1) We aren't the Colts
2) Steelers are #1 Defense. Only give up 13 points a game I think or fewer.
3) They match up well with the Colts. Good offenses and Average defenses.
4) The score should have been 18-6 last time we played them. Polamalu's play at the end which was called back and that horrendus PI call like in the first half on 3rd down which led to a SD TD.
5)Chargers won't score more than 20.
6) Rivers did squat the last time and they think he's gonna destroy Steeler D. If he lives..................

EDIT* Add more if you'd like but nothing stupid.

ROCK ON STEELER FAITHFUL!

Lets not forget that during their win streak they have beaten KC (and they struggled with them), Denver (who's defense couldnt stop my highschool team), Oakland (No more needs to be said about that) and Tampa Bay(who were in the middle of a monumental collapse). Not to mention they had the refs help them out considerably in that Colts game in the wild card round. Sure they have won 5 straight games, but lets not forget that in those 5 games, 4 of the teams were not very good at all. We will stomp them into the ground.

GO STEELERS!

stomp into the ground? you make it sound like its men against boys. Don't be fooled. The Bolt's are every bit as good as the Steelers. I only hope the players are half as koky as most of the posters on this forum. Let me get this straight. By virtue of your earlier 11-10 win you really think your going to waltz right through this thing?

The ridiculous loss to you guys? A field goal at the buzzer against the Colt's? Change them all and its 12-4. We have taken care of the Colt's and Denver. Your next. Maybe we can make it to the big one and get our sweet revenge against the Panthers. It could happen. BTW their are a few more of those games we lost by seconds.

Safety? difference maker. RIDICULOUS!

Did you even watch the game? Did you somehow not realize that 2 TD's were called back? 115 yards in penalties to 5 yards in penalties? The Chargers only TD coming off of a botched PI call that put them on the 3 yard line for the 1st and goal? I made this statement to another Charger fan on here and never got a response back, but if it had been the Chargers put into that situation this place would be flooded with nothing but angry fans screaming cheaters....and I'll ask you this question, had the Chargers racked up that many penalty yards against 5 yards given to us, do you think you would have still won the game?

Go look at the stats for that game, we passed and ran all over you and while I'll admit some of the penalties were just, there's no way you could ever convince me that 13-2 is a fairly called game, no way at all. That game was gift wrapped with a shiny little bow on top and the Chargers just couldn't get the present open.

Ok, that's funny, since the Chargers fans have made a serious thing about one botched call against Denver early in the season, and haven't shut up about it all year, then I guess it's wrong for us to be a little miffed about a game where the penalty gap is 13-2. Sure OK. Do you really think the Chargers played within the rules of the game and should have only been penalized 5 yards? Cause if you say yes, I have visual proof that you would be wrong.

We keep bringing it up because Charger fans somehow think that it was their "awesome" defense that kept the game close, which if fine to think, if you're fine with being delusional. Charger fans keep throwing that 11-10 score in there thinking that that means they played really well that day. They were nothing but lucky that score was kept so close.

Don't act like if the situations were reversed Charger fans wouldn't be screaming foul....and thank you for not answering my question.

cowboys and patriot fans easilly think their team is just as good as ours.

if they all were right the steelers would be sitting at 8-8 along with all the other "pretenders" and sb favorites such as the pats and cowboys wouldnt be sitting at home.

. do you really think teams like the 8-8 saints, 8-8 broncos, 8-8 cardinals, etc. are as good as the steelers?

me neither.

you are what you are, and right now we are the 2nd seed in the afc, and tied with the 2nd best record in the league.

sure the chargers are hot and on a streak. the colts were hotter and on a better streak. does that make them equal to you? the bengals have been on an even more impressive defensive streak. does that make them equal to you?

i didnt think so. you cant have it both ways. you guys just gotta admit that we are the better team, just like last year all teams were forced to admit the cheating patriots were better. one can try to rationalize it all they want, but it is what it is, and you are what you put down on paper. and that is where we stand.

Atleast it was by 4 points and not one, and then we shut them out 31-0 the next time we played them....the Browns also had a better record than the Chiefs (not by much, but better). All our division rivals play us tough, so I know what you mean, thing is though we swept our division and only one team really played us close, and that was the Ravens, who are in the playoffs as well at 11-5.

NFL network just showed the game again and I dvr'd it. I did see the pass interference call you spoke of and I agree. Totally ticky tack. Troy's interception was one of the best I have ever seen. Still think with a few different called plays and a few plays on defense we could have won that game. From the 'holy roller' to the fumble that wasn't we have had our share of refs dis-appointments. Its getting late for me so if I missed something..?

From the 'holy roller' to the fumble that wasn't we have had our share of refs dis-appointments. Its getting late for me so if I missed something..?

Well of course if a few different plays had gone differently it would have made a difference for the Chargers, my only argument was that it wasn't exactly the play calling that kept the score as low as it was for the Steelers (except for the 4th and goal) it was the flag happy refs that were only flagging the Steelers that kept the score that close IMO.

You made a decent point in your previous post and stated in short that nobody should sleep on the Chargers even though they are an 8-8 team, and I 100% agree with you, and I don't think the coaches and players are taking the game very lightly either....it's the playoffs now and previous records are out the window.

