Not thread-worthy but noteworthy I guess. Ryan Leaf has officially hit rock bottom.

Yeah me too. Personally I could give a rats behind if the 9ers get six rings. If they get it then so be it. I don't got a problem with it.

You've never encountered a Steelers fan that hangs their hat on the Steelers' 6 rings, 4 of which were won before their lifetime? Have you ever been to Pittsburgh in the past 5 years?

I have friends and know a ton of people that the Steelers could get blown out by a high school team and they'd say Well that highschool doesnt have 6 rings. That is not really an exageration either. 6 rings is a comeback for every game, every opinion..everything.

What worse than that is Browns fans saying "We have more championships". You know, from the 1940's.

Though I agree, saying "6 rings" is just as bad.

I like that the Steelers have the most titles, but if I have to choose between the Niners winning or the Pats or Ravens winning, I'd like to welcome San Francisco to the 6 Rings Club.

I couldn't agree more with this post. People care very deeply about the Steelers and being the only team to have six rings. Me? I could care less about that. If a team like the 9ers can beat the Pats or Ravens to stop them from getting another ring, I will support that to the end.

But it means nothing to me that the Steelers are the only team with 6 rings.

As always, the truth is somewhere in the middle. Does it matter that the Steelers have the most superbowl wins? To me it does, however I don't go around saying "SIXBURGH111!1111!!!!!" because it would be like a Montreal fan saying "Crosby who? We have 23 cups" or a Yankee Fan saying ****...

idk, I've already said I'm rooting for Frank Gore and Colin Kapernick

I used to feel kinda bad for them, until I went to Cleveland to see the Steelers play the Browns this year and me feeling sorry for them went away very quickly.

Anyone else kind of impressed by the Browns moves so far this offseason? Norv Turner sucks as a head coach but he has always been a very good offensive coordinator and Ray Horton received rave reviews as Arizona's defensive coordinator this season. The fact that the Browns went out and made hirings that just aren't completely stupid is odd.

Really? The steelers have won more superbowls than any other team in the NFL. I'm pretty sure that means something.

I don't see why it means much at all. its not like they have 6 and the next closest team has 1. I think its pretty trivial in the grand scheme of things.

So you're saying that if the 49ers won the next 2 super bowls you wouldn't be proud that "your team" had won the most super bowls?

I mean some fans go overboard with it, but it's not really that hard to see why people would care...
