    Happy! The problem is we hold this team much higher than maybe play at times. Truth is injuries and poor drafts are finally catching up! Now we as fans are having a hard time accepting this!

    I hold this team to a High Standard year after year. Kind of like Yankee fans do with there baseball team. Well, I should say I expect them to play hard/passionate and solid football every year.

    We Steeler fans EXPECT nothing but the best from this team after we are Champions and Champions should know how to WIN all the time no matter what or why or how

    This.....No doubt the Steelers success has spoiled us but at the same time its the right of the fan to complain if he or she chooses when the team stinks up the joint.....

    Mellow
    if we are talking in generalities i would say that most steelers fans are always expecting excellence, while a smaller contingent is never happy.

    for me, i'm a realist when it comes to the steelers. i can look at them without homer glasses and say i'm happy with this or not happy with that. this year, i don't expect excellence because i know how talent-poor we are on defense. that is mainly the front office's fault. but i also see that they could take a chance and try some of the other players like heyward and mcclendon more, and that is the coach's fault.

    i touched on this in another thread, but i think that our conditioning program is way below average. 5 of the last 6 games we have given up a fourth quarter lead. that goes beyond X's and O's...our players are older, fatter, slower, and more prone to injury. now the injury thing is not all on conditioning, but it does play a big part.

    so, when you see a team, that could be good enough to be an upper-echelon team, loose to teams like the raiders and titans, while having leads in the fourth quarter... i can say that i am not happy with their play.
    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward
