The Pittsburgh Steelers have too much talent to be stuck at 2-2, questioning the direction of their season. The defending AFC champions have faced a difficult four-game stretch to open the season, but that does not excuse the way in which they have lost.
Simply put, the Steelers are not playing Steelers football. They cannot run the football on offense or stop the run on defense.
Who is most to blame?
The Steelers are far from done. The season has had several positives, and the roster is largely unchanged from a year ago. Players like Mike Wallace and Troy Polamalu have continued to play well.
Wallace and Polamalu are not the only Steelers playing well, but they are in the minority as this team struggles to find its identity.
