Default Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda been 12-2 instead of 7-7

I actually think the only 2 games we legitimately lost were the Bengals game (at home) and the Browns game. In all other losses, the Steelers beat the Steelers.

Loss to Chicago. We SHOULD have won. Up 7 to start 4th quarter. Offense has 2 long drives in 4th quarter but no TDs and Reed misses FGs of 38 and 42 yards. Makes them and we win by 3.

Loss to Bengals (away). We SHOULD have won. Up 13-0 and failed 4th down gave Bengals opportunity for 3 points before half. Pick 6 to start 2nd half. Bengals fake punt leads to TD. Major debacle.

Loss to Bengals (home) We COULD have won. The kickoff return for TD was the differnece. Not a debacle, but one we could have easily won.

Loss to KC. We SHOULD have won. KC kickoff return for TD. Still, we had 17-7 lead on a terrible team. Heath's dropped pass turns into a pick. Ben's 1st and goal INT returned to the PIT 8??? WTF? Major debacle.

Loss to Ravens. We SHOULD have won. 3rd and 22 and then 4th and 5 and then a million missed tackles to give Ravens game tying FG. This with no Troy and no Ben.

Loss to Raiders. We SHOULD have won. Another 1st down Red Zone INT for Ben. O should have put them away early. D was a mess in 4th quarter. Debacle.

Loss to Browns. We COULD have won. We played terrible but still had a chance. 1st down from CLE 43 only down 7 with 2+ minutes left.

Frustrating season. It just shows the margin of error in the NFL is slim. This team that we are all thrashing could VERY EASILY be 12-2 right now...but instead we are 7-7. If just a couple of those games go our way, we would be 9-5 or 10-4. Of course this doesn't factor in the games we won that could have gone the other way...but still. C'mon man!

That's probably true, but by the same token, look at 2008 and see how may games the Steelers could have lost at the last minute.

Sometimes you roll 7 or 11, sometimes you get snake-eyes.

I think his point may be more towards the ugliness on this board toward the team.

Just like in golf, they don't ask how, they just ask how many.

Well, you may have a point there. I will say that I have been posting here for well over a year now, and 99% of the "we suck and we're NOT gonna make the playoffs!" posts are not being made by the posters who are on this site day-after-day, week-after-week, etc.

A long winning or losing streak always brings some certain posters out of the shadows, doesn't it?
