This not scoring and not embarrassing your opponent argument is crazy to me. If you go for a fake FG when your up 20 something I would agree, but just because you're up doesn't mean you shouldn't score. You play 60 min and if they stop you they stop you, if they don't it's not your problem.

They're paid professionals not ankle biters who's feelings might get hurt and parents go complain to the league.

I think the Pats try to score because it is what they do. I don't think they are trying to rub it in - its just what they do.
I agree with this! Far too many times you see teams making come backs because teams like our Steelers decide to play conservative and end up losing! Fock that, full throttle til the end!

I CANT STAND the cheats but must admit, the envy bug gets the best of me at times! I hope its eating our players and coaching staff as well........Come on fellas, wake the fock up and show the world we are a championship caliber team!!!!!!!!!!!

the funny thing is - the Steelers don't even need to be a top 3-5 offense in the league, and averaging 30+ to win the big one. If the offense can Score 3 TDs and a couple of field goals, that's all it really takes. The physicality on D and TOP on O(when they feel like showing up) is a great equalizer, and slows the game down. What does 24-27 points per game from the O, winning TOP and not turning the ball over on a consistent basis and just a solid bend but don't break D sound?

Another thing I commonly hear from Steelers fans is that players will get hurt if they are left in the game to "run up" the score. So they can't get hurt at any other time in the game? Really? Wow! All these injuries have happened because the Steelers are being classless! How dare the offense puts up 10 points against KC! Had they only put up 7 points Ben wouldn't have gotten hurt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why can't our "Offense", and YES, you especially, BEN, NOT be the pathetic useless bums that they have been this last Sunday.
We would have been much better off playing Charlie Batch ! -remeber him?! -that old fish that beat the RATBIRDS', becuase well, Ben couldn't ?!
Geezus, our "O" single-handedly EMPTIED the Pittsburgh stadium. by the 3rd Quarter. ! Forget the "team" loss crap, this was a FAIL BEN, with a FAIL Offense, big time.
If that doesn't say what?, I dunno.

Ok, now we have the Cowboys, comon' pick it up already.

Alright. That's it then. I'm getting so sick and tired of hearing about the Patriots, the Texans, the Broncos. Who do you play for? WHAT TEAM ARE YOU ON!? That's right. You are the Pittsburgh Steelers. They say the Patriots are the best - well, I say different. You better come together as a team, RIGHT NOW, and figure this thing out.

Perhaps good teams get better after 12 weeks of football have passed. Not a very good point you're making.

Yea, and look at the Patriots now. They just destroyed the Texans. The Steelers looked like the class of the AFC going into Cincy and NY, pulling out mentally tough games. Now look at them. Past games mean squat.
