Steelers suck. Woo.
So tired of the announcers trying to build us up as a somewhat decent team when we simply can not beat teams we should- Arizona, Denver, the Jets. I guess with the Patriots approaching Norse legend status, they need to hype us a bit, but we really are not that good of a team right now.
Also- there were 360+ comments in moderation. I didn’t have the desire to wade through 360 tramadol/cialis spam to see if there were any real comments, so if you had a comment in moderation, it is gone. Sorry in advance.
but i had submitted a proof to Fermat’s Last Theorem using only elementary algebra !
my life’s work!
126 – M4KE P3N1S L0NGER 4 S3X PLEAZURE!1
118 – Pattericoco posting “John Cole is a meanie dooky head” under different aliases.
72 – Solicitations for funds from the GOP.
53 – Death threats from Steely McBeam.
John, you interested in posting anything on the “Ron Paul” coin confiscation?
Now that Patty has left in a huff, we need some more toys to play with. RonPaulites are always amusing.

The Patriots are creating some serious backlash right now.
PATRIOTS… ARE… BEOWULF!!!
Pats are just fucking good. Never seen such a monstah team like this. Bills cant stahp a 8th string RB.
At least New England didn’t win the MLS. At least we have that going for us Pat-hatahs…
There are 49ers fans in the world, and you’re complaining about your 7-3 Steelers?
Hey, John, who TF is JWW and why does he hate you so much? And does he ever post sober?
Does a complete blowout really draw better ratings than a game that comes down to an onsides kick?
Some troll we picked up from Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive who I have banned like 10 times because he is incoherent and creepy, and not because he hates me. He keeps coming back qwith a different IP.
I don’t know why he hates me, but I rarely understand what he is saying, so I doubt I ever will know. The closest I have come to figuring out why he hates me is when he, in a post I wrote about 2000 words long, told me I never write my own thoughts and just regurgitate what other people say.
And no, he is always drunk. Or sniffing glue.
Equal Opportunity Cynic
Well, it’s the same good-vs.-evil paradigm that has ESPN giving us Duke three times a week in its college basketball schedule. Build up a single team by showing all their games until people hate them and watch just to hope they’ll lose. Hell, I’ve tuned into NBC’s Notre Dame coverage three or four minutes this year just to see if the ‘Domers could lose them all.
Besides, if NBC only showed close games, they’d never get to show the Patriots because the Game of the Century was one where CBS vetoed, and even officiating that biased wouldn’t help the other 30 teams stay close. :)
yet another jeff
Another huge wins for the Aliens, and their chance of a perfect season is looking pretty good. And they didn’t even run up the score this week–after all, Brady sat for most of the 4th quarter.
Except, don’t forget, they had to cheat to beat the Jets, so it doesn’t count!
A different Matt
I agree with Mike. John’s an arrogant over-privileged bastard who sucks and smells like cat urine. P.S. will you trade us Dan Rooney for John York? We’ll throw in the 49ers cheerleaders if that’s what it takes.
Yes, from the days of John Brodie. Through Montana and Young (gods, they were) and then …. the present day, ugh.
So I thought, okay, I’ll follow the locals (Cardinals).
So, if we took the best of the 49ers and Cardinals and tried to make one team, I still don’t think we’d win ten games.
It sucks to be a fan these days unless you like the New England Patriots. Which I don’t.
Just think of John York as a Joe Thomas that no one can fire.
John W Casey
Please, all this 49ers angst. Don’t you understand that the only reason for the 49ers existence this season is to produce the highest possible draft pick for the Patriots? And I have to say, doin’ a heck of a job there, brownie.
Could be worse John…you could be a Niners fan….hell they gave me hope when the completed three first downs in a row they might be able to beat a Pop Warner team.
John W Casey…lick me.
…and while I’m not much of a NE fan, you gotta admit in the age of the salary cap, what they’ve done is a-fuckin-impressive.
Lastly, I think JWW is freaking hysterical, granted he doesn’t hate me or write incoherent death threats, but I say keep him. He’s BIRDZILLA on steroids (and booze and LSD and Jenkem (google it) ).
It could even worse than that. You could be a Ravens fan. I’ll take wins any way we can get them, but even I admit that playing pinball with the goalposts is one freaky way to get into overtime.
