Steelers are soft mentally. They couldn't show up in the must win or over the last 6 weeks. I will not EVER root for a loss. But I have less confidence this week than any of the "easy win" games all season. They showed me one game of heart against the Ravens.

If the Steelers can't make the playoffs, then be the best team that didn't. Be the team that all the others are glad they don't have to face again. Most of all, end the year with a win against a traditional division foe.
My silliness is lost in these difficult times. Just saying we're usually certain the Pirates are out of playoff contention by midseason.
Again, I'm not rooting against the team. I just don't see any relevance between winning or losing. It's not going to matter either way. I just want to see players step up and show some resolve. I want to see some young guys desperate to win a starting spot.
