Default to the Steelers fans who questioned....

the Patriots opponant last weekend.

Dont get all brash about your "awesome" performance vs a Bengal team playing without Carson Palmer.

I mean, the Bengals offense wasnt exactly the same with Kitna now was it?

the real tests for will be this weekend. I'll be rooting for you against the Colts, although you can be sure CBS wont be. A Patriots at Colts AFC title game is a Network wet dream.

the great thing is with the Patriot game being played on Saturday night, assuming they win, i'll be able to enjoy the Colts-Steelers game and hope for a 33-30 triple OT slufest.

Please win i can laugh at the invincible Colts losing in their first playoff game. that would be hysterical. then again, it would be great to have the Patriots march into the RCA Dome and shut those morons up.

I just have no respect for the Colts. I cant help it. The Steelers are worthy foes. The Colts are a soft pretender every year.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet...first playoff games for QB's haven't traditionally been kind. How do we know that Kitna, who played a playoff game for Seattle, wasn't ultimately better than Palmer in the end? Look at Eli. He was awful. Look at Ben '04 vs. Ben '05.

Palmer may have tossed 3 INT's and the score might have been 48-17...who knows?

Palmer's injury shouldn't hurt Cincy, things happen, its a game. Sure it was a shocker, Kitna came in, and he did well... Until the 2nd half.

Thing is we scored over the Bengals D!!! So what would have changed if Palmer was never hurt? Maybe some points put up but our D wouldnt have just layed down and let them score all over the place you can bet on that. This is just stupid to me that people are saying we only won the game because of Palmer's injury.

im sure you didnt read through all the in game thread but 1st thing i thought when kitna came into the game was bledsoe vs. steelers in 2001. then when they had a 10 pt lead on us twice i was hoping the steelers didnt think they had an advantage with palmer out.

i picked all the games last week with the qb who had more experience and foolishly believed 1 would buck the trend so i picked eli over carolina. how wrong i was. i probably will pick against grossman this week even though i really like the bears based on the fact that 1st time playoff starters seem to do poorly against those with experience.

experience is definitely not over rated in the playoffs. just ask tom brady. he dont even have to show up hes so experienced.
