i will root for and expect my team to win every game until the bitter end. the sellout quitters say i wear black and gold color glasses.
when in reality, i wear a steelers jersey and wave my terrible towel proudly. **** the panicing pattys.
Couldn't agree more. Yes, we are 2-3, and an ugly 2-3 at that. But look at, for instance, the Giants last season. They looked awful at points during the season, losing to Seattle at home and being 7-7 after 14 games. Their defense looked just as bad as ours does, if not worse, and we know how our season ended up. I can't stand the pessimism from so many fans. Let's see what happens this week, and if we lose, then maybe its time to press the panic button a little at 2-4, but until then we're only a game away from being .500 and right in the thick of things in whats shaping up to be a very mediocre AFC.
