While I don't agree with you that without the fumbles we would have lost today, I do agree with you that I am tired of the argument:
EVERY TEAM GEARS UP TO PLAY THE STEELERS
Okay. These same teams still find ways to get blown out by the Patriots, Packers and other elite teams. Why do the Steelers struggle?
Since the Chiefs had the Steelers on the brink of defeat, their last two games they have lost combined 15-45. One of the excuses I heard at half time of the Steeler game was that the "Chiefs are playing for their coach".... what? I am sure their players know that Crennel is not a good HC and no matter what, he is gone after this season. They weren't playing for their coach. They were taking it to the Steelers and someone posted that so that they
felt better about what was happening to the Steelers.
It seems sometimes that reality escapes the faithful.
