I suspect a big emotional let down happened today after the big emotional win last week and players on a high with Ben returning.

I actually expect us to beat the Cowboys solidly next week
I hear what you're saying. I guess I just hate making concessions to that type of play or attitude. Just because we've rarely been a team that blows out opponents doesn't mean we should be okay with lackluster play, and piss-poor preparation.

But, I will be in front of my TV with my jersey on and rooting for the boys next week as usual.

I'd go OLB or DB.

Just because you pride yourself some Steelers fan that "never gives up hope", a lot of us have a right to be pissed off.

Pittsburgh looked like dogshit today against a team that literally has nothing to play for. Complete pathetic excuse for a game.

If we by some miracle make the playoffs, we are going to get decimated by the like of Denver, Houston, or New England.

I remember a defensive coach (Tim ?) used to make up stories to get his players fired up before the game. ("Did you know that Houshmanzedah called your mom a *****")

Again I don't know what it takes to get up for a game but must be a lot

I agree that you have the right to be pissed off. Heck I'm pissed as today was a great opportunity lost to make ground on he ravens and put distance on the bengals.

But I disagree with your "decimation" expectation. If I were you and truly believe is what you said, I would stop watching football for he rest of the season.

But you will continue to watch because even if you deny it, you watch because you have hope. Still you have every right to be upset today

( and I don't take pride in being just a blind faith-ed fan - I truly believe that we will do well if we make the playoffs)
