    Most fans are mostly douchenozzles including Black N Gold ones. Seen it a 1000 times at least.

    Maybe. I've been to more away games than I have been to steelers home games. KC is a terrible place to be a visitor. They are insufferable SOBs. Almost as bad as Cleveland.

    In fairness lots of things are almost as bad as Cleveland. That could be a fun list.

    I tried to take a photo of the TV, but during post-game interview with Mahomes the stands behind him was all Steeler fans.

    I know a few Pat fans who had dogs named Brady. I love dogs but always wanted to kick them in the ass.

    Thanks for the memories Ben Roethlisberger, I'm thankful from the bottom of my heart. You gave us something to cheer for over an 18 year career and left us plenty of memories right up to the last game. See you in Canton big guy. THANK YOU

    The Ben retirement tour was nice in some ways especially the Monday night send off but it definitely affected the organizational progress. Wasted a year of guys like TJ Cam and Minkahs career. This should have been the rebuild year with Mason instead that will be next year and a throw away.

    MR would have had this team finishing 5-12 or 6-11 at best. Couldn't even beat a lousy Lions team.

    That’s fine would have been able to build other parts of the team without Bens contract and gotten a much better draft pick this year. And we would know if Mason is a complete bust I mean it appears that way but he needs more than a game here or there to be sure. All this did was delay the rebuild we don’t want to admit we are in. That game last night couldn’t show us any clearer how far away they are from a championship team.

    Thanks Ben for all the work over the past 18 seasons, it's been an amazing ride for us fans. Wishing Ben and his family the best in all his future ventures outside of football. Hope to see you in Canton soon.

    I was finishing my Senior year of high school when Ben was drafted in 2004. Ben is 39 soon to be 40. I'm 36 will be 37 this summer. It was sure a blast watching him all these years.
    My only regret was I wish my die hard Steelers fan mother had been here to watch him play for this franchise. She passed away from stomach cancer my senior year of high school in the fall.
    It was also hard because my older brother died in an accident Ben's rookie year he died right before the game in Dallas Ben's rookie year. His viewing was the Sunday during that game. One of the few Steelers games I have missed watching the last 30 years or so.

    Through all that heart ache I still had #7 and he made us a winner.

    I feel like she (my mom) used some sort of higher to get Ben drafted to us.

    But the coolest thing for Ben and I, we kind of became adults together at the same time. Gonna miss him, but forever grateful.

    My hope is my kids get to witness the next great Steelers QB and have some great memories of their own.
