No Crying in Football, People

Okay, folks, get it out of your system. The Steelers are 9-5, not as good as the 2005 team that was 9-5 at this point, and Ben Roethlisberger is basically running for his life every time Bruce Arians calls a pass play.

But you know what, this ain't patty-cake; it's football. And Pittsburgh has gotten its ass kicked two weeks in a row. How Mike Tomlin gets these guys ready for the final two regular season games -- by the way, can we all agree that the Tomlin honeymoon is over? -- will go along way in defining his first year on the job.

If you have any questions, I'll refer you to the sage-like advice offered by HSS' version of Phil McGraw:
The only thing more frustrating than watching the Steelers get run all over at home, in the snow, by a team from Florida, is the mass exodus from the bandwagon.

Steelers fans suck. From the people who didn't show up, to the people who left with 18 minutes of football left in a two possession game, to the people hoping we LOSE THE REST OF OUR GAMES FOR A BETTER DRAFT PICK (Pardon my french, but are you [VERY]serious?)

The Steelers don't suck. You suck.

In happier news, later on Monday I'll post something about a little HSS group project in preparation for the draft. Yeah, I know, it's Week 16 -- there's plenty of time for all that draft stuff. Maybe, but did you see the offensive line against the Jags? Anyway, it could be a completely idiotic idea, or it might make us all rich. I'll let you decide which is more likely.
