That's funny you posted this... I just got done talking to my father about this. It would be an awesome run to make it all the way to Detroit, but I think we can do it... we are definitely playing our best football. We have outscored our last three opponents 80-12.

The good thing for us is that we've been in playoff mode for the last month..on the road and at home.. we're rolling now and if we keep it going the sky is the limit!

I love the way the team is playing and their attitude. One game at a time and the whole season is on the line. Their playing very well. The other day I heard on NFL Network no one wants to play the Steelers. Their playing their best football at the right time. Last year it was kinda reverse. We weren't playing very good going into the playoffs. Now were on track.

to bad we wont be facing opponents in the playoffs like the browns or vikings or detroit. outscoring out opponents 80-12 in the last 3 games is good for morale and momentum but thats about it.

if we make the playoffs the opposing head coach will be telling his team that
-the steelers arent shit.
-that were big headed with wins over opponents we shoulda easilly beatten.
-that were paper tigers
-that they are being disrespected by the media because of our mini-run
-that were 0-4 against afc playoff representatives and went down to the wire with the ravens and sandiego

sure, facing us in the playoffs will be intimidating for some teams, as well as it should be. but that is because of who we are, not what weve done in the past 3 weeks.

the above statements are what an opposing coach will preach to his team to quickly and psychologically get his players over the intimidation factor. while our momentum going into the playoffs helps the steelers confidence i dont really think it does anything to make our potential opponents scared. atleast if their well coached it wont (patriots)

We've also been pretty battle tested this season playing the likes of the bears, vikes, bungals, pats,etc. Even though we didnt win all of those games the xperience factor will help us out alot in playoff time.

believe me, if you play the Patriots, they will treat you with the highest respect. there will no overlooking the capabilities of the Steelers from the players, coaches, or fans.

And same applies to the Pats from us. Especially since you`ve shown us the door in the past,

'chick is definitely a good psychological strategist and tactician. part of what makes him such a successful, well rounded coach.

while i do not like the fact that it has worked for him, that is definitely not a knock on him. half the game is mental.

Tony,
I can say without a doubt, that a coach will never talk about the points you said above! Any coach worth salt always plays up the opponents! If the pats or any team in the playoffs use that kind of speach they will not win!!

I think that Jacksonville may use that kind of motivation, because they play down to the other teams level. IMO.

that thinking is a bit naiive. no coach recently has played the no respect card more than b. belicheck. dont you remember the 2001 playoffs and the locker room motivation he used against the steelers? youre kidding yourself if you dont think coaches use firey locker room speeches downgrading the opponents capabilities to motivate and hype up their players. while this isnt necessarily bill cowhers style, the coaches who dont do it arent trying to hard to win. (keep in mind this tactic only works and works more if the team wins) if it fails a coach can lose his players and be out of a job real quick)

ever notice the high turn over of head coaches in the nfl?

Tony, I agree with some of what you are saying, but trust me coaches do not downgrade their opponents like you think they do. If they did it would give their team the impression that they don't have to play to full ability!!!

If you and I were going to play a one on one b-ball game, would you want someone to tell you that this guy is a bum or you might want to play you best because I heard this guy is a real stud.

You want to let your team know that they are bettter and should win if they play their best but not that this team is paper tiger's....

any coach who tries one of these tactics exclusively over the other is probably gonna fail. just like an even balance between passing and running the ball there needs to be a calculated balance between using these types of motivational tactics and "mind games " so to speak. but you are probably correct on "paper tigers". that was probably too extreme of an example for me to use.
