Steelers 2007!

Undefeated. : Let's enjoy it while we can. Ben is looking good this year, he must finally be healed from all that he had happen to him last year. Ward is awesome as always, Heath Miller seems to keep getting better, and the new Center is working out. Oh yeah, a new coach too. Here's to 20 years for him.

:

Laurel Hill Crazy - I know you're going through a lot right now, but I hope that for at least a few hours every Sunday you can enjoy our boys.

Living in Bengals country now, it's tough being a Steelers fan. It was a really glum day on our block yesterday when not only our Boys won, but the Bengals lost in a heartbreaker to the 'hawks. Epic, you're right, let's enjoy it while we can!

Thanks for starting a Steelers thread, epic. All is going well on the home front and the Stillers going 3-0 just makes it all better.

I think the defense is better than ever. A lot of folks are saying the competition hasn't been that great but the Steelers have done to poor teams what they are suppose to do. The games have been boring, just the way I like them. Willie Parker now leads the NFL in rushing as does the Steelers, #1 rushing offense and the D is #2 overall.

This week's game against Arizona will be interesting. Tomlin against the 2 guys I thought would now be coaching the Steelers well, one of the two, Whisenhunt and Grimm. They'll be up for the game and by the way the Card almost took one from the Ravens last week, it seems they can motivate their team. It ought to be a lot more exciting then the first three wins but I'll be OK with another blow out.

Tomlin's performance has got everybody in the 'burgh asking, "Bill who?" I'll wait for a few more years before I rank Tomlin up there with Noll and Cowher but the future looks bright. Now if they could just find a way to sign Faneca.

Yes, I agree. We are looking tough. I'm feeling a little out of the loop on news, and try to read the Post Gazette website every day, but at least i've found a hardcore Steelers bar here in Paradise, err, Vegas...

so if any of you ever come to the LV during the season, lemme know and i'll tip a few pitchers back with ya! Place is called

Play of the Day on E. Flamingo

See ya here or on the slopes! Oh, and at the Super Bowl!

Note to Seahawks; when referees through a flag and set your team back, five, ten yards the correct thing to do is make a play and continue the drive. Are we done crying?

That first half was pretty tight, but if you ask me that was a great game considering Polamalu and Ward were out. Nice to see that Ben has a new weapon in Wilson. A bye next week. I'm liking the way these guys look. Who's next?

Santonio Holmes has been his big play receiver and he was a last minute scratch. Casey Hampton, pro bowl nose tackle was out too as was dime package CB McFadden. It was a classic Steelers performance, get a lead, control the clock and wear them down with the run. On to Denver in two weeks.

I just looked at the schedule. We have TWO Monday Night home games! Awesome! Are tickets fr tose games just impossible to get, or should I entertain toughts of finally going to a Steelers game? (I wanna get me onea them Primanti Brothers sandwiches)
post #9 of 28
If you have the cash tickets can be had: Steelers Tickets. I'll watch the games on TV.

Well KevinF, it wasn't your kind of game but it was entertaining. To watch Ray melt down after the game was really delightful but he does have a point, the Ravings will see the three division foes at home. The lack of a running game against them is a bit of a concern but when Ben has a perfect QB rating....

The Steelers certainly benefit from a soft schedule this year and NE is going to be the real test. I'm looking forward to that game but really I'm hoping it will be meaningless and the Steelers roll out a simple game plan. I don't really care if the Steelers beat the Patriots in the regular season.

How 'bout all the smack talk from the Patsies fans? I'm liking it. They seemed so cautious and polite before. I guess the Sox winning another one has finally shaken the Bean Town funk and now the fans feel they can crow without the sky falling.

I love that Ben has all his weapons now and knows how to use them. Maybe not undefeated, but I'm pretty happy with my boys right now.

Any game that involves embarrassing the Ravens is my kind of game. Besides, James Harrison had a night for the ages. Linebackers rule! :

A Pittsburgh Steelers fan is drinking in a Cleveland bar, when he gets a call on his cell phone.He hangs up, grinning from ear to ear, and orders a round of drinks for everybody in the bar, announcing his wife has just given birth to a typical Pittsburgh baby boy weighing 25 pounds. Nobody can believe that any new baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but the Steelers fan just shrugs and replies, That's about average back home, folks, like I said, my boy's a typical Pittsburgh baby boy.

