Looking Backwards and Forwards
The team’s lack of success has been extremely taunting as we continue to have one of the most explosive and talented rosters in the league and keep coming up short. Here are our results since 2011:
"2011 – Lost to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos in the Wild Card 2012 – 8-8 Season 2013 – 8-8 Season 2014 – Lost Wild Card to Ravens 2015 – Lost Divisional to Broncos 2016 – Lost AFC Championship to Patriots 2017 – Lost to Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars at Heinz Field in the Divisional Round 2018 – 9-6-1 Season"
Is this a joke? One shot at a conference championship over the past 8 years? It’s unbelievable considering the talent we have had on this team. We continuously see year after year that regardless of what group of studs we have on the field the decisions on the sideline come back to bite us. Things like converted 3rd and 20’s and Chris Hogan being the most wide open wide receiver in 2018 are things that can be avoided on the practice field. Going for it on fourth down with a fake punt instead of our offense adds to the list.
All Steelers fans want is another Super Bowl, being on the cusp of a championship is the most heartbreaking thing in the world. We are always in the mix but never come out on top and this is why it hurts the most to be a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. At least as a fan of the Browns you knew what to expect.
The Steelers are now facing a predicament. Ben is only getting older, and the rest of the AFC North is getting younger. The Browns and Ravens have their quarterbacks of the future, and the division is getting scary. So, as much as I can rant, the Steelers aren’t in the playoffs. All fans should expect a turbulent offseason because something needs to be done.
