I'm not worried... AT ALL
Why is everyone acting like the sky is falling? Yes, we lost and it was against Baltimore, but we are 3-1 with Ben coming back next game...
Batch played like such **** today. I am 150% confident that if Ben was playing today it wouldn't have been close. Batch missed so many throws today it was laughable. Not only would Ben have made the majority of the throws Charlie completely missed.
Rashard ran hard as hell today. He's been playing lights out this year without any threat of a passing game.
This game just got me even more excited about Ben's return. Watch out for this team...
Everybody needs to CALM DOWN
Let's put this into perspective, shall we?
THIS IS ONE GAME PEOPLE. It is not the end of the world. I haven't heard this much whimpering since we lost to the Browns last year. Yes, of course it would be awesome to win this game, of course we would like to go up 2 games on the Ravens, of course it would be nice to go 4-0. Unfortunately, we did not, and it is not that huge of a deal. Did any of us think the Steelers would be playing such dominant football the first 3 games without Ben? No. It was a pretty pleasant surprise to me.
I think those first 3 games, Steeler Nation was spoiled. Getting 6 defense turnovers a game is what we had come to expect, and we can't do that. There were bad plays, but come on, it wasn't all bad. Let's not forget we were playing the team that most "experts" were picking to go to the superbowl, with our senior citizen 4th string quarterback, might I add.
So, as a wrap up to this little rant. We all wish we had won this game, but we didn't, and it's not going to be the death of the Steelers. We're going to see the Ravens again WITH our franchise, 2 time superbowl wining quarterback, who is going to hit all of the open receivers that Batch missed today, and hopefully with a little tweeking to our defense. Not a huge deal. Everyone needs to chill.
