Re: A Bit Confused Over The Hate

Do those of you who hate O'Donnell now hate Ben just as bad because he railroaded us just as bad? I will still watch the last game despite the mess the last 6 weeks have been because the Steelers are my team and I never get tired of watching them. I don't hate the "I told you so, sky is falling" crowd. But the Steelers are what they are. Don't expect it to change much next year. Ben is what he is and that won't change no matter who the OC is.
You cannot compare throwing away a SuperBowl against a heavily favored rival to what happened the past few Sundays in a down year. Bad comparison.
