I don't feel excited or celebratory so much as just relieved that monkey's off our back... until the media finds some OTHER stat that to harp on.
True, I won't be a real believer until they win a playoff game, but this is definitely a step in the right direction. Anytime you win at Pittsburgh, you've done good.....and this team NEVER wins at Pittsburgh. Especially when our season is on the line. We have unfinished business, but I was proud today, and I'll admit when I was wrong.....I was wrong after the 4 game losing streak.
