Default Let's All Enjoy This Season

Not every season is going to result in a winning record.

Any season that does not result in a Lombardi Trophy is a failure- might as well enjoy the ride rather than be miserable 9 out of 10 seasons.

Enjoy watching the team we all know and love because we only get to see Jarvis Jones rookie year once. This could be the last year for a few Steelers veterans.

Take the opportunity to remain positive knowing that there are young players on the roster who will become the future of the organization. This team is rebuilding.

Enjoy the ride.

And the 0-2 means you don't make the playoffs is a really stupid stat. A meaningful stat would be how many teams that made the playoffs the previous year went 0-2 and still made the playoffs. It really doesn't matter if Jacksonville, Tampa Bay or Cleveland start out 0-2 because they were never going to make the playoffs anyways.

If this season turns bad, (honestly I still think we have a chance to do well, its only week one)

Remember us getting our ass whipped by the Ravens week one in 2011?


That said. Rewatching the game. This team has a chance.


Large part of our struggles was Kasey was schooling Beachum at Center. Beachum was definitely out of place


Large amount of sacks attributed to RBs failing to pick up their assignments correctly.


Redman's poor vision (there were actually cutback lanes)


Our D-line looks Good. Especially Cam. Cam was able to get after the QB as the Nickle DT, I think he had 4 QB pressures in his limited snaps. Thats good work.


we are gonna find out what this team is made of real soon

I think that if I was able to enjoy watching the Steelers in the 80's, I'll be able to enjoy watching them now. No way am I giving up after just 1 game.

Mark my words, the Steelers WILL win the AFCN, and will make more than a little noise in the playoffs. And yes, I fully expect them to play in the Super Bowl.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some beer to drink.

We need turnovers this week. More than one. JJ can help provide that, as can healthy and active Woodley and Polamalu.

I think the defense will hold their own tonight. I fear the offense will try to slam average RBs into an average to bad OL facing a top notch DL all night long, resulting in long yardage, sacks, and punts.

Please surprise us all, Mr. Haley, and actually design a game plan to fit the opponent.

Exactly. I might drink a little more this season but that's ok - I love my Steelers win or lose.

But if they draw - its on! they seriously need to get rid of ties in the regular season IMO

I don't think they're going to do any worse than 8-8 this season again and 9-7 or 10-6 is still within grasp

Even the Broncos and Seahawks of the world are going to stumble. Don't get too enamored with Peyton Manning. Watching the Broncos Giants game last night (bro in law from Jersey) we both said "Just wait until playoff time"

My gut tells me teams that are still working on things will peak at the right time and the Broncos will be regular season champs. There is only 1 way to go for the Broncos now.

Again, enjoy it for what it is. You never know what can happen.

#s don't lie. Only 12% of teams that start 0-2 make the play offs. If Pgh pulls off a win tonight, I like their chances. If they don't, they won't be going to the play offs. Season will be over.
