How sad it must be to be a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. To watch quarterback Ben Roethlisberger throw for 400 yards and 4 touchdowns only to see the aging defense give the game away, shows that the Pittsburgh Steelers are a franchise in serious decline.
The Steelers defense gave up 28 points to the New England Patriots in the 4th quarter o he game. It shows that the aging Steelers defense are no longer able to compete for 60 minutes.
The Steelers organization is just as much at fault as the teams defensive secondary. They should have seen this coming. They were too busy penny-pinching instead of going out and spending the money necessary to build a defense that could compete in the NFL.
The Steelers that were once a force in the AFC North are all but gone. Roethlisberger isn’t getting any younger and he is taking a beating in each game he plays in.
The Steelers are in trouble and it is going to take a few years and a few drafts to get them back to where they once were. It is not going to be fun to be a Steelers fan for the next several seasons.
Roethlisberger hit the nail on the head after the team played in London, and he made the statement about how bad this Steelers team really is. At 2-6 it is hard for the Steelers organization to ignore the mistakes they made over the past several seasons now.
