Until James Harrison retires, don't expect any favors. In fact, even if the Steelers get the #1 seed, expect there to be some sort of new clause that sends them to play a road game in Denver. In fact, ALL of Pittsburgh's play-off games will be in Denver. Houston at Pittsburgh, played in Denver. Indianapolis at Pittsburgh, played in Denver. SuperBowl... moved from New York to Denver.
Of course, how could I forget that Goodell wants the Steelers to lose? And of course, with all Steelers playoff games now in Denver, Goodell can execute his master plan to fine James Harrison $50,000 every time the Steelers step into Sports Authority Field at Mile High and another $75,000 every time Harrison looks at Peyton Manning the wrong way. I should have known of Goodell's master plan all along.
