NFL from the sidelines

Post-AFC Championship thoughts

As they came off the field following their 24-19 win over the New York Jets, the Steelers couldn't help themselves.

"Can't wait," they screamed, taking a shot at Jets linebacker Bart Scott's rant last week following the team's 28-21 upset of New England.

Mike Tomlin added a little more fuel, telling the players that the next time they play the Jets, "It will be personal."

That was an obvious shot at Jets coach Rex Ryan, who told his team prior to games against Indianapolis and New England in the playoffs, it was personal.

For their game against the Steelers, Ryan was abnormally quiet.

But you can bet that if the Steelers play the Jets in 2011 assuming there's a season Ryan won't be quiet.

Despite losing to New York, 22-17 last month, the Steelers knew they could run the ball against the Jets, gaining 146 yards in that game.

That's why we saw such a run-heavy offense in this game from Pittsburgh. The Steelers had little respect for New York's run-stopping ability.

Kudos to the offensive line for continuing to grind away at New York despite losing center Maurkice Pouncey during the first series to a sprained ankle.

Pouncey said, by the way, that there's no way he's missing the Super Bowl.

The NFL has to love a Pittsburgh-Green Bay Super Bowl.

The fan bases should be in a frenzy.

It's not too early to start talking dynasty with these Steelers. Three Super Bowl appearances in six years - with two victories already in hand - qualifies in my eyes.

It's too bad that Ike Taylor fell down and allowed Santonio Holmes to fly by him for a touchdown catch. Holmes did nothing else in this game.
