OMG Flippy! I love you!
Outside of Denver the AFC is just lame, we've got that coming from us. We are going to be on the back of everyone's minds now. Season done according to all...we have a chance, why not? I mean seriously how many Steelers fans are going to not watch the next game?
I was going to go along with you because I can really see how this could turnaround. But no, I changed my mind.
I just saw where someone said TS are 2-9 in their last 11 regular season games. 2-15 counting the preseason.
But one of those wins was in week 17 vs Cleveland who played their busdriver at QB so they could get a higher draft pick.
It's starting to look more and more like TS are playing this year for a real high draft pick. One more good draft like this years and they are back in business.
Two games out of first and a thousand miles from nowhere. I am reminded of that Jim Carrey moment in a movie where he gets shot down by some girl, but in it he discovers that "So, there;s still a chance" ray of hope. There IS still a chance. God bless Flippy, the Planet needs you ... the Steelers need you. Coach much?
Yeah I'm definitely not ready to bail on this season after seeing the pathetic display of quarterbacking put forth by Baltimore and Cincy. Everyone will catch up to Hoyer now with some film on him. The turnover battle is the key to turning this thing around. I know the source of the giveaways is the crappy O-Line but just being a little more careful with the ball could prevent alot of the woes. Think back to the Titans game, fumble inside the 10. This game, clawing all the way back, fumble inside the 10. Didn't Jones fumble around the 15 vs. the Bears...I was pretty drunk and in the nosebleed seats, but that sounds about right. 3 of the 128 giveaways were within scratching distance of a TD and would've turned all 3 of those games around. This pace can't possibly last all season...its statistically proven!...(sort of...if anyone reads Bill Barnwell columns on Grantland.com...he talks about the randomness of fumble recoveries anyway)
reality says 10-6 when this team gets it together from this point.
