As all of Steelers Nation knows, the Steelers went on the road and dropped one to the Saints.
The game was not show (again) in Buenos Aires, due to the World Series (ESPN normally carries the Sunday and Monday night games in Latin America – the World Series takes precedence, I guess.)
Not being able to see the game, I cannot offer much in the way of analysis.
And perhaps that is for the best. Upon arriving home Sunday evening after a mini-5 day vacation in Uruguay I learned that the man I’d grown to love as my Argentine “uncle” had died suddenly while I was a way. One of those times when football simply takes a backseat.
What Went Wrong?
A day later my spirits are still low, but my curiosity has perked up, wondering what went wrong for the Steelers.
- Did the Steelers penchant for giving up late touchdowns come back to burn them?
- Did they simply self destruct?
- Or is the offensive line simply a bigger liability than had once been hopped?
