Aaron Rodgers: “I haven’t been out carousing”

Getty Images

Stories have emerged about Steelers players being out late, enjoying the nightlife on both of the team’s first two nights here in Dallas. But Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says there will be no such stories about him.

“I haven’t been out carousing,” Rodgers said today. “I am a homebody, so I’ve been spending a lot of time in my hotel room watching film. I think it is important at the same time that you are sticking with your normal routine. I like to go out to dinner when I’m back home in Green Bay so I’ve gone out to dinner, to a couple of really nice spots, and then come home, relax and watch film.”

On Monday night, Steelers receiver Hines Ward was reportedly out at a strip club. On Tuesday night, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was reportedly “boozing” at a piano bar.

Of course, these are the Super Bowl week stories that can be used to fit any narrative we in the media choose: If the Packers win on Sunday, we’ll say it’s because they were studying while the Steelers were partying. But if the Steelers win on Sunday, we’ll all talk about how they were loose and relaxed while the Packers were too tight.

Rodgers acknowledged that there’s a risk of spending too much time watching film.

“You definitely can over-prepare, but I’m going to stay focused and keep doing the things that I have been doing the past few weeks to prepare,” Rodgers said. “Hopefully the rest of the team does the same.”

    Props for actually admitting that. Pretty much sums this all up perfectly.

    Or the Steelers realize they are up against the most overrated team to ever enter the SB and are not worried about preparing for them. Let the Packers have the spotlight today because on Sunday it belongs to the Steelers.

  3. He was going to go to that one bar with Ted Thompson and their “friends.” But their group consisted of only 13 people, so the Village People cancelled. That’s ok, I’m sure he watched the films, brokeback mountain and the birdcage over and over.

  4. This so awesome! Now we’re going to get stories, one by one that have the title “__________:”I haven’t been out carousing”. Soooooooooo interesting. Hope we get to hear from the guys on IR.

    And that’s exactly why you guys post these meaningless stories.

  6. Good for Aaron. I do believe the Steelers are kind of full of themselves. The Steelers are way to relaxed and with all the Ben issues that that keep popping up and the lockout being spoken about by every Steelers it will hurt them huge. They will learn from their mistakes. Good luck on Sunday.

  7. The Steelers are loose because they’ve been there, done that with most of the same players on today’s roster. They are a confident bunch… nice and relaxed, taking time to soak up the limelight and nightlife.

    Newsflash… this crew has beaten the Seahawks and Cardinals in the Super Bowl. There’s a BIG difference between facing teams who have NEVER been there and facing THE team with the most championships and the most fans.

    Relax Pittsburg, relax. This should be a walk in the park… Right??

  8. Rodgers is lucky it isn’t in New Orleans. He is known to love the French Quarter around St. Ann and Bourbon Street.

    How is a Super Bowl team overrated?

  10. Good boy Aaron, you stay home and study. I hope Clay and the rest of the guys are with you so you are ready to play Sunday.

  11. You don’t think everyone knows they are being stalked by people who want to make this a Tony Romo getting tail in Mexico? it’s weak

  12. The little things like this are what seperate a good QB from a great QB.

    Even if the Packers lose this Sunday, it is still apparent who is more focused.

  13. NON STORY

    As has been proven many, many times the Steelers can still win when Roethlisberger has a sub 50 QB rating.

    Now, if Dick LeBeau were out getting “faced” there would be a problem.

  14. “How is a Super Bowl team overrated?”

    When it comes from the NFC, where none of the teams were as good as the final four in the AFC, and yet they are favored to win on a neutral field.

  15. Update from TMZ…appears Ben and his mates were sticking to the routine as well. Oh, and it was Tuesday night, not Wednesday night. Journalism is dead.

    UPDATE: This morning, Ben told reporters about his big night out … saying, “It was a superstition and tradition on Tuesday night. I take the linemen out to dinner. We went out for barbecue and then we wanted to hear some live music. We just had an enjoyable night.”

  16. Funny how this site and the media yelled about people tweeting regarding Jay Cutler without waiting for prof of the injury. Now the site just posts rumors with no prof when it comes to the Steelers.

    I have not seen one piece of evidence that shows any of this….just reports from “unnamed sources”.

