The Steelers fell to the Bengals 41-10 on Sunday, matching their worst loss to Cincinnati in franchise history.

Despite getting back edge rusher T.J. Watt and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Steelers were down 31-3 at halftime.

Head coach Mike Tomlin was understandably not pleased after the game.

“We didn’t play nearly well enough in any of the phases. We got beat up front on both sides of the ball,” Tomlin said, via Brooke Pryor of ESPN. “We stunk it up today.”

After going 0-2-1 in the last three games, Tomlin said the Steelers will consider making changes along the lines.

“We’re open to doing whatever’s required to change,” Tomlin said. “We’re open to changes.”

Depending on the result of Sunday’s contest between the Browns and Ravens, the Steelers could wake up on Monday morning in last place in the AFC North. They’ll play their first of two matchups this season against Baltimore next week.

  1. Changes: Retire the QB, replace the O-line, find WR’s who can catch, fire the OC. The D is in decline, so start rebuilding that too. “Stunk it up” is the understatement of the year.

  2. Time to tank for a draft position. The Steelers need to find an answer at QB. Big Ben is done.

  3. Ben, JuJu, and Ebron out end of yr. About $30mill in cap dollars,in. Find capable QB in FA. Draft O linemen. Lots of them.

  4. What happened to the standard is the standard and excuses are tools for the incompetent? This clown gets outcoached every week yet gets a pass. Pittsburgh likes to talk about their historic franchise and all their moldy Lombardi’s, yet haven’t even won a playoff game in how long. New England is the epitome of a great franchise, Pittsburgh has become bottom dwellers

  5. If Tomlin really cared he would have tripped someone.

    Sad that you stayed up late to think of that and hope you didn’t hurt yourself doing it.

    Those hating on Tomlin need to check his record career wise before talking about firing him. When you are always drafting towards the back of the pack it eventually bites you….consider the Steelers chomped on.

  6. Tomlin is showing his true colors. A below average coach who has been propped up by the media last few seasons. 0 playoff wins last 5 seasons, constantly playing down to lesser competition, failure to prepare for quality opponents. He’s a smooth talker. But he’s all talk ! Records don’t lie and Mike Tomlin is an average coach.

  7. What a great coach. Always has been over his head. Only the talent has saved him.

    How profound lying Teddy. What coach isn’t saved by talent…..think a QB named….Brady. Teddy don’t try to be profound it will hurt you but thanks for the chuckle.

  8. Rooney could replace worthless Tomlin with Danny Smith, Keith Butler or anyone from the training staff and get the same results. This is rather embarrassing for such a golden organization, get used to the basement Pittsburgh. Tomlin is going nowhere, your owner is the reason for the “Rooney rule”. Enjoy!

  9. I love it even the refs couldn’t save them today after that beating.
    Qb is done and he is still the best qb on the team. O-line sucks, wr’s can’t catch, defense has three good players and one is 32 years old, the cornerbacks are the worst in the league, and they are stuck with an overrated terrible coach.
    Get used to last place in the division. Lol.

  10. Ben’s been fine. He just sucks against the Bengals. Has a 66.9 rating with 3 TDs to 5 picks in his last 3 against them. This isn’t Marvin’s Bengals anymore.

  11. Love the tunnel-vision Pats fans in here. Win a couple gms w/ some mediocre overrated QB from Bama, and BB back to “playing chess”. They let Brady leave – Pats trophies s/b getting “moldy” real soon.

  12. How are the Patriots “epitome of a great franchise ” when they give Aaron Hernandez $40 million and their dirty old owner Kraft is frequenting Japanese massage parlors in Florida?

  13. Tomlin has had this team underperforming for over a decade. He always gets them to a winning record. But considering the talent they have fielded over his tenure, he has grossly under performed as a head coach. How many playoff wins over the last ten years? He is constantly out coached, he has changed the OC how many times? His latest Matt Canada, was in the NFL for one season as a QB coach last season and it shows. I’ve been a big fan of Ben, but he has regressed and not been helped at all by his coaching staff. There is talent on the team, we need a coaching staff that can game plan and coach up to any competition. They have looked very unprepared all too often. I hate to say it, but the Pats are the benchmark when you look at how teams are coached. I’m sure Tomlin will somehow come out smelling like a rose and looking like a good coach with his catchy phrases and wordy interviews. SMH

    I didn’t stay up to think of it, it’s one of the most memorable acts he has ever performed and easily recalled.
    Haven’t the Patriots usually been drafting AFTER the Steelers? Haven’t the Patriots generally sucked at drafting 1st and 2nd rounders? My point is there is more than 1 way to build a team.

  15. I like when the trash talk gets to the point where we start talking about off the field issues and incidents with a teams fans. Patriots are a great franchise cause they’re winners. Steelers are a great franchise cause they’ve been sticking around forever. Just like the packers.

    If we gonna start throwing around insults about owners and fans, every team has something you can insult them about. As does every person you’ll ever meet.

  16. Earlier this year in the division: Steelers beat the Browns, Browns trounced the Bengals, Bengals trounced the Ravens, now the Ravens have beat the Browns. Maybe it’s just a really competitive division and each team has its good and bad days. This was definitely a bad day for the Steelers.
