The Pittsburgh Steelers defense was torched by the Eagles last week in a blowout loss that saw the unit get clubbed like baby seals. However; the group says they aren’t going to start pointing fingers and using the blame game for their poor performance.
“(The message was) sticking together, looking at yourself first, not blaming other people,” linebacker L.J. Fort said, via ESPN.
“Cam did a great job and Will Gay of getting everybody together, making sure no one started pointing fingers.”
“We’re a confident group,” cornerback Ross Cockrell .
“We recognize we did not perform well, but we’re excited we have another opportunity. We’ll be extra critical of ourselves, look for those nuggets, what plays you could have made to help your team.”
“A lot of teams that are winning organizations, they start the blame each other and nobody really steps up and silences that,” Fort said.
