    A potential Super Bowl winner thrives under pressure...the Steelers did not

    Yeah. The title pretty much says it all. The Steelers were given an amazing gift from the Chargers last night. All they had to do was to beat the 49ers tonight and for all intents and purposes, they had clinched the one seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. But of course, they could not get it done.

    Let's go back to the historic '05-'06 season. That was a team that without a doubt thrived under the pressure. They won every game that they had to win to get into the playoffs, and every game in the playoffs, obviously, to get to the Super Bowl. This team is nowhere close to that team 6 years ago. You can't go far if you can't win games in crucial situations.

    Not giving up hope yet, but we do have some issues. There is no way if Ben were healthy he throws three picks in a fumble tonight! And it doesnt help not having Harrison and Woodley for most of the game.
    We dont creat turnovers without a pass rush!

    They should not have played him. he hurt the team in a way! He is a great competitor but he was not ready to play. He didn't practice all week and it showed. Defense missed #92 though.
    #56 was MIA?

    Better than GB? That's the team that lit us up in the SB. We have no consistency whatsoever...AFC Champ against NE? I hope you're right

    look last year is over green bay was better last year i just hate all the whiny negativivty when we aren't the one seed everyone talks about the 2005 team well here's a news flash about that team they got lucky twice once cause they played seattle and again when the officials messed up so enough about 2005 not to mention the missed FG in the colts game
    hindsight is 20/20 it's easy to say this and that the fact is once the playoffs start we have as good a chance as anybody . especially if we play as well as we did against the pats

    That was just a magical run and its hard to repeat a run like that.......But you're right......A huge gift from the Chargers and the Steelers just **** the bed tonight......From Ben, Tomlin, BA, LeBeau, the defense....People will bring up the turn overs and yes they were a huge factor....But yet again the defense couldn't stop the 49ers at key times in the game....Just one big joke of a performance tonight....

    Takes some magic to win the Super Bowl, any team in any year. The Steelers have **** the bed in every big game this year.

    that is why I don't see them making that type of run.......They play like crap on the road and havn't shown up in big games...The talent is there......This team is just to banged up and stupid at times....

    I agree that the Steelers this season especially Ben are a much much better home team then they are on the road. That is why it is so critical to win this division and get that bye week so you can at least guarantee yourself one home game and maybe a second like they did last year when the Pats lost. Right now while I wont say it's impossible for the Steelers to go on the road and win 3 weeks in a row at Denver,New England and Baltimore I just dont see them being able to do that this season if thats what it's going to take to get back to the Super Bowl.

    Let's not overreact here...
    I agree that it's just one loss and there is still a lot of football still ahead of us. The Steelers had a big opportunity to put a strangle hold on that top seed in the AFC and in the division and they simply didnot get it done. Gotta put it behind you at this point now and look forward not backward and try to get things done that we can control and that's winning the next 2 weeks against the Rams and Browns and see how the Ravens finish out and hopefully they slip one more time which is definitely possible...

    Remember we only had one offense option - drip and pass. Ben was not going to scramble and keep any play alive. The 49's knew it and we knew it. As a result, it kept our watered down D on the field far longer than normal.

    Ok, there's a reason I said EVERY big game. Was Ben injured in either of the Ravens games? Was he injured in the Texans game? No. The Steelers have yet to beat a good team, besides maybe the Patriots. And the Patriots aren't going anywhere in the playoffs this year with that one sided team.
