  1. If Sam Baker doesn’t play, Robert Quinn gets defensive player of the week again…

    hell on a bum knee vs a speed rusher, maybe it happens anyway

  2. Steelers 1-15 maybe if they get lucky….. And that win will probably be the Europe game against my Vikings. They are positioning themselves for teddy Bridgewater

    On the plus side, continuing to start CP7, we are pretty much assured one of the top 3 QBs to come out in the 2014 Draft!
    The Vikings are” ready for Teddy” , I am sure they will make another classic Vikings catastrophic blunder and use their pick for Taj Boyd, another flop waiting to happen, or better yet, another QB with a weak arm and happy feet, can you say Fales!

  4. Haha Steelers fan. How much did you pay for the replica Lombardi Trophies festooning your fireplace mantle? Do they make you feel more a part of the team? 😀 So adorable!

  5. Thanks to Matt Ryan and his “Brilliant” Agent Falcons are going to stink it up big time this year!! Pay the man all that $$ then get rid of a lot of talent to help protect Matt Ryan makes Zero Cents/Sense!

  6. “We laugh at the rest of the league.”

    How admirable to laugh at other teams’ injuries. Steeler fans are unlike any other that’s for sure.

  7. wearethesteelers:

    Who’s “we”? How do you figure that? I seem to recall the Peelers getting 100% handled by the Titans (the Titans!!!) last Sunday.

    I believe most of the league is laughing at you.
