PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh sports fans are starting to get worried.

Maurkice Pouncey, Larry Foote and LaRod Stephens-Howling are all out for the football season and the Pirates have fallen out of first place.

After the Steelers’ loss Sunday, many fans said the game was “despicable” and that they were left feeling sad.

And after the Pirates’ fourth loss in a row Sunday, fans were left with the same empty feeling.

“Teams go through those struggles sometimes,” one fan said.

It seems like there couldn’t have been a more demoralizing weekend for Pittsburgh sports fans.

“It’s real sad, it’s pathetic, we need help,” another fan said.

However, some fans still hold out hope that we can pick the slack, especially the Steelers.

“I just believe it could get better,” one optimistic fan said. “You know, it’s only the beginning of the season, you know, I think we can really – it can get better.”
