The O-Line needs major help though Essex impressed me last night because he actually for the most part played better than the injured starters did this year. The future is bright for the Steelers and next season is just 7 months away!!!!!
Haggans is UFA in February so I would expect Woodley to take over for him. Timmons needs to push the ILBs. Farrior is fast falling off as he gets older.

Our biggest needs are by far on the OL. Sean Mahan is perhaps the worst FA signing since we tried to replace Rod Woodson and Willie Williams with Donnell Wolford and J.B. Brown.

Watch what you say or they will delete your post. I was critical of Arians last night and they locked my thread.:shake01

It sucks, but I'm surprisingly ok with it. I guess the big difference is this year, the team that beat us actually did it without cheating or any other b.s. We just ran up against a better team, and a team I can respect. Best of luck to the jags.

i went into the game expecting a blowout b/c of how beat up we were. yes, i was upset that we lost and it sucked because i was getting excited about our 4th quarter comeback, but like putting a needle in a balloon all the air was let out.

i am impressed with tomlin's first season as a rookie HC. now next season he needs to take that next step.

Barring a catastrophic injury next year I think AFC North champions and a playoff win are realistic goals, maybe more depending on what the Colts, Jags, Browns and Pats do.

i almost wish it would have just stayed a blow out you hate to mount an emotional comeback like that, and it be all for nothing. i hate losing like that.

i think if the browns get their defense right they will be a tough team next season. and is if they keep anderson at qb.

Sad. That's how I feel today.

I wasn't ready for the season to end. I know we are a better team than Jacksonville and we didn't show it. Nothing anyone says to me will make me feel better about losing to a David Garrard quarterbacked team. I don't care what his TD/Int ratio is....he is a safe QB that no team will ever win a SB with...and you can put that in bold print.

I would have handled a loss next week much better because I do believe that New England is the best team in the league this season...and by a large margin...but Jacksonville is not near that category.

I don't blame any one player, ref, coach, etc. It just didn't work out and I'm pretty bummed out about it.

Meh. First it was the Ravens, then the Bengals, now we're back to the Browns.


Like the last 10 years in this division the Browns next year will be just another victim!
