The Ben tackle was, is, and always will be media hype. That game was a blow-out except for a few bad calls and a little bad luck...I'm trying to forget that play and haven't been allowed.

For me it wasn't one play, but one drive, and it was in the Chargers game. We'd already been cursed by the officials and had several calls go against us, then Ben got hit and (little did we know at the time) was actually injured. He finished that game hurt, and mustered a beautiful drive from our own 38 into Reed's FG range on MNF in a hostile environment and the Steelers stole a game that we weren't suppose to win. Champions go into hostile environments on the road and overcome bad calls and all kinds of adversity, and, By God, we did that in San Diego...And we were Champions this year...

i liked the 80 yd pass from ben to ward to answer an early deficit against the patriots. it showed alot of poise from ben and seemed to me that he put the afc champ game loss behind him. at the time i was sure the pats would lose and was looking at it as a changing of the guard almost. it validated hines contract too.

on defense: brett farve getting stuck and putting the ball on the ground for polamalu.

playoffs: the throwback and td to wilson against the bengals. that play looked like it was in slo motion and ben nor wilson seemed to have anyone 10 yards around them. it was almost surreal and the 1st hint that the steelers had offensively arrived with the big offensive dogs.

And that game did two things for me...it gave me some understanding of why Seattle MIGHT complain a little, and proved to me that MY team was good enough to overcome some adversity where they hadn't been able to before...it takes time to forge a Champion.

Most memorable play for me would be any of Willies long TD runs, vs Cleve. and Seattle. But if we are talking biggest play of the season, most definately would be Bens tackle.

Had to be the Randle El lateral back to Ben, and the TD to Wilson. No one saw that play coming, and it was perfect, and it was against the bungles... it was the last nail in the coffin against them, and proved "oh snap, we have to watch out for these steelers, they aren't here just by a fluke".

My favorite was the first down play when they ran the ball.

Two other plays that stand out to me are Willie Parker's 48 yard screen pass and his 45 yard run against the Titans in week one... It was the first time you really got to see what Willie brings to the table. Titans coach Jeff Fisher later said he was the fastest player he has ever seen.

Easily a memorable moment was Maddox's INT to lose the game in JAX... who knows how the could have effected our season for the worse believe it or not.
