Rashard Mendenhall calls out fans for not being supportive

Following their loss to the Titans on Thursday night, the Steelers are off to a disappointing 2-3 start to the 2012 season. With tough games remaining against the Ravens (twice), Bengals (twice), Giants, Chargers and Cowboys, Pittsburgh can ill afford to lose to lowly opponents like Tennessee. The fans understand that, which is why Thursday’s loss was particularly frustrating.

As much of a letdown as it may have been, Rashard Mendenhall sees that as no reason for the fans to get down on the Steelers.

Steelers fans are as hardcore as they come. Their expectations are high, as they should be. If the team was 4-1 and fans were getting on the players about the one loss, I would understand why Mendenhall is frustrated. But a 2-3 record isn’t going to cut it. At the moment, Steelers fans are worried that their team — which came into the season as an AFC favorite — may be in danger of missing the playoffs. If the players are tired of hearing it from the fans, they simply need to start playing better.

    People are what they are, pointless for athletes to waste time on Twitter commenting on such things.  sports fans are no different than anyone else in that they tend to exalt too much in the highs and are too susceptible to anger and depression when confronted with the lows.
