No Repeat For Pittsburgh Steelers

January 06, 2010 By: Katchop Category: NFL

The Pittsburgh Steelers are not in the playoffs, and some people are wondering what happened.

It was all fun and games this year for Santonio Holmes, right up until the Steelers missed the playoffs (katchop)

Without Aaron Smith and Troy Polamalu, the 2009 Steelers defense became the 2007 Steelers defense. It allowed 171 rushing yards to Cleveland, yet that was only the third-highest total the Browns put up in their final four games, because while no one was watching the Browns have become a physical football team.

Even Eric Mangini is bright enough to understand that a team must be physical to win in the AFC North Division. It took Marvin Lewis long enough to figure it out in Cincinnati. He now has two physical lines, a thumper of a rookie middle linebacker, a plowhorse at tailback, and, get this, a fullback on his roster to go along with legitimate receivers and cornerbacks. The Ravens have all of that, except the legitimate receivers and cornerbacks and that’s why they finished second to the Bengals this season.

The Steelers? They have the best quarterback in the division and that’s why they haven’t fallen behind the Browns … yet.
