I woke up this morning thinking what a great job we did to come back. What a great job we did to overcome our INT's. I think we played well enough to win. And wow that Hines Ward.....speechless! Looking forward to next year!

Just wanted to pop on here and say what a class organization you have, along with with probably the best fans in the league. A few of my friends were at the game last night, and what a game. What was striking , was that even though the Steelers suffered a truly sickening loss, your fans that were in my friends section(sorry don't know which one), were the epitome of what supporting your team to the end should be and had enough class, when it was all over, to wish our team all the best next week. That , coupled with watching Roethlisberger patiently wait until Garrard had finished his interview, to congratulate him. You just don't hear or see that type of stuff enough anymore.

Anyway, with all that said, words probably can't get rid of the knots that are in your stomachs this morning, but I felt compelled to come on here and thank you on behalf of my friends that were at Heinz field last night and I just hope that our fans( keyboard warriors included) and players can emulate the sportsmanship that was on display last night in Pittsburgh. Good luck next year and nothing but respect from this Jags fan.

Globally, a very frustrating season, in my eyes.

I hope they fix the numerous deficiencies in the roster via FA and a solid draft and start the next season with a new field cause that brownish thing they call grass looked once again crappy last night. The field hadn't seen a game for what, 3 weeks, during which it received more care than a patient in ICU and it was still more dirt and mud than anything else. Oh and if these field conditions help our game,like some of you think, I would hate to see what it'd be if it did not.

Very nice and classy of you. Thank you for taking the time to come say hi and share that with us.

However, I am hoping next year we have reason to come over to your boards to bolster your spirits after a loss!

I feel the exact same way I felt last night.

We have a great core going into the future. We have some extreme talent on both sides of the ball. We have some things we have to fix. Let's get into the offseason and fix them!

I am going to enjoy the heck out of my spring and summer. This offseason won't be as bad, because I don't have that awful taste in my mouth from an 8-8 season after a SB.

Thank you for the very classy post and I wish the Jags well next week and beyond. I'm over the sadness and hurt from last night and am looking forward to the draft, FA and heading up to Latrobe for camp in July!

My head hurts.



Thanks Strangeirish. Watched the game with a couple of jag fans last night. nailbiter for both of us. Likewise,jags fans are a classy gang. Any game that is decided in the last minute is brutal on the nerves.

Only thing I have to look forward to now is a team to knock off the patriots. Any team. I dont care if they come from Upper OR Lower Slobovia. Just beat the cheatriots so I can gain some respect again for the NFL. The thought of having to watch TV ads all season long with metro sexual tom brady or bill belicheat is too much for me to stomach.
Cheaters never prosper... We shall see.

Default Re: The Morning After . . . . .

thx for a good post hometown gal.like others i wondered why i keep coming on here reading all the negative posts ie we lose a game and peeps want ben out batch in etc etc etc etc. it is after all a game and yes im dissapointed if we lose for a bit but i would never go against the steelers, like some on here .they cant be true fans cos u gotta take the rough with the smooth (i should know im a manchester city fan as well !!city till i die!)like others that last series, when i thought we should have kept passing short was annoying but u CANT fault the teams effort and the quotes on the official pittsburgh site said a lot about gerrards long run at the end and on replaying it looked like a LOT of holding! well heres to next year and all the best to you all :)
