NASHVILLE (93-7 THE FAN) — Once again, the Steelers lost on the road to a fledgling AFC opponent, hemorrhaging more points than most would have imagined. Once again, one of their defensive leaders explained it bluntly.

“We’re not strong mentally,” linebacker Larry Foote told 93.7 The Fan’s Jeff Hathhorn after a 26-23 upset loss to the Tennessee Titans at LP Field. “We don’t look like a championship team right now. Everybody here’s been knocked down, everybody’s had doors shut in their face, everybody’s gotten beat.”

Foote, who finished with six tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble, remained upbeat as the Steelers get a couple extra days to solve their on-field problems, not to mention a few more bites by the injury bug.

“Our goals are still reachable. I’m excited to see how we’re going to respond. We’ve only played five games. We’ve got 11 left.”

He spoke further about the Steelers’ difficulty winning on the road, now that the team has dropped four of five away from Heinz Field dating back to last season:

The Steelers (2-3) visit Cincinnati (3-2) next Sunday night.
