The Yancey Thigpen redemption game: What was Mike Tomlin thinking?

It was Christmas Eve, 1995, and the Pittsburgh Steelers were in Green Bay and positioned on the five-yard line with a chance to win the game with 10 seconds to play.

It was at that point when an 11-year-old Adam Gretz sat in his living room and watched his favorite player at the time, Yancey Thigpen (a player that had caught more passes that season than any other wide receiver in Steelers history up until that point), let a perfectly thrown Neil O’Donnell pass slip through his hands in the corner of the end zone, giving the Packers a 24-19 win.

Week 16 Game Thread: Steelers vs. Packers

The Steelers are still in, even if just barely.

So there’s that.

In related news, does anybody think LaMarr Woodley shouldn’t be cut in the offseason, even if that means waiting till June 1 for salary-cap reasons?

Week 14 Game Thread: Dolphins vs. Steelers

Yes, there’s still a chance at the postseason.

(FYI: We’ve been working through some issues with the site that hosts SL, so things have been a little wonky the last week or so. We’re hoping to iron all that out in the next few days. Feel free to blame Mike Tomlin since he’s responsible for everything else that has happened since Thanksgiving.)

Pre-Thanksgiving Steelers Lounge Podcast Transcript

(The video has nothing to do with nothing but it’s awesomeness transcends sports. Consider this my gift to you.)

Good news: As promised, we recorded a podcast this morning.

Bad news: Because I’m an idiot, I somehow didn’t hit the BIG RED RECORD BUTTON (for the second time this season, by the way). So, yeah, that was awesome.

More good news: As Gretz pointed out after I notified him that I had wasted 45 minutes of his life, “This probably means the Steelers will win.” The logic: JJ missed the podcast prior to the Lions game and … win. There wasn’t a podcast last week because of scheduling conflicts and … win.
