Steelers Aiming for Better Playoff Record
- By ALAN ROBINSON, AP Sports Writer

Saturday, July 30, 2005
(07-30) 13:34 PDT Pittsburgh (AP) --

For perhaps the only time in their 73-season history, the Pittsburgh Steelers head to training camp Sunday knowing that repeating their regular-season record of the year before isn't a realistic goal.

That's why the unspoken but very apparent theme heading into Bill Cowher's 14th training camp as coach is this: It's not just about a great start in September or October, but how you finish in January and February.

That's why, at least in Cowher's mind, the Steelers aren't coming off a 15-1 season, but rather 1-1 ? their playoff record. They may have enjoyed the NFL's best regular season, but it was again the New England Patriots, not the Steelers, who were cradling the Lombardi Trophy when the playoffs ended nearly six months ago.

So much for the regular season: in both the 2001 and 2004 seasons the Steelers had the superior record going in, yet it was the Patriots who won the AFC championship at Heinz Field.

"We understand that we're not trying to live up to a 15-1 record. How can you do better than that?" Cowher said. "Hey, the bottom line is we were 1-1 in the post season. That's why we've got to go back up to training camp and create that foundation ? we're back at the bottom, building our way up."

I like that attitude...forget about that NFL record, forget about all the awards Ben got last year, get back to the basics, that's where we need to be!

Its all about the ring. I would take 8-8 with a ring. Anyday. 15-1 was great fun, and what a ride. But we want the ring.
