Suppose Jackie Smith catches that Staubach bullet in Super Bowl 13. Suppose Franco was back a few inches on the Immaculate Reception. Would the Steelers be the team of the 70's?

The Steelers have been doing things right for years. The problem is that they've been falling short and haven't had as many breaks as the Pats. To be a dynasty in the NFL, you need skill, talent, planning, and quite a bit of luck. And when the Patriots dynasty eventually crumbles and breaks into tiny pieces, will they suddenly be doing everything wrong?
No matter what spin you put on it, the Patsies win consistently. Will they fall apart? Maybe but neither you nor I know that.

I do know that they traded a 4th round pick for Randy Moss somehow and what was the Steelers big answer to help Ben?? Drafted another TE they don't use.

Yep, you're the one second-guessing everything the FO and the coaching staff does, but I'm the know-it-all. Whatever. You respect cheaters? Sorry, but I don't. They won a 4th one? When? But you're right, it really sucks to be a Steelers fan - I don't know what I've been thinking the last 30+ years.

So do we. Once again, the difference here is that the Pats have gotten all the way a few times, the Steelers have just once.

Randy Moss is a rental for the Patriots and nothing more. He won't be there next year. We're talking about a LONG-TERM answer at WR. Randy isn't it. And what makes you assume that if we brought Randy here to Pittsburgh, he'd give us the same production? Hell, what would make you assume he'd be happy here?

You are free to jump off the bandwagon any time. Your Patriot envy is sickening.

Yep, never mind that Moss' one-year rent-a-player contract is due for expiration very soon. You really think he's gonna continue to play for relative peanuts? Good luck with that. And if you're going to criticize the way the Steelers draft, at least point out that the only '07 draftee still on the Pats' roster is Meriweather. But they have it all figured out, and our FO is clueless.
