PITTSBURGH (93.7 THE FAN)- Every Monday morning, 93.7 The Fan Steelers Insider, and Post-Gazette Beat Writer, Ed Bouchette talks to the Fan Morning Show. This week he recaps a 34-24 loss to the San Diego Chargers.
Ed talks about the Steelers mindset going into games against teams with weak records. Ed says that the proof is on tape, that the Steelers may actually be “playing down” to the level of the competition that they play. Some of the veterans of the Steelers even said as much after the game, that they were not ready for the game.
Ike Taylor will continue to heal his broken ankle, and Ed says that the cornerbacks were a major let down. Curtis Brown was picked apart in third down situations. Cortez Allen had a rough game, also.
Willie Colon left the game after aggravating his knee injury. Ed tells us that it looks like Willie will miss the rest of the season. Ed isn’t sure if the team will turn to David DeCastro, or if they will continue to move Maurkice Pouncey to Guard.
