Hey, I'm a homer. Every Sunday I root for my team to win. I just realize that sometimes it's going to be harder to win than others.

I think we're just having one of those years. We have aging guys, beat up guys, and guys that haven't yet (and may never) reached what we thought was their potential.

I'll be on the edge of my seat Sunday night rooting for the black and gold. I hope nobody doubts that because I happen to be a sourpuss about this season.

Why does support always have to mean blowing these athletes when they play like s#@t??? Can't support be: buying their jerseys, buying tix to the games, watching the games on Sundays and rooting for the team? I don't get that support can only be positive. I'm sorry but thar's BS. It doesn't make you a non-fan for being disappointed in the way they are playing. They lost to two of the worst teams in the league. THAT SUCKS! And iIlove the Steelers.

I have been blasting the Steelers players and coaches that deserve it. But I still think they can do it this year.

Get Woodley and Harrison back on the same page, and the secondary problems wil fix themselves. We do that, and this team is back in business.

The Steelers are going to get better as the year goes on:

* Mendy getting back to near 100%
* Redman getting healthy again (he looked beter this last week)
* DeCastro comes back.
* Gilbert comes back (he's still better than Trai EsSUX).
* Team gets more comfortable with Haley' system
* Woodley and Harrison getting healthy again
* Troy Poalamalu getting back on the field

your post history shows that when you have nothing to complain about, you dont post at all.

way to go, bud! way to bring something positive and worthwile to the table! we are blessed with your presense.

everyone give steelerfevers most notorious and chronic complainer a big hand.

Sorry, didn't realize this was a "Happy" board. I pay my money just like you do, so that gives me the right to "complain" when I see it fits. I have been a Steeler fan longer than you have been alive, I will always be a Steeler fan. There isn't a square foot of my house that doesn't display Black and Gold of some form. I lived through the Bubby and Malone days, through 30 years of no Super Bowls, and now I have to live through all of that again???????

I have every right to complain. this team is heading down the Browns path and I don't like it.

Oh, and there is a difference between the Prozak view you have and reality.

Call me a blind fan, a loyal fan or a whack job... but I dont care if we're 7-9 I will not give up hope until the last day of the season and I'm hoping beyond hope that teams lose to other teams to get us in.

Just noticed I've been floating around here for 3 years this month :)

I believe things will get better too, bottom line is TP43, Harrison and Clark and Ike are only a few years from being done. We need to replace these great players real soon and this will be very difficult !

Agreed... important, and difficult, but the Steelers always seem to find "that" guy.

Darren Perry, Brent Alexander, Ryan Clark... there will be another.

Greg Lloyd, Jason Gildon, Joey Porter, James Harrison... there will be another.

Ike... well... the Steelers have not really had great luck with CBs, but they've had good luck: Deshea Townsend, Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen...

Carnell Lake, Troy Polamalu... hmmm... finding another one of those will indeed be very difficult.

Cortez Allen is the only Tomlin guy. Everyone else was found by Cowher or Noll (in Lloyd's case).

Tomlin inherited a Super Bowl roster and I'm afraid in a year or two, it's going to be an 8-8 roster with a franchise QB in his twilight.
