Five Burning Questions: Humble Pie Edition


1)  After an elite NFL team gets thoroughly embarrassed by the Cleveland Browns (not that the Browns are shoddy by any means), does it concern you that team might raise its level of anger and renewed commitment and vow prime time revenge against the Steelers the very next week...oh wait, I did this one already...never mind...

1)  Will the death knell of the Steelers this year be the total ineptitude of stopping the short spread passing game and equal ineptitude of offensively operating the short passing game...oh wait, that one is old too...sorry...

1)  Which game of Mike Tomlin's career was his worst beatdown:  This past embarrassment on prime time television or the 2008 Philly game when the Steelers were eaten alive?

2)  I really did want to ask this question before the Brady Beatdown occurred, so you would not be overly clouded by Sunday's game, but oh well:  Who would you rather have on your team, Payton Manning or Tom Brady, considering equal coaching staffs, and why?

3)  Would it make sense for the Steelers to scour World Cup soccer teams to find a guy who can consistently kick a football 75 yards into the end zone?  Yes, it is a roster spot, but the Steelers use more spots for guys to tackle return men - not needed if there are few returns.  Is it worth a roster spot to start the opposition on the 20 yard line consistently?

4)  Those who attend games in person can answer first-hand and those who don't can speculate:  Would/could you ever boo the Pittsburgh Steelers?  It's one thing to vent on a web site like this or in a bar, but could you make a public vocal gesture that the players and America can hear?  Do you take the position that if you pay good money you would boo poor performance of guys who are professionals?  Or do you take the position that these our our guys and like your own children, you would never boo them publicly.

5)  Joe Paterno turned down the opportunity to talk about the Steelers job in 1969.  It is understood that the Steelers would have offered him the position had he been willing to talk.  If Joe-Pa had taken the job, how long would he have lasted?  Would he still be the Steelers coach today?  The organization loves stability and Joe-Pa is still coaching!
