    Ed and I share the same opinion, but you agree with only one of us. This is what happens when you let your feelings trump sound thought and reason.

    the biggest thing I took from the game was that this team is exactly what I (and many others) thought it was after week 1….the offense is not going to score a lot and they are going to have to win with defense. Nothing has changed except for injuries.

    You would hope the O could get well, so to speak, over what is on pace to be the worst D in NFL history, though. It appears that our O will be the get well game for struggling defenses.

    I was s speaking to the fact that Tomlin never makes adjustments and Carroll did. That's WTF.

    You keep pulling out that meaningless pseudo-statistic. Five games is way too early to start talking about a team being historically bad in a particular category. The Seahawks also have some recent history of sorting out their defense as the season goes on. Also, as I asked previously, haven't you pointed out that we should measure by points, not yards? Now you want to switch to yards so you can make the Seahawks out to be even worse on defense than they really are.

    I could play that game, too, if I wanted to use statistics to mislead rather than to inform. The Broncos have held four of their six opponents under 100 yards rushing and the Ravens needed yards in garbage time to reach 102, but the Steelers trampled them for 147 yards on the ground. What a great running attack!

    See?

    The difference is that Bouchette is a professional and you are allowing your negative feelings to trump sound thought and reason.

    I didn't hear or read Bouchette's actual comments, so I'm not sure I get his thinking. Maybe it was the poor showing by the defense? If it was the offense that got him speaking that way, I am surprised he expected any different. That unit is very much a work in progress and their upside is limited, at least for this season.

    I'm not "pulling it out", I saw it pulled out by multiple NFL reporters last week.

    When they introduced him on the Fan this morning, they asked if he felt better or worse about the team after the game and he said worse, and that it was the most hollow victory he could remember.

    Didn't mince words.

    I mean that you keep trotting it out in discussions of the game as if it has more meaning than it really does. You are using hyperbolic clickbait rather than thoughtful analysis.

    Again, that doesn't tell me why he sees it that way. I'm not particularly optimistic about this year's team, either, though they are at least well on their way to making a mockery of your thread that argued that it was going to be hard to find three more wins the rest of the season. I guess you think they are going to lose 11 in a row.

    Ed is the most hollow slime ball you can come across. This team wasnt good before the game. What planet was he on to try to stay relevant on earth with his stupid opinion?

    You seem bitter. You also have no idea what you are talking about regarding Bouchette. You do realize you can just disagree with the guy's opinion, right?

    Yeah it's my 1st year watching. LoL.
    Look this Up...it may surprise You. A lot of teams struggle against back ups for a few games. Look it up. They don't know tendencies, or How the Offense will call a game for them. Happens all the time. Not just 2 the Steelers.
    Do I like it. Hell No, but it's not like it just happens 2 Us. That's all I'm saying.

    Are you unaware this is exactly what you do?

    And actually Glenn does not?

    You looked somewhat foolish the first time you posted this. Then you doubled down.
