i rarely pity the steelers, but wow that was a hard game to watch. that game was like watching two zombies try to eat each other. sloppy plays and mistakes on both sides of the ball, but ultimately Big Ben outstupided Cincy with another game-losing turnover. Must suck to be a Steelers forum mod today.

To bring up an old joke...


A man goes to the Pittsburgh Steeler ticket office and inquires about purchasing
play-off tickets. The ticket teller replies that there weren't any tickets
for sale because the Steelers did not make it to the play-offs.
The following day the same man goes to the Pittsburgh Steeler ticket office and
inquires about purchasing Steeler play-off tickets. The ticket teller politely
replies that there weren't any tickets for sale because the Steelers did not
make it to the play-offs.

This goes on for an entire week. The man goes to the Steeler ticket office
inquiring about play-off tickets and the teller says none are for sale
because the Steelers did not make it to the play-offs.

Another week of this goes by and the man still is asking the ticket teller
about Steeler play-off tickets. Finally the ticket teller in a loud voice
says, I'VE TOLD YOU FOR THE LAST 2 WEEKS THERE WERE NOT ANY TICKETS
AVAILABLE BECAUSE THE STEELERS DID NOT MAKE THE PLAY-OFFS.

The man replied, "I know. I drive all the way from Baltimore just to hear
you say that!”

By the way, you should have heard the ROAR at the stadium when Cincy won. We saw the end of the game live on the big screens.

Steeler trolls are the worst. I'm glad they aren't in the playoffs and got beat by the puddy cats. I get a warm feeling now reading the Steeler message boards as they are in full panic mode blaming Tomlin, Haley and Ben. For all the problems we had this season, at least we can say we over came our problems, the squeelers can't say the same. lol

How sweet was it that Big Ben was the goat in this huge game for them? They are not used to that in Pittsburgh :)

And don't fool yourself, they can't stand the fact that we were the one who won the division, because if we would have lost today - that whole town would have been rooting for the Bengals next week.

Time for the Steelers to draft a new quarterback. Seriously. Their backups are ancient and Ben is close to dead.

I just love the utter silence (on FB) of those members of Steelers Nation I know. Some of the most vocal football fans I know......not a peep.

I'm half tempted to post the joke but I'll refrain....for now. :D

That sucks for him. Wish him well.

This season at the end of the day was simply a disaster. Especially the last 3 weeks with the play of Ben and just the entire team in general. The Steelers have got to start winning games early in the season next year something they have failed to do the last 2 seasons which has put them in a severe hole early on. The bottom line is you cant lose to teams like the Titans and Raiders early in the season and then teams like the Browns and Chargers and expect to make the playoffs. This Steelers team has some severe issues right now and that is now 3 out of 4 seasons for Mike Tomlin with a Super Bowl loss sandwiched in between where he has had ZERO Playoff wins. And around here that is unacceptable. Tomlin right now is going to have to rebuild this team and if he has lets say 2 or 3 more years of 8-8 or 7-9 seasons with no playoffs to show for it then the Steelers are seriously going to have to consider making a head coaching change. Just because Cowher and Noll were here for 30 and 15 years doesnt mean Tomlin has to be. By the way congrats to the Ravens for winning the AFC North yesterday. It's a tough pill to swallow but hopefully next season the Steelers can find a way to compete a little bit better in this division because they simply didnt deserve it this season the Ravens overall were the better team...

Mike Wallace is probably gone this offseason and this team is still probably going to have rebuild their defense; from the D-line to the secondary. Troy is an afterthought and Ike isn't getting any younger.

true! we must stay humble!

cause even though i absolutely loved watching the steelers do a nose dive by losing their last few games and getting bounced right out of the playoffs for a 2nd year in a row...the question now becomes... [u][i][b]"since the steelers are out of their way...again....what will the Ravens do about it?"[/b][/i][/u] last season they made it to the AFCCG. [u][i][b]"will they make it back to that game and then the coveted Super Bowl trip and then WIN?"[/b][/i][/u] until we find out their final fate....let's chill with the gloating!

[b]P.S. [/b]i did notice that NONE of those steelers fans that normally show up to our boards (even when we aren't playing the steelers) to talk smack about our Ravens and their teams "chances" to win all of their final games and the AFC North; are nowhere to be found now! smh!

This Steelers team surprised me greatly this season. I thought their defense would fall apart while their offense carried the show. It turned out to be just the opposite with the Steelers having a great defense once again, but an offense that makes ours look consistent. I'm not sure how their D was so good considering they barely forced turnovers and had little pass-rush. Their Dline was a dominant force and their young corners are legit. Once again the Steelers will have to address the Oline. RB and WR were highly inconsistent for them as well.

You know what's scary? If the season ended today, the Steelers would have the 14th overall pick in the 2013 Draft.

There are some darn good players available that early...

[b] "Steelers" Go Down in Flames[/b]


They (Ben, Wallace, Harrison, etc...) lose and complain, lose and complain, lose and complain, lose and complain...but never "did anything" about the losing. I think they fit the term "Squealers" more closely this year... lol.
