    The Steelers lead the league with most negative yardage plays on offense.

    23% of run plays yielded negative yards and 18% of pass plays gained negative yards.

    We have to get rid of the Canada backward offense next year.

    Steelers need to upgrade both lines. No OC can be successful with an O-line that gets consistently abused in the trenches.

    I find these stats hilarious.

    I remember sticking up for Fichtner last year and complaining about his firing.

    I'm curious how much of that is DJ catching a pass, then running five yards back trying to get the edge.

    I simply don’t understand how we’ve had 3 OCs in a row who all want to call WR screens every other play, with about 1 in 50 being successful.

    And yet, here they are in the playoffs.

    Would you rather be pretty and lose
    or ugly and win?
