Steelers LB Arthur Moats Tweets Out Apology to Johnny Manziel Over Facemask Penalty

    As I stated in my last post Ben is the heart , the soul and the motor that drives this offense . He proved it again today . Without him the Steelers lose this game . The reason being , the Steelers defense in a word , is pathetic . Last week against Oakland , Derek Carr looked like Ken Stabler , God rest his soul . This week , Johnny Manziel looked like Brian Sipe . The Steelers secondary is simply awful and the organization has no one to blame but themselves for not upgrading it when they had the chance . The Steelers offense has to put up thirty points a game , otherwise they have no chance to win . Its as simple as that . For this team to have had the major injuries theyve had at the mid point of the season and still be 6 – 4 is a miracle . Think what it would be if we had an NFL caliber secondary . Oh , what could have been .

      Our defence works hard. Alot of injuries there, but the work hard. If you think they SUCK, then you get your ass out there and play.

        First off Sandi , Im a lifelong Steeler fan going all the way back to the late seventies . Ive seen the really good teams and the really bad teams , so I think Im probably as knowledgeable as anyone else when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers . With that being said , I simply made the observation that this teams secondary is bad , which it is . Its not the players fault , nor is it the coaches fault . They are playing the hand that was dealt to them by the front office . When they have had chances to upgrade the secondary , they havent done it . Its not about injuries or effort , its about a lack of talent . In regards to your last comment about me getting my “ass” out there and playing , my “ASS” is almost fifty , so I dont think that would work . You have a nice day .

    The secondary is feast or famine. Sure they hit but the yards given up are stunning. We won’t face many teams as obliging as the Browns.

    I read all the time at L4SN about how much the expectations have rose for this defense. There’s no reason the Steelers can’t make a deep playoff run this year.
