Default I pray the Steelers do not get big headed.

They've pretty much stamped their ticket to the AFC Divisional playoffs. But now I'm worried about another facet that has haunted Steeler fans for many years:

Home playoff game letdowns. This is what will seperate Coach Tomlin from Cowher. Can Tomlin expel last year's demons and win home playoff games?

I've been just as pessimistic about our old demons as anyone but after witnessing the comeback win to beat Dallas, I got a really good feeling we will be taking down a couple more like home playoff games.

If our O starts coming around we are going to be ridiculously tough to stop

the steelers are very good at remaining humble, this is one of the reasons i love them (that and the fact i was born and raised in Da Burgh)...I dont think getting big-headed will be a problem

I don't think it was ever a case of the Steelers head's getting too big edman. I think it was more of a case of us always playing the future-Superbowl champions with teams headed by guys like Kordell Stewart, Neil O'Donnell, Yancy Thigpen and Eric Green, those players were our only demons.

I have no fear of going into any playoff game with Roethlisberger and Ward. I do fear our offense as a whole though. If we lose, it won't be because of big heads or demons, it will simply be because our offense is not good at all.

Umm.. they did make a Super Bowl video one year and then promptly choked away the AFCCG.

1994: Outclassed by an inferior team
1997: Kordell Stewart just blows.
2001: "Special" Teams
2004: Lost to superior team we all thought was awesome until we learned the truth years later. Oh yeah, and we had a Rookie QB.
