In most cases the injury excuse just seems lame or lazy. You either win or you don't.

Maybe the Steelers could have won a game or two more with a few key healthy players, but they still could have without. It's a teams fault for not executing, with or without a player or players.

It's not common, but you gotta give it up to a team when it does happen.
If they hadn't lost Ben, they probably get into the playoffs and from there you never know.

As for the Ravens, I heard Reed, Ngata, Lewis, and Suggs were all on the field together for the first time this year in the Colts game. That, and Bryant McKinnie, are probably the biggest reasons we are still playing.

I agree with you, but Ravens fans go on ad naseum about how the refs gave us that super bowl. I have said many times, I respect the Ravens team, but many of their fans are just too annoying with the - "refs," "we were actually the better team," and more....

the main problem I have with those excuses are that it comes from their own coach after each time we beat them. I know though, it's tough dealing with fans that only want to use excuses.

Maybe.

But Batch shouldn't have played THAT bad vs. the Browns. And Leftwich probably shouldn't have been left out to throw lame duck passes after his rib injury.

And really, the Steelers probably should have had a young-ish QB capable of stepping in if a Ben injury situation arose.

So, excuses or no excuses, the Steelers have nobody to blame but themselves for not planning and executing.