"He's gonna be a Pittsburgh Steelers football player."
Congratulations showered him from all around, amid many exclamations of "WOW!"

One woman actually fainted due to sympathy pains.

Two weeks later, he returns to the bar.
The bartender says, Say, aren't you the father of that typical Pittsburgh baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth?
Everybody's been making bets about how big he'd be in two weeks.

So, how much does he weigh now?

The proud father answers, "Seventeen pounds."

The bartender is puzzled, concerned and a little suspicious. What happened? He already weighed 25 pounds the day he was born!

The Steelers fan father takes a slow swig of his beer, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans into the bartender and proudly says,

"Had him circumcised."
GO STEELERS

Warp Daddy -

Are you implying that Steeler fans are overweight mutants?

Wow. That was ugly. Oh well, a win is a win.

I love watching games like that. Domed stadiums should be outlawed.

Then only outlaws will have domed stadiums...there is where the problem is.

Kevin, I knew you'd like it and I would love it if it were any other team. Allowing a team to hang around courts disaster. It all make me doubtful about how far this team can go. Jacksonville will be a tough game, they look to be playoff bound and so to Cleveland.

Still a lot of football left and as Hoontasan will gleefully remind us the big, bad Patsies are out there along with their smack talkin' swaggering fans too. You and epic must be getting an ear full up there in enemy territory. Just tell 'em to enjoy it while they can 'cause that too must pass.

You better believe it. I'm hoping that Brady will get to see a lot of Polamalu and Foote and the rest of the boys all over his grill. :

Yeah, letting teams hang around isn't the greatest thing, but hey, a win is a win is a win. Besides, the Patsies managed to win three Super Bowls by basically letting teams hang around, hang around, hang around some more, and finally send Vinateirri out to win the game.

My daughter went to that "mud bowl" game last night. Pretty exciting for a kid to go to a Steelers game, but probably the worst conditions and most boring game considering no score until 17 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Its sure beginning to look like Pittsburgh getting the Division and Cleveland gets a wildcard. That should make the hometown feel real comfortable.

Hey Steelers Nation, what's wrong with dem Stillers? The way they're going they could miss post season play. ldrjax should be talking up the Jags play, boy they really kicked butt and out Steelered the Steelers. Jacksonville has long mimicked the Steelers in their punishing physical style on both O and D. Taylor is the best running back not to have been to the Pro Bowl. Perhaps this is the team that will stop the Patriots in the play-offs.

Will the Steelers win the North? Right now I doubt it, Rams tomorrow and finish the season against the Ravings. Cleveland finishes with the Bungles and the 9ers. Steelers look tired and a very short week too. Ravings maybe demoralized after their loss to the Fins but always play the Steelers tough.

It's going down to the wire.

Cleveland is tied, although with 2 head to head losses, Steelers control their destiny. Cleveland plays an easy end of season schedule and have gone 8 of 9 at the end of the season that counts. Irony would put them in the playoffs while the Steelers watch from home. Either way, no North Division Champ goes beyond the second playoff game. I think the wildcard games could be winnable. The AFC West is just as weak.

Not a peep from Stiller Nation? Must be good skiing out there. Here in the (broken) heartland it's 70 degrees.

As for the game, well the regular season was a preview of all the problems that undid them in the play off. Lousy kick coverage, mistakes, offense can't buy a first down to put the game away and defense that can't hold a lead in the end. We've seen it all before except if I told you that Taylor was held to under 100 yards rushing and Ben passed for 300+ yards and 3 TDs.....

Jags better find their running game if they hope to beat the Patsies.

Hey Seahawk fans, some Stiller linebackers were complaining about the officiating and calls that weren't made. That should give you some measure of satisfaction. Your birds crushed my father-in-law's heart. Good luck in Green Bay.

I had actually noticed that this post season, compared to SBXL year, was just like that in general. It's almost as if we all knew what was coming. I mean, no one at my office was riled up on the Friday before the game. No flags on cars, no supermarket displays. It was the most unenthusiastic post season ever.

Although I will say, one thing I like about pro sports is a team kind of gets back what they put out...in other words, if the Steelers approach to the end of their season/post season is half assed, then the fans will be half assed too.

The system works.

We need snow. Or at least cold temps. F this.
