The praise of the regular season is great, but at least for franchises that maintain the highest standards, it’s understood that only one number is important in the NFL, and that’s the number of championship trophies. You are exhibiting.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are exhibiting more Lombardi Trophy than anyone else in the NFL, and the New England Patriots are the only team to have at least the same number of teams and couldn’t compete in this postseason. did. Both the Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers had only one less of the two franchises.
This regular season, the Steelers were 11-0, the last undefeated team for several weeks. They lost three games in a row and lost four of the last five games, including the finale where many starters were absent in the Cleveland Browns fighting for victory. In a scenario that ends an 18-year playoff drought.
Regardless of how they got there, the Steelers believe they are in the postseason and very capable of competing for the championship. The fact that they lost their undefeated season and slid at the end of the regular season is not what they are worried about now that they are here.
“We didn’t want to be undefeated. That was never the goal,” rookie wide receiver Chase Claypool told SiriusXM Radio yesterday. “No one has talked about being undefeated. I just wanted to win the Super Bowl. As long as I’m in the playoffs, playing good football and having a chance to win the Super Bowl, 11-5? It doesn’t matter if it’s 10-6, that’s the only thing that matters. “
“You can win the Super Bowl 9-7 or whatever Washington’s record is, and that doesn’t matter,” he continued. “If you don’t win the Super Bowl, 16-0 doesn’t matter. If you win the Super Bowl, 10-6 doesn’t matter.”
Does anyone care about how the Steelers 2005 team participated in the playoffs or the 2008 team? In general, this is not the case. Their path to the postseason is a footnote and the subject of a trivia quiz. Importantly, in February they put a sticky fingerprint on the entire trophy.
And their hearts are there for the 2020 postseason. What happened in the last month is nothing important, more important than what happened in September or October. The only thing that happens is what they do next. Everything will be reset.
