(AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis) It’s no secret that last season was deemed by many as a failure. An 8-8 finish in a year that had lofty expectations was a major disappointment for the players, coaches, ownership and of course the fans. There are many reasons the team underachieved in 2012; one of those reasons was a lack of leadership. Inside the locker room the team will have you believe that wasn’t the case but it’s hard to say otherwise. The Steelers started off strong and basically fell apart once Ben Roethlisberger was injured. A team with quality leadership wouldn’t allow that to happen.
