I didn't feel much on Sunday.

Now, I kinda have the sick feeling in my gut. I could be ordering my 3rd Commemorative Edition Heinz ketchup bottle, and I can't. And it eats inside.

Losing blows...

It always sucks to lose, but like you said, we've been lucky enough to witness 2 SB wins in the past 6 years. There are fans who don't even get to witness one in a lifetime.

We'll be back, I'm not worried.
I feel pretty much the same way.

I guess it boils down to the fact that I really believe that we're always going to be a contender and will always have the opportunity to get to the SB and we have 40 years worth of success to justify that feeling.

So if we don't win one, we'll win another.

And like many others here, losing to to a quality opponent helped to soften the blow.

(still hurts though)

I went into this game expecting to lose, so when it happened it wasn't as much of a let down.

With 3 TOs and still having a chance to win the game in the 4th, I guess I underestimated the Steelers. The game was really a lot closer than it seems.

Was not nearly as bad as O'donnells loss to the Cowgirls.

^This. It's very comforting into knowing that we STILL have the team together to contend for another 4 or so years. I think we will CERTAINLY be back in the big dance sooner than anyone else could expect. I'm actually taking comfort coming in and actually talking about it to you guys. However, I will NOT watch replays. Probably EVER.

With that said, I still feel really shitty about this one. Kind of have that pressure on my chest into thinking our 7th title was RIGHT on our lap following one HELLUVA football season. This season sure was fun and the comeback against Baltimore in the Divisional Round was magic.

It hit me about 4 hours after the game and I teared up a bit. However, that next day was just so damn painful. I still have that "sad" feeling but it's slowly going away. I'm almost ready for Latrobe!

Wasn't devastated by any means. Saddened that this was all I wanted for a b-day gift since my b-day was the same day, but in the end, as long as the Patriots or Ravens didn't get it, I'm happy.Only thing I did not want to occur was a boring Super Bowl. Both of these teams are fun to watch, and I simply was hoping that there wouldn't be a blowout. Could have become that had their WRs made some catches, I just wanted it to be close and a good watch.

^ this.

Couldn't have put it better myself.

In 96 I was devastated because I hated the Cowboys and was too young to remember the 70's super bowls, even though I was alive.

it's wasn't as bad as losing the AFCCG to the Pats in 2004. that was such a fun season and that loss really hurt. we made up for it the year later, but it sure sucked at the time.

here's what is bugging me.. this team had a chance to win 3 Super Bowl in 6 years.. that would have been something really special.. Ward was having a good game.. if he makes another couple key catches on that final drive and maybe catches the winning TD, he's the MVP again and stamps his ticket to Canton as one of the most clutch receivers of all-time. a game winning drive led by Ben and he is in the HOF. i really wanted to see the guys receive the trophy from Goodell after all the shit he caused this season. it's still a ****ing bummer.

Yes, you are right on both points. I knew we had the ability to pull off that 2 minute drive, but for some reason this time I just didn't "feel it".
