But you can bet Steelers cornerback Dewayne Washington has spent an entire offseason looking forward to playing the Tennessee Titans Sunday at Heinz Field.
It was Washington, you'll remember, who was the goat in the
Steelers' season-ending playoff loss last season in Nashville,
first giving up a long pass in overtime to Justin McCareins, then
being penalized for running into placekicker Joe Nedney on a
failed field goal attempt, giving the Titans a second chance to
win the game.
Washington will deny that he feels a need to exact some form of
retribution when asked about it by reporters, but you can bet he
feels like he owes the Titans something.
And you can bet the Steelers feel like they owe Tennessee
something after being beaten by the Titans twice last season.
The loss that ends your season is one you don't usually forget
and there is little chance the Steelers have forgotten that 34-31
overtime loss to Tennessee.
Revenge is sweet
