    Default Lolley Post game thoughts

    Post Kansas City thoughts

    How in the world do you lose a game in which you roll up more than 500 yards of offense?

    Yeah, I know, three turnovers and a special teams touchdown.

    But, seriously, that was pretty pathetic to lose to Kansas City's popgun offense.

    Put it this way, Lance Long had a big catch against the Steelers in the fourth quarter, picking up 30 yards down the middle of the field on third down from the 10.

    Lance Long for cripes sakes. Dude with a name like that should be making porn, not catching 30-yard passes.

    As things stand, the Steelers would be the No. 2 wildcard in the AFC playoffs. But I'm seeing nothing from this team that would suggest it could make it through a playoff run as a wildcard as the 2005 team did.

    Then again, a healthy Troy Polamalu would help.

    A number of national reporters have said Polamalu will miss a month.

    Don't believe it. Polamalu is closer than that and could play this week against Baltimore.

    I would expect to see Ben Roethlisberger as well.

    He seemed pretty lucid in the locker room after the game.

    Four kickoff returns in the past five games has left this team shellshocked. That's also eight consecutive games with a return of some type against this team, an NFL record.

    It's stat akin to the 'fat, dumb and stupid is no way to go through life' line from Animal House.

    Rashard Mendenhall ran hard Sunday and blocked well in blitz pickup.

    Willie Parker ran hard Sunday and even looked good catching a pass out of the backfield.

    Yet it was Mewelde Moore, the slowest of the three, carrying the ball on a critical sweep on third-and-two in overtime.

    Genius. I've defended Bruce Arians quite a bit this season, but I can't defend that.

    Moore also blew a couple of blitz pickups late in the game.

    I'm sorry, but Mendenhall should be on the field full-time from here on out. If he needs a breather, Parker has shown he's healthy enough to effectively spell him.

    Moore would be my last resort at this point.

    Ike Taylor, you've got to come up with that interception if you want to make the Pro Bowl.

    Taylor had an interception on the play before Matt Cassel threw a six-yard pass to Chris Chambers that turned into a 61-yard catch-and-run to set up Ryan Succop's game-winning field goal.

    But Taylor lost control of the ball as he rolled over.

    It would have been a nice interception. Instead, it's a footnote to a sorry day.

    Taylor was also one of the guys who missed Jamal Charles on the opening kickoff.

    Nobody will be blaming Jeff Reed for missing any tackles this week.

    Sorry Florio, but you get a big fat ****ing FAIL here.

    If ANY player is looking to do things to make the **** Pro Bowl instead of helping his team reach the post season, than that **** player has no business being on the Steelers.

    It was Dale Lolley

    But I agree with what you said to an extent. Playing well and playing to make the probowl are sort of one of the same thing. If you play to make the pro bowl, then I'm assuming you are out there trying to play as **** good as you can

    I agree with him...not sure if you took it out of context or what...but...Ike will never make the Pro Bowl...(not saying that he has his sights set on that over the team...I am sure wins are more important...but every player loves recognition...and everyone says Ike is our "shut down corner" which he may well be...but he will never get any recognition for being a shut down corner)...without any INT's.

    Does Lolley actually get paid to write that? Must be nice. Most of the posts on this forum are more interesting than that.

    It seems a fairly concise summation. Now all I have to do is avoid the national press noodle-noggins for a week and all could be back to normal.

    What an odd year.

    I could be wrong, but I suspect that this was just his quick blog from the road... I'll be interested to see if he mentions it in his remarks come around Tuesday.
