Steelers vs Broncos season ending poem

Thanks so much as always to our friend, SteelersGirlTN7  for posting up her thoughts on the games each week in the form of a poem, in her own unique way.  Here is the final entry of the 2011 season from her! Thanks as always Michele!

 

Wild Card weekend at Sports Authority Field at Mile High
Steelers vs. Broncos – Sunday afternoon was do or die
The Steelers should win – that’s what the experts were saying
Those are just words – games are meant for playing
We’d have to start without Clark, Pouncey or Mendenhall
And Denver deferred so we’d start with the ball
On the first drive Heath got 8 yards and then 33 more
Helping us downfield and to a Shaun Suisham score
Both teams would punt and on Denver’s next turn
Woodley and Hampton leave injured we’d learn
We were soon back in range for one of Suisham’s kicks
It hooked left in time and we’re now up by six
The 2nd quarter started and little did we know
We were about to see the best of Tim Tebow
A long bomb to Decker and he was hurt on the play
An incomplete pass is what the officials would say
On the next play Tebow let another one fly
And then 2 plays later the score was a tie
Keisel was injured and his day would be done
Prater kicked the point after and put the Broncos up by one
On Denver’s next drive Tebow scored for them again
And when it was our turn Carter intercepted Ben
This time we held them to just a field goal
But the Steelers were now in a 11 point hole
Prater put another kick through the upright
If we were going to come back it was going to be a fight
And that’s just what we did as the 3rd quarter began
1st and goal to Wallace and around the right he ran
Fast forward to the 4th and 3 more points by Prater
Followed by another Suisham kick a few minutes later
Woodley recovered McGahee’s fumble on Denver’s next drive
Cotchery made an awesome TD catch to keep us alive
A few mistakes would keep us from a game winning kick
Ben gets sacked as the last 3 seconds of regulation tick
Overtime was over faster than it started
A Mile High Miracle left us broken hearted
Before this game we were the team no one wanted to face
Injuries probably kept us from our rightful place
While this loss was tough and still certainly stings
We can’t wait to see what next season brings
Thank you for the memories from the season of 2011
Everyone get healthy and come back to climb the Stairway to 7
