    Default We are right on target......

    with my formula for a successful season.....divide the season into 4 quarters.....go 3-1 in each....finish 12-4. The pieces are falling into place. How can you say they are not when...we lose...but the Ravens win...and we clinch a playoff spot.

    2010 Pittsburgh Steelers: An In-Depth Look at Their Losses

    By Bill Kostkas (Contributor) on December 21, 2010




    It seems that after every time the Steelers lose on Sunday, people seem like they want to take a swan dive off of the Smithfield Street bridge.

    I get upset when they lose as well, but if you take a good look at the teams they have lost to, you can see that the situation really isn't that bad.

    Aside from the 17-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4, all three of the Steelers' other losses have come to teams that were coming off bad losses the week before. So, the Steelers were somewhat unlucky.

    What a surprise knowing how the season has gone for this team.

    The next loss was on Halloween night in Week 8 to the New Orleans Saints, who had fallen to the Cleveland Browns the week prior 30-17. The Saints are the defending champions, and were obviously upset after performing so badly against what we have referred to as a bad team for so many years in this town.

    Don't forget that it was Halloween in New Orleans, where all kinds of voodoo stuff happens. Skip Bayless even said that the 1979 Steelers would have lost that game.

    In Week 10, the Steelers were bludgeoned and embarrassed by the New England Patriots. The week before, the Patriots lost to the Browns as well 34-14. They responded by making the Steelers look like a Pop Warner team.

    They were obviously upset about losing to Cleveland, but when is Tom Brady not upset about something? He gets upset when you graze his helmet and there isn't a flag. Meanwhile Ben Roethlisberger gets mangled, and takes every bit of it.

    Then we have the New York Jets who were coming off ugly losses in both Week 13 to New England (45-3) and in Week 14 to the Miami Dolphins (10-6).

    They came into Heinz Field having lost a foothold on the AFC's top seed in the playoffs, the first slot in the AFC East and hadn't scored an offensive touchdown since Thanksgiving.

    They were a desperate team.

    If you want to side with me, you can agree that at least those three aren't really bad losses.

    Not to worry, friends.

    It's been more like we've been the target. After watching the Bears/Viking game I really have to say, " our defense is being singled out or given less tolerence.

    Just for instance, Brian Urlacker puts a hit on the QB or receiver, can't really remember now but, the annoucers are going on about the hit and this and that. The freakin hit was helmet to helmet and Brian gets praise.

    Back to the real identity of this thread I, was already to be happy with this current win/loss record that we currently have before, the season started. (still happy) I think we can beat any team with the right game plan or player desire. Any team except the Patricheats. Our coaches would actually need to earn their paychecks for that game and stop being so predictable to Bellicheat.

    This is my favorite big hit that Urlacher has been involved with.

    Awesome! This was the first game I had been to in 3 years, and I was sitting in the end zone right on top of this play. I loved it!
