With yet another loss, we sit here and wonder what happened. Another game we could have won slipped through our fingers once again. The defense was very solid, though it did give up a couple of long drives, one was stopped with a pick by Buchannon. The defense really only gave up 7 points, as the field goal came after a fumble by Williams deep in our own territory.

Ugly Loss/Clayton On IR

Well, that ugly loss was brought to you by Bruce and Co. What a nice display of turnovers. I'm really starting to wonder if Bruce is ever going to improve. His interceptions were just horrible throws, and there were numerous times when he had guys open but failed to throw the ball. He's going to the check downs way too quickly, and seems to be sensing pressure and just freaking out. Then there's the one sack he took because he decided to run out to his right where Joseph and Trueblood had pushed there DE out around the pocket. He should have stayed put but ran outside and the DE just peeled off the blocks for the easy sack. Then there was the sack by Porter from behind when he knew that Porter was running him down, and he had time to throw the ball away as he ran toward the sideline. The pick in the endzone, which came two plays after Clayton sacrificed his knee to get a first down and trying to punch it in after failing to catch the wide open deep TD pass, was just absolutely horrendous. You just don't throw that pass like that. It was hideous. And the defense folded right after that. Think about the fact that we out rushed the Steelers, and could have made it a field goal game, and he does the worst thing possible.

Should Gruden Stay?

I've been having forum arguments lately about Gruden and his role with the team. A number of people of turned sour on Gruden (man, are people fickle or what?) and want him gone, or would be fine with his departure. So what do I think of this?
