No shame in losing by 3 in OT to a solid team on the road. This wasn't NEARLY as bad as the Browns or Chargers game.
If we had won, we still would have to have beaten Cincy. Now instead of beating the Cowboys as the other game to get in, it's the Browns in Pitt.
Big deal. This team can and, mark my words, will continue on into the playoffs as usual.
I'll gladly accept any bets otherwise.
Big deal? The issue isn't THAT we lost. It's HOW we lost. And, it's not that we lost THIS time like that, it's that we've lost NUMEROUS times like that this season.
I'm going to "mark your words" and believe me, I'd be more than happy to admit that you're right. But, there's no evidence that this team is prepared to win next Sunday or the following.
Again, hope I'm wrong.
