Default Coin Toss - Receive or Kick against Patriots?

Anyone have statistics what the Steelers have been doing this year when we win the cointoss? I think we should receive because we are so strong when ahead in the first quarter, but a buddy says we have the advantage kicking because of the strength of our defense.

In the past, we call "tails"
then we try to recieve just so that we can either score first, or establish field position
if not we choose to give them the open end of the stadium to drive towards in the fourth.

I'm going to need a second source on this one though...

We usually do call tails..and if we get the ball..hell yeah, we take it first.. while there's benefits, obviously of getting the ball first in the second half..you cant allow yourself to bypass the opportunity to strike first when the game starts, and set the tempo!
