Default Steelers vs. Patriots

The Steelers have obviously established themselves as one of the top teams of this decade. But dissappointing playoff losses to the Patriots leave questions about their dominance. Without a playoff victory over a Brady led Patriot team can the Steelers be called the team of decade?

If we win it again this year, we are the team of the decade.

Everything the Patriots did is tainted by the cheating allegations...and their best team didn't even win the SB.

I think the case could be made we are now, regardless of what happens this year. Not trying to jump on you here, but the Patriots were not alledged to have cheated, it was proven they did.

No matter what you or I think, there is never going to be any consesus on this issue. Everybody has their own opinion and you can't even get people to agree on replay tapes that get looked at over and over again.

If we are successful in our defense of the Super Bowl this year, that will be good enough for me. The Steelers are my TEAM OF A LIFETIME>

As much as it pains me to say it, in my mind we have to win another Super Bowl and possibly beat the Patriots along the way to surpass them as team of the decade. Cheating or not, you can't change it; 3 > 2.

3 > 2, but 2 > 3*

Fixed it for ya...

In all seriousness, unfortunatly you are right. Its sickening to see that even after spygate the Pats are still the media darling. But lets also not forget we destroyed them last year on our way to winning a superbowl 33-10....

I used 2 have tons of respect 4 the Pats. Up until I learned those SOBs were actually nothing but mere cheaters. They're not SB winners, & I hate em.

To answer the question ... No.

That is really the only monkey on the back that the Steelers can't get off.

A Tom Brady Patriots team has pretty much whooped us. I was so disappointed last year when I still had a sour taste in my mouth after beating them that bad.

Steelers-Patriots 2010 AFC championship game is what I'm hoping for, the game would either be a horrible blowout or epic.
But ya, *3-2,
with a lot of the footage found specific footage from our games

and the ways that we lost to them

... how there are even quotes from steeler players about how they thought "they knew every play we were running it seemed like" "one step ahead of us the whole time like they knew what we were doing" etc.

It's awesome that everyone thinks they are cheaters.

I'm just going to qoute myself from another thread earlier today regading this subject.

Quote:
I could care less who the team of the decade is. Win or lose this year the Pats can have that title. The Steelers' Organization has evolved beyond a mere team of a decade battle. We have the best regular season record since the merger and have won the most Super Bowls.

Enjoy your little pursuit of team of the decade Pats' fans. We are waiting far beyond you.
