I’m looking forward to this season. NFL pundits of all stripes are writing off the Steelers. Guess what, that’s how the boys in black and gold like it. And it’s how I like it! It gives me extra ammunition for a full season of blogging activities, that extra bit of self-righteous indignation, basically, a little extra inspiration. (“And you fools actually thought the Steelers couldn’t win with Leftwich? Ha!”)
Am I a jaded sports fan? Perhaps. But if we stick to the facts we see two acts of possible assholery. Does anyone even wonder if there could be an NFL next season if Roger Goodell suspended all the assholes?
We will unleash hell in Cleveland. This I swear!
This isn’t about the team physician recommending that Ben Roethlisberger sit out the Ravens game; rather, it’s the next opponent on the schedule. And friend, the Oakland Raiders are just what the doctor ordered.
Who can take a winner?
And run them in the ground.
Who can break a running game that was newly found?
Bruce Arians can
Bruce Arians can ’cause he calls a stupid game and makes the offense go away.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have walked a strange path so far this season. They started with a victory over their 2008 nemesis, the Titans of Tennessee.
The Minnesota Vikings are the quality opponent the Steelers have been seeking.
