Post here to show your pride for your Steelers

Postby Azrael » Sun Jan 23, 2005 9:59 pm

Man, I'm disappointed right now. Gotta give New England credit for playing mistake free football. I thought our rookie QB did give the game away with his errant throws. No doubt we wouldn't have got this far without him. We had the team to win it all this year but lacked the experience at QB in the end. Big Ben will be a great one for years to come I just hope we have some remnant of the team we had this year to surround him with when he finally grasps what he needs to do mentally in the NFL.

I'm so proud of our guys this year. We had one of the greatest seasons of all time in the NFL and none of us expected it. Thanks for the great season Steelers. Looking forward to next year already.

Reluctantly, I have to root for the Eagles. Hate to see dynasties that aren't my own. Though I still have the orangemen's NCAA run to look forward to.

Finally, congrats to the Pats, you guys deserved it on this day and we did not.

Weren't you supposed to be at Heinz field tonight?
Or, did you leave early, like a lot of the "faithful"?
Nice run for the Steelers, but, sorry, I wouldn't count on those Orangemen too much either. ;-)

That's for Panther games. Orangemen are better this year than when we won it with Carmello 2 years ago.

I'm proud of my team.

After a 6-10 season, I thought the best we would do was 8-8. Instead, a rookie comes in as an injury replacement and wins 15 games in a row and leads his team to the AFC Championship.

The offensive line was superb all year, and the Steel Curtain defense led the league in several defensive categories. To top it all off, they knocked both Baltimore and Buffalo out of the playoffs in the last two weeks.

You gotta be proud.

Bettis is supposedly going to take awhile in the offseason to think it over according to the telecast last night. Said he didn't want losing to affect his decision.

nerves get to everyone...

in fairness though, Ben put together some nice drives, especially the first three in the 2nd half. Were it not for some shabby pass defense (not just the big plays, but the three or four 3rd and 5's where soft coverage allowed for easy first downs, and obviously the two penalties in the one drive) it may have been a different game.
Best... fantasy advice... EVER. :D

I am very pleased with the season. They played with a lot of heart and just couldn't keep it up for a couple more games. Ben wasn't the only reason we lost to NE, we just didn't execute as well all around.

Congrats to the Pats, and remember this next year. We will be back. ;-D

not to be nitpicky, but if i posted a "Show your Cowboys pride here" topic, it'd be eaten by Hammy, or moved to my team's forum.

We know you're all mourning right now, but hey... 29 other teams have been for a while.
