Steelers Embarrassed in Prime Time by the Rival Ravens, Fall to 1-2-1 Following 26-14 Loss

While you can’t judge a season by four games, if you were to grade the Pittsburgh Steelers after four games of the 2018 season, you would be hard pressed to give them anything over a ‘D.’

Grades aside, the team was simply a mess on Sunday night, a place where they usually dominate, and in front of their home crowd playing their biggest rival, they were defeated – soundly – 26-14.

The loss drops the team to 1-2-1, and if you would have asked any fan what the teams mark would be after the first month of the season, I don’t think many would have told you that – A: they would be under .500, and B: they would be 0-2 at home.

There’s all kinds of blame to go around, so while this won’t be pretty at all, here’s a couple takeaways from the third straight home loss dating back to the playoff nightmare against the Jaguars last season.

  1. There comes a time when the old school way of conducting your buisness has to change . Long time buisnes do it all the time in this country . The Pittsburgh Steelers are going too have to do it to if they want to contend for a title . The entire organization knew at the end of last season that the defense had to be fixed . They had an entire offseason to make that happen . Theyre answer ? They bring in an avarage safety and a journeyman linebacker who has bounced from team to team during his NFL career . They call that fixing the defense .Bottom line , very little was spent and now it shows , bigtime . You get what you pay for and the Steelers are finding that out . Better free agents could have been had but they chose the easy less expensive route .Its not 1975 anymore and what worked back then wont work today . Its time to open the checkbook and go get some players . Otherwise look forward to alot of losing seasons going forward .
