Listening to Coach Tomlin in his press conference he was very appreciative of the 12th man.

He mentioned, "the Steeler Nation is something else", "they deserve to have a winning team and we're just sorry we couldn't give them that tonight".

The fans were just amazing tonight, the way they rallied in the 2nd half to cause false starts and just really get behind the team and you could see the guys feeding off the energy of the fans.

Yeah we lost the game..I'm angry, pissed off, hurt, and just flat worn out after this game but the Steeler Nation comes together like nobody else and we can be proud of the black n gold faithful that showed up in full force tonight !

Damn, yeah. I forgot. We got it from Seattle, Seattle got it from Texas A&M. A&M got it from that high school in Friday Night Lights and I think they got it from like some pop warner team in Miami? lol. :lol:

Looking at all the terrible towels waving before the game, all the fans screaming, pumping their fists in the air, stomping their feet, and trying to rally the troops. It makes you proud to be a Steeler fan all the more.

The fans were great tonight and they stayed in it the whole game. I loved when they broke out in the Here We Go Steelers....every person there had to be chanting it....too bad Ben had to quite them down...lol!

Oh yea the fans were awesome in Heinz field! Awesome! My Steeler bar was crazy! Although we had a few *******s coming to a Steeler bar and rooting for the FAgs! Pissed me off and I told them so! Most of them weren't even Fag fans they were just being dicks! It was good to see the Steeler nation cheering so hard everywhere! I feel a little disappointed and it still stings this morning but I know it's for the best although I'd love to see us be the ones to beat the Pats!!! :tt02:

The fans were rocking the joint last night!! Proud to be a member of STEELER NATION !!

Funny thing bout this game, didn't see no jags fans on the tube. Why is it where ever we play STEELER NATION shows up but the other teams don't make the same kinda appearance in our house?? That bout sums up why STEELER NATION is #1 and the rest are wannabes.....

No matter where I've been fans of other teams shake their heads and seem dumbfounded by the Steelers Nation....the way we support our team....the way we travel. We're like no other. :cope:

Fans were great but it just seemed like there wasn't quit as many Terrible towel as in the past. But then again, checking out the tailgate Party's in the 3rdQ should did make a guy wish he was out there.:yesnod:
Did anyone else catch that when Michaels/Madden switch the camera to the Parking lot last night. Man, just tailgating without Tickets would be worth going to a game. :yellowthumb::lol:

Seriously....this past week I was sitting out on the patio at my hotel in South Florida....people there from all over the country. Colorado, New York, New Jersey, Boston, Georgia.....two things everybody agreed on. You can't count out the Steelers till it's done and our fan base is incredible and everywhere! (They seemed a little annoyed by it, but in an envious kind of way.) :greengrin:

Because no matter what Steeler fans don't sell their tickets on Ebay they go to the game or give their tickets to other Steeler fans.

I love our fans. No matter where we play it's like a home game. I'm sure the way the fans was cheering is what told our guys to get back out their and play.:cope:

How could they not be envious of our fan base. No matter where you go overseas or across the street you can always find a Steeler fan. I don't care what anybody says, the so called "Americas Team" has nothing on us. We have the best fan base, the biggest fan base, the most loyal and well traveled fan base in all of professional sports and that's a fact. No other team takes over an away game like we do. If you listen to the radio sometime during an away game or you watch TV and just listen to the cheering when the Steelers make a big play; most times it's hard to tell who is the real home team. :towelwave:

I still have not gotten my voice back, I was yelling so loud and gettin SEC 136 Fired UP........ It was kind of sad at times I heard more then once in the second quarter "Its Over", "We Suck", "Another Playoff Loss at home" It was my first visit to Heinz and I was totally floored could not believe what I was hearing......... Was very very sad........ But overall it was an Awesome Experience and Look forward to many more in the future.

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO :cope:

I hate that and the worst part is where I go is a Steeler bar only, we have a Black and Gold club and they played dumb like they didn't know it was a Steeler bar, my buddy said to them "Look around and you can't tell it's a Steeler bar??? The entire place is black and gold!!" Dumb asses!
Well said on that last part..Everyone wants to be a Steeler fan but afraid they can't handle it! hahahahaha!