I just get tired of hearing the 11-10 argument is all, there have been a number of Chargers fans on here using that as an excuse, just like many Steelers fans,( myself included a couple times I think) have been using the 8-8 argument. I've watched the game a couple times myself and really, minus the goal line stand, I think the Steelers played one of their best games of the year, we ran the ball, passed effectively and defense came up big when it needed to. The major things that were stopping nearly all of the offensive drives (7 out of 9) were penalties. it was just getting frustrating to watch when blatant penalties were not being called on the Chargers as well.

I'm not really one to complain about the refs either, especially when we win, but that game just left a horrible taste in my mouth, the whole game just felt wrong as far as the refs were concerned.

Oh and no, my question was had the Chargers racked up that many penalty yards against 5 yards given to us, do you think they would have still won the game?

Sorry, let me reword that cause I don't think that came our right, if the Chargers were playing a game in which they received 115 yards in penalties to their opponent 5 yards, do you think they would have been able to still win the game.

ROCK ON STEELER FAITHFUL!

There's one more...

Why does everyone end up drinking the kool-aid over the wild card winners? Why does WC weekend get overhyped?

Really-the Ravens whipped an overachieving Fins team with a noodle-arm QB, big WHOOP! The Iggs barely beat a Vikings team with a clueless coach and the WORST QB in the NFL, big WHOOP! The Cards beat an overachieving Falcons team with a rookie QB/HC, WOW! And for that matter too, the Colts had NO run game, and a porous run D, double WOW!

And now they're already touting the Eagles and Chargers(and to some extent, the Ravens) as the teams to beat??!

Pt being that the teams with the bye get an extra week to rest and prepare, and not to mention too they EARNED their byes by being the MOST consistent teams in the league. For example, I read that the Giants finally got healthy(they were banged up the last month of the season, not to mention too they were bogged down by the Plax situation).

BTW-take it from me who's seen Norv Turner 2 X's a year when he was in Washington. He's a Jeckle/Hyde guy...he'll go through a stretch of doing a poor job and the media/fans start calling for his head, only for him to pull out the coaching performances of his life to save his own skin...and even if he comes up short at the end, he ends up giving the media/fans false hope going into the future. It's no different what he's doing in SD-starts a dismal 4-8, and then with his back against the wall his team is playing out of their minds. No matter what happens this weekend, Chargers fans et al will have alot of false hope for next year.

Sure, I'll admit the Chargers have a chance this weekend. But I'd put that chance somewhere around 25%. Vegas has us as 6 point favorites for a reason, but that doesn't mean we're a lock. I believe if we lined up against the Chargers 10 games, we'd win 7 or 8 times. Anything can happen, but I believe if we don't turn the ball over, we win. The only games we've lost this year are because our offense has turned it over.

Depends on the Book, they started at 6 and some have it at 6.5 up to 7. The lines start where book believes they are safe. They go up and down based on the bets coming in to try to keep the money even. Your right though, there is a reason why you have to bet $300 to win a $100 on the Steelers and $100 to win $250 on the Chargers. Vegas likes the Steelers :tt03:

Here's something that you're not understanding meetball. The Steelers aren't overlooking the Chargers, not one bit.

Here's how I see it. That's just tough luck for the Chargers. The only way that the Chargers would have a chance to win this game is IF the Steelers would overlook them. It's not happening.

The Chargers are the task at hand, the Chargers ARE the target that the Steelers are focusing on. The Steelers want a piece of the Chargers in the worst freaking way. Does that clear things up for you a bit? Does that make you feel as if the Steelers are respecting your precious Chargers? Respect?? I wouldn't call it respect. I would define it as a predator closing in on its prey.

It's game on Bro, your Charger boys aren't sneaking up on anyone this weekend.

Most of you guys keep bringing up the 8-8 thing as if it means anything. Reminder, when our season was on the line we did what we had to do. 8-8? ....Do you guys really know who your playing this Sunday? It aint the Brown's homie.

Hey the Chargers fans on this thread are pretty sane compared to some of the trollier versions I have seen, and you seem to be good natured. Seriously though, 8-8 does mean something. You really did back into the playoffs. the Patriots, as much as i dislike them, and I do like the Chargers, really should be in your spot.

I dont mean any offense, but I do think this game is going to be a blow out in the Steelers favor.

Even if you get by the Steelers, and it could happen, do you really think for one second you can beat the Ravens or the Titans? This aint the Raiders, homie.

I agree, I don't think that Chargers fans are looking for us to respect their team. I think that they're saying that the Steelers shouldn't look past the Chargers. I say again, the Steelers ARE NOT looking beyond the Chargers and that spells bad news for the Chargers. I truly believe that the Steelers can't wait to tear into that team. I actually find it hard to believe that I'm so FIRED UP for the Chargers, I'm definitely ready to KO someone. I can't wait until Sunday.

BTW-take it from me who's seen Norv Turner 2 X's a year when he was in Washington. He's a Jeckle/Hyde guy...he'll go through a stretch of doing a poor job and the media/fans start calling for his head, only for him to pull out the coaching performances of his life to save his own skin...and even if he comes up short at the end, he ends up giving the media/fans false hope going into the future. It's no different what he's doing in SD-starts a dismal 4-8, and then with his back against the wall his team is playing out of their minds. No matter what happens this weekend, Chargers fans et al will have alot of false hope for next year.

I honestly don't think I would want a coach who's career W- L record is 77-95. I think you guys were better off with Marty Schottenheimer's 5 years of 47-33.

