Steelers v. Baltimore: The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly

During the thirteen months that Pittsburgh Steelers Fanatic has been up-and-running I have always been able to find something positive say about the team's performance, even in the aftermath of the most disappointing losses.

Sunday's game versus Baltimore proves that there is a first time for everything.

The Good
Now before I get off an a rant here the Baltimore Ravens have to be congratulated for playing an absolutely perfect football game. Their defensive scheme was perfect and the players executed it flawlessly. And as utterly hateable as Brian Billick is, he has transformed his offensive unit into an effective, power football unit.

The Bad
It's not as if the Steelers have ever gone undefeated in a season, so it isn't the loss that has left the Steelers and their fans so dispirited, but the way they lost.

Never in the game, never showing any spark of life -- some might argue that this team appears to have quit on their season, and their coach.

Anyway, it was all bad and for the very first time since starting this blog I simply don't want to dwell on the game any longer.
