    Old lady at 40 seconds. Why crush the Patriots? They should be more worried about the Browns. Do they actually think they have a rivalry with the Pats? Don't you have to win a game once in a while to be a rival?

    For a team that has won 5 championships, they're a pretty insecure bunch. I can't wait for the annual Steelers beatdown this season.

    they did end our 21 game winning streak back in 2004. in that game joey porter went around looking like an ***** screaming that the "pats couldn't get to their level. never ever ever" about a dozen times on the sidelines. then we clocked them in the AFC championship with brady having a 103 degree fever the night before.

    Some of them are pretty cool...that Dino 5 Rings guy is pretty Legit...I dig him a lot.

    Anthony Smith...big long sigh...

    Most Steelers fans dislike the Pats because of the 2 AFC Title game losses. (One by Bledsoe, One by Brady). That sticks in our craw. But I did get over both those losses by winning # 5. So the other fans are just looking for a Legit Rival to yell about. The Browns and Bengals are both pretty Pathetic in our eyes, having Dominated them over the past few years. Beating the Browns 9 times in a row and eliminating the Bengals from the playoffs 2 times in the last 3 seasons. So Steelers fans want a Rival. Ravens were cool to hate for a while, that's some real rivalry there, but they are so down, its boring to hate them. We proved that last year on Monday night football. So the Pats are in line for us as a Rival simply because they are Legit. Jacksonville is there too, but we don't play them often enough. We got them 2 times last year and they won both, so this years game has high interest. But the Pats we seem to play every single year. Colts...we own...Cowboys come to our house and thats a fun Rivalry. But the Pats...at least the Pats give us a real legitimate team that we can root against as being the 3 time winner to our 1 win in this decade. So that's why the Pats are "hated" by the Steelers fans.

    At least...I think that's why. Who knows really. I know I have no jealousy, just a natural desire to beat one of the other great teams in the AFC. Each year, the pats are there, and we are there. Minus Ben's faceplant year.

    For fans of a team that have won 3 championships in the past decade, we can be a pretty insecure bunch, too. That's what fans do.

    They are fun games to watch. When the Jags first came into the league they were in our division. They built their team in the same style as ours from the begining. Solid Running game, Solid Run Defense. So the teams have always been pretty evenly matched. For a while, the games were home team won all the games to start the series. Then it flipped and the away team started to win the games. Its pretty even now, I think its jags up 12-8 right now in the series, including the playoff game last year. We've only met 20 times, so its a good matchup but not a rivalry the way we'd like it to be. Plus, they don't win the South often enough to play us. We win the north often enough to have to play the winners of the east, west, south each year. That's why we play the Pats as often as we do.

    I was waiting for Dino to respond before I said anything - thanks for your comments Dino. I've felt for a while that Steeler fans seemed to be more obsessed with their hatred for the Pats than any other NFL team - perhaps more than even fans of the Colts or any team within the division. Those two AFCCG, when the Steelers (and fans) were extremely confident of a win, had to be very difficult to let go of - just as our loss to the Giants last year and the Colts two years ago were.

    Other than the regular season win by the Steelers in 2004 which ended the streak - which the Pats avenged in the playoffs - the Pats have won every regular season and playoff game between the two teams since 2001. That many losses over that length of time has to be very frustrating, especially when the team and fans have not been able to get their revenge. For Pats fans who are also Red Sox fans, just think how frustrating it was and how much you hated the Yankees for the thirty years prior to 2004.

    Now add in the video taping controversy, fueled by comments by Hines Ward and Joey Porter, and the result is a very vocal group of Steelers fanatics that have convinced themselves that Pittsburgh would have two more championships if not for the Pats taping of opponents defensive signals. At this point no amount of logic or reasoning will be heard by those that are most vocal; the Patriots are going to be hated by these people for a long, long time. To them, the Patriots are a burglar that broke into their home and stole the family heirlooms.


    Embrace the hate, it's here to stay.

    I get why some very vocal fans of the Steelers "hate" the Pats. Its no different then when they hated the Broncos in the 80s or the Bills in the 90s. Or even the Raiders in the 70s. Pats are just next in the line to be another great team in the AFC. We are always there in the mix. Every Decade. When we wen't busy losing to Marino in the 80s, it was losing to Elway. When Jim Kelly wasn't beating us in the 90s, our QB was doing a good enough job of losing games himself. Neil O. Bubby B. Mike T. Kordell S.

    That's what I tell my fellow Steelers fans. Also, the series record is Steelers 12, Pats 7. That means, at one point, prior to the Pats getting really good, it was what...11-3. Happy the Pats have closed the gap on that one.

    Positive attitude for my team. And a love of the Game. That's what I am, that's what I bring.
