Thinking about the state of the team, it seems the current chaos would actually turn out to be very positive for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In times like this, it often happens new leaders will emerge to carry the team forward. This team lost a defensive and offensive captain for the season. This is a prime opportunity for a young player to say "enough is enough" and begin to take those steps to truly lead.

Times of great calamity and confusion have ever been productive of the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace, and the brightest thunderbolt is elicited from the darkest storm.
