IT WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS!
/whatever, the season was already over when they lost to Oakland
While I am disgusted, this game exposed farrior and Arians for what they are. Short tern loss for long term gain. I would be puking tight now if we hadn’t won it all last year. Tomlin needs to clean up his staff and personnel.
Matt Millen defending Mangini is all kinds of fail.
The banhammers will be out on every Steelers forum that ever existed for weeks…
Matt Millen doing anything is all kinds fail.
The 14 KSK writers from Pittsburgh must be absolutely downtrodden right now.
If you thought the season was over when they lost to Oakland (completely ecstatic over that btw), how do you think they feel now that they lost to the Browns in the Dawg Pound?
Nice file name.
God Pittsburgh fails.
The only thing that could top this is the Patriots not making the playoffs.
The only thing that could top that is Brett Favre suffering a career ending injury.
The only thing that could top that is Kenny Fuckin’ Powers throwing a Super Bowl winning touchdown.
He’s got a fucking cannon for an arm.
I hate the Steelers, but even I miss Hines Wald’s smirre.
I don’t want to say I told you so. So I won’t. Charlie Weis to the Stillers? Better than Arians.

///Still getting some, fwiw
Hey Ape, thanks to your team providing enough cover to keep the focus off my oft imploding team. At least you guys won a title last year. But it is ironic that the SB champ is having the down year; usually it is the SB loser that does.
obit, shut the fuck up. You didn’t call shit. And Weis to the Steelers is the kind of retardery I would expect from a Cowboys fan. That’s the kind of clueless hire only Jerry Jones/Dan Snyder would make.
Ben has big ouchie in headspot.
HOW MANY SLEEPS BEFORE THE OFFSEASON?
Great episode of Survivor, great episode of Community, great episode of Jersey Shore, great episode of Jersey Shore Afterparty, and the Steelers lost. It was a good evening.
Gayer name: Brady or Bruce?
All patrol vehicles there has been a raping of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the vicinity of Cleveland, OH between the hours of 8:30 and 11:00 to the defending super bowl champs. Suspect is a Mr. Brady Quinn going 6 for 19 and 90 yards.
I don’t get the “Hines Wald” thing. You guys do know that Asians pronounce their L’s as R’s, not the other way around, right? I’m all for Asian stereotypes, but at least get it right.
losing to oakland and cleveland back to black……. simply to glorious to understand
It’s part of the joke.
It’s true, losing to Oakland killed their season. But there are worse fates than death.
At least lose to Horseballs. Not Goddess Quinn and his 6 of 19, 90 passing yards.
And Chris Jennings? Who the hell is Chris Jennings? And how does 73 yards on 20 carries get the job done?
your tears are delicious, ape.
Not exactly crying. They won it all last year. Just totally blindsided by how bad they are. It’s like running into the hot girl from high school five years later only to see she’s gained 70 lbs. and a penis.
Fair enough, but it sounds more German than anything.
It’s kind of amusing to see all the Steeler haters come out after a big loss. If only you guys rooted for your own teams with such passion — or had teams deserving of being rooted for.
Mr. Tomlin, this is OnStar, it appears you’ve crashed your season into a ditch. We’re sending help immediately. Haha Pittspuke!
@Ape: all jokes aside, it really is stunning how bad the Steelers got and how fast it happened. Saw the highlights and the offensive line looked like it was preseason. And if the Cowboys hire Weis I will go to Arlington myself and shoot both he and the Double-J in the head…with my fully automatic weapon for home protection of course.
/has Steelers D in FFB
FMT? Really? It’s like Pittsburgh didn’t win a Super Bowl last year or anything.
Oh fuck, shut up. I just said I wasn’t dogging the team because they won it last year.
Goddamn Ravens fans.
yinz guys need ta leave dem stillers alone. dey lost to a pahwer house!
Ben, you cock smoking fudge packer, they lost to the bottom feeders; the Quiefs, the Raiduhs, and the Brownies. They got their asses kicked by 8 year old girls in little skirts Thursday night. Every fan of every team they’ve rolled over for the last decade plus has the right to rejoice and kick them in the balls while they’re down. Fuck you, Ben. Fuck you right in the ass on a dry run.
