Steelers can’t shake following big wins with deflating losses

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — “Same old Steelers” is a phrase that predates the glorious rise of the organization in the 1970s, and the context of it is hardly flattering.

It is what local sports fans would often mutter when the Pittsburgh Steelers would lose, something they had a habit of doing before Chuck Noll arrived as head coach in 1969 and transformed the franchise.

The current Steelers are in danger of dusting off the phrase that has mothballs on its mothballs because of their maddening inconsistency and tendency to follow a big win with a loss to an underwhelming opponent.
