Posted Wednesday December 12, 2012, About: Story behind Mendenhall's suspension
Knew he was a bust and a diva the first game he ever played. Telling all media he is going to be the best back in the league and break all records and destroy the rest of the division. First game got broke, out for season. Thanks for playing Rashard, but we should have kept Willie Parker!
Posted Monday August 27, 2012, About: Shurmur hints at McCoy's fate
As a Steelers fan, I still rooted for McCoy. I still think he is the best option for Cleveland. His best receiver is a kick/punt return specialist, his best running back for the season was barely a second-stringer, he played the best two defenses in football twice (Cincy was in top 10 also for defense). Let him play instead of railroading him. The boy can play. I'm not saying I want the Browns to take the division ever, but it's great football when the whole division is competetive!
Posted Wednesday May 02, 2012, About: The most talented draft class
I see a lot of hatin' on the Steelers D, but they still finished in the top 5 overall and #1 against the pass (which is probably a first). Experience can trump rough talent almost every time. I dare anyone to tell Polomalu he is too old!
Posted Wednesday May 02, 2012, About: The most talented draft class
Wow, the most talented draft class and all they can talk about is one player, and he has learning to do? I think the Browns had a better draft then the Bengals. I for one would not be surprised if Cincy falls to last in the division.
Posted Tuesday February 21, 2012, About: Roethlisberger discouraged Haley hasn't called
Okay, Haley had the best rushing attack in the NFL in his second season as coach. He also took a defense from one of the worst to the top 10 (top 5 if memory serves) that year. He made great drafts (Moaki) and he won that division. The next year he instantly loses his starting QB, TE, and RB. Tell me one other team that suffered that kind of loss and still threatened for the division lead. Let's also remember it was Haley who brought in Orton (who almost single-handedly saved their season). I wonder if Orton hadn't hurt his hand on his first play as a Chief (and missed two weeks which they lost), had they won, would Haley have been fired? Haley is a great coach and he will get Steelers ball back to where it was! Don't believe me, just wait until you are on the opposing sideline!
Posted Thursday December 29, 2011, About: Browns facing Harrison without malice
Harrison will be just fine, but you might want to warn the Browns and especially Seneca Wallace not to do any boot-legging, fake run, option passes to the left.
Posted Monday December 12, 2011, About: Roethlisberger thought his leg was broken
Hey Ezekiel, the Steelers are number one (meaning the fewest yards allowed) this year for passing yards allowed per game. The secondary is a lot better than last year. Bring on the Pack. It's their secondary that has gotten worse.

For those of you who don't think Ben is tough, shame on you all. He has played more games injured than healthy, even to his own team's detriment. I would put him right next to both McNair and McNabb in terms of toughness. You know how to judge toughness for a QB, the one's who don't just step out of bounds or slide to avoid contact are tough. Can Brady say that? Can Brees? Can Rogers? Sure Brady has only missed games from his leg getting blown out (but they made a rule change for him because of it) and it doesn't show he's tough, it just shows he likes to play the game. Name one game Brady played through or returned to a game he suffered an injury? When was the last time Brees finished a game with a broken, bloody nose? When was the last time Rodgers limped around the pocket (as some analyst's said, "moving like John Wayne in a western") and made a 79-yard touchdown pass? The guy is tough, that's what this thread is about, not what he has done in off-seasons. And on a personal note to the person who compared QBs to offensive linemen in terms of toughness, you are an idiot. That's like saying Pepsi is better than lemonade. If you want to make comparisons, it is easier to compare things that are similar (ie: Coke & Pepsi, lemonade & orange juice, QB's & QB's, linemen & linemen). It's very sad and disconcerting that I would have to tell you that.

