End of the Season Rant.

This picture best sums up Steelers fans after this season.

We really watched too many winnable games this season with terrible performances by the Steelers all around, not just bad play by one group. Defense, Offense and Special teams all had their terrible moments throughout the season and that carried over into the post-season.

While it is always disappointing that your team does not win the championship, the Steelers kept things interesting this season. After going through some rebuilding years (don't tell the fans that, it was all Tomlins fault they were not that good). The Steelers have made back to back postseason visits and came out with a win this season after suffering a wildcard exit last season. Despite all the injuries/inconsistent play in the secondary, the Steelers were poised to make a shot at Super Bowl 50. Now we will have to suffer by hearing talk about Brady or Manning in the big game. I kind of want neither of those two teams to go.

For all the Steelers went through this season they are set to make a great run in the final years of Bens NFL career. Yeah it sucked suffering through those mediocre years while the front office rebuilt the offense and the let the aging defense go out on their own terms, but that happens. I mean look at the Browns, do you really want to rotate a head coach every two to three years?? I don't. Rebuilding is a part of football and it doesn't happen over night.

I for one enjoyed the season. Only because they made the playoffs, they don't get in and I have a different tone for everything Steelers.

On to next season, let us just hope they can keep the core people and add additions that will help this team to the Super Bowl next season. At this point, with THIS MUCH TALENT ON THE TEAM. Super Bowl is all I am going to expect next season.

Go Steelers!! End Rant.
