Default nice pick Cowah

I'm preety sick about all this business about the steelers getting no repsect. What have they accomplished under Bill Cower? In Fact since 1980 the steelers have accomplished nothing. Pats by 10 gauranteed.

I'd also like to dispel some myths:

Myth No. 1: The pittsburg rushing offense is much better that the Pats

Pit Avg 154 YPG with 4.0 YPA

NE Avg 133 YPG with 4.1 YPA

Myth No.2 Steeler's OL is much better that PATS (Partly discredited above)

NE allowed 26 sacks out of 485 attempts

Pitt allowed 36 sacks out 358 attempts

NE forced 45 sacks

and PIT forced 41.



looks like it will Big Ben eating dirt.

Sadly, you're right. Our team has history of not being able to win big games since our run back in the dark ages. I wish I could come back at you with a better retort! Hopefully, this will finally be our year? As I had mentioned in an earlier post though, I'm not very confident.

Your world champ patsies look formidable.

Go Steelers!!

Yeesh, when you look at it in black and white, the patsies do look like they have the edge. Help me out fellow fans, are we in trouble or what?

No Joke compadre...I'm just a pragmatist I guess. Blind faith has resulted in much pain with the Steelers. I'm trying to be objective is all.

Though, on the bright side, Cowher has so far been able to keep this team's collective mouth quiet.

Rember in 2001-2002 when word leaked that we'd made reservations for New Orleans prior to winning anything? Ouch.

Or when Kordell shot his trap off about the best team not always winning (after his dreadful performance in the AFCC game) then having to open the next season on a Monday night, in Foxboro, watch the pats raise the SB banner, then getting spanked by the champs yet again. That was humiliating for this steeler fan.

Well I think Any Steeler fan feels your pain, we all go through it, but as a Fan I take the good with the bad and right now its ALL GOOD, and how can anyone say Coach Cowher has done nothing in years, how many teams have gone 15-1, and he turns all his teams into a playoff contenders?? I dont mean to start any fights between fellow Steelers fans, but I just get frustrated with all the media saying we have no chance this Sunday and even more so when our own fans dont think so>:(

Stats don't win games. The team with the most points. As this week has proved in the media, the Steelers and Patriots match up well, as definately the two best AFC teams, and it is going to be a bloody, cold battle at Heinz.

Let's get this game going!

I can't wait till after the playoffs when NE fans leave this board...ahem...

?First, its guaranteed not gauranteed. From dictionary.com:

guar?an?tee ? ?( P ) ?Pronunciation Key ?(grn-t)
n.
Something that assures a particular outcome or condition:

?Second, the OL is better than ours blah, blah, blah.
If you are saying that by average per rush you are better, then, uh, okay by .1 yards. ?HOWEVER, we rushed the ball 618 times to your 524, or 38.6 times a game to your 32.8. ?That gives us...uh carry the two...roughly 2464 rushing yards to your 2134(Thats three of them there football fields son) ?But since you like averages, that gives us an average of 154 rushing yards a game to your 133. ?So what does this mean? ?When push comes to shove we run not cause we need to, but because we want to. ?We rushed for 134 first downs to your 120 firsts on the ground. ?So when the all trusted measure of moving the chains comes to vote we will hang one lantern in your north church cause we are coming by land.

?Third, If you are saying that we gave up more sacks than you fine. ?But I don't think our O-line forces sacks the last time I checked. ?Besides sacks are a measure of pass blocking and son, pass blocking doesn't get you two pro-bowlers on the same line. ?No one sends you to Hawaii because you can trot backwards against the spin move. ?They send you because you take on the two DL's and free up Krieder to lay a lick on the EA pretty boy allowing a old vet like Bettis to run for 100 yards. ?That is what pays the bills.

?Fourth, thanks for giving this board another reason to show why it is quickly becoming not only the home for the best fans, but the smartest.
