SparkPeople Pittsburgh Steelers Team Messageboard A group for Pittsburgh Steelers Fans.... The Black & Gold Nation!!! SparkPeople Pittsburgh Steelers Team Messageboard Hello Yinzers I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. It's good to find a team of fellow Steeler fans. I am not much of a joiner, but this may bring me out of my shell. Here we go Steelers! Thu, 29 Dec 2016 08:07:13 EST new member Hi all new to this team. Excited to be part of Steelers Nation! Thu, 14 Apr 2016 22:38:26 EST New here. Am I a big time Steelers fan since I was a teenager. Married a great guy from Pittsburgh. And have gone to 4 games! <BR> Nice to meet everyone. <em>524</em> Thu, 12 Nov 2015 12:11:05 EST Hi everyone! My name is Heather and I am a 34 year old mom of 1. My son is 7 and has aspergers syndrome, my husband is a truck driver and is out 2 weeks at a time, and my mom (who lives with us) was just recently diagnosed with cancer. Life around here is pretty stressful right now and I don't get alot of time to focus on working on me. When I'm not stressing out about everyone else I like to play video games, mostly sim type games or tycoon games.I am also going back to school to get my high school diplo... Tue, 20 Jan 2015 02:43:28 EST Newbie I've lurked around the site for a couple of months. New things tend to overwhelm me so I've stayed quiet and hidden. But I guess its time to come out of the corner and using this to actually help me. A little about me, i'm 37, and fat. There I said it. I am Fat. I hate being fat so I am just hoping being active here will help me stay more motivated and less discouraged. Mon, 12 Jan 2015 23:14:41 EST Hello Hello from Illinois. I have been a Steelers fan since Terry Bradshaw was Quarterback! I'm 47, married with two teenagers. Looking to finally lose weight and move more with fellow Steelers fans. I like to scrapbook, read, watch movies and fall weather. Looking forward to hearing from all. <BR> <BR> Valerie <em>465</em> Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:32:56 EST Hello from PA Hello, my name is Heather and I am a 34 year old mom of 1 boy. I joined this site to get support and motivation when needed because I have struggled with my weight for my entire life. My main goal for losing weight is to have my own child (my son is my husbands unfortunately not biologically mine) and overall be healthier to take care of my family. If anyone has any questions for me or would just like to be friends, just send me a message. Blessed be everyone. Wed, 21 May 2014 00:34:04 EST I'm Back!!1 I am back to faithfully using Spark People. I thought that I could do it without tracking and using my teams for support. That was a mistake but all I can say is I tried. Hopefully, I'm on track to start losing again. Mon, 24 Mar 2014 13:28:52 EST Over 40 with 50 plus pounds to lose! I was tired of the diet phases. I recently had surgery and it sent me into menopause. Gained about 50 pounds. I am ready to take it off!!! Mon, 17 Mar 2014 17:55:21 EST Need help/support I have lost a few pounds and was feeling very good about myself. I went shopping to get some new clothes and nothing still fits me and I look horrible in everything. I really feel like giving up, feeling like why not eat and be happy, losing weight is not making me happy. I don't want to give up but am feeling defeated. Help and or support is needed and appreciated. <em>15</em> Sat, 15 Feb 2014 16:32:10 EST 22 and wanting to change My name is Nicole. I am 22 years old and I am 173.6 pounds. I was a size 3 (120lbs) all through out highschool and in the four years since graduation, I have gone up to a size 13. I have never really been a fan of healthy food but I am trying. I want to not only be healthy but I want to lose at least 40 to 50lbs and look fit. I have made a few changes in life over the past year and more changes will come in the future. Sat, 18 Jan 2014 18:25:47 EST New to the team Hi Everyone, <BR> I just wanted to say hi and that I'm excited to join my fellow Steeler fans on losing weight. <em>381</em> Sat, 4 Jan 2014 12:29:50 EST Introduction Happy Holidays!! <BR> <BR> Hi!

