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 think rotate is coaching code word for if Glow doesn't play better Reed will get his job.   One huge thing that everyone talks about when it comes to Oline thats not a stat is synergy between the 5. The more all 5 start together, the more synergy they have together, the better the line plays.   I think its every teams goal to have as much consistency at Oline as possible. So to me rotating makes no sense.
    • I feel bad for him and had very high hopes for Blackmon, but think he is an average to below average safety when healthy Getting him back next year, isnt a solution that will bring much difference to one the worst pass defenses in football   We arent getting much PR, but at least a percentage of the extremely poor pass defense is the safety play   We need a playmaking safety, to go with the need of an additional pass rusher (even if its a 3rd down guy that can rotate in)   I hope we invest in the off season (again) for these two critical spots, until we find the right guys     The good news.... sarcasm alert.....  we cant be the 38th ranked pass defense       
    • Now we just need a good Lt
    • PPR 20 players. Can't decide between Davante Adams or DeAndre Hopkins. Adams has a good connection with Rodgers, and I like the Arizona-Houston matchup. I'm not sure how many targets Hopkins would get, though, if Arizona has a large lead.  They might go to the running game instead. 
    • Multiple thought post alert:   I liked Dayo as a potential draft pick long before he hurt his achilles late in the year.  Afterwards, I totally forgot about him as I thought he would be off the draft board, but I was happy that Ballard liked him and thought that he was a first round player. I wanted Ballard to get one of the LTs at 54 or trade down to take Spencer Brown, but taking Dayo sort of muted the miss on a OT because I liked him as a replacement tweener for Lewis before his injury.   Dayo is a tweener.  Plays DE on "running downs" and DT (in place of Grover) on "passing downs".  His job as DE is not to get sacks, per se, so any statistical analysis or rankings that compare him to other NFL LDEs might be a poor measure of evaluating Dayo.   In modern NFL where there are more mobile QBs than pocket QBs, Dayos job will be to hold the edge and keep the QB contained in the pocket so that Paye and Defo can collect the sacks.  Dayo will get his sacks when the QB is chased or is trying to escape.  Compare this approach to the typical Robert mathis type of LDE that loops around the RT.  In the days of pocket passers like Marino and Brady, Mathis's would approach the QB from nearly directly behind them.  In today's NFL, that type of LDE will leave a gaping hole for the Mahomes, Allens. and Lamars to run through.       Dayo will have the QB come to him, whereby his length can disrupt the escape, redirect it, or even get a sack.    Dayos sacks will not come from him running to the QB, but from the QB running to him.  That's going to make comparing his stats to other LDEs stats almost moot if the other LDEs have a more "get to the QB" approach.  Also, since Dayo will be holding the mobile QB in the pocket, Paye's rankings and sack stats will be inflated when compared to RDE that have a LDE that allows the QB to escape.   Separate thought:   At 6'6 285, Dayo runs the risk of filling out more as young humans tend to do when they hit their mid 20s.  Since our 43 does not employ a traditional fatty NT, if Dayo would gain 10 to 15 pounds he could displace Grover as the NT...perhaps even become a 3 down NT to pair with 3 down 3T Defo.....so, Dayo puts the risk on Grovers future contract rather Defos, IMO.   But who knows, injuries to Defo or Grover, or Dayos ability or inability to maintain weight, or gain it, is going to influence his future way more than we can predict today.   As of today, he is a tweener who is not really expected to collect the sack stats as some others in the NFL might, JMO.
