Three days later and reliving the Titans game remains as painful as if it just happened. But we did it anyway, trying to find some positive from some pretty repugnant football.
We start this episode by wondering why the hell Tomlin didn’t use a timeout prior to Ike Redman’s fumble into the end zone since the Steelers had the wrong personnel on the field.
The discussion then turns to the obvious trouble along the offensive line, why this group of wideouts can’t get open, how none of the tight ends not named Kelvin Beachem can’t block, and whether Le’Veon Bell has a chance to fix a running game that’s somehow worse than last year.
We also talk Arians vs. Haley and — seriously, I can’t believe I’m about to type this — if Tomlin should be on the hot seat if this team goes 4-12.
Amid the rubble, there were some positives: playing time for Shamarko and Golden, Troy and LaMarr looking healthy and spry, Jarvis Jones and my Week 1 Steelers MVP: Zoltan Mesko.
Other than that, there’s not much to be psyched about. And in fact, for the first time in SL history, all three of us are picking the Steelers to lose, this time to the Bengals on Monday night.
Alrighty, talking starts promptly…
