The Steelers were just flat. The D played well (hey, Dewayne Washington gave up points! Who'd a thought!), and Brent Alexander, who gave up the first TD got back into the game with an interception (and almost a second one that woulda won the game).
Maddox didn't throw an INT!! He learned to take the sack! Now, next lesson is, if you are outside the tackles, THROW IT AWAY!
Now the Steelers are in the bye at 2-4. They have several tough games ahead of them. Next step? Put... the bus... IN! Zeroue was an experiment gone wrong. He used to be a good scat-back, but put on too much weight and can't break a tackle. Bettis should be your runner, and Verron Hayes should be your third-down back. Zeroue should be waived next year.
Next order of business is to scout out good veteran Offensive Linesmen, cause what we have blows goats!
I think Chukki Okobi should start at C. Jeff Hartings has a bad knee and can't handle the job. Maybe make him a guard along with faneca. As far as the tackles go, put in Marvel Smith, and change Bruener over to T and put him in. Ross, and whoever else they keep throwing in there (fordam, nwenkie, etc) just aren't good. Period.
At least they have a week to figure out this OL problem....
And I told-ya the Panthers would win. Underrated defense, underrated running game... these guys are for real... super-bowl caliber team!
