Hello from a Browns fan. SB eh?????
Well, I ain't here to flame ya, believe it or not. I have "hated" the Steelers my entire life, but in recent times, thanks to the jerks named Lerner our once great rivalry has turned into an annual Browns-get-bitchslapped twice a year event.
Before my old man passed away he came to admire Bill Cowher and anyone who cannot see what a passionate football man this coach is, is a complete nincompoop.
I have been cheering for the Steelers since day one of the post season and will be pulling for you guys to pound Seatlle the way you pounded the Colts and Denver.
I feel lucky to have seen a guy like Bettis play, he is a lock for the HOF and I would like to see the guy get a SB ring. Cowher has taken abuse for not winning it all, which is idiotic, but if there are football gods anywhere, surely they will be shining obn Cowher this time around.
I will be honest, part of my reason for rooting for you goobers (nuthin but luv) is because a 5th SB title might just be the kick in the rear that Cleveland fans need to start booing the crap team we have and stop the Lerners from running it into the ground.
So personal feelings out of it, here is why the Steelers will win this SB, without question.
The overall talent level on this Steelers team is not that different from many teams of the recent past. Cowher's teams are always intense, smash-mouth, block-and-tackle maniacs. Nothing has changed
HOWEVER, in the past, Bill Cowher has never had a QB that stood up to the best QBs in the NFL. No disrespect to Kornholedell, O'dumbell and Turnover Tommy Maddox, but the Steelers of the past 10 years really achieved without a world-class QB.
Roethlisburger makes the Steelers extraordinary. Plain and simple.
Hasselsnots won't know what hit him. Trust me, he will fold early and he won't recover.
The difference next week will be Ben Roethlisburger.
The Browns could have had him, but instead we have Kellen Gimp-slow and Trent Dildo-fer "tearing" up the NFL.
I don't think you guys realize just how great Ben is going to be.
I will be rooting with you this coming sunday.