    I could careless what they are doing. And to simply show Rodgers and then say the “steelers”…please. Is there prof that all Packers were in Rodgers room studing? Nope. So they could be out to…but like usual this site only posts negative Steelers articles…..especially after they screwed the Rodgers report a couple of weeks ago.

    How can the PittsburgH Steelers control who they play in the Super Bowl ? And as for a cake walk, aren’t the Packers favored? Good onnneeee

  18. Bubby Brister was in town and he encouraged Ben and a few friends to go out with him. Bubby’s mother was there too.

    How is a Super Bowl team overrated?

    ——
    When you are a sixth seed team that needed help from 2 other teams to get in and ALMOST lost to Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.

  21. I really don’t think it matters who is doing what..the game is going to be great. The Steelers are enjoying Super Bowl week their way and the Packers are enjoying it their way..no story here..no big deal…lighten up morons..! As a side note the final scor eof this one is hard to predict..It will be a 3 – 8 point game. Being a Steelers fan, I hope it is in our favor..but if the Pack wins, the trophy will go to another class organization…!

  22. Big Ben boozing?? Gotta be a probation violation. Sit his arse and bring on Charlie Batch. BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA! Charlie Batch is actually still in the league!

  23. I used to hate Aaron Rodgers, because of the Favre thing, but he just goes about his own bussiness, unassuming, a great fantasy player and the mos dangerous QB in the NFL right now, I don’t think he has the magic to pull a game when everything is not going right, but he’s a beast when all is ok.

  24. Aaron Rodgers must be one of these self-righteous conservative/republican dumb jocks. I’m tired of the Steeler hate.

    Steelers have been to the Super Bowl 3 times is 6 years. Rodgers was still wiping the snot of Favre’s nose during that time.

  25. “Or the Steelers realize they are up against the most overrated team to ever enter the SB and are not worried about preparing for them. Let the Packers have the spotlight today because on Sunday it belongs to the Steelers.”
    —————-

    HAHAHA! Ah yes, Contra, the world’s first “overrated” Super Bowl team! Keep coming with your incredible wit, you are doing the Viking fanbase proud.

  26. did anyone see the interviews during halftime of the probowl (NOBODY but me watched, maybe)? rodgers was in a packers sweatshirt at packers hq, and rothlisberber was wearing a smoking jacket in front of a fireplace- no kidding. that should be all you need to know about their respective focus.

  27. That is what is a huge drag with the present day Packers. Where is Max McGee and Hornung when we needed em, drinking till 5 a.m. chasing the skirts, playing with a hangover.

    Big deal, I mean, anyone can play fresh. Let’s see how they do with some booze in em.

  28. “When you are a sixth seed team that needed help from 2 other teams to get in and ALMOST lost to Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.”
    ————-

    They didn’t need help. They beat the Giants and Bears in successive weeks to earn a berth. Let’s go over it.

    10-6 Giants
    11-5 Bears
    10-6 Eagles on the road
    13-3 Falcons on the road
    11-5 Bears on the road.

    Anything else, you disgrace?

  29. Before Super Bowl I, Max McGee was so hung over he could barely walk. He was a second stringer so he didn’t think he would play anyway so he spent the night before the game carousing and didn’t get any sleep at all. First play of the game, the starting WR goes down with an injury and he has to play. He goes in and the rest is history.

    Super Bowl I MVP.

  30. indywilson40 says: First!!!!!!

    You’ve done this on quite a few posts today and you’ve never been first. Please give up.

    As for Aaron, all I can say is that I hope he’s enjoying his Super Bowl experience. If he’s going out with his teammates or spending time in his room, I hope he’s taking it all in and having a great time–not every player gets to play in the Super Bowl, so he should enjoy it as much as he can.

    “How is a Super Bowl team overrated?”

    When it comes from the NFC, where none of the teams were as good as the final four in the AFC, and yet they are favored to win on a neutral field.

    ————————————————-
    Final Four in AFC: Jets, Steelers, Ravens, Pats
    All four have two divisional foes that haven’t been in the playoffs consistently in years. (And you could say the same about the Jets) So they literally have about 4 games a year that they were easily favored to win.

