|You Can't Always Get What You Want...|

The Rolling Stones pretty much said it all.
2009 was a good run.
We Steeler fans want the team to win a Super Bowl every season.
But frankly, if you could will a team to a championship, it wouldn't ever even be a contest.
This season, the Steelers had plenty of downs to go with the ups.
But the bottom line was...it just wasn't enough.
Over the last decade the Steelers went 103-56 (with Big Ben at the helm they went 65-31).
That's almost twice as many good times as bad.
Eight winning seasons, six playoff appearances, four AFC Championship game appearances and two lombardis (in the last 10 seasons).
Not too shabby if you ask me.
So when you look back at the 2009 season and the last decade, try not to cry too much.
This season may be over for the black and gold, but next year's a whole new ball game.
Here's to a stronger and better 2010!
Thank you all for your support this season.
Steve and I very much appreciate your continued patronage in spite of our idiocy (and our overabundance of poor pop culture references and dick jokes).
Full recap to come tomorrow.
For the final time this season, feel free to deposit your initial thoughts in the comments.
