    The Steeler got comforable with the players they have and did not draft well.

    The worst fans are people who care more about the team they hate than their favorite team.

  11. quittsburghstoolers says: Oct 5, 2011 1:29 PM

    Correction: I am NOT from Pittsburgh.

    I actually have healthy lungs…

  12. wtf2812 says: Oct 5, 2011 1:45 PM

    @quittsburghjackass … Healthy lungs??? Hahahaha. Where you from stooge? Don’t you know the mills left Pittsburgh in the 70s dawg?

    The city is one of the most beautiful in the country and is pretty much always listed among the most livable cities in America.

    You may know a lot about sucking but you know jack sh*t about anything else!!!

    2 losses and you are rebuilding. Steelers have 3 offensive linemen hurt. I am a bengals fan. Look what we do each and every year. The bengals or should I say Mike Brown won’t even spend the money on big free agents to put a team on the field. It is fully his fault that bengals have only had two playoff appearances in the last 20 years. I live in the greater Pittsburgh area and I work with a lot of steelers fans. You would think the steelers were 0-15 getting ready to lose the 16th game. Quit whining they are still an above average team and a competitive team. Ohh by the way before someone puts this on here 6 super bowls are great but they dont make you any better today or in the future that was a past achievement got to move on to the present day.

  14. rmm1984 says: Oct 5, 2011 2:00 PM

    Healthy lungs? What decade are you living in? haha

    quittsburghdouche, in several subsequent posts you still didn’t refute what dayumyou initially suggested, that you suck. At least, you are honest about yourself! And BTW you are a Steeler troll and took your valuable time to make a tribute ID to the Steelers and their fans! We really are under your skin that bad, huh? Congrats, and great job!

    GO STEELERS!!

    I just love you homers.

    BTW, why don’t you ever say “GO PIRATES!!”?

    Is it because there’s absolutely no denying that they suck and you are embarrassed to have that Double A quality baseball team (that’s masquerading as an actual MLB team) representing your town?

    Honestly, I can’t blame you there. I’d be embarrassed too if the Pirates played in my city…

    Fire Arians is all that needs to be discussed.

    I can here the steeler nation now:

    We want Bill!

    I lived in Pittsburgh for about two years in 85′ & 86′. It is a pretty clean modern city, even back then. I live near Cincinnati and know what the fans go through with Mike Brown.
    Steelers fans, like myself, have become accustom to having winning seasons and playoff births. Our goal every year is to win the Superbowl and beleive that we can. So we don’t like to settle for failure. We complain if it looks like we are going to have a bad year.

    Even at that we always support and root them on. We love the Black and Gold win or lose.

    Troll – Someone’s mom is letting them use the internet in the basement today. Why do you have such a hard on for Pittsburgh and all of their teams? Who would mention the Pirates on a football website?

    To be fair the Pirates probably shouldn’t be mentioned on baseball websites either.

    anybody who has watched the Steelers this year and has even a modicum of football knowledge knows that this team just doesn’t have it this year. Lord knows they have had a really great run without a major down year and given the ease of their schedule, I do not expect them to drop a 5-11 steamer on their fans, but the team just is not the same.

    truth be told, their front office has failed them in the last couple of years. the allowed the defense to get old without really stocking up on depth that can step and and solidly contribute. their OL draft has been absolutely horrible with the exception of Pouncey who is without question a probowler. But with him and the exception of Emmanuel Sanders that whole 2010 draft was worthless. Their defense looks like it has all gotten old together and at one time. Their defensive backfield which has always been a relative liability is even worse this year because Troy has lost at least one if not two steps.

    they need to do what the Ravens did this past year. We got much younger, a whole lot faster, and hungrier. Heap, Gregg, Mason, Magahee, TJ Whosyourmama are all gone and replaced by guys all under 25 who are hungry to play and have been playing very well. I no longer hear anyone saying that Terrance Cody is a bust, what they are saying is that he is a beast. Between him and Haloti Ngata, no one runs on the Ravens.

    They need to target the guys over 30 and let them go. Time for ziggy hood to play full time as well as their first rounder this year Cameron Heyward. The need to get rid of Farrior and Foote but their LB’s from the last couple of draft classes have been at best mediocre. The Squealers have always drafted well, and they will need to do so for the next couple of years if they are going to get out of this without having to totally rebuild as opposed to reloading. Finally, they better damn sight fix their OL. How we managed to get Bryant McKinnie and Andre Gurode without the Steelers even trying to compete is beyond me. Those guys have totally solidified our line. Maybe it was a salary cap issue.

    That was for all of my good steeler friends including Deb. For Mr. 7thlombardi or whatever his name is today, just keep living in your fantasy world. It is the only place where the Steelers will be the best football team in America. This isn’t jealousy, it is reality.

    @ppdoc13 …

    Who was saying Mt. Cody was a bust??? I’ll just have to slap someone silly! Roll Tide! ;)

    I’d like to hope being up against the salary cap explains why we made no effort to address our obvious offensive-line issues during free agency. But I honestly don’t know. It’s been a concern for years, and other than drafting Pouncey, we’ve just let it deteriorate. As for the age of the team … sigh. I’m afraid it’s more than that because some of our best young performers on defense aren’t performing. We have a lot of issues to address, and if we keep ignoring them, it’s going to be a long, disappointing season.

    Colbert has been effective, but he’s no Ozzie.

  25. mikeb233 says: Oct 6, 2011 4:14 AM

    everyone that keeps saying troy lost a step must not have watched the past 2 games. he’s been all over the field and making plays at the line just like you’d expect.

    If the Pirates were any good at all, you Pittsburgh homers would be hyping them up and YOU KNOW IT.

    Who the hell do you think you are fooling?

    Those of us who are actually sane people know the truth…

  27. Deb says: Oct 6, 2011 12:10 PM

    @quitsburghstoolers …

    Your Pirates obsession is bizarre. As I posted on another thread, the only pirate that interests me is Johnny Depp. I’m a football fan. Period. Don’t care about any other sport. And my NCAA team is Bama, not Pitt. In case you haven’t heard, we’re doing fine. ROLL TIDE!!!

    Steeler Nation is a vast empire. I’m a Fla. girl, but have been a diehard Steeler fan for 34 years since I was a kid. My street is made up of Steelers, Falcons, Browns, and Giants fans. You need to get over the idea that every team’s fans live in that city and support the other local teams, too. I’m not the only person here who doesn’t live in Pittsburgh or care about the Pirates. Sanity is understanding that it’s 2011, and NFL teams have global fan bases.
