We'll have to sign up some new depth on defense for next year and have another go at it.


What a novel idea Slash lol.

You'd think the sky just came crashing down.

I look at it this way though, at least there won't be nearly as many overly expectant fans hanging around next year.

News flash: nobody expects to win superbowls every year. We do expect to be able beat the worst teams in the league.

I really thought entering the season that the Steelers would be a better team than last year....with a chance to dominate this season if the o-line could step up their game. Well, the o-line has improved......... but I never realized how much Troy covers up weaknesses elsewhere in the secondary until he went down this season...........or just how the special teams play would degrade. It's just hard for me to fathom how poor the secondary looks right now. The Steelers still excel at stopping the run obviously and I have no worries there. For next year, I hope the Steelers can improve the secondary and get back to their winning ways. The team is not going to go into re-building mode.....they are strong in a lot of areas. Just shore up the secondary and special teams and this team can start winning consistently again.

I was just coming to post the exact same thing but you beat me to it. I am a fan today and I'll be a fan tomorrow when I'll wear my Steeler gear with pride, but I don't think I'm "jumping the bandwagon" when I'm stunned and disappointed that we lost to the Chiefs, Raiders, etc. At this rate, I wouldn't be one bit surprised if we lose to the Browns on Thursday. I wouldn't mind losing so much if we weren't losing to seemingly inferior teams in the last few moments of play - we're better than that, or at least I thought we were.

No one should expect the Steelers to win Super Bowls every year. But I think it's realistic enough to expect them to defend their titles better.

Emotions are high immediately after a loss. Steeler love runs deep within its fandom and disappointment hurts the heart until perspective is regained. Venting is to be expected.

If you don't like it, don't read the threads. You're bright enough to know which threads are whiny in nature -- just move along. Why do people like you feel the need to bait these people? It only extends the thread and creates animosity.

They need to get themselves under control first and not clutter up this board with whiny dreck. In other words, let them vent somewhere else. This place is NOT a sounding board for overly emotional fans. It makes it very difficult for those of us who, while passionate fans in our own right, to participate in any kind of discussion. It's not my or anyone else's fault that they can't keep their emotions in check.

maybe they need to have a forum for venting after a loss....

yes, i am mad we lost, but there is nothing i can do about it, since i wasnt out on the field playing.we just have to move on, and whatever the problem is have faith in coach tomlin that he can get it fixed.

If you'd read my post, you would have seen that nowhere in it did I advocate for venting. I stated that I understood why some people did it, not that I approved or encouraged it.

What I did say was don't respond to it, especially with insults that will only invite further posting by the offending individual, thus increasing the "whine factor" of the thread you're trying to conduct your discussion in.

And if you simply can't resist insulting and engaging them -- do it off the thread in a private message.
