It has long been a tradition among Pittsburgh Steelers fans. You are rooting for the following teams:
- The Pittsburgh Steelers
- Whoever plays the New England Patriots
- Whoever plays the Baltimore Ravens
While some view rooting against specific teams to be a bit on the immature side, the reality is the majority of you reading this article do just that on a weekly basis. Since the Steelers didn’t make the playoffs, and the New England Patriots were eliminated by the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round of the AFC Playoffs, who are fans of the black-and-gold rooting for the rest of the way?
As for me, misery always loves company, so I will be rooting hard for the Titans to beat the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round next weekend, but if/when the Ravens are eliminated is when I lose rooting interest in the rest of the playoffs. Not that I won’t watch, but won’t be rooting hard for anyone that isn’t in my FanDuel lineup.
With that said, what are your feelings on the rest of the playoffs? This could be for just the AFC side of things, or for the NFC too. Is there a team you wouldn’t mind winning it all? What about a team you would rather walk over burning coals than witness them win a Super Bowl title?
Let us know what you think in the comment section below, and be sure to stick with BTSC as the Steelers embark on yet another lengthy offseason leading up to the 2020 regular season.
