After Dolphins Loss, Ryan Clark Talks Dealing With Defeat
PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) – Steelers safety Ryan Clark spoke with 93.7 The Fan’s Andrew Fillipponi Tuesday about moving on from Sunday’s 34-28 loss against the Dolphins at snowy Heinz Field.
It is tough for passionate players like Clark to compartmentalize feelings and emotions after a tough loss like the one to Miami that may have ended playoff hopes.
“Do we hate losing? We do. But there are other things in life,” Clark said.
Clark did not always have the proper perspective on losses until he got sick.
There was a time when he was younger when Clark had a difficult time dealing with defeat and took losses extremely hard.
Now, after dealing with his sickle cell scare in Denver a few years ago, Clark knows how he needs to work after a loss and not let it affect the rest of his life.
Clark believes that the Steelers didn’t deserve the win because they didn’t make the plays that they were supposed to and let the Dolphins score too many points.
But even with those mistakes, they almost managed to pull out a victory.
“It was a tough one to lose period, but to think that you’ve actually won it only to realize that you didn’t is even harder,” Clark stated.
