Mularkey's System Lives Up to
Its Name... and Then Some!
Article by McMillen & Wife
Before I discuss today's loss to Jacksonville (something I frankly have little desire to relive), I wanna offer up a little trivia designed to hearten Steelers fans:
1) In the opening game of the 1995 season, what lowly expansion franchise beat the SNOT out of the heavily favored Steelers?
Answer: The Jacksonville Jaguars.
2) When was the last time the Steelers went to the Super Bowl?
Granted, I don't think I'll be rushing to PriceLine.com just yet to book my reservations for the Super Bowl, especially considering Mularkey's offense played like... nah, that punchline is just little too obvious to bother with, isn't it? Suffice it to say that for this game at least, we couldn't possibly have a more appropriately named offensive coordinator. Nonetheless, as the trivia above proves, one game does not a season make. And while I suspect that anyone filling their heads with visions of another Lombardi Trophy for the Rooney's THIS year might also believe Elvis is still alive, I'm cautiously optimistic that a respectable run at the playoffs this season remains a very real possiblity, tough schedule and all...