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 17:01:23 EST 6-10 season at best, I want them to win way more! last week's victory against the Ravens does NOT mean the Steelers are back in the game.....imo. Thu, 24 Oct 2013 11:53:34 EST L.C. Greenwood's death So sad to hear of the death of L.C. Greenwood. At 67, he was way too young to have died of natural causes. What a shock! Mon, 30 Sep 2013 21:38:57 EST What did you do like a Steeler today? Today, I saw a rare opportunity to exercise and pounced on it like Troy Polamalu. My kids were quiet, no one needed anything, I didn't have anything to do really... so I jumped on my bike and went flying around the culdesac with my long hair flying, lol. Wed, 10 Jul 2013 23:12:34 EST Todd Haley has to go! Todd Haley did terrible for us last year. He is NOT interested in what our Million dollar quaterback has to say. I say dump Todd haley, get a few good offensive linemen and let Big Ben do his thing, he did it before when he was allowed to have input and he can do it again unleashed. Todd Haley has SQUANDERED our Steelers with his Dink and Dunk schtick, the reason he makes Ben do it is BECAUSE Haley can't coach offensive linemen. <BR> <BR> Wallace is gone, WHY!? Harrison can go, he's done. Wh... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 12:24:46 EST an 8 - 8 season? after last night's loss to the Titans I am beginning to think that we only win home games and if that's so then it's an 8 - 8 season for sure... <BR> <em>24</em> Fri, 12 Oct 2012 05:38:10 EST football snacking Hi all - <BR> <BR> Football season is just around the corner and I am so ready for my Steelerz and cooler weather (I live in Las Vegas). <BR> <BR> But I loooove to eat during football games. It's the stress! I could probably eat an entire bag of chips on 3rd down stress alone. Anyway, do you guys have any recommendations for healthy, fun, and TASTY alternatives for football snacking?

I am looking for the support I miss from others whom live in the same area. I am thinking of joining Anytime Fitness by the new Get Go on Route 8 in Glenshaw. Is there anyone out there that can help push me along. I have motivation to "think" about losing weight but not the support to push me when all is said and done.

Tue, 22 Mar 2011 10:00:26 EST Letter I got from NFL National Football League <BR> <BR> Dear NFL Fan, <BR> <BR> When I wrote to you last on behalf of the NFL, we promised you that we would work tirelessly to find a collectively bargained solution to our differences with the players' union. Subsequent to that letter to you, we agreed that the fastest way to a fair agreement was for everyone to work together through a mediation process. For the last three weeks I have personally attended every session of mediation, which is a process our clubs ...

Sat, 12 Feb 2011 20:48:18 EST 10 top super bowls I was watching the NFL network last night and they did this countdown. Everything else I've watched pretty much has highlighted Green Bay, Dallas, Indianapolis and other teams but rarely anything about the Steelers. <BR> Low and behold!!! The 2008 Super Bowl was #1!!!! What a surprise! <BR> They had some people on there making comments and some of them were very adamant that it was but this one guy was actually put out about it. <BR> Joe Greene was in the top 100 players.

On Wednesday, LeBeau told NFL Network, "I promise you, if I’m coaching, it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers." Earlier, Alex Marvez of had this quote from LeBeau: “With this defense, with this group of men, they’ll have to run me out of here.” Wed, 26 Jan 2011 22:40:51 EST Terrible Towel stupid?<BR>rible-towel-is-terribly-stupid/#cntnt <BR> <BR> I already replied to this article, as did many others. Let's hit him hard.

Aaron Rodgers, after living a full and happy life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around and, they came to a modest little house with a faded Packer flag in the window. “This house is yours for eternity, Aaron,” said God, “This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.” <BR> <BR> Aaron felt special indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up to the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with a black and gold sidewalk... Wed, 26 Jan 2011 17:00:04 EST Team Super Bowl Challenge???? Hey, how about we all have a Super Bowl Sunday challenge to all make a particular goal. Whatever that may be. We can get on here on a post and share whatever we've accomplished during the 2 weeks. <BR> I had already set a goal to be at a particular weight by the Super Bowl, just in case they went and planned everything out so that it's a day I can eat and relax and just enjoy the game (fingers crossed). If my weight goes up a little, it's okay and expected but I'll be right back in there o... Mon, 24 Jan 2011 11:23:17 EST Now on to Dallas!!!!!!! Had me worried in the second half but, heck, the Jets were/are a better team than they played like in the first half. The Pack will be a challenge for sure!

