Especially because every bandwagon Cowboy fan within a 200 mile radius started calling on the phone howling about it.

I haven't heard from any of them in a long long time. Some of them don't know who the last 3 Cowboy head coaches have been.

I was surprised before the game at how I wasn't as nervous/jittery about this game as I was about the 2 previous games (or any Ravens game). I think it was a comibination of how the media was giving it to the Packers already and not hating the Packers. With that being said, I was pretty down after the loss but it was more because of the way they played and it really seemed like with a decent game they would've won. Just disappointing to see them play that poorly in the big game. Glad we had a chance to win at the end, but even that last "drive" made it a little more upsetting. REALLY would've loved to have shut up the talking heads and Goodell with a win...but still very pleased with how the season went. Can't wait to see what's in store for next season.

LOL!

To be honest, it's the bandwagon idiots that make a tough loss tougher.

The "real" fans dish out a little smack but that's expected and I don't mind it coming from them. But the bandwagoners go on and on and have no idea what they're talking about and it gets to the point where you start seriously weighing your options regarding felony assault.

I'm just pissed that the Steelers let one of the weakest teams to ever make it to a Super Bowl win the damn thing. Some say that Green Bay excelled, and some say Pittsburgh stunk, as the reason the game turned out the way it did.....but I've seen too many stink bomb performances by the Pack to give them much credit at all. They're not the Lions or the Browns, but I never saw anything in them that made me think that they were ever going to win a Lombardi.

To me, it would be like if the '85 Patriots had beaten the Bears......or like the '00 Giants beating the Ravens......or like the '98 Falcons beating the Broncos......or like the '95 Chargers beating the 49ers......or like the '01 Patriots beating the Ra....Oh wait, that really happened, good thing I didn't give a rat's ass about that game at all. Whatever.....it just feels wrong to me. I'll give Rodgers some credit for being highly accurate in the playoffs, but I truly feel the weaker team won this game.....and maybe the weakest winner ever.

are you saying they were the weakest team ever because they were the #6 seed who had to play four games away from home to win the lombardi?

i thought the packers were stronger than both the cardinals and seahawks teams we faced.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion of course, but if you believe Green Bay to be a weak team, in my opinion you don't know football. There isn't a bigger Steelers fan than me, but I wasn't the least bit surprised that we lost.

Yeah, that's got to be one of the worst posts made yet...and that's saying a lot.

The hell is with people tonight?

Green Bay a weak team? That's just...wow. It's amazing how far perception differs from reality sometimes.

Here's an article that compares them directly to the Steelers. It's crazy how closely matched the two teams were.

I have to admit it sucked watching us lose, I honestly believe if Mendonhall doesn't fumble we would've scored , took the lead, and then won the game. But we still have great players and coaches and now it's time to start working and looking forward to next year. I'd love to see the Steelers playing in the Super Bowl in Indy....first round will be on me

Even though this is My first time witnessing The Steelers losing a SB, but I don't feel as if I will be depressed forever. I'm a little depressed, but not to the point where I can't go anywhere. The only thing that bothers me the most is The way The Steelers were treated during this whole season. I really wanted to see Roger Goodell hand us the trophy as pay back. And winning in Cowboys stadium would have made everything that much sweeter. I'm just pissed the steelers weren't rewarded for all that hard work they've been through, but it's a shame they didn't bother to show up. Oh and the fact of hearing people singing Green & Yellow Green & Yellow Green & Yellow. Oh god, just thinking about it makes me sick. Christina Aguilera's messing up the National Anthem caused The Steelers to lose lol
