The Ultimate Lambeau Leap

Story about a local guy trying to make the packer roster. People always root for the hometown kid.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday

That's a great story @honcho. I hope he does well. Never knew that much about the Packers. They come from humble roots. Good luck to them.

I don't know how many steel plants still exist in the Pittsburgh area, but I would imagine, that the number of homegrown alcohol stills outnumber steel industry plants. Maybe there is a push to rebrand the team.

They aren't the Steelers of yesteryear, either.

As far as the Steelers players, some seem to think it's a hub for marijuana. I know there are a few newer businesses that produce vodka and whiskey. Award winning, though I've never sampled them.

I'd say it was a mecca for the healthcare industry and robotics, today.

Given that knowledge, I'd be willing to call them by some other name. I haven't felt like they are my old team in many years. Change is constant.

Any suggestions on team names? hahaha Boy, did I set myself up with that one?!

Still, I hope they beat the crap out of the Saints. I can't imagine a football team full of them. Maybe a few in the whole of the NFL?

ps.: Here's an old article. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/money...ttsburgh_N.htm

This is the only mill I know that is still running and profitable. https://www.atimetals.com/businesses...s/default.aspx

@2ntnuf

Just got my sports illustrated in the mail today. They picked the Steelers over my Pats in the AFC game, then losing to Arizona in the SuperBowl.

Good news for the Patriots - they do better when they aren't the pick

Huh? What was that guy or gal drinking when they wrote that?

I don't know how good they are versus others. Also, injuries seem to plague teams.

LeVeon Bell is out for 3 or 4 games. I can't wait to hear the status of Pouncey. The one backup QB pulled a hammy in his first appearance. He's better than the alternative player, if Ben gets hurt.

I don't see how anyone can predict those things with much accuracy. It would have to be luck or something.

But, more importantly, why are you PhillyGuy and rooting for the Pats?! Seems like some form of blasphemy.

Seems like the Eagles(Iggles from where I'm from, like Stillers) would be your team.

Re: American football 2016 - NFL, NCAA, local HS and others.

its up for grabs- nobody looks dominating so who knows. My eyebrows got raised at the steelers beating the patriots in Foxboro in january. They had patriots as 1 seed overall. Steelers don't have a great record in Foxboro but who knows.

I have no ties to Philly. Chose this name in a moment of desperation. Now I'm stuck with it 😝😝😝

That's good, because the Chip Kelly era pretty much clipped the Eagles wings for the next five years. Raider Nation

I feel about them like I did about the old Dallas Cowboys super bowl teams the Steelers played many years ago.



I respect the talent and their record. I just can't...it's so difficult...to like them. hahaha


Steelers are taking the field.

Go Steelers!

9 minutes in. 7 - 0 Steelers go ahead.

Sorry Malaise and Philly. That may have been a little harsh, even though I was just messing around.

That was six minutes in. It's now 9 minutes into the game and it's 14 - 0 Steelers. What a nice pass and catch by Big Ben and Antonio Brown. Right up the sideline with a penalty on the defense, too.

It's early in the game. Who knows what will happen in the rest of the game?

It's all in fun. It's just sports

Brady just threw a TD to go up 9-0. Defense picked off Cam earlier.

Unfortunately this will be Brady's only action until October