Did you even watch the game? Did you somehow not realize that 2 TD's were called back? 115 yards in penalties to 5 yards in penalties? The Chargers only TD coming off of a botched PI call that put them on the 3 yard line for the 1st and goal? I made this statement to another Charger fan on here and never got a response back, but if it had been the Chargers put into that situation this place would be flooded with nothing but angry fans screaming cheaters....and I'll ask you this question, had the Chargers racked up that many penalty yards against 5 yards given to us, do you think you would have still won the game?

Go look at the stats for that game, we passed and ran all over you and while I'll admit some of the penalties were just, there's no way you could ever convince me that 13-2 is a fairly called game, no way at all. That game was gift wrapped with a shiny little bow on top and the Chargers just couldn't get the present open.

Here's some advice......don't have any penalties, it's a very simple concept:laughing:

Sorry, short break, laptop battery thing...]Let me get this straight. You won and are still complaining about the refs? We only do that when we lose.:laughing: Yes, I did see the game. If I had a gun I would've shot my friggin tv. Quit with refs keeping the game close for you guys. If you played by the rules you wouldn't get flagged. The Colt's pulled this same stuff after last weeks game. Some how they just shouldn't get the flags thrown in their direction because well.. they are the Colt's! What a bunch of bs. And, I could fill a shoebox full of nickels if I had one for every NFL game that was close in spite of one team dominating in yardage stats. That's your whole argument with that game?11-10 is nothing to brag about.

Fact is the Chargers do have a chance to win this weekend. But they're lucky to even be in the playoffs. With their record, they wouldn't have won any other division in football. They would have finished 2nd in the NFC West, 3rd in most divisions, and 4th in the AFC and NFC East's.

They got to 8 wins by beating mediocre or poor teams.
But all that being said, it's a single elimination tournament. Mistakes can't be made or they can win this weekend. Their best win all year was last week.

Enough with the regular season record already.

Steelers wins vs teams who finished with winning records: 4 (incl. 2 wins vs. Ravens)
Chargers wins vs. Teams who finished with winning records: 3 (4 if you want to throw in the playoff win)

Yes, I realize you were talking regular season and getting "into" the playoffs. But you know what? Tough shit. They're in.

If the Steelers win it will be because they're simply a better team regardless of record. If the Chargers win it will be because they're a better team regardless of record.

Stop trying to convince yourself that this is an inferior opponent. The Chargers did not fold down the stretch... the Broncos did. The Chargers could have packed it in, but instead they sucked it up and decided to finish the season strong and hope for the best.

Deal with it.

Well, since someone has already admitted to the Pass Interference call being weak, which it was, and basically gave them field position for their only TD, how about this.

The illegal formation penalty against Willie Colon because he was, in the officials opinion, not lined up with his helmet at the centers waist. Weak. Even Simms said "see it all the time with no call". I haven't seen it called in years. A wide receiver, ya, but not the tackle. :noidea: This was after a very big play.

Some penalties are deserved, and some are reaches in interpretation of the rules.

We DOUBLED their yardage,

almost TRIPLED their first downs,
and had possession of the ball for 13 MORE minutes (thats almost a whole quarter, Charger fans)

Oh and you had 2 turnovers, to our zero.

Somehow it doesn't seem to sink in for them that DESPITE 115 yards in penalties (to their 5) we still won the game.

For the life of me, I'll never understand how you can think that was a fairly called game, and that somehow the Chargers just didn't commit more than one false start penalty (and an illegal forward pass penalty that took away a Steelers TD and was said to be an incorrect call).

Guess what, this game Sunday isn't going to have the same flag happy refs in it, so don't expect to see as many penalties or as many calls go in the Chargers favor, they had their shot at running away with the game because of it, chances are it won't happen again like that.

Here's something that you're not understanding meetball. The Steelers aren't overlooking the Chargers, not one bit.

Here's how I see it. That's just tough luck for the Chargers. The only way that the Chargers would have a chance to win this game is IF the Steelers would overlook them. It's not happening.

The Chargers are the task at hand, the Chargers ARE the target that the Steelers are focusing on. The Steelers want a piece of the Chargers in the worst freaking way. Does that clear things up for you a bit? Does that make you feel as if the Steelers are respecting your precious Chargers? Respect?? I wouldn't call it respect. I would define it as a predator closing in on its prey.

It's game on Bro, your Charger boys aren't sneaking up on anyone this weekend.

Steelers 31

Chargers 10precious???Some of you guys are so full of yourselves. By 31-10 you mean they have no chance. We have already been over the the fact that a tip of the ball here and there and we could have been 21-4. These 'boys' were in the AFC championship game last year. Its the same team that found the sea legs they were missing the first part of the season. 24-10 Bolt's.

Hey the Chargers fans on this thread are pretty sane compared to some of the trollier versions I have seen, and you seem to be good natured. Seriously though, 8-8 does mean something. You really did back into the playoffs. the Patriots, as much as i dislike them, and I do like the Chargers, really should be in your spot.

I dont mean any offense, but I do think this game is going to be a blow out in the Steelers favor.

Even if you get by the Steelers, and it could happen, do you really think for one second you can beat the Ravens or the Titans? This aint the Raiders, homie. Uh yeah. We beat the Titans last year. Twice. The 2nd time was a convincing win in the playtoffs. I think we played the Ravens either last year or the year before. The beat us at the buzzer. So yes we can beat them too.

