Going to an NFL game isn’t what it used to be. Stadiums used to be full of fans eagerly watching the on-field action. Cheering for their team. Heckling the refs (and players). Rehashing plays.

With a whirl-wind season that's almost over, and a must-win on Sunday, it's time for a Christmas list version of the Steelers whacky 2013 season. Here's everything that fits underneath the black and gold tree...

Le'Veon Bell scored with 1:28 remaining and rushed for 124 yards, and the Steelers defense made a last-second stand to lead Pittsburgh to a 38-31 road win at Green Bay, keeping the team's faint playoff hopes alive as the season enters the final week.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 275 yards and 3 TDs, but the Steelers defense couldn't come up with a stop when they needed one in the second half and the Dolphins ended Pittsburgh's playoff hopes by beating the Steelers 34-28 at Heinz Field on Sunday, despite some last-play heroics by the home team.

Defensive back Will Allen joined the Steelers in 2010 and played in every game but two over the next three seasons, starting seven in 2012. He departed for Dallas as a free agent in the offseason, but re-joined the team midway through this season and contributed immediately, sealing the team’s Week 11 victory over the Lions with a fourth quarter interception.

After starting the season 0-4, the Steelers’ playoff chances looked dead on arrival. Pittsburgh is steadily rebuilding its confidence with a 5-3 record since mid-October. The team faces some challenging opponents this month.

Tank the rest and draft high. After the Steelers started the 2013 season with four consecutive losses, even the most simplistic armchair quarterback complaint seemed like sound advice.

Ben Roethlisberger led Pittsburgh to two fourth quarter touchdowns, but a last minute two-point conversion attempt fell incomplete and the Ravens beat the Steelers 22-20 in Baltimore Sunday night.

Ben Roethliberger threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Steelers defense forced four turnovers as Pittsburgh blew out Cleveland 27-11 to win a third straight game.

Ben Roethliberger and Antonio Brown out-dueled Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson as the Steelers battled back in the second half to beat the Detroit Lions 37-27 Sunday at Heinz Field.

Pittsburgh's offense went 8-for-17 on third down and dominated in time of possession and the defense didn't give up a touchdown until the final minute in a 23-10 victory for the Steelers over the Buffalo Bills at Heinz Field.

I spent three days late last month visiting 18 high schools across the WPIAL. I drove 533 miles, took hundreds of photographs, shook hands with dozens of coaches, athletic directors and principals and climbed way too many stadium steps. I loved every minute of it, of course.

Bill Cherpak misses the way it used to be. Back in the 80’s, when the current Thomas Jefferson High School coach was a player at Steel Valley, the recruiting process wasn’t publicized. It was low-key compared to the present.

The Mon-Valley has put plenty of athletes on Division 1 football teams over the years, including several who made it to the NFL. There are a few Mon-Valley natives playing D-1 ball this season.
