Sometimes you learn you best lessons in defeat, and the Steelers learnt 10-times as much on sunday than they did in the first two weeks - there is plenty of time to absorb these lessons and keep improving.
I agree with this. Losing though bitter in taste, is kinda good cause even last year you sensed the reg season win against the Pats was only a false sense of security. At least with the loss, should we meet again, we know nothing but the best will due in order to secure a win. We know we still have to manage 3rd downs and control turnovers.
