I think -- not sure, but I think -- you can get it on some other channel. That's what we did when Penn State games eclipsed Ohio State being broadcast. Found the games on a different channel ...or via the computer.
Doncha just HATE that when they don't show the game of your team?

Yes, it was painful to watch. On Pittsburgh TV it was on CBS, but on Erie, 35 had on Chef William. NOT EVEN ANOTHER GAME, CHEF FRIKKIN WILLIAM! So when I was baking in the kitchen, I had to listen to the game on 1400.

Even Chef William laughed at the Steelers.

#1 Defense, what a joke.

Kind of hard to remain the #1 defense in all relevant categories when your offense makes as many as ours did. Good game by the Titans, but bad move in stepping on my towell. A remember a certain team that did that once. Big Mistake.

Simply put, this was Fox's weekend for a doubleheader. And since Erie is "Bills market", the only game Channel 35 was allowed to show was the Bills' game.

End of story (course if anybody happened to read the life section of the ETN, they'da found plenty of places to go watch the game).

Too many people seem to think that it's a constitutional right to watch their favorite team whenever they want. If you're not happy with the options provided by the local stations, either go to a bar or club to watch a certain game, or get the NFL package.

well lets hope we see those chumps in january. Ben lost the game with his 4 fumbles and 2 ints. Next time it won't be like that. I thought the Steelers D looked a little flat late in the game and I thought the O looked flat just like they did in the dallas and bmore game. No running game and horrible play calling from arians. time for him to shown the door.

O-line needs a serious fixing too...they've been bad all year, but it was clearly evident yesterday. Losing Simmons has really hurt us, and Smith started out okay before he got hurt early in the year. But now its time to roll up their sleeves and get dirty. There is much to prove!

That last interception and run-back was truly pathetic. It looked like Ben was the only guy trying to stop the run!

one of the problems is that arians calls the game like we are down 2 scores all the time. he doesn't commit to the run. the o line needs to pound at the other team and then you get your big chunks after you wear them down. ben threw 40 times and we ran 21 I think. It should be the reverse. then we would see ben have a better game, the defense would get some needed rest and the o line would get a chance to stick some of these defenders. Look at what the ravens did to the cowboys with the run. granted they have a real fullback but wtf??

there was a survey conducted a few years back about who the NFL fans in Erie wanted see...the results:

1. Steelers
2. Browns
3. Packers
4. Bills

we are stuck with the 4th most popular team? heres a thought...change your marketing plan bet theyd make more money!

and can anyone explain that one personal foul that led to a TN touchdown?

the good thing is it forces you out to a sports bar that will be populated with other steeler fans. of course with the extra money you would spend watching a game at a bar instead of at home you could get satellite TV. lol.

I think the rest were just gassed at the point, especially Mewelde Moore...it was pathetic to see that run-back on the INT, but the game was already in-hand for Tenn.

They're paid enough to give 60 minutes of football, winning or not. I've seen down and out teams give their full effort right till the end.
