Default Glass Half Full...Empty? I think it's Half Full

We all would have taken 11-4...First Round Bye...if offered this before the season began.

This team has answered the bell all year. We won the game we absolutely had to have last week. Home Field Advantage would have been nice, but...as we have seen in very recent history...it's not everything. Tennessee still has to win in order to keep it.

I don't think we gave them our best shot...but I think they gave us theirs.

We have a scrimmage next week, 2 weeks off to get rested and healthy, another team that cursed themselves by stomping on the Towell, and a does of humble pie to motivate us over the next 3 weeks.

ITS ON!

Well said. Nice to see some optimism for a change after a loss.

My glass is Full.

I don't fear the playoffs like some people obviously do.

I wonder if some people just have fear of Success.

To be honest, the most important thing to me was getting out of the building with everyone healthy, win or lose, which unfortunately did not happen with Clark going down. The starters will get minimal work next week, get through the bye and get ready to go on January 10 or 11. And let's just hope that Clark's injury isn't too serious.

with the majority of the steelerfans, they will see it as half empty, especially after being atop the power ranking for a week, and now seeing the team drop down to 5th or 6th.

we are damn LUCKY. we are tied with the colts (and would lose a head-to-head tiebreaker, yet we get the 2 seed and they are stuck with the #5.

i'll take it!

You should see all the bridge jumpers out here in Dallas. Talk about a bad smell around a city.

ahh i was thinkin about starting one too=)
Im not angry with the loss today even though every lost game hurts!
the team looked tired and kinda banged up after 5 weeks of "play-offs" games against the best teams in the league.
The Titans came with all they had. We did not, so im very optimistic about meeting them again in the play-offs(if it happens of course).
The glass is definately half full!

My glass is 3/4 full because this game did not take that much out of me. its not the end of the world and seeing Lendale Fatso stomp on the towel got me so angry that the people around my house got scared of me since Im not an angry guy, I hope this guy has his profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltering head blown off next week or whenever. Anyway besides that I find that game as a wake up call to The O line, to Ben, and to the lackluster defenseive effort which we will never know if they gameplanned seriously for it or they just wanted to show a vanilla defense. I seriously hope in these two other weeks that Arians and Ben get their shiit together and Coach Z to come up with some god damn good blocking schemes along with the O line hitting that weight room because we can go against the 32nd ranked rush defense and not get 55 yards because of that blocking.
