That would be a fatal knee-jerk reaction, considering that we already have a legit #1 RB on our roster (even though he was benched for a petty personallity conflict with the coaches) and we need to draft early at....nearly every position right now.

Piss-poor thread. Can't you do a better job living up to your namesake, BlazeQUIETLY?
Yeah lackluster defense, can't force turnovers #1 ranking is very misleading.
and are you F*cking kidding me about Mendenhall? yeah the majority of my post is whiny bullshit and I'm spoiled and maybe didnt pay attention to every team in the last 14 years, unlike some people I've had a pretty busy life, can't spend all my time watching football, but Mendenhall is a FAILED EXPERIMENT anyone who thinks he is a #1 running back is delusional, he blows.

It would be easier for you if you would just admit this thread is a dud and kill it-- instead of trying to stick by it.

There are 31 other teams that would love to have a "lackluster" #1 ranked defense.

No, I am not.

I know that you aren't aware of this, since you just started watching the Steelers (and don't try to tell us otherwise--- you already blew your cover on that one), but....

Look at Mendenhall's numbers since drafting him in 2008. Those are #1 RB numbers, especially when you consider the shoddy Oline he has been playing behind, and the "No-FB" scheme he had been running the ball in.

Arians' was known for his uber-predictable running plays-- often ommitting the RB from his formations until the one down when he would call a run.

With all the needs this team has-- you would have them drafting another RB in the 1st round? How are they supposed to rebuild this team if we have to draft a new franchise RB every two or three seasons?

So, I think expectations go up with that. On the other hand, I look at the local Redskins who have a pretty decent tradition and they just hosted their first playoff game since 1999 this season. As for the ice cream, I'm a Baskin Robbins guy but ice cream is ice cream, you're bound to get something good wherever you go.
Disappointed... yes.

Worst Steelers team that I've ever seen... no way.

[NOTE: I have been disappointed forty-one seasons thus far (if you catch my drift: pleased six times). ]

More importantly, INDEED: ice cream is always good... but, in my opinion, it's all about the toppings. When you can mix in black cherries, white cake, & caramel... it goes from good to amaaazing!!!

I'll bet there are a lot of other teams' football fans who wish that their worst team they had ever seen had finished with an 8-8 record.

we are soooo lucky to be so spoiled.

I just had to look that one up because I forgot which one that's from. Some classic lines in there:

My spidey senses tingling
You all have hideous hair!
Hello, Smithers. You're quite good at turning me on.
Now let's forget our troubles with a big bowl of strawberry ice cream.
