This loss will hurt for some time


This loss to the Broncos is one thats going to hurt for a while . The Steelers suffered a rediculous number of injuries leading up to the game with Roethlisberger , Pouncey and Mendenhall . Not to mention the fact they lost Brett Kiesel and Casey Hampton before halftime and neither returned . This team was no where near full strength against the Broncos and before anyone says , youre making excuses , I say no , Im simply stating the facts . The Broncos won and for that you have to give them credit . However , at the end of the day , one has to wonder if this Steeler team had not lost all these key players to injury , could the outcome have been different ? For that we have a whole off season to sit back and ponder that thought . On another note , Ike Taylor probably played the worst game of his career against the Broncos . At times he looked totally confused to the point he didnt know where he was on the field . Thats unacceptable for a veteran corner whos played in as many games as he has . This is more proof that this Steeler team needs to upgrade its secondary before next season . Ike isnt getting any younger and after him , you have barely average at best . At the end of the day , there needs to be some blame laid at the feet of Dick LeBeau . Dick should have a had a better game plan going into this game to slow down Tebow and while I dont blame him completely for the defenses collapse , he has to share in the blame . Now we can all sit back and wonder , what if ?
