Steelers 0-3 Since Murtha'Move

Posted on 12/05/2005 11:18:16 AM PST by faithincowboys

Since Western Pennsylvania's own, Jack Murtha, betrayed his country, the Steelers have gone on a three game skid. Maybe I'm a kook, but I see a strong correlation.

It's never wise to include the phrase "Maybe I'm a kook" - the suspiction to post a one-word response "Yes" is too tempting. ;-)

Why couldn't Murtha have done it a weeke earlier, before the Stillers played the Browns.

I'm from Indy, and if you are right on this I would have rather taken a loss and have him keep his traitorous mouth shut than a win this way.

The correlation would be undeniable had the Steelers forfeited the games.

If you can get your typical Steeler fan to buy into this argument, Murtha will be recalled by the end of the year!

Aha, I can blame the Detroit Lions woes on John F Kennedy, since they haven't won a title since he was Prez.

You're right, but Murtha's crap did no favors to the Steelers. They can still turn it around, but he messed up their short term karma.

"Why couldn't Murtha have done it a weeke earlier, before the Stillers played the Browns."

Because it wouldn't have mattered. Even the Texans beat the Browns. :(
Now they've lost Edwards. Their former defensive line is performing well in Denver. Looks like they're headed towards another high draft choice to waste. I don't have faith in Crennel, he's learning on the job, and not learning fast enough. They went in leading at the half yesterday, and after the adjustments at half, came out and got whipped. (Coaching?)
The Browns have taken the place of the Bengals. Lots of high draft choices wasted. A culture of losing. The laughing stock of the NFL.

Seriously...

I know Murtha has made me , a Big Ben fan, actively root against the Steelers. I also hope bad things for Buffalo because it's Tim Russert's team. Russert recently graduated from the Dan Rather Partisan democrat Shill School Of Journalism. I freakin loved that Miami came all the way back on them yesterday. Couldn't have happened to a nicer POS.

I could see your point if the Steelers kept running out of their own end zone for endless 2-point-safetys...

I'm sick of trying to figure out why the Browns do these things, why everything happens to them, and sick of making excuses, so...I don't know what to say anymore.

It is clear that the Steelers are broken, worn out, and living hand to mouth. The NFL should pull out of Pittsburgh ASAP!

"I don't know what to say anymore."

I do... two words: They suck.

I used to live and die with the Browns. I guess I should be happy. I couldn't take the punishment anymore. So, now, I'm casually interested. I NEVER alter plans to watch the Browns. I don't buy their junk. I don't go see games. It's their right to field a crappy team, and continue to get coaches who can learn on the job. It's my right to ignore them and do more constructive things with my time.

I hate to break it to you, but Pittsburgh is not in Murtha's congressional district.

The Steeler's are losing because they've forgotten how to do the Iggy Shuffle.

Damn straight. And they should abandon Fallujahdelphia too... Lord knows those people are animals.... no use spending good money after bad any more. Yes, Fallujahdelphia is the cradle of our democracy, but the people that live there are fanatics who are incapable of running a one man one vote democracy. They can only be governed by strongman-- Rat machine bosses.

Wow.... a two-fer. It was the ICKY shuffle. Icky Woods was a RB for the Bengals.

If that were the case the Bears would be 0-12 since Illinois is represented by two traitorous senators and a few traitorous representatives.

Look rather at the lack of a running game. Two over-the-hill running backs and a kid is not going to get it done.

"Strong correlation" means "complete coincedence." Please adjust your decoder ring.

Murtha has little to do with the Steelers slide, unless perhaps he took out Marvel Smith's leg and applied butter to Willie Parker's hands. I hadn't read that.

People the world over claim the Steelers as their team. The Steeler disapora is huge.

But seriously, Johnstown is more like mid-to-south western-central PA.
