Imagine if Bironas made his two and Reed shanked his WEEK 1


Granted, 1-2 tastes like the worst chicken in the history of chicken but just imagine if the Titans executed on special teams and converted those two missed field goals by a normally very reliable kicker?  This Steeler Nation would REALLY be coming apart at the seams.  You think we've got BIG questions at 1-2?  0-3 would probably have made my head blew off my shoulders.  The silver lining in this if you watch the games, we TOTALLY outplayed Chicago and Cincy on both sides of the ball for the first 27 minutes of the 1st half of each of those games.  Ben is playing very well, the O-Line did a nice job run blocking for the most part (see Kemoeatus's blown assignment on 3rd and goal, that being a glaring exception) the O-Line did a nice job of protecting Ben for the most part and the defense played well when they weren't in the Tampa Two or whatever they call it when they quit blitzing and lay back to let the other team "nickel and dime" them down the field.  I think our positives have far outweighed the negatives, we're just coming up a little short and this team, this team has to come together, gel and "learn how to win."  With that being said, the Steelers have been pretty great over the years in primetime and you can't tell me when they've lost two in a row on the road and come home to lose a 3rd straight.  I think the ship is righted this week and we'll see nothing but steady improvement from this game on moving forward.  I guess I am a pessimist, glass half full kind of guy.  Although it got empty real quick when Palmer converted two 4th downs and the game winning TD with :14 left to go in the game.
