In the Big Ben era, this loss ranks pretty low on the “I’m never getting over this” scale, although JJ and Adam feel differently (as I suspect, do you). But in my mind, a confluence of events kicked the Steelers squarely in the gonads — the injuries (starting with Ben and ending with, well, everybody else), Ike Taylor’s Chad Scott impression, Mike Wallace not showing up again (I actually thought he should’ve been benched) — and if we’re being honest, this team as currently constituted had no chance to beat the Pats next week.
Whatever, we talk about all that happened Sunday and take a quick peak ahead to the offseason because changes are a-comin’.
Two more things we discuss that I want to throw out here:
1) What’s the chance Dick LeBeu returns in 2012 (and do you want him back)? [Edit: approximately 47 seconds after I posted this I see that Tomlin said in Monday's presser that he expects LeBeau and Arians back. I fully embrace this news.]
2) Who do you want to see win the Super Bowl. Or more pointedly, who do you want to see lose? For me it’s the Ravens, though some of you have more hatred for the Pats.
Alright, let’s get to the chattin’…
