    Well, that's their problem too if it gets to that point. I'm bummed, I live for football season and that is just the way it is. I could have handled it had this been any game except for the first of the season. To me and all the talk that came from the coach/players this means to me that, the coaches are not aware of their own teams short comings. If they thought this team was ready for the opener they were wrong. Heck, if they thought they, the coaches were ready for the opener they were even more wrong.

    This is nothing new. The sky was falling back in 2002 (actually, it was, cuz the Steeler D could stop no one in the passing game that year) when Rich Gannon shredded the vaunted steeler D for over 400 yards.

    I'm very very worried about my Jets with this upcoming game vs. the Steelers. Although the game you guys played vs. the Broncos was very entertaining, looking at two HOF quarterbacks going at it, I was SORELY hoping you guys would win the game. Playing the Steelers: On the road + home opener + getting players back (Clark, Harrison, Mendenhall?) + Revis may not be 100%, + knowing the Steelers haven't gone 0-2 since 2002 = Me being more frightened than Scooby-Doo confronted with the episode's villain. Still, I want the win...although I don't expect it. Hope it's an exciting game with no one getting hurt.

    Did it occur to anyone that perhaps Denver playing in the same division as KC and Haley bringing his offense from KC actually helped the Donks in their defensive gameplan?
    We had a 2nd yr CB, a replacement safety, a new defensive captain, a new nickel back, a missing Pro Bowl LB all in the first game of the season. My, our expectations are very high....

    actually, yes it did occur to me which is why I predicted we would lose this game. there were so many factors stacked against us, I think we will fare much better at home this Sunday against the Jets.

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    It could have worked in Haley's favor too but, it did not. Your right about all the mishaps we had going for us and I seen a lot of holdoing from the Broncos and especially on their touchdown plays. Suisham also got run into after a fieldgoal attempt and it went un-noticed by the refs. Maybe it did, maybe it didn't but I seem to remember that's a penalty.

    It's ok to be bummed, irritated and the like. What gets old is season after season seeing over reactions to ONE game....sometimes less. People calling for 8-8...calling for Arians to come back, calling for Lebeau's head etc gets old, and certainly doesn't enhance the enjoyment of the game. Now, if a few of y'all want to get your panties in a bunch because I don't want to read a bunch of chicken little posts...welp sorry.

    The fact is this...we are a good team who played a C+ game when we needed to bring at least an A- to win in a hostile enviroment. Lets call it what it is rather than losing our minds. If we go 0-6, then lets revisit all of this...and maybe I'll agree with all the pessimissm. Right now, I see nothing to make me think the Steelers won't make the playoffs...yet again.

    Go root for another team you naysayer you!!! Oh, wait...you do root for another team. Sorry bout that. I would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you pesky kids!
