07:10 AM ET 09.23 | Statistically speaking, the Steelers are already in deep trouble for a playoff run, and they're showing few signs of being able to pull out of it. What additional analysis could anyone possibly covet from this 40-23 fiasco of a failure against the Bears, one which began with a Ben Roethlisberger fumble, was buried by a second Ben Roethlisberger fumble, was ended by Ben Roethlisberger's second interception to make for matching bookends, and again had a whole lot of Heinz Field yellow showing all throughout? ... The Roethlisberger issue isn't new. He's been overthrowing receivers since the opener, he's taken too many sacks -- two more Sunday -- and he generally hasn't been himself. That, more than anything, has to change. "I can't turn the ball over, plain and simple," Roethlisberger said. "I can't, but I did."

Never seen Ben take a solid shot until last night. He got hammered several times.

The Jets-Bills game ran late, so NBC picked it up in progress after SF-Indy. EJ Manual was throwing wounded ducks the whole time. In contrast, Big Ben was throwing beautiful spirals.

But, neither of them could hit their receivers.

When Ben actually hit his receivers, they dropped the ball.

Johnny Football....hmmmmm. That'll be fun until one of these super fast NFL linebackers just lights his **** up. It won't take but a couple of those and they'll be singing Goodnight Irene.

Now he knows how all those girls in those bathrooms felt.

Did anybody see the sign some fans were holding up that said: "Fire Todd Haley Now"?

No, but I saw one guy with a bag over his head. Kinda early for that..or maybe not.

That was Ben's wife.

Pittsburgh is in big trouble.. Defense can't stop anyone and the offense is sputtering at best. Not just Haleys fault.
