You have every reason to be proud of your team and even to gloat a bit.
You've said nothing that isn't true.
Congrats to the Patriots on a gutsy win.
We, as Steeler fans, can only hope the Steelers *somehow* once again
overcome Cowhead and get to the Playoffs in order to possibly have another
shot at the Patriots. Not that there's any reason to think Cowhead could
devise a gameplan (those of us who are intelligent and can observe without
yellow-tinted shades wonder if Cowhead even knows what a game plan is, much
less when it's time to throw that gameplan out the window) that could defeat
the Pats in an important game at this point.
Anyway, with the last drive by both teams, at least it was a fairly exciting
game in the end. Far more so than it should have been. With all the breaks
the Patriots gave the Steelers, not to mention the key injuries, you have to
be honest and confess some worry there for a awhile. Until the second half
demolition that is. And even then, Ben ate up that secondary (finally) to
tie the score. It was Cowhead who, once again, made sure to snatch defeat
from the jaws of potential victory. Don't get me wrong, I fully understand
that Tom Brady had a lot to do with it too. It's just that Tom was probably
on the sideline while the Steelers were scoring that last time, thinking:
"OK, go ahead and score but just leave me a minute to go right down for a
winning FG." Which is exactly what happened and I doubt Tom was the least
bit concerned the whole time.
I mean afterall, has Tom Brady not calmly done this to almost every team, no
matter how good they were supposed to be, in the league over the last 4
years? In my book, we all are watching the career of an unquestionable
first ballot HOF'er in Tom Brady.
If the Patriots aren't the Dynasty of the new millennium, then Katrina is
just a chick "walkin' on sunshine."
And in case any non-Steeler fan, or Steeler fan, thinks otherwise, I LOVE
the Steelers and have since the beginning of the Superbowl 70's. I bleed
black and gold. I've got the collectibles, the autographed training camp
paraphernalia, the custom designed and rare t-shirts... all the Steelers
"stuff." I'm with the TEAM come hell or high water. But let's be real;
Cowhead is the weak link of this team, a joke really, and the Patriots ARE a
true dynasty and a far superior team than the Steelers at this point in
time... and the Pats have been superior for several years now.
believe me, I really wasn't gloating all that much. its amazing how many
teams have beat themselves over the last 5 years when they play the
Pats. I give your team credit, they use to be the prime example of a
team that said they weren't beat but lost it themselves. you didn't hear
that kind of talk coming out of them this week before or after the game.
who was it that said that the first time in '01 .... that the sometimes
the best team doesn't always win?
so, its a little touchy sugject even 5 years later especially from a
Steelers fan. last night, to even delude oneself into thinking they gave
the game away given the stats .... well, I thought he could use a
reminder, one for each time he said it. plus, he was having fun all week
over in our neck of the woods so he deserve a little friendly ribbing.
ok, maybe it was a little gloating as I have to admit even I didn't
think they had that game in them ... again! and when Harrison and Light
went down, Starks before that I figured it was all over. but, they never
cease to amaze us and if only we fans could have the kind of stones
those guys have. but alas, my defense, the RedSux mentalities permeates
and bombards all that is sports mentality in this region.

He was dismissed following the 1999 season after losing a power struggle to coach Bill mediocre qb look better .then have a hissy fit when anyone criticizes his moves. Only the Bills could do worse than Jamain Stephens, Chris Conrad, Paul Wiggins, and Kris Ferris. It all starts with the Offensive Line, Tom Done-and-how, especially when your offense under Mularkey is tailored to the running game.

What goes up, must come down. You can't win forever, and when it all stops you can be sure that your 'friends' in this NG and others will make sure the ride down is as painfull as possible. I didn't bother trolling the Jets NG when we beat them because I could imagine how much that one hurt. It's called 'class'. You should try it sometime. I normally hate Philly, but I'll be rooting for them in two weeks. I hope you can imagine the shitstorm that is coming your way if your team fails to win.Yeah what a shitstorm! I can see it now!

hope! ** STEELERS PLEASE FIX THE OL AND GET BEN SOME PROTECTION ** Fixing the OL also opens up our run game. We need to pickup a big bruiser type back next season and I think we should use Davenport more and stop expecting Parker to be something he's not. Parker has phenomenal speed but he can't make his own holes, so use him when it'll work and don't just stuff him up players a duty even because it all starts at the top. Insurmountable task for a rookie HC, so I think the importance fell directly on his staff. LeBeau was a no brainier when it comes to picking his brain
;#39;m hoping the mojo will flow. If he does it, I'm looking for a 28-10 halftime lead. If he does what I think/hope he does and starts shutting it down in the 4th and no earlier looking at a 42-24 win. That it is John that it is and the real disheartening thing is, which I guess HC and both have led their team and won 4 SBs each. A true dynasty for all ages. The Pats could have won the ones we didn't, but their road would have stopped in Pittsburgh :-) Well, it can all start in 4h30m and counting Not this time Bill, not this time, pass aggressively, pass
all was perfectly logical and normal. That is what a leader does. And to be a winner in the NFL your quarterback must be a leader first. Rifle arm, quick release, good reading ability, able to avoid the sack, etc all fall in line behind leadership And that is why Maddox is a quarterback and others who have been on this team were/are not. Before you ask someone to save the world, you'd better make sure they like it the way it is --- Xander CageAbsolutely and those trying to stir up trouble about him are dolts who should never be considered in debates that are based on facts.

