    Re: How's Everyone's Day Going?

    Now that its the day after Im actually glad we lost. There is no way we were going to beat NE or Baltimore let alone both. Especially with the injuries we have. Id much rather lose to Denver than either NE or Bal. At least we were all spared seeing Harbaugh catch another gatorade bath at our expense.

    Re: How's Everyone's Day Going?

    Planned on spending the day home watching ESPN, NFLN all day, but of course that was before we lost..... So instead, I'm getting caught up around here after the holidays and dealing with the tornados that seemed to have hit my kids' rooms.

    I knew if we didn't get a first round bye it would be hard to go all the way. If they would have pulled it out last night, an even harder loss would have been headed our way against the Pats*.

    Frankly, the way they played at times this year, it's a wonder they finished 12 - 4 with a chance at homefield throughout.

    I do think the team they field next year will be a good bit different from the one that lost last night. I can also see a lot of older vets getting cut because it's time to move on and get younger. I think LeBeau will be back and I'm okay with that. I do think BA will be gone. Whether he 'retires' or is asked to leave, my gut just tells me he's done. Ben won't be happy, but will become a better QB because of it.

    Just hoping now that atleast a couple of the Steelers up for HOF, make it.

    Re: How's Everyone's Day Going?

    I'm not going to over react today.
    We have alot of draft needs.
    And the youth movement is not ready. They better get ready in the offseason cause we will likely lose half of the geezer squad of Farrior, ASmith, Ward, Hampton, Keisel and Hoke. Not to mention a few others climbing the age ladder. A DL of Hood, McClendon and Heywood is not ready.

    -We need a young safety to come in and be a good backup and eventually replace Clark or Troy in the next 3 years.
    -We need another NT. Even if McClendon is starter material, which I doubt he is. He's a good rotation or backup though for years.
    -We need several OL. But you can't wholesale change that as easy, only 1 upgrade per draft if you are lucky.
    -Another CB to develop but all of a sudden not a disaster compared to other spots. Ike couldn't handle Thomas, but in the future, others may fall into a similar fate when covering him. He's gonna be a beast.
    -ILB, obviously, Farrior is close to the end.
    We don't have enough draft picks.

    Positives for future:
    -Sanders played well and in crunch time didn't fade. That bodes will for WR. We need to draft zero WRs this draft.
    -Ike Redman showed he CAN carry the load. He was beastlike again. It will be interesting what we do there.
    Can Redman, Clay, Batch and Dwyer handle the load until midseason when one is dumped for Mendenhall off the pup-list. I think they'll have to.
    I'll have to rewatch the DL tape to see if the DL are all developing. They BETTER be cause we can spend more picks on the DL except another NT or late round ends in 2013.

    I hung a few new Steelers things in my office today. I'm still bummed but Philly fans have actually been nice for a change. Despite the loss, most have said they wish they were us with our success. I guess things could be worse....we could be Eagles fans.

    I'm still a bit peeved but I'm actually relieve we lost. This team just didn't have it this time around. I think we've gotten a bit complacent through the success we've had. In the back of my mind, I don't feel like this team really wanted to compete for a championship. No one can convince me that we couldn't have gotten in field goal range to kick that winning field goal if we really wanted it.......

    Any year we dont make it deep into the playoffs I consider it a failure.
    This year wasnt pleasurable, we played down to some very bad teams we had many injuries and our offense was disgusting at times.
    We couldnt put games away and we lost the division with 10 seconds left against the Ravens.
    The best thing that could come out of this season would be Arians being fired or force retired,an O-line revamp with smart lineman and Ben keeping his big FN mouth shut and letting the front office do its job.

    I think I would be more depressed if I have to watch Ben and Arians yucking it up another season, bragging about how good this offense can be while they continue to struggle to put 14 points on the board. This was the most complete offense I have seen, talent wise. And to see it go to waste week after week was unforgivable........

    Fair weather fans need not apply.

    I'm wearing a Crosby sweatshirt today. But it's black and gold.

    Re: How's Everyone's Day Going?

    I got past this surprisingly quickly. I entered the playoffs with the mindset that we are not a SB contender. As a Steelers fan I have high expectations, and anything short of a SB run is below standard for us. Since I did not expect that run, it works out the same way anyhow.

    The most fun I've had is in explaining these lofty standards to fans of lesser teams.
