Woulda. Coulda. Shoulda.

The three saddest words in the English language.

All are being used in epic proportion.

By Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who believes his team coulda been a contender, coulda done what the Ravens accomplished.

By Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, who believes his teammates shoulda had each other’s backs, instead of twisting in the knives.

And, finally, by Pete Metzelaars who believes that if the Bills woulda had a better QB than Ryan Fitzpatrick, the coaching staff wouldn’t have been fired.


“If you don’t have a dominating defence, you need a winning quarterback in the NFL,” said Metzelaars, the Bills’ former tight ends coach, who was fired along with head coach Chan Gailey. ”Fitz is an average to below-average kind of guy and, unfortunately, he made some bad decisions at the end of games and then didn’t make plays at the ends of other games we had chances to win.”
