Still people picking against our Steelers and saying they can't get it done. So hopefully they see it and keep the chip on their shoulder.

I dont see any reason at all why the Steelers cant get it done against the Bronco's.

I know the Broncos made big plays when it counted - but the Steelers totally owned the Colts for 95% of their game - the only surprise was that the Colts were as close as they were!

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

If it's about motivation, it's a no-brainer.

Firstly there's the Bettis factor - you know every member of the Steeler organisation wants to send Jerome off with a ring, and that's a powerful motivator. Secondly there's the fact that the majority of the 'experts' are still picking the Broncos - All Cowher has to do is post some of the picks up in the locker room and point out that they're still considered underdogs. Finally the Steelers have nothing to lose - the home field advantage, the better season's performance, the home 9-0 record all place the pressure to win on the Bronco's. Denver know this, which is why they have spent all week playing down home-field advantage.

I agree LITP. I know Plummer is more mobile than Manning, but LeBeau had an excellent plan and I believe he will do the same this week. Plus the Steelers players are playing inspired with so much heart. They want to get themselves there, but want to get Bettis there.

got focus??????

(jeeze...5 minutes with jerome bettis and denver is mentionned once with 20 seconds left) "would he do anything different if asked to carry the ball this week in the same situation"? answer "no".

status quo for AFC Championship GAme preperation?? not really. usually they get on TV and talk about the Super Bowl

Yep, every week, everybody says.. ' the bengals are hot right now, andthey are hungary, I like the bengals in this game".... uumm yeah how'd that work out for you...

or

"the colts owned the steelers in their first meeting, I think you'll see another game like the first one where peyton manning picks apart that secondary and the defense gives Ben fits" ... uumm yeah you were right on with that assessment

or

"jake is too mobile and lebeau cant get to him like he could to manning, and the denver defense is highly underrated and will shut down the steelers offense" .... yeah we'll see jerkoffs, we'll see

Just a little reminder don't forget Cowher has a press conference today. Starts at 2PM I'm pretty sure on NFL Network.

Give me a pocket passer like Ben any day of the week.

I really dont like QB's that specialise in roll-outs and scrambling - they always seem to be inferior game managers - a QB is there to throw the ball effectively, the rest is a bonus.

I have noticed Ben is just mobile enough to buy himself an extra few seconds to get the pass away - I also notice he isn't being panicked in resorting to the scramble too quickly this season and is staying alive and waiting for a WR to get open.

Even against the Pats at the start of the year he avoided 6/7 sacks just by being able to outrun the LB's and D-Line - very frustrating for a Pats fan to watch I have to say ha ha!

Anyway, I hope he doesnt try to force a pass whilst on the run - he done a couple against the Bengals and the Colts and got away with them - its all about getting a little bit of luck when you need it.

I'm not worried about the media coverage at all. The Steelers have good players with level heads compared to other NFL teams (for the most part that is)---I doubt very much that the increased attention is getting to their egos. They are still the underdog team and they still have a lot to play for. Let's get it done in Denver
