Steelers fans, who are you rooting for in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs?

New, comments

The Steelers are out of the race, but don’t think fans don’t still have a strong rooting interest.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh Steelers fans, like almost every NFL fan base, are a rabid bunch. They love the black-and-gold, and at times love to hate the black-and-gold. However, when the Steelers aren’t a part of the equation, for whatever reason, the fans develop a strong bias for, and against, certain teams.

With that in mind, as the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs is about to kickoff in a few short hours, I wonder who the majority of Steelers fans are rooting for in the games both Saturday and Sunday. This isn’t who you think will win, but who you want to win.

There is a big difference there between the two.

As an example, I root against the New England Patriots for a multitude of reasons. Their cheating past, them constantly being a thorn in the side of the Steelers and ultimately because I get sick of hearing about them.

Call it petty, but I call it truthful.

I also don’t want the Dallas Cowboys to win anything other than a participation trophy. Why? I can’t stand their fan base, and don’t want either the Patriots or Cowboys to win a sixth Lombardi trophy to tie the Steelers in this category.

So, with that said, who are you rooting for in the games this weekend? Vote in the polls below, and always feel free to let us know why you you are rooting this way in the comment section below.
