People around here follow the Steelers out of some sort of blinded allegiance, much like Penn State fans. If you manage to talk with any of them you'll find out that at least 90% of them know little, is anything at all, about the game of football.

Look, I'm from Texas and as you might imagine I'm a Cowboys fan. But there are Steeler fans around here, not many, but enough, enough to make me mad because I know that they don't know anything about the Steelers. They converted to Steeler fans since Dallas stopped winning. In other words, they've abandoned the sinking ship. Are those true fans to you?

So you need to be an expert to route for a team from the state in which you live (or don't if you so choose)? Do you need to be a cattle farmer in order to like and eat steak?

No matter what anyone tells them, the citizens of York refuse to believe that eating old paint chips is bad for them! And no, daily doses of crack DO NOT counteract the effects--that is an urban legend, all right?

Okay, then. So I can't speak for YORK Steeler fans, but in Western PA nearly EVERYONE can talk knowledgeably about the game. Old ladies on the bus will tell you not just that the Steelers need to throw more on first down, but also give suggestions on how to break down the Packers secondary.

Obviously u don't know what ur talking about . The 2010 steelers throw more on first down than any steeler team ever did . Check it out . The key to the packers secondary is to stay away from the corners . Short slants in the middle of the field . And long bombs to Wallace . But we first need to establish the run . I think the same game plan we used against the jets would work very well . As for Rodgers we gotta pressure him just like any other good qb . Wrap up and tackle . I think it's gonna be a good game but of course the steelers come out on top . HERE WE GO STEELERS , HERE WE GO

Oh boy, where should I even start with you? To begin with, obviously I was just throwing something out there that an old lady might say, not actually drawing up a game plan for the Steelers (and, BTW, I was doing it in an attempt to defend the Steeler fans of Western PA, so I'm not sure why you felt like you had to come back with a personal attack). I actually want to see them pound the ball again and again to keep Rogers off the field, as I've said in numerous other posts, though keeping them off balance by throwing on first down will clearly be in the mix.

As for your recipe for the game--wrapping up and tackling, pressuring the QB, establishing the run--I guess I'd file all that under "No Shit." It's a wonder you're not a head coach already.(Though then you'd have to explain how you're going to "throw long bombs to Wallace" while simultaneously "staying away from the cornerbacks.")

If you read my post again u would see I said short slants to the middle of the field . And to get Wallace the ball deep also mean he needs to get separation from the "corners" . I wasn't attacking you I just assumed you felt the same way as the lady on the bus . Lol and I was voicing my opinion against it . And as far as coaching goes , I would make a great one .

It's interesting to note that Green Bay and Pittsburgh were voted as having the most knowledgeable football fans in the NFL.

Cool. Not that I have anything against personal attacks, just not against other Steeler fans. We need to stick together.

Yawn. Whatever. We're about to watch a team play in the Super Bowl that didn't have to do it by buying every overpriced free agent in the country.(You must love the Redskins, too--the Yankees of the NFL!)

Have fun yanking it in 2011.

The only thing that can be said about Steeler fans is that they are the rudest most arrogant jackasses in all of professional sports. They instigate fights with opposing fans, they travel to away games and insult fans (children included) in the host city and they wear their stupid Steeler gear 24/7/365, assuming every man woman and child they encounter gives a crap about their favorite sports team. I've always found them to be of low intelligence and severly lacking in maturity.

I'm sorry to hear that's been your experience, Dabney. Like George above, I've found that ALL football teams have fans like that. Since the Steelers have more fans nationwide than any other team, it probably just feels like they're more obnoxious.

WOW, I'm a fan and have done none of the things you listed. You sound really angry and very narrow minded. Or are you just jealous?

dabney suffers from lombardi envy...it afflicts many nfl fans nationwide. I love wearing my steeler hat or t shirt around. get some bad looks but not too many. have never acted like a jackass unless wearing a steeler t shirt in denver airport is being a jackass...and i don't think it is.

I'm very tired of Steelers fans in Northern Virginia. They all moved here because we actually have jobs here. Imagine that! Yet they still root for Pittsburgh. Why? Root for Washington if you live here. We gave you jobs! How about a little something for the home town?!

Please go back to Pittsburgh.
