Indy's was slightly better, and they broke. Denver's was even better, and, well...Special teams can be a killer, too. Being in a dome means you won't get the free pass 37 yardline starting field position Jeff Reed usually allows in the outdoors. ARE can KILL you with one run.
Good team...but just good. As the game approaches, I honestly feel like the Steelers are truly a team of destiny this year. It's not a bad draw for the Hawks. They get some big-time exposure, pick up some bandwagoners, sell some merchandise and make that big blip on the radar. They are good enough to make a game out of it, too.
That is so weird, because the closer the game gets, we too feel like we are the team of destiny....and personally I can't wait to hear the excuses of why we won the game. It will be anything but credit to the Seahawks. The Steelers have not faced an offensive line or QB up to the caliber of the Seahawks yet this year either.....if you think you have, you have another thing coming this Sunday. Your QB will have to figure out a way to get into the end zone. We have the best red zone D in the league. And our QB is outstanding in the red zone too...there is no rattling Hasselbeck this year. Good luck trying.
