Arrow Steeler fans, most brutal on QB's?

Why is it that as far as the quarterback position in Pittsburgh there are so many fair weather fans? If the QB is doing well everyone loves him, if he makes one little mistake, "bench him" put in the no. 2? Im not specifially talking about Ben, Im talking about the QB position in general with Pittsburgh. Yes, I know, other teams' fans are wicked with their QBs' too, it just seems that Pittsburgh fans are the most brutal.

Your thoughts

Na i see it from all fans from all teams perspectives. I mean most people don't mean the rude comments, we all love our QB to death it just gets frustrating when they have a bad game def. at the level Ben should be playing speaking he is our 102 million dollar QB.

QB's are under more scrutiny than any other player, so it's just natural.

Some people seem to be resentlful of the fact that we'll never be a "fantasy stat", finesse football team. They think our QB's have to have those glamour stats that Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have. Me, I'll take the shove the football down their throats, smashem' bashem', the hell with "style points" Steelers football any day. It's not always pretty, but it's always fun!

Without question. And that's despite the cyber ass-whoopin' Tony Homo is taking right now from the Cowgirls fans.

My opinion the Steelers will be a fantasy powerhouse if we get the O-line gelling again. In my eyes good runningbacks are like gold. QB's that score 25+ are a dime a dozen.

you sure about that one? there are prime example of the opposite on this board

Heck, I haven't been a steelers fan as long as most but I know many are spoiled, especally when it comes to the quarterback

Brual? yes. Most brutal? That's debatable

Your thoughts
Cause the Pirates suck, there is no Basketball and no one likes hockey so the Steelers is all there is and it's nerve-wrecking to see the QB struggle, even if it is only for 1 game? I'm just guessing, I'm from NY. Most of my friends are Giant fans and it took most of them 2 1/2 years to say Eli was a bust. If Pittsburgh would've drafted Eli, he would've been dead after 4 games.

Ben sure has sucked in a few games this year, but I haven't heard many people who I honestly believe think he needs to go. He's in a slump, but he's still the best guy we've had at QB for 20 years and anyone with half a brain knows it.

I think maybe after dealing with Bubby Brister, Kordell Stewart and Maddox all in a row, it's only natural if the fans are a little jumpy about the QB.

Um, Philly?

Remember "A.J. Feely over Donovan McNabb?"

No, we're not the toughest on QBs.
