Jig,
One of the best games I have been to @ Heinz. Ranks up there w/ Pats on Halloween in 04, and Chicago in 2005. It was LOUD!

I was yelling for the fans to "get loud" about as much as I was yelling for the defense
to "get that ball."

On TV it sounded as though quite a few fans were loudly booing the offense as they went 3-16 on third downs conversions. 8)

Rightfully so. I call that negative reinforcement.

Good point. The first time I noticed the fan noise on tv was the boo birds.

Our fans often seem to get loud after a big play. Or when we have momentum. But when things aren't going well, it does tend to be quiet.

After the 1st half, I kept thinking to myself the defense has to score.

Appparently, this guy is a vendor! From NFL.com:


PITTSBURGH - DECEMBER 07: Tom Congdon, a Pittsburgh Steelers vender, entertains the crowd by dumping ice water over himself in fifteen degree weather while the Steelers played the Dallas Cowboys on December 7, 2008 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I was at the game, and I didn't hear any booing after failed third down conversions. There was plenty of booing after more sucky punts, though. Perhaps that is the booing that you folks were hearing out in TV Land.

Sucky punts? Huh? The Berg man averaged nearly 35 yards per kick. :shock: :shock: :shock:
