Farkin' right the Steelers self-destructed. I'm a huge Steelers fan, and I say they deserved to lose. Their gameplay was pitiful.

I want to see the Pats get righteously spanked in New Orleans(and not by some girl in the French Quarter).
2002-01-27 04:43:27 PM  
It's too sad of a day. This sucks. I must have said 'fark' about eighty six times today. Black and Gold will be back next year to put out some mass ownage.

Steelers suck, and their fans swallow.

Be a 'huge Steelers fan' then. They did not deserve to lose, and hell no did they self-destruct. Our defense played out of mind, Kordell just got a little nervous with those two interceptions at the end. Also, Think about how different the game would have been had Brown made that field goal and the Pats' did not score off the block.
2002-01-27 04:46:34 PM  
Sorry I was upset last week... now you Pittsburgh fans know how I felt/feel *sniff* LOL

Bob, they sure did seem to underestimate the Pats, no? They had very little running game for most of the game. The second half is a little late to get the rush working . . .
2002-01-27 04:50:28 PM  
Go Redskins!!Oh yea, wait a minute...DAMN, MARYLAND SUX AT FOOTBALL!!!Oh well, we still got our basketball team, GO TERPS!!!!
2002-01-27 04:52:20 PM  
Baltimore = most injured team in the league*
Pittsburgh = most overated team in the league

*most injury hours for starters - 56

Let's hear all the Birds fans out there!
2002-01-27 05:01:19 PM  
Its all moot since St Louis is going to win the SuperBowl. Is it just me, or does the trophy not really belong in either Boston or St Louis?
2002-01-27 05:02:16 PM  
go eagles, my uncle's brother is their defensive coordinator...
2002-01-27 05:02:38 PM  
The Steelers were clueless today (four turnovers!)...but at least they are not TOTALLY IGNORANT like that goofy Uncle Sam's Uncle! Get a grammar book, dude! And get your widdle Mommy to read it to you! I'll send you a dictionary for your tenth birthday. DOUCHE BAG!
2002-01-27 05:03:15 PM  
Well the steelers only self-destructed in the last five minutes of the game with those interceptions. Otherwise it was the Patriots taking it to Pittsburgh. I mean Bledsoe coming back after Brady went down and driving in one minute to score a touchdown pretty much sealed it. The 3rd quarter was pretty scary though, I thought the tide was turning. Too bad Pittsburgh focused on the Super Bowl and forgot they had a real game today.
2002-01-27 05:03:51 PM  
I used to live in Pittsburgh, but I've been living in Rhode Island for seven years now. I was rooting for the Steelers, but it was a win-win situation for me.
2002-01-27 05:04:06 PM  
58 yards. That's it. Who has the defense now?

Suck it, Trebek!!
2002-01-27 05:04:21 PM  
Go, Pats, go, Pats, go,go,go Pats!
2002-01-27 05:05:28 PM  
All I got to say is that Steelers running game, along with "the bus", Sucked. More like a go-kart.

The officiating on both sides was worse than horrible.
2002-01-27 05:06:58 PM  
Kordell Stewart=choker
2002-01-27 05:07:53 PM  
Was it just me (a biased Boston fans) or did the refs do everything in their power to try and get the Steelers back into the game?
2002-01-27 05:10:36 PM  
Go Pats, Go! Go Pats, Go! Go Pats, Go! Go Pats, Go!

Longtime New England fan, here...glad to see the red, white and blue make it in again....YES!
2002-01-27 05:11:04 PM  
Well of course, because, as a wise man (on SNL) once said:
"Anything and everything that Boston roots for loses."

So of course the refs had a hand in it.
2002-01-27 05:12:50 PM  
It was not just you Al Boondy. After the horrible reversal on the catch that was a catch, I figured the fix was in. Each crappy call afterwards made me believe it.
2002-01-27 05:13:38 PM  
Title should have been HERO: Pats win, or something to that effect. I mean, farkin' Bledsoe!!!
2002-01-27 05:13:58 PM  
There is nothing better then having the team that "is gonna win" lose. Everyone here thought this was gonna be a dull game and Pitt would win easily. HA! Good for you Pats!

New England vs St Louis in the Super BOwl...
2002-01-27 05:13:58 PM  
I'm a BROWNS fan so seeing little"Kordella" on the sideline crying like the little wussy he is(HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!) is one of the highlights of the season for me!!!!That & the Browns beating the Ratbirds twice...
2002-01-27 05:16:06 PM  
Pats!! Woot!
2002-01-27 05:17:48 PM  
Amen to the bad officiating post. It got to the point where refs were purposely making bad calls to make up for other bad calls that they had made earlier. Jeebus.

It was just you, Al. There were as many stupid calls against the Steelers as there were against the Pats. Hines Ward's stunning catch on his ass? Nope. Amos Zeroue's TD? Nah. The refs were retarded all day, on both sides of the ball. It may seem like the Steelers were favored, but that was because the Pats false started about 0239475 times.
This sucks.
2002-01-27 05:19:56 PM  
I really thought I was gonna blow chunks because of the officiating, I swear to Gawd.
2002-01-27 05:20:07 PM  
HarveyBrooks, when did Kordell cry? I saw him sweat, and look real sad. But he didn't cry.
2002-01-27 05:20:50 PM  
Kordell should cried...
2002-01-27 05:22:58 PM  
YEAH PATS!!! i knew they could do it!!
2002-01-27 05:23:28 PM  
I do feel bad for the Steelers and their fans. It is a real heart-breaking way to end the season.
2002-01-27 05:25:20 PM  
No you don't Squinch.
2002-01-27 05:25:43 PM  
C'mon one on the national scene gave the Pats a chance in hell. They smacked Pitt all over the field if the Eagles could beat STL, we could have a very interesting day next week!

2002-01-27 05:26:26 PM  
Go Patsies!

The Steelers in the past 10 years have been almost as heartbreaking as the Bills of the early 90's. I'm only 17, and I've only been a football fan since 1994, but I've seen my Steelers (yes, they are mine. I was born half a mile from Three Rivers Stadium) lose 3 AFC Championship Games at home since then, and wathced Neil O'Donnell lose a fixed Super Bowl. Even when we're the inspirational team that is supposed to win, we just can't. Depressing.
2002-01-27 05:26:37 PM  
Anyone got that "ha ha" picture of Nelson?
2002-01-27 05:26:39 PM  
The only guy who looked like he was crying was Bledsoe.
2002-01-27 05:26:53 PM  
I really do Fetus. I'm a Red Sox fan, need I say more?
