Did you guys see the "Playoff energy" in the teams today???

I hope we're working ours up right now because we can't afford a "Warm up Quarter"

I just want Ben not to play like Tony Romo and Brett Favre in the playoffs. I want him to play like he did in the last B-more game. Dont make stupid mistakes...

I think if we have a great first couple of plays, we will have momentum... A 3-and-out could pretty much decide our fate..

I would take that kind of play from Ben in a heart beat, last Ravens game. One of the few games in his career where he was cautoius... knowing he was playing a great D and did not want to turn it over.
Nothing wrong with being a gunslinger at times but you have to pick your spots...

I watched the Atlanta game and thought, "aww, man. If we lose our playoff game, this is the blueprint."

Then I was like, "what the hell, we have a better defense than that, and I'm going to drink a lot of beer now."

I hope Mr. Tomlin steals the O-line's teddy bears and binkies the night before the game and gets them fired up, because the season may come down to nothing more than how well our O-line plays....

Nervous? No, not at all. We are gauranteed a team we beat already (Chargers) or a team we didn't play but I believe we can easily beat (Dolphins).

But somewhere in there you lost count and went with the generic "a lot" instead of a specific number, I'll bet!:drink:

Really, what does it matter who we play? The best teams should advance. You only make it to the championship by beating the best.

I don't care if we are the better team or not.

I just want to win. :banging:

Turnovers were key in the Falcons/Cardinals game and penalties were a major contributor to the outcome in the Colts vs Chargers game.

We cant afford either................

LT will probably not play or not play much. Hopefully we'll crush the little guy. He's fast, though. :chuckle:

The only team that can beat the Steelers (Besides Tennesee) is the Steelers. Unfortunately, we've done that plenty this season. Ben in particular.

I'm more concerned about the Steelers themselves than who they face.

Though confident, I'm nervous playing anyone at this point. Despite our record, we have had A LOT of close games that we were able to squeak out at the end. Our record could have easily been quite different. Just saying.

Its pretty simple....We only have to concentrate on not turning the ball over and have a typical performance on Defense.

I believe Ben will show up in the playoffs. We talk about our D being snubbed on indiviual awards and making up for it in the postseason, but Ben has been criticized all year (rightly so) and is the one that truly has something to prove in the Postseason.

I'm always nervous for the big games. I didn't eat for 24 hours before XL. I made all this food for the game and couldn't eat a thing. :chuckle:

I have also noticed he has a ring, the youngest to 50 wins, can lead 4th qtr drives for a win....any other questions?

Yeah I think we know our QB's stats, do you know yours when he actually faced a dominating defense like the Steelers and not soft defenses like the Colts, Chiefs, Raiders and Broncos? In case you forgot, I'll remind you....PR's passer rating against the Steelers was 44.4 (worst all year), he threw for 15/26 and 164 yards (with one penalty on offense for false start) and threw 2 INT's. Our #1 ranked D that "we should hope is better" also held your run game to a measly 66 yards (with LT getting 57 of those). This was also a game where we were playing a back up CB, a CB we had just pulled off the street and a backup FS against the Chargers WR corps....our starters on D are all healthy now.

I commend them for doing well against the Colts, but honestly, I did not think much of the Colts before the game. In their 9 game winning streak I didn't see them playing anybody noteworthy (except the Steelers in week 10, and they were lucky to win that game by a whopping 4 points). They struggled in the final weeks to get wins against such amazing teams as the Browns, Lions and Jags. So I wasn't particularly surprised to see the Chargers (who had just come off of beating equally hapless teams) win against them. Also keep in mind that the only reason the Chargers won is because the Colts defense decided to have a major meltdown in OT that allowed the Chargers to get key 1st downs, without those penalties the Colts get the ball back and the Chargers fans are probably singing a different tune right now.

Take all that into account, and no, I'm not really worried about the Chargers at all. I respect them as a team and I know the Steelers players and coaches will take this game very seriously because it's the playoffs, but as a fan, they have given me no reason to think they are a team to be worried about.
