Default Let's remember

Despite how poorly our boys played this year, the fact that we are still here and talking about them means something. We are the best fans in the NFL, plain and simple.

A lot of people will have you believe thatgriping about your team makes you a bad fan, I believe the opposite, our guys performed poorly this year, and we have the right to express out opinion. If we were bandwagon fans, we simply would not care. The next couple years are going to be a little bit different, with the loss of Cowher power and all, but we will get through it, we always have.

I don't care if it takes another 26 years for us to hoist that trophy, I won't stop cheering, and/or voicing my displeasure. Lets just remember to represent ourselves as Steeler fans, and do the best we can. Now is not the time to run away, like I am sure plenty of poeple will do.

OK, let's just make one thing clear, right now - "griping" about your team does NOT make you a bad or bandwagon fan, and not one person here or anywhere else has EVER said that. But when you give up on your team or declare the season "over" when the season is barely 5 weeks old, you should expect to get called out for it and be called a bad or bandwagon fan. Now I know you never did that, Stillers, but still, I'm compelled to clarify this long-standing belief around here hopefully once and for all.

I agree with that comment. The core of Raider Nation are hard core fans, and so are Bears fans. But Steeler fans top them all.

I have to admit that I am pleasantly surprised at the overall sane reaction to the realization today once and for all that our Steelers are going home after next Sunday. Kudos to all of you who, despite the natural feeling of frustration at the way our season turned out, have stayed the course and continue to believe that the black and gold will most definitely be back in the hunt next season!

Let's shout it to the world. And a one-a and a two-a and a three -a...........

The Steelers One for the Thumb wasn't a fluke - the 2006 season was. Look out Loretta - the Pittsburgh Steelers will be a force to be reckoned with again - - -sooner than you think!
