45,873 was the attendance for the Steelers game - http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/boxscore?gameId=331215023
Beyond pathetic for a "football town", on prime time, against a rival, with a team that still has playoff hopes. Heck, the Rams had 55,966 fans against the Seahawks earlier this year with a World Series game being played a mile down the street on MNF.
As a Rams fan, I have seen our share of talk about how we somehow dont support the Rams in St Louis (even though this will be our 10th year in a row without a winning record), yet we had 58,000 in St Louis against the Saints this past weekend even though the Rams are out of the playoff picture. I know in the grand scheme of things, it isnt right for a Rams fan to talk about other team's attendance because I will acknowledge there is an attendance issue with the Rams (#31 of 32 teams) but look who is #30 (Pittsburgh)....so much for a "football town"
