Default Welcome Cardinals Fans

I welcome you to our board.

First off, Yes, I am mean and talk viciously about my favorite team the Steelers, so some of you may have already read some of my "smash their skulls posts"

But really, that's just me having fun. What I'd like to do is explain to you who first come to our board what it is to enter into Steelers Nation.

First to understand our passion, you must understand our sorrow.

Here you go.

1972 the year of the immaculate reception vs Oakland, yes, we all know that play, but did you know the following week we lost to the undefeated Miami Dolphins?

1973 we lost to the Oakland Raiders in the playoffs. Those are historically painful losses.

move through the 70s to the 80s. The darker days. Starting with the drafting of Mark Malone over home town love....Dan Marino. That stuck with us for over a decade. In 1984 Dan Marino beat Mark Malone and the Steelers in the AFC Conference title game, talk about a mistake coming back to haunt you.

1988, Bubby Brister takes over as QB, remember him? He fumbled the game away against Denver and allowed Elway to have the ball late to drive and win and go to the SuperBowl.

1994 Odennell, Loses at home to the San Diego Chargers in the AFC Title game.

1995 13.5 underdogs against the 2 time Champ Dallas Cowboys. We fight and claw and on side kick our way back into the game to get the ball late, and what happens? Neil throws his second, SECOND int to the same guy. We lose.

1996, Curtis Martin of PITT playing for New England chews us up and spits us out as he rushes for what seems like a billion yards and we are out of the playoffs again.

1997, Kordell Stewart, at Denver, AFC TItle Game, We lose, you may remember the highlights of Romanowski smacking his face mask in Kordell's face saying "Dumb Dumb Dumb"

2001, Drew Bledsoe enters the game for an Injuried Tom Brady, the Patriots beat us at home, with a Punt Return Touchdown and a blocked FG return...we miss the SB, again.

2002, Titans beat us on their way to the Super Bowl...sigh

2004, Rookie QB Ben Roethlisberger is schooled by the Pats defense and we lose again at home in the AFC Title game.

So, in order to have passion, and love, you have to have had your heart broken.

We have. We've been the favorite, we've been the underdog, we've been the Good Guys, the Bad Guys, the people you love, the team you love to hate...through it all...we've been here....so understand our history and our passion through our Pain, then you will understand

THE STEELERS NATION!

What a phenomenal post Dino!

I don't think any fan of ANY other team could possibly ever understand the deep passion we hold for our Steelers and why. The Steelers Nation is the largest fanbase in the world and every season - win or lose - it just grows larger and stronger!

I think this is also another way of saying that when the Cardinals lose it ain't so bad. It'll help build character.

Great post. also remember the first 43 years of never winning a thing with coaches missing games for scouting trips, offensive unproduction, the never ending revolivng door of head coaches, drafting and releasing Johnny Unitas, etc.........

Heck, we're just happy to get this far. This is totally uncharted waters for us.

Wasn't it Brady coming in for Bledsoe?

I too use some smash their skull talk over at the Cardinals board. I still can't believe we are in the Superbowl. One more game to shock the world!

I dont ever remember the cardinals losing 4 Home AFC Championship games and a Super Bowl in a 10 year span. Not to mention 2 other playoff runs shut down in home games.
