Dude, you really need to try and stop making yourself feel better with posts like that

There is not a player in our locker room or coach or trainer for that matter that believes this game isnt anything but 0-0..and nothing is won yet. We are carrying that same mentality of us against the world right through sunday without missing a beat.

And far as us Steeler fans hanging on past accomplishments.. i hardly think so.. sure we've had alot of success in Cowher's tenure, but no SB rings, and this is what its all about. Stats be damned, we're coming to get ya and win the Super Bowl

Do it better than The Steelers offense. Minimize mistakes. Special teams play keeps the big play from breaking out.
Now you are starting to see the light. Gameplan well and hope your offense plays flawlesly against the best D they've faced all year. But, that's only half the equation...you must also figure out how to make YOUR bend don't break defense actually not break. Cincy's D was reminiscent of Seattle's, and they broke. Indy's was slightly better, and they broke. Denver's was even better, and, well...Special teams can be a killer, too. Being in a dome means you won't get the free pass 37 yardline starting field position Jeff Reed usually allows in the outdoors. ARE can KILL you with one run.

Good team...but just good. As the game approaches, I honestly feel like the Steelers are truly a team of destiny this year. It's not a bad draw for the Hawks. They get some big-time exposure, pick up some bandwagoners, sell some merchandise and make that big blip on the radar. They are good enough to make a game out of it, too.

Seattle is on one....your team better get out of the way. It will be a fight to the end.

If anyone has an "us against the world" mentality and reason for it, it's the 'Hawks. We have been dissed (and I understand why) for 30 years. It is time to rectify that, and that time is this Sunday. Sorry, but the Steelers are not against the world, the world is on your side this time. Y'all are the favorites. Believe me, it's the Seahawks against the world, not the Steelers.

Now, he faces arguably the best run defense in the NFL. I don't think you'll see Alexander hit the century mark unless he rips off a 40 yarder on a single play.

Alexander and the Seattle O-line are both very good. However, the Steeler front 7 have been playing lights out for the past 7 games. 12 sacks over the past 3 games. The Broncos had the NFL's 2nd ranked rush offense and arguable one of the best O-lines in the game. The Steelers embarassed them on their own field. The question is not IF Farrior, Haggans and Porter will get to Hasselback....its how many times. The real question is can the Seattle defense stop the Steeler running game and get to Roethlisberger. They lead the NFL in sacks, but have only 4 to show for their efforts over the past 2 games. If you cannot sack Roeth, things will get ugly. Roethlisberger has thrived under pressure since returning from his injury. Pressure will not be enough.

Just being a "good" team will make the agony of the Steeler lose that much more painful.

That is so weird, because the closer the game gets, we too feel like we are the team of destiny....and personally I can't wait to hear the excuses of why we won the game. It will be anything but credit to the Seahawks. The Steelers have not faced an offensive line or QB up to the caliber of the Seahawks yet this year either.....if you think you have, you have another thing coming this Sunday. Your QB will have to figure out a way to get into the end zone. We have the best red zone D in the league. And our QB is outstanding in the red zone too...there is no rattling Hasselbeck this year. Good luck trying.

The guys who know, the guys who will put all out on the field, will determine the outcome. Statistics do nothing except work within a computer to predict behavior.

So, if it feels good to bring out statistics card keep feeling good because come Sunday you wont have anything left to take the sting off a SB defeat. Unless, of course, it's to make excuses for why the Seahawks triumphed.
Question: Who do you think the rest of America....those who do not have an team in this game....think has the "heart" factor on their side going into this game....Seattle or Pittsburgh?

Seattle....beat the #5 and #6 at home?

Pittsburgh.....beat the #1, #2 and #3 on the road?

Then throw in the Bettis factor and Roethlisberger's promise to get him to the Super Bowl. And throw in the fact that Detroit has become Pittsburgh and the Super Bowl crowd will partisan Steelers.

Not saying Seattle doesn't have heart....just that Pittsburgh's is overflowing right now. I wouldn't want to be facing the Steelers right now. As Mike Ditka stated....this team just smells like destiny.

Seahawks fans....cmon don't play on us Steelers fans for puttin up stats and tell us it's all bout heart and blahblah. You guys have put up just as many stats of your own to make a case. Stats can be twisted any which way to make any team seem stronger and more dominant and you are right that stats don't affect actual behavior on da field. But if you want to talk about heart look at this Steelers team. I have never in my short life seen any team that has been so united and devoted to each other, their coach, and their city. In the Super Bowl both teams could be considered da rookies for different reasons but it comes to a team that has been workin their way towards this game for several years perfectin their play it comes out to da Steelers. Good for da seahawks for gettin this far. I was shocked at seein them come this far. My first thought when seein them play this year was "Da seahawks? When da f**k did they get good?" So respect for comin this far but we comin to bring some hurt. Just ask Peyton or Plummer if they are still sore. Good luck.

BuFu

Oh please. The Denver Broncos had one of the very best O-lines coming to that game....and they were eaten up. Seattle averaged 153.6 yards per game rushing this year....Denver averaged 158.7. Since Denver has Mike Anderson who was NOT MVP, we must conclude that Denver's O-line had MORE of an effect on their rushing game than did Seattle's. Therefore your statement that the Steelers have not faced an offensive line up to the caliber of the Seahawks yet this year is simply wrong. In fact, since the Steelers beat both Carson Palmer AND Peyton Manning....BOTH on the road, your assertion that the Steelers have not faced a QB up to the caliber of the Seahawks is also painfully incorrect.

You seem to believe that Seattle's redzone defense will somehow keep the Steelers out of the endzone. Problem is, Seattle's secondary has been mediocre all year. Seattle's defense finished the year ranked 17th in total defense and 25th in pass defense. Since they lead the league in sacks, this should be a troubling number for Seattle fans. Roethlisberger has shown over the past 3 games that the passing game has evolved for Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's pass defense is so much improved over the first half of the season. A majority of their 12 sacks over the past 3 games must be credited as cover sacks. QB's have just not found open receivers and have ended up on their backsides as a result. The Steelers have allowed only 15 passing TD's all year. Therefore, the real question should be will Hasselback find the endzone at all.

How is Seattle shown its a team of destiny? What in the world makes you say this?

Yes, the Seahawks are a team of destiny as well. They are destined to lose their first Super Bowl appearance.
