I agree a little with you but this whole game is played on emotions. If the Chiefs made that 2 point conversion people would say great job by Herm. OT is 50/50 if you dont win the toss you lose. 2pt. conversion is 50/50 also to me

I agree but as fans we want are team to win every week but thats not possible. We are 6-3 so far I would have taken that record before the season started.

Yep, ya got that right. Those who act as if they can't lose ever probably didn't go through the 1980's as most members of this board did, or in my case the present day 1991, 92, 1998, 1999, 2003, and 2006 seasons.

Be glad you didn't have to be around for the 80's teams. Those teams made Kordell look good.

Yep. You got that right. I'm just tired of people acting like brats after losses.

Angry Re: Steelers vs. Colts Game Day Thread 11/09/08

Keys to success:

-Bench Roethlisberger

-Start Gary Coleman (Leftwich) until Big Ben gets his act together and gets healthy

-Fire Bruce Arians

-Get a new offensive line

-DON'T STOP BLITZING!!! We blitzed, Manning got frustrated and unraveled. We sat back, and he picked us apart!

Thankfully, we are 6-3 having beat the Ratbirds. I am just worried if we don't get our O-line together and stop giving up stupid interceptions, we are going to be in for a rough time.

I just love when these fans come out of the woodwork.

Sure, Ben probably shouldn't have played, but again, you also have to consider a risk/reward at times.

Bench Ben , fire arians, Troy will never return to his old form!! The sky is falling.

Guys, don't worry. Atleast one of the INT's indeed was Ben's fault. The man is injured. 6-3.. What is better 6-3 or 5-4 or even 1-8?

I'd rather be 6-3 then what some teams are right now.

So you think it is a smart decision to play an injured franchise quarterback who keeps re-injuring old injuries when you have a backup that has proven himself worthy? Is it worth risking more (serious) injuries to your franchise quarterback in a game that isn't a must win?
