Default Denver Bottleneck.

Ryan Clark seems to not be the only one with issues playing here.

With the exception of the 2005 AFC Championship, the Steelers have had a hard time beating Denver lately.

2003- Lost 17-14 in Denver
2006- Lost 31-20 in Pittsburgh. SIX turnovers kills a 400+ effort by Ben.
2007- Lost 31-28 in Denver. Made Denver D look like Steel Curtain. Couldn't stop Cutler on D.

And it's not going to get any easier this time. This time Denver is actually a surprisingly good team. Kyle Orton is managing things and their D has an attitude.

There's a really bad bottleneck at I-225 and Parker Road I have to drive through every day. Oh, never mind - different kind of "Denver bottleneck."

On a serious note, this will be the first Monday night football game I've ever been to in person, so I'm looking forward to it.

with the excpetion of the 2006 game, they're 1-2 in Denver with the 2 loses being a FG each (even with a 6 turnover game).

Coincidence? I think not.

That bottleneck may be for Denver. They play the ratbirds the week before they play us, and then us coming off a BYE week. Seems like the abuse is going to come quickly. While the ratbirds seem to be mediocre at best this year, they still bring the hammer.

We strolled into Denver in the 2005 playoffs and beat Jake the Snake. Game was over in the thrid quarter. I think we went on to win a couple more road games after that.

The good news: Tomlin is 10-1 in primetime games.

The bad news: The only loss was in Denver (as you pointed out).

When we lost to Cutler it was the same year we lost to the Jets and Cardinals in the regular season. We were losing to teams we shouldn't have lost to that year, Denver Included.

I fear NOT the Broncos!

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!

We are going to break their wills and bring that rookie coach back to reality! Pretty sure we destroyed his offense last year when he was coaching another team.
