No matter how hard you may wish it, the Steelers CAN NOT beat the Ravens, or Patriots, or Packers, or Texans, or '85 Bears, or '72 Dolphins this week. So, you're just going to have to wait a while to be impressed.
well said, mr trout.

i think some people are hoping for, or waiting for a single win that will erase the horrible pain and humiliation they feel from losing last week to the ravens.

but theres not a single game that can do that, and mike tomlin acknowledged as much in his post game presser.

ultimately we're fans of a team where the superbowl is the standard. we could go undefeated for the rest of the regular season and it wouldnt mean jack squat towards erasing the week one loss, if we didnt win it all.
