Though it was hard to sit there Sunday night, and watch the Green Bay Packers hoist the Lombardi Trophy, after defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers, all should not be dark in Pittsburgh.
Even this cloud has a silver lining.
For starters, the game was decided by six points. That is less than a single touch down. Had the Steelers NOT given up three turn overs, one interception for a touchdown, while not causing ANY, then the outcome would have certainly been different,
There is a very good, solid, core of a team in Pittsburgh that most teams would kill for. As hard as it is to NOT be down right now, the reality is, the Steelers were still the best team in the AFC, and second best in the league.
There are, however, things that the Steelers are going to have to address this off season, that will put them over the top for next year, and beyond.
