2. Get to Glennon

Remember Mike Glennon, the guy who as the starter for the Buccaneers beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh three seasons ago? Well he’s back and ready to try and land another upset against the black and gold.

Glennon was awful against Tampa Bay last week, as he is coming off a game where he finished with a quarterbacking rating of 23.2, and never got the Bears going.

Chicago is not a team that has a ton of weapons on offense, but the Steelers have to focus on the players that do make plays, and make sure they make Glennon feel the pressure from not only the outisde, but up the middle as well.

The Steelers defense has allowed only 237 yards in each of the first two games, a good indication of how good the team has played the last two weeks.

    Way to go, Tomlin. you just very rightfully earned the very dubious distinction of being the only coach to lose TWICE to Mike Glennon! But it doesn’t surprise me coming from a coach whose existing knowledge of X’s and O’s is Tic-Tac-Toe! Oh, apologists, please come out and let me hear all the Tuitt wasn’t there, Watt wasn’t there, it was too hot, our vaginas hunted, etc. etc. Perhaps the Steelers could reach into their collective purses and pull out some terrible tissues for those terrible tears! Realize they have an overrated QB leading an overrated offense with a pure suck head coach! Easy to hate this team! Hard to root for and breaks my heart having been a fan for so long. No business losing to THAT team, but it’s what Tomlin teams do! No one knows how to tackle or wrap up, they jump started the season for a back who was SUCKING so far this year and, a game plan which should’ve been solely to stop the run knowing Glennon wasn’t gonna beat you…and they couldn’t even do that! Please don’t franchise Bell again next year…let him go rap somewhere…I can’t wait for BB to retire so they have an actual excuse to lose these types of games. could’ve taken a nice 3-0 season record into baltimore next week but by october, this team will be 2-2 and everyone will be saying just wait until we get hot in December…It’s THESE games that prevent us from getting a seventh because we have to play on the road in january as opposed to home. Everyone loves Tomlin…I just can’t wrap my head around it. They have looked like shit so far this year and were lucky to be 2-0. Now, let’s see this unfold! I can’t wait to hear ALL the excuses! Yinzers unite, fall back on your laurels and stay entrenched at 6 for a long, long time!!!!!

    Oh and by the way, I do agree that holding should’ve been called on both of the final two running plays against the bears, I do agree that league-wide officiating is at best an abomination…doesn’t subtract from the fact that if this team is sooo good, they should never have been in that situation because CHICAGO SUCKS!
