  1. Carson Palmer is an ankle twist away from sending this team on a typical 4 game losing streak.
    Don’t buy stock in this team people

    You know what’s great about this? The steelers are in the bottom half of the conference with the browns, where they’ll finish!

  3. I BUY STOCK IN CHEESE. IT SOME KINDA’ TASTY. SOME OF MY BUDDY WIT A TERRIBLE TOWEL WENT TO CLEAN MY PRESCRIPTION HELMET BUT NO COME BACK. I WONDER WHO DEY?

  4. If you still think the Steelers are going to finish 3rd in the AFC North you’re crazy. Your “time” has not come. Flame away now, b/c I know that’s what’s going to happen. Wait until the end of the season. At the very least, this is worst case scenario (for the steelers), we can knock you out of the playoffs again, or maybe keep you out of the playoffs altogether like the year after LOL.
    Signed….Steeler Nation
    p.s. – It is kind of cute though seeing all the Cincy fans happy that their team is above .500….I guess I can’t really blame you guys. See you at Heinz Field.
