Ed Bouchette's post on Pittsburgh Steelers | Latest updates on Sulia
How bad did #Steelers offense stink Sunday vs. #Titans. One of their more feeble performances in Heinz. Here's how
The Titans earned their status as 7-point underdogs by allowing more points than any team in the NFL last season. The Steelers struggled to score 7. Had they not done so with 1:23 left in the game, it would have been the first time they had scored fewer than 3 points in a game under Mike Tomlin. They were last shut out by Jacksonville 9-0 in 2006, Bill Cowher’s final season.
“That was the problem, we did it late and we couldn’t doit early enough,’’ Roethlisberger said. “It was just little things here and little things there.’’
Those little things, though, do not include the loss of Pouncey. That’s a big thing. Not only do they lose a three-time Pro Bowl center, they must use either their most versatile lineman to replace him, Kelvin Beachum, or go with the guy they picked up last week after Tampa Bay cut him, Cody Wallace, who did not dress today.
It looks like it goes downhill from here. Yikes.
