Angry To all the trolls/bandwagoners/fair weather fans!

Mods, if you feel this should be moved to the blast furnace, go ahead. I am posting it here so it's seen by the people it's intended for.

You people know who you are. You are the entire "the sky is falling" group every time the Steelers don't score a TD, every time the other team gets a first down, every time there is a penalty against the Steelers.

You are the fire the coaching staff people, the bench Ben Roethlisberger people, the "we should have drafted an offensive lineman in the first round" people.

Most of you joined right after the Eagles loss. You are a wolf in sheep's clothing. I don't think you guys are Steelers fans, but fans of other teams coming over here to cause trouble.

And to the longer tenured members, please stop with the entire sky is falling garbage. We aren't going to go 16-0, we aren't going to play every game perfect. The offensive line is not that good, deal with it instead of regurgitating the same stuff on a daily basis.

Bruce Arians is probally not getting fired during the season. A major coaching change like that can really throw a team off. We have won a division title and are currently 3-1 and in the division lead with him at OC. While there may be a change in the offseason, it probally won't happen in season so just deal with it.

Ben Roethlisberger holds onto the ball to long. Yes, at times that'll end up in sacks. That is also why he threw a TD pass to Santonio Holmes last night. It's high risk, high reward...but I'll take the risk as long as we get plenty of the reward. Just get used to it, that's the way it's going to be.

You're right!! HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!!!! Man, I feel better and guess what Mr. Fan Policeman, it worked. All the problems just magically went away.

Now where is that koolaid?

Pointing out problems is one thing. Outright giving up before HALFTIME, like you did last night, is entirely another.

How's that crow tasting?

I also find it absolutely amazing the number of "fans" who show up during the gameday thread when the team is losing, and then you never hear from them again when they're winning. It happens as sure as the sun comes up in the morning. I can think of at least 5 newbies last night who came in, dropped their little pearls of wisdom, and then went silent once the game turned around.

Constructive criticism of the team when it's not playing well is one thing, bitching like a spoiled teenage girl is another. Guess which group you fall into, bud?

I'm not drinking any koolaid....it's iced tea.

And I realize that this team has some problems. However, I don't want to sift through pages upon pages of fire Arians, bench Ben, fire Tomlin posts after every game...and I am pretty sure that most of the people here don't want to do the same thing either.

I realize this team has some holes. However, those holes aren't going to get changed overnight. Hell, we're stuck with a rather crappy offensive line probally the rest of the season unless some people (aka backups) step up and make the line better. There is nobody we can sign who is a free agent that's going to imrove this line. There isn't a guy I believe we can get in a trade to improve this line. It needs rebuilt, and that'll take some time.

Yes, Ben holds on to the ball too long, like I said in my original post. However, if you want him to throw it away every single time, then we're gonna lose out on a good number of big plays and punt the ball away. Like I said before, it's high rist/high reward but much of the time it's worth it because of the reward.

Don't jump in the fans for booing and being critical. The team WAS NOT playing well. In Pittsburgh, if you suck, you're gonna hear it. The first half last night was probably the worst I've ever seen the Steelers play at home in a long time. The fans let them have it.

Ben stepped up as a leader and got pissed at the team in the locker room. Sure enough, it worked.

Giving up is a different story.

I seriously don't understand why everybodies so worried anyways, I mean the last 2 weeks we have played 2 of the best D's in the NFL (and the Eagles in their home) and I mean we hate the Ravens but c-mon now, their D' is awesome and they send everything but the kitchen sink on every down......coming away after being down 13-3 late in the 3rd quarter with a win last night to me was something to be said about this team (even more so when we were down to our 4th RB).......

We'll have to agree to disagree on the hometown fans booing, Ed. I remember very well the games at TRS back in the 70's and 80's and it was rare you ever heard a boo from anyone, even when the team didn't play well. It's these new-aged spoiled Steelers "fans" that I have a problem with. Probably three quarters of them didn't live through the lean years in the 80's and early 90's before Cowher came on board and turned things around, or are bandwagon jumpers who hopped on when we got our 5th ring in 2005.

I have no problem at all with constructive criticism, which is what Ben issued in the locker room at the half. It is the destructive criticism and unrelentless bashing and "fed up" bullshit that I do have a problem with. If you're going to call yourself a Steelers fan, damn it, BELIEVE IN THEM!!