You know what's funny with all the Chargers fans saying "get over our 8-8 record, stop worrying about the past live in the present, we're here?" I'm, walking by Cletis Gordon's apartment late last night, and I'm not sure who he lives with, his brother or a girlfriend, but anyway, someone gets in car and leaves, the other person is sitting at home and watching the Chargers/Colts game on TV.

What's your point you ask? Well assume Cletis is sitting at home watching the Colts. Bad move, you aren't playing the Colts in 2 days. OK, so it wasn't him. So then he's the one leaving late at night?? Where exactly does one go late at night? Given the Chargers history, sounds like he's going partying. I suppose he could be going somewhere else but when you are going to be returning kicks in a divisional playoff game shouldn't you be doing something better than watching last weeks game or going out late at night??

By the way, along with Sproles and Gordon, Applewhite lives here as well. Sproles is small, it's amazing he can do what he does.

its hilarious when steeler fans post our regular season record, as if it has any bearing on this game in the playoffs.

the chargers have won a playoff game against a pretty good team and are 4-1 under norv in the playoffs.


First, you are who you are which is an 8-8 team in a weak division.

Second, I believe you are 3-1 in the playoffs under Norv. (2007 WC, 2007 Div, lost AFC title game and one WC win this year).

ESPN. The network that thinks their is no football team west of the rivers.

Take a serious look at the two western divisions and tell me how much attention they really deserve. Both division champs are 8-8 and are only in the playoffs because the current rules call for at least one team from every division be represented. When the NFL gets their collective shit together and realize that a team like the Patsies should have been there and a team like the pedestrian Chargers should be home, things will be as they should.

In 2005 we at least had 10 or 11 wins I think and I don't think there was an AFC team that deserved to have our spot in the playoffs. This year it is highly arguable that another AFC team or two should have been there in place of the Chargers.

did you steelers fans bow down to every team you faced in 2005? because they were "clearly the superior team"?

after your steelers beat them did that still make them superior? :coffee:

no matter how much you homers think your team just cant lose and have already wrapped up the SB, these teams still have to play each other on Sunday.

And I say kiss my arse to the fact that you guys come in thumping your chest about doing this and doing that when clearly you haven't done squat in the playoffs for some time now.

You think that just because you survived the regular season and beat the colts at home that you are all of a sudden some superior team.

No matter how much you charger :troll:s think your team can win, and are already preparing for either the titans or the ratbirds, your boys still have to come in to Pittsburgh and face the Men.

Yes, I do think my team is superior to yours. While I have respect for the chargers and what they accomplished down the stretch, it doesn't mean they're better or that they even belong on our field.

Most of you chargers fans are all alike. Get your arse kicked in the regular season, survive one game in the playoffs and starting trolling other team's boards pounding your chest only to have your team embarrassed year after year after year.

-ratbirds forum overwhelmed with trolls 2 years ago and dumped by the ratbirds
-last year I'll guess it was the same with the patriots* forum and you got dumped again
-and now this year to the Steelers board - wonder what the end result will be? :noidea: Another thumping?

Of course instead of staying in your hole, you want to come to a STEELERS board and try to tell us that we should be scared, that we should bow down, are you freaking serious?

The chargers have survived while the Steelers have thrived! Sunday you are about to find out what a superior team looks, acts, and sounds like and it certainly in hell won't be wearing powder blue!!

All I have to say is Steelers fans should be confident in their team. The Steelers were 12-4 this year with a very tough schedule and are the AFC's #2 seed for a reason. The Chargers fans should be confident to. The Chargers are on a winning streak and beat the Colts. So I have no problem with fans being confident in their team.

Pats fans have no reason to be pissed at the Chargers... since they were embarrassed during the season by a pretty bad Chargers team.

Talk about "schedule" and wins vs. good teams... they were dogshit. Yeah, they did more than anyone thought they would with Brady out. But the Pats would have been one and done in the playoffs. No doubt in my mind.

I understand your point of view, but I think you have to look at it from both perspectives. The Chargers have had a very disappointing season and got an amazing streak of luck to get into the playoffs. Then rode that to win 1 game against the Colts. On the other hand you have a team that was pretty dominating all year. Only loses are to playoff teams, only real beating was by the Eagles in week 2.

We both could make up mounds of excuses and could-ofs and what-ifs, like what if the fumble was ruled a fumble, what if the last second Panthers score didn't happen, what if our longsnapper doesnt get injured, what if the Colts miss the FG, but it doesn't change the background and perspective. 12-4 vs 8-8.

Then you couple that with the Charger fans coming in here and saying we're a whole new team, can't stop Sproles, blah blah, blah blah. You can see how that would get annoying.

Personally they way I see it, the Chargers are a talented team that had a terribly disappointing season, caught a wave of luck and won one quality game. Are they peaking at the right time, maybe, but if any fan base should be feeling confident, which do you think it should be 12-4 or 8-8? just my .02 :wave:

Look guys lets put it this way even though we beat the Steelers 11-10 it just shows we didn’t allow chargers to get away from us, Ben had a great day threw for 309 yard, parker had a great day also with 115 rushing yards. I tell you point blank why we will beat them; it’s the same reason why Adrian Peterson was able to break Jamal Lewis record last year in rushing yards in a game, CHARGERS CANT STOP THE RUN! Parker seems to be healthy, so I predict that parker rushes for at least 120 yards if not even more. Ben I think has proven himself that he can play when he’s injured, if a motorcycle accident cant keep him down nothing can lol! Plus I think our o-line will do a much better job protecting Ben, just because he had a concussion so their be on their A game threw out the playoffs and the superbowl hopefully:tt:. That given said take it from the Doctor.

