustrating issues that continue to pop up, but this idea that losing to good teams is a reflection of bad coaching is false. It's more a reflection of a problematic roster.

    • I wanted to rewatch the game before I posted anything on this because I came away with the feeling we didn't do much outside of a handfull of big plays on offense and the same on defense.   So, final thoughts...   Offense Good to see some explosive plays!! But... Outside of the 2 big plays to Campbell and Hilton, Wentz didn't have a good day at the office. 11/20, 223 yards, 2 TDs to 9/18, 120 yards, 1 TD without those plays.  Of course if we didn't have to do all that much outside of those big plays. Also, we're still seeing examples of him holding the ball too long. Taylor is a beast and I just don't get the idea of only getting him 14 carries. He's averaging 14,5 carries per game with a low of 10 and a+ high of 17. It's ridiculous. Seemed like Hines was only in the game to tire the defense and set them up for Taylor. That's a shame I think. He's one of our a biggest playmakers in my opinion. It was great to see Hilton out there again! I honestly had written him off as done, with last years performance and his injury this year, but he proved me wrong. Campbell is a bust. That has been my opinion for some time now, but I really thought he was going to prove me wrong with that 51 yard TD. Then he got injured... again. Best ability is availability. He isn't. Mo had a good TD catch, but should've had another. His second drop I blame Wentz for - bad placement. Had a great block on Taylor's 2nd TD. Pittman had 2 solid grabs and a few good blocks down the field but not much outside of that. Fisher sucks. He's not far removed from an achilles injury, but he still has a long way to go. Hoping he'll improve because right now it's looking like Ballard crapped the bed on this one - Leno is doing great. The rest of the Oline is putting in solid work right now and it's hopefully only going to get better with Q and Smith returning... even if Smith didn't play his best up until his injury. Defense Loved Leonards reaction after the first play being a false start on Houston.  I hate this defensive scheme with a passion. We gave up a 67% completion rate and 243 yards to a rookie and 124 yards rushing. That's concerning in my book. Still, we showed up and made some important turnovers, because without them it could have gotten ugly.  Happy to see Paye on the field again and with an interception of all things - I'm not accepting anything else, that call getting turned over was a joke even if it ultimately benefitted us. Still not nearly enough pressure from our Dline - they didn't have Tunsil on the field. I needed to see some sacks from our DEs. Ya-Sin is having a good season so far. Good for him and us! Willis had a good game, I think, as did Leonard, Moore and Okereke. Fantastic interception by Rodgers late in the game. Overall a lot of good things and something to build on. Now we just need to do it against the good teams and especially against the Titans.   Lastly, we beat one of the worst teams in football, comfortably, and we should have if we want to get to the playoffs. We have to beat the good/great teams if we want to get anywhere IN the playoffs and we haven't been able to for some time now. We had a good game against the Ravens up until we collapsed in the 4th quarter, and they just manhandled the Chargers. That's encouraging and heartbreaking all at the same time. I would like to see us beat at least one of either the Bills, Bucs or Cardinals this year, but we still have a long way to go to be one of the elite teams.
    • 17 games, 7 playoff teams, weak division   There's a long way to go.
    • Wentz looked damn good from the pocket.  He threw some dimes.  The TD Mo Allie dropped was the definition of a perfect pass.    
    • Was it his ankle he’s having trouble with?   seemed better with lateral movement and it sure seemed when he tried to sprint he pulls up.   he’s a straight up savage!   Go Colts!
    • Interesting that 4 of the top 6 include a guy drafted in the 4th, one in the 5th, one in the 6th and an UDFA.    Q is better than all of them (though Teller has really made a case the last year+ to be in that conversation). But paying $22-23M for a LG just seems really high. Going to be interesting to see what the final numbers look like when they do it.
