Serious trouble is lurking

Oct 3, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin chooses words more carefully and deploys them with a precision far superior to that of your average postgame soloist, so when he simultaneously invoked and then disparaged "mystical" Sunday, it validated every suspicion that he was coaching a team in serious trouble.

The fans have known about the Steeler's problems since the start of this season. The coaches should have known long before the fans, since they are the professionals!

Booberts will come on talking trash about 'one for the thumb' but in the not too distant future they will have as many SB losses as the Bills, Vikes and Broncos. The only ring Booberts has is when he pulls that thumb out of his....

So you see them getting to the SB on a consistent basis. Interesting. I'll take that, though if they do, they're going to win far too many to ever join those losers you mention.

The Steelers O-line is currently an embarrassment, but it's really only the tackle position they're struggling with, and with the kind of shrewd personnel moves they tend to make, they'll fix it twice as quickly as a dysfunctional organization like the Bears would.

losses? that would be 2. sb appearances...that would be 8. sb victories?...that would be 6. hate to be the one to keep you current but the thumb ring was about 6 years ago dipsh!t. lmao! and how many sb victories have you celebrated drooly? the steelers are 2-2 this season. so what? if they go 2-6 i will concede the season is in the trash. until then come up with something of substance rather than coming online and chirping like a bird. fool.

LMAO....as I see on the threads and blogs, no one seems to see the Texans as maybe a sleeper team that has finally came of age and might be someone no one wants to play? It is still early and the next two weeks will pretty well start stacking the teams up as far as who is the team to beat in each division. The Steelers have just found out what the Colts already knew from the last couple of years, DON'T overlook the Texans, they are hungary for a young team and now have a defense. Best team in Texas for sure...

the texans looked pretty good to me. if they can maintain their level of play they are in the playoff for sure. once there my guess is no wants to play a smashmouth running team.

I had to laugh at this one because it's 100% truth! The Bears' organization is too busy drafting elf hunchbacks to actually build an O-line worth anything.

i'm not so sure the steelers are any good at drafting o line prospects either. they are great at finding d line and linebackers but usually finish too high in the season rankings to get a high draft pick (and that's when the great o lineman are drafted).

The Texans are validation of the Peter Principle. Wade Phillips is an excellent D Coordinator but a lousy head coach. Last year the Texans could score but their D couldn't stop anybody. No wthey can et a lead, protect it and play smashmouth (as much as you can play smashmouth with a zone blocking scheme)
