Default Anyone else surprised by how little you care about the loss?

Are any of you surprised by how little this Super Bowl loss affected you emotionally? If this had been the first Super Bowl they'd been to since 1996 I would have been pretty upset over the loss. The two recent Super Bowl wins really softened the blow though. I feel lucky to have seen them win one Super Bowl, let alone two. Making it to the Super Bowl this year was just bonus entertainment. (And hey, we beat the Ravens in the playoffs once again, which is almost as much fun as winning the Super Bowl to me.)

A loss is a loss is a loss in the Super Bowl. I felt horrible. Cried a little inside.

I wasn't surprised by how well I took it. I prepared myself early for the loss, and not hating the Packers helped tremendously.

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 am very p*ssed at it. Just go to my thread "Time to talk about the Real Big Ben", they guy who handed the Packers the Lombardi himself.

I will always hate the Packers. It would still suck if we lost to a team that was obviously better but that Packer team was not the better team. They had refs not calling holding on the Pack, but forget that. We had a chance to win and Ben choked big time.

Quit spreading your suck to other threads. Keep it in your own thread.

I think this is what it is for me too. I really have no hate for the Packers. And this was before a lot of their fans visited. And yep we've been very fortunate. I tried telling that to my nine year old brother who was worried about being picked on at school the next day. He was more worried about Ravens and Pats fans than Packer ones so I told him to ask where Ray Lewis and Tom Brady were on Sunday. And I agree we'll be back. Just gotta learn from the mistakes from this year and move on.

Took it better than I expected. My wife eas ready to go visit relatives if they lost, she figured I would be really.really upset. I admit it hurt. But,I've been lucky enough to see the graestest football orginazition in the NFL win six Super Bowls. We as Steeler fans have been truly blessed.

I took it well, and have since.

The only thing sticking with me is that feeling of two minutes left, Ben has the ball, down by 6. That unease, but somewhat feeling that we can do it, disappointment at that I can't get past. Maybe I'm protective of Ben, that people will say he isn't always clutch, when I know he is.

Other than that, I picked the Packers to win it all this year, like Aaron Rodgers, and am still as rabidly in love with all of my Steelers as I always have been. So taken it pretty well.

Not that I wasn't devestated, I was pretty depressed until yesterday evening when I finally moved on to the "acceptance and let's look forward to Pens season and the draft" stage...but I kind of knew deep down inside all week that the Packers would win. No matter how many matchup arguments you could make, they just had that "team of destiny" feeling to them, and we didn't, and you could tell all postseason.

Also, the other two SB victories helped to get over it, it wasn't like this was our first championship appearance in 15 years...in fact I'd go as far as to say that if we had won, it wouldn't really have felt that "special," sure GB is a great team but I feel like it would have been like "yay, another SB" instead of "OMG WE WON," especially since the season itself as wasn't all that "spectacular" (It was a good season no doubt but we didn't really have any great , signature wins aside from the Ravens game and in comparison to, say, 08 it was kind of "meh" to be honest...we overcame adversity, sure, but looking at it from a football perspective it wasn't that memorable in terms of our play.) Looking on the bright side, I think this could do at least some good in the long run, hopefully it motivated our guys even more to go out and win it next year and to redeem themselves with another victory in the near future.
