Also, the Chargers were a much better team than the Colts, who almost beat the Steelers the next year in the AFCC Game. 11-5, 5th on offense, 9th on defense, and in a deeper division than Pittsburgh. The Steelers got to beat up on terrible Houston and Cincy teams four times that year.
I think the 9ers would have beat us too. They were awesome that year.

I think that the game would ahve been a lot closer. PITT's strength was its secondary (Woodson, Lake, Perry).

More importantly, a loss in SuperBowl XXIX would have meant that maybe Jerry Jones would not have had to pay off a certain "un-named" QB, in order ot have that certain "un-named" QB throw two gimme INTs to Larry Brown. Then again, Jerra might just have been that desperate to see PITT lose twice in a row.

Back to this game:

Norv Turner just threw Ryan Mathews under the bus, saying that Mathews lacks the vision needed to be an elite RB.

Worilds doesn't look nearly as good on the weak side as the strong, either.

If we let James go over money, expect to see him getting double digit sacks and strengthening NE's defense. And God forbid he gets to play us.
From last year to this year his compensation basically doubled and continues to rise next year and in 2014 by about another $1M per year. This contract was built for the Steelers to have an out after 2011. James is starting to get it going, but not to the $6.6M level in base salary at age 35.

BASE SALARY S. BONUS MISC. BONUS CAP HIT
2009 800,000 2,343,750 2,555,000 5,698,750
2010 755,000 2,000,000 3,600,000 6,355,000
2011 1,250,000 2,000,000 2,115,000 5,365,000
2012 5,565,000 2,000,000 1,465,000 9,030,000
2013 6,570,000 2,000,000 1,465,000 10,035,000
2014 7,575,000 - 1,465,000

So restructure his deal. I can think of a lot of other players I'd let go for money before Deebo.

Remember our defense when he was out and just after he got back? Not pretty.

I think the Steelers will make every effort to do exactly that this off-season...

I agree...would of loved to have seen that game

More importantly, a loss in SuperBowl XXIX would have meant that maybe Jerry Jones would not have had to pay off a certain "un-named" QB, in order ot have that certain "un-named" QB throw two gimme INTs to Larry Brown.

That game pisses me off still to this day
I have that game on tape..we totally gift wrapped that one for the cowgirls

Sounds like a recipe of disaster for the Steelers. This will not be an easy game for the Steelers. Even if the Steelers were healthy it would not be a easy game. Expect a low scoring, close game.

^This.I'm sure most Steelers fans are well aware of the team's
tendency to play down to inferior competition.
