Multiple choice: Who’s more fatigued after Pittsburgh’s embarrassing 27-24 loss to Tampa Bay?

A. The Steelers because it takes a lot of work to lose that badly

B. The Buccaneers-they played their best, which isn’t saying much, and still won.

C. The refs from throwing flags at the countless penalties

D. Snoop Dogg from his many Twitter rants along with a profanity-laced video of his thoughts about the outcome of said embarrassing game

The Steelers suffered a major setback after being praised all week for their quality playing in last week’s game against Carolina. Expect zero praise this week as Pittsburgh will be on the receiving end of major criticism from all angles.

When you have Snoop Dogg calling you out, you know it’s bad.

The many penalties accumulated by the Steelers are sure to be dealt with. A total of six 15 yard penalties ranging from Antonio Brown’s touchdown celebration to facemask grabs were racked up by the home team.

I wouldn’t want to be on the other side of a heated coach Tomlin when he discusses the penalties that you’d expect more from amateurs and not so-called professional players.

The Steelers did give their fans a couple of reasons to wave their Terrible Towels though. James Harrison was greeted out of the tunnel with loud cheers and fan favorite, Heath Miller, aka “HEEEEATHHHHH!” caught his first touchdown pass of the season.

Fantasy football fans from all over couldn’t care less about the game loss as they all saw a big payoff from Antonio Brown for their leagues with 131 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Though Roethlisberger threw for 314 yards with 3 touchdowns, it wasn’t enough to seal the deal in the end. Tampa Bay shocked us all with a game winning and game ending touchdown.

The Steel Curtain will be sure to redeem themselves as they hit the road this week to Jacksonville. The only thing worse than losing to 0-3 Bucs would be losing to the 0-4 Jags.

Steelers fans will be crossing everything possible this week with hopes of what should be an easy win and thus avoid being taunted mercilessly for two weeks in a row.
