On a night when all the odds were seemingly against the Pittsburgh Steelers, they hung tough with the New England Patriots. With the absence of several players, a strange headset malfunction on the Steelers' sideline and numerous squandered opportunities, the Steelers return to Pittsburgh 0-1 and still searching for their first victory of 2015.
That victory will have to wait until next Sunday when the Steelers host the San Francisco 49ers at Heinz Field. However, after the Thursday night loss to New England, several Steelers took to social media to vent about the game. See what the current, and some former, players had to say.

Silver lining: Offense put up some great numbers, D Will ran very well, and despite some miscues defense did ok v. Run, 2ndary needs help— Max Starks IV (@maxstarks78) September 11, 2015
