Steelers lose to Ravens on Primetime!

In a game that was almost a mirror image of the Chiefs’ game, the Steelers were beaten soundly by the Baltimore Ravens, falling behind early, rallying back and then eventually falling. It has been a dismal season and Super Bowl expectations seem very far off right now.

Ben Roethlisberger had a great second quarter but an abysmal second half. He misfired on several passes in the second half, completing just 8 of 18 passes for 50 yards. It looked like he was poised to continue his 300 yard plus streak even having an opportunity to rack up garbage yards, but he completely folded in the fourth quarter. The offense abandoned the running game relying heavily on the pass.

There seems to be a huge disconnect between Antonio Brown and Roethlisberger. Brown only hauled in one catch in the second half. They continue to have histrionics on the sideline after nearly every play and there were several mistakes again in the protection schemes.

The defense is a horrid mess. The game plan was to rush four and stay in coverage. It never worked. Joe Flacco completely picked apart the coverages and the Ravens offense kept the Steelers off balance. It was an extremely well thought out game plan that the Defense couldn’t counter.

Jon Bostic and Terrell Edmunds look completely lost right now in the defense. T.J. Watt was non-existent the entire game.

Once again coaching has to come into question. The Steelers have fallen behind 49-0 in the first quarter of their last three home games. The defense has been on its heels and the offense becomes one dimensional. At what point do you make some changes or try different schemes?

The season is slipping away.


My “GAME BEER” goes to: NO ONE. Seriously the game was that bad.

Where I watched the game: At Buckley’s with my friends and KGB. It was a wings fest and the beer of choice was Miller Lite. It was a great night the game not withstanding.

My Stat of the week: 49 points in the first quarter of last three home games. There is very little room for success with that type of start.   

My Thoughts on next week: The Steelers are up against the wall and will be battling a tough Falcons offense.

This week’s Jersey: Franco Harris #32 Salute to Service.
