I've seen a lot of people pissed off at Cleveland for not beating Baltimore on Sunday. Social Media blew up with rants and raves destroying the Browns for not getting the job done. But for the 2018 season, I'll be mindful of what could've been:

Week 1: Boswell, usually money, missed two FGs, and we tie
Week 2: Our defense spots the Chiefs 21 points and we lose by 8
Week 4: Spot the ravens 14 points, tie it before halftime, score 0 points 2nd half, ravens kick FGs to win
Week 12: Allow Broncos to drive down the field and score in the waining seconds for the loss
Week 13: More of the same, as defense squanders a 16 point half time lead, and the offense goes in to coasting mode instead of foot on the throttle
Week 14: Make the dismel Raiders look like a playoff team, lose in the final seconds
Week 16: Attempt a fake punt after the defense shut down the Saints offense on 3 straight drives, give them a short field, they score, we don't - we lose AGAIN

Pick any one of those games, win one, and we're in the playoffs, win a few others and we're looking at a first round bye.

This team under performed to the nth degree. It is a terrible feeling to know this team had all the potential in the world to make a run to the Super Bowl. And instead we're talking about Pens hockey, and who the hell will beat the Patriots***** and the ratbirds.

Looking forward to the 2019 season, I'm not sure it's going to get any easier unless the coaching staff and the players pull their heads out of their arses.

Browns and Ravens will be much improved offensively
We play the Chargers and the Patriots***** as well
Throw in a mix with the Rams & Seahawks and we're already looking at an uphill battle the way this team currently sits.

Why do Keith Butler and Danny Smith still have jobs?? I assumed Black Monday would sort them out. Obviously we are stuck with Tomlin for at least another year, but those two idiots need to go.

I agree. Our STs and Defense both have been really inconsistent for at least 2 years. Smith would tell Boswell to kick short knowing our guys can't cover. That's just one thing off of the top of my head.

Tomlin presser was today. In short, nothing if significance. AB drama ate up most of the presser. Here is what was said:

  • AB tweaked his knee last week.
  • Was given time off for rest.
  • Tomlin wanted AB to check in Friday night. He didn't. Tomlin tried to call AB Saturday, and couldn't get a hold of him.
  • Tomlin goes ahead and makes gameplan without him.
  • AB's agent calls Tomlin Sunday morning to inform him AB was game ready. Tomlin said the gameplan was finalized and AB was scratched.
  • Tomlin and AB met before the game and Tomlin told AB how he could help, being that AB was scratched. This was the last contact they had.
  • Tomlin also doesn't listen or follow player's social medias.
  • Regarding personnel, no decisions will be made anytime soon.


This was posted by AB during Tomlin's presser.

It would almost have been better if we LOST to the Bengals. Higher draft pick and heads would most certainly roll...

Start with a new DC, I wouldn’t trade AB unless we get fair value

Had AB been a mid season occurrence I think they would have been more forced into doing something. As it is they have all offseason to reconcile. There aren't as many meetings with the press. The whole thing can die down. They can come up with a deeper, 'faulty x-ray machine', story to help better explain things. AB trade will be the hot topic all winter long for fans. In the end I think a trade is going to be tough to happen. AB starts next year at 31, he costs a lot, he brings baggage. Personally I'd like all clowns in the circus going to another tent, but I think in the end AB is in Steelers training camp this summer.

Tomlin needs to go, Butler needs to go, and AB needs to go.

Draft a WR to replace him, or snag someone in free agency. Bring in a head coach that doesn't put up with BS, and doesn't let his players say and do whatever they want in the media. Bring in a DC that isn't a deer-in-the-headlights doofus that doesn't know what he's doing half the time. Bring back the discipline and grit the Steelers are known for, and shut down the soap opera bullshit. Enough is enough for me.

The Emperor has to be rolling in his grave seeing this drama filled shit-shitshow. Coach Noll never, ever would've put up with this me first garbage.

Agreed. Everyone not named Fichtner or Munchak can grab their coats and hats.

Agree with this last line 100%. I don't know if Noll's time had more leverage w/o free agency, but there are plenty of NFL teams today with big stars that don't have this circus. I think AB is more the symptom of how things are being run.

I'd like to see them get a starting caliber CB in free agency. Drafting isn't working. Also maybe a DeAngelo Williams back up RB....a veteran guy who had been a decent starter that can be plugged in when needed

Draft LBs again, maybe 2-3 to try to hit on someone that works.

If they aren't going to replace Tomlin, which I doubt they will, would like to see them go to a true defensive coordinator and take that out of Tomlin's hands
