    Bring on the Rats!!!!!

    This thanksgiving, I'm hoping we stuff some Rats instead of turkeys. Our most hated rivals playing a game against us to stay alive in the hunt for the playoffs. It doesn't get any better than this.

    Lace em up. Strap em on. It's time to play some real football!!!!

    Im hoping for a classic game. I'm thinking we win 35-7.

    The Steelers are 1-5 on Thanksgiving, including the 1998 loss in Detroit in which captain Jerome Bettis caused considerable confusion by changing his overtime coin toss call in the middle of the flip.

    Ben Roethlisberger said on his 93.7 FM radio show that players dislike Thursday games “because it always comes with a short week. You can't expect the level of football to be as good as it would be on a full week's preparation and rest.”

    • The Steelers are the first team to play a Thursday night road game following a Sunday road game since the NFL began playing its current Thursday night schedule in 2008. Since 2006, NFL teams are 33-50 on the road in Thursday games.

    Bold Predictions:

    Worilds will get two sacks
    Woodley will get two sacks
    Troy will have a pick 6
    Brown will go for 150 receiving yards
    Bell will have 2 rushing Tds
    We win by double digits

    For those of you, who didn't read my first thread in a "Series" that I have started, here it
    is. This is from a thread titled..."Who is better for us, NYJ, or BALT to lose"...? Started this
    thread before the Browns game...


    I don't really need to look any farther than our own schedule to see who to root for...

    The Steelers have 5 of 6 left vs AFC teams, and 4 of 6 vs our own division.

    All the Steelers have to do is WIN!!!

    Let me ask all of you a question...

    When the Steelers were 0-4, were you laughed at by friends, co-workers, and family members that are not Steelers fans??

    Of course you were!! And they probable added something like...your done, Steelers suck...etc??

    Then at 2-6 we all got laughed at again when the Steelers got punked by the Raiders, and dismantled by the Pats*???

    Now, I'm not saying we're back, but at 4-6, how is this team even in the hunt for not only a WC, but the division??

    How would it feel to have the Steelers, who started 0-4, come back from the dead, and make the playoffs!!

    It hasn't been done since 1992. Chances are about equal as Lloyd Christmas had with Mary Swanson, but there is
    a chance.

    I know it would feel unbelieveable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now I don't have to tell you what to do, because you already know!!!!!

    We have to take a stand!!! A stand that we are not gonna take no more $h!t from nobody!!!

    We stand UNITED!!! We stand as ONE SteelerNation!!!! We stand together as brothers and sisters!!!!

    And we FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FIGHT until we can't fight no more!!!! And even after we can't fight no more, we
    never, ever give up!!!

    So I say to all of you...we take our first stand against the Cleveland Browns of the AFC North!!!

    I expect all of you to be, of course, FRRRROOOOTHING at the mouth like crazed dogs!!!!!!

    Here we go, y'all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here WE go!!!!

    STEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

    JD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PS...I will have the next thread of this series up by Wednesday...and it's going to be good!!!

    JD to be continued....

    Wow. None of those things are encouraging...

    Guess we'll have to cheer all the harder to overcome them...

    I read an article where John Harbaugh actually wants the Ravens to have a Thanksgiving night game every year. They love it.

    I miss Ray Ray. I still have massive hatred for them, but Lewis retiring took a pinch of hatred away.
