Why do the steelers sucks so bad??  

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 

Why?

post #2 of 54

Ummm....ok.  I hate the Steelers but they most definetly dont suck.

post #3 of 54

because they have overrated players like troy p. who can't cover, can't make open field tackles, have horrific technique, constantly blow coverage, take way too many risks, try and arm tackle, play dirty, get run over at the goal line, but get credit and over-hype for making an occasional tackle for loss by recklessly shooting a gap, and diving head first while not being blocked.  oh yeah, he has cool hair too.

 

the single most overrated pro athlete in existence; past or present.

they have not had a losing record in the last 7 years and in that same span have been to 3 super bowls and won 2 of them.

 

i wish my team sucked that bad.

just at the safety position Roy Williams of the Cowboys/Bengals and Antrel Rolle of the Giants come immediately to mind. especially williams who made the pro bowl about 5 times too many.

 

and by the by, polomalu was rated as the top difference maker of the the steelers last year, so he obviously is contributing. i mean any guy has flaws, even guys like revis will take it on the chin from time to time, but great teams make guys around them look better and no doubt polomalu has benefited from the defense pitt consistently has.

Maybe you just started watching football during the year that he got injured (was it 3 years ago or something), but Troy is not at all overrated.

 

The simple fact that he can play the box and deep well, his ball-hawking skills, make him a huge threat for offences. 

 

After Ed Reed (the undisputed top safety in the league), who would you rate as the best safety?

If I remember correctly. The Broncos beat the Steelers in overtime playoff game. Ya baby.

 

Oh and we got Payton Manning now!

 

First game of the year, Steelers at Broncos. There's gonna be a lot sad Steelers fans there.

 

Ya Steelers suck....

Yeah, I mean I hate the Steelers and even I would never say that he is overrated.

roy williams, good call.  dude was so obese, he couldn't even fit in his uniform in dallas.

 

polamalu benefits greatly from the insane complexity dick lebeau's schemes present to offenses week in and week out.  a lot of the times, he is completely unaccounted for.  when he is accounted for, i've yet to see him shed a block.  he gives up on plays (see demaryius thomas via tim teebow), over pursues others, takes bad pursuit angles at best, and has no clue how to wrap up and form tackle.  he gets absolutely torched by elite qb's, and it a total liability in pass coverage.  don't get me wrong, the guy is good, he's just not great.  there's no doubt that the times he gambles, and makes a play, he makes his team better.  however, imho, any top 32 SS could be plugged into that system, and that D wouldn't skip a beat.

i'm a ND fan, and have been well aware of polamalu for years.  imho, he is overrated, and i've been clear in the above posts as to why i think so.  

 

ed reed is a FS, polamalu plays SS.  at SS i'd take donte whitner first overall if i was a GM building a defense.  that guy just flat out bangs.

Sometimes he takes a bad angle. He never really tackles well. The rest I can't say I agree with.

And if you think Lebeau's schemes are "complex" then I think you've not watched the Steelers much for the past five years. a1_smile.gif

you can't count the divine intervention against denver.

I just fell out of my chair! LOL

 

You gotta admit, that was something special teebow did that day.

 

btw, that play was officially called "The Mile-High-Goodbye" by ESPN.

Agreed. He's a bit of a gambler, but he's the best gambler.

I was sort of hearing your argument until this statement and I do think Whitner is good but there are better SS. Polamalu is a solid player no matter how you look at it but like Jamo said he's a gambler sometimes he misses big and when he's right it's generally a huge play in the game. Either way the steelers are a better team when he is on the field and there is no denying it.
