half and the plan was to play "not to lose"/"not to look bad". The Pats came out aggressive and once again Cowher looks like a fool. He'll never learn, he surely would have by now. If the Steelers go on to lose this game, I think the game in SD two weeks from now will put a stamp on our mediocrity.this: and after just three weeks into the season . . . who are you rooting for now???Who I'm rooting for has nothing to do with Cowher's attitude Pollyanna.
fan giving up on their team? They'll watch every game and sellout the stadiums with a 1-11 record. So far, from reading this newsgroup the past few weeks, I've read nothing but sorry ass fans bitching about sorry ass problems. The season may be over, but you don't have to start rooting for Cincy or the Ravens - what the hell is that? What kind of fans would sit around and talk shit on some of the best players in the game - and why? Because certain players aren't living up to "expectations"? I bet last season most of you would have been shoving your noses up
Even if that were true, (Franco did NOT use the stuff.. But IF he did), it would have been legal.. It was made illegal for NFL use in 1981..Yeah and it took the government 6 months or more to make the drug ectasy illegal. So that made ectasy okie dokie for that time period huh? You boast about greatest ever.And the bottom line is that they broke rules and were fined and docked a draft pick for it. If you can live with that, cool. Personally, I'm happy as hell to be rooting for a team that doesn't have that saddlebag over its back.Yeah, and this is proof positive that
I loved seeing Franco Harris whip out his Terrible Towel during his pre-game introduction as a former Super Bowl MVP. The other MVPs tried to appear non-biased and professional during their announcements, but good ole Franco couldnt conceal his Steeler Pride and started twirling that towel like it was 1978 all over again!!! Another great moment in a legendary NFL franchise!!!!Yeah, that was perfect. Jack Jag fan in jacksonville,
about how this game could be close, maybe if it were in Oakland, but not in Mass probably not in Oakland either. I am listening to Ellis Cannon now, he has a few local sports guys on talking about the Steelers and also tonight's game. Pompeani has Oakland going to the SB. Anyway I know who I'm rooting for tonight. Just glad we are finally there in regards to it counting.I'll say Oakland in an upset.I'll say you got caught up in some wishful thinking .I'll say I took a shot at it. :)I'll say!I concure.I'll also indeed concur as well
Has there ever been or do you think a team will have 2 guys rush for 1000 yards in a season? In 1976 Rocky rushed for 1036 and Franco 1128 amazingly done in 14 games. I remember it well, simply awesome.I believe the only other time was 72 Dolphins with Csonka & Morris.Cool, thanks. I remember that Dolphin team too. That was a great season also.
He rips off long runs then runs out of bounds just like Franco always did. Bye bye Fast Willie ..its been fun.Hopefully, just like Franco he starts in 4 super bowl wins. I think Franco might still be the all time leading rusher in playoffs.
39; after all of these years. What a weird football year, it's not even any fun cheering against Notre Dame this year. (and I have 2 winless FF teams to boot so much for the 'Kurt Warner will save us' strategy).How could any Steeler fan NOT have been rooting for the Cowboys in that instant? They aren't in our conference the Pats are. If we want home playoff games we should be rooting for some Pats losses. And yes, I despise the Pats now about as much as I despised the Cowboys in the 90's. They have that arrogance that makes my stomach turn, they seem
followed by their first SuperBowl win . a fluke of nature by the team that will always be the team the Bears blew out in the '85 Superbowl. I always questioned Jimmy the Flordia Steeler fans 'Loyalty and Patriotism' as a Steeler fan after that I think he jinxed us that year by rooting for the wrong team. (somehow this reminds me of a recent election). Anyway, the Girl in the 49er jacket made me think of Jimmy. As I was cruising down the road in my black and gold car it dawned on me "of coarse this is Steeler country, everywhere is Steeler country. You can tell by
their own destiny to the #2 seed and a first round bye. Indy could theoretically go undefeated, Pittsburgh would have 2 losses, NE would have two losses (Pittsburgh would have the head to head tiebreaker), and San Diego would have 3 losses. It's just that simple! :-)OK, I'm rooting for Indy but my logic is more simple. I despise the Patriots, their fans, their organization, the players, and the coaches. They are a simple of all that is evil in the sport.Well-said! The Patsies are showing their true colors this season, and it's rather sickening. Here's a
ths year,local tv where I live carried the majority of the Steelers games instead of the Browns.Add to that the fact that I dont have Sunday Ticket, equals me trapsing down to the neigborhood sports bar. So lets see watching a 25 inch RCA by myself in a corner of the bar without any volume,rooting for a lost cause,with no wait staff in site,or in the big room on the multi plasma screen setup up with my ass surrounded by surround sound,,cold beer,and crazy Steelers fans having a drunken good time.It kinda subconsciously did something to me. No,I am neither a bandwagon jumper,nor a convert
I'd like to see the Dolphins win because they would be an awesome matchup for the Steelers and it would knock the Ravens out. I'm rooting for the Colts in the other game because this Chargers team is not the same one the Steelers beat earlier in the year.Agree that the Dolphins would be a little better.
