Thanks, Bengals, for losing Thursday night. That makes the Steelers’ showing in Oakland even harder to take … and on that note, welcome to another Steelers Lounge Podcast!
Seriously though, can we all agree that the 2013 Steelers aren’t going anywhere? Of course, that’ll mean they’ll beat the Pats before the bottom falls out again. Whatever, we talk about what happened in Oakland, take a long look at all that’s wrong with this team (and yes, I finally concede that Todd Haley should enjoy his final two months in Pittsburgh), and hunt for positives in a season that’s largely been a disappointment.
Then we look ahead to Sunday’s game against a pretty bad Pats team. For what it’s worth — and I’d imagine about as much as a 2nd quarter Tomlin challenge — I have the Steelers winning. Bet your life savings accordingly.
Alrighty, talking starts promptly…
