The Steelers and the Giants played an intense, well-fought football game this afternoon, where the Steelers came out with a victory, 24-20. The game had many ups and downs, and was a well-played game by both sides; the kind of football any fan should enjoy watching.
However, at some point, I would assume as the game was wrapping up, Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace said that Giants fans were throwing things at him:
Lol the Giants fans were really throwing stuff at me!! #Crazy

As a Giant fan, this absolutely disturbs me. I hate when a couple of idiots ruin the reputation of a great fan base, like the Giants have. Under no circumstance is it ever acceptable to do things like this. Paying for your tickets, no matter the price, does not mean you get to lack human decency. I am sure some people will use alcohol as a crutch, and blame it on the booze T-Pain style.
If you can’t handle your liquor, and your teams loss like a man/woman, just stay home. The Giants got beat, fair and square, in a hard-fought game by both sides. Simply put, the Steelers were the better team, and instead of being bitter, these knuckleheads should appreciate the effort both teams showed on the field. This doesn’t even consider the great act by the Steelers to travel to the game day-of in order for citizens of the New York/New Jersey area to be able to stay in hotels, as many of them are still without power and homes due to Hurricane Sandy.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first, or last time something like this will occur, as fans seem to think their purchase of a ticket gives them free reign to do whatever they please.

While I was not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown backpedaling 20-yards into the end zone on the punt return last week against the Washington Redskins, I think him being fined $10,000 is way too harsh.
To put that in perspective, the Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL this past week for previously not listing free safety Ed Reed on the injury...
The Steelers and many of their fans have known what they had in Heath Miller for a long time. One of the reasons so many fans were fed up with former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was his limited use of Miller in the passing game especially in the red zone. The most touchdowns Miller ever scored when Arians was the offensive coordinator was 7 in 2007. Over the past two years...
I knew this would be the week the Pittsburgh Steelers would take down Eli Manning and the world Champion New York Giants, the Steelers are just playing too good of football to not win the game. Ben Roethlisberger’s confidence has never looked higher than what I have seen over the past few games the Steelers have played. Roethlisberger may not have liked the new offensive scheme...

Isaac Redman ran for 147 yards, and scored the winning touchdown from a yard out with 4:02 remaining Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers rallied past the New York Giants, 24-20.
The Steelers (5-3) snapped New York's four-game winning streak by overcoming some uncharacteristic sloppiness and dominating the second half.

There's no replacement refs to blame for the poor officiating in the Steelers-Giants game.
Ryan Clark was flagged for unnecessary roughness on a big hit that seemed clean according to NFL rules. Eli Manning threw an ill-advised pass directly at a Steelers' defender, which was followed up by Clark lighting up Giants receiver Victor Cruz. Clark didn't...
Both Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer are inactive for Week 9 vs. the Giants.
Isaac Redman will start at running back in their absence and is a solid FLEX play vs. a New York defense that struggles to stop the run.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In a game billed as the battle of two first-round quarterbacks from the Class of 2004, the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger outlasted the Giants' Eli Manning by copying Manning's fourth-quarter comeback act to steer Pittsburgh to a 24-20 win over New York at MetLife Stadium. The Giants (6-3) saw their four-game winning streak end, and Manning'...
