It's been a long time since I've felt like that, not since the loss to the Chargers in the AFC Championship. I know the Steelers would've never won the Superbowl with all the injuries and this coaching staff, but losing to an 8-8 team with a QB that has a sub 80 QB rating and was shutdown by the Bills and Chiefs the last two weeks of the season has truly made me embarrassed to be a Steelers fan. At least when we lost to the Chargers I could blame good ole' Neil, but now I have to blame Omar Epps, which seems like a cop out to other sports fans, but they just don't know how miserable of a coach he really is.

I'm going to go to sleep and dream of Tomlin disappearing and Cowher or Fisher becoming the head coach. (yeah yeah, Cowher only won one Superbowl. Coincidentally he won that Superbowl only one year after getting a real quarterback).

We're all pissed off and disgusted right now, but don't lose hope. There are things that can and will change in the coming months. Tomlin, Lebeau, the players, everyone is to blame.

I'm not embarrassed. This team wasn't going to the Super Bowl anyway, so thankfully I get to decompress now. I'm actually relieved. Allow me to count the ways:

1. We can now begin our long-overdue search for a new offensive coordinator.

2. We can look forward to cutting all the dead weight off the roster.

3. All our injured players who are coming back can begin healing for next season.

4. We now know where our draft position is, and can put together a draft board.

The injuries alone made it clear that this team wasn't going to the Super Bowl anyway, so now we can move on and change things that need to be changed for 2012.

Tomlin still hasnt impressed me as a coach. You see more of tomlins draft picks now and there not really stepping up. Timmons has been a huge dissapointment this year. I thought he was really gonna break out.

I thought Kevin Colbert made our draft picks?

He does but it is much easier to blame Tomlin.

If you're embarrassed by losing to Denver , imagine how you'd feel after Tom Brady hung 50 points on this team.

Which he would of!

The team was as unprepared as I've ever seen it! They paid no respect to Tebow throwing the ball at all and it bit them in the ***.

This is what happens after we lose a playoff game? You're "embarassed" to be a Steeler fan? Damn. I'd hate to see what would happen if we didn't make the playoffs at all.

I will NEVER be embarrased to be a STEELERS fan.Granted we lost a game we had no right losing but it does happen . Timmons has had a good season considering what he' been asked to do, he hasn't had the luxury of being given one position to play ,but has been versatile enough to play all 4 lb position and do it well...

A friend of mine works in the local landfill and when something like this happens he always finds some Steelers gear for me. Brand new stuff, Hoody, Big Blanket, Banner. If no one knows what a bandwagon fan is. Well, this pretty much explains it. The stuff I found is brand new. That was in 2010. I wear it proudly. My wife claimed the blanket (steelers logos in reverse both sides) for herself. Most fans down this way however, appear to be genuine hardcore though. I have to remember this is Red Skins country after all.

When Hampton and The Beard went down it looked like the whole defense just folded. Maybe mentally they just couldn't handle any more injuries in the worst year for injuries that I can remember.

Never be embarrassed for your team. Steelers ought to be feelin that way for their somewhat lack of performance. They had their chances. I had that 70% chance feeling that Broncos would knock us out. Maybe the Steelers time is done for championships. We'll see. However, I am hecka proud for what they accomplished this season. Time to enjoy the offseason and see what moves Steelers make.

I expected to lose to the Patriots or Baltimore. They were good teams, but not Denver. That was disgraceful.

What is? A QB who won't be a starter in a couple seasons hanging 300+ yards and 2 TD's on us? Yes, very dramatic.

Indeed Gal, we wear our Steelers pride on our shirt sleeve 365 days a year. Are we angry? You bet! Sad, maybe depressed, concerned? Sure!

Embarrassed, no way, not ever!

I'm still a fan, but today it is embarrassing. I don't recall losing to a worse team or QB in the playoffs for as far back as I personally can remember.

We should have played Dixon, Sylvester, Woirlds, all the youth and thrown the broncos for a curve. We would have been moving a lot quicker on offense. We were hurt, worn out and looked like we knew we couldnt beat the Pats .. The team played a bit defeated looking.. like they seen the future.... and future was not a win.

Other than that. Im wearing number 12 today...

That really might've worked. I don't know how much good Dixon would've done considering how much playing time he's gotten, but you never know. Broncos defense prepared to play against a gimp Roethlisberger that had no mobility and that's exactly what they got.