They were (as were the Giants were last year). In fact, the Steelers got revenge on the Bengals and Colts for regular seaon losses before dismantling the Bronco's in the AFCCG.

The Chargers have a lot of weapons. I know that, but I have to admit that I am less worried when I look at how much they struggled in the regular season. Can the Chargers beat the Steelers? No question about it. But, I don't believe an 8-8 team has ever gone deep into the playoffs (not that that is reason to say the Chargers won't be the first) and I believe there is a reason for it:

The Chargers record could have been much different if not for one play here or there. Well, so could have the Steelers' record. The difference is that good teams finish. When you have a match-up such as this one that will likely be tight, it'll come down to the team that finishes its games and the Steelers have been doing that all year long. In fact, they're now a very confident team for it.

Solid post. You are right. Good teams finish, and had the Chargers been a good team all season, we wouldnt have to sit here and explain "that we arent the normal 8-8 team". I know there are fans on here like you who REALIZE how the Chargers lost some of thier games, and who may have actually seen a Charger game or two, but there are lots on here that just look at the record and say this team doesnt deserve to be in the postseason. Ask P. Manning and T. Dungy if this team belongs in the postseason.
But to use your logic, good teams must finish well. And thats exactly what the Chargers have done. They have been in what-in-essense were must win games for 5 weeks now, and no matter the competition, found a way to pull out some wins, when a lot of teams mentioned on here didnt. (Tampa, Denver, etc.) Nobody would say the Colts didnt belong in the playoffs, and anyone who watched that game knows that a couple of redzone TO's and a freak (athought Brilliant) touchdown pass by Manning were the only thing that kept that game close. So if we are going to say that good teams finish games well, we have to admit that teams that finish the season peaking and beat a great (see 9 game winning streak, one against Pitt) Colts team are worthy of being callled good too.

This may sound crazy but, I don't think the Colts are all that. You guys have beaten them, we have beaten them (although lost a heart breaker this year) and the Pats beat them regularly. No, you have a point in celebrating the Chargers for winning these last 5 games. That is a team that is peaking at the right time (playing Oakland, Kansas City and a floundering Denver team helps too, but hey! I'll be the first to admit that you have to play with the hand you're dealt).

Let me ask you though; The Chargers ARE 8-8 and did play in a relatively weak division this year. They are going to play a very tough 12-4 Steelers team with the best defense in the NFL. What are your concerns?

(Jacksonvile Jaguars last season). i'm going to go above and beyond, and obvious and say you guys don't have a chance in h-e-double hockey sticks pulling off a win IN Pittsburgh versus our squad. honestly, it's not happening. the sooner you learn that, the sooner we won't have to read your nonsense. savvy? grand. peace.

Just keep thinking our offense is bad. That is good. We rolled on the Chargers in every statistic in the last game. It was no contest. How did your high calibred O do against the Steelers D last time? That is all that matters. Ben and Willie need to control the ball and not turn it over, and this game is a cakewalk. Pretty simple if you ask me.

I wouldn't go as far to say it's going to be a cakewalk, I think it'll be a hard fought game on both sides, but you do make a good point in saying that their high scoring offense was not very high scoring when matched up against our D.

Really, the only thing that will lose the game for the Steelers is TO's, in games where Ben has had 2 TO's or less, we've won, sometimes by large margins and 5 times against top ranked defenses. That's really the only thing Charger fans can hope for. No high scoring offense has fared well against our defense and really the only way those teams were able to put up TD's or get wins were off of TO's.

Getting to the playoffs and winning is WHAT matters!!!!
They dont give a trophy for the team with the best Stats. If stats mattered a lot of teams that are home right now, would be still in it, and a lot of the teams that ARE in it wouldnt be.
I'm not sure what you brought up the other arguement for, we didnt beat you last time and therefore if we pull it out Sunday would only have beaten you once at home this year?

I'm with you. TO's will decide this game, but the arguement some people make is that nobody can beat us, we can only beat ourselves with TO's. There is someting that is left out with this thinking. Good teams FORCE turnovers. Yes QB's make dumb throws, and RB's Drop the rock, but good teams strip the ball and play the right coverage and make plays. Sure there are fluke TO's but for the most part, good teams make a habit of winning the TO battle. So lets make a pact. Whosever team loses, if its due to TO's lets congratulate the OTHER team form causing them, and not play the "the only way you beat us was...." card. Deal?

I was never saying that I would use that as an excuse if we lost, though it would be a major reason why for either team, you are correct in that. I will absolutely give my congrats to the Chargers and their fans if they win the game, it will be a well deserved win if they can pull it off, so there's no reason not to.

My only twist on your statement would be while good teams force TO's, good QB's avoid them as well, which Ben shows up at the game will ultimately decide the outcome in my eyes. Will it be the one that played smart against the Chargers, Pats, Cowboys and Ravens, or will it be the one that faced the Titans and threw 2 INT's and had 4 fumbles (? give or take one, I can't even remember how many). As a Steeler fan of course I'm hoping it's the first one.

One thing that gives me hope as well is actually something that most fans of the Chargers see as a non-factor and that's the weather. If the weather is bad this game (which at this point there's only a slight chance that it will be) it actually increases Ben's performances, he takes better care of the ball and has not lost any of the 5 games where the weather has been bad and has had very few TO's in those games. Granted, 2 of those games were Browns and Bengals games, but the other 3 (Indy, Pats, Cowboys) the opposing QB's went to have some of their worst games as far as TO's and stats go and Ben would have some of his best. I'm not saying it's a definite lock that he won't play bad if the weather is bad, but he's proven he does play very smart in those conditions.