    Final Four in NFC: Packers, Chicago, Atlana, Seattle
    Packers and Bears have a 3rd team which has been in the playoffs 2 out of the past 3 years. Also the 4th team is slowly becoming better and beat the team playing in the superbowl
    Atlana: had another team in the playoffs and a 10-6 team close to it. Only cake games were Carolina
    Seattle: Worst of the bunch and beat a sleeping Saints team. Probably a good team that is coming back. Was in the superbowl less then a decade ago.

    So hmmmmm I’d agree with you only on Seattle, but the rest I’d say the NFC has you beat. I don’t see how you can say the AFC is better when all four teams in the final four were from 2 conferences with really only 2 good teams (this season) in each.

    IF Vick could throw, Pack is out any way and they know it.
    ———————————————
    …and IF Baltimore could hold a lead…

    The point is- if “ifs” and “buts” were “candy” and “nuts”, we would ALL have a Merry Christmas.

  33. When Aaron Rogers checks out…, do the Packers pay for the porn.., or does he have to pick that up himself? I think the Packers should pay for the porn…,

  34. Oh, you Steelers fans are about as transparent as the stupid act Big Ben tries to put on during his press conferences. He may be a hard guy to bring down, but it’s pretty clear he’s about as big a jerk as there is in the league.

    The fact of the matter is: you and I both know during the NFC Championship, you were rooting for the Bears, because of how much better of a TEAM the Packers are than you.

    You have an amazing, run-stuffing LB corps?

    Who cares?

    How are your cornerbacks?

    Atrocious?

    Good.

    You might be in the game for a half, but you are about to get blown out, and the rest of the World knows it.

    Again, you go ahead and hit us in the mouth on Sunday, and see if we pack up and head home.

  35. What’s with all the Rodgers hate? All he said was that he hadn’t been out much this week, except to go to dinner.

    This is news? or worthy of contempt? Geez…

  36. Contra and Pervey, Glad to see some classy Vike fans still around throwing the hate. Enjoying our run I see! Can’t wait to see the Pack Spank ya twice a year for the foreseeable future. Enjoy Vince Young next year!

  37. i still have seen the retraction that this was on Tuesday night and not Wednesday. journalism my tail

  38. Omigosh … I don’t even drink, but I’d have no problem going to a piano bar and singing Billy Joel songs from 11 to 1:15 a.m. At this point, the morals police are getting … creepy. If Aaron wants to have dinner, then watch film, fine. If Ben wants to have dinner, then go to a piano bar, fine. These are grown men and they both got where they are because they know how to do their jobs. The people stalking them need to get lives.

  39. “When you are a sixth seed team that needed help from 2 other teams to get in and ALMOST lost to
    Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.”

    You can whine about how the Packers were lucky but they took care of business by beating those two teams to get into the playoffs. And now they are in the Super Bowl.

    and oh yeah if you want to talk about lucky, look at the Vikings last year. Now that was an overrated team and they didn’t even deserve a Super Bowl berth.

  40. Weak. You have a full post about Michael Vick hosting a party which will consist of him showing up for 1 hr.,,but you bury Big Ben in a general story about The Steelers being out on the town. Vick, Young, McNabb, Pacman (would get 3 post’s) would all be headlined. Bias..and you know against who.

  41. Dear steelersmichelle: Fail. I was “first” on the James Harrison article, and tied for first on another article. Again, you fail.

  42. These players are human too. Who cares if they’re at a strip club or in the hotel room? Let them enjoy the Superbowl moment without being tabloid reporters.

  43. Two of the Classiest Organizations in football. Both have earned the right to play come sunday. Why is it that all we see on these boards are classless Steelers fans that have nothing better to do but insult everything, the board must be filled with 11 year olds. Win or Lose it will be great to watch come Sunday. There are very talented stars on both sides of the ball. MVP could go to the savvy polamalu on the other hand former heisman trophy winner Woodson could deliver too. It’s going to be fun to watch and one hell of a game.

    Teamwork
    “The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.”
    “People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.”
    “Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

    so keep your hate comments to yourself and see ya on here after the game

    True love know no age……..

  48. If it was announced that a Steeler was an axe-murderer this afternoon, Pittsburgh fans would be on these boards in droves, defending the practice and admitting to dabbling a little bit in contract-killing themselves.

