None really....this is about as worse a shape this era of Steelers has been in headed into the off-season

The upside for me at least.....is that I think this team this year has taught me how to handle losing a bit better.

Hope the Steelers can put it back together again strong next season.......Will be a hell of a task.....but it can be done if everybody in that organization gets on the same page an works together

Its Christmas time and Im bound and determined to not let this stuff drag on me. After what happened on the 14th.....Im going to hug my family a little harder and be that much more thankful....Yes life feels really good when we're winning bowls every other year.....but when ya take off the war paint and step back a little, life is still nice

One silver lining: That the Bungles will eventually get creamed by the Cheatriots in the first round..
Like the old saying, better them than us..

My silver lining:

On defense, turnovers happen when you're aggressive and not sitting back to "tackle the catch." Hopefully the team can take this into next season.

The silver lining is maybe after another lackluster season Rooney will make some more changes.

Shaun Suisham.

I hope he is holding his head high because his missed kicks were ones that should not have been attempted to begin with. 53 yards in Hienz Field? Ya right.

I'm thinking Cortez Allen. Plays close to his receiver and reacts to the ball.
Looks like a bonafide CB.
I don't see a silver lining.

Of course maybe if Haley got hit by a bus, then I might change my mind about that.

The defense. Kept them in games all year. We're it not for them this team would be well below .500 with all the turnovers that the offense makes on a weekly basis. If Lebeau retires, they'll go 3 and 13.

The good news is we should get the number 12 or 13 pick in the draft. We really need an awesome OLB'er.

Another silver lining is their record. Normally a team with one of the worst turnover ratios in the league would be a total bottom feeder. I'll give Tomlin that for making a competitive team out of one that had no business being in the running.
