Pittsburgh Steelers’ T.J. Watt: ‘No one’s really satisfied’ with how we’re playing

It’s clear after Sunday that, although they are undefeated at 6-0, the Steelers are not satisfied with their on-field play.

Pittsburgh has played only one complete game in all three phases, against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.

In Sunday’s postgame Zoom conference with Pittsburgh media, there wasn’t exactly a we’re-winners, we’re-undefeated ambiance.

It’s likely because the game was a tale of two teams. The Steelers’ performance was vastly different in the second half after heading into the locker room up by 17 points.

“We have goals so high for ourselves because we know what we can do when we feel like we can be a truly special defense,” said T.J. Watt during the postgame press conference.

“And that’s why no one’s really satisfied after today. We need to do a lot better job, especially in the second half. But it starts with the run. And even though we did a good job in the first half, we got to continue and roll it over into the second half.”

Terrell Edmunds echoed his teammate’s sentiments.

“We’re the only undefeated team in the NFL,” said Edmunds. “We are 6-0. We have to continue to work hard to play a full game. Once we play a full game, offense, defense, special teams, I think we will be great.”

Undefeated teams can sometimes become complacent, which leads to mistakes. One way to avoid that is to constantly be of the mindset that you’re not as good as you can be. Great teams know they can always be greater.

The bar has been set so high that anything short of it is unacceptable. Something tells me the Steelers won’t be fully satisfied unless they hoist that Lombardi trophy in February.
