Close Only Counts In Horseshoes And Hand Grenades...
Written by Cotter

In these types of 'do or die plus get help' scenarios, they always say that all we can control is what we do.

Well, the Steelers had one job today, and they couldn't get it done, even with some extremely unbelievable late game heroics.

On the one hand, it was a pretty tough loss all things considered, but especially how it ended.

On the other hand, it's hard to really feel too bad about this when I think we all honestly knew this wasn't the Steelers year (I'm optimistic, not blind).

[if I had to summarize the season in an image...]

Plenty of great performances will be forgotten because of how this one ended up, which is a shame.

But it's all about winning, and if you can't do that, no amount of individual efforts is really worth much beyond hope for the future and fantasy stats.

Obviously this takes a lot of the luster out of watching Steelers football for the remainder of 2013.

But keep your jersey on, and cheer whatever happens the rest of the way.

Cats up next.

Can't turn your back with the division leader coming to our house on a Sunday night.


Here we go.
