The 1-2 Steelers and the 4:15 pm curse.


I still am shock for our 1-2 start, i try to find some reasons that can go beyong the football performance from the players, the playcalling, and the stupid mental errors. My first thought was that the home and away games had something, but in the past 2 years the Steelers are 9-7 as visitors. 9-9 if you count the 2 away games from 2009. Maybe this is it, we are a bad away team. But i thisnk there is something else, i check the time at the games, and for example at 1:00 pm we are 9-2 WOW, at 8:15 pm we are 10-1 with the win to the Tintans. But at 4:15 pm we are 4-9. 7 of the 9 away looses are at 4:15 pm. Men this is awfull. Here is the games at 4:15 pm:

GAMES at 4:15 pm

2007                        

At Cardinals 21-14 L

At Jets 19-16 (OT) L

At Patriots 34-13 L

At Ravens 27-21 L 

0-4 for the year

2008

At Eagles 15-6 L

Vs Giants 21-14 L

Vs Colts 24-20 L

Vs Chargers 11-10 W

At Patriots 33-10 W

Vs Cowboys 20-13 W

At Ravens 13-9 W

4-3 for the year

2009

At Bears 17-14 L

At Bengals 23-20 L

0-2 at the time

The points scored in the W games are 77-42 with a 8.75 point diff per game. For the L games is 201-138 with a 7 point diff per game.

I know this has to be mental preparation, maybe how Tomlin make the pre-game meetings, perhaps they eat breakfast before the game, I don't know. Maybe someone in BTSC have a more acurate answer for this. The good news is we don't have any other 4:15 pm this year, but with the flexible schedulle we can have at least 2 more, the one Vs the Vikings and Vs the Ravens in week 16.

Perhaps we should ask for no games at 4:15 pm.
