Default Positive things today....

1. Very important. We got our run game going today. Not great, but going.

2. Timmons had a decent game.

3. It took a lot of mistakes to have the Bears beat us. Like last year, its a game we should have won. Much better than actually being outplayed.

4. It was an OUT OF CONFERENCE game. So if we are tied with anyone at the end of the season for either home field advantage, or a wildcard spot, this loss won't hurt us.

5. Our D starting hitting again today. We seemed to be missing that last week.

6. Our line had points where they looked REAL good today. They are a still a work in progress. But some progress can be seen.

This game reminded me of the 2006 team.

Clicking on all cylinders and lose the game due to missed opportunities.

Screw the running game - it's still a L.

Stupid Ratbirds take advantage of a braindead Chargers team. Their defense made the stop.

Our defense looked weak and pitiful against the pass. Gave up HUGE drives.

There is nothing worth watching again - I deleted that crap.

My positives are the O-line and the run game looked better. IMO Bring on the BUNGLES

So with all due respect, why come into a thread that says POSITIVES... and spew that?

Sorry, Preach. I can't take anything positive from this. We lost. Period.

If we lose to the Bengals next week and Willie and Mendy go over 200 combined, it would still be an L. I don't care about the running game and the O-Line, I care about winning. If the Steelers don't win, then the week is a bust. No Moral Victories. Those are only for losers. Like the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Pirates' of the world.

This embarrassing game is over with. On to the Bengals.

I was very happy to see we started to get a run game going today and I thought we should have stuck with it, I thought it seemed like we were afraid to commit to it.

Because it's the truth?

There is noting positive about a loss, we aren't Browns fans who need a "moral victory " or a "competitive loss'.

Steellers had the game and the kicker BLEW it.

Positives? Getting reed at a cheaper price next year

And the oline was great for most of the game. Run blocking is still iffy, but ben had a lot of time back there
