If we gripe this much about the Steelers missing the playoffs one year, I'd hate to imagine how much Cleveland, Buffalo, and Detroit fans complain about their teams. With that having been said, the Steelers will be back in the playoffs sooner rather than later. Go Steelers!
I'd imagine a few more mediocre-to bad seasons in a row might help Steelers fans not get there hope so high - I'm sure most of those fan bases just count wins as a bonus and root with a nothing to lose attitude
Maybe the next time the Steelers seriously contend, Steelers fans will cherish it that much more.