    Man-up, and admit it, Big Ben makes your whole city nervous. After all, you won the Super Bowl against Seattle IN SPITE OF HIM, and his “winning” touchdown to Santonio “I took the fall Ben should have because I’m black” Holmes against Arizona may have been an amazing TD in college, but in the NFL, players must get BOTH feet down.

  49. Aaron Rodgers is the real deal! Of course, he doesn’t need to go out to have fun. He can just have the funboys sent to his room. I hear they love his porn stache.

    —————————————————–

    You obviously need to consult a dictionary on the definition of “overrated.” It sounds like you were trying to say “undeserving.” It’s ridiculous to call a 6th seed overrated.

    At any rate, the Packers are neither. What a saaaad day it will be for you on Monday.

  51. Steelers are gonna catch so much flack if they don’t win. It’s almost unfair to the Pack because if they win it will be blames on Pittsburgh not being focused.

  52. @duanethomas …

    Are you kidding????? Vick is a convicted FELON. Shots were fired at his party. Vince Young was arrested for assaulting a man in a strip club and walked away without one day of suspension. Pacman Jones had three years of felony arrests/pleas/convictions including two shootings before the commissioner handed down his FIRST league suspension.

    Roethlisberger had never had ONE league warning, violated ONE league policy, never had a single arrest, never been picked up by police, never been charged with ANY crime. He’s been sued in civil court JUST like umpteen other professional athletes by a woman who texted people confirming it was consensual sex. And he’d been accused by a sorority sister who had a medical exam showing the vaginal sex she alleged never occurred. If you want to post innuendos about race, hot shot, why don’t you google Jason Whitlock and Roethlisberger. The African American columnist has some really interesting thoughts on the subject in his latest piece.

  53. Contra, Ted, and Pervy…3 insecure idiot Viking fans with nothing but jealousy and hate. All they have left are gay “jokes” and calling a Super Bowl team overrated (brilliant) Look for this GB group to be the first to 3 peat in the Super Bowl era

  54. I cant wait till the GB defense eats Big ben for lunch. Run ben run BJRaji Needs to be fed and mathews is going to rip your head off. After the game you can party all you want and drink thru a straw…You will have to YeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  55. Party Schmarty, it don’t matter a bit. The only thing that counts is the score on Sunday night. The winners can then have the party of their lives, and the losers will go back to Pittsburgh and cry in their beer and cry WAIT TIL NEXT YEAR!

  56. “When you are a sixth seed team that needed help from 2 other teams to get in and ALMOST lost to Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.”
    =============================
    Yeah, just like that obscure team that came from the 6-seed to win SB XL. What were they called again?

  57. None of this matters. Who parties and who studies…please. I’m sure Broadway Joe and the Snake…both of whom have what Rodgers doesn’t…a ring…were studying in their rooms the week of the SB…yeah, sure.

    What does matter is what Joe Cool (the REAL one, Montana) said to Rome this morning. After the Steelers get some real big time hits on Rodgers early…it will change his whole approach to the game…like the hit he got from Peppers against the Bears. It seems all three pretty boys are the same….Peyton, Tom, and Aaron…hit them hard and often…and that changes it all. They can hit Ben again and again…and he’ll just wait for the moment when he sticks the dagger in their hearts and wins the game.

  58. “I haven’t been out carousing”
    -Aaron Rodgers

    That’s because he was locked in hotel room, calling down to the front desk about his broken TV.

  59. Wait until the summer Steeler fans. Big Ben won’t have his OL to take out so he will be forced to take little Ben out. I feel bad for Keisel, With Ben growing a little Keisel on his face. The Beard will take the fall for the next rape charge.

  60. contra and pervy. Classic stuff! But, shouldn’t you be debating whether you’re going to get Ryan Mallett or Cam Newton? HA HA HA HA HA. By the way, where’s Gravy? Have you checked on him lately?

    Your team is terrible and is going to be terrible for years!

  61. Green Bay fans haven’t seen a game like this since Jenn Sterger was 5 years old. The Steelers in this environment will produce, because that is what they do. Ben is single, hitting on coeds was stupid, but he is a player, and ask any ravensfan their opinion of how he performs in the clutch. NFC won last year thanks to Hefs old squeeze’s husband, and Katrina.

