Already mentioned: Keenan Lewis, Cortez Allen and even Curtis Brown took their lumps and appeared to brush them off and progress. There's good and bad with Tomlin and Lebeau's hard-on for veterans, but now that all three of these guys got to play, I think we started to see some talent and maturity.

Another silver lining is the possibility that, because of circumstances this year, we will get Mendenhall back on the cheap.

the silver lining for me ?

That its now absolutely necessary - and understood - that many changes need to be made this off-season. Tomlin's likely, for the first time in his young career, feeling a little hot under the collar and "job security" is entering his head for the first time as well. He's finding out that wins "just don't come automatically" because your a Pittsburgh Steeler.
I'm interested in watching those changes unfold.

Hmm! I'm hoping Cleveland comes to town next week and kick their butt; we need some quality players. Maybe Colbert can finally have a solid draft between rounds 3-5 that will give this team some solid depth.

I think the real trick is to stay healthy long enough for the team to gell!

Silver lining, all the whiners on this board will go away soon and the real fans can start looking forward to next season.
