    So after you look at the records and know the SB stats. Can you really say the Pitt way is any better than the Pats way. They both work for each team but seriously folks IMHO the Pats way has worked better since 2000.

    [QUOTE]All we hear about and talk about in this parts is this almost MYTHical (and I'm using the word MYTH strongly, "Patriot Way" of doing things. Well, what about the "Steeler Way"?? Do we discount the fact that all this organization does is WIN?? They do it with toughness, solid drafting, RUNNING, defense ,GOOD OC and DC's and...finally THEY SPEND MONEY! The Pats have one of the lowest total payrolls in the NFL. Second I believe to Arizona. The Steelers have one of the highest. I mean, is BB writing the checks himself?? We need talent. MORE than what we have now. I agree with drafting it more than FA's but for cryin out loud it takes money to make money so to speak. Is there a crime in drafting high and actually PAYING the picks. We done enough with the volume/value approach. It's time to maximize and plug holes and throw some cash around. The Steelers to me right now are the Gold Standard organization..not the Pats. You can't argue the results.

    the 2010 season is the last year of the decade. Don't pull the Troll card, it weakens your statements.

    If we talk about SB rings as a measurement of success, then I think it'd be fair to say the Steelers could be considered a candidate for NFL team for the past decade.

The thing with the steelers is they have been pretty inconsistant. One year they win it all the next year they don't even make the playoffs. This has happen pretty regular of late and with that kind of performance I would not call them the team of the decade.
    Posted by fourjays30[/QUOTE]


    Technically, a new decade starts with year ending in 1 and ends with year ending in 0, so season 2010 is the last year of the past decade. So, if the Steelers win the SB game vs. packers, then that'd be 3 rings w/i past 10 years.

    Rusty. Like I said the picture changes when the Steelers start to lose players or coaching staff ( I can't see Lebeau leaving a great situation any time soon and they will franchise and pay Woodley). On the other hand no team loses as much of its roster  over the last two years than the Pats ,rebuilds on the fly, has a great draft and attains the best regular season record in football. That seldom, if ever, happens. People forget we went from Bledsoe to Brady under Kraft. The Steelers went through Brister, O Donnell and dearth of mediocre personel until recently. Any "Way" comment is usually just a media creation anyway. If you win the big dance more than once the whole world talks about how that's the way to do it, when the fact is a) there is no clearcut way to do "it" b) having a team that achieves the playoffs every year is an extrordinary accomplishment regardless of how you do it. I still agree that the Steelers are a top 5 organization, but they weren't without a down time/era either.

    Yesterday I began to respect the Steelers.  They have a complete team, unlike the Patriots.   We have a good offense,  they have it all.   Their defensive puts fear into opponents. 



    Throwing on 3rd down with 2 minutes left  showed they got guts. It was a very gutsy call by Tomlin.  Big Ben is a winner and one of the best ever.

    I don't usually question or respond negatively to any of the posts from Patriot fans on this forum. But this is an old worn out cliche, just like others around the NFL use 'spygate' as a way to downplay the great success of the Patriots over the past ten years.  I'll be the first to admit that the Steelers aren't a great team, haven't been for a long time. But just like New England, they usually don't get high draft choices and yet they build their team mostly through the draft, and still remain very competitive or near the top, year after year.  There are a lot of regulars on here who are honest & very knowledgeable about the NFL, they bring up a lot of good topics and that's why I enjoy reading them & also the comments. As for Ben, I think the first incident was bogus. This woman was bragging that she was going to have some 'little Rothlisbergers'. The second incident, personally I believe this girl, more than the first one. Although he has never been charged with anything (as far as I know) I will not defend him .  Response to Re: What about the "Steeler Way"??:

    Re: What about the "Steeler Way"??

    He doesn't stink but he is overrated because every player in Pitt is completely overrated by that fanbase.

    Apparently, Louis Lipps should be in the Hall of Fame as should Dermontti Dawson. lol

    Roethlisberger has the worst, I reapeat, the worst QB rating of any winning SB QB ever with a rating of 43.  That's not a good thing to have on the ol' resume.

    Anyone who is that horrendous in a SB game cannot be in the same breath as all time greats like Montana or Brady.   

    Brady has so many records Turdlisburger could only dream of. Same with Manning.  It's actually insulting to put Turdlisberger into the Brady, Manning  or Brees category currently. 

    If anyone was a "game manager" of these names, it's Rapelisturd.

    Roethlisberger is like Jim Plunkett (2 rings) or a larger version of John Elway. HOF type QBs, who ended up playing on loaded teams in great organizations, but not the best stats.

    But, no doubt give him credit for winning.  That's all that matters. But, if someone like Drew Brees walked into a great environment either in SD or NOs immediatley, he'd already have 2 rings by now, too.

    I just think when you get to the upper echelon of all time greats, he's not in the discussion.  Brees isn't either, but that is sort of the point.  Even Brees is more impressive right now than Rapelisturd.

    If he were to win the SB again, he'd have to be in the general discussion due to the rarity of winning 3 rings, though.  But better than people with superior resumes? NO.

    I also think the fact he is a serial rapist will tarnish his reputation forever. Some people won't ever forgive that he was a rapist in his down time.

    Definitely a stupid statement.^^^

    "Not even close"?

    So, if Manning hadn't thrown the INT late in last yea'r SB, or NOs hadn't converted on that onside kick last year, Manning's numbers and his two rings (if the Colts had recovered the onside kick), are somehow worse than Rapelisturd's resume?

    What planet do you live on?

    I hate Indy like everyone else, but that's ludicrous. Manning has never had a QB rating of 43 in a SB.

    No one has even remotely been that horrendous. Not even Elway or freaking Vince Ferragamo. Or Trent Dilfer.