He's one tough SOB and if you don't believe me, don't worry, he'll be coming to your town someday soon and will crush your Superbowl hopes too. Just like he has to so many other teams and towns.
Posted Friday December 02, 2011, About: McNabb's next stop? How about Chicago
How well did it work out for the Eagles or the Redskins after they let McNabb go? As far as I can tell, both are at the bottom of their division. As for the Vikings, there wasn't much time to get used to the offense and they never let him open it up. The play calling by the coaches is what cost Minnesota last year and this year. They have been way to conservative. I would love to see him in a Mike Martz offense or at least someone who will let him play his game. How many quarterbacks out there would love a career like his..4 conference champ games and one superbowl appearance. Name another NFC QB that has that kind of dominance over his conference. You'll say Drew Brees and Aaron Rogers, and sure they each won a championship, something Donavan hasn't, but they never made that many appearances in the playoffs. Not since Aikman or Young, has anyone dominated the NFC like McNabb (I know...give Brees and Rogers time), and that's reality!!
Posted Monday November 14, 2011, About: NFL's least-desired coach
I bet 31 teams and all of their fans are sick and tired of the Steelers. All you have to do to shut us up, is to start beating us. Nobody said anything about the Steelers on this thread until your comment. Of course you hate the Steelers, they beat the Jets in the championship game. At least we are not arrogant enough to tell other people to shut their yappers. I know a lot of people sick and tired of hearing about the Jets too. Rex "let me see your feet" Ryan.
Posted Monday November 14, 2011, About: Can Denver keep winning with Tebow?
Yes I would. What were the three opponents they beat...Miami (winless at the time), Oakland (who had no qb w/exp.) and the Chiefs (who got blown away by the Dolphins the week before). So again YES, Kyle Orton could have accomplished the same feats. Let's not give Tebow a statue just yet, okay?
Posted Friday November 11, 2011, About: NFL's least-desired coach
I have to say BS on this poll, or at least ask when it was taken. 3 of these teams are on top of their division (4 if you only count the record for KC-tied for 1st). I have a feeling that all of the players polled were offensive players as these are defensive coaches (two of them often called geniuses). I suppose they all want to play for a great coach like John Fox, who went 1-15 last year, has only won 3 games this year, but people still think he will be the savior of Denver. That's great coaching. How about Shanahan who came in to Washington and had personnel issues from the very beginning and turned his own locker room against him- (not to mention his only success was w/ John Elway and creating the zone blocking scheme that opened up a running game-in Denver, not Wash.). This list has coaches that won 5 of the superbowls in this past decade. My guess is they interviewed TO 111 times since he has so much time on his hands now.

How many defensive ends can cover? I don't know a single one that was a better cover guy than pash rusher. He was pretty good at containing the edge. If you don't like him as a person, I understand, but to say he stained Steeler Nation is inaccurate. He helped rebuild the Steel Curtain after years of subpar defensive play. I know other players were involved, but he was a catalyst to help other teams fear us and get us back to a Superbowl after what, 15 years. He might have been a worthless person in your eyes, but he was a hell of a football player too that added to Steeler legacy, not taken away from it.

And yes everyone, PA Ravens fan did fanmail and accept the fact I can be a Steelers fan without ever stepping foot in Pittsburgh, or anywhere west of Minneapolis for that matter. And I am not a bandwagon jumper because I became a fan in one of the worst times in Steeler history. It's great to know my years of dedication and faithful years of yelling at my television have paid off so that one Baltimore fan can realize that not every Steeler fan outside of Pennsylvania jumped on the bandwagon. I can die a happy fan now!

I remembered another one, the GREAT announcer (sarcasm, lots and lots of sarcasm), Chris Collinsworth. It's funny how he talks about his time and winning ways in Cincy and how he hates anyone in that division (Pitt, Balt, Cleveland, and by extension the Titans who were the Houston Oilers). I understand the grudges, but how can you be an announcer when you are as biased as he is?
Posted Wednesday November 09, 2011, About: Lewis facing fine after Ward's concussion-like symptoms
I have to disagree with you on this point. Greene was a great compliment to Lloyd and he won some games for us, and was very entertaining to watch. The Steelers could have gotten another good year out of him, but they knew when it was time to let him go. He did have a great year in Carolina (their first if I remember correctly). He didn't stain anything for Pitt, just opposing running backs and qb's.
Posted Wednesday November 09, 2011, About: Lewis facing fine after Ward's concussion-like symptoms
I just don't get why you need someone to say they're a fan because of the rings. Is it going to help you sleep better at night? Is it going to prove to the world that you were right once? What's wrong with people liking the Steelers because they are proven winners? How many people became fans of the Ravens after their playoff run and SB victory? A lot more than before I'm betting. You cheer for your team every year, and we'll cheer for ours. The reason behind it is a moot point. You don't have to insult people to get them to tell you why they are fans.