My name is Kathy & I was pleasantly surprised to find this forum! I might not be a fan as long as some of you folks, but I gain momentum with each passing year. The real clincher was when our daughter moved to Pittsburgh in 2007 to start a 5 year doctoral program @ Duquesne University. In 2008, she attended the parade with a front row view after they won their 6th Super Bowl! I was SO jealous! Each time my hubby & I visit Pittsburgh, we love it even more. Besides getting down to my dream ... Tue, 11 Jan 2011 20:58:43 EST Steelers week off Who would have thought our Steelers would be in the #2 spot? I am so happy for them, but this puts me in a position of rooting for the Ravens. <em>281</em> Sat, 8 Jan 2011 18:11:03 EST What Kemoeatu's prob today? Was he on something today? I have never seen him behave like that during a game. I was very unhappy tonight during the game. He actually took a swing! <BR> That's is not only grounds for fines, etc. but where's his pride and dignity for himself and his team? Pouncey can fend for himself and Kemoeatu should walk away. <BR> Sure glad they were able to not just win, but get a nice win. I saw a couple of calls I didn't think were right like the one touchdown. The commentators didn't agree w... Thu, 23 Dec 2010 23:55:45 EST New to SparkPeople I just found this wonderful website and will start sharing my workouts and hopefully picking up tips from others. I am mainly a runner and I hope to do at least 5 half marathons in 2011. I did 3 in 2010 my first year back running since 2002. I lost 55 pounds since this time last year by eating better and then running. I am never going back to that unhealthy lifestyle again. I welcome the opportunity to meet new friends here as well. Tue, 21 Dec 2010 11:36:20 EST OUCH I think it's a shame that things are SO different with the defense when Troy isn't able to play. Saw an article which complained about the offensive coordinator and how badly he's handling things. <BR> As usual, we got stuck with the wonderful choice of watching Denver and Oakland or nothing. We chose nothing. <BR> The article said the OC made did the wrong call when they were stuck in the end zone and the author of the article felt like he was the reason they lost the game. <BR> It was a... Mon, 20 Dec 2010 16:00:17 EST Does the NFL hate the Steelers article So this guy does this video article about how he thinks that the NFL hates the Steelers. He thinks they don't like that they have won so many superbowls, he thinks that they don't like that they have lots of Probowlers, etc. or that the Rooneys are good people and have had them for so long. <BR> He thought it was ridiculous how those two guys on Sunday weren't fined very much. <BR> The guy who hit Miller should have gotten AT LEAST the same fine as our guy did, especially when he obviously...

Last year the Steelers spent a number of 4th quarters losing games. Last nights Pitt/Cincy game gave me flashbacks of those late game losses.

OK folks, the season is officially over and congrats to the "who Dat" nation and them Saints for winning. <BR> <BR> Now everyone is gearing up for April's Draft and the question is: Who should the Steelers take at #18? <BR> <BR> Steelers have much to fix; Cornerbacks, Linebackers, D-Line, O-Line are the top choices. I've read that there is a push for the O-Lineman from Iowa Bryan Bulaga. So who or what do you wanna see: <BR> <BR> My thought is simple, Cornerback that can tackle!!! Our DB'...

It would have been pretty cool to have Favre and Manning playing each other in the Superbowl. The wheels fell off of the Vikings bus on Sunday! In two weeks we'll all have the same record again. Can't wait for the draft. (Contrary to the name of this post, I don't believe it was all Favre's fault.) Mon, 25 Jan 2010 20:57:02 EST Tomorrow never comes. We are all here for one reason. That is to get healthy & best of all lose the weight. BUT I've been hearing this alot.. 'OH tomorrow I'm going to do this & do that' WELL does tomorrow ever come??NO!!

