Can anger push the Steelers back into the postseason in 2013? That’s a great question, and one that will have to be explored by a team that is coming off a year in which 8-8 was a setback.
Linebacker Larry Foote is one player that isn’t taking not making the NFL’s second season lightly, and says it will help the Steelers re-find and re-focus for this next year.
“We’re pissed off we didn’t make the playoffs,” Foote told GoBlueWolverine.com. “On top of that, our rival won the Super Bowl. I know guys are taking it personally. It’s just a whole different mindset to the offseason. I know guys are ready to get back where we need to be.”
While the mindset may be different, the talent this team has is in question, and if they don’t find some answers in camp and the preseason, making the postseason may be tough again indeed.
