Losing sucks especially the first one. We really had no chance of winning this game though. It's not because the Steelers are better. It's because we're decimated at running back (we lost this game when Stewart went out), and the running ability that makes our qb great has been taken away, obviously we know about Hardy.
The Oline took a major step back and got physically beaten. To the Oline's defense they were put in a bad situation. Pittsburgh knew we were going to be one dimensional this game without any healthy running backs and no threat of the read option. Despite this it was special teams that cost us this game and any positive momentum. Jumping offside in the redzone of 4th down. The Philly Brown bs.
Defensively we did a poor job stopping the run and their was never adjustments made to counter Pittsburgh's short quick passing game. I expect this to be a humbling experience for them. Hopefully they'll refocus.
Either way we really need to get healthy somehow. I think we'd be better off playing DA until Cam is fully healed. We're a different offense when Cam can take off. I don't expect this performance to be the norm. I'd expect a different team to come out next week.
P.S Costas is a gay.