/likes the Steelers, hates their fans
//bet 2 Steelers fans that the Browns would cover
///well over the legal limit for the evening
So when Mike Tomlin said “We’re going to raise hell in December” what he really meant to say was “We’re going to raise our draft pick in 2010″
Seriously what the hell happened to this team. Ive been a Steelers fan all 27 years of my life but good god its like we had it and then went all Pittsburgh Pirates and lost it all.
Missed the game (daughter playing hockey), but love the outcome.
Love that Ape is man enough to take it and Steelery enough to fight back.
For the site, only Brett needs to go down for the KSK demolition cincofecta.
I’d just like to give a big fuck you to all my friends that insisted the Steelers were the obvious pick in the suicide pool this week, who I respectfully declined. And a big lol to the seven people left that agreed with them.
/Titans vs Rams, if you must ask
But, they’re all gonna laugh at you.
I would stay a step or two back from Ape right about now.
//Love your work Ape, Don’t kill me with your psychic trajectory mind probing thingy.
The Steelers are NOT playing Tampa Bay next week nor Washington the following week. Is this a good thing, or a bad thing? On one hand, it may be easy wins. On the other, you could complete the Superfecta of Fail. Discuss.
(Sorry Ape, if it helps I’m from Chicago. Misery loves other football teams shitting the bed)
I can’t believe this is the same team that absolutely dismantled the Chargers in week 4. What a swing in fortunes for the two squads.
This is the last time I buy a book from you for supporting such a shoddy team, Ape.
are you there god? its me, ben.

As a loyal Browns fan, I’d like to offer Ape & his fellow yinzers some assistance based upon my years of experience… repeat after me gentlemen: “Wait til next year!”
I was at the game, & it truly was a beautiful sight to behold when thousands of black & gold figures began scurrying from the stands like rats after that last incomplete pass.
Duncan Hines, your tears taste dericious
The scary thing right now is that the only thing that separates the Steelers from the Bills is a competent QB. Super Bowl champs to the Bills in less than a year? House can’t even come up with an obscure disease to reference.
My condolences on the season, Ape. It could be worse. You could have Lovie Smith for a head coach and Ron Fucking Turner for OC.
/goes back to shotgunning PBR
Matt Millen thinks the Steelers just need to draft a WR in the first round, but then that’s his answer for everything.
Just thinking about freezing my ass of at Heinz next Sunday for a game that is virtually meaningless makes me want to projectile vomit all over myself.
I’m just stunned. Tomlin knows he HAS to fire Arians, right? I cannot believe we fell for the “New Steeler Offense” bullshit, just like with Maddox. Unreal.

It can’t be much fun getting passed around by the likes of Todd Haley, Tom Cable, & Eric Mangini.
@ Ben: Super late to this party but as someone who is currently in Asia (Korea) at the moment teaching kids English, it is the R’s to L. Koreans cannot say R’s Hines Wald is Korean so this is perfect in everyway. At least 85% of my kids anyway, the other 15% try and can get over that.
‘Tis a cld and rainy night here in Los Angeles, as all the bandwagon fans sadly pack away their Steelers jersey for the rest of the season. Rather than bemoan the loss, they’ll move on, as they always do; some might be bold enough to buy a new Drew Brees jersey, but in these tough economic times the rest will stick with their usual rotation.
t’s a tough year for a mid-season switch. Most will probably eschew the Packers and Patriots jerseys, and go back to the Cowboys, once again. They’ll pray that the seemingly-inevitable collapse doesn’t come, and that Tony Romo doesn’t embarrass them, again.
More complicated than that – the Korean language does not have either a pure R or a pure L. It instead has “ㄹ” – a consonant that could be most simply described as rolling the tip of your tongue lightly against the top of the mouth while pronouncing an L. What results is a sort of hybrid between an R and a L.
The difficulty is that an R requires one to raise the full tongue against the roof while moving your jaw and an L keeps the tip firmly against the teeth. Neither exists in Korean, but the L is easier to learn.
If you want to teach your kids proper pronunciation, start out with “er/ir” sounds, such as “sir” – less complicated than other vowels because it’s practically the pure “r” sound itself. And emphasize that “r” requires them to move their jaw while making the sound – Korean does not have any such consonants.
The stereotype fails, however, because Chinese and many other Asian languages contain both distinct R and L sounds. While somewhat different from the English pronunciation, they do exist.
