The thoughts of an anonymous Pittsburgh Steelers fan following Sunday’s game (this is actually a compilation of actual post-Denver carpings/”logic” from the Steelers’ boards):

Harrison can’t get a call
He’s held each time they throw
Suspend him 1 more  @#$* time, Goodell…
We were beaten by Tebow?

Ben played on just 1 ankle
He nearly stole the show
Rub some dirt on yours Markice
We were beaten by Tebow!

Clark’s absence was regrettable
But the right thing as we know
I’d give him one of my spleens
We were beaten by Tebow?

The defense short on takeaways
How open their the win-dow?
If we only played some young guys
We were beaten by Tebow?

Poor coaching or bad players,
Injuries or X’s and O’s
We’ve got a lot of excuses
We were beaten by Tebow?!?

Did you see Coach Tomlin’s presser
He’d do it all again you know
Arians and Dick are back
We were beaten by Tebow?

Big Ben the well dressed QB
At his presser in voice low
Fred Flintstone never looked as good
We were beaten by Tebow?

It doesn’t matter anyway
We’d have lost to the Pats also
A head start on our drinking
We were beaten by Tebow?

The 49ers better lose
A 6th ring for them would blow
How then would we feed the trolls
We were beaten by Tebow?!

The Steelers are in cap hell
20 million over next year’s dough
We wasted it on Timmons
And were beaten by Tebow!

Hines will take a pay cut
Let’s see how low he’ll go
It better be 6 figures
We were beaten by Tebow?

Hampton, BMac, and Rashard
Farrior or Foote to go
A new roster to learn in camp
We were beaten by Tebow?

Next season can’t come soon enough
The Iron City Brew will flow
It may even help me forget
We were knocked out by Tebow
