Steelers are simply a bad football team




The 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers are simply a bad football team . Call it doom an gloom , call it what ever you want , but this team has major problems with no easy solutions . There is enough blame to go around for everyone , including the head coach . The offense cant run the football , period . The passing game , while better than the running game is inconsistent at best . The MAJOR problem is on defense . This defense in addition to being ravaged by injuries has simply gotten old and the young bucks that were brought in to replace the aging stars simply arent producing . They cant protect a lead anymore in the second half which is a sign age catching up to the veterans . Players such as Ziggy Hood , Cameron Heywood , Jason Worilds arent producing the way the team had hoped . With the exception of Worilds , the other two were number one draft picks . Thats a major concern . Last nights debacle in Tennessee was a back breaker for the Steelers . Mike Pouncey goes out with an MCL injury to his knee , then we lose right tackle Marcus Gilbert to an ankle injury . On top of that we lose Rashard Mendenhall to an achillies injury after getting him back the week before . One last note , Mike Tomlins decision to let Shaun Suisham attempt a 54 yard field goal in the fourth quarter was a mistake . If he missed , the Titans get the ball back at mid field which is exactly what happened . Your defense has proven they cant get off the field and then with the game on the line , you put your defenses back against the wall . Bottom line , alot of questions with no easy answers .
