I was doing a little reflecting on the season so far today and I remember the talk after we beat the bungles on the thursday before thanksgiving. yeah we were 8-3 but looking at the toughest part of our schedule. NE, Dallas, B'more and Tenn. I remember all the chat about what we needed to do. Heck, I posted the following back on Nov 23rd regarding who to root for in the Jets/titans game:
absolutely and well done. yep, i'd love the #1 seed but that's like betting the trifecta. great if it pays off, but not likely at all. I think 11 wins gets the bye. The titans won't lose out and 3 wins in the next five will be a challenge for us. Our competition is not the Titans now, it's the jets and the ravens. let's hope favre throws 5 picks.
I think the majority of us hoped we could split those 4 games at 2-2 which would take us to 10-5 and then all we would need to do was beat the stains in the last week to secure the north and possibly get the bye.
to think that we would win the first 3 out of 4 and could possibly sweep all of them to take the #1 seed is incredible. that with 2 weeks to go in the season we can actually relax a bit knowing we have the North, the bye week and no worse than the #2 seed - is awesome. yeah, some close exciting games but this really has been a fantastic 3 weeks.
I just LOVE being a Steelers fan........
