In our most recent podcast, The Blitz, one of the points brought up by site owner Marc was how the fans are likely not to be happy with the Steelers this weekend no matter what happens in the final game of the season against the Browns. Normally, and obviously, any win is a good thing in the NFL. Even when nothing is at stake, playoff wise, you want to win every game possible. Even if it’s just to finish off a sub par season on a high note, you take every win you can get. For fans though, this final game is likely to have a different feel than most weeks. Should the Steelers win in a blowout, fans will not be pleased because we will wonder where the offense was all year long. Why did they wait till now to put a team away, why were they finally able to do what we were looking forward to them doing all season long? Even if it is against the Browns, who are as beat up as the Steelers are, and having a worse season overall, it won’t make anyone feel any better. If the Steelers just barely squeak by the Browns, in similar fashion to their other wins, we’ll say that they should have been able to put an inferior team away sooner. Why do they constantly let teams hang around that they should be able to handle? Are they possibly not as good a team as we all think they are? What if the Browns beat the Steelers? Oh man will the Twittersphere erupt then! How in the world could the lowly Browns sweep the Steelers? How far has the team fallen to finish just 3-3 in the division and allow Cleveland to spend the entire offseason knowing they were able to best the Steelers? This season has been a huge disappointment in so many respects for the Steelers and of course for the fans. Such high hopes were felt when the season started; a new offense, more experienced receivers, young new faces on the line, etc. There’s plenty of time to explore what really happened at each position and with the coaches but for now with only 1 game left we can hope for a strong ending to the season. Or would you rather see them lose in week 17 and get a better draft pick? It’s true, we fans won’t be happy no matter what the outcome.