Getting passed around by the likes of Todd Haley, Tom Cable, & Eric Mangini can’t be much fun.
I’m just telling you what I hear everyday of my life for the past 4 months and next 8 trying to get kids to say “rook” instead of “look” and “Rail Road Tracks” instead of “Lail Load Tlacks” is my number one goal. I ask often draw the “ㄹ” and try to explain to them that the way the pronounce that is what is condufing them because when I say what is this “ㄹ” they basicilly say “real”. But if your in Korea I say lets get together have a few Hite’s and laugh
From J.L. White’s link:
… DeCamillis, who described Romo as an upright target …
Write your own Dead Man Walking jokes.
i enjoyed this game
Everyone has forgotten that after the Steelers wer 4 and 2..the four teams they had beaten had a total of 1 win between them..
It really is surprising. That’s probably the best way to put it. The only people who are playing up to “standard” right now are really the OLBs, Kiesel, and Rashard. Sad state when your plethora of talent can’t do anything. WRs aren’t getting separation, and are dropping balls. The usually sure-handed Miller can’t catch anything to save his life, and hesitates taking on a DB in a game of chicken. Ben is late on throws and staring down targets. The O-line can’t open a hole and Colon in particular is playing like it’s 2007. DBs can’t make a tackle or actually keep coverage, and bid too hard on PA. Line is giving up too much ground. Farrior’s slower than shit, and Timmons has been playing a flop game for too long, looking for flags.
Easily the worst 3 quarters of football I have ever watched this team play.
Silver lining: Steelers will now be able to draft some massive OT from some shitty school that nobody knows about right now but we’ll all be talking about when the season ends and there is nothing to look forward to other than the combine and draft.
This just goes to show how missing just one key player can send a season into the shitter.
Yes, they just haven’t been the same without Willie Parker.
Wow. Just wow. The Steeler fans in my area are going to stop wearing their recently bought # 7 paraphernalia.
Could it be possible that Millen is a worse announcer than he was a GM?
And the wheels have officially fallen off the bandwagon. Nice.
Of course the “beat the trolls to the punch” post is completely witless. Even brevity can’t inspire quality with Tunison.
It was good, then, that in response, you chose to go with “long and witless.” Nice work.
Bahahahahaha. Ape sucks. Squeelers suck.
This guy sucks –> [www.youtube.com]
Wow. I mean, just wow. Like Ape said, this would be a lot worse if they hadn’t just won a Super Bowl. Some teams just can’t hold their titles, I guess.
So hey, Steelers fans, cheer up! You’ll have a decent draft pick next year which you can use to draft an offensive linemen that, you know, don’t suck.
/last night’s game easily knocked two years of Big Ben’s career
//only AFC teams I’m scared of in January: Chargers, Pats, Steelers
Steelers fans, now you know what a stunning collapse feels like. Sucks huh. And Ape, I did call it. I said if the Steelers lost to the Ravens they were done. Though to be honest, didn’t see them collapsing against the Raiders and Browns. Thats shocking.
GODDAMNIT! Ah, well, next year, bitches.
Though to be honest, didn’t see them collapsing against the Raiders and Browns. Thats shocking.
So basically, it’s like I said, you didn’t call it. STFU.
Some teams just can’t hold their titles, I guess.
And some teams just can’t win playoff games.
/some teams like the Colts
//Colts followed their one non-choke this decade by losing their first playoff game
///no one likes Monkey Business outside his circlejerk of Indiana retards
Ah Ape, just roll out out your 6 pack of SB championship DVDs, curl up on a couch with Jean Grey and enjoy. What else are you going to do?
As a Steeler fan, I take comfort in that fact that the Bengals are perennial, pathetic fucking losers. They will get ass raped by purple heebus and the Vikes. Then, they will choke in the first round of the playoffs.
I wonder how China Jack feels.
I dunno about about the Bengals getting raped this week. Their ‘D’ is Oz like good, by which I mean, no matter how tight you clench your ass, they will open up a nice big rapey hole in you.
I said if the Steelers lost to the Ravens they were done.
The Steelers weren’t done when they lost to the Ravens. They were done when they lost to the Bears, Bengals, Bengals again, Chiefs, Ravens, Raiders and Browns.
It really must suck to be Ape today. If it makes you feel any better, I’ve been a Saints fan since I was born and we just NOW have a good team.
