Right now, Ben and Co. have to look at this is as a kind of a practice. Which is not what they (or the fans) were hoping for. This last quarter, they were playing for pride and pride only. Two positives have come out this (even if they no longer matter in terms of winning):

That last punt (which would have ordinarily been awesome) was the longest punt in Steelers since the 40's.

Mike Wallace is finally starting to get his mojo back.

Again, it's not enough. They were playing a team that has nothing left to play for aside from playing for Norv, and to play the part of spoiler for teams like the Steelers. Today, the Chargers managed to do both.

Im not sure Tomlin sympathizers would have much ammo after today. It is very obvious this is the same team it was at the beginning of the season and nothing has changed.

Unprepared. Undisciplined. As usual.

The difference the team is not great anymore and cant recover from its mistakes. So it has to play clean disciplined football. But it just DOES NOT on a consistent bases.

Oh, look. The Bengals and Ravens lost. So, this game meant exactly 0 in terms of us losing. Would it have been better to win? Absolutely. Are we all Steelers fans again and be very optimistic? Some of you guys are unreal.

Ben threw a pick - cut him. Everything bad that has happened to the Steelers in the history of the organization is Tomlin's fault, and Dwyer is a legitimate running back. Sounds about right.

Deserving or not...Steelers still control their own destiny even after today.

What's sad is that a loss at home to team with a losing record isn't a shock to me. Nor is poor use of timeouts (because they are wasted to stop penalties).

I like Mike Tomlin, but this is one very unorganized franchise.

Oh, and Pouncey at center looked bad today. I was actually glad to see Legursky take the center spot and Pouncey move to guard.

Care factor ZERO. When you are counting on other teams to lose to help you get into the play offs this early you are already done. This team will get destroyed by the Texans, new england and probably Denver or any real SB contender. They might be able to compete and maybe even win 1 game with those teams but never two in a row. Forget it, it aint happening.

This is a stupid post. Are you insinuating that if we make the playoffs we should not show up because we don't "deserve" it?
