Yes, now the Steelers officially do suck!!!

How the heck do we lose to a 2-7 Kansas City Cheifs team that is a doormat in the NFL. So rather than dissect the game, here is my short analysis:

Our problem is that we allow teams (even bad teams) to hang around and then one play defines the game.

We outgain, outstat, out possession, but we cannot

CLOSE OUT

the competition.

Once again our Special Teams were beyond words. I can hardly watch the KO returns for fear of the big play and we did it again only this time it was the 1st play of the game!

We also cannot stop close out 4th quarter drives. By the way: William Gay is not a replacement player of equal value to Bryant McFadden. We saw that today in a big way.

So officially, although I hate to say it we suck!!!!

Where can I comment?
