I will always hate the Packers. It would still suck if we lost to a team that was obviously better but that Packer team was not the better team. They had refs not calling holding on the Pack, but forget that. We had a chance to win and Ben choked big time.

ESPN Sports Guy Bill Simmons has what he calls the 5 year rule - you cannot get really upset about a loss within 5 years of winning a championship

That rule would not have been in effect for me if the Steelers would have blown the Super Bowl to Arizona 2 years ago, but this loss was not nearly as distressing as the AFC championship game losses under Cowher or losing SB XXX to Dallas For me the worst loss ever was the 76 team losing to the Raiders in the AFC championship after coming back from a 1-4 start and not having Bleier or Harris.

This team over achieved given all the offseason issues + injuries and Green Bay was a team I do not dislike as well as the superior team going into the game. So the loss is not one I could not believe occurred.

A 6-2 record in Super Bowls certainly is 2 losses more than I would prefer but it certainly beats being 0-4 like the Vikings and Bills

Some of you guys really crack me up .... I came around and started to hang out when Suisham joined your team and it has been pretty kool to enjoy being around a winning team. As a long time Lions and Leaf fan you can only imagine my suffering. You all need to kick back and appreciate being SUPPORTERS of the best football franchise in NFL history .... later

I don't know but I feel great about winning XL and XLIII a lot more now (not that I didn't before).

Ummm...have you read most of the thread? The majority are kicking back and enjoying being Steelers fans despite the loss. It's disappointing, but nearly everyone has taken the loss in stride, given kudos to the Packers and are moving on to next season.

I'm still a little bummed but I'm so proud of them. Having the other wins makes it better too. Plus I know my team is gonna be right back in it for another shot at the trophy!

i took it very well, even the girlfriend said i did... i was dissapointed in the lose but when you turn the ball over 3times and to still have a chance it hurts

there is some part side
at least your not a bills, browns, bengals, lions... and the list goes on of fans...your a fan of a 6x time super bowl champion team..


i've only been alive for the 2 wins and 2 lose which sucks but they will be back, and if the worse thing in my life right now is the steelers winning the afc north, and afc championship and losing a close game (self enflicted) super bowl, then then the franchise and myself are doing just fine


plus.. when most people didnt even think they were going to make the playoffs, its hard to be mad

You are a damn cry baby, and you're not even an intelligent one. If you're going to be a cry baby at least know what you're talking about....but nope.