Brilliant post. Good QB's do tend to avoid them and youre right, we dont know which "Ben" will show up on Sunday. My prayer is that no matter which Ben shows up he has no ill effects from his head injury. Ive had a couple of concussions and any time i so as bump my head im STILL not right.
I love WATCHING football in REAL weather, but i do agree with you that that would favor the steelers and here is why. There are enough SD players that went to cold weather colleges so they know how to play in the weather, but a STRENTGH in Sproles game is speed and quick moves, and nobody is fact or moving quick with that footing. If thats the case, i hope Hester and Benned can as least keep you D honest with the run game. By the way my last post want directed at you, sorry if it came across in any way other than respectful.

Oh no, it's ok, I didn't take any personal disrespect to the comment. I really do think though that practice conditions and year round playing conditions have an impact on warm weather teams, no matter where they used to play. If you look at someone like Romo, who grew up in Wisconsin, he had one of his worst games of the year in the cold, windy conditions at Pitt. A large part of that in my eyes was how they ran their practices down in Dallas though, they knew the conditions were going to be freezing and windy, yet they moved their practice indoors one day because it was too windy lol. He also had stated before the game that he was used to playing in cold weather and that 7 degree wind chills were like a fall day for him, then he wore no sleeves, no gloves and had his hand warmer turned around facing his back, for the entire game. All I heard from Dallas fans on their board all week was that weather would have no effect on the game and that both teams have to deal with it , so it's no advantage at all and I truly believe it ended up being a huge advantage for the Steelers that day. Because of the division we're in, more times than not during this time of year our players are out in those cold conditions, so they get more continued exposure to it.

I'm worried about Ben's concussions as well and I hope that they really put a lot into evaluating him and clearing him for the game, or else I will lose a ton of respect for the organization that I've known and loved for my whole life. We have a quality back up in Leftwich right now, so I hope if Ben shows big signs of struggling out there they do the right thing and take him out of the game.

Whoa! No homerism here bud and I challenge you to find a post of mine stating that the Chargers have no chance.

In 2005 we at least had 10 or 11 wins I think and I don't think there was an AFC team that deserved to have our spot in the playoffs. This year it is highly arguable that another AFC team or two should have been there in place of the Chargers.I have now seem a couple of post inferring that the system that is set up is broken. If the Pats should be here and the Bolt's should not, why stop there. Why not just eliminate the conference system altogether. If all you want is the best teams then what is the point of having division\conference as a system? Where do you stop with it. What a shame it would be if the Steelers lost to a team that shouldn't even be there at all. I know. Just have one big division with all the best teams at the top going to the playoffs. Fact is, the Bolt's did what they had to do to win the division that they are placed in by the league. Weak division or not thats the way it is. If the only way we get in is through the back door then so be it. Quit cryin about this. Cripes... you guys better be effen ready, were gonna give you a fuggin game.

I don't mind it, the Chargers deserve to be in the playoffs, they won their division, that's all you can ask for. Then consider it's the cheatriots, I'm not going to feel sorry for them one bit. You will always have random anomalies, I don't think we need an overhaul just because a worthy Charger team made it. The Chargers did smash the Patriots head to head, so I can't see home the Cheats have any room to complain.Sorry. Shoulda read one more post before my rant. Thanks for that.

How did the Chargers blow that game? I mean they just beat the Pats physically and statiscally throughout. At one moment, it looked like it was going to be a blowout when the lead was 14-3 in the 1st half. It wasn't like the Pats played toe-toe with them all game.

BTW-when the prevent D was called at the end of that 1st half which allowed the Pats to score a TD, it sure looked like it was Marty's call. However-guess what happened with us in the playoffs last year against the Giants-with 47 seconds to go in the 1st half, a PREVENT D was called, and the Giants marched down the field and scored. Pt being that it became obvious that Wade called that prevent in the Chargers playoff game.

I was STOKED when Marty was canned, and you guys can have Wade. I am not a fan of either guy. That game was blown by the coaches in many ways, but at the end of the day you have to tip your cap to the Pats for taking advantage.

But seeing that this is a Steeler Forum, I know that none of them give a damn. :wink02:

i agree and would pull for the chargers in the afc. i used to like the titans/oilers (cambell, moon, george, mcnair etc.) but after the towel stomping incident i only wish them misery. same with the ravens.

if the steelers dont make it, im with the chargers....

HOWEVER, while i very rarely root for an nfc team in the sb (i did last year and any other year vs the pats, plus TB vs. OAK) i would probably pull for philadelphia or carolina and MOST definitely arizona (but hell isnt freezing over anytime soon).

I always wonder if "The Drive" and "The Fumble" from the 80's is still in Marty's psyches. He hasn't won a playoff game since '93...since then, I've noticed his teams have played scared in the playoffs(i.e. his Chiefs had the #1 seed TWICE but went 1 and done, only to lose control of them at the end of his tenure).

I usually root for the NFC teams, and believe it not, my NFCE rivals Giants and Redskins. However-I can never, never, NEVER root for Philly. Ever since Buddy Ryan/Bounty Bowl in the late 80's, I've developed a deep-rooted hatred for the Eagles.

