The Bye Week Pro Bowl: Best Comments from the 2015 Season
The Bye Week is a time of great restlessness in Steeler Nation. Especially in a year with a late bye, we’re either wanting to get the season over with so we can start talking about the draft (very uncommon,) we are frantically calculating play-off scenarios (standard,) or are already collecting recipes for our Super Bowl parties to cheer the Steelers to victory. (That would be steeler fever)
Unlike Patriots fans, complacency doesn’t seem to be warranted until after the AFC Championship Game is won for Steeler fans. If then.
We need some fun things to get us through this interminable week, and our writers need a break too. So I’ve decided to let you all do the heavy lifting. I have chosen some of my favorite comments from this season. At the end of the article you have the opportunity to vote for your favorites, and we will declare the champion afterwards. If you can choose. I like them all. The numbering is strictly reverse chronological.
And, lest you are wondering, like the Pro Bowl, the prize is pretty much just bragging rights. But if you like I’ll throw in a free one-year subscription to this site : )
Today’s category, since this is supposed to be fun, is just that:

I like this quote basically because I am of average intelligence:
Smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at defending beliefs they arrived at for non-smart reasons.

I don’t understand tattoos or body piercing (including pierced ears). Your poor body takes so much abuse over your lifetime, why expose it to more? Maybe it is having poked a hole in my foot with a mini-jack hammer when I was 19 that makes me think this way. IDK.

Entertaining article and I hope to see more of them.
Now please excuse me while I shove my terrible towel back into my mouth so no one can hear the incredible amount of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth that’s been occurring.
And to finish, I’ll just leave this here:
№ 14. steeler fever:
You know it was Shakespeare who said “All is well that ends with the Steelers winning a Super Bowl”. You can quote me on that.
