The OP in that thread seems pretty enamored with how the Pats* do things. We'll see how it goes after the SB. Anybody who thinks that one-year rent-a-players (Moss in particular) are going to be happy to continue to hang around NE for what is essentially minimum wage is smoking some really good stuff or drinking the RW&B Kool-Aid, which everyone knows is spiked.

What's a typewad? Tightwad? No they're not. They're not foolish with money.

i actually agree with most of this article. especially since our 2005, 06 and 07 drafts have been just awful.

As opposed to the Pats*, who "never do anything wrong?" The only guy still on their roster from the '07 draft is Meriweather and all he's done is play STs. Sorry to burst your bubble, but we're not going to replicate the '74 draft every year. The poster of that "article" is just another impatient, spoiled dope who bitches because we don't win the damn SB every year - no more, no less. You watch how fast the Pats lose players, key players, due to playing fast and loose in FA this past offseason - too bad for them they don't draft well enough themselves to make up for it.

All the Steelers need is for the Broncos to play the Pats in the playoffs...for some reason, the Broncos make the Pats their biatches...so as long as Denver can get its act together, draw the Pats early, then we don't have to worry about them. :)

In reality, we have 5 rings total. As much as 2 other teams, tied for first. Have 6 AFC Championships and have had heartbreaking losses in the AFC Title games more than I care to count. One play here, one play there and we are even better than our 5 trophies indicate. Still its the toughest league on the planet to win in, and you can't be a dynasty every 8 years. Ask the Niners, the Cowboys, the Packers, how easy it is to return to greatness. Ask the Bills, ask the Rams, ask the Colts...

People complain about stuff they have no idea about and it makes me crazy. Historically speaking, the Steelers are one of the greatest teams in the NFL, with Great Ownership, tradition, and last time I checked, were one of the first kids on the block and have the greatest fans on the planet.

So any nah sayers can go root for the chiefs, or the dolphins, or the raiders or the vikings...you know, those other teams that have had rough times.

IMO, no way Moss sticks around next year with the Pats. He will want one more big contract to end his career and the Pats won't give it to him. He was the big difference in their season this year. When teams shut him down, the games have been closer.

AMEN!!! All Steelers BB's are infected with these retards, unfortunately. The "what have you done for me lately Mr. Rooney" crowd.
