He's right (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl/news/20121217/week-15/?sct=hp_wr_a2&eref=sihp).


14. Pittsburgh (7-7). Stunned at all the Steeler fans who want to see Mike Tomlin fired. I read those silly message boards on Steelers fan sites. Part scary, part alarmist, part unwillingness to realize every team is 7-7 now and again.

Our behavior online is so embarrassing that a columnist for Sports Illustrated has noticed, and is calling us out in front of God and everybody. :clap:

Would this be the same Peter King hammered Ben after Georgia by first claiming that A) Miss DTF was 19 and B) That Ben was investigated by Nevada police? And to top that off, he called Charlie Batch at the time "The QB America is rooting for".

So his credibility is about shot with me IMO.

He didn't merely hit the bullseye with his assessment of Steeler fans online. He hit the goddamn center of the bullseye, and your opinion of him doesn't change that fact.

Why doesn't he mention Haley's garbage play-calling? Or the fact that many are blaming Roethlisberger even though our defense was shredded by Tony Romo? King picked an easy target. Every fan base in the NFL rips their head coach after a bad season/loss.

Who cares what Peter king thinks. How did he get his job anyway? The eddie trunk of the nfl. Go on a philly board, hear what they are saying about there team. etc. The truth is when a team is not playing well, everyone attacks at all angles, players,coaches, fans etc. Yes i do agree there are some irrational threads on here, but we are all entitled to our opinions, right? This is america! The Steelers fanbase is the best in the NFL. Did you see all those terrible towels in the stands yesterday? Yes, the home stadium of the americas team? Any fanbase will callout subpar play. If you want to accept mediocrity, go root for the Browns or lions.

Not a Peter King fan but he is right. This thread is a perfect example. We actually had someone say our defense was "shredded" with the vitriol of an IRA agent speaking of the queen. For Pete's sake, we had people playing CB that were practically pulled from the checkout line at the Piggly Wiggly and we were still within an AB fumble and a Ben INT of winning.

Win or lose, fans tend to over react - especially on Monday. We Steelers fans have been so spoiled over the years that when the team actually has a down year, people want to storm the castle with torches and pitch forks. Mentally, the Steelers need to get better and of course, get healthy. It's the these things that are hurting them right now (Fumbles, lack of QB pressure, lack of a consistent running game, getting off the field on 3rd down, takeaways).

Peter King has little to no credibility. he's a dinosaur who constantly tries to pretend like he knows what he's talking about. When he doesn't.

He's as insignificant as a fly on an elephant's ***.

Peter King just wants hits on whatever blog he is writing, he knows he can get it if he pisses off a bunch of Steeler fans.

I must admit lots of Steelers fans say rediculous things like fire LeBeau and Fire Tomlin .To me if blame must be assigned it would be 3 things injuries Todd Haley and mike Wallace not caring or it appears like he doesn't care.But that being said if you look at our loses there are only a couple of games where we got wooped the other games were a matter of the younger players learning how to win next year we will be a dominate team for sure.

When I saw that big fu$king dumb *** on the sideline I was like WTF. That was just out right wrong.I heard something like his mother asked Jerry Jones if he could be on the side line so the team could support him.Give your head a shake bitch your fu$king dumb *** son just killed someone. Fu$k me. Jerry Jones that fu$king clown should get fined for that tasteless act.

It was Jerry Browns mother that wanted to support him. Doesn't matter. Too many NFL players are not setting examples, and this sure as hell seems to be promoting it.

This was a slap to the face to the NFL by Goodell and Jerry Jones for allowing this. Ben was accused and that's it, the son of a bitch killed someone and he's standing on the sidelines laughing it up with his buddies! Are you fn kidding me??? Wtf wtf wtf

Peter King carries a lot of weight with homer fans and fans who really don't have a real opinion of anything on their own. All these national columnists are like that. The real fans, fans that know something about the game no matter who they cheer for just take his comments with a grain of salt. If he writes something good, they like him, if he bashes their team, they hate him.

If he thinks that Steelers fans are the only ones that call for a coaches head everytime there's a bad season then he needs his head examined. I would hope to God he has more sense than that.

Steelers fans are passionate people who speak with a lot of emotion when it comes to our team. Do most of us actually want Tomlin fired? Probably not although there are some. The real issue is, IMO, they want Tomlin to backup what he preaches in a way that truly sends a message.

If you're going to demote someone then do it for real; not starting a starter but yet still letting him play doesn't do anything.

If you're going to preach the hot hand at RB and stick with it like you have been the last few weeks, then do that for every position. If someone isn't playing well then sit them down.

Things of that nature are magnified in the wake of losing 4-5 games.
