What's up my brothers in black and gold!!!

Huge Mountaineer (and Bronco) fan here.... I hail from Huntington WV (home of the Marshall Thundering Herd) so I know the Steelers like the back of my hand. I've been having some GREAT discussions with some of the members here (namely Steeler Fever ~ FrankWyt ~ John Stephens), so I figured I'd drop by and give you all a shout out!!! I've been throwing around the word "thug" too loosely when describing the Steelers.... and to me it meant something good (I'd love for my D to have a thuggish mentality - they're getting there slowly but surely).... but I have since learned that's not an accurate word to describe your beloved team.... bully is more like it. The Rooney's and the Steelers are as classy of an act as it comes, so just because a team intimidates everyone, DOES NOT make them a thug (like some of my former players - Brandon Marshall to name one).

I have nothing but respect for Dick LeBeau, Troy Polamalu, and Big Ben (who I believe Tim Tebow will become like with some more reps). May the best team win Sunday - which to the eye right now seems like you all, HANDS DOWN, but any given Sunday my friends.

What do you guys think will be the deciding factor for a Steelers victory Sunday? Can Tim Tebow and my offense rebound against the scariest D in football (sorry Ravens fans)? Anyways.... I've really, really enjoyed talking with you guys over at Mile High Pride, and I have to say it was my favorite discussion board so far with another team's fan base. Good luck people!!! I hope the altitude helps us gas your team.... we're gonna need all the help we can get.

P.S. There's been some discussion on my site that Troy Polamalu (the Mauri Warrior God of Battle) is overrated.... for the record, they're just hating. If he joined the Broncos tomorrow (I wish), every Denver fan in the world would recognize him as a top 3 Safety in football.
