Have at it Steeler Nation – Browns Pukes are on the Attack

Miller smacks a Brown
In Wednesday’s edition of “Scouting the Enemy,” I spoke about the division rival Browns, and how the Steelers would get back to form and top the Clowns twice in 2010. Well, seems that the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s website –, picked up on the piece, and posted it in their afternoon article called “Starting Blocks.”

Here is what they had to say about Steelers Gab: is a website devoted — duh! — to the Steelers. Today’s entry on “Scouting the Enemy,” by writer Matt Loede, has a couple of surprises. The first is that it is coherent. The second is that it’s not written in crayon. Who knew?

But some things don’t change, including the rivalry between Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

While that wasn’t so bad, some of the rather juvenile comments by Browns fans is downright laughable. Here are just a few to chew on:

When the Steelers finish dead last with no offense, Pittsburgh will be looking up and they will my brown and orange crack that they can kiss.

And my favorite comment so far:

Somebody should tell that idiot Steeler fan poster, whoever the hell he is, quit yapping less about how bad the Browns are going to be this year and concentrate more on worrying about the state of affairs on his own team.

These Steelers fans don’t want to hear it, but if they get off to a poor start without Big Ben, this could turn out to be a long season for them. They don’t have a lot of depth at receiver or on the OL, not much at running back to speak of, and having to do this without Bangin’ Ben is not conducive to a good start. Their defense is still good, but is it good enough to carry them through the first half of the season? Or even further than that?

This could be a .500 season, Steelers fans–or even worse! Get used to that possibility because it could happen.

And I have seen a couple Browns dolts leaving comments on the post as well. So Black and Gold Nation, have at it. Leave a comment on the site for Ohio’s largest Newspaper, and leave a comment on our “Scouting the Enemy” piece as well.

We know what the final outcome will between between the two teams this year, but it’s time to put Clown fans in their place. So have at it!

    Sorry to burst your bubble, dude, but I think the Steelers are pretty much done for the decade. As was clearly evident last year, the Cowher spell has begun to fade and you guys don’t have a coach.

    The team most likely will continue to splinter and fade. Remember, even LeBeau was a bit of a wimp on his own back in Cincy. Cowher’s afterglow kept things rolling for a few years, but last season you fell on your faces. Your quarterback’s turning into a flake, and holes are growing in your defense.

    The Rooneys, in a misguided stab at tradition, will keep Tomlin long after its become clear to everyone that he’s not a Super Bowl or even playoff calibre coach. So, relief is simply not on the horizon.

    The Steelers will finish last in the AFC North in 2010 and its all but a fait acompli that they will remain celler dwellers well into mid decade. Meanwhile, things are only looking up for the Browns. It’s much like we’re passing each other on an escalator.

    I like how the Steeler-fan author begged for backup and got…

    more Browns fans!

    You have been a bandwagon team bigger than the Red Sox and Yankees for a decade! You know what happens to bandwagon fan bases when their team misses the playoffs and loses their star QB?


    R.I.P. Bandwagon fan base!

      The biggest band wagon just collapsed once LBJ made the best move of his life going to South Beach!

        You live under a rock, right?

        You really think LBJ’s jersey sales are going to go down now that he is “taking his talents to South Beach” (the new euphemism for masturbation, by the way).

        You really think basketball compares to football?

    Granted last season the Steelers Defense faltered late in games (without Polamalu) but our Defense finished yet again in the top 5. I can assure you that this season the Steelers running game led by Mendenhall will be explosive. Roethlisberger had career highs last season however this season he will not post as many stats becuase hopefully we will become a running oriented team with a shutdown defense. Congratulations Cleveland, you beat us for the first time in 4 years. Can you explain to me how the Browns are on the up? Harrison could potentially become a nice runningback, however he will not be able to maintain the entire workload the hole season, 40 carries pergame is far too many. With the exception of Joe Thomas your O-Line is worse than the Steelers. The Browns do not have a starting QB, and please spare that garbage about Wallace and Delhome. You have atleast three years if McCoy might become effective. And best of all, your defense is any other typical Browns defense…Terrible! Also how does it feel to lose the only ray of hope for your collapsing city?

      Dear The Tony,

      It was actually longer than four years. You had 12 games in a row. Now we have one.

      That is “how the Browns are on the up.” Rob Ryan and Eric Mangini dialed up blitz packages that would (and did) impress even Dick “Better Coach than Tomlin the Super Bowl Inheritor Ever will be” LeBeau.

      Your arguments are rehashings of what we already have heard, except your laughable comment about the Steelers O-line being better, when they give up some of the highest sack numbers in the NFL, and your run game vanished last year.

      While the Browns O-line, on the other hand, has two pro-bowlers (soon to be three with first-rounder Alex Mack coming into his second year), run-blocked for the 8th best rushing offense in the NFL last year (most of which came in four games!), and averaged almost 200 rushing yards per game in the last quarter of the season when the Steelers were swooning and quitting on their overpaid coach, and last but not least, breaking one of the great Jim Brown’s rushing records.

      But you just threw that O-line comment out there because you’re used to the Steelers O-line being better; I know. I understand. This last decade has been good to you.

      But I have news for you. Alan Faneca is gone. Hartwig is at retirement’s door. Starks is gone. Simmons is gone. Your O-line is gone.

      Pouncey looks good though. But a rookie center and a couple of aging (never great but decent) vets in Colon, Essex, Kemoeatu, does not an Offensive Line make.

        I don’t know about you, but my wife and I (her family is from Castle Shannon and Millvale) are both glad the Browns finally got back into it, even though she’s a Steelers fan.

        This rivalry is back. That’s the main thing. And when it’s on, it’s the best rivalry in sports.

        Here’s to more freezin’ ass cold wild card games!

    Lets make a list of why Cleveland sucks:

    1.) Drew Carey
    2.) The thought that theres a curse for why the city cant win a championship…(theres no bad luck just bad players)
    3.) Shawn Rodgers appearently thinks its ok to bring loaded guns onto an airplane.
    4.) Crybaby LBJ doesnt even want to stay in his hometown.
    5.) Browns fans actually go on Steelers websites and rip them instead of going onto their own sites and try to form whatever coherent thought that might actually pop into their worthless heads.
    6.) The one team that might actually be as bad as the Pirates is the Indians.
    7.) Browns fans try to say the won NFL championships and pass them off as they mean something of worth. C’mon there was like 6 teams in that league.
    8.)The Browns mascot is a bulldog but the team has nothing to do with a dog, other than being in the NFL doghouse every year.
    9.)Cleveland might as well be in West Virginia for all the stupid rednecks that live there.
    10.)Making me waste this time thinking about Cleveland

      I can’t believe someone from Pittsburgh just called Cleveland people rednecks. Get back to burning your trash, hilljack!

    I did have respect for Browns fans as they are always there for their team thick and thin. Now though they are reminding me of Bengals fans who habitually suck cock and when they do one good thing like remembering to wipe their asses they talk shit, keep talking shit bitches we will see when the season starts.
