Today is December 23rd and that means it’s once again time for our annual “Airing of the Grievances” thread on this blessed Festivus day.
As usual, we offer this thread annually as a place for fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers to get things out of their systems and off their proverbial chests ahead of the regular season ending. Consider the airing of your Steelers grievances as a cleansing of sorts and a way to help you feel better right before Christmas and the Steelers Sunday road game against the New Orleans Saints.
Here are previous grievances threads to look back at.

The defense. And failure the to address certain needs on that side of the ball.

You don’t deserve to play with the best if you can’t routinely beat the worst.

There is potential of having to cheer for Cleveland in Week 17 and the thought of that makes me nauseous. 🤮🤮🤮

Three consecutive losses to subpar teams. With that, still ride or die! Gotta beat the Saints!!

The constant umderachieving against sub .500 teams. Year after year.

That after all these years KC and MT can’t seem to miss on drafting receivers but can’t seem to pick a corner if they were dangling out of their blowholes!!

GM and coaches have not been able to draft DBs as effective effective as Troy Polamalu and Ike Taylor and failed to get a player to replace Shazier.

Not enough bubblegum in the facility. This is totally not Danny Smith's burner acct btw.

Our defense is horrible and the drafting of defensive players has been even worse. Would love to see a defensive coordinator change.
— David (@DavidRaymondW) December 23, 2018
Tomlin and his horrible challenges. Why does he throw the red flag?!?
— Eric Schafer (@Eric_Schafer) December 23, 2018
