The Steelers are coming off a 6-10 season and barely beat a sloppy Raiders team behind Maddox in the home opener. They march into defending division champ Baltimore and get waxed 30-13 in a rampant display of offensive and defensive ineptitude. Maddox is knocked out and Ben is thrown into the lineup. Lemme also remind you that the Steelers had O-Line issues in 2003 as well.

I wonder how many of you were throwing in the towel on the season? Don't lie. I'm sure most of us were. How many of you expected the Steelers wouldn't lose again until January? I certainly didn't. Not with the defending SB Champ Patriots and Eagles on the schedule.

What I'm getting at here is that crazier sh*t have happened. It's a long season. Remember last year the Steelers came out like gangbangers but faded down the stretch thanks to injuries? Here's hoping this year it's the opposite and the team gets in gear at the right time.

That's the best shred of optimism I can give right now.

It's not optimism, it's realism. It's only week 3!

In another example, the recent Super Bowl champion New York Giants climbed out of an 0-2 hole to start their season.

Anything's possible at this point. Who wudda thunked that Brady would get injured in week 1 for the entire season?

I have faith, and I have hope. There really no reasons to doubt!

nobody should be throwing in the towel.. you shouldn't even bother being a football fan if you think a 2-1 team is done.. look at the rest of the division for christ sake. our backups should be able to give each of those teams a good game and probably win.

I do remember those days Edmond, and I was really excited about what our young rookie could do for us. But to think that our season would end up the way it did... no way!!

Our schedule looks rough this year, but everyone has to play the games right? Never know about injuries thats for sure.. Patriots I am almost certain were not expecting to lose Brady in week one either. Season must go on and we are not 1-2 or 0-3 right.. we are still at 2-1 and 2 games up on the browns.. but the Ravens are up next and I am beginning to think mabye they are our compitition for '08 in our division. The Browns were so overhyped and I am loving it.

Thanks Ed for the thoughts!!

My gosh, we are facing a team with absolutely no offense. We can score more points with our defense than what they can with their offense. This game shouldn't even be close, even with our key injuries.
