    This team has been thumped in openers before and rebounded to have successful playoff-bound seasons.

    In the Tomlin era (2011), we got spanked by the Ravens in the opening game 35-7, but finished the season 12-4.

    In the Cowher era (1997), we got spanked by the Cowboys in the opening game 37-7, but finished the season 11-5.

    In the Noll era (1989), we got spanked by the Browns in the opening game 51-0, but finished the season 9-7.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    There you go again, trying to win emotional arguments with factually accurate data. Shame on you, shame on YOU!

    We win so much that losses are inflated and wins are deflated.

    So what we won 12 games. It was those 4 that really showed our incompetence.

    But the only stat that matters is how many Playoff games did we win in those years?