another K. Johnson/Randy Moss as far as attitude, where is all this [email protected]
coming from? I'd really like to see these players catch balls, get pd but shut the hell up .you can lump Warren Sapp into that category as well. DaveI think the media feeds it also. Look at what they did to Barry Bonds. In the down by not letting me pull my helmet off and showboat when I make a good play. It must be slavery. From what I heard from Sapp he is a mindless idiot .and I hope he and his 20 kids know I said it. Warren Sapp .you are a low class, thuggy, moronic punk! From: Dave Wilson Media?
on another. 4 more weeks to see what he's got. On a brighter note, Troy "I look like Jimmy Superfly Snuka" Polamalu seems to be improving. Got his first sack. Coverage is so-so, but the more he learns to read & react and the less he has to think the better he will be. Scott simply needs to go. They can make up for the dead money somehow, but he's worthless. Let's see what #24 has before the season is up. If he won't be ready to start in '04 we can draft Chris Gamble or Marlin Jackson in round 1. -Heath "Black & Gold 4 Life"I agree
a little country garage and been running 4x4's for 20 years. I've had quite a few people ask how they should drive their 4x4's, mostly women and older people who bought the SUV. I tell them: Put it in 4-wheel drive high and drive it. You can run down the road 40-50 mph without it binding up as long as your tires are all matched an properly inflated. If it's bad enough out that you feel you need 4-wheel drive you don't want to be running over 40 mph anyway. 4x4's do bind-up a little while going around corners in town but you'll be
It just seems a bit too tidy, considering how things went down. Here's the rub: No intelligent person, and that includes Pittsburgh fans, watched the Steelers 21-10 "victory" and believed it was well-officiated. Period. And every -- EVERY -- call went against the Seahawks. Seahawks fans promise to stop being paranoid just as soon as the NFL proves it it it Chris Hope stomped and huffed and demanded a flag, perhaps insisting that Jerome wanted it that way. Beleaguered tight end Jerramy Stevens makes a spectacular catch inside the Steelers 2-yard line setting up decided it was It
Geez!!Apparently until the Packers run out of room.LOL! Yep, that about sums it up.
round. But what if Townsend and Hope both are not retained or refuse to resign with the Steelers? And what part does the resigning or lack of Ike Taylor play in all of this? 1. Can Carter or Hope the money he deserves. If Hartins can take a cut and make some key draft picks and signings i think we can make a run at it next year too.Troy is under contract. Troy is the Strong Safety and Chris is the Free Safety. We need Chris because he can cover WR which frees up Troy to improvise at the line and get to the QB. If Chris leaves and we do not get someone of his caliber to replace him it
better move w/ all of the new it has been pretty dismal -- especially 3rd round, where the Steelers used to find the gems. Check out this track record. 2000: Clancy, Poteat, Farmer, Haggans, Martin, Combs, Gavadza ---- only Haggans has any business being here. I liked Farmer at the time but he was a bust. Problem with this draft was compounded in allowing one of the league's best young centers -- undrafted FA Hank Fraley -- to escape to the cross-state rivals. At least Kreider was discovered. 2001: Nkwenti, Okobi, Bailey, Knight, WR Chris hope of sticking, then package them and move up

special teams are composed of second line players so you see there is no depth and no hope for next year without getting an infusion of talent. At this point I'm not so sure that coaching is even the biggest problem, the players just don't have it, age, or just not very good, it makes no difference. Years of poor drafting position and poor draft selections have crippled them. 't be surprised if you see him coaching next year, I hear Baltimore is interested but I doubt Cowher is interested in Baltimore as they have similar problems as the Steelers and no QB at all. John
take a couple of really bad losing seasons, and the media uproar, before he decides to hang it up. Let us hope that the lessons learned from this year are acted upon wisely for next year. And there were alot of lessons to be learned.Everything about his demeanor on game day says he has had enough ..when things go wrong the expression on his face says it all .. "why the hell didn't I retire on Feb.6th 2006." I could be wrong but that's what I'm seeing.So are you saying Cowher doesn't want to win another Super Bowl ever? So
out then forced to throw when everyone and their grandma knows what's coming. What is worse, it Maddox doesn't need to pass for all those yards, he only needs around 220 for it to be a good game as long as it's how he is allowed to pass which he isn't until all hope is lost. The old guard says you need to establish the run to open up the passing game, and our O-Line can't give Maddox the time to pass. Simply put bullshit. And after 10 games of watching the same thing it's guaranteed bullshit. Did anyone notice the -1 yard to 3 yd runs we had BEFORE the

39;s Len Pasquarelli has ranked Steelers safety Chris Hope as the No. 19 free agent available this offseason, Hope has yet to line up a single visit, even as other guys are criss-crossing the country in search of the big money that flows in the early days of the signing period. So what's the problem? As one league source explained, "Hope has no one interested in him because all the teams get the films of all the games. He is slow, can't tackle, and he is dumb, all of the qualities that go into a big contract." Ouch. The fact that Hope has yet to even schedule a visit is
