Default The real meaning of true fans

I think that in moments like this we see who are bandwagonners and who are real fans.

Of course I didnt like the way we played in the 2nd half.

But a real fan is not someone who will support the team only when they win and bash them when they lose.

A real fan is someone who will support the team even if the team is 0-16.

Steelers forever

Here we go

I respectfully disagree. If your team goes winless and you point out their flaws and demand change, that just makes you not stupid.

Calling out shortcomings of your favorite team doesn't make you a bandwagoner. It's just a part of the passion you have for the team.

Hi fellow Steelerís fans, this is my first post, long time Steeler fan from one of the bigger cities of the Steeler Nation Ö Mexico City.

I have some thoughts throughout 3 games.

1.-The team needs to keep pushing the pedal on the offensive side of the ball for all 4 quarters. Keep on going with the no-huddle offense, this year Iíve noticed an improvement in the OL performance.

2.- Try to change the pass-rush scheme a little, looks like the opposite teams have learned how to combat Silverback and Woodley without having Troy backing them up.

3.- The officials no calling for holding on the pass rushers must be addressed by the FO with R. Goodell, the no calls are piling up like crazy.

4.- If the Steelers are now a pass happy team, so be it, I can live without Cowher ball, lol

5.- Execute and play with passion. I noticed the team playing with no passion in the past 2 games, specially in 4th qts.

6.- Looks like the good ole FWP has the days numbered, despite of todayís performance, but what do I know ?

7.- Frank Summers is not ready yet, he needs one more year to learn the playbook , gain some weight and improve his blocking technique.

8.- Mike Wallace has been a great addition so far, I think he will win the 3rd. WR spot over Limas Sweed.

9.- Itís ok to be pissed by losing to the Bears and the Bungles, but come on, letís keep the faith, there are thirteen games left in the regular season, the sky isnít falling.

10.- I will let the FO takes care about the offensive coordinators and coaches, I trust in their decisions.

Go Steelers !!!

I've been around for 6, and several real bad years. I've also see starts worse than this by several very good teams. We will be fine.

If I can make it through the Cliff Stoudt years, I can make it through this.

There is no other team than the Steelers. I try to remain positive to the bitter end every single season. I go in thinking we will never lose a game. I have been a diehard fan since about 1969 and never rooted for other teams in all that time even in the 1990s. I lived through Cliff Stoudt, Mark Malone, Bubby Brister, Kordell Stewart, Neil Odonnell, Tommy Maddox, etc and still rooted for them through thick and thin. This team is ten times better than any of those 90s teams despite all the negative talk. Teams lose games. Get used to it. It will not change. Take that from someone who has been following the Steelers for most of his life. BTW, it will be much better on your blood pressure if you don't lose any sleep when your favorite team loses. I had to learn that the hard way.

Same here, i am also one of the lucky ones to have seen all 6 SB victories. How many other fans of other teams can say that, Hmmmm i gonna guess none!

We all take losses hard, especially when it's to a team that we're clearly better than.

For whatever it's worth, while the Bungholes are celebrating their stroke of luck, no one on our side of the fence is resting easy until the season is over. Pittsburgh starting off 1-2 just means that we don't have to sweat bullets if we come up short against New England next week, or if we drop one of our games head up. Loooongg way to go before this season is over.
