I saw a Steelers locker room today that wasn't overly concerned about its loss last Sunday at Baltimore.
Before you fly off the handle about that, realize that this is professional football. These guys can't dwell too long on what happened last week - at least not if they hope to take care of the next task.
Are the Steelers more focused this week following their 35-7 whipping?
But they're not going to allow it to consume them. That's one of the signs of a solid locker room.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.
Included in those losses are some pretty bad ones - 30-14 at New England in 2002, 21-3 at Jacksonville in 2001, 16-0 against Baltimore in 2000, 37-7 to Dallas in 1997, 24-9 at Jacksonville in 1996 and 26-9 against Dallas in 1994.
You get the idea.
When the Steelers lay an egg in the opener, it's usually a pretty big one.

Given the PR saavy the NFL usually shows, putting Levy on Sunday's game makes absolutely no sense.
Somebody in the league office got caught sleeping at the wheel on this one.
