The loss to Minnesota last Thursday was a microcosm of the Pittsburgh Steelers season thus far key injuries. T.J. Watt with the spotty defense and the absence of Watt and the lack of ability to stop the run
They weren’t great, but they woke up late, but it was a little too late. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and company really got things going, but just not enough to overcome how poor the defense played despite getting to Kirk Cousins interceptions.
The defense for the Steelers was gashed in their run Dalvin Cook at 200 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
You look at scoreboard at the end of the night. 36 just too many points to an under 500 team linebacker.
Devin Bush has struggled all year as he gets himself back to playing post ACL surgery. Not quite there yet. Obviously, he has been playing, but not the guy in the Steelers drafted pre injury and he didn’t mince words.
“Things are great and not great, I should say collectively. Obviously, nobody on the Steelers is playing up the potential. You know, Nancy goes reflect on on how the games you played at the games we lost in the games that we have, you know, when it’s ties, ties over time and nobody’s nobody’s been the best football right now
. And you know, I’m not going to sit here and single myself out or anybody else out, you know, because I didn’t. They were a team. And, you know, I think we just got to keep, you know, keep building.Maybe we always have a future is always going to be, you know, next season. So, I mean, we’ve got a lot of work to do. Right now, we got a lot of work to do next year. So.”
