Default HERE is the Reality...

First off, let's dispel the excuses. The Cowboys were really no more injured than we were. Nothing there.

The Steelers had a great gameplan on both sides of the ball. There was poor execution. As a microcosm, look at the 4th and goal play when Colon slipped. Tipped balls. Etc, etc...

We are 10-3. We have played a tough schedule. It won't get easier. Yeah, we win ugly, but WE WIN.

It's time for the haters and doubters to hop on board. This Steelers team is legit. Is it perfect? Eff no. But do they win? Hell yeah!

I'm with you rev...

It was an ugly win...one of the ugliest wins I've seen all year....but the last few minutes of the game might have been the most beautiful I've seen all year.

If we could just capture the emotion we played with in those last few minutes and apply it to the ENTIRE game....I can't even fathom the possibility.

I love the way this game ended up...but a sense of urgency needs to take hold of the offense. We're taking our #1 defense for granted. We can't put so much pressure on them. They've performed beautifully all year, but at some point the offense needs to compliment them.

Make no mistake about it. The Cowboys needed this win. They played their guts out. They are a quality football team. And we found a way...

I suspect that will be the 2008 "Steelers way" : We find a way to win.

Winning ugly sometimes builds character.

It's definately an ugly win, not exactly proud of it, but you'll have to take it.

Dude, what do you want? We scored 17 unanswered in the 4th quarter when just about everybody - including you, had left us for dead on the side of the road against probably the 2nd-best team the NFC had to offer. I'm damned proud of it.

I still would like to see what this team is capable of if they play 60 entire minutes of Steeler football.

They would be among the best EVER.

I'd rather have an ugly win, than a pretty loss.
