Default The only Bright spot.

At least the Bungles and Ravens lost. So we didn't lose any ground. To bad we didn't gain any. I'm not throwing the towel in yet. I still think we will hit our stride going into the playoffs. Big Ben was rusty. He will come around. Wallace will catch some balls. He can't be that bad. GO STEELERS!

Not giving up until we're eliminated. Frustrated, hell yes, but giving up, hell no.

Agree 100%. That was an absolutely god-awful performance, but this team is not mathematically eliminated. In fact, they are still the sixth seed. I will not give up on this team's chances until they are eliminated.

Yep, and even then I'll be looking forward to spring and the draft. I'm frustrated- pissed even but we still control our own destiny.

I was going to make a post about that...but you beat me to it. So, I'll just post what I wrote as a comment:

Okay, so the Steelers screwed the pooch...but a couple of good things came out this otherwise terrible game. We've learned that Wallace can still catch deep balls, even in the end zone. We've learned that our punting unit has some potential...after booting the longest punt since the 1940's (not that it mattered, mind you) - Suisham's efforts have made him one of our leading scorers, not to mention a reliable kicker. And Ben didn't play a bad game with three TDs and a pick - he was rusty at the start...by the time he'd found his rhythm, it was too late.

BONUS: The Bengals and Ravens lost, so...Pittsburgh's going to hold onto their tenuous 6th seed position. Still...what a let down!

Yeah I know. Though honestly, I'm amazed we only lost by six points in that Browns game. I think we still make the playoffs. It will be an ugly sneak in but I think we make it. And then who knows what happens from there. Not saying that the team doesn't have problems but make the playoffs and anything goes.

I don't care about Wallace's game stats when the game didn't matter anymore. I worry about all the drops that occurred that put the team in the hole the tried to climb out of. 112 & 2 TD looks great on paper, but I watched the first half the game
