Whats is wrong in Pittsburgh?

They offense finally shows up and scores 29. The problem is the defense which was supposed to be one of the best coming into the season STINKS! They are allowing big plays in the running game and big plays from the passing game.

When Kendrell comes back will they be any better? I hope so.

Maddox looked good for starting his first game in 10 years. His 3 TD's matched Kordell's total for 3 games.

The Pirates suck?

Sorry, I seem to be having a problem thinking every vague thread title has to do with baseball today. I had the same thought with the thread "Moving game time back tonight?". That's why I'm throwing little clarifiers like "(MNF)" and "(NFL)" into thread titles.

It's October, I'm all about baseball right now.

Most of the D's that were supposed to be really tough have been soft so far. Pitt, Chicago, the Eagles... Tampa has been one of the few that has played to where they are supposed to be.

Here's my opinion - COACHING. Pittsburgh has had a revolving door of coaches, because they end up getting hired away for head coching jobs. Every year, they have to replace one or more coaches. after years and years of this, it's finally catching up...

That being said, the current coaching staff has been figured out. plain and simple. The word is out on the Steelers D, their morale is down, and they were reading too many Street & Smith's and SI predictions.

On a side note, Jason Gildon and Joey Porter are having banner years, while the CB's are thoroughly crispy on any given play.

They must be really having problems with the map because they seemed to have missed that Road to the Super Bowl.

I have to give another vote to coaching. I've been saying this for years...just like last week when we won...why did they hand the ball off with only seconds left? They weren't trying to gain any yards, they just ran into the middle. They should've knelt on the ball. they were on their own 5 yard line for Christ's sake.
