i really understand the game.
lets get down to the nitty gritty. im gonna post some stats and since you dont like them, throw em out the window to be fair.
steelers have allowed 63 YPG in rushing this year. that is the 5th best in the entire history of the nfl. yet if you look at their past 3-4 playoff games
they are allowing an astronomically low 40 yards per game.
what could possibly be reason? do they crank it up a notch come playoff time? of course not. this would imply they arent going all out during the regular season. their opposition simply tightens up when faced with the buzzsaw.
and this is from some pretty confident teams much more ****y than the jets, from the chargers to the ravens.
while they pucker up, the steelers are simply free flowing.
the steelers are a 'been there, done that' group with a "been there, done that" coach who says "we will go there again because that is the standard", despite what some newb coach proclaims on HBO's HARD KNOCKS.
thats great rex got to hold his daddys ring as a child. that, nor his words, dont mean shit come sunday.
