Why am I betting against the Pittsburgh Steelers today?

At this point in time, all I want is for the Pittsburgh Steelers to snag the #6 seed and make the postseason, despite their ragtag offense and an injured list that resembles what would happen if the NFL placed a team in Beirut. All that needs to happen is for Pittsburgh to beat the Baltimore…

Mike Tomlin for Coach of the Year – there is no other argument against it

The Pittsburgh Steelers – my team of choice – have employed only three head coaches in the past fifty years.  And in that time, those three coaches – Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher and Mike Tomlin – have brought the City of Steel eight Super Bowl appearances and six championships.

Why, James Harrison? WHY? WHY?!?

My loyalty to the Pittsburgh Steelers is unquestioned.  I don’t even participate in fantasy football leagues, because I can NOT, in my heart, ever draft a player from the Jets, the Browns, the Ravens, the Bengals, the Cowboys, the Giants, the Bills, the Packers, and certainly not from the New England Patriots.
