wtf is up with the steelers special teams?

No, I'm NOT going to complain about the poor officiating AGAIN..... NOT going to bemoan the "fabricated" personal foul penalty on Gary Clark, who CLEARLY hit Holmes in the chest WITHOUT TOUCHING his helmet!!! NO, I'm NOT going to complain about the 2 TDs that Ben was robbed of, when Cromartie first held Wallace and then Sanders as they blew by him for a sure score.... It's almost comical that the TV commentators first said "I don't understand why Sanders slowed down at the end of his route?" Then the instant replay clearly showed why; Cromartie with a handfull of jersey as he vainly chased behind Sanders.....

The J-E-T-S were NOT TOTALLY handed this game by the refs....they showed up to play and gave the Steelers a dose of their own brand of football, their RBs were finishing runs all day. Sanchez played possibly his BEST game of the year. Their OC was taking chances and called a great game against a Steeler D that hardly blitzed at all.....Troy Polamalu was sorely missed.
The Jets return game consistently gave them great starting field position ( and an opening KO return for a TD ), something the Steelers definitely did NOT get....

Bruce Arians mailed in another "less than stellar" gameplan today. Every big play the Steelers made was due to great individual efforts by Roethlisberger, Mendenhall or one of the receiving corp...... And WHO'S IDEA was it to RUN Mewelde Moore out of the end zone???? Anybody with a memory remembers what happened THE LAST TIME they did that....(clue: -2pts...)

Finally, another Steeler who was sorely missed was Heath Miller, who IMHO, makes that back of the end zone grab for the game winner.....NO, I'm NOT going to blame the refs for this Steeler loss....there's plenty of blame to go around......

Troy is key on your D. Every game that he does not play, things just don't work out. Ben stilled played at a gutsy level! I just hope the Ravens can square off with the steelers again...we are not finished with them.

Always the BEST 2 games of the season.......This year, the record SHOULD have been 1-1. Steelers should have won at Heinz and Ravens should have won at M&T. But that's what makes this such a GREAT rivalry, you never know what's going to happen in these games.

I just hope you guys dispatch Tom Terrific and the rest of the Patsies before we see you again....for some reason, that NE team is like kryptonite for us...LOL!

Cromartie cannot cover route runners. I'm sorry that it turned out the way it did. The Jets defense won that game.

I'd have to say that Mendenhall played with alot of heart today also.....so did Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and Hines Ward. But Ben realy laid it out there today...did you see that 18yd run from around the 5yd line....bum foot and all!!! It's just too bad that the refs couldn't ( or wouldn't ) see all the jersey grabbing and holding going on by the Jets DBs.......