"Now that's loyalty"!! Really???!! You want to talk about loyalty after you dropped the 3 teams you rooted for? No it's not your fault the Colts moved away, but wouldn't you still be a fan? You wonder what decade I'm talking about the Steelers being underdogs, but then you mention it for me? The 80's sucked for the Steelers and they did not have any success until 95. So that's a decade and a half where they were the laughing stock, right up there with Tampa (in the 80's). Hell, even Cincy went to a Superbowl in the 80's, and the Patriots. Can you remember anyone on those teams. All I can remember is Boomer and Icky Woods (only because the Icky Shuffle became the Bears' Superbowl Shuffle) from Cincy. I can't tell you one name from NE's superbowl appearance. So yes, the Steelers were underdogs after their 4th SB victory, not the first or maybe even second year after, but there was a time when no one would bet on the Steelers.
Posted Wednesday November 09, 2011, About: Session has a message for Colts
Everyone seemed to remember his name in Indy. He is a good player and will only get better. Watch the game if you can, I'm sure he will make everyone remember who he is.
Posted Tuesday November 08, 2011, About: Lewis facing fine after Ward's concussion-like symptoms
I've always told myself that if I ever see a game, it would have to be in Pittsburgh. I wanted to see a game at Three Rivers so bad and then they made the new field, which would still be better than any other stadium or dome, but it's not 3 Rivers. I've had chances to see them in Minneapolis or Kansas City, just never do because of the other teams fans. I had some Dolphin fans go to KC this past weekend and they said the Chiefs faithful were very nice to them. But the Vikings fans, every friend I've had go there and cheer for the opposing team has been in at least one fight. I just can't believe people who think that they can cheer for their team, but no one else has the right to cheer for theirs. I think a Steelers Superbowl would be great to see. Hopefully there is plenty of chances for us to try.

Thank you Stelr, but the truth is, being in South Dakota, any of 3 teams could have been my "home" team. The Vikings were still successful and feared, the Chiefs were a powerhouse defensively, and Denver had the coming of John Elway. Hell, some South Dakotans call Chicago and Green Bay their home team (God knows they weren't successful during the mid 80's-sarcasm). But yet this guy wants to call me a bandwagon fan. There were plenty of wagons to jump on, but the Steelers weren't the obvious choice. And if I was a bandwagon fan, wouldn't that change each year? Wouldn't I just jump ships when mine starts going down. He wants us to answer where we are from, I want him to answer who he cheered for before the Ravens were even a team. Then we'll see about his home team loyalties. The truth is, we have loved our team longer than he has even had one.

Oh, so the real reason you can support your team and back it up is because these other teams come in to your city and take it over and turn all of you into slaves. It's a game and people are free to cheer for whoever they want. Local fans don't like bandwagon jumpers? The team does. Why is it every away game has just as many Steelers faithful as the home team? These bandwagon jumpers have been faithful after watching a winning Superbowl draught last over 20 years after winning 4 of the first 18. The first year I liked Pitt, they finished last. So I'm not a fan because I don't live in Pittsburgh. I never get a chance to meet the players I cheer for. I never get to be a part of the charities or events they hold. I never get to see a practice. I've never even been to a game, but yet my heart beats Black & Gold. And you say I'm not a "real" fan, how dare you! I actually chose a team to cheer for based on work ethic, performance, player mentality, and coaching mentality (always cheered more for defense than offense). You just picked the team closest to you!
