The guys who know, the guys who will put all out on the field, will determine the outcome. Statistics do nothing except work within a computer to predict behavior.
So, if it feels good to bring out statistics card keep feeling good because come Sunday you wont have anything left to take the sting off a SB defeat. Unless, of course, it's to make excuses for why the Seahawks triumphed.
Question: Who do you think the rest of America....those who do not have an team in this game....think has the "heart" factor on their side going into this game....Seattle or Pittsburgh?
Seattle....beat the #5 and #6 at home?
Pittsburgh.....beat the #1, #2 and #3 on the road?
Then throw in the Bettis factor and Roethlisberger's promise to get him to the Super Bowl. And throw in the fact that Detroit has become Pittsburgh and the Super Bowl crowd will partisan Steelers.
Not saying Seattle doesn't have heart....just that Pittsburgh's is overflowing right now. I wouldn't want to be facing the Steelers right now. As Mike Ditka stated....this team just smells like destiny.
