Surging Steelers not getting ahead of things

Fernando Velasco expected to see panic after the Pittsburgh Steelers limped through a winless September. Apathy and frustration are supposed to be part of the mix when a team gets off to its worst start in more than 40 years, right? Maybe in most places. But not in Pittsburgh.
