Look, don't make me choose between the Steelers and any other team. We both know who's going to win!

But yeah. The only way I could love this Seattle team more is if they wore black and gold.

And thinking about this a little more...

You know who I feel bad for? Gus Bradley.

The Hawks had a top-3 D last year and came within one defensive meltdown of making the NFCCG and he bolts for... Jacksonville?!

Now the Hawks hoist the Lombardi and he... is stuck in Jacksonville.

He must be crying himself to sleep every night.

I would say that he has nightmares when he sleeps, but he's coaching Jacksonville; so it appears as if he's already living one.

Good Lawd, how I love those 08 Steelers.

Thanks for posting exhibits A and B why!

EDIT: That's Ike calling for the tipped ball rule. Sorry I didn't notice until the third re-watch. I was too busy hooping/hollering and admiring the hit to notice minute details!

I remember when analyt's were drooling over the Packers offense, calling them a dynasty in the making. Same with the 49ers from last year. The thing is, it's a lot harder to be a dynasty now due to FA. The only reason the Pats had a dynasty in the early 2000s was because they had a brilliant headcoach and a superb QB and a pretty good defense (and obvs some videocameras )

They had a pretty damn good defense too.

Belichick only wins with bill parcells players.

Puhhleeaase!!!! Seriously, no disrespect intended, everyone has a right to an opinion. And I will readily admit that 70's Steelers mean more to me than is probably rational. But to compare the two even for one game is ludicrous to me.

Hawks played like the Steelers defense in the 2005-06 divisional round when the Steelers beat Manning. The only difference was, the refs kept the Colts in that game otherwise Troy's INT would have ended that game 21-10.

What dipshit forgets is that Ben Roethlisberger scored the go-ahead TD on the play he was injured, so he did enough to help the team win regardless.

Anybody who doesn't think that the BB injury didn't have an effect on the rest of the season, is either: a) a Ravens fan, b) stirring the pot, or c) delusional.

He is at least two of the three.
