Steelers and Roethlisberger Stink Up Heinz Field in Lackluster 30-9 Loss to Jaguars to Drop to 3-2

A week after winning a huge road game in Baltimore, the Steelers laid a complete egg at home on Sunday, losing badly to a Jacksonville Jaguars team that lost to the New York Jets last week in overtime.

The outcome was a 30-9 loss, one that puts the Steelers at 3-2 after five games.

You can place the blame for this lackluster effort at the feet of an offense that settled for three field goals in the red zone, and a defense that after trailing 20-9 allowed the Jaguars to march right down the field and put the game away.

Steeler Nation should be ticked after this effort, as the last two weeks all that’s been talked about is distractions regarding the National Anthem and last week with Antonio Brown throwing a tantrum during the win in Baltimore.

It looked like it might have caught up with them, and because of it the team is now 3-2 as compared to possibly being 4-1 or even 5-0.

Here’s a couple takeaways from this disgusting effort that was painful to watch.

  1. Team is a train wreck

  2. Marks above comment is dead on . The Steelers are a train wreck at the present time from the top to the bottom . Our quarterback is playing as bad as he ever has . Our all pro running back looks like a guy who missed the entire off season and all of training camp . Hes not even close to being the same back hes been the last couple years . We have a defense that cant stop the run if they’re lives depended on it . We get the secondary back to respectability and now the front seven has suddenly forgot how to play football . It makes no sense whatsoever . The Jags whole offense is centered around Leonard Fournette and the Steelers knew that coming in . He rushed for nearly 200 yards against them . Inexcusable , period . Lastly , this is falling directly at Mike Tomlins feet . This team was built to contend for a Super Bowl this year and they look more like an expansion team that cant get out of their own way . Bottom line , theres way to much talent on both sides of the ball to be getting these kinds of results . Tomlin and his staff better get this fixed fast or 2017 is going to be over and he and his staff are going to have a whole lot of questions to answer to . It wont be pretty .

  3. Ben needs to retire.The game has passed this old man by.

  4. Dave B, exactly right! Coaching is a disaster, players aren’t engaged at all. Tomlin may have lost this team

  5. I can’t believe anyone in here would have the complete and utter AUDACITY to rip our Steelers and especially that awesome coach mike Tomlin! You guys should be ashamed
    Ripping a team and a coach of such epic prowess and magnitude. What Worthlessberger er, I mean future hall of fame quarterback ROETHLISBERGER, an ownership family that NEVER does anything political like make up an unnecessary, racially equitable rule and then actually hire a guy to appease not only the rule but the community so as to say, “Hey, look at us, we just hired a black guy and it’s our own rule! We are awesome!”’ The Rooney’s would never do anything like that! I’m just outraged at th fan reaction saying things like train wreck! Come come now! Don’t you know that Tomlin breeds mediocrity and actually signs off on those ridiculous Haley offensive game plans where we abandon the run only down four and then subsequently rely on our vastly overrated quarterback and greatest joke on turf offense to save the day! I said it two weeks ago haven’t been on here since because I’ve been without internet. Worthlessberger is washed up, I don’t care what he’s done for us in the past nor do I give a shit that we’d be worse off with someone else…I want him out and Tomlin too!

  6. Huh?!? I thought by now most of you whiny Ben roethlisberger supporters would be all ver my shit! Maybe y’inz finally agree with me about the washer up hack!

  7. I just went on Steelers nation radio to hear tunch the apologist ilkin, Craig make excuses wolfley and Charlie the Steelers can never do anything wrong Batch….Juuuuuust to see if they were still jamming their noses up the Steelers brass asses. All I got was patsy cline’s “I’m Sorry!” Coin it here, Steelers gab Loede….the Steelers offense is the greatest joke on turf!
