Blessing in disguise
Today's loss was a very tough one to swallow. A lot of people are going to be heartbroken in Steel City for sure. But I want to let you guys look at this loss from different perspective. It was a GOOD loss in my books. I'm a die hard Steelers fan like you all are, but I think this loss was the best thing which could happen to us. Why? Well, there are many reasons for this and I'm going to list them all. First though, I want to ask a simple question. If you had a choice of winning this Superbowl at the cost of Big Ben's and Pouncey's career ending injuries in the process, what would you choose? My answer is -- No thanks.
Considering all the injuries in our beloved team, I look at this game as follows: If my team can't score a figgy in high altitude stadium withtin 2 minutes against 3 loss in a row team , it doesn't belong in the hunt this year. It's as simple as that. If we won today, we'd have put Pouncey, Big Ben and Woodley and many other banged up players to aggrevate their injuries and Big Ben and Pouncey to possibly career ending injuries. I do not want to take that chance. I know it was a heart breaking loss, but please guys, try to look at the bright side. Contrary to 70s team, this team has a chance to get younger and better after winning two trophies. We have young cogs in Ben, Pouncey, Woudley, Hood, Heyward, Wallace, Brown, Sanders, Miller, Worilds, and many others while 70s team were old and gone after their ride. We can add several pieces with the next draft and have a shot at it many more times.
God bless you all and Go Steelers !!!
