  1. It's surpising to me that most people don't realize that Williams tried to tackle like that to avoid a ridiculous "defenseless receiver" penalty which would've put the Saints in GW FG position. Granted, ultimately, things worked out even worse but this was the perfect example of people saying that these new rules were going to one day cost a team a big game.
  2. What did Arians do other than possibly end Palmer and Luck's careers at differnet ends of the spectrum?
  3. I love how everyone keeps talking about how Haley is fielding a Top 5 offense year in and year out... Everyone realizes that they're talking about yards right? Which is meaningless... The Steelers Offense has ranked in the Top 5 in terms of Points scored just once in the Haley era despite having a Top 5 QB, Top 3 HB, and Top God-Level Wide Receiver during that span and a consistent and healthy O-Line. Oh, and Wide Receivers who would likely start elsewhere. It's because he cannot get it done in the Red Zone or Short Yardage situations which has cost this team games. There's no excuse to never be in the top 3 scoring offenses with that talent!
  4. Jaguars vs. Steelers Divisional Playoff GDT

    Only team remaining who's fans aren't annoying are Minnesota. I am ALL IN on on them.
  5. Jaguars vs. Steelers Divisional Playoff GDT

    You're right. Let's reward Cowher for a missed field goal versus the Chargers and a 20 point comeback against the Browns...
  6. Jaguars vs. Steelers Divisional Playoff GDT

    Just because Tomlin feels they should win it all doesn't mean they (a) can, (b) will, or (c) should. He can't control several factors such as injuries, etc.
  7. Jaguars vs. Steelers Divisional Playoff GDT

    Didn't you know? We're supposed to win the Super Bowl every single year. God Forbid we're playing in the same era as a 17 year dynasty and have 3 Appearances in that span and are likely better off if either team's QB retires. Nope! Super BOwl or bust every eyar!
  8. Jaguars vs. Steelers Divisional Playoff GDT

    It was 100% true. While, at that time, teams had to make reservations, Cowher was publically speaking that his team reserved their rooms. You cannot have it both ways and laud Cowher when he did some of the exact same things that you lambast Tomlin for. http://old.post-gazette.com/steelers/20020128patriots0128np6.asp http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/steelers/2017/12/01/mike-tomlin-steelers-patriots-super-bowl-odds-2017-minnesota-bill-belichick-bill-cowher/stories/201712030049

    What I find funny is how, certain Steelers fans can chastize Tomlin for looking ahead but completely ignore that Cowher used to do this. Like, he literally had the team book Hotels in the Super Bowl city when they went to the AFCCG. It backfired every time but twice just so you know.
  10. How good would Antonio Brown be with...

    Can we just trade him to New England so he can win a Super Bowl already? He deserves it.
  11. GWT: Week 19 Jags @ Steelers

    And with that the rest of my post-season will be meaningless and absolutely stupid Antonio Brown vs. Julio Jones debates on Twitter.
  12. GWT: Week 19 Jags @ Steelers

    Welp. Go Saints or Vikings. Only way for this forum to be bearable for the next 13 months.
  13. GWT: Week 19 Jags @ Steelers

    Well, let's see... I now have money to help pay for my newly purchased house and some of these bills from my daughter being in the NICU and the Steelers still lost anyway so I'm good.
  14. GWT: Week 19 Jags @ Steelers

    I'm a man who needs money before I'm a fan. Coupled with Manchester City meaning more to me than Pittsburgh now.
  15. GWT: Week 19 Jags @ Steelers

    Oh, my rationale this time was (a) the fact that we lost to them previously, (b) the fact that we had 3 weeks off stupidly, and (c) the fact that the Steelers continually were talking about New England.
