Steelers Lose to Saints, 20-10; Game Not Shown in Buenos Aires (Again)

As all of Steelers Nation knows, the Steelers went on the road and dropped one to the Saints.

The game was not show (again) in Buenos Aires, due to the World Series (ESPN normally carries the Sunday and Monday night games in Latin America – the World Series takes precedence, I guess.)

Not being able to see the game, I cannot offer much in the way of analysis.

And perhaps that is for the best. Upon arriving home Sunday evening after a mini-5 day vacation in Uruguay I learned that the man I’d grown to love as my Argentine “uncle” had died suddenly while I was a way. One of those times when football simply takes a backseat.

What Went Wrong?

A day later my spirits are still low, but my curiosity has perked up, wondering what went wrong for the Steelers.

  • Did the Steelers penchant for giving up late touchdowns come back to burn them?
  • Did they simply self destruct?
  • Or is the offensive line simply a bigger liability than had once been hopped?

Reading the write ups on the Post-Gazette all seem like plasuable answers, but I am interested in knowing what your analysis is. Please take a moment to share your insights by leaving a comment.

Sorry to hear about your loss. It's never easy to lose someone close, best wishes to you. I'm a PA native who's about to move to Buenos Aires the middle of this month. I think I've seen on your site that you can watch some games at a place called the Drinking Galley. Is that still going on this year? I realize I won't be able to see all of the Steelers' games, but any I get to catch would be a bonus. I won't have satellite TV so going out is my only option. Any help you can provide would be great. Thanks, and take care.

Not familiar with the Drinking Galley, but that is possible. BA is crawling with expats, but I am not plugged into that scene.

One place to go is the Alamo although I am not a big fan of the place.
