    Get used to it bro Thats what makes SA a cool place to be. These threads will take you to places you've never been and really make you think. A lot of knowledgable Steeler fans here, including yourself. Nice posts by the way.



    Thanks mate, I used to be a member of Mac and wife ( other steeler fan site ) but quickly found out that you need a flack jacket to be prepared for a ton of abuse if you want to have a conversation with someone.

    It's great to be able to have an adult conversation here on SA with other likeminded knowledgable steeler fans and not get sworn at for sometimes having a slightly different opinion to someone else.
    I appreciate it cos here in england talking american football to anyone here is few and far between.

    This site rocks!!! It's much cooler than any other steeler fan site i've been to. Top banana guys ( english saying ) , your the best.

    To be completely fair, if I'm not mistaken, since 1993 no teams have had less losses then the Steelers (because of the tie against at Atlanta, it's not more wins). And yet, there's only 2 Super Bowl appearances in that stretch. While teams like the Broncos, Packers, Patriots, Cowboys, and Bills have had the same or more appearances.

    With the Steelers 1 victory, they've got less Super Bowl wins since 1993 than the Patriots, Cowboys, and Broncos in that same stretch (Bills 0-2, Packers 1-1).

    So there must be some disconnect between being able to win (beat anybody at any given time) and being able to win champsionships (beat everybody).

    Winning a Super Bowl has never been easy. Winning a Super Bowl one-dimensionally has never been harder.

    And yes, I've noticed that I can make counterpoints without having to explain that I'm not trying to , that I just like intelligent conversation--it's how I learn. Futhermore: top banana. That is all.
    Hotlink it and spread the love!

    Well said all! It takes adults to be able to have differing opinions without acting like tantrum throwing 2 year olds about it.

    It's rare for things to get out of hand on this site--it's why it's the only Steeler site I've stuck with. Even on the rare occasions when tempers flare from the generally "cool tempered" members, it doesn't last long, and things are smoothed over fairly quickly.

    And let's face it, there's always gonna be one or two members on every site who just don't know HOW to talk sensibly when someone doesn't agree with them. I, (for one) just won't get into a good debate with them, because it just never works out (what I would term) successfully. And it doesn't take long to discover exactly which members are like that

    THIS thread has been great because differing opinion have been offered, discussed, mulled over, thought about, and expounded on without anyone acting like a child, throwing a tantrum, or acting like an idiot--THAT is great debate--THAT is success!

    So there must be some disconnect between being able to win (beat anybody at any given time) and being able to win champsionships (beat everybody).
    That disconnect is what we've struggled with during the whole Cowher era. We've been as successful as we could ask for in the regular season usually but when it came to the playoffs it's like something just clicked and all the flaws that were seemingly hidden were exposed each and every time. Whether it was a sub par return game, coverage units, inexperienced QB, poor secondary play or whatever we found out that we weren't as dominant as we thought we were when push came to shove.

    Im looking for all that to change in this new era with Tomlin. More focus, more attention to detail, and just generally more emphasis on the fundamentals and we can really step it back up to where we are in contention every year and able to get over the hump in the playoffs with more regularity.

    Blitzburgh Pete and I are former Mac and Wife brothers. We go back about two years. I've known Pete all that time and he is truly through thick and thin one of the best friends I could ever made at mac and wife. He is a true friend unlike the rest of them over there. A very few are elite in my book.

    I am just glad everyone here has accepted him with open arms and gratitude. I told him about this place and I can tell he has found a new home.

    POWER FOOTBALL IS THE WAY TO GO!!!

    TOP BANANA TO YOU TOO!!!!
