    This wasn't a game that screamed "W" at you when you looked at it on the schedule, either before the season started or in the lead up this week. No crime in losing it. However, it became a necessary win when several that DID scream W at you became L's earlier on. When you lose ones you should win, you have to steal wins you're not supposed to get, and they didn't do it last night.

    Has any team in the history of the NFL played an away Thursday night game right after an away Sunday game?

    You know what's even sadder?

    Im not convinced they did. Ben was erratic. The D was ineffective giving up 60% conversions on 3rd downs. I'll give them but they persisted. But it wasn't close to 60 minutes of solid effort.

    The D only gave up one touchdown. They tightened up in the red zone every time... the game was lost on special teams. What was Baltimore's average drive start? Seemed Baltimore's kick return unit brought everything out past the 30, and the infamous Jacoby Jones return much further. Every drive we had started at or inside the 20. Their kicker was automatic, 5 for 5 on field goals. Ours - not so much. In an evenly matched game, you've got to do the little things well. We didn't. This seems like something I've been saying about the Steelers for decades. Have we ever been able to cover kicks?

    I f$cking hate moral victories. They lost a critical game they needed to win. And they are in this position because of consistently crappy performance throughout the year including 3 losses to horrible teams. The Steelers have a losing record because as a team they don't appear to mind losing all that much.

    I've been saying that for close to a year now. But I'm a "hater" and Ike stays in amazing shape in the offseason so he must be worth 10 mil/year .... lol