/39 years old
//still worth the wait
Turley: Steelers have won two of previous four SBs. I don’t expect any sympathy.
Meanwhile, the haters are being predictable enough with the “I guess the Steelers have no fans now because all the bandwagoners are leaving” for it not to be as painful as I expected.
What a miserable piece of shit game! Damnit. How the hell do they justify putting that shit on TV?!? The winning QB posted numbers you would expect a down syndrome patient to put up and the leading rusher was a fucking WR.
Ohio. What a worthless bitch of a state. Cold as hell and nothing worthwhile in the whole place.
Fuck that was bad. I just can’t get over how awful that shit was. How the fuck did that team win the Super Bowl less than 12 months ago?

I’m really happy the Browns won – I’m really fucking pissed that everyone is talking about how the fucking Steelers lost and there is no mention of the Browns winning.
I’m also pretty fucking confident in saying that the Browns defense forcibly penetrated the Steelers offense last night.
Fuck the haters.
/bleeds black and gold
//hemorrhaging actually.. in….. nice……….warm………………..bath……
@ me- And to finish my thought, I’d go out on a limb and say that said rape is why the Browns won.
By the way, how does the NFL Network manage to schedule the most god-awful shitty games for Thursday nights? You’d think a network owned by the NFL would have a little more clout in landing some decent matchups that are likely to result in some offensive fireworks.
@ SSB – If you want all offense, right a letter to the Ginger Hammer asking him to schedule the Saints / Colts for every Thursday. 80 combined points bores me personally.
You’d think a network owned by the NFL would have a little more clout in landing some decent matchups that are likely to result in some offensive fireworks.
You think they’re gonna cheat networks that are paying them billions of dollars out of good games? Please. They know they can stick bad games on NFL Network because hardcore football fans are gonna watch them anyway.
Dammit Forman! I told you it wasn’t lupus!
What does FMT mean?
Did the Steelers defense get old all at once? I know that Polamalu is out, but they don’t look even remotely the same.
Fuck the NFL Network and their greedy Jewery. I’m Jewish, I can say this. OO thank you for allowing me to glare into 1/10 of the game, thank you so much, because I don’t wanna piss money away so I can enjoy such great match-ups every Thursday!
/Still bitter about not being able to watch the Jets Bills game.
The Steelers got Snooki punched by Josh Cribbs.
Aren’t the NFL Network games available on-line? The one on Thanksgiving was.

/I’m a jerk, I can say this
“and the leading rusher was a fucking WR.”
No, He’s not a Wide Receiver. He’s the best special teamer in football who happens to run the ball well.
“Ohio. What a worthless bitch of a state. Cold as hell and nothing worthwhile in the whole place.”
There isn’t a fucking fence around the state keeping people in. I’d love to hear the merits of your fine state so I can shit all over that.
Tebow…No, they give you every fourth drive randomly, and the rest is some assembly of douche bags, analyzing what you could be watching, but not telling you about specific plays, and just pissing you off in general. I want to watch Nachos poorly thrown passes in person, I want to see the embarrassment on Edwards face when he drops that pass damnit! Not hear about it from some asshole.
G.G….why the fuck would I pay a cent to watch anything happen in Cleveland, outside of the Lebron announcing he’s going to play for the Knicks?
/ Understands the shit storm he could potentially catch for bring up the Knicks
/ Tom Brady has infant sized genitals.
Honestly, this didn’t feel as good as I thought it would. Maybe it’s because we’re 2 and frickin’ 11 and still six Super Bowl rings behind the Steelers…
NFL Network goes with regional/division rivalries to try and drum up some interest for their games but so far it hasn’t worked.
/their Draft coverage is still better than ESPN’s.
So Ape sells out by dating a Masshole, and now both his beloved Stillers and her hometown Greatriots are in freefall. Rather poetic, if you ask me.
I won’t say anything because there’s a chance right now that the Pats could be headed for the same fate.
On the bright side, the Steelers are still better than the Skins and your record of 6 Lombardi trophies is in absolutely no danger.
@Zone: Yeah, the Bengals will get raped by purple jesus IF Brittfar doesn’t commence to GUNSLINGIN for three quarters
I don’t think Sportscenter actually has “highlights” from that game.

C’mon 289, Trent Edwards is not that competent.
