Default My Life Feels Empty and Hollow When the Steelers Aren't Playing

Does anyone else feel crappy when the Steelers have their bye week? Especially after a loss I want to get back out there and prove that we're still one of the top teams in the league. I don't like dwelling on unanswered questions, like is the Steelers' pass defense going to improve, are there going to be more 4th quarter meltdowns by the defense?

Yes but at the same time I think it's a good thing since Ben hasn't practiced with the team for a month.. the extra week is going to be crucial for shaking off the rust.

I don't mind so much. Hockey is back on, and like Merchant said, this gives Ben extra time to gel with the offense after not having any contact for a month.

Today I took stock of my life and just began crying uncontrollably. Sometimes you're forced to look at yourself and your life. I hope you had fun shooting with your daughter, though. The Steelers are my family.

my thoughts exactly. bye week couldn't have come at a better time. we all know ben is good but still, 4 weeks off, with no extra time to prepare would have been rough