    You see, that is the problem for the Pack. Rogers ghost of Farve has NOT be exorcised as many have stated. Farve took em to a Super Bowl victory and had 3 MVP’s. If you think that this is not putting the pressure on Rogers, pleeeeeassssseeee child.

    Rogers is trying to hard to do everything right. He is tight and it is easy to see. I see doom once the Steelers defense gets a hold of him. Doubt will creep into his mind and he will start to become afraid of losing instead of focusing.

    —————————————————-
    I am going to have to go back and re-read the story and look at the TMZ clip again. I must have missed the part where Ben hosted the party at the Piano Bar and someone was shot.

    And don’t scream racism just because people can’t get past the disgusting things that your hero Ron Mexico has done. People on this board have criticized Ben, Favre and other white players just as hard as they do to Vick- when it is appropriate. So lighten up Francis.

  66. Hey good for you, Aaron, you choir boy you. Know who else didn’t go out carousing? The Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI. They stayed locked in their rooms like boy scouts. Meanwhile the Raiders went out drinking all night, and had a great time.

    Oh, by the way the Raiders absolutely spanked the Vikings that Super Bowl.

  67. I’ve been saying this since Day One: Thank God games are played on the field, not on a stupid message board with idiotic fans.

    I said that in the summer when Bengals and Ravens fans said the “Squealers” would go 6-10 without Big Ben to start.

    I said that when the Ravens and Steelers had their rematch in the second game of the regular season after Baltimore won Round One and their fans bragged they were going to sweep the series.

    I said that in the playoffs before the Ravens and Jets games when both teams’ obnoxious fans – especially the Jets! -ran their mouths.

    See a pattern here?

    I hope the Steelers win. I have no grudge against Green Bay. But before ANY of you run your mouths just remember none of these posts score a TD or make a defensive stand. The game will be won on the field.

    I can’t wait until Sunday.

    You’re being a little selective in your criticism aren’t you?

    Perhaps you should go back and read some of the Packers fans comments.

  69. I am looking forward to seeing James Harrison plant Rogers into the turf, several times. Oh yes, you know it will happen.

    GO STEELERS!!

  70. …YYYYYAAAAAAWWWWWWNNNNN. Championship QB’s know what to do to win…. last time I checked, BIG BEN has TWO! If that means going to a piano bar, so be it. No laws were broken.

    Young rodgers will learn if he makes it back againthat there’s time for a little musicthis week.

  71. As incredibly painful as it is to admit, the Pack is good and Rodgers is great. However, like their coach, listening to any Pack player interview is a sure fire cure for insomnia. You’d at least like something interesting to come out of that team other than MM growing up in Penn and Barnett whining about the team picture. Now don’t go and get your curds in a bundle there cheesers, I said your team is good and willingly acknowledge they are in the Super Bowl while my team’s players are sitting on their collective posteriors.

  72. When you are a sixth seed team that needed help from 2 other teams to get in and ALMOST lost to
    Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.”

    And the Vikes ALMOST made it to the big game last year….how did that work out for ya?

  73. That Steeler Ravens combat is so far beyond any other series, it’s difficult for anybody to realize unless they are from either town. Terrell Suggs, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, are phenomenal players, and the Steelers continue to show up every time we play them. Green Bay is a nice story, but they are about to enter a game that will rattle their cage like they have never seen.

  74. Me:

    “How are your cornerbacks?

    Atrocious?

    Good.”
    ___________________________

    Steelfan:

    “Jennings, dude Ike Taylor is a shutdown corner and is 4.3 guy. 6’1″ fantastic tackler. All he does is not let you catch touchdowns.

    Gay and Madden, not that great.

    Polamalu may be best player ever to play defense in the NFL.

    Ryan Clark will knock your oblongotta out of your head.

    Timmons will outrun any linebacker you have (including Matthews).

    Just watch Sunday. Should be fun”

    _________________________

    So, Timmons, Clark, and Palomalu round out your cornerback corps?

    No. they don’t play cornerback, which is why I said your CBs are atrocious.

    This isn’t your average squad. Bring on Taylor. Jennings will own him. As for the other CBs -they’re dead – we have the best group of WRs in the league. Don’t believe me? Check back on Monday.

