Steel City Blitz:
New York Giants
The Pittsburgh Steelers first-team offense has now gone two straight preseason appearances without a touchdown. While the opener against the New York Giants offered some glimmers of hope from this unit, last night’s debacle in the nation’s capitol took the shine away in an instant.
As expected, Steeler Nation is understandably searching out one of several bridges from which to leap today. What the loss to Washington felt like was a complete and total repeat from many games of the 2012 season. The offense was troubled by penalties, missed assignments and turnovers while the defense was good, but just not good enough.
Much of the finger pointing is at 2nd year offensive coordinator Todd Haley. The monumental shift from Bruce Arians’ downfield passing attack to his short-passing, run-oriented attack has left many fans scratching their heads. Haley’s offense may be struggling again but he is far from the entire problem right now.
