Steelers 21 Raiders 24
Unless you were keyed into Warren Zevon in the late ’70s, you might not get the title of this episode (but it’s a great song!). Suffice it to say that we are quickly losing confidence in HC Mike Tomlin. Here’s what we talk about in this episode:
Yet Another Loss in Oakland – Tomlin taking some serious heat for leaving Dobbs in while Ben was good to go. Chris Boswell 0/2 + hits upright on XP.
Is Tomlin on the “Hotseat”? – He won’t get fired this year, but since the JAX playoff game, his standing has gotten worse and worse
Defensive game plans – Is this a matter of talent deficiency or is Keith Butler unable to coach them up? Certainly we need to address the secondary’s allergy to catching the football.
Offensive Summary – Only 1 punt with Ben in the game. Zero run game without Conner. Samuels is 3rd down back at most
Immediate Future – We have a chance against Patriots; Steelers have OUTPLAYED teams in all 3 losses; Playoffs still alive (but who cares?); Pats / Texans / Ravens all lost.
Beyond 2018 – Monetarily, team is built to WIN NOW; Can we even improve? Fichtner improved the offense, hopefully someone can do same for the defense.
We Told You So – this may sound obnoxious, but we said it from the beginning of the season:
- Defense in NO WAY improved over offseason
- Dobbs < Landry, will cost you game
- Boz will lose you games down stretch
And how about this take from usually soft-spoken ROCKY BLEIER (MAN and HERO)?!
