Steeler Football - Page 2

post #31 of 64
Thread Starter 
So you thought I'd finally shut up after last weeks loss to the Broncos? I have no shame and if that is all the Broncs have then they'll be watching the play-offs too. The Steelers still have a hope. As someone pointed out, they're in the AFC North were any mediocre team can win.

The Steelers have a much needed bye and the coaching staff is finally addressing the O-line troubles. If the Steelers can get the running game going then Plax, Ward and El will be back in form too. It all gets down to the O-line, doesn't it always?

Steelers are down but not out yet.

One last thought. That poor Cubs fan did not cost them the their first shot at the Series since '45. How about an error by the shortstop and a bull pen that gave up the winning runs? Chicago and the media owe that fan an apology.

And one more thing. Yankee suck, even if they win it all.

First, to irul. In the words of a famous president that post here, "I feel your pain".......and it feels good.

On to more important matters; DEM STILLERS.

We all know by now that the best team in the NFL is in dire straights mostly because of bad officiating and cheating competitors. [img]tongue.gif[/img] : Today the Black and Gold face the pass happy St. Lousy Rams lead by that kid from Pittsburgh and Central Catholic(Dan Marino's alma mater) Marc Bulger. Though the Steeler D is rated #2 against the pass, most Pixburghers believe it must be the ghost of the smoke (of the mostly dormant steel industry) and mirrors that create that illusion. D is last in the league against opponents in the (Heinz) Red Zone.

Steelers O have problems and they are many. Can't run, can't pass, can't compete. If the Steelers loose today, I promise to stop embarrassing myself here and boring you with by irrelevant pre-game analysis.

Finally, Cowher is taking my advice and, in his word, is "addressing" the problemed o-line and stating Da Bus. Will that help? Gosh, the fans hope so.

The D is also being "addressed" to create more pressure on 3rd. down by going to last year's alignment. Do you care? I'm betting not. Will that slow the Rams? I'm betting not.

Rams big over the lifeless Steelers and my Sundays will once again be free to torture my football orphaned family. That is until ski season begins.

I will always keep the faith in the Steelers... 9 games to go, only 2 games out of first in the AFC North. We aren't mathematically eliminated yet!

Bill Cowher is too good a coach for this slide to continue.

Does Pittsburgh have a football team? I'm headed to the mountains for a family outing. Ok, ok Im recording the game but I'm not going to waste this warm rainy afternoon watching football. Besides, they say the sun may come out this afternoon but not in Seatle.

A friend's snowboarding brother-in-law moved here from Seatle. I asked him what he likes about Western PA? "I like the weather", he said. I lahghed and said that only Seatle has fewer sunny days than Pittsburgh.

No sunshine for the Steelers. Seahawks will shine by 7. :

Well... the Seahawks can't catch, and the Steelers can't tackle. When will it end?

Steelers vs. the Cards? Who cares?

Pittsburgh does have a football team that wins at Heinz Feild.

University of Pittsburgh(21) just beat Virginia Tech(5)

The Big East Championship is in sight with a major Bowl bid.

NFL sucks

Wow, the Steelers won. If only we could play the Cards the rest of the season.

I just got back from a little hike on Laurel Mountain , bow saw in hand. The Goat is just a little cleaner, still needs some work. and 2 feet of snow. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

So do the Steelers.

Wow, Bengals in first tied with the Ravens. Ravens have QB problems so the North is still up for grabs. Will the champs of this division win it with a sub .500 record? Oh the shame of it all. Ride the good vibes Rusty, enjoy the success.

Stillers can move to one game out with a win tonight. I just don't see that happening. 49ers should win at home.

Bengals will take the division and Rusty will be busy with football well into the ski season. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets! Oops, wrong division. At least my Donkeys finally won, and the Chefs (spelling intended) finally lost! [img]smile.gif[/img]

How far have the Steelers fallen? It seems like no team respects their running game or passing game. Defenses keep a extra in the box mostly to rush and disrupt, a lot less cover 2. Why bother when Steeler receivers are dropping so many?

Today, the much dislike Browns. Marvel Smith is back at left tackle and Faneca back to guard. Perhaps this will be the piece to the puzzle that will provide better pass protection and open some running lanes.

I'm going way out on a very thin limb and picking the Steelers.

The truth of it is, if I don't I'll be tossed out of Steeler Nation. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Edit. It's going to be in the 70's today and I don't mean that Bradshaw, et. al. will be back. It means I'm taking the family biking. What happen to winter? Will we have any snow for the ETU? These are far more important questions.

Springhill,

The wind is Blowing hard onshore today. Going to make for some tough passing downfield. Hope the Brownies found a running game. The Browns are believing their own press and have bought into the hype that they really are a good team after they beat the Cardinals. They really think that it was only Kevin Johnson this whole time. This could be interesting.

Nothing like the home team sucking @$$ to put things into perpective, eh Sprinhill? I'm in the same boat. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Well, it's nice to win one, but not so nice to see that the Steelers still suck. I guess the Browns really wanted to lose that one. Bettis looked good at least.

Springhill - what does the Pittsburgh press think of Tommy Maddox now ?

Boy that was ugly, at least the offense but, they took advantage of the turn overs and scored enough to win.

Epic, Tommy had a good game against the '9ers last Monday. It would have been better if his receivers would not have dropped so many. This game was probably his worsed. Pittsburgh media and the fans have not turned on him, yet. Most feel, as I do, that the problem with the Steelers Offense begins with the line. They have been patch together and the right tackle position has been manned by two career back ups. Smith, left tackle, played his first game since being out for most of the season with a pinched nerve in his shoulder.

Steelers are still 2 out and I doubt they'll catch the Bengal or Ravens. Frm what I've seen of the Bengals, they are playing good. Despite the Raven's win, they have QB questions. I still like the Bengal and guess who's up next?

I'm with you about the O-Line, and of course, that was the problem last year too. Yet the press and fans turned against Kordell. It seems like the same problems this year, I wondered if the response would be the same.

Ignore that last post from Ryan. What do you expect from a guy from a city with no NFL team.

Epic, Kordell had 7 years to prove the critics wrong. He had 2 decent seasons and was going no where last year. Tommy came in and had a great year with 2 1000 yard receivers. Kordell never once took responsibility for his bad play. He wouldn't point fingers but he never accepted responsiblity. Tommy has done so already in his 2 years here. The press and fans like that.

Humble pie is hard to swallow with your pride. Gulp!

Go Bengals.

I guess the only consolation is you did it with a bunch of Western Pa. guys on the coaching staff.

I meant to post here that the Steelers would have a big game over the Raiders but I forgot. I know nobody is reading any more and if you are it's just to gloat a little over the Steelers demise this season.

The Bus moved into #9 spot on the all time rushing list, 5 yards from former Steeler Franco Harris at #8.

Hey Rusty Guy, what happened? Maybe the Steelers will help out on the last game of the season.
