Whether or not that miracle of them getting into the playoffs will occur or not, this team has started turning itself around and has played some darned good football - consistently - in those 3 wins. We stumbled and fell in the game against the Rats, most definitely, but we did win convincingly over the Saints, another viable playoff contender. While I would love to see the Steelers defy the odds and slide into the playoffs this season, if they don't, it's not the end of the world. God knows this franchise and so many of our players (and our coaching staff) have given us plenty to cheer about over the past decade +. We're darned privileged to be able to call ourselves fans of such a classy and successful organization.

My point here is this. I've noticed some posts around here in the past several weeks which would make the grim reaper proud. Please don't be killjoys - let us enjoy this streak our Steelers are currently on and accentuate the positives in these victories instead of nitpicking at the negatives. Our guys need us right now to be behind them 100%, no matter how this season turns out.
Great post!! It just seems like everybody gave up on the Steelers when they lost the Ravens or even before that, but I didn't and I never will. You can't give up on your team and expect them to win without the best fans in the national football league rooting for them. The Steelers play with heart and don't give up, so us fans should cheer with heart and stop giving up when one person does something every so slightly wrong.

Yesterday, while enjoying the game at a Cincinnati Steeler bar, Flood and I had the pleasure of talking to a reporter that was doing a story on Steeler fans in Cinci. He was amazed at all of us cheering loudly and exuberantly every time our Steelers made a big play. Every time they scored, the entire bar started cheering "Here We Go Steelers , Here We Go!!" Even though we many not make the playoffs, he was blown away by the way we were cheering as if it WAS a playoff game. I told him that's just the way Steeler fans are......win or lose, it's STEELER FOOTBALL! You see in Cinci, if the Bengals are out of the race, nobody cares anymore. But now they are in again, so out come the bandwagon fans. If they lose (errr.....I mean when they lose) tonight.......they won't call themselves fans anymore.

The moral of the story is......Don't bungle out on the Steelers!!!

I was jumping and screaming yesterday too!! I lost part of my voice but hey who cares it's the Pittsburgh Steelers!! Your brother sounds like my dad. I went to my 1st Steeler game on their season opener and my dad sat there like a lump on a log at the game and he also gives up on them if they are down by 1 point.

Hold on. People aren't giving up. Some of us just realized early on that a SB run was not a possibility this season.