    Also, one last thing, this type of statement is why no one can stand you Steelers fans:

    “Polamalu may be best player ever to play defense in the NFL.”

  75. McFadden and Gay certainly are not that spectacular. We’re going to give up two touchdowns to Erin Rodgers because of that. It’s just that one of the touchdowns will come at the end of the game when it doesn’t matter. I don’t blame people for hating Steeler fans. Being dominant and the playground bully never wins friends from the outside.

  76. Joe Montana may be the best player ever to play offense in the NFL doesn’t seem that farfetched. Troy fits that defensively

    Two of the Classiest Organizations in football. Both have earned the right to play come sunday. Why is it that all we see on these boards are classless Steelers fans that have nothing better to do but insult everything, the board must be filled with 11 year olds.

    Apparently you haven’t been reading the trash coming out of “gregjennings” and his other Packer Backer buds here. Frankly I’ve never seen such a garbage-spewing fan base on these boards like Green Bay. So I’d do a little more reading here before launching that boulder standing in front of your glass cottage. How many times are we going to read “Rapistburger” from a Green Bay fan (never mind that SEVEN of your guys were accused of rape) — you call THAT “mature” friend? Gimme a break.

    Jennings, if the cb’s of the Steelers are atrocious in your eyes, you are just dumb. Taylor checks the number 1 wideout all day. He gave up 1 TD all year. 1. Did you ever watch them play? Ever?
    Tried to explain about the other players as it is a team game.

    I think you have fine receivers. One has to wonder how often Rogers will get to really see them though.
    That is the other part of the equation. Right?

    Polamalu may be best player ever to play defense in the NFL. Rogers is tight. Watch his eyes tonight on TV. Tight.

  79. Rogers teammates should be getting Rogers out to a piano bar. He has to loosen up or it will be his waterloo. Seriously. Media is worshipping him, the ghost of Farve, first super bowl.

    They should take him out clubbing and relax. Follow the path of his ancestors like McGee and Hornung.

  80. You know what, gregjennings85, for all you bragging and boasting about your Packers — remember, we’ve already seen the Steelers and Packers go head-to-head in an all-out track-meet light-the-scoreboard-up shootout, Big Ben vs. Aaron R. in a classic QB duel.

    Which team won?

    Rogers is tightening up. You can see it. You can feel it.

    I bet you enjoy that feeling while your with him.

  82. A night out with his linemen in a place called Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar. Non-smoking. Before curfew. My litmus test is would I let want my daughter to work there? And the answer is yes. (She’s an excellent musician.) I don’t drink but next time I’m in Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin, or Vegas, I think I’ll stop in. Looks like a fun place. Too many small people making judgments of Big Ben.

    Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.”

    You can whine about how the Packers were lucky but they took care of business by beating those two teams to get into the playoffs. And now they are in the Super Bowl.

    and oh yeah if you want to talk about lucky, look at the Vikings last year.

    duece5 says:

    Oh you mean the 2009 Vikings that absolutely embarassed the packers TWICE last year? That one? Thanks for reminding yourself…..typical brainless packer fan…..please think before you have your mom type for you!!

  84. @johnnyballsack …

    Oooh, nice post. If we actually start agreeing on things, it might be a sign of the Apocalypse 🙂

    @cintiphil …

    Hi, darlin’, how are things at the home? What you said about us crying “wait ’til next year”? You Cincy fans know a lil somethin’ about that, huh? 😉

  85. Contra, you make no sense. I find it hard to believe you have an mba. I guess it makes sense though considering the current state of the economy.

  86. Pittsburgh keeps bragging about winning by one point last year. Too bad 3 of those DBS that the Packers put out there that day dont even play anymore.

  87. steeelfann says:

    IF Vick could throw, Pack is out any way and they know it.

    Woulda, coulda, shoulda… If Flacco was more consistant, the Steelers would be sucking hind tit.

    See how stupid this game is?

  88. @contra74,

    Is that why the Packers are favored? I know they say the Steeler fans are blue collar workers yadda yadda. If you are a true representation of what Steeler fans are they might just want to start calling them idiots. But let me guess you probably know more then the guys who make the lines on the games.

