Time to just win some football games.
I think part of the problem this year has been our passion and desire to be and to be recognized as the dominant team in football. The team that wins because we ARE the PITTSBURGH STEELERS. Gadmmint.
What made last night's game so much fun and what many have called the best game of the year, was that we were down on the ground underdogs, looking for every inch of advantage just to stay competitive. Success was a delight instead of only expected. You feel joy at success and when it gets tough, you try a little harder because you've got a hill to climb.
It's not that way when you are on top of the hill, looking down.
It is now crystal clear Steelers are not elite or dominant. We are down in the muck with the rest of the 'middle of the pack' types. It is now time to just win some football games, whatever it takes, get down and dirty, just find a way to win.
The gloss of Stairway to Seven is gone. Just win a game. This week's game.
