Steelers RB is a truther


Like I needed another reason to renounce the Pittsburgh Steelers as my favorite football team. If Rapey Ben wasn’t enough now it turns out that Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall needs to be fitted for a tin foil helmet.

In the wake of the death of Osama Bin Laden Mendenhall posted the following on his Twitter account…

We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style. 

I’m not convinced he was even behind the attacks we have really seen no evidence to prove it other than the gov telling us. 

What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side.

 I’m not even going to dignify these tweets with a response. However between Rothliesberger, the fact that Steelers fans are becoming insufferable, and now this I may start rooting for the Panthers.

The Steelers are quickly becoming the new Cowboys.

Trench’s Bad JuJu Pick for Super Bowl XLV


It seems that my sports curse is back. After a few years of picking the Super Bowl correctly it seems that my lick has run out.

As you know I am a Steelers fan but I’ve wanted them to fail in the worst way this season. Actually I wanted Ben Rothliesberger, or however the hell you spell that, to fail miserably. So far he hasn’t.

I don’t want the Steelers to win another Super Bowl with Rapey McNohelmet at QB. So my apologies to Green Bay Packer fans as I want them to win the Super Bowl. I apologize because when the bad juju is in effect that means my picks go horribly wrong.

The only way I want to see the Steelers win the Super Bowl this year is if Rothlieswhatever gets Joe Theisman’d on the first play.

Roethlisberger’s road to redemption?



As for the off-field problems that nearly derailed his career before the season, Williams adds, “Winning cures a lot of things. A lot of sins are forgiven.”

Not in my eyes. The only redemption that Doucheliesberger can give is if he left the Steelers.

This isn’t the Cowboys or the Bengals we’re talking about. It’s the Pittsburgh freakin’ Steelers. A team that I thought held its players to a higher standard but I guess I was wrong. As a long time Steelers fan I am embarrassed that this douchetastic assclown is the QB. He could win 10 Super Bowls and I wouldn’t care. He is a black eye on the history of the Steelers that should be expunged.

I hope the Jets continue their winning streak against the AFC powerhouses tomorrow and send the Steelers packing.

I renounce the Steelers…for now


So I have this problem. I’ve been a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers since I was 10-years-old. Granted back then the Steelers were the team in the NFL. Little kids, being what they are, want to root for winners so there was a lot of us that were Steeler fans. Little kids are the worst front-runners. Not to mention that growing up in South Jersey we didn’t really have our own team. There were mostly Eagles fans mixed in with some Giants fans.

There was one year that the Steelers played the Eagles in a preseason game. The Steelers won the game and my dad knew a guy who worked security at Vets Stadium and was able to get me into the Steelers locker room. I got to meet a lot of Steeler legends that day. I got to meet and get autographs from Terry Bradshaw, Franco Harris, and my favorite player of all time Rocky Bleier. My Steeler jersey carries the number 20 worn by Bleier. I cherish this memory because it was one of the few good memories I share with my father but I digress.

As I got older I did not abandon the Steelers as teams like the Cowboys *spit* and 49ers began building their own dynasties. I was no fair weather fan. I suffered through the Bubby Brister years. I was heartbroken when Neil O’Donnell threw away our chance of winning a Super Bowl against the hated Cowboys. I witnessed the deterioration of Kordell Stewart after he transitioned from Slash to the starting QB.

Then came Ben Roethlisberger. Supposedly the best QB the Steelers had since the much vaunted Terry Bradshaw. You can’t argue with results. He took the Steelers back to the promised land of the Super Bowl twice and was victorious both times. Not that there weren’t problems along the way.

Roethlisberger is obviously not the brightest crayon in the box when he’s away from football. He missed some games after crashing his motorcycle while not wearing a helmet. Now in the past year, he’s been accused in a pair of sexual assaults. He wasn’t charged by police but the NFL thought there was enough evidence to suspend him for a handful of games.

I’ve never been a big Roethlisberger fan. Pittsburgh has a history of its QBs melting down. When they gave him the multi-year multi-million dollar contract I knew it was a mistake. Now with his suspension now served he’s back under center for the Steelers.

Call me a pussy if you want but I don’t want an ‘alleged’ sexual predator being the QB for my team. I can’t in good conscience root for the Steelers while he is such an integral part of the team. If they were to win the Super Bowl this year I would not acknowledge it.

Now the problem is who do I root for in the meantime. That’s where fantasy football comes in. Each year I always end up with an inordinate amount of players from a specific team. This year that team is the San Diego Chargers. Not the best team to root for but at least I have somewhat of a vested interest in their success. Philip Rivers is the QB on two of my teams and I also have various running backs and wide receivers scattered throughout all three of my teams.

So for the 2010 season, I will be a Chargers fan unless the Steelers get rid of Roethlisberger before then.

Trench’s Bad JuJu Super Bowl Pick

Every football season I hardly ever watch a single game because for the past few years in every game I watch the team I pull for loses. In last year’s Super Bowl I was pulling for the Eagles. In this year’s NFC Championship I was pulling for the Panthers. Now my favorite team of all time is in the Super Bowl and I’m afraid that has sealed their doom. So my apologies go out this year to my fellow fans of the…
