AP Pro32 comments about Steelers

Tuesday - 12/11/2012, 6:58pm  ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Comments on the Pittsburgh Steelers by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

___

PITTSBURGH STEELERS (13)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 10) -- What was that?

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 14) -- Steelers have been inconsistent, but loss to Chargers was shocker.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 14)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 10) -- Ugly loss at home to San Diego, but I still trust them more than Baltimore and Cincinnati.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 16) -- On the day Ben Roethlisberger came back, the Steelers' defense left. Roethlisberger didn't help with an interception and a botched screen pass.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 13) -- The Steelers have the chance to become the only AFC team to go unbeaten against the NFC in 2012 with a victory Sunday over the Cowboys. Pittsburgh has swept the other three NFC East opponents.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 13) -- Ben Roethlisberger is back, but consistency is not. These guys too often play up or down to the competition.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 16) -- Middle of the pack seems about right for these aging warriors.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 11) -- Ben Roethlisberger looked rusty in his return. The defense looks challenged without Ike Taylor. They should bounce back if the o line can overcome the season ending injury to Willie Colon.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 13) -- The Steelers laid an egg against the Chargers. Hard to fathom an effort like that from this team with so much at stake.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 16) -- A 34-24 home loss to what was a slumping San Diego squad could ultimately cost the Steelers a playoff berth.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 16) -- Against the Raiders, Browns, Titans and Chargers, they are 0-4. Good thing the next two games are against contenders.
