This isn't Cowher football.

Mike Tomlin has shown that he can make huge post-halftime adjustments. Take a look at our 3rd quarter statistics. Our point margin is huge. Like, astronomically huge. While Arians is a bit of a dullard, Lebeau's adjustments absolutely shuts down offenses that were on a hot streak. And for whatever ineptness Arians has at one-dimensional playcalling, Ben has that "it" factor that makes things happen during crunch time.

And as Tomlin has shown playing the Chargers, give him two weeks of prep-time and a well-rested team, and he'll work magic. The Divisional game against the Chargers was nothing like the nail-biter during the regular season.

In recent history, our secondary was odd. We would statistically be good against the pass, but we always had a tendency to give up huge passing plays to prolific offenses (Brady and the Patriots, Indy and the Colts, etc.) With Tomlin on board and his secondary coaching experience, he seems to have greatly shored up this deficiency with pretty much the same players. They're leaps and bounds better than they were several years ago.

Not going to lie. Warner and Fitz worries me quite a bit. They're explosive and hot at just the right time. Fitz has ascended into a whole new level, and while Ike has been quietly shutting down #1 receivers of good offenses, I don't know yet if he will be quite enough. I don't doubt that a big play will happen here and there in two weeks.

I don't really care too much about Whiz's past. The insider information works both ways, even if it's more sided in Whizenhunt's favor.

And of course the Cardinal fans won't want to talk about those 2 performances where Warner was horrible against 3-4 defenses in the Jets and Cheaters. Warner won't know what hit him on 2/1/09.

As fans we have the luxury of feeling confident though, so I really don't think they have any place to come in here and tell us how we should or shouldn't feel about our confidence level. IMO the Cardinals don't really bring anything to the field that the Steelers haven't faced (and beaten) already this year.
Great post SteelCityMom! It's highly unfortunate that it is also probably more intelligent than anything we'll hear in the pre-game analysis from the national sites like bspn, fox, cbs, and nbc.

We will run the ball well against this defense and that will be the difference in the game. Although the rushing game has not been a strength all season it has improved through the second half of the season. The line isnt good enough to run against a good defense but they have played well when going up against average run defenses. The Cards are just that an average run defense even in these playoffs they are giving up over 4 yds a pop.

I give the slight edge because the Steelers have played more consistent for a longer period.. That's IT!
Ya those stats are inflated from your 12th man Jake Delhome

We already have 5 super bowl wins. How many do the cardinals have?

I've had this "We are on a Roll" argument with quite a few Card fans. I have never seen a more inept preformance from a QB and coaching staff than I witnessed from "Jake the Fake" and company that night. The Falcons were a one trick pony with Turner. The Eagles had a one dimensional offense and an over-rated defense. (They played their best game of the year against us and played only 2 decent passing teams all year, Cards and Cowboys.)
