We’re now 4 games into a 5-game lull in the schedule. After feeding us 3 high-quality teams to begin the year, the NFL then served us 5 patsies. We already lost to 3 of them (Chargers, Redskins, Bills). Next up is Pittsburgh and the Jets.
The Steelers looked like a sure thing at the beginning of the year. But now with a rookie QB in there, anything goes, and the Steelers are not the team they once were. We can beat the Steelers. What we cannot beat, however, are the refs. The Steelers have gotten all the calls for decades.
Anyone remember the Super Bowl vs. the Seahawks?
Anyone remember this:
Quick summary: Big Ben fumbled at the one. Dolphins recovered in end zone. Official ruling: Steeler touchdown. Insanely unfair.
Steeler fans whine over the years like no one else. They chuckle when you point out all the calls they get. There’s some odd agreement between the Rooney family and the NFL going back decades. Will it show up again tonight?
I’ll have the chat room open, but I have a prior engagement and may not be on too much. I’ll try.
If we don’t win tonight, then next week (home game vs. Gase) is our best shot until the Bengals on Dec. 22.
