Wouldn’t taking down the Christmas tree be a better way to spend Sunday afternoon than watching the Steelers?
Steelers fans did not get all they wanted for Christmas, because the Steelers won’t be in the playoffs this season. The Steelers’ season finale Sunday against the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field will be the first game in six years the Steelers play without any chance of making the playoffs.

The Steelers haven’t played a game this empty of meaning since 2003, the year before Ben Roethlisberger arrived.
So what’s the point of watching Sunday?
Well, in 2003 a rookie named Troy Polamalu loo...