Steelers (the better than the best and worse than the worst) last game today. <BR> <BR> I want to watch the steelers win today. <BR> <BR> I'll then watch the Jets win. unfortunately. Hopefully the Jets will beat everyone in the playoffs, poetic justice. nothing like that ever happens tho' 2005. <BR> <BR> having said that, the steelers have had the easiest schedule in the league this year. If they had beaten the teams they were supposed to: BROWNS once, chiefs, raiders, bears and lost t... Sun, 3 Jan 2010 10:50:20 EST Hello All I am finally getting back to SP after a long time away (too long and too many pounds). I am a life-long Steeler fan and was thrilled to see this team. Although we have a fairly long-shot at the playoffs today, I am hopeful. I live in NJ and my family is from Johnstown, PA, hence the Steelers addiction. I look forward to chatting and losing (weight, not games) with the team. Sun, 3 Jan 2010 08:02:23 EST What happened to this Forum? Ok here's my prediction for 12/27. Steelers win!!! Yay! Jets win boo!!!!!! <BR> <BR> 1/3/10 Bengal throw their game against the Jets too. Neither the colts or the bungles want another 2005!!!!!! Mon, 28 Dec 2009 10:02:08 EST Game Day Thread: Game # 14 Steelers -Packers I'm hoping for a Steeler win today. But don't even dare to speculate on how they will do. I've been wrong all year!

Sun, 29 Nov 2009 09:30:58 EST Steelers vs. Ravens 11-29-09 So Big Ben has decided not to play tomorrow and while it's best for his health it kind of stinks. It's a big game and will be no easy picnic. However, this year is an attest that no game is an "easy" picnic. I will be at the game tomorrow (my first ever) and can't wait. What are your predcitions with the score and winner? Big ben's out as well as Polamalu again. Dennis Dixon will be starting his first ever game. Sat, 28 Nov 2009 19:44:58 EST WHO IS YOUR FAV PLAYER??? MINE HAS TO BE NUMBER 43 TROY..UGH I LOVE HIS LONG HAIR HES SOOO SEXY PLUS I THINK HE ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS ON THE TEAM..WHOS YOURS??? Tue, 24 Nov 2009 13:50:36 EST We will rally back!!!! I think our wonderful Steelers underestimated the Chiefs...Coach Tomlin included. It was a horrible loss to see us choke to the Bengals twice... it was to swallow. But as always I have faith in the Steelers and even with the way our offensive line has been letting us down. I do believe we will make it to the playoffs. So don't count the black and gold out yet!!! GO STEELERS!!!! Mon, 23 Nov 2009 07:16:06 EST Hi Everyone!!!!! Steelers Rock!!!

I don't think so...What do you think? Tue, 13 Jan 2009 23:18:57 EST Cleveland born, Steeler bred Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> I'm a Clevelander who has been a Steeler fanatic for as long as I can remember. For my first Halloween (I was 6 months old), my parents (from Beaver Falls, PA) dressed me up as Franco Harris. <BR> I've been a black and gold fan ever since!!! <BR> <BR> Sparkpeople has been great in helping me attain my fitness and 'healthy lifestyle' goals, and I'm always looking for new ways to keep it fresh. Group support has been integral to my success thus far, and it'll be fun c... Tue, 13 Jan 2009 19:54:10 EST AFC Championship Thread! Steelers-Ravens Round 3!! Here it is round 3.

Mon, 12 Jan 2009 12:05:27 EST Pound for Pound Challenge Just saw this on the back of my Cheerios box this morning and thought some of you might be interested, too. The Biggest Loser, General Mills, and Subway are teaming up to encourage weight loss. For every pound you lose between now and May 5 (end of this season's Biggest Loser) they will donate 10 cents (or enough to buy one pound of food) to a local food bank. There are also little "coins" that you can clip and mail in (due date is Dec 31 of '09) to add another 10 cents. <BR> <BR> Anyway,... Mon, 12 Jan 2009 08:37:40 EST Can game time come ANY SOONER!!???

Hello Team, <BR> <BR> I am such a Steelers Fan and that can be a problem for me. During that Super Bowl run a few years ago I was so stressed for those last 4 weeks that I gained 7 pounds. I ate everything in sight while I nervously watched all the news and sports channels. During Super Bowl week I watched all day at work and at home. I watched all the press conferences that led up to the Super Bowl it was non stop. I don't know what I would do if we make it to another Super Bowl <em>230</e...

