Default This is why losses suck more than they should...

The stupidity and knee-jerk negativity of Chicken Little Steelers fans. It happens after every single loss. Losses are depressing, but these guys make it worse.

"This is not a good team"
"This team sucks"
"Fire Tomlin"
"Our season is over"
"The Sky is falling"

Just venting.

I hear you on that, Edman. Last night around here was ridiculous with the gloom and doom. I think some underestimated the Cards. They were fired up and wanted to not only win that game against the undefeated Steelers in their own back yard, but for their new HC. I'm over it already - time to focus on the Waaaahawks game this Sunday.

I too had a feeling this would be a loss for us. When the thread about pick the win-loss record against the record was out there, I picked this one as a loss. But as for the we suck, fire coach, season is over comments, that is just stupidity. It is one freaking game, that's it. We are tops in the division, the other three don't look that good. And the Cards were a good team Sunday. We will be fine!

Ya, every loss is hard to swallow, no doubt....but it's only 1 game! Let's see who's going to the playoff, beside Indy & NE. I just hope Tomlin got new schemes, like NO HUDDLE Packages, that would be nice, considering the opponent's TOs would be wasted & confusion on their side. Keep movin' on & stay focus...GO B&G

To me, the reason this loss sucks more than it should was the missed opportunities. When you play a good game and get beat, that's easier to take. I felt like this was a game we should have won. However, it was a tough road game against coaches who may have had our number. Anyway, that was yesterday...

I can't wait to see them spring back against the Seahawks. I think they are going to be fired up at home and lay some lumber! I think they are going to come out focused and prepared.

My concern right now are the defensive injuries. Has their been any news yet on how bad those guys are hurt?

You are so right. Chicken Little is the perfect name for them. This is one of 16, yes we should have won, but we were going up against two coaches that knew our players backward and forward. I give credit where credit is due. The cardinals played great, and we were still in it to the end. If not for the penalty situation I think we would have pulled it out (one of which lead to the punt return TD).

The sky is definately not falling.

One game and some people are ready to throw this team under a truck! How incredibly stupid!

First of all, Arizona played a great game. Whiz had his guys prepared...you have to give him credit for that. Plus, we made some dumb mistakes-too many penalties, like bonehead Taylor's unsportsmanlike conduct call. Dag, Ike! Just go back to the huddle and STHU! I'm sure he made "The News" for that!

But we will see the mettle this team has to re-adjust and move on from this and prepare for the Seahags on Sunday.

The only thing I'm worried about following that ishow badly they were able to shut Parker down. I'm hoping game tapes won't give future opponents the blue-print on how to stop fast willie ( well that and the large number of injuries as well)

Sometimes I think we rely on WP a bit too much. I think the coaches should share the wealth as far as our RB's. Maybe take Willie out on a couple of plays and use a set with Kreider and/or Davenport in the backfield.

All of the backs we have have certain strengths. I say use 'em. Just sayin...
