Poll: What's your definition of a successful season


As Stiller fans we have the great benefit of having the best team in history since the real NFL has existed. More championships, more division titles, more AFC championships, basically more everything in history. Yes, we're awesome. We know it.

 

And it kinda affects your judgment when it comes to looking at a season. Obviously we hope for Super Bowls every year. Some teams can't even HOPE for that. We want them and can get them, it's realistic. For teams like Detroit, before this season they only hoped to go 8-8. Hoped, to go 8-8. That was their dream.

However hopes and dreams aren't reality. And what I find to be an acceptable season is different from what I hope for. Obviously you can't win the SB every year. So what has to happen for you to be satisfied with the year? So I have decided to poll the nation. What's your definition of a successful season? Not necessarily what you WANT every year, but what you'll take and accept and be happy about.

For me, it's winning one playoff game. That's my mark. We have to do that or I'm not happy with the year. The division crown is a close second, but I would still prefer a playoff game win over a division title. For me playoff wins are the most important thing. They're the most exciting. Division champs are great and usually go hand in hand with playoff wins, but I need that one win. A division championship followed by a one and done would be terrible to me. A wasted opportunity. Whereas a wild card winning a playoff game is a pleasant surprise and it is an achievement.

 

So that's my take on it. I've been a Steeler Disciple since 2004 and I can honestly say that 2006 2007 and 2009 were the only seasons I was disappointed with. Even though we lost in the playoffs in 2004 and 2010, I was still really happy with the playoff performance to that point and the run.


Speak up, I wanna know what you guys think.
