    Just sayin...

    It doesn't make it any less painful , but the Steelers loses are to teams that are a combined 15-2. Other than the patriots game (where we now know Ben was probably playing injured) we were a play or two away from getting the win with a second year QB getting his first NFL start and a undrafted third string QB.

    I hate the record, but the team is playing hard and fighting every step of the way.

    That's wonderful. They are playing hard. I hear the NFL is awarding a new trophy this year in addition to the Lombardi.

    It's a participation trophy for teams "trying hard" and the Steelers are in serious contention.

    Remember when we actually had SB aspirations?

    Remember when we always made the playoffs?

    Now people are just happy that they're 'playing hard'.

    Yup. Talk about lowering expectations.

    We went from Lombardi trophies to participation trophies.

    I hear the Rooney's are going to create a dedicated display space at Heinz Field for these participation trophies.

    Yep.....but when you ask them what is the one good thing that Tomlin does, they tell you that he wins. Hahahahahahahahahahahaah
    From the 2010-2019 season, (An 9 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    As Tomlin said after the game, “we’re not interested in moral victories”. And I agree with him.

    I am encouraged by the improved play of the defense and the newfound ability to get takeaways. I am also glad the players haven't given up and are not mailing it in. Perhaps they can form a foundation to be a strong contender in the coming years.

    That said, we all know that success in pro sports is about more than trying hard. The Steelers are falling short of success. It has to be turned around.

    One of the things I’ve always loved about being a Steelers fan (about 45 years now) is I’ve never seen the team give up, even in lousy years like the current one. The culture of the team, across the three coaching eras, has never been one where they admit defeat/sucking during the game. And there are many other teams that can’t say that over the years.

    Totally agree. 3 of 4 losses by a total of 9 points. If we had this D the last 2 years we probably have another Lombardi

    No wonder why Washington wants Tomlin. He has an above .800 record for trying hard.
    Unbelievable...lol
