Steelers lost another one, this time to the Pats
I am not even sure where to start. The last two games have been awful. The defense looks lost. First they looked like they had never seen an option offense against the Raiders, Then this week they KNOW the Patriots will primarily throw the ball. Even worse, they know they will primarily throw it to Gronkowski and he's open as the day is long.
Please. And don't come at me with the "old and slow" garbage, because I don't think that's necessarily the problem.
Preparation on the other hand, does seem problematic. Do they not study film? My kid has film access on his freaking phone and he's a high school football player. You mean the National Football League doesn't have all the new technological bells and whistles to study film and prepare? Then do they not go over film and figure out a game plan to attack what they see on film? And lastly, do they not practice said game plan prior to the game?
It's TOM MOTHERFUCKING BRADY, HE THROWS THE GODDAMN BALL. AND HE THROWS IT TO GRONK. COVER HIM!
OH AND BRADY DOESN'T DO WELL UNDER PRESSURE, GET TO HIM.
How do I know this?
Because we have played the damn Patriots a hundred bazillion times, it's the same thing every single time. Every. Single. Time.
Tom throws. They catch. They get calls. They cry like babies when they are hit. They win.
There's a problem here. It's not even fucking entertaining because no one even looks remotely like they know how to play some goddamn football. Except maybe Ben. Except when he forgets that he can throw the damn ball out of freaking bounds instead of taking a sack.
I'm frustrated. Aren't you all frustrated?
Maybe I am spoiled. maybe. How about can I just be entertained? and entertained well? Football is a tens of billions dollar industry. Friggin. entertain me.
The head coach is ultimately responsible for righting the ship. I like Tomlin. For now. I want him to succeed. I want to win. Again.
Changes need to be made. I don't know the solution, wish I did, but I really don't know what happens in the locker room. All I know is this just isn't fun.
I want to have fun.