Not sure about the Colts--they did beat the Steelers already. I think
these teams could blow out the Steelers or be blown out by the
Let's hope these playoff games are decided by the players and not the
eating crumpets and drinking tea with our pinkies in the air.proud! Incest is still alive in Steel City! Go Pats!This from the guy who categorized the Browns' season as " a success in my book".This is why you should be called Nino the Mindless PLONK!Yeah, God forbid anyone have a little fun. LOL It's not WV dudes. Just some good old boys having some fun. Now go root for your own teams and have a little fun. ~ toyou
WIN the superbowl. mikeThanx , I agree totally with the part about the (majority ) of Pats fans- I live in eastern PA as well & yes after the Colts lost yesterday the only team I can even stand to watch in the Superbowl would be the steelers. If the steelers would have lost to the jets I would have been rooting for the Colts because wether ya like him or not Manning is a great one, Not his fault it was a bad game plan & the recievers dropped passesWhile I will agree that Manning is a great QB and not all his losses against the Patriots were his fault, to let him off the hook
. Bettis nearly fucked away his chance at a SB singlehandedly this year. Keep it low key. I love how they were interviewing the Dallas LB James M. and he didn't look too thrilled when posed with a question about rooting for Steelers because of Bettis. He said some kind words about Bettis, took a good natured dig at him for his Indy fumble, and then said he has rooted for the Steelers for a long time. He didn't play along with the interviewer. I hope more players say this. Seriously, what has Bettis done in the playoffs over the years to make this such a huge story? He has been average
I'd say we're a lock to win the SB!If He were really rooting for the Steeler then He would have sent Randy Moss their way.Actually, Moss plays for the other team Moss isn't Steeler material. Never happen.
, I think the combination of a very hot Peyton Manning and a secondary that has Hank Poteat a play away from going into the lineup is just too much to overcome. Plus, if Seymour can't go, the D will be that much more ineffective. Of course, anything can happen. I'm actually rooting for New England, because I honestly don't know how the Steelers secondary will match up against the passing game of the Colts (yes, I'm assuming a Steeler win Saturday against the Jets). Of course, I do think the Steelers will win against either team in the AFC championship game. I just think that
the referees during the commercial timeout. Pats bring in the punt return team . wait we have a late flag. looks like pass interference on <insert miscellaneous name here> automatic first down! the great Peyton Manning's drive continues along with his Dad's (future NFL commissioner Archie Manning) superbowl dreams. if Patriots do lose to that horse headed whining son of a bitch, I'll be rooting for your Steelers to take em down!!Kinda like when the Pats beat the Raiders? LOL, the excuses are already starting. Eric in CA GO STEELERS!!!!!!!
Will any team pick up Kordfell next season? "Inquiring minds want to know!" (tm) ;-) ZachAnswer: 1: Sasha Cohen 2: Yes. The Baton Rouge Wildcats http://www.batonrougewildcats.com/ Korkey and his agent have already contacted them about the exciting possiblity of playing for them this season.
