What I can’t understand is why. It’s not that losing bothers me as much as lack of pride or self-esteem. How do you give up 82 points in the last two games? How do you, in the words of Mike Tomlin, get beat up front and both sides of the ball?” Bleier asked rhetorically.

Big Ben after the game said ‘It is what it is. It happens sometimes. We need to play better.’ My reaction – no s—. So why don’t you play better? I don’t want to hear about injuries. We got beat even when everyone was healthy. I don’t want to hear about anything because actions speak louder than words. And at this stage of the game, those actions spell out loser. It’s not what we want to hear but it is the truth.