The playoff thread! Mon, 5 Jan 2009 21:10:12 EST new steeler lover here! Hi! I'm Luckie, a 24-year-old Steeler fanatic from Atlanta. I particularly love Troy Polamalu, though all the Steeler boys get lots of love. I was raised as a #2 Steelers fan (my father loves them best with the sole exception of the Redskins). The end of this season is bittersweet, as I never want football season to end, but this year it will be a relief to not have to withstand the temptation of beer pitchers at the sports bar on Sunday! I'm hoping to lose about 25 more pounds and I really m... Sun, 4 Jan 2009 19:38:51 EST Hi - I'm from the Cleveland OH area My name is Gail, I'm a Steelers fan from Cleveland. It's been a lot of fun these last few years. My husband likes the Browns, and my youngest son likes the (yuck!) Patriots. Makes for some interesting discussions on Sundays. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I've been a yo-yo dieter for many years, and am looking to make some permanent changes to my life. Keeping weight off and being healthier. I have about 100 lbs to lose, so I have a long way to go. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to participating here, with f... Fri, 2 Jan 2009 09:22:43 EST Team News!!!

Sat, 27 Dec 2008 11:20:39 EST What tools do you use besides the scale? I recently realized that my wedding ring is another indicator of how my weight is doing - especially water-weight gain. If the ring is immovable, I'm "puffy". If it slides up and down pretty easily, I'm improving. (Can't wait until I have to get it resized!) <BR> <BR> I've used this short-hand method to judge how I'm doing when away from a scale, and was wondering what some of the rest of you use as a guage. Sat, 27 Dec 2008 10:58:21 EST What fitness-related gift did YOU get this year? My hubby and I gave ourselves a Wii this year, with the WiiFit for me (he agreed to it b/c he wanted Guitar Hero!) and I was wondering if you received any fitness-related gifts? Dumb bells? Yoga mat? Workout clothes? A snow shovel? (that's my idea of a joke - see my blogs from last week!) <BR> <BR> One friend got a great fitness gift - her husband agreed to join her in the weight-loss and healthy living journey. <BR> <BR> So what did Santa bring you? Fri, 26 Dec 2008 10:44:41 EST Game 16 Steelers-Borwns Ok this is it! Last game of the regular season. Should we rest players of go out and crush the Browns? <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> I'd like to see some players get rested but I also want to see the Browns destroyed.

I thought it was the neatest "gift" I've received in a long time.

You can buy very inexpensive gifts, or the sky's the limit. Do whatever is right for you. <BR> I've done this several times, and ...

Hey everyone. <BR> <BR> I thought I would create this topic so we could talk about something that really worries me...the Steeler's running game..or lack there of. I am going to say right here and now I do not think Willie Parker is the same back he once was. The after effects of the injuries he has suffered, dating back to last year against the Rams when he broke his leg, are beginning to take its tole. For the most part the Steelers ran the ball OK with Moore. I do love his ability to brea... Mon, 8 Dec 2008 09:17:51 EST Steelers -Cowboys Game Day Thread A place to discuss the days action!

You could post to a message board thread or you could simply huddle at the huddle wall. The second one is to log 500 fitness minutes per month. I hope you like them...

They will be a little more rested than us because they played on Thanksgiving. I think we match up pretty well against them. I consider the Giants to be a much better team than the boys and we almost beat them, so hopefully we shouldn't have too much trouble against Dallas. I am not sure of the status of 94 Ware though. He will be a challenge for our offensive line. <BR> <BR> GO STEELERS!!!! I want a ROMO sandwich! <BR> <BR> Dawn Mon, 1 Dec 2008 18:26:49 EST Game 12 Steelers- Pats We need to keep winning!

The Steelers Should win this game with ease. That's what scares me. What do you all think? Wed, 19 Nov 2008 07:03:06 EST What the Steelers are missing? Hey everyone, just wondering what you all thought the Steelers are missing or what they need to do differently in order to become a more solid team? Or do you think things are fine the way they are? Would like to hear your thoughts. Here is my take on the team: <BR> <BR> The Steelers still need that big bruising back to compliment Parker. Someone they can rely on to pound it up the middle and get those little 2-3 yard 3rd down pick ups, which are especially so crucial at the end of the game ... Tue, 18 Nov 2008 06:16:04 EST Steelers Chargers OMG! I was at our restaurant in Al. and they tried to put the Titans on the Big Center TV Yet again with an entire room of PAYING Steelers Fans.
