    It is incredible to me how a player who never actually makes any plays on the ball is routinely burned because he thinks he is going to make a play on the ball. I've never seen anything like it. Usually gamblers hit on a gamble every once in awhile.

    Artie quit on Tomlin. He was just out there going through the motions last year.

    Always remember friends when you watch college football players most of
    them are going to be getting on with their lives work. The key in evaluation
    can these players transition into the pro game?

    Davis improved, but he still isn't very good. He also made arguably the worst single mistake by a Steeler last season when you consider the pure stupidity involved in the play and the impact. Philip Rivers threw what should have been a final nail in the coffin interception in the second half of the Steelers loss to the Chargers. Joe Haden had the ball and Davis drilled him because he was flying around out of control and without looking where he was going.

    The Steelers just weren't consistent enough to win the Super Bowl last season and the Brown drama could have played out during a playoff run, but that team should have been in the playoffs and I do think it is fair to lay a significant portion of the blame for the loss to the Chargers on Davis.

    So the biggest mistake was Davis flying uncontrolled into Haden and preventing the interception? You don't possibly think the bigger mistake that was repeated throughout the game was the failure to cover the slot receiver who was gouging your defense for big gains with something better than a LB or zone coverage?

    That was a series of plays. If you are going to point to one single mistake, it was Davis. The Chargers' rally never gets started if Haden intercepts that pass.

    Also, I was talking about mistakes by players, not coaches.

    Keenan Allen had 148 yards and a touchdown no one employed by the Steelers, players or coaches did anything to stop him that is what cost them the game.

    Again, that is a series of plays. Also, it was a coaching error. I was talking about one mistake by one player.

    So when you make this statement we should all be able to read your mind and know that you mean one play by one player?

    That seems to be awfully small especially given the statement of "significant portion of the blame for the loss" even though it has been pointed out and conceded by you that a series of plays and a coaching error directly affected the outcome.

    Actually, I wrote as much in my post, that it was the worst mistake by a Steeler. That I used the singular form mistake means it was one thing. I thought Steeler was clear enough that I was talking about a player, though I can see how some might be confused.

    Many things had to go wrong for the Steelers to blow that lead against the Chargers. The worst single mistake among them was what Davis did given the combination of the stupidity of the play and the impact it had on the outcome.
