I don't even need to tell you how this one went...
final

Feel free to "unleash hell" in the comments.

It isn't going to change anything.

OR, you could use your time a little more constructively...

Someone call a psychiatrist.

We've got a bipolar defense on our hands...

    I think it's safe to say that the secondary flat-out blows. I've never seen a group of corners consistently give 10 yds at the line of scrimmage and still get burned so frequently.

    If they were being had while playing bump-and-run man-to-man, that's one thing, but they're playing off the line in a supposed Cover-2. Not only are they getting toasted, but then they're not receiving deep support from the safeties.

    Fitting that the winning Hail Mary falls off of Sweed's hands.

    The only hell I saw unleashed was that of William Gay. THREE TIMES the guy falls down and allows a 1st down completion!

    I feel physically sick over this one.

    I have never seen a secondary this bad play for the steelers, sure we haven't had great secondaries in the past, but to let this raider team with a no name Qb, WR who suck, shred their coverage like that is just crazy. Nothing can be done now bout look for at least 2 DBs in the draft, I say a 1st rounder and a 3 rounder is necessary. Also Nate, don't blame Sweed for the hail mary failure, smh - thats basically a hope and a prayer anyways should have never been in that position, if you wanna look at a drop, look at Joe Burnett who dropped the game winning interception.

    Very disappointing. Once again, let shitty teams hang around and they'll beat you. How do we dominate(for the most part) the Broncos and Chargers, yet we can't close out the Chiefs and Raiders? It has been a really long time since I've been nervous about a game in Cleveland.

    I'm normally not one to give up on a season for the steelers. But the fat lady just sung yesterday.

    what I don't get is how the offense scored 2 TDs in just 4 plays put would fizzle out other times.

    The defense just blows in the 4th quarter.

    2009 season = 2006 season.

    Still amazed...

    This is the biggest waste of talent Steelers team I've ever watched. We aren't as bad as we look on Sundays, I still believe that. But, it only matters on gameday. We don't deserve a post-season.

    Let's hope for 10-6 and go out on a good note.

    I could go on and on about our secondary, clearly the weakest part of our team by far, but it's pointless. Their performance has spoken for itself, now we're left to scratch our heads and look toward the future. This feels like an exact carbon copy of 2006, except that we're losing leads to worse teams this year which makes it tougher to take.
