Default AFC championship game, favorite and least favorite memories?

They're playing our song without us today. Or to put it in a better way, the Steelers more than any other team are the AFC title game. It's our legacy, our DNA, this is a Sunday as Steelers fans we more or less expect to still be relevant. http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=47187

Regardless, this is one of those years where it just wasn't our turn. ( for reasons discussed ad-naseum elsewhere in these forums.) So rather than allow todays participants to occupy our every thought let's make it about us again!

So of the Steelers 14 AFC title game appearances...

What was your favorite win?

The most excruciating loss?

Your favorite moment, game relevant?

Your worst moment, game relevant?

Now if you care to go further


Your favorite moment, from a personal perspective?

Your least favorite moment, personal perspective?

Again, just because we're not playing today is no reason not to make it all about us!




I'll fill in my answers later.

What was your favorite win? I'm old. 1974 when we beat the Raiders in Oakland. I'd love to find that game on DVD.

The most excruciating loss? 2001 Patriots.

Your favorite moment, game relevant? Troy's interception to seal it last year.

Your worst moment, game relevant? Stinking Patriot punt return in 2001.

Now if you care to go further


Your favorite moment, from a personal perspective? Watching the clock tick down to zero, sitting next to my 12 year old son. (at the time, he's 13 now)

Your least favorite moment, personal perspective?Losing $50 buck on the 2001 game to my old Air Force buddy Jim.

The San Diego loss was crushing to me. I walked home from my friends house (about 4 miles) because I didn't want to interact with any other humans.

DENNIS GIBSON!!!!!!!!

Conversely the win against the Colts the next year was that much sweeter....still should have won the SB though.

Neil O'Donnell!!!!

Oh god yes, that one was horrific! :doh :I was on the road that game, when I left Laurel Race track the Steelers had a double digit lead, and then as drove on the game gradually slipped away. I'm lucky I didn't ditch the van that day, as pissed as I was.

What was your favorite win? 2009 AFC Championship Game vs. Baltimore(I was in attendance for that game)

The most excruciating loss?2001 & 2004 AFC Championship Games vs. Patriots(I felt the Steelers should have won both times)

Your favorite moment, game relevant? Troy's INT

Your worst moment, game relevant? Everything that went wrong in the 2 losses to the Pats

Your favorite moment, from a personal perspective? Being in attendance for last year's AFCCG and being among the fans in the stands who started cheering to Here We Go.

Your least favorite moment, personal perspective? See Worst Moment

Favorite moments : Watching Cowher hoist the AFC Championship trophy...twice.


LEAST favorite : Watching Romanowski give Kordell the "DUH" treatment after an errant pass.

Worse yet, the fact that none of Kordell's teammates smacked the punk down.

The one thing that really sticks out in my mind after 30+ years was Mean Joe stuffing Earl Campbell for a loss on 3rd and short in the '79 AFCCG.

In hindsight, you are quite correct on that one. Although I must admit, I was probably one of the last remaining supporters of Kordell, almost to the bitter end.










LONG LIVE BIG BEN !!

Best memory- last year, Troys pick six to seal the deal.

Worst memory- there are many but the one that sticks out the most is that Chargers game. We were just so dominant in that game but still found a way to lose. And to top it off, the way they stopped us on the last play of that game.