*ugh* Don't remind me!:doh: I couldn't believe even Barry Switzer was dumb enough to make that call.

Although at times-I try to rationalize to myself how our DL was nicked with injuries, and teams in recent weeks were kniving through it with ease(like Ricky Watters was doing that day). Of course, rationalizing doesn't exactly erase the pain either.

And of course too, somehow Barry thought it was a good idea to move our run stuffing DT(Leon Lett) to DE during this stretch, which is when our run D took a hit. Yet another boneheaded Barry move.

The thing about Bo was that I've never seen an RB so strong, fast, elusive, and incredibly hard to tackle all rolled up into one. His first game in that '87 Monday Nighter at Seattle was a beauty. Al Michaels saying "There goes Bo!" all night long was classic.

Alright... back on track... I'm off the fence....

I just watched that week 11 game again.

Chargers win this one 20-17.

LT held our offense back in that game. If Sproles had the same touches LT did... he would have gained 100 rushing... at least.

Ben made some solid plays, but no way he throws for 300 again. those little dink passes to the TE... not gonna be there this weekend.

Willie was solid, but his TD was the result of a holding call (more like a tackle)... hence... it wasn't a TD.

If the Chargers D holds the running game in check... it's over for the Steelers.

Also... Scifres WAS a factor in that game and he'll be a factor again.

It's the weekend and it's almost game time. If I'm wrong I'll gladly come back and give the Steelers their props. But I think Bad Ben shows up and Rivers Delivers.

The thing about Bo was that I've never seen an RB so strong, fast, elusive, and incredibly hard to tackle all rolled up into one. His first game in that '87 Monday Nighter at Seattle was a beauty. Al Michaels saying "There goes Bo!" all night long was classic.remember? the bungles cracked his hip the week before. after that, they really had no answer to the high powered bills. it got into their heads and ended up in a landslide.

I'm old enough to have done the "Willie Stargell" at the plate when I was in little league. :drink: Good times...

TNewman41, Bo was beyond exceptional. I remember that game and him giving BOZ a free ride into the endzone... Just a freak like talent.

We are getting a little faggy now. Let's rip each others teams again and get back to the topic at hand.

steelers defense this year is better than any the bolts or cowboys would EVER dream of having (as was our defense from 94-95, 2001, 2004, and any team in the 70's).

Alright... back on track... I'm off the fence....

I just watched that week 11 game again.

Chargers win this one 20-17.

LT held our offense back in that game. If Sproles had the same touches LT did... he would have gained 100 rushing... at least.

Ben made some solid plays, but no way he throws for 300 again. those little dink passes to the TE... not gonna be there this weekend.

Willie was solid, but his TD was the result of a holding call (more like a tackle)... hence... it wasn't a TD.

If the Chargers D holds the running game in check... it's over for the Steelers.

Also... Scifres WAS a factor in that game and he'll be a factor again.

It's the weekend and it's almost game time. If I'm wrong I'll gladly come back and give the Steelers their props. But I think Bad Ben shows up and Rivers Delivers.

see '95 when the steelers were in yet another afcc game (and sb appearance).

what were tha chargers doing? (honestly, i cant remember- but im willing to bet
the "super bowl losers curse" was in play).

believe me... every afcc game loss hurts. but if it werent for every steeler loss in that particular game they would be in the "superbowl" 25% of the time, and the nfl definitely doesnt want that type of NY yankee dominance.

I actually think that this is something your fanbase is overlooking. We were 14-2 two years ago. In the AFCCG last year. Now you guys want to focus on 8-8 like we are some fluke team just lucky to be here. It is gonna be interesting Sunday is all that I will say...

In all fairness...

The wk2 Denver game and the infamous Hackuli BS call-that should have been 1 more win...9-7.

Shawn Merriman, of course the Chargers best pass rusher...that's another 2, maybe 3 more wins...11-5. Just imagine if the Colts lost Dwight Freeney for the entire season.

Not to mention too the reg season Colts game where Indy needed some luck, and won on a last second 50 yard FG. Possibly 12-4?

not exactly by his play on the field, but by his words in his presser after they fell to 4-8 record.

LT and jerome bettis share a similar trait.... even when one is unable to physically lead, others will follow.

Well hey, it's not like that's never happened before....the Steelers won the SB in '05 only to go 8-8 the next year.

Dallas went from winning the SB in '95 at 12-4 to going 10-6 and second in the division the next year then to 6-10 the year after that, and they've never quite recovered.

I'm just sayin, it happens.

Every team has had if's this year....if the Steelers hadn't lost their long snapper against the Giants, we might have won that game, if we didn't have 2 veteran OLmen on IR we might be able to block for the run and pass better, if WP hadn't been injured half the year, who knows what he may have done. If Ben hadn't been injured since the end of week 1 I'm sure it would have affected his game play positively (he did go from 2nd best QB in the league to 24th in one season partially because of all these injuries on offense). A lot of those ifs could have resulted in us being 14-2, 15-1 or possibly undefeated. Unfortunately, it's extremely rare for any team to have a perfect season with no turmoil to overcome. It's all about how they overcome these things as a whole team.

Yeah he is good in that respect, I miss Randle El as our return guy, you never knew when he was going to break for a big return. Holmes just isn't as good.

It helps that we have one of the best coverage units in KR and PR this year though, I think they will continue to do a decent job this game. Fox has been irreplaceable on ST's this year and Harrison is always an asset there.