Wait…this is now a bad thing?
/throws paper bag in trash, keels over
As a Packers and Cowboys fan*, I would just like to tell you all to suck it.
Don’t get so down on the Steelers. They’re a quality team, and probably the last real chance to stop the uniformed cyborgs that replaced all the Patriots. (I once thought New York had a shot, it being the last game and lots of Pats likely sitting, but then we played them and I realized just how easy their schedule has been.)
Anyway, if the Steelers truly play up/down to the level of their opponent, let them be up for the Borg. Please…
*I know that makes no sense, and probably even breaks some laws. Long-time Packers fan who moved to Dallas. It’s impossible to resist the gravitational pull of the team in this city. I held out for years, but Romo was the last straw. He really is the new Farve.
Your reading level post intrigued me, so I did some browsing

Speaking of Ron Paul, this quote from Shakespeares Sister is hilarious:
John – Speaking of the Steelers, I thought these quotes about the Patriots were pretty funny
And this one (specifically referencing the Steelers):
Suck on that, Steely McCole.
try being a charger fan if you want pain. 14-2 last year and the makings of a great team to 5-5 with 12 probowlers and the league MVP all because of a playground smackdown between the head coach (Marty) and the GM (AJ Smith). Think about that, your team destroyed because of the ego of your GM, because he never got past a sixth grader’s apporach to playground politics. 5-5 is all on you, AJ, all on you!
Or Redskins (my childhood heroes, what happened!?!?).
Or Seahawks (adopted team. Superbowl to mediocrity in one season flat).
John: Imagine you are Redskins fan and narrowly lose to Dallas, thanks to Terrel Owens scoring 4 (count them) preening touchdowns exactly in the area where the injured Sean Taylor would have been.
Imagine the pain of NOT getting to watch Terrel Owens get his bell rung by Taylor. Now that is pain. Mr. McBeam–not just for you, but everyone who believes in seeing final justice meted out in this lifetime.
This ranking system is clearly flawed.
I’d give you Sean Taylor, but then we’d get Terry Glenn back. In that fantasy world, T.O. might’ve only caught two touchdowns, but Glenn woulda had the other two.
People forget Dallas has been without their most consistent receiver all season.
Dan Snyder happened.
I was a die-hard ‘skins fan growing up until snyder bought the team and made it unbearable in every respect.
Go Mediocre Panthers!
“I’d give you Sean Taylor, but then we’d get Terry Glenn back. In that fantasy world, T.O. might’ve only caught two touchdowns, but Glenn woulda had the other two.”
And I’ll give you Terry Glenn AND Terrel Owens—on a stretcher, if either had gone over the middle against Sean Tayler. Something they both would have “declined” to do. I don’t blame them either. Only Keyshawn would have been stupid enough.
Hey, don’t talk injuries to non-Cowboy fans. You’ve had two improbable years on an intact O line. When the worm turns pal . . .
Serves you right for stealing our offensive coordinator (who you should have damed well known would suck as a head coach.)
Obviously charter/voucher schools :-)
Why do all the Washington area teams have to have such crappy owners!?!?
“Why do all the Washington area teams have to have such crappy owners?”
Snyder, who, without permits, sawed down first-growth trees in front of his Vegas-like mans on the Potomac?
Abe Pollin, the biggest cheapskate in the NBA. “Millions for Hebron; pennies for the Wiz.”
And Ted Leonsis (Caps) who has an excuse. AOL hasn’t made a dime in 8 years.
It is all part of a posthumous scheme to make Jack Kent Cooke look good.
I had almost forgotten what a total asshat Cooke was until you reminded me…
Ugh, at least we’ve got Paul Allen and
Howard SchultzClay “OOOOOOOOOOOOKLAHOMA” Bennet. Oh wait.
You’ve got to read this article on the DOJ’s sealing of corruption charges against Iraq contractors. Money quote (H/T Digby):
The People vs. the Profiteers, Vanity Fair.
I’m really torn on this one. On the one hand, I think the war died of a theory, and that theory was that it’s possible to expand democracy at the point of a cruise missile. On the other hand, this is one dolchstosslegende that I would really enjoy seeing adopted in the public psyche.
Scary thought ain’t it? A leader can lie like a bastard to start a war, but if he keeps an eye on the ledgers no one will ever notice.
