Steelers lost big in Indy in late November 2005 and then won 6 weeks later in the playoffs.

I can live with a repeat performance of that against the Pats and will not be disheartened by a 17-21 point loss.

This game Sunday hopefully will be fun but the games in January are what really matter. Just win the division and go from there.

just to add tomlins perspective-

Quote:
What is the psychology of going into a game as an underdog?

That is probably some of the games Hines (Ward) likes to play with himself to get himself ready to play. Most guys do that. Hines is better than most. Hines has a ‘me against the world’ mentality. Hines still believes that a lot of people doubt his ability and that is the driving force for him. The reality is that they are a very good team and we think we are capable of being a very good team. This is not an Appalachian State at Michigan football game we are going into this weekend. They are good and we have to play well to have a chance to win. If we don’t, we are probably going to lose.

Yeah, see, the thing is, we are a very good football team. Our defense is exceptional and our offense is very, very good when it clicks. The Steelers will be coming to play. I don't care if the Pats took a couple weeks off or not. Both these teams will be bringing their A game, and, while the Steelers aren't nearly as explosive offensively as the Pats, they are vastly superior on the other side of the ball. These teams are not very far apart talent-wise.

Anything more than a TD is a total teaser.

Its a home game in "weather" for the leads leading offense, an undefeated team and the leagues "4th" best defense. They are favored because of their own talents and accomplishments as much as the steelers are road dogs because of their losses at NY, Zona and Denver.

It won't matter what the spread is come half time. The Patriots hate the Steelers, the Steelers hate the Patriots. Its one of the closest gaurded rivalries in football. Unlike the Colts Pats, these two teams don't respect each other and truly hate each other.

IMO the Colts hate the Pats but with Dungy and Peyton you do not get the verbalization you do with the Steelers - kind of like an alcohol fire that is very hot but does not throw off as many obvious flames.

The Steelers may hate the Pats but they should respect having lost 4 out of the last 5 match-ups (including the 2 home AFC championship losses).

I agree the Pats think they can beat the Steelers anytime they need to and have no respect for them, regarding the Steelers & Cowher as the dumb kid who can always be outsmarted.

Weren't we underdogs by a lot in the playoff game against the Colts in 05? Nobody thought we could beat them. I would prefer having the Steeler be underdogs.
