Thumbs up What a difference a year makes!!!!!

There was January 23, 2005, New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers for the Patriots' AFC championship crown. Man, it was a real d n shame to see the Patriots for the second time in four years hoist the Lamar Hunt trophy in the Steelers backyard on the confines of Heinz Field.

---one year later---

There was January 22, 2006, Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers. It was one thing to lose to the Broncos in the 1997 AFC championship thanks to two d ning phantom pass interference calls before halftime. Then there was a three-point loss on the foot of Jason Elam. THIS TIME...no phantom PI calls and no game-clinching FG on Elam's leg...Roethlisberger plays the game of his LIFE, Cedrick Wilson tortures the secondary, Joey Porter played like the mother in' animal he was, the offense, defense, and special teams were on (to steal a Hillgroveism) FIRE, Bettis returned to his hometown and the Steelers BEAT A DEAD HORSE called the Broncos 34-17 at Mile High Stadium while on their way to conquering the conference and winning their fifth Super Bowl championship!!!!!

Ha! Ha! Ha! Too bad the Cleveland Browns and their fans will never find out what it is like to beat the Denver Broncos to win the AFC championship..they failed THREE out of FOUR years (1986, 1987 and 1989) to hoist the trophy, two of those in Denver!!!!!

Now who wants to ride with the black and gold?!?!?!?!?!

GO STEELERS!!!!! Six AFC titles, five Super Bowl championships, and numerous division championships!!!!!!

Default Re: What a difference a year makes!!!!!

I'm inclined to say what a difference 10 years makes. I've attended AFC Championship games in Pittsburgh against the Chargers, Colts, Broncos, and Patriots-2001. As you know they were all losses except for the Colts game which came down to the Jim Harbaugh Hail-Mary pass that almost connected. Long-time sufferer here.

I stopped attending the playoff games because I truley believed that I was a fricking jinx.
I believe that a more applicable title to this thread would be, "WHAT A DIFFERENCE A "REAL" QUARTERBACK MAKES"! In my mind he's been all the difference. Those Steelers title-losing teams of the past had better defenses and a better running game but their achilles heel was always the BEE-OTCH that played the position of QB.

I'm happy for Bill Cowher. The man has always fielded a great defense and running game. Now that he has Roethlisberger, they can take each other to Canton, Ohio.
