    The problem with the stupidity of kicking the FG is it still left us 3 scores down and that is not taking into account we knew the Pats would score more points. Maybe the single dumbest decision of his career and it is fraught with a plethora of bad decisions.

    The number of Steeler fans who know nothing about football and how the Rooneys do business is astounding. I don't tell them about this place. It would be like Californians moving to Colorado and fucking that place up too.



    Bless you Burgundy for your silence, keep it that way please.



    Salute the nation

    It's not a stupid decision at all. It means that Shades knew there was no way they were going to win and and simply wanted to avoid a shutout.
    Hell, I knew they were going to lose at the opening kickoff. It was just a matter of seeing how bad the beatdown would be.

    Tomlin was like Michael Spinks coming into the ring vs Iron Mike Tyson. Shades should have worn knee pads like Spinks because he knew he was going down before the opening bell.

    In the Belicheat/Br*dy era we have only beat the Cheats once at their place and that was in 2008 when Br*dy got a broken leg in the first game and was on IR for the season.
    We got to three SB's in six years but due to one quirk or another we never had to face the Pats****** in the playoffs.
