Thats a nice try Tony.
But im afraid im not going to let you simply copy/paste my own argument back at me with the names of the teams altered.
Steeler fans have been saying all season that the Patriots domination of them 'has to end sometime', that these things 'work in cycles'.
Now - if that holds true then it reasonable to assume that the Broncos (who match up well against the Colts on paper) should be very capable of beating their nemesis - the Colts.
If, however you disagree with this - then you are basically saying that the Steelers will not be able to get over the hump against the Patriots either.
You cant have your cake and eat it Tony - either psychological domination is an ongoing factor or its not.
Oh, and I know you really dont believe that the Pats D that the Colts faced in the regular season will bear any real resembelence to the one they may/ may not meet in the playoffs.
