With the Pittsburgh Steelers currently sitting at 6-5 after a tough loss to the Browns this past Sunday, safety Ryan Clark says they’ve been spoiled from all the winning they’ve done over the years.
“You lose one game in Pittsburgh and the sky is falling, it’s just part of the culture,” Clark told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, via NFL.com. “It’s part of winning six Super Bowls, it’s part of being 12-4 three of the last four years. We’re a spoiled bunch and overall we’ve become entitled. But you can’t be entitled, you can’t walk into places and just think because you’re the Pittsburgh Steelers you’re going to win.
“We need to execute and we haven’t been executing. Do we need to win next week? Without a doubt. We could have needed to win next week had we won this game.”
The Steelers’ biggest problem right now is that they don’t have their franchise quarterback. If Ben Roethlisberger can play this week, they’ll at least have a shot at beating the Ravens.
