    I know tensions are running high now. But, consider the circumstances:

    -Our all World QB is hurt. A high ankle sprain is not a "minor nuisance" as some make it out to be.
    -Our All Pro Center was out
    -Our starting RB was out
    -Our best pass rusher was severly limited
    -2 of our Pro Bowl D Linemen missed a majority of the game
    -Our starting free safety missed this game

    Some might write this off as "sour grapes" but take a step back and really think about it. When has Brady, Rodgers, or Breez played on a high ankle sprain without their starting Center and performed well? We are so quick to say "well, Denver sucks anyway...we should have beat them." I'm not sure it's that easy. This is the NFL. Grown men playing for pride...talent matters, yes...but nobody gave Denver a chance this game. They took that to heart.

    Changes need to be made to this roster and staff. But don't overlook the effect injuries played on this game. I don't believe another "superior" team could have overcome them. And we almost did.

    This loss sucks. This year was not in the cards for us. Let's see how this organization overcomes this disappointment. If it's anything like the '08 team overcame the '07 disappointment, I like our chances!

    Damn Proud to be a Steelers fan!

    Exactly, Everyone was talking Baltmore or New England before this game was even played. This game scared me the moment the regular season ended. There is no such thing as a sure shot anymore in professional sports...

    Yes, plus you omitted the fact our OC is a brainless idiot, so all things considered, we played pretty well tonight. :swordsman:

    Like the OP said, Injuries had an effect on this game. There's no doubt about it......I truly believe if we have a healthy Ben, we win this game despite how poorly the secondary played.. Too many injuries to the skilled positions = too much to overcome....

    Let's get healthy, look towards the draft, make some needed offseason changes, and make another run at it.......

    We'd be better off if he indeed was brainless. Trouble is he has a brain but it's packed so densely full of wrong thinking that it generates its own gravitational field.

    Yep, Arians was awful tonight with his defensive gameplan leting Tebow throw for an average of 31.6 per completion. Lebeau called a good game though.

    Thanks for this post. Injuries have plaged this team all year. By the 4 quarter there were about 25% starters in the game. Thanks 2011 Steelers for a great year. Thick and Thin, Black and Gold!

    Amen. We don't need wholesale changes. We just need to get healthy, and make a couple tweaks.

    I do believe BA being replaced would assist greatly in our run for #7 and 8, but I'm not going to fight about it.

    We're all Steeler Nation here. Remember that, at the end of the day.

    I agree that injuries play a huge role. Tomlin is so predictable of what he is gonna say. "The standard is the same..." blah blah blah. It's like all coaches and players just refuse to come out and say "yes we are injured and yes our 2nd string is inferior to our 1st..." I mean if they are NOT inferior why are they NOT the 1st string. Pros just seem to talk down to the Joes. I suppose.
