Pittsburgh at Kansas City (19-35)
Submitted by Ed Hodakowski
Mr. and Mrs. McMillen,
Last Saturday was my second excursion to Arrowhead,
the first being a Monday-Nighter last year in October. Let me tell you
firsthand that no matter how bad it looked on T.V., it was much worse in
person. We had incredible seats... 4th row, endzone. The first touchdown by
Pittsburgh took place about twenty feet in front of me, and I swear that I
could've reached out and taken the ball out of Edwards' hands. The second
drive, field goal, and thoughts of me actually getting to watch the first
Pittsburgh upset this year. Then the penalties, injuries and turnovers
began. I've been a die-hard fan since my high school, Steel-curtain dynasty
days, and considered myself fortunate to be stationed overseas during the
bleak eighties and unable to watch what I thought were the lowest depths to
which the Steelers could sink. Having to sit tight while obnoxious,
unwashed, bearded hillbillies screamed smug obscenities at Kordell and our
fine team was intolerable. This humiliation will be vindicated next year, and
you can bet the farm that I will be in Arrowhead to watch it. Until next
year, when high draft picks and a new attitude will save us, I'll be
BLEEDING BLACK AND GOLD IN THE MIDWEST!
P.S.-Happy Holidays to you and your fine family!

This team flat out sucks. I've only been alive for 26 years and I've been a
Steeler fan for all of them and this is close to the lowest I've seen them.
There have been other dismal seasons... in the '80s when such gems as Mark
Malone, Scott Campbell, Brister, Woodley and other assorted bums where
running the show, but this may be worse.
The offensive line sucks. Anyone
who thinks Jerome Bettis is washed up is crazy. They can't block anyone... $#!t,
they can't even remember the snap count! I thought the receivers sucked
earlier in the season, but they actually have played better lately, although
there are no stars. Kordell Stewart is never going to be an NFL quarterback
Moving on, I actually like Tomczak. He is, however, over the hill and
is always good for 1-2 deadly INTs per game. At least he is moving
the team, though. And at least Tomczak has discovered the Steelers DO have a tight
end. I don't think Stewart hit one all year.
Defensively, it is almost
equally as despicable. The secondary is horrible. DeWayne Washington has to
go. He gets abused week after week. In addition, DeShea Townshend sucks
(when he plays). Scott I thought would be good, but he is constantly
hurt, so who knows with him? I do like Lee Flowers. Robo-Saftey, aka the tin
man, aka Scott Shields sucks, too. He is slower than my grandmom, and Travis
Davis can't tackle my grandmom. The linebackers are fine, and I still think
the D-LINE is okay, although at times they don't get enough pressure on the
quarterback. The defense mailed it in weeks ago. I believe after
the loss to Jacksonville, they officially threw in the towel.
I like Cowher,
but he, too, may even be wearing off. The part I hate most about this team is
that they stay in the game enough to keep you watching, yet you know what the
outcome will be. You know what the low point for me was? Do you remember
the last time the hated Brownies made the playoffs? I think it was '94. They
got pasted in Three Rivers like 29-9. Derrick Alexander dropped like 8
passes. The guy was so scared to go over the middle, or anywhere for that
matter. Fast Forward to '99, and that skinny, no-hands piece of garbage is
running for an 82 yard touchdown on a reverse... that is how far this team
has fallen. I will root on for the Steelers, but I predict it will get
worse before it gets better.
Already looking forward to the draft....

Oh, the pain. Time to break out the Chuck Noll 1969 speech!
