They're starting to chatter about our team a little bit.

Worst Case Scenario is playing the Steelers in a game that matters.

The Steeler's defense is scary but so is their offense right now, just for totally different reasons.

[quote]The Panthers are scary. Nobody is talking about them....at ALL. The fact that they're playing so well and being under the radar like that alone makes them scary. The pundits are all raving about Matt Ryan, Mike Smith, and the Feel Good Falcons, but barely uttering a word about the 11-3 Panthers.

Other than that, nobody in the NFC scares me. Not even the Giants. It took an injury to a long snapper and an untimely holding penalty for the Steelers to lose to them.[/quote]

At least we aren't the only ones who notice...that's a smart man right there.

The steelers fans should have a jump on knowing about the panthers, as there are a couple million of them that have to watch Panthers games every weekend here in NC.

if you mean the defense is scary as in suffocating and impenetrable while their offense is scary because it's scary that an NFL team can have an offense that horrible and still be legit superbowl contenders because their defense is so good, then you are right.

If the Panthers beat the Giants on the road, then they'll really be scary. The Steelers play the Titans, another big game.

Honestly, I'm impressed with how much they know about our team. Their assessments are pretty accurate.

Yes, that is exactly what I meant.

Although I probably wouldn't place the entire offense in the horrible column. More that a NFL team can have a running game that horrible and still be legit superbowl contenders. Considering how bad the running game is, its amazing that the passing game, as bad as it is, isn't worse.

I live an hour outside of Pittsburgh. Steeler fans are very annoying but they are very educated fans and for the most part unbiased. They really tell it how it is and don't sugar coat it, especially when it concerns the Steelers.

I just moved up here and at the begining of the season all of my co-workers were going, "Who are the Panthers? Don't they play hockey in Florida?" The past couple of weeks it been, "Damn, your team is looking incredible." And yes, they can go indepth about why they look good or why a team looks horrible.

After talking to a Cowboys or Falcons fan, you really apprechiate a Steeler's fan.

Steelers defense is playing lights out. However, they should be extremely concerned about their anemic offense.

Their un game is less than mediocre....the OL is having trouble pass protecting...Rothlesberger is not the kind of QB that will successfully put it up 35 times a game. They are winning ugly now...and there is alot to be said about that.

However, they will need to score more consistently in the playoffs...of they will be short lived.

Honestly, I think the Colts are playing the best football in the AFC now. They are healthy and the offense is clicking.

We have owners with a similar mindset and our coaching philosophy is similar to the way the Steelers play

We atch the games at a Steelers bar. They are very informed and have benn rooting with us all year. I agree that playing them in a game that counts would be tough. Granted, their offense isn't firing on all cylinders but defense does win Super Bowls....

Defense wins championships but offense wins games. Even the greatest scoring defenses needed their offense to score some points to eventually win championships.

The Chargers and Cowboys BOTH bocthed the game as opposed to the Steelers winning.
Romo and Rivers eached made some bone head passes.

I can only see the Jets and Colts and Titans beating the Steelers.
Jets and Colts have the offense to win and Titans the D to win.

Gottt dAAAMMNNNN!!!! Talk about support, I thought I was starting to support Carolina but thats scary, I've never seen that from another team before. Guess I'm not alone supporting Carolina now, but I couldn't help my self, that Williams and Stewart combination is nothing short of fatal. John Fox is a genious for that one.

The Panthers came within one game of playing the Steelers in the Big Bowl '05.....the Panthers/Steelers would be a great Super Bowl in February :cool:

Ah shit, that would be a monumental superbowl. The immovable Defense verses the impossible to beat Offensive line-running game combination. That game would be nothing short of a war
