    Turnovers were the difference

    3 turnovers..3 TD's..that's your ballgame. Ben was stellar all year long at not turning the ball over and today those 2 picks especially were just killer. They managed to climb back in it but Mendenhall's fumble was the dagger. You preach it day in and day out from minicamp on. In a game like this there are too many things that have to happen for you to win when you don't kill yourself, let alone when you give the ball away.

    Hard to overcome 21 points off of turnovers, but I liked our chances down by 6. Couldn't ask for anything more considering the inability to hang on to the ball.

    Yep....that and we should've ran the ball a hell of a lot more, despite Mendy's fumble. We could run the ball on GB but we only managed 23 carries. We ran for 126 yards, 5.5 avg!!!

    What hurts is the Steelers could have survived the first two turnovers, but the Mendy funble did it. The proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. I do have to say I like how the Steelers fought, they could have won the game despite all of their mistakes.

    I just look back at that pick 6 as being the difference in the game. The defense didn't get a chance to try and make a play. I don't know what their chances would have been but that one was rough.

    Where
    There ain't no luv for the Steelers 2nite sep a few of hardcore fans I suppose. Pissed as hell but a fan no less. Thank God I don't have to go to work tomorrow that won't be pretty. Should be an interesting rebuild. Can I punch my daughter out(never, just kidding, she probably could kick my *** anyway) she is a gb fan and jinxed this whole thing from the start.

    In shock in Virginia.

    P.S. Thanks for all the fun this past season. The SA staff, contributors and members have given me many fun filled hours of enjoyment.
    Job well done ya all. Time for some NASCAR.

    There has to be a winner and there has to be a loser. Packers made the plays and we didn't. Well we did but it was too late. We'll be back.
