First of all, Steelers fans, don't take this the wrong way. I enjoyed the run to the title last year. The Steelers got hot at the right time, and everything fell into place.  It's moments like that that make sports fun.  They had character; they played hard; they overcame long odds.  Congrats.

Now can we stop gnashing our teeth over their demise this year? 

It was far too optimistic to believe that this season would look more like the last two months of last season than like the first three months.  They never adequately replaced Bettis or Randle El, and they essentially stood pat in free agency. Add into that Big Ben's offseason adventures, and the rumors/uncertainty over Cowher's future, and most of us vastly overrated them coming into the season. Did we really think that January magic would last into September?

So, now that it's clear this is a very different team heading toward a very different finish, can we stop beating to death the, "What's wrong with the Steelers?" question?  What's wrong is a long list, but right at the top is that this is a different team and a different season.
