The Steelers are by no means a finished product on either side of the ball
Let's be frank. The Steelers are an enigma. Entering the game against the Rams, both the Steelers offense and defense ranked near the bottom of every major statistical category with the exception of turnover differential and points allowed.
Against the Rams, we allowed only seventeen points and won the turnover battle. That frankly has been the difference all season, but I would argue that our style of play on defense through six games of the 2023 season is not sustainable.
Mike Tomlin has done an admirable job thus far of getting the most out of a defensive unit that has glaring needs, particularly at corner. The offense is still terrible, yet we found a way to score twenty-four points against the Rams.
Since it does not appear that Canada is going anywhere any time soon, Tomlin needs to figure out how to get the offense to be more consistent. That is the only way we are going to be able to make some noise, so to speak, down the stretch.
Look, I realize we have more wins than losses, but we could easily have more losses than wins and that is what's most concerning to me. Against the Rams, it certainly looked like we were headed for a loss, but we managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat yet again. How long will we be able to say that?
