Channeling Sheba, is it due to:

3. After all the near misses this team lost all motivaton after it finally won it all?
IMHO this season is over - the '76 Steelers made the playoffs after a 1-4 start but this is not the '76 Steelers
I tend to agree with #2 and #3.
Cowher has a far away-unmotivated look and the team is playing as his mirror image.
The Steelers are not going to the playoffs and they might be looking at a 8-8 season.
