Default Steelers shot for SB #6

In looking at the competition, I believe the Steelers have a better than average shot at winning it all this year. We have our problems this year, but so does every other team. Besides ourselves, the teams that most are talking about winning it all, we've either beaten or should have beaten.

Giants- This game was ours until a bad snap on a punt in the 4th quarter. We lost the turnover battle 4-0 and had a bad snap safety and still could have won this game.

Colts- Lost the turnover battle 3-0. 2 INT's very deep in our territory turned into 14 points. One right before half was the killer. Don't forget the fluky Ike tip ball to Wayne for a 67 yard touchdown.

Titans- Lost the turnover battle 4-0 turned into 21 points. Led this game until late in the 3rd.

Chargers- Won a close hard fought game.

Ravens- Won 2 close hard fought games.

With our defense, our offense doesn't have to put up gaudy numbers. Protecting the ball is the crucial element. The common theme in our losses was multiple turnovers turned into points. Our defense will keep us close against any of our opponents.

I think the Giants would have been the consensus favorite. And most TV guys keep saying losing Plex is no big deal, that they can win without him. They've proven they can, but I honestly think losing him costs this team the Superbowl. It's not the 5 or 6 catches for 80 yards. It's the fact that a defense doesn't have to account for that big target, deep threat. If we play them again, TP doesn't have to worry about the double team. He would be free to stuff the run, blitz, or take an chance on an angle for an INT. I think this evens the field in the NFC and could see someone else end up in the SB.

AFC is a crap shoot. I'll take our defense and hope we don't commit the costly mistake on offense.

The only team that scares me in the playoffs right now is the Colts. We could win the TO battle, and Manning can still pass them to victory no matter how much of a lead we get on them.

I feel confident with Lefty under center, the guy is comparable to Ben in almost every characteristic, despite being less mobile than Ben. But, I feel even more confident with our defense leading the way!

I think the Panthers are the team I would hate the most to face in the Superbowl. Something about their HUGE receivers always gives our secondary fits!

It's as if Hollywood had written the script.......but I guess they already did, in 2005.

(Now, when are they going to make a movie about that? - I can already see LL Cool Jay as The Bus! )

You never know what's gonna happen. The Superbowl winner will probably be a surprise.
