    First the Bell situation, looks like he will legit sit out 10 weeks and after that as I’ve mentioned how the F can you play a guy scared to get hurt? So he is basically gone for the season IMO wether they trade him, sit him, or he never shows.

    Then you get week 1 vs the worst team in the NFL and blow a 21-7 lead with under 8 mins in the game. Typical Tomlin lead collapse with Ben who sits out the entire preseason looking horrible.

    Now we are starring at being down Ben Decastro and Haden for week 2.

    I mean this feels like an absolute disaster. Season could be over before it began.

    Quick. Run to the closest bathroom. Grab a towel and throw it.

    Meanwhile, I'll sit back and watch one game at a time.

    Yea that’s true one game at a time. I’m sure Dobbs is ready to lead us.

    I think at the end of this season you will be saying that the Browns won't be the worse team.

    That team has much more talent on it than the last two years.

    Matty, you are kind of making HeinzMustard look like an optimist.

    Agreed. They're going to shock a few teams.

    That tie was bad. But it wasn't quite as bad as it appeared. We'll be ok. It's not how you start, after all.

    We haven’t even lost a game and the season is already over? Lol come on. We are fine. There’s 15 games left. Plenty of time for freaking out, no need to start now

    Yep. Meanwhile the Browns fans are probably believing their team is going 15-0-1.

    It’s the mentality of our fans sometimes. I can’t tell you how many times my Browns fan friends say they are going 8-8, 9-7, 7-9 to see their team win between 0-3 games. It’s crazy, but they believe anyways.

    When we drop a game or two to teams that are “worse” than us and people around here act like we will never win again. Like miss the playoffs, top 10 pick etc because we lost a game we shouldn’t have, or tied the Browns lol or that somehow being able to understand or not freak out over it means we have “losers mentality”...

    I’m almost 30 and we haven’t had a losing season since I was in middle school. The second most recent losing season... I was 10. We’ve had 4 losing seasons since I was born. It’s insane. Literally no other fan base in the NFL can say the same. How spoiled we get sometimes.... we should enjoy having talent and winning games, but sometimes we don’t. I understand being upset with underperforming sometimes, but we really need to understand how good we have it.

    Enough with the sky is falling crap. One game. We will move on and win plenty of football games this year.

    They will if they sit Tyrod Taylor. His only asset is his ability to get outside the pocket.

    This is as close to a MUST WIN in week 2 for the Steelers I have ever seen.

    Lose to the Chiefs at home and then you are headed to Baltimore where they almost ALWAYS lose by 3 points.


    0-2-1 it would take a massive win streak just to grab a wildcard...and you can forget about being at home through out.

    Its not about losing 1 game or tying or whatever the hell that was.

    It’s the overall state of the team. Bell has caused major issues and by the way he’s the best RB in the league and may not play a down for us this year.

    Plus now we have Ben already questionable after 1 game a key guy in Haden out for multiple weeks and the best guard in football with a broken hand.

    Sorry if I’m not thrilled about how things are shaping up.

    And worst of all Tomlin is still roaming the sidelines.

    That's the thing about the NFL, only 16 games so each one has huge importance.

    I think we play better when we are facing adversity or are underdog's. Seems we get hurt when we are expected to win against teams with losing records.