I have no beef with actual Steelers fans, but this the current census of Steeler Nation.
10% currently reside in western PA
20% grew up in western PA, but now live out of state
30% grew up elsewhere but raised by parents from Western PA
40% have no geographical ties to western PA, but have jumped on the bandwagon in past few years with the two recent Super Bowl victories, and will now abandon Steelers for another team.
If PJ rushes for some dumbass line like 60 yards on 20 carries again, I am officially going to start worrying about my Purple Penetrators.
Even after a heartbreaking loss, Ape grabs his lunchpail and goes to work, scrappily defending his boys with the familiar blue collar, workaday grit that Pittsburgh has seen in its denizens and indeed its football team since the town’s very conception.
Yet another devastating loss for my team, certainly. Was it painful – of course it was. Did I get a conference call from Browns-fan friends after the game? You bet. But you know what? The Steelers have won two SB’s in the past four seasons and therefore I cannot complain too much or too long. The Browns (and Chiefs and Raiders) can have their wins. I will take the rings, thanks.
//regards Redskins, bruises face with palms
As a Bengals fan, this pleases me. Not in a ‘fuck the steelers’ sort of way. In a ‘do you know how hard it is to beat a good team three times in one season?’ way. Now if the Ravens can miss the playoffs, the Bengals will be set.
/Still losing to the Chargers at home in the second round. Sigh.
Asking, then answering, rhetorical questions in your comments? Still retarded.
Beaten by the Mangidiot?!
Sending Big Ben to Jenny Craig in the off-season might be more effective than firing the offensive coordinator…
As a Browns fan, I actually prefer the Steelers to the Who Dey douche bags…talk about band wagon fans. Fun fact, since the Browns rejoined the league in 1999, the Browns and Bengals have won the same amount of playoff games (i.e., 0).
Would you like a rewrite, then, someone? I can oblige just this once.
It was painful and I got a conference call from friends who are Browns fans and it sucked.
Voila. Just for you, big guy.
Interested in a rewrite, then, someone?
The loss was painful. Friends who are also Browns fans called me to gloat and it rather sucked.
There, just for you big guy.
@Ape: Good point, I suppose.
Ape – Sorry about your season but I look forward to the resulting hate keeping us warm through the rest of the year. It’s like an early Christmas present. Give ’em Hell.
Bitter Ape = Better Content
Steelers this year just like Packers last year. High expectations after a great season (altho the Pack only got to the NFC Champ game in Brett’s last game) then lost 6 of their last 7 games last year to go 6-10.
Ravens fans shouldn’t gloat too much either. I witnessed them Monday night and the Packers shut them down almost totally. Only way they scored was two very “iffy” PI penalties in the end zone. Met a bunch of nice Ravens fans touring Lambeau Tuesday though.
“Though to be honest, didn’t see them collapsing against the Raiders and Browns. Thats shocking.”
“So basically, it’s like I said, you didn’t call it. STFU.”
obit, you kinda got owned right there.
(i)30% grew up elsewhere but raised by parents from Western PA(/i)
If missing the playoffs is the price of winning a Super Bowl every few years, oh fucking well. I will remain faithful to the Black and Gold!!
/shout out to all my family in Beaver, PA
I don’t know HTML coding, BTW
I think the answer is more Dennis Dixon. Since he can line up as a QB, WR, or RB threat, we can nickname him Slash.
Use “<" instead of "("
“30% grew up elsewhere but raised by parents from Western PA”
Also guilty. I grew up in Chicago. Imagine my surprise at my first live Steeler game when good old Jeff shanks a couple and the place goes apeshit.
I really would like the bandwagon to die. The team plays better when the entire nation thinks they can’t be a threat. They’ll still travel better than anyone else in the league even when they post a losing season. I was worried about this year. This team, this organization in the last 10 years, has a tough time showing up for the easy wins, and seems to play the best when all the odds are stacked against them.
[www.youtube.com] — Other than the rings, best moment of the past decade.
Is it too late to come here to point and laugh?
Steeler fans should be a little worried that Matt Millen likes their personnel!
Wait, That’s the sound of one-hand clapping.
Put the bag back on your head Munoz
i dont know about obit but i called this, been calling it wrong for six fucking years, but i called it. time to revel in the win cause it may be awhile till the next. at least the browns end all hope by week 3 not week 13
