However, Doug Brien decided to pull a Bill Buckner - twice. The Pats beat a far better team in a far more convincing manner. Like I said, Big Ben better do more than his typical 175 yds, 1td, and 2 ints. Brady vs. Ben is a horrible mismatch for the Steelers. The Patriots are out for revenge and you know Vinatieri won't choke.
Um, that was hardly a typical Roethlisburger performance, bro. You might want to check your info a little better. Also, the Colts suck very hard outdoors and particularly in bad weather. That is the ONLY resson the Patriots were able to win.
Yes, the Steelers did get lucky. So did the Jets. The Steelers dominated them except for a lucky punt return for a TD and an interception return for a TD. Take away to big lucky plays and the Steelers spanked the Jets.
I'll tell you this. I am not worried at all about the Patriots. That's not to say that they can't or won't beat the Steelers....but I think the Steelers will have their destiny in their own control.
I love now people like you discredit Big Ben for a couple of lackluster games in his rookie year...not allowing for him to make some mistakes under the pressure of his first playoff game in his rookie season. He got his jitters out. He played better than Brady in probably 12 of his 15 starts. You clowns just can't stand to see him do well, for some dumb reason.
If Pittsburgh sticks to its' gameplan and pounds to ball, passing at opportune times and avoids special teams breakdowns THEY WILL WIN THIS GAME. Ben doesn't have to be perfect, but he does have to play better than last week. That is a given. That is easily within his capabilities, as much as you rabid Steeler haters love to deny his incredible season...the boy has the skills.