  89. pervyharvin says: Feb 3, 2011 1:52 PM

    Rodgers is lucky it isn’t in New Orleans. He is known to love the French Quarter around St. Ann and Bourbon Street.

    ———————-

    Well pervy, what exactly can be found in that area and how is it that you are so familiar with the scene?

    Or the Steelers realize they are up against the most overrated team to ever enter the SB and are not worried about preparing for them. Let the Packers have the spotlight today because on Sunday it belongs to the Steelers.

    How is a Super Bowl team overrated?

    When you are a sixth seed team that needed help from 2 other teams to get in and ALMOST lost to Chicago’s third string QB…THATS how.

    —–

    the packers never needed, nor got help to get into the playoffs – they controlled their own destiny, beat the giants and chicago, won the tie breaker and they advanced – secondly, every great team finds a way to win when having an off game – that actually is the mark of a great team, historically – in this game rodgers got rocked early in the second half (after shredding chicago’s high school-like defense in the first half), and yeah, he made some questionable decisions – the defense, however, stepped up – with the aid of ROOKIES and late-season STREET ACQUISITIONS, the defense made plays and put the game away. team football, idiot. youre posts are categorically ridiculous.

    get it straight – 6 of 7 players were cleared immediately, and charges are not being pursued against the 7th because the accusers lied within minutes of making initial statements – this is why the story was never taken seriously – old ben has a different kind of story – and rep – now that he’s been accused…twice? hmm. where there’s smoke…there’s ben…and maybe a stumbling drunk college girl. well played ben. keppin in classy.

  92. steeelfann says: Feb 4, 2011 8:31 AM

    Did you see Rogers tonight on NFL network.

    TIGHTER he is getting man, tighter.

    I hope he doesn’t totally implode.

    I want a great game.

    ——————————————————

    So is his HC, Holmgren casts a BIG shadow.

  93. I think censorship should be censored because I am so damn tired of having my posts censored from these threads for the most freaking idiotic reasons.

    Apparently, it’s okay for a dimwit like kcbuds to stereotype Steelers fans as steel workers, but it’s not okay to comment on the stupidity of stereotyping.

    Apparently, it’s okay for a guy calling himself “stinkyfingers”–with the inherent sexual connotations that carries–and declare a QB guilty of rape when we all know from the evidence and comments of the Georgia authorites that isn’t the case. But it’s not okay for me to make a wisecrack at him. It’s clearly okay for Packer fans to put the Jets fans to shame in terms of arrogance, but it’s not okay for me to say so.

    Where is the vulgarity in my comments that’s making them sooooo inappropriate for the delicate eyes of the PFT faithful that you have to censor me on almost every thread even though I’ve been told that wouldn’t happen anymore????????????????????

    If you have no problem posting bigoted, stereotyped, and libelous comments, you shouldn’t have any problem posting me calling them out. Stop posting them and I’ll stop writing the rebuttals.

  94. Steelfan:

    I take it you’ve just started observing Aaron Rodgers. He’s tight, that’s his personality.

    Call me crazy, but I like my QB to be a perfectionist.

    I know you guys love Ben’s ‘throw it around with reckless abandon’ approach, and I can assure you, Charles Woodson, Tramon Williams, Nick Collins, and Sam Shields do, as well.

    Pick 6. Believe it.

  95. Before Super Bowl I, Max McGee was so hung over he could barely walk. He was a second stringer so he didn’t think he would play anyway so he spent the night before the game carousing and didn’t get any sleep at all. First play of the game, the starting WR goes down with an injury and he has to play. He goes in and the rest is history.

    Super Bowl I MVP.

    I believe you are misinformed. The MVP in Super Bowl I was Bart Starr. And McGee was 3rd on the depth chart behind Boyd Dowler, Carroll Dale. When Dowler went down…and he heard Lombardi yell “McGee”….he thought the coach found out that he broke curfew!

  96. @steeelfan

    So evidently you must think Rodgers is getting “tight. Remember, just because you think it, unfortunately, that doesn’t make it so. Guess we’ll find out in a little over 48 hours.

    Good luck to Steeler fans on Sunday night. The 2 guys that are out must be going crazy knowing they will not get to play.

    Personally, I just hope it’s a well played game and not decided by referee blunders. Oh, and of course, also for a Pack victory.
