Despite still sitting bottom of the AFC North with a 1-4 record, Keisel believes that his side can still make something of their campaign.
"We're not going to quit. Obviously, it wasn't the start we wanted, but the men in this locker room believe there's a chance that something great could come out of this if we all work toward it," Keisel told The AP.
"I think getting away [helped], having a bye and everyone looking in the mirror, to see what you can do to help this team win. We have the mindset that we can climb out of this hole together. This was a step in the right direction."
The Steelers will face the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday in an all-AFC North clash.
