The 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers had everything going for them. A team fighting to win every game after key players got injured, a team willing to put everything on the line to showcase their talent, and a team hungry for a 7th Lombardi Trophy.
The story of the 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers was one for the record books. After countless injuries to star players like Le’Veon Bell, Maurkice Pouncey, Ben Roethlisberger, and Antonio Brown for several games or the entire season, the team needed to overcome adversity and fight in every game; and did just that.
It was the AFC Divisional game against the Denver Broncos, the Steelers needed to win to move on to the AFC Championship game. Now is the time to give it all you got and bring home a victory.
Late in the fourth quarter, backup running back Fitzgerald Toussaint fumbled the football. The momentum gave the Broncos the ability to move down the field and score a game winning touchdown. Fans and teammates were heart broken and star struck.
In a recent interview with Mark Kaboly over at Pittsburgh Tribune- News, Toussaint talked about his playoff fumble and how it doesn’t define him as a player or person.
That (fumble) doesn’t define me as a player nor does it define me as a person. It was difficult situation, but not just for me but for the team because I know how hard they worked before I even got here. I am working to put myself in that position never to do that again.
Here is the play if you want to watch. It’s always hard to watch a play that eventually won the other team the game, but just remember, you have to overcome things in your life and forgive and forget.
If it wasn’t for the great game from Toussaint in the AFC Wild Card matchup, the Steelers would have lost and never made it to the Divisional round.
His fumble did hurt a lot of players and fans but now is the time to see how this young player bounces back and to see if he overcomes this play and does good next season.
