Default What a surprise!

The Steelers are GREAT at losing the BIG games. I would have rather had the Steelers go 0-16 than come this far and LOSE. The whole season is now pointless. Better luck next year. I think it's time for a vacation... I'm so disgusted.

I'm very disappointed we lost, but still they had an amazing season. Got to give them that. We all wanted the super bowl bad.

Words cant even describe it..I am just totally numb... You just cant have turnovers and big plays against you on defense in a game like this.

Im just heartbroken....

I think the formula is have run game, run defense to get to playoffs. Hold on to ball to win playoffs.

Well... I'm relatively calm now. I don't think I was too hard on the Steelers. Everyone wants to win, ya know? We've all dealt with these types of outcomes many times, that the frustration just keeps building up after each disappointing loss. Win or lose though, I'm still a Steelers fan till the day I die.

The Steelers had a GREAT season, and as I stated on the web site... "We may have fell short in '04. But we'll be back, and STRONGER than ever before!". That should be our 2005 slogan. Go Steelers! ;D

It was a season that surpassed expectations, and for that I am thankful. But, this is Pittsburgh not Arizona, season's aren't great unless there is a trophy involved.

I think we might be seeing a rebirth of "3 more yards" on the team. I think this loss hurt as deep as being beat by the Chargers. Watch for those OTA in the offseason and see how many Steelers show up early, start lifting weights, etc. And there might not be as much fun next year, just plain business.

There's no doubt think this can serve as a motivation, and if anybody can motivate the team, its BC and company...but I just hope Jerome is here for the ride !!!

As sick as we all are, at least it was fun. After 6-10 last year we all were just hoping for 9-7 and maybe make the playoofs. The Steelers played better than any of us could have imagined. After a 6-10 season lets hope this was just a stepping stone. Big Ben will bring us One For The Thumb.

wow, talk about double clicking. Can't wait to see how much study time Ben puts in on zone defenses this off season. Also read an article from a fan who was at the draft and said once Rivers was gone, we didn't think Ben would fall to us so we started to put together a package to get Lee Evans(wr - Buf). Pretty interesting as we wait to see what we do with Plax.
