Steelers vs. Titans reactions: Pittsburgh reporters shrug at team's struggles

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to 2-3 overall on the season after watching the Tennessee Titans rally in the fourth quarter to win, 26-23, on Thursday night.

After the game, reporters following the team took to Twitter to discuss what has, to this point, been an underwhelming season of football in Pittsburgh.

Dale Lolley, a Steelers writer for The Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pa., tweeted bluntly that the team faces "the reality that they just might not be very good."

Lolley followed that up with what he called a "Tomlinism," referring to head coach Mike Tomlin, when he tweeted, "the rubber has hit the road and the vehicle has hit a tree."

Elsewhere, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review correctly tweeted, "At least the Steelers won't lose on Sunday."

Mike Prisuta of WDVE 102.5 radio in Pittsburgh referred back to the Steelers' gritty 16-14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5, tweeting that while the team's character may not be the issue, their ability, as evidenced by losing a late lead to the Titans, very well could be.
