    I was not aware that the "modern era" is 2001 to present and that 2 is more than 3. Thanks for the updates.

    Please find the nearest speeding semi/train and stand in front of it. Your genes must not be passed on.

    I understand that the quality of education in western PA is barely adequate at best, but seriously, 3 > 2.

    That's true, but the phrase "out due" really gives you a hint that the fool is a few bricks shy of a full load.

    What was that? I can't make out what your saying, it's all muffled, it's like you've got something meaty in your mouth or something. Oh well, I'm sure it wasn't important.

    I'm a homer and all, but tell the Steelers to come talk to us when they:

    Win another Super Bowl
    Have a LEAGUE MVP
    Win at least 18 games in ONE season
    Hold the 3 Longest winning streaks in NFL History (One Regular Season Games, and the other two Consecutive Wins)
    Have a player on their team that's in the arguement for greatest player in the history of the game
    Have a player that considered the greatest QB of all time
    Have an undefeated regular seasonn
    Get to atleast 4 Super Bowls
    Hold the all time Playoff consecutive win record
    AND beat a team in the Super Bowl by more than a touchdown after we hung a 40 burger on them.

    This conversation is stupid. Fun for Steelers fans, and Congrats to them, but stupid none the less.

    The father of a close friend is the former Sec. of Ed. for PA. I will see if he can call in some favors to get his HS diploma recalled. :)

    How can we be 2nd best when we beat you twice on Championship Sunday at Heinz field? You still have beat us in the playoffs and you've proven you still can't do that.........

    Seattle and Arizona, have to be the two worst SB opponents in the history of football. Play a real team without the help of Terry McCauley and see how you make out.

    The penalties were enough for Michaels to say "Mike Holmgren having flash backs"... eluding too the completely lopsided amount of calls the NFLs favoriate franchise was receiving.... that frustrated me...

    Warner had 100% full control of that ball at the end, and it was a pass, poor poor call by the refs in an attempt to just end it... Warner's hand is clearly in control moving forward with it...


    Hats off to the Steelers on the last drive.


    In the end that game was a copy cat of the year before that... The scrapy defensive team pulled out some amazing plays at the very end to win it. While the offensive team didn't do much all game, but did take the lead at the end, only to have gutzy amazing performances cancel it out.

    In the end, the Steelers should have won by a lot more, they played down to the cards, and could have, should have blown them out by 2nd quarter but kept kicking field goals instead.

    The cards gave me hope of an upset, but the steelers fought back to deny that.

    Overall impression of the season, no great team, no great performance, no real legendary competition, no highlights... this season was boring, slow, and uneventful.

    Plus a conference championship in addition. And spanking the Steelers on their home field for two championships. Plus a .719 winning pct for the Pats vs .661 for the Steelers.

    Get off this board, ass clown, and enjoy just your 2nd championship. That's right, judging from the stupidity of your post, you probably weren't even born when the Steelers won their first four.

    The Steelers win last night only further solidifies the Pats status as the team of the decade since they beat the Steelers twice on the way to 2 of those SB wins, both in Pittsburgh btw. The Steelers can claim that they are the team of the century with 6 SB wins but that's a totally different topic and should be looked upon by smarter people than I. The Pats are clearly the team of this decade.

    1) I am fascinated with the idea that the modern era began in 2000. We are clearly dealing with a pre-teen.
    2) The Steelers are arguably indeed the best team in the modern era, which began with the merger, and the first Super Bowl. I would argue that SF is that team, but the steelers certainly have one of the top franchises.
    3) The team of the decade is now still the patriots. A 2009-2010 win by the steelers would make that a virtual tie, with the patriots holding the first half of the decade, and the steelers the second.
    4) We will be the team of the decade by winning the next Super Bowl, or if neither of us wins.

    Today the Steelers and their Fans are talking about big plays and outstanding defense.

    The one thing that they will not talk about and the one thing that they should be most thankful for is Tom Brady's absence from the league.

    The Steelers win just cemented the resolve of Bill and Tom's desire to beat the hell out of the league next season. There will be no mercy.

    The Redskins won 2 superbowls in the 1980's....does that mean they are now the team of the 80's and not the Niners? What am I missing here?

    Trying to be objective...

    Since the "modern era" of the NFL begins, according to the League's own definition (see NFL HOF Website) with Bert Bell's becoming NFL commisioner in 1946 that's quite a compliment! In fact, it would argue that the Patriots are superior to Paul Brown's Browns, Lombardi's Packers, Landry's Cowboys and Grant's '49ers (to name just three teams that have won titles since that time). Thank you, but I'm not even sure I would agree with that. There can be a reasonable debate as to which is the greatest NFL Franchise of all time and the four teams I named above, along with the Steelers, all deserve to be in that discussion.

    If you're trying to say that the Pats have a legitimate claim to being the #2 Franchise of the Super Bowl era, I would agree with that, but still think that the Niners and Cowboys could lay claim to that title as well, though I do think the Pats belong seriously in the discussion. With six rings, the Steelers are clearly the number one Franchise of the entire SB era.

    If you're trying to say that the Steelers are the number one Franchise of the post-Cap era (1992/93 on), then I would disagree with you. I think the Patriots and Cowboys can each lay legitimate claim to that title.
