Default Staying Humble

I had to get off the board last night after I started to read all the doom and gloom hateful posts (willie sux) (ben sux) (coaches suck) (defense sux) (kicker sux)

And I had to remember, there have been worse losses.

1984 Lost to the Dolphins in the AFC title game
1994 Lost to the Chargers in the AFC title game
1995 Lost to the Cowboys in the Super Bowl
1997 Lost to the Broncos in the AFC title game
2001 Lost to the Patriots in the AFC title game
2004 Lost to the Patriots in the AFC title game

We've lost plenty of playoff games as well, including to the Jags last year, but those title games are the ones I remember most keenly.

We lost a game yesterday. But we didn't lose one of the above games yesterday.

Refocus. Reload. Prepare. and Kick Some Mother Effing ASSSS!

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!

Good point.

Only one team has had a perfect season, the Dolphins in I think it was 1972.

The Patriots lost last year in the one game they couldn't afford to lose, the Super Bowl.

I don't expect to go undefeated every year. I expect a playoff berth, preferably via a division title.

We got that this year and more, we got a bye week and a home game for the divisional round.

So I totally agree with Dino. It's time to reload and make a run at a record sixth Lombardi Trophy.

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!

AMEN Dino!

What torques me off the most is that so many Steelers "fans" feel that it is a God given right for the Steelers to get to and win the Super Bowl every single season and that is totally unrealistic. I'd love to know what they're smokin'.

Though there are obviously some issues within the O that need addressed before the playoffs, I'm going to do what I've done all season and quite frankly, all of my life - believing in this team and supporting them through thick and thin.

No - I'm not a cheerleader. I'm just a diehard Steelers fan.

Same warts the Giants had last year, the same warts the Colts had on defense the year before, the same warts we had the year we won it all. Those warts?

Once you're in the dance, anything is possible, and we are in the playoffs.

Yea, that 1884 loss was brutal. If I remember correctly, after that loss, the Steelers tried to lure Joe Pa away from Penn State for the first time.

Seriously, your point is well taken.

No, dammit! I'm a Steelers fan, and they owe me a SB win every year, and dammit, if I don't get it, I'm gonna hold my bweath 'til I turn bwue and act like a complete jackass!

I fixed the 1984 loss.

I remember that game. It was one of the first losses I had to deal with as a kid. I was 11 years old then, you always remember those heart breakers. Marino killed us.
