AND YOU KNOW, IT'S FRUSTRATING BECAUSE YOU HOLD - HOLD MYSELF TO A HIGHER STANDARD

THAN THAT. STEELERS HAD MORE PENALTY YARDS THAN TOTAL YARDS THROUGH THE FIRST THREE QUARTERS. THE FOURTH QUARTER NUMBERS ARE DECEPTIVE BECAUSE IT LOOKED LIKE THE RAVENS HAD A SOFTER DEFENSE. AND BEN ROETHLISBERGER TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THAT. BUT NOT ENOUGH, AS THE RAVENS PICK UP THE WIN. WHAT IS IT WITH THIS TEAM THAT COULD PUT UP 40 POINTS AND THEN DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS SEEMS LIKE WE TALK ABOUT THIS EVERY TWO OR THROE WEEKS. BUT WHEN I LOOK AT THEIR OFFENSE, IT SEEMS LIKE THEY ONLY HAVE TWO GUYS OFFENSIVELY. ANTONIO BROWN, COACH, AND LE'VEON BELL. THEY DEPEND ON THOSE TWO GUYS. AND THEY DON'T HAVE A RELIABLE THIRD OPTION. WELL, AND BEN WAS RUSTY, TODAY, COMING OUT. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. HE WARMED UP IN THAT FOURTH QUARTER. BUT WHEN YOU DON'T BLOCK TERRELL SUGGS ON ONE OF THE FIRST PASSES OF THE GAME, PENALTIES, DROPPED BALLS. WE'VE SEEN THIS OVER AND OVER. THREE-GAME LOSING STREAK. PITTSBURGH HAS MORE TALENT THAN THIS. YOU START LOOKING AT THE TALENT. AND YOU START LOOKING AT THE COACHING STAFF. THIS COACHING STAFF, THEY'VE HAD SUCCESS. YOU CAN'T MAKE THESE ROOKIE MISTAKES AND EXPECT TO BE IN THE PLAYOFFS AND GO FAR. THEY DON'T HAVE A TIGHT END. MARTAVIS BRYANT, BEING SUSPENDED. THEY'RE TRYING TO MAKE SAMMIE COATES INTO A WIDE RECEIVER. HOW DO YOU SEE THE AFC NORTH PLAYING OUT HERE THEY LET CINCINNATI BACK IN IT NOW. BALTIMORE HAD BEEN ON THE LOSING STREAK. THEY'VE GOTTEN BACK. I LIKE THE TEAMS WITH THE BEST DEFENSE. PITTSBURGH IS NOT PLAYING GREAT DEFENSE NOW. CINCINNATI IS NOT. YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT BALTIMORE. I KNOW YOU DON'T LIKE BALTIMORE. BUT THEY'RE PLAYING THE BEST DEFENSE OF ANYBODY. WHEN I LOOK AT THE STEELERS, I KNOW THEY HAVE A YOUNG DEFENSE. AND THE DEFENSE HAS BEEN INCONSISTENT. BUT I LIKE THEIR OFFENSE STILL. BEN IS THE BEST QUARTERBACK IN THAT DIVISION. AND I THINK THEY'LL GET BACK ON TRACK. THEY'LL SCORE SOME POINTS. BUT WE KNOW THAT THE DEFENSE IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE UP AND DOWN. WHY DON'T YOU LIKE BALTIMORE
