The completion percentage of 51% looks good on paper, as does the 4.88 yards per attempt, but when you factor in the Chargers were 12 for 22 (55%) on 3rd downs and Philip Rivers was 11-of-19 (57.9%) 118 yards with 2 touchdowns on 3rd down, you can clearly see why the Steelers lost.
Curtis Brown was thrown at 6 times and allowed 6 receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown. 5 of those 6 were on 3rd down and all 5 of those moved the chains.

What exactly is the mindset of the 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers, now with just 3 games left on the schedule and the playoffs getting closer by the day? Are they truly a confident team like we always hear them talk about, or is there some doubt in the locker room with their identity and what they are capable of? It would be hard to blame them if there are doubts about the game plan every...
Earlier this season, Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety Ryan Clark suggested that perhaps many of his teammates had become too complacent and had an expectation of winning by just walking on the field. I saw some truth in his concerns then but now his statements could not be more accurate and they start with Mike Tomlin. Apparently the loss in Oakland wasn’t enough to awaken this team...
The Steelers continue to receive gift after gift from the rest of the NFL. Even the loss today at Heinz Field, 34-24 to the lowly Chargers still leaves them in control of the 6th seed in the playoffs by virtue of the Ravens and Bengals both losing. I’ve said it many times this year, if the Steelers have 9 lives they are burning through at a rapid pace. As Mike Tomlin said in his...

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost to the San Diego Chargers Sunday 34-24 and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
The quick screen to Mike Wallace on the first play was an excellent call to get Ben Roethlisberger an easy first throw and Wallace involved in the game early. I called for such a thing in my pregame 7 keys article as well...