They are not hearing it. We are just the Chargers. But....Cooper is better, Castillo is better, Weddle is better, Igor is better,..When Rivera took over he made a statement to the effect that with Cottrell, a lot of guys were just out of position. 4 weeks into his tenure the improvement has been that guys are where they should be. It shows on the field. We had lost the 'edge' so to speak. We have it back at this point and we are hitting on all cylinders just like at the end of last season. I guess Sunday afternoon we will see.

The media is quick to point out that…
- The Steelers (along with the Cardinals) were the only NFL teams to win all of their Division games.

- The Chargers are 0-5 against playoff teams

- The Steelers had the toughest schedule during the regular season

What the media doesn’t want to acknowledge is that….

- The Chargers finished 5 -1 in Divisional play with their only loss handed to then by Ed Hochuli

- If you discount the two games against Division rival BAL, the Steelers were 1-3 against playoff teams and, if you throw out the SD game, they were 0-3 against playoff teams.

- Not only did the Chargers face 5 non-divisional teams that ended up in the playoffs, they beat 3 non-divisional teams that, if not for the fact that they lost to SD, would have made the playoffs.

in addition..........

the steelers opponents had a composite record of 114-92-2 for a winning percentage of .548

the bolts opponents had a composite record of 117-91 for a winning percentage of .562

so who really had the more difficult schedule?

The mediots can make that claim, but with a little research you can fid out that they really dont know what the heck they are talking about.

The media is quick to point out that…
- The Steelers (along with the Cardinals) were the only NFL teams to win all of their Division games.

- The Chargers are 0-5 against playoff teams

- The Steelers had the toughest schedule during the regular season

What the media doesn’t want to acknowledge is that….

- The Chargers finished 5 -1 in Divisional play with their only loss handed to then by Ed Hochuli

- If you discount the two games against Division rival BAL, the Steelers were 1-3 against playoff teams and, if you throw out the SD game, they were 0-3 against playoff teams.

- Not only did the Chargers face 5 non-divisional teams that ended up in the playoffs, they beat 3 non-divisional teams that, if not for the fact that they lost to SD, would have made the playoffs.

in addition..........

the steelers opponents had a composite record of 114-92-2 for a winning percentage of .548

the bolts opponents had a composite record of 117-91 for a winning percentage of .562

so who really had the more difficult schedule?

The mediots can make that claim, but with a little research you can fid out that they really dont know what the heck they are talking about.

:blah:

Here is too a good game on both sides!

Lol you can't discount the Steelers winning games vs. playoff teams, that's the funniest thing I've ever heard....what a far fetched way to rationalize things.

Break it down any way you want but the Steelers DID beat playoff teams 3 times this season (and beat the Pats and Cowboys, both games if lost would put them into the playoffs and keep Pitt out).

What a silly argument.

If Cincinnati loses the tie with Philadelphia, the Chargers and Steelers would have the exact same strength of schedule.

And before you hit "quick reply" and furiously type "well, who had the better record?!",
that wasn't my point. My point was you must not have known the S.O.S. for either team...

Chargers didn't play any NFC East teams and didn't play the Titans who had the best regular season.

They may look about even, but there's one glaring difference in the schedule....Steelers had to play half of their season against top 10 defenses, Chargers.....3???

Yes 3, Steelers, Pats and Bucs

Steelers played Ravens twice, Eagles, Giants, Redskins, Cowboys, Pats and Titans.

stomp into the ground? you make it sound like its men against boys. Don't be fooled. The Bolt's are every bit as good as the Steelers. I only hope the players are half as koky as most of the posters on this forum. Let me get this straight. By virtue of your earlier 11-10 win you really think your going to waltz right through this thing? The only difference I see between this board and the Colt's forum last week is the address bar in my computer.

You're on our forums, what the hell do you expect? If you don't like the confidence and biased opinion we offer, go back to your own community. Nobody, and really, I mean nobody gives a shit what any of you think. You're not intimidating us by coming here and talking about how we barely beat you last game. You were dominated in every facet of the game, bad officiating kept it close. Just leave, nobody cares.

I'm sure you do hope the players are taking this game lightly.....you would be sorely mistaken though. They don't take any game lightly during the regular season or especially in the playoffs.

What do you expect on a Steelers forum though honestly? Do you really expect us not to have faith in our team and be proud of all they have accomplished this year and think that they can beat anyone that stands in our way?

I've browsed the Chargers forums as well, and let me tell you, Chargers fans have no room to talk by coming over here and telling us we shouldn't be so confident in our players. Many of your fans have already deemed SD superbowl winners and are predicting a blowout for this game.

Get over it, we're Steelers fans and we have faith!!!!

If I wasnt sure statistics were total BS before this game, now I'm convinced. SOS doesn't tell you how the teams were playing when they played. It doesn't take into consideration who was hot at the time, who was struggling, who was injured, game conditons, rivalries, etc.... I say the Steelers schedule was brutal, no matter where it started or ended on the SOS.

I think the ironic thing is the fact that the mass of these trolls have been disrespecting the Steelers and then whining about not being respected. It started to get old after about 2 days. There have been some classy Bolts fans here and there, but mostly its just a refusal to acknowledge how good the Steelers are while expecting us to do the same for an 8-8 team that backed in to the playoffs.

I will say it here and now, just as i have a couple of other times. Its a good story. I like the Chargers, and I think Rivers is a good quarterback. I also honestly think the Steelers are going to fully dominate this game.
