Default The silver lining to 2009

The Steelers finished the season with a three-game winning streak. They say that the momentum you establish at the end of a season can carry into the next season, whether it be the playoffs or the next regular season. We'll be back in 2010.

And the cloud to that lining is that it might have saved Ariens.

I like the way you think Gnutella! Learning from mistakes, healing our wounds and formulating a plan while practicing will only make them stronger.

Very good post - I like your positive thinking!

I don't believe Arians job was ever in jeopardy.

My sentiments exactly! Winning those last three games means we probably have to stomach another season of Arians' crap.

a season like this gives an intelligent Staff & front Office glimpses into their team's weaknesses

* 2nd time in 4 years that a defending SB Champion can't maintain intensity to make watered-down playoff format

* despite winning it all last year, Roethlisberger can't keep getting hit so-often, or it may severely shorten his career in this League

* injuries, not-only to Polamalu, decimated the defense, the mainstay of this team, and adequate back-ups are needed

* kick-coverage needs to be adressed, so we aren't giving-up field position so-often

all is not-lost, if these needs are taken care of

Yes that can be the building blocks for next year. While I wanted to see us in the playoffs I am hopeful that next year a lot of the weaknesses that were exposed this season will be fixed.

Gnutella I like your thinking! And while I'm not a BA fan. How is it his fault our defense collapses in the 4th quarter for most of the year? Even the games we have won were nail biters because our normal bend don't break defense was giving up far to many points in the last 15 minutes.
